Summary: The case is fine, except for the damage front panel. A little crack, just have to be careful with it. The case is just perfect for a mini ATX. Say good-buy to the full tower case. Say hello to my little friend.
Summary: I ordered a microwave? Is what I said to my self when I came home and saw this at my door steps. At first I did not like the size of this case. Then after building my pc, I realized it would have been a pain to have built it with a smaller case. The design could have been better. Front panel is the major flaw in this design. It restrict too much air flow. Plastic leg pegs don't do anything. this thing slides all over the place. Rubber legs would have worked better.
Good small form factor case but needs better cooling.

Summary: I am using this case temporary until my custom m-itx case is finished. The quality of the case is okay, they can improve the paint but for the price I paid (under $40 bucks) I cannot complain. Building with this case was fun but they definitely need to improve the air flow for this model because the front panel restricts too much air. Currently it is sitting on my desk with the front panel off. Instead of the side 80mm fan, they should include a second 120 fan.
Summary: I bought this case for a few reasons. The looks, the price, and the ability for it to hold a lot of drives and full sized components. However, once it had everything together, it was pretty sad to see the temps. While idle, my GPU temps were in the mid 60s and my CPU temps were in the mid 50s.
