Nice case with front airflow problem and cooler support.

Summary: This is a nice case and the layout allows for large video cards and full size power supplies (I was able to fit in a Cooler Master v1000). The two biggest issues I had with this case are the limited options for CPU coolers and the front intake is completely solid plastic. The front basically suffocates the front fan from getting enough airflow. That and with only being able to use low profile CPU coolers can lead to somewhat higher temps.
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.
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: It's not as quiet as I would have thought. I'm using it with BeQuiet PSU as a 24/7 server and I can hear it running from another room. I will be disconnecting the front chassis intake fan completely and will also replace the CPU fan with Noctua which is seriously quiet. Maybe then it will meet my expectations.
not bad for the price but kept my Fractal Node 304 and sold this to a mate

Summary: not a bad case for the price, you can see what CM were trying to do - but they had just not thought it through. The odd placement of the PSU was a great one. Unless you only have one HDD then this case is not for you if you like to keep your cables tidy - the way you put the drives in different bits pf the case just does not facilitate true cable management of any quality.
Summary: I was truly amazed when finding this mini its case from cooler master, after being disappointed by the sugo 07 I was initially a little sceptical. I ordered as I knew Amazon had a very reliable returns policy, but in the End this was not needed. For the price this case is unbeatable and I would say is my preferred choice over the sugo 07. It has space for a full size PSU and graphics card with only a marginaly larger footprint that the sugo.
Conclusion: Men inte för gaming. Finns inga vettiga kylmöjligheter i datorn om man har ett diskret grafikkort för spel (tänk AMD R9 280 eller Nvidia GTX 760). Rekommenderar därför detta chassi framförallt till folk som vill bygga en tyst surfdator/htpc (den har även en fullstor 5.25" slot för Bluray etc). Till gamers rekommenderar jag istället Fractal Design node 304!
Summary: Billigt och ändå inte dålig byggkvalitet. Tyvärr gammaldags design med nätaggregatet sittandes rakt över moderkortet. Luftflödet är inte särskilt effektivt då den stora fläkten i mitten mest vispar runt luften jämfört med ett riktigt utsug. Bygg ett riktigt lågenergibygge eller välj ett nätaggregat som är byggt för att klara extra mycket värme. Svårbyggt om man vill ha en skaplig ljudnivå.
