Summary: These units do make for a compact, good looking, and fairly quiet home or office computer. I installed an Asrock H67M-GE/HT motherboard with a 2500K intel Cpu. This makes for a remarkably fast a quiet unit that sits at table height and just to the left of my desk. PRO's: Very strongly build case with excellent fit and black shiney finish that does not show finger prints. The front red led display only shows temp and confirms that front fan and drives are spining.
Summary: I got this case because of its form factor. Everything went together well until I tried to put in the hard drive cage. It didn't fit!! Fortunately, I saw a review that mentioned that the hard drive cage could be installed in the space next to the power supply where the 3rd 80mm fan would go. That's where the hard drive cage ended up. This is the ONLY configuration that could possibly work. So the case designers need to change their design or description of the product.
Summary: If your a beginner in building PC's and have no patience - This is not for you. Guaranteed you will have problem choosing PSU and using HDD rack. Used OCZ PSU, Nvidia 9800 GTX, GA-p55m-ud2(hackintosh special), dual HDD, DVDRW, SATA 90 deg cables. I barely got it to fit without mod. This case only looks good if you cut out the shell and put plexiglass to showcase the inside otherwise its just another case.
Good Value and quality, poor drive bay door design
14 June 2010
Summary: Very compact design & sturdy material. Disappointed that the 2 drive bay doors are smaller, not allowing you to have the face of your drive to be flush with the front case. This unit conceals your drives. I tried to install a 5.25 media card reader, but it won't stick out the front as it's too small. Other then that, this is a great case.
Summary: I love this case but: 1) It will NOT hold a tall heatsink. Must be less than 4 inches tall, maybe 3.5. There is a metal floor to the top compartment. Probably should keep it as it can be used to tie your cables away from the board and fan. 2) The stock fan (there is ONE 120mm one) is so-so, noise-wise. 3) The hard drive indicator is an LCD picture of a fan, which I think is a little dumb. There are also some good tihngs to know: The 3.5 mount can hold 2 drives.
Summary: Great Unit, but be very careful choosing a power source. 140mm depth is the limit and it takes regular ATX, not Micro ATX power source. Got a 150mm Ultra and had to rearrange a few internal trays to make it work.
Summary: This case has proved to be pretty good. Only suffered 1 back of the hand scratch, the cables supplied for the front i/o are nice and long. The supplied 120 fan is quiet. Case is a fingerprint magnet. The only problem I have is with the lcd screen not displaying the temp properly. Heard it was an issue before I bought, but don't care. The case itself is nice enough w/o it.
Summary: The LCD display did not work. I hear that is common on this case, however, I didn't want the Display on anyway, they are too bright. The case is easy to work with and I build micro motherboard computers all the time. I would buy this case again.
