Great little MiniITX case!

Bobjects,, TigerDirect.com
1 September 2013
  • Summary: I bought this case for a project that required a small form factor, and a slot for a full-height PCIe board. It turned out to be perfect! As others have noted, you really need to remove the power supply to mount the MiniITX motherboard, and once you do, there is just barely enough clearance to accommodate an Intel processor + Intel cooling fan. But it worked fine. My only complaint is that I would have liked to see a 2.5 inch HDD mount.

Nice inexpensive case

  • Summary: I got this case for an untangle gateway build. I only have a standard HD and the ITX board. I used the stock Intel cooler, which works fine on this build. There is just enough room between the PS and the cooler. Nice small footprint.

Nice little case

  • Summary: I have my home server running in this case. It runs an atom off a Zotac board, perfect for the case. The only issue is that I have a WD Caviar black drive and the hard drive location mounts it vertically. The hard drive started to make noises and I have in turn, set the case on its side so the hard drive is flat. I am planning on adding some more hard drives and I might have to upgrade this case.

Good Case, Pretty Tight

ALC,, TigerDirect.com

  • Summary: Good looking case, it fits perfectly for a Media Center. To build it I found very convenient first to remove the power supply (4 screws), connect everything inside, and finally re-install the power supply back. At the end the gap between the bottom of the power supply and the top of the CPU fan is just a few millimeters in one side.

Good living room system case

  • Summary: Tiny beautiful case, looks great in the living room right by the big TV. They looks perfect pair by their matching glossy panel Make sure donot use bulky heat sink or fan, since CPU and PSU have less than 50mm clearance - it is the trade off for the layout and the case size)- I use Silverstone NT07 heat sink and it works perfect I cancel the Dish Network and enjoy the program with my new computer

Great Case.. But pretty tight

happyking,, TigerDirect.com

  • Summary: The case seems good priced to be with a power supply as well. But as others noted, CPU fan sits really tight under the power supply. Some space would have been nice. The power supply cable on MOBO sits right where the drive cables are coming out.. another tight spot.But it can be made to work, not a bad case. Power switches seem to look finiky, front USB also seem a bit finiky.

good small case

ODDBALL667, TigerDirect.com

  • Summary: bought this case to build a computer for my mom she needed a small case and this one fits very well. once the parts were all inside it works fine no problems but if you are building a computer with this case you will want to remove the power supply first and don't put it back in until everything is in and hooked up including power, or you will have no room to work.

Very good value and works well

  • Summary: I bought this case for a new HTPC. The key feature for me is that it had space for two internal 3.5'' HDD bays and a 5.25'' bay for the Blu Ray drive. I installed a Gigabyte E-350 Fusion board and everything fitted without any problem. Only negative is that it gets a little hot without a case fan. Fitted a PCI card fan, at the lowest speed this keeps the case nice and cool, but it is too noisy for a HTPC. Will find a quieter alternative when I have some time.

Good Case

  • Summary: It is good looking case. It doesn't take a lot of space. Be careful of the bezel. I broke two pins on sides of the bezel. I took bezel apart too fast. Because of small size, I can't install a cooling fan. I only have cpu fan and PSU fan. Hopefully, it will not overheat. I put a Core i3 3.06 GHz in this small case.

Pretty good mini-ITX case

BBA, TigerDirect.com
30 April 2010
  • Summary: I bought the case to put a Zotac GF8200 AMD motherboard into. I intended to install one of the AM2 heatsinks that I had on hand. No Go. The power supply hangs right over the top of the heatsink and, in fact, keeps you from installing a normal one unless you wedge it in there. This case is poorly designed in that respect. I ended up having to buy a Silverstone NT-07 heatsink so there would be room for both the CPU and PSU (and there's still very little).
