  • Summary: Nice, but just barely closes with the width of my graphics card (when you include the power plug). This could be my graphics card's fault, so you should measure before purchasing.

I have bought 6 of these.

  • Summary: I love the small size and price. Here are some comments. 1: Get the version without a power supply and purchase a good one separately. One failed on me. 2: Purchase 3.5 to 5 in. bay rails to get 6 3.5 in sata drives in this case . 3: With a good amount of work, I customized a couple cases to get 7 drives (26 Terabytes total.) 4: Plenty of space to add extra fans to get good ventilation. 5: Purchase 4 inch deep power supplies.

Very good and easy to work with even though it is small.

  • Summary: The case can fit a full size ATX motherboard, and a standard power supply. Double check the dimensions of the supply if its too big it will not fit. Besides that everything fit inside comfortably and had plenty of space for air flow so components do not over heat.

Great case with some caveats

Adam Baldwin, Amazon
20 December 2013
  • Summary: Okay, the price is awesome. This is also the absolute smallest case I could find that could house a full ATX board. I have most of my expansion slots filled, so I was looking for something with expansion room. I love that the power supply is mounted up front, using space that would otherwise be wasted by my non-existent 5.25" drives. I only have one optical drive, so I only need one bay.

  • Summary: Motherboard fit and the small size is what I wanted, but it just wasn't very easy to get my power supply in there.

great for basic tower or non pretentious HTPC case on its side

  • Summary: fits full size ATX board and power supplies with room for 5 3.5 hdd for some serious storage in a compact case. well ventilated with 3 80mm fan slots and 2 120mm fan slots. Although it fits full size gear, space is tight due to the small physical dimensions. I put in a sealed cpu water cooler but it wouldn't fit using the top fan slot so the radiator is going over the PCI x16 graphics slot on the side 120mm fan slot.

I am very fond of CoolerMaster cases but...

  • Summary: I was looking for a smallish mATX case that I could still use full height video cards, that was also well ventilated. While this is a nice looking, smallish case, it does have some drawbacks though not deal breakers. 1st, you really have to be careful about your fan selection with this little case. I used a pair of Vantec Stealth 80mm fans in the rear which was pretty quiet and flowed enough air for a modest overclocked 32nm based system with on fan cooled video card...

Pretty much all you could ask from a mini(micro)-ATX tower

Jason J Chapman, Amazon

  • Summary: I've been working on a project for some time, accumulating parts, in preparation for "splitting" my current (and only) desktop. Originally, the desktop was an HPE h8-1010 computer. It only had rooms for (2) HHDs so I went to a Cooler Master CM 690 II Advaned which has room for (7) 3.5" drives!
