Summary: the power supply mounted int he front cuts down on the size of the system but does mean you cant really use any PSU that are slightly longer than the standard.
Pros: lots of room! I managed to fit 6 standard hard drives and an SSD in this small case by using an adapter in the optical bay. bought this case to build a cheap NAS using spare parts I had lying around and its been chugging along for 2 years, great airflow and fairly quiet.
Cons: the placement of the side can could be an issue for some if you're using a full size graphics card
Summary: I strongly suggest a modular power supply because there isn't much extra room for cables. Also it tends to be loud with mechanical hard drive and fitting multiple drives is tight so ssd's are highly recommended.
Pros: Great size if you need something compact with full atx. Can fit a large gpu in the case. includes rubber feet to put on the side so you can orient this case upright or sideways.
Cons: Can't fit any tall cpu coolers in this case. Had to revert to stock cpu cooler. Optical drive is literally right on top on the psu so this will reduce cooling of the psu. No options for cable routing, had to sacrifice the 2.5 bay for the main atx power connector wiring to go. Includes 120mm fan b...
Summary: You can fit 2 80mm fans in the back and 1 120mm on the left side. The fan placement in the top can not be used if you have a Video Card or other PCI card. If used as a HTPC case use a QUIET PSU and fans.
Pros: A full ATX MOBO fits. It is under 6" tall horizontal. Cheep.
Cons: The fan placement on the top panel SUCKS. It is directly over the PCI slots on ATX MOBOs. Slim fans will not even fit.
Summary: This is the smallest case I could for find that I was able to fit my old ATI 5870 and it did a great job at doing that I am really happy with this case, and you should have no problems fitting any of you parts in this case, just good luck finding an aftermarket cpu cooler to fit in this
Pros: The Cooler Master Elite 361 is a great little case with just enough room for and good little gaming system. I was able to fit a full size motherboard and a 500 watt PSU and A 12" ATI 5870 and still had room for two 3.5" HDD
Cons: I really can not think of any except I would really like to have the interior painted black also but saying that it was only 40$
Cons: The 120mm fan I bought for the side mount will not fit with my gtx 650 ti. Gonna try an 80mm and hopefully it is narrower but still, don't think I should have to worry about whether or not there is clearance when the mount is in front of the gpu.
Summary: I was going to build a small case like this from scratch. But its not necessary any more thanks to this little beauty. I don't use any internal optical drives so I added a longer more powerful power supply and chopped up the back so I could swap spots.
Pros: As thin as you can get while keeping pci slots available. Simple, small case, that supports full ATX board.
Cons: Its not perfect. Needs to be altered if you want serious components. Need to be very conscious of your heatsinks. There are low profile heatsinks out there that can handle SOME overclocking.
