Q: How do i remove the front panel of this case?
Answer by Website User on 7th February 2020
From the inside of the case you will see some plastic plugs (they are attached to the front panel and just friction fit in the chassis) just push those plugs and the front case will pop off.

Q: How to change the color of the led, in my case, it only has blue color.
Answer by Website User on 22nd March 2019
Unfortunately, we do not have information on the wiring on this system so we are unable to advise as we do not have a technical support team here.
1 customer found this answer helpful.
Answer by Website User on 13th May 2019
To Change the colour from the Default Blue colour you need to use the Wire that comes from the little circlular RESET switch on the case. Instead of plugging the RESET wire onto the reset pins on the Motherboard, you need to pull the front of the case off and you will see the LED Strip, on the back of the Strip is a White Plug, this White plug is already plugged in (which is why its already Blue) next to that white plug is a 2 pin black plug, you need to plug your RESET cable into that 2 Pin Black plug. this will now allow you to change the color of the LED strip using the reset button.

Answer by Website User on 7th February 2020
theirs an easier way to do this that has the same effect as described: so coming out of the LED strip there should be two sets of wires, we'll call the A and B. A is the longer one with a molex adaptor on the end and is used to power the led strip, B is the other wire and is shorter and (if it arrived like mine) should have a little 'adapter' on the end that exposes two metal pins that can be plugged into a socket, you dont actually need to plug it in anywhere however. Just make sure the LED strip is powered on and connect those two pins for a brief moment and the settings will be cycled through (you can connect them with anything, a spare wire or another piece of conductive metal).

The case is cheap and not really good for anything. Whoever designed the locations of the drives did not consider cable routing or applied any logic to how it will loo once all is installed. Quality of the case is questionable and airflow is horrible. Would i buy again? No. Only the hassle of returning it stopped me from returning it. But then, its cheap!


July 2020

Great value, had some trouble with the lights on the front but who really cares. The main attributes in terms of housing a computer are all there, very easy to work with for a first time build.

Roomy case, well built, ample room for an LED fan kit but looks cool with just the built in LED stripe on the front.

For the new beginners like me this case was perfect to install my motherboard and was very fast delivered

Believe me, it's worth the price

Be warned the case pictured does not come as shown and I was not impressed at all with the fact the side panel is flat and has no where to hide cables and ends up being a nightmare to close unless your using every psu cable or have a modular psu. Also there's a flaw it has no escape for the CPU Power so you have to route it up the side and all the way over the motherboard , not so bad if you have a long enough cable but if not factor in a 4/8 pin extension for the cable or you will have to drag it over the main board which looks bad on any build.The front panel connectors have no label but they are keyed so you can figure out whats what easy enough. It has some rough edges especially around cable threw holes and are sharp so watch out with tearing up braid, for the price I'd have given it another star as a perfect first gaming pc case if not for the misleading pictures making me think it had place for unused cables in the form of a side panel as pictured.

I bought this case and the CiT Beam Mid Tower at the same time both for the same price. This is the higher quality case due to it's glass side rather than plastic and it has a USB3 front port. It takes up to 7 slot motherboards rather than the smaller 4 slot ones. However this does not make it the more suitable case. See my CiT Beam review for why. This case is suitable for a more modern motherboard with USB 3 because otherwise you need to spend money on a USB2 to USB3 adaptor. You also need to spend money on a rear 120mm RGB fan. The hard drive mounting places are not very cleaver. If you're just mounting an SSD then no problem. I wanted a HDD as well and this then interfered with my HD5970 graphics card so I had to get creative and mount it on the outside under the front panel. A lot of hassle as it does not want to go there. The cables from the PSU are also exposed so you might want to use a modular PSU but then if you have that sort of money you should spend more on the case. Conclusion, hard to build in but looks and feels good when done. So mixed feelings about this case.

It us a very good case , abit delicate , you will need to be careful with the screws as they are a bit fragile.The rgb light in front is very good . I will recommend it .


May 2019

Nice looking case on the website hence purchased. But, don't be fooled. It DOES NOT have a raised side panel for the cables as shown on the website. It does not come with any instructions on how to correctly wire the front LED strip to be able to change the colours. The metal is extremely flimsy The drive mounting arrangement is a joke. This case looks nice, that is all. Spend 20/30 more and get a named brand Oh, and my front LED strip failed after 4 days.

Very nice case indeed, tempered glass side panel, rgb strip on the front, usb 3, good space for cable management although rear panel is flat. No space for a front fan if using a hdd.
