Antec could do better

Warren D., Newegg
14 October 2011
  • Summary: The harddrive tray could have easily been designed to accept 1 3.5 inch harddrive
  • Pros: Antec makes a good heavy steel case Looks nice Well ventilated
  • Cons: Plastic extention in front unnecessary Antec - when are you going to come into the 21 century Stop using large molex connectors for fans And please never use molex connector for power light No provision for message light for sleep or standby

Decent Case

Michael O., Newegg
16 July 2011
  • Summary: none
  • Pros: Does the job, relatively good price, pretty good amount of space for being mini-ITX, solid construction
  • Cons: Somewhat large for a m-ITX case but that is a trade off for the additional drive bays. Biggest problem is the power supply cord isn't long enough for some Intel Atom boards. This is easily fixed with one of these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812186072

Nice Little Project...

Mark M., Newegg
17 April 2011
  • Summary: I built a PC using this case as a workstation (to complement my HTPC) and it works well after some serious cable management (military style -- lots of zip ties!). I was able to obtain unimpeded airflow through the case with this cable management technique. Without cable management, the wires could easily get caught in the CPU fan (as with any Mini-ITX case).
  • Pros: -- Great layout and organization for Mini-ITX form factor SFF PC. -- Use of slim optical drive lowers space considerations -- Optional 80mm fan adds cooling capacity (in addition to the installed 80mm Antec Tri-Cool) -- 150W PSU is good for 2 hard drives, optical drive and (max) 65W TDP CPU -- Front eSata, USB and HD audio. -- Internal cables for PSU, and front panel connections are short so excessive slack is not an issue.
  • Cons: -- Optional fan spacer clips block installation of motherboard. (I removed this anyway to install a fan) -- Power cable from mains to PSU blocks impedes long expansion card installation -- Optical drive sits a little high on the tray -- the drive bezel scrapes the top of the opening in the case. (Washers screws solved this problem.) -- Installation of 2.5" HDD requires insulating cardboard (provided) under the drive to protect against short circuiting the drive. (Don'...

Good case with a few minor annoyances

Eric Y., Newegg
22 June 2010
  • Summary: You probably won't need all the connections of the built in power supply so you'll need to manage any extra cables well to maximize airflow. Optionally, you could remove the internal PSU and fit it for an external power supply instead for plenty of room.
  • Pros: This low profile case, with built in power supply and room for a half-height slot was exactly what I was looking for. Some people might have a problem with the length of the case, but it is perfect for me. I went with a Slot Load slim 5.25" drive so there are no moving parts of the drive that could interfere with the front panel bay cover. There are plenty of connections on the power supply (4x SATA, 1x mini SATA, 2x molex, 2etc). This may be a con for you if you don'...
  • Cons: Front panel did not have a protective film and looked slightly roughed up. It isn't really noticeable from the distance I will be from it though. A hard, slick, front panel cover would have be better and look nicer. You can only attach the slim 5.25" drive to the case with 1 screw and from one side (left side of the drive). So, the drive can feel a little flimsy when pressing your drive button (due to the torque you are applying). If it were possible to fasten both si...

Neat, compact, stylish ultra-small desktop

Amazon Customer, Amazon
27 January 2013
  • Summary: This is a great looking case, and surprisingly easy to work inside. I installed a Antec ISK 310-150 Mini-ITX Desktop motherboard, Intel i5 CPU and a 120GB SSD no problem. Opted to not have an optical drive at all, and would have like the option of a front fascia without the load bay for one. The fan on the PSU is audible, but it looks like a standard 80mm case fan is housed in there and one day I may have a go at replacing it.

Bra

MirzaC, Prisjakt
22 April 2014
  • Summary: Efter två år började nätaggsfläkten låta extremt mycket, förmodligen för att lagren gav sitt sista. Var tvungen att byta denna mot en noctua fläkt. OBS! Nätaggsfläkten sitter ansluten med tvåpinskontakt så lite modifikation krävs. Fläktarna är av sämre kvalité och låter en del. Har man en stor CPU kylare kan det hända att man inte får plats med hdd/CD vaggan. Modifikation med vinkelslip krävdes i mitt fall, då jag hade en Shuriken CPU kylare.

Mycket bra

mathiaspalm, Prisjakt
15 March 2014
  • Summary: Köpte detta chassi tillsammans med ett ASRock E350M1, en minimal ssd för OS och en flirc adapter för att använda min sony fjärr mot XBMC. Måste säga att jag är mycket nöjd med detta chassi. Som andra noterat är chassi fläkten som sitter långt fram till höger lite högljudd men helt acceptabel. Vid tillfälle kommer jag byta ut den, funderar på att stoppa in en slim bd spelare så det får bli samtidigt.

  • Summary: Har köpt denna för att bygga en mini-itx htpc och känns riktigt bra. Detta är den uppdaterade modellen som har USB 3.0 portar på fronten, samt inga störande "plastbitar" vid den extra fläktplatsen som annars kan störa passningen på moderkortet i vissa fall. Jag gjorde missen att inte köpa low profile minnen (köpte blåa corsair vengenance 2x4gb) och då gick det inte att montera i hårdiskvaggan, men det är knappast chassits fel..

  • Summary: Jag trodde fronten skulle vara i aluminium, men det är bara plast, så undrar jag hur länge plastluckan för cd/dvd kommer att hålla. I övrigt är det en stabil låda som var lite tyngre än jag väntat mig. Chassifläkten låter en del även på lägsta varvtalet, så jag kanske byter ut den så småningom. Fläkten i nätagget är helt OK.
