Silent

Kevin H., Newegg
28 June 2015
  • Summary: The case is very good, I used it for an existing HTPC that was in a Silverstone case (GD05B) which is much bigger, has 3 120mm fans, and yet my temps were exceedingly high. The Silverstone looks cool on the inside with the special HDD holder, but that was a pain to install the drives in, and the...
  • Pros: Quiet, Compact, Looks nice in media center, Very cool with stock heatsink/fan, Relatively easy to open and close.
  • Cons: Other than the very bright LED, none.

Decent compact

Kianoush S., Newegg
1 June 2015
  • Summary: I bought this case for the sake of building a portable machine in as small a package as possible. It's decent, small enough to fit into airplane carry on. I recommend finding some way to add a frontal intake fan in place of the optical drive bay, if you're going to put in more powerful components...
  • Pros: Surprisingly, for having no case fans, it's setup can run decently cool. Dust filter on the intake is a definite pro if you want to be mobile. I recommend adding a dryer sheet, or replacing the mesh with a finer one then the stock filter. Size wise, this unit is actually small enough that with a ...
  • Cons: I wish it were just one PCI slot taller, so I could get a PCI blower inside without obstructing the intake on the PSU. Or adding a PCI wireless card. Stock PSU is kinda worthless, unless you don't want a GPU.

Great case, a little cramped

Robert N., Newegg
6 April 2014
  • Summary: There is a rubber slot to run the cables for the optical drive through the black piece that fits over the CPU fan. There are two power connectors for drives. One is designed for the optical drive and the other for the HDD. Unfortunately, both cables have one SATA and one molex power attachment.
  • Pros: MicroATX case for my HTPC that fits in my media center Has space for 2 HDDs and a full-size optical drive Near silent with stock Intel cooler Comes with a power supply
  • Cons: Wiring is very tight. The power cable for the CPU is simply too short for my GIGABYTE GA-H81M-HD3 motherboard and goes across the expansion card slots. Thankfully, I'm not using them. The power LED is way too bright. I had to put a piece of electrical tape over the LED it was so bad. Getting the ...

Tiny yet fits full-height PCIe video cards

Jeremy P., Newegg
11 March 2014
  • Summary: I use this case "upside down", with the power supply at the top drawing cool air in. I have a flat rabbit cage fan (originally intended to be a PCI slot cooler) exhausting warm air from the top of the case. Video card is a "silent" model, huge heatsink does actually fit into the case.
  • Pros: Exterior dimensions are very compact (less than 6" wide) Power supply driven within 80% of 300 W without issues
  • Cons: Small case means there's almost no room to work when swapping parts No auxiliary PCIe power connector (efficient power video cards only, i.e. Radeon 7750 @ 45 Watts)

Industrial art

Thomas T., Newegg
25 November 2013
  • Summary: After I learn to administrate a Smoothwall firewall I built from spare parts, I'm buying another of these cases for an Ubuntu Server/WordPress/Moodle webserver that fits my standup desk. A $7.00 Arctic Cooling Alpine GT 64 has kept my AMD A8-5500 happy for 6 months or so now.
  • Pros: After hundredss of times upgrading the insides of this case, it still comes apart without falling apart and goes back together right every time At first, I thought it was flimsy. It isn't. Top-grade engineering. Perfect size for me. Runs cool and silent with just the CPU fan and the PSU fan, sinc...
  • Cons: It ate CPU coolers until I started sealing the air holes on the partition plate with duct tape. I learned from burning out a CPU cooler's fan that extra care is needed to make sure the cables to the DVD burner stay out of the fan. Duh. The stick-on feet really suck, but I got some aftermarket fee...

InWin SFF Tiny Tower

Missi S., Newegg
24 October 2013
  • Summary: Used in 20+ Workstation configurations for the ease of assembly and small form factor associated with the device. These units do not seem to collect as much dust as the dell units that they replaced. Employees love that they have a much greater amount of leg room.
  • Pros: -Perfect Form Factor -Fits full size Graphics -300W Built-in PSU provides plenty of power for a variety of configurations -Cooling partition works perfectly for stock Intel coolers -fits 2 x3.5 HDD's, and a 5.25 CD/DVD/BD Drive -Lights on the front of the case and case itself are attractive. -Mad...
  • Cons: -Ventilation is not in excess -working with just one unit might be confusing due to lack of instructions -Top of the case can be difficult to get on

Great case for a trunk mounted CarPC

Daniel T., Newegg
6 April 2013
  • Summary: My situation is a little extreme in that I needed something small but also something with good air circulation. My trunk mounted PC is for a car in the Atlanta, GA area, so it gets to some pretty extreme temps in the trunk.
  • Pros: This is a very small footprint case, just what I need for a trunk mounted CarPC. My 2011 Sonata didn't have room under the front seats for my old Travla c289 case, so I had to go to the trunk. This case fits nicely in the right back corner behind the tire. It allows for an external 5.25" and 3.5"...
  • Cons: Air circulation isn't the best, so you really need to plan ahead and use low power and low heat output components. Also, beware that a long drive in the 5.25" external bay will sit over part of the CPU, so you will need to stick with the stock heatsink / fan or go with a low profile model with no...

stands up well

Doug F., Newegg
7 March 2013
  • Pros: solid, well made case with a quiet fan. Smallest one I could find that can take two hard disk drives; I put a RAID controller in it and it worked like a charm. Have had it for 2 years with no problems.
  • Cons: because it is a small case, everything is a bit tight.

Great mATX Small Form Case

William D., Newegg
4 March 2013
  • Summary: I got this case for my wife's Windows 8 Pro system. She has a small desk in the kitchen so space is at a premium. This case was just what was needed. Much smaller than her old mATX case. I love the design, unique and functional. I'm building three more systems (a couple test units and an HTPC).
  • Pros: Awesome little case for basic PC configurations. Took me a bit to figure it all out, but after that everything came together nicely. I like this case so much I just bought 3 more for various projects.
  • Cons: Instructions aren't the greatest, but didn't take long to figure out how it all goes together. Not necessarily a con, but not sure how this case would do with an add-on video card.

pretty good case

Jim S., Newegg
13 October 2012
  • Summary: I have two of these, one housing an atom-based system, and another with an amd A10. For the atom, it works great, you can't even tell the computer is on. For the A10, I probably should have opted for a bigger case for the sake of airflow, but everything did fit.
  • Pros: This seems like a pretty well designed case. It's fairly inexpensive, it isn't ugly, and it has a good-enough-for-most-purposes power supply with a very quiet fan. I don't have any complains about build quality.
  • Cons: The optical drive bay is placed such that, depending on motherboard and CPU, it may partially block the CPU fan. The power supply does not have the 8-pin atx 12v power connector needed by some newer motherboards. (I've been using a molex-to-8-pin adapter and haven't had any trouble.) The cover ca...
