Summary: I swapped out the stock fan and put 2 blue LED fans blowing air into the unit; the power supply is the only fan that blows air out--keeps dust from collecting inside, keeps it cool, and looks beautiful.
Summary: I built a mini-ITX HTPC with this case. Case is easy to work with and has a good layout. It was easy to build a perfectly silent HTPC with this case. Only problem I had was front LED light, I could never get working. I think for the price this is a great case choice for a mini-ITX build.
Pros: *quality build, good construction *good placement of tray *easy to work with
Cons: *not sure if front LED light is working correctly *there should be less cables since its a built-in power supply but its all workable
Summary: very well thought out case and super easy to build a computer in. Built a low cost HTPC with this case and was relatively an easy assembly process. The layout is very well designed with drives and cable runs and connections to the motherboard all in mind so very minimal build planning / redoing...
Summary: I've purchased over a hundred of these and have only had one bad power supply in the last three years. It's a toss up between this and the 310-150, they are nearly identical, my only issue with them is availability. It may be that Antec is phasing them out as they are both hard to find.
Pros: Small and reliable, I've built up to i5-4960 systems in them and the power supply does just fine
Summary: This was the first case of its type I've bought. I needed to setup a testing server and thought I'd give this a go. I added an internal solid state drive and its so quiet I often don't know that it's running.
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'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.
