Summary: Great SFF case. Although the description says usb 2.0 mine came with the updated version that has usb 3.0 on the front. It also has the usb 2.0 connecters inside so if your mb does not have usb 3.0 you can still use the ports as usb 2.0.
Summary: I bought this case as an always-online small form factor server. The manual-set case fan works well enough to keep the system cool when I set it respectively, and it seems to have some slightly automatic adjustment, but I wish I was fully automatic and didn't require any attention.
Summary: Nice case ... is a bit crowded, so cable management is pretty important ESPECIALLY if you are installing a CD/DVD ROM. It is almost silent while running. have only run i3 processors in this, not sure how much louder an i5 or i7 would be.
Summary: Antec ISK 110 was a better choice for me. I like the external power supply...less heat in the case.
Pros: Compact case with built in power supply. All the cables and plugs reached perfectly, albeit with large hands it's quite a challenge to work in these tiny spaces.
Cons: I actually had to take the hard drive mounting bracket and use the grinder on it out in the shop in order to get it to fit back in the case over the CPU fan (AMD A10-7850K). I had to grind away one entire corner of the bracket in order for it to back in once the CPU fan was in place. Terrible des...
Pros: This case is very small inside so it will be very cramped inside once you place everything, cable planning/routing must be a very thorough process before starting the build. I built a HTPC with a Intel Core i5-4570S Haswell and ASUS H87I-PLUS LGA 1150 Intel H87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX In...
Cons: Some very sharp edges on some of the internal support pieces required a little filing to keep from cutting cables and hands during build process. The plastic cover over the CD drive is pretty flimsy and with repeated unlocking will most likely break the mechanism.
Summary: This is a great compact case. It's fairly quiet and well vented but extremely time consuming to build since almost the whole case needs to be disassembled. At least I only have to build it once. It usually only takes me 10-15 minutes to build a PC, but this took a couple hours.
Summary: I've never worked with a format this small, but I'm intimately familiar with the nuances of different box sizes and shapes. I would not crowd too much into this box but as the container for my HTPC, this is a nice addition to my living room shelf.
