Very Quiet, Ikea Style

Thomas B., Newegg
14 April 2013
  • Pros: Very Quiet -- Included fans are good quality, sound insulation works well, above-average build quality.
  • Cons: Less than ideal space behind the motherboard tray for cable management. I have a non-modular power supply, I had trouble sliding the panel back on. When I slide it back on some of the wires were pushed back into view and there was a small bulge in the panel. The grommets for routing cables kept falling off and they were very annoying to get back on. Although to be honest it doesn't have a side window so no one is really going to look inside at the cables.

SImply Outstanding

Brett S., Newegg
28 March 2013
  • Pros: This case is without a doubt the nicest case I have dreamed of owning. I bought it because I wanted a nice, quiet case to use as a media server and wanted side mounted HDD racks.
  • Cons: Are removable Motherboard trays no longer the norm for high end cases? I didn't have any issues, but I was just curious.

Beast!

Robert E., Newegg
23 December 2012
  • Pros: This case is built like a brick Sh**house. The workmanship is superb; attention to detail is excellent. It's quiet, extremely quiet. Cable management is good.
  • Cons: This case is built like a brick Sh**house. If you're used to aluminum ITX or mATX cases, then you're in for a shock because this isn't like those. It has a massive desk presence and weighs a metric ton. While the cable management is good, it could be better by increasing the space between the MB mounting plate and the back panel by 5mm or so.

Wow! I am amazed at this!

Chris L., Newegg
23 August 2012
  • Summary: Major con though: Watch getting mATX boards that you want to do dual video cards with. 2 things. One, many typically come with the second PCIex16 slot near the bottom of the board. You WILL have a problem if you have a double slot space card. Due to the location of the power supply on the bottom, it will prevent you from fitting that second card properly. (unless you water-cool it or something).
  • Pros: You know, I have been looking for "that" case for years. This one is right there!
  • Cons: As with all great things, it requires planning and thinking ahead and most of all, taking your time. I can typically build a simple system from parts in boxes to ready to boot the first time in less than 20-30 minutes. This box took me 2 or 3 hours, cause I was taking my time. And I build computers for a living, have done so for over 20 years.

Beautiful Case

Andrew S., Newegg
10 February 2012
  • Summary: -space behind motherboard is tight for hiding cables, but there are enough places for cable ties that everything fit neatly.
  • Pros: -the simple beauty of this case can't be bear.
  • Cons: none of these are bad enough for me to drop an egg, but are worth noting:

Finally

Anonymous, Newegg
26 July 2011
  • Pros: Excellent Micro case! Has all the features of a full tower case packed into a small design. Hard drive cages are removable and can be rotated. Plenty of (large) cooling fans. Very quiet operation. Awesome cable management, almost NEVER seen in a case this size. High-quality sound isolation foam. USB 3 on front. Fan controller included. Comes with 3 fans, can install up to 6. Fit's the largest graphics cards (when HDD cage is removed). Price seems high for a MicroATX c...
  • Cons: Wish they would have included a 4th fan up front (only has 1 intake installed from factory). Don't really see the point of the white-on-black design inside.
