Summary: The right components make this case easy to work with. I used the super compact modular Silverstone ST55-F-G PSU. It weighs a ton and is built like a tank. Use a SMALL FORM FACTOR GPU. Nvidia 750TI, 760 or a 770. The Noctua NH-U12S CPU cooler fits like a charm.
Pros: Great price, sturdy, looks great, super quiet fans, good airflow. With right components it is not that hard to work with.
Pros: Small, Compact and well designed. The case itself is very quite and the fans are quite also.
Cons: Mini-ITX case all share the same cons, hard to install everything, plan everything and I mean everything ahead of time. I've put everything and taken everything apart three times to get it to where and how I want everything
Summary: I've had this case for 2 years and 4 months now. Though I've occasionally looked into other cases to house my m-itx gaming build nothing else I've seen measures up to what I need. I took a long hard look at the Silverstone Raven but I could not get my CPU cooler in there.
Pros: *Small Footprint *Lots of Interior Space *Understated and Stylish Design *Good Airflow *Dust Filters *High Quality, Quiet Fans
Amazing Versatility - More than most reviewers out there realise.

Summary: I think the Node 304 is really one of the best cases out there ever. Still amazes me how all the reviewers out there missed its versatility with two simple modifications.
Pros: I am using the Node 304 right now for my ITX, and it's truly amazing how much horsepower I could cram inside it. With a tiny bit of modifications to the PSU bracket frame and one of the plastic plugs that help snap in the front fascia of the Node 304, you can easily fit a high-power ATX power sup...
Cons: Designers of the Node 304 at Fractal Design obviously didn't realise how much more versatility they could have gotten out of this case by giving the internal PSU bracket and the plastic clip a small modification. Right now, official specs indicate I "must" use a PSU under 160mm in order to use a ...
Summary: Best case I ever had. Fractal Design is my new favorite brand. Great design, great airflow, great solution. How to squeeze a huge ATX in this case with a 10.5'' GPU? Take the PSU bracket out. Use adhesive tape or velcro to secure your PSU.

Pros: Bought this to build a home server in. I wanted an itx case that can fit 4+ drives and fit in with my entertainment system/TV stand. This case is elegantly simple in appearance and fits nicely with my other electronics. Build quality is superb, and for an itx case its very easy to work in. No rea...
Cons: Doesnt have infinite space inside like Felix the cat's magic bag of tricks.
Pros: This is nice case for a small server build. If one wants to build a small server with a miniITX board, this is the best choice. Both the interior and exterior are well designed. Of course, cable management will always be a challenge with a case this small. There is only so much real estate. Fract...
