Super cheap
Insides not painted
Cheapest case I found at NCIX at the time of purchase. Has enough room inside for a budget oriented gaming build. No frills, wish at least the back was painted however.

Simple look - Very cheap - Front USB headers
No USB 3.0 - Clumped up inside - No cable management
You get what you get for the price. Very cheap which makes it not the best case on the market but it makes it a case thats all the matters I guess. I would much rather a side window and a cool looking front but instead this is just a simple looking as a cheap dell tower. Found it extremely irritating trying to move everything around to get the screws in the motherboard and the video card it the cable management is also terrible in this one. There is cables EVERYWHERE. Almost glad it don't have a side window now haha. I would recommend for a budget system though as you want to worry about the PSU, Video Card, and CPU before you worry about the case. Thats something that can be upgraded over time. 4/5 starts just because its very good for its price and I would definitely get it again if I was to build another 300-400 dollar system.

Lightweight, cheap, good looking exterior and front panel
Uneven construction, flimsy covers, thin steel
I bought this case for a cheap mATX build with an Intel G3258 and whatever I could salvage around the house.

The case is very light, and has a simple and unassuming look which I am impressed by. I managed to fit in an old GTX460v2, an MSI H87M-G43 board and a Seasonic S12-II 520W PSU without issues, so there's adequate space inside the case. Unfortunately, there's a reason why this case is so much cheaper than other mATX cases, and that's because of the very thin steel used in the construction.

After tossing in all the parts and standing the case upright, I found that the feet were unbalanced and the case wobbles like an uneven table in an old pub. Also, putting the side covers back on proved to be more challenging than expected, because the covers are thin enough that they can warp without much difficulty and throw the locking guides out of alignment.

Other than that, this case is fine for the price. The motherboard standoffs provided with the case were just barely enough for my board. It would have been nice if there were two or three more for the rest of the motherboard screws, but I made do just fine by spreading them out appropriately. The PCI port covers at the back also cannot be put back once removed, but this wasn't a big deal to me since I don't plan to upgrade anything inside in the future.

If I needed to build another small budget machine, I definitely would go for this case again.

plenty of drive bays & locations
very nice front panel look
sheet metal is kind of thin
fans are only 92mm (front + rear), but i guess it's ok for a compact build
*** update  / edit ***

ok, after having bought the second case, some additional info:

the case really is handy if you want a mix of 5.25, 3.5, and 2.5 drives,but watch out for your motherboard size & ports

one mATX board that i have fits, but ONLY if i install it before i put in any hard drives. with that same board, i have to then figure out a specific order of installing parts - mobo first, then hard drive, then cables, then CPU cooler.

it makes for a tight fit (which keeps everything compact), but either plan out how you'll assemble it, or be prepared to have to take things apart every few steps just to redo it in a different order.

the end result is great, but it definitely can't be assembled randomly!!!


i bought one of these plus a Fractal Core 1100 for a few compact builds. i opened this box first, and after a few hours of building the first system i decided that the Core 1100 is going back and i'm buying another VSK-3000E. i have a Core 1500 so i kind of know what to expect.

yes, the Core is nicer looking and has thicker metal panels, BUT the VSK gives me better drive mounting options - mostly since it adds an EXTERNAL 3.5" for a floppy / card reader, and has an extra spot for a 2.5" drive (SSD or laptop HDD). that last spot isn't easy to see in the pics, but it's basically four small tabs below the whole drive cage assembly. it's BRILLIANT.

also, front panel is dual USB2.0, instead of a Core 1100's weird USB2/USB3 mix (one of each). really? ONE of each? all mobo headers are for DUAL connectors.

Solid cheap case.
This is a solid, unassuming cheap case. I bought for my parent's computer and it works great!

Cheap, conservative, light, simple
-Very- sharp edges, no thumbscrews, cheap looking
Hey, for $30 its the only case I would get at that price, but it really is reflected in the build materials. Cheap thin steel, and sharp punch-stamped edges. Absolutely no-frills.

The only redeeming quality that helps is at least the front panel is conservative and modern looking. It's light too.

If you absolutely can't pay $60 for something with some quality, then at least this won't be a gaudy disgrace like some cheap "gaming" type cases out there.

But I have to call it a 3 star, it is simply, only, "satisfactory".

Somewhat flimsy
Given the price, it's a pretty good case. It has decent build quality, but some of the internal panels are flimsy. Be careful because there are sharp edges inside the case, not all rolled like some have stated. Nice looking case as well, for a low budget build this is a good choice. But for anything else, spend a bit more on a better quality case.

Cheap, light
This is not a high-end case but I rate it 5/5 for its intended role as an inexpensive case. The system was easy to assemble and cable management options were acceptable - I crammed everything into the 5.25" drive bays. Unbelievable quality for $30.

Was prepared to tape my SSD to the bottom but the case has a 2.5" HDD mount under the 3.5" cage not listed in the specifications.

nice paint job, roomy
mobo screws are hard to screw in, might not fit. pci covers in the back are not reusable, once you remove it thats that.
cover is a bit flimsy, bends. when screwing in the mobo, 3 of the 6 screws/stilts were super tight and required a lot of strength to screw in, one of which would not go in no matter how hard i tried, so my mobo is only supported by 5/6 screws as of now, not a super huge problem since its a middle screw, but you're pretty screwed if it's a corner screw that doesnt work for you. decent case, comes with a fence. no filters or anything.
