Costly cast - blew 2 motherboards

Martin, dabs.com
27 July 2009
  • Summary: I've had 2 of these, and to be honest, the first was great, that's why I bought the second. Sadly the second blew the first motherboard I put in it. I suspected the board at first, but after ordering another, well, it blew that too. Unfortunately I had a few months break before I could really look at it again, and it's too late to return them, so all in all this case has cost me nearly £200. Ouch!

Think carefully....

  • Summary: I purchased 3 of the previous version of this case (with the 300watt PSU) 6 months ago. It is a solid, neat looking and well made case, and until recently I would have given it 5 stars. Unfortunately 4 weeks ago a PSU in one of the cases failed, and Dabs have been unable to provide a warranty repair or replacement. Today the PSU in a second of the 3 cases has failed. PSUs are probably the most unreliable part of a PC.

Mixed feelings

  • Summary: Pluses-Top and sides easily removable for access, typical Antec construction, very sturdy and should be quiet and fit under TV well Minuses-internal power leads VERY short, 3SATA 4molex. No 6pin 12v for planned graphics card! Tight to work in but I expected that.

Small but flawed

  • Summary: I bought this to house an old Athlon 2200 Mobo for use as a media centre PC. Installation was easy, apart from the poor quality clips mentioned by another reviewer. The power cables are very short - if your mobo has the power connector on the 'front' side of the board you might struggle to make it reach. The PSU is small and the 12cm fan is quiet, but the CPU sits partially underneath the PSU which limits your choice of CPU cooler.

Great case - replacement PSU pricey

A M, dabs.com

  • Summary: I had the predecessor for 5 years + with no problems, but the PSU has just started to die. Unfortunately a replacement PSU is about £50! (and I can only find it in one place). Trouble is I can't find any equivalent sized case so will probably buy another!

Amazingly fiddly...

  • Summary: This is a very nice looking case and quite small. All the parts I bought fitted in nicely with just enough room for airflow. The only bad thing I have to say about this case is that the motherboard posts are absolutely terrible. It uses snap fit clips, which don’t fit correctly. After about an hour I finally got them all in and got them to stay in after bending the parts of the case they fit into. WHY NOT JUST USE SCREW IN ONES.

Great little box!

Russ, dabs.com

  • Summary: I got this to build a modest spec unobtrusive second machine. With a £40 MATX mobo (MSI P6NGM-FD) using onboard graphics, £104 CPU (Core 2 Duo E6550) with supplied fan, £16 of RAM (Kingston 1GB DDRII 800MHz), and a £30 SATA 200GB HDD, I have ended up with a nifty little machine that speed-wise knocks spots off my main machine (3GHz P4 HT), yet runs virtually silent and as cool as a cucumber.

Great Case

  • Summary: This is my first purchase of a cube style case and i'm very impressed. Its small enough and quiet enough (almost silent)to be used as a media center, at the same time its got room for several expansion cards. My previous media center cpu idled at 45C this sits at about 30C (Athlon x2 4000+ in both systems).

Toujours le vent en poupe

  • Excerpt: J'avais acheté ce boitier en avril 2008 pour monter un petit Media Center. Avec la montée en puissance des box ADSL, j'ai reconverti ce boitier pour mon PC de bureau en 2012 avec une configuration un peu plus musclée : - AMD Athlon™ II X4 640 (TDP 95W) - Gigabyte GA-880GM-UD2H - G.Skill Kit Extreme3 2 x 4 Go PC12800 - Sapphire HD6670 1024 Mo G-DDR5 - Graveur DVD, deux disques durs et une carte Wifi... - le tout migré sous Windows 8 depuis.

Mycket bra

  • Summary: Mycket bra chassi, har dock konkurrans av Sugo-serien från Silverstone. Nackdelen är lite korta strömkablar (samt endast 3st HDD-platser och 3st SATA-power). Jag håller på att modda mitt så att jag får plats med totalt 7 diskar (ingen optisk enhet), genom att ha alla "hängandes" i HDD-buren precis som de två yttersta. Kvalitén på chassit kunde varit bättre (plast-topp!, men alu-sidor).
