Summary: Lots of room and mounting points. The drive mounts and cage are removable and the 5.25 drive bay makes an excellent place to hide excess cables. The finish was better than most other high dollar cases I've bought. The smaller 80mm fan is a it stronger than expected and the bracket attached to it is quite sturdy. Both pre-installed fans come with both Molex and standard fan connectors so the lack of headers on the motherboard isnt an issue.
Summary: I cut out the HDD cage and installed 2x Zalman LQ-320 LCS systems (120x120x52mm radiators) below the 5.25" bay overhang (rads mounted by drilling through the bay). That's double-width rads for those keeping score at home.
Pros: This case is, for the money, unbeatable in the mini ITX space. Sure you can get more features and thicker steel/aluminum with more money, but for under $40? It's the leading model.
Cons: These aren't really cons. Consider them comments/feedback.
Summary: This case was a pleasant surprise. Any itx case is going to have some tight fits, but the way this case is laid out, I encountered no unpleasant surprises. You just have to plan ahead and get the order of assembly right, and that is true of any case. There are enough cooling options to handle almost any situation. Fit and finish are very good, and attention to details is really appreciated.
Great case, good price, a must have for a mini-itx build

Summary: Amazing case. Very good quality. My first mini-itx build and I love this size. I also love that it allows for a full size power supply and dvd drive. and plenty of room for a full size graphics card.
