Summary: Silverstone makes more solid units. This unit was well thought out for prep for liquid cooling which I have been arm twisted into doing. I don't like how the butt of the case has part of a PSU sticking out. Kind'a like a dude who doesn't know how to pull up his pants or a gal who has her H string hiked up too far on the hips. The plastic feet don't grip and will slide across a wooden desk. Be careful.
Summary: Small footprint and the cooling system is very quiet. This is perfect for a HTPC. The two front side USB 3.0 ports are super fast. The components fit a little tight so just take your time when assembling the internal components and everything will be fine. The LEDS are blue in color. There is one drive bay an I used my for a Blu-Ray player. The external drive fit into the bay perfectly.
One of the few truly small cases. Very happy with it.

Summary: This is one of the only "small" cases out there. Lots fit mini ITX boards, but when you look at the size, they are not small by any means. Mine has a full size video card, a DVD drive, a SSD drive and a traditional hard drive, PSU of course, and I am using the two fans that came with it. I am not overclocking. It is a little tight, but hey, the case is much smaller than others. It is certainly do-able. Small case does not mean small power.
Summary: The Cooler Master Elite 130 is a nice case, but it requires some critical thinking when building your system. The case is small, which is what I wanted but it does get tight. You need to place the components in strategically. What I did was: 1) Motherboard 2) CPU/Fan 3) RAM 4) Optical Drive 5) Hard Drive At this point I hooked up all my cabling except for power!
Summary: There is no reason in the world to have a massive case at home (I'm an IT pro for 18 years). If you want a great gaming case that you can move around easily, this is the one. You might have issues with long / double+ cards, but if that's your issue, there are other tiny cases that will help you deal with that.
