Overall

The MSI Raptor is a little different than most other cases in its price range. Rather than build a mid-priced case with no features they have taken a low budget case and packed it full of features. The Raptor has good quality fans, built in USB 3.0, and a card reader that are perfect for someone who is looking for a full featured case. You have to put up with thinner gauge metal and a little less wire management because of its price though. This case isn’t for everyone, but if you are looking for USB 3.0 at this price point you don’t have many cases to consider. This is obviously only a starting point for MSI’s case lineup; I can’t wait to see what they come out with as they try their hand at higher budget cases.

You might call him obsessed or just a hardcore geek. Wes's obsession with gaming hardware and gadgets isn't anything new, he could be found taking things apart even as a child. When not poking around in PC's he can be found playing League of Legions, Awesomenauts, or Civilization 5 or watching a wide variety of TV shows and Movies. A car guy at heart, the same things that draw him into tweaking cars apply when building good looking fast computers.

BTW take a good look at the space between the motherboard tray and the side panel. There just isn't any space for wiring, holes wouldn't be useful. Size wise its just to small to fit in wire management of that style. Its noticeably smaller than the "normal" mid tower for most people.

How about, no wire management. While it is a cheap case, it doesn't cost extra to cut holes in the motherboard tray. It would have been nice to see this included.

Loving the installed card readers along with the USB3 header. Not sure about the blue but it does stick with the MSI theme.

No fan filters either but again, cheap price, not gonna get many options. Atleast you can buy filters if you ever wanted to go down that road later. Then again, my case didn't come with filters and that was way more than this, lol.

Seems like a stout entry level case. Good to see MSI doing something different.
