Pros
Still looking for one good thing to say about this case.
Cons
Clear misrepresentations by manufacturer:
- pictures (on manu's website, NCIX listing and packaging) show 10 tool-less drive retainer. Case only comes with 4.
- pictures show two fans (1 front, 1 rear). Case only comes with rear fan.
- pictures show mainboard tray cutouts and bulged side panel behind tray, giving the impression of cable management possibilities. Space behind tray is barely adequate for a single 20 ga. wire, so cable management is a non starter.
- advertised as having 4 5.25" external bays. However, top mounted USB/Audio/Power-reset blocks top bay.
- advertised as having 2.5" drive mounting option. Actually has four screw holes in bottom of case at the lowest 3.5" drive bay.Who in their right mind wouldmount a drive this way?
- Comes with only 7 mainboard offset screws. Last time I checked every ATX and mATX mainboard required 9 screw to mount securely. Included offsets are non-standard (short) length. If you don't have them already, good luck finding them.
- has top ventilation for 2 120/140mm fans. Due to the design of the mainboard tray, any fans mounted here on the interior are likely to contact mainboard component and will prevent using anything but a small air cooler. this problem is made worse by the dimpled mounting holes meant for 120mm fans, which prevent 120mm fans from sealing with the top of the case and may interfere with the blades on 140mm fans.

Other problems:
- Top-mounted USB 3.0 ports do not work. This is a universal complaint from any reviews I've read of this case,
- Top-mounted power button functions erratically. Many reviewers report this button fails completely in as little as 3 months,
- lowest expansion slot (of 7) too close to bottom-mounted PSU. Only the slimmest cards will fit here and they will receive no air circulation.
- Bottom ventilation for PSU and a 120mm is useless. the case feet only allow 5mm of clearance below the case for air intake and the installed filter requires the removal of the PSU and the 120mm fan to remove the filter.
Summary
The list of inadequacies goes well beyond what I have listed here. The lack of engineering and testing that went into this case makes it the most craptastic case I have ever seen. I would have RMA'd this case within hours of receiving it but the shippimg costs (initial shipping + return shipping) would hit $35.00 (which is about $50 more than this case is worth) and would leave me with nothing in-hand. As it it is, I'll keep it around for those moments of frustration when only a 5 lb sledge hitting metal will restore my inner balance. Even rating this POS 1-star, is grossly over-valueing this junk.
