Nice footprint..could be better

Phillip M., Newegg
8 May 2012
  • Summary: The power supply is not a standard ATX power supply..this is not a con.. The concept of this case is to be tiny but fix a micro atx board. However, the placement of the DVD where it over laps the CPU is a really bad design in my opinion.
  • Pros: Nice footprint. Ideal for low wattage cpu with wanting to use onboard video.
  • Cons: I would not recommend using this case for anyone who wants to add a video card down the road. A standard video card will fit, don't need a low profile, however there are no PCIe power connectors on the power supply. In addition there is no venting of any kind to the video card area. Unless you co...

Really nice little case with on exception, PSU way too loud!

Alan P., Newegg
29 July 2011
  • Summary: The partition for the CPU fan works very well, my CPU idle temps are a few degrees C cooler than my old case. Just remember, you should be using an Intel motherboard and CPU with a stock cooler for best compatibility with this case... I have a Celeron E3300.
  • Pros: Shallow depth, fits full height expansion cards, can accommodate quite a few peripherals considering it's small size. My ATI All In Wonder HD (3650) fits perfectly in it.
  • Cons: PSU fan is LOUD, I mean REALLY LOUD! Will probably have to buy a replacement that is quieter.

Loud PSU fan, bad airflow.

Matthew D., Newegg
11 July 2011
  • Summary: I like the case, but it needs some modding for better airflow to cool the hard drives and expansion cards. InWin has not impressed me with their quality.
  • Pros: Nice compact HTPC case. Can hold 2 hard drives (one in the floppy slot, and one in the HDD slot).
  • Cons: No space for an ATX PSU, only mATX PSUs for this thing. Cheaply made, came a bit bent (nothing I couldn't fix). The PSU fan is too loud for a HTPC... I might have to replace it. Airflow is non-existant. Have to mod in some fans to fix that.

Great case, PSU dead

Anonymous, Newegg
27 April 2010
  • Pros: The case is small, good construction, and can fit a lot inside. The way it comes apart lets you fairly easily install all the hardware.
  • Cons: The PSU is dead. With everything assembled correctly, I turn it on and it works, 5 minutes later it doesn't. I open up the case and without touching a thing every 10 seconds or so the PSU sends a pulse of electricity to the fans, but the computer won't turn on again. I checked all the cables and ...

Small, but all there

Phillip K., Newegg
25 July 2009
  • Summary: Built a variety of systems using this case - MBs from Intel, Asus and Foxconn
  • Pros: - A perfect case for a media center / small office / home server computer - Can fit a card reader, HDD and CDROM - Fits full-height expansion cards - Horizontal or vertical orientation - Rubber sticky feet can be applied depending - Quiet - Cover / Faceplate pops apart quite easily - only need to...
  • Cons: - This case gets HOT - Only PSU and CPU fans - But isn't usually an issue - The plastic separator that directs airflow from the top vent through the cpu only works with Intel heatsinks. If you have an AMD board, you'll need to remove it. - A 4-pin CPU power extension is needed on most motherboard...

Good HTPC case

Anonymous, Newegg
8 November 2008
  • Summary: If you want to fit the CD drive in this case you have to have a CPU cooler that is 70 mm high or less (without the plastic "heat-funnel" insert), and you will probably have to get a separate 4-pin power extension cable.
  • Pros: Great looking case. The full-size PCI slots make this case unique (as far as I can see) from other HTPC cases on Newegg.
  • Cons: Despite IN-WIN's claim that case fans aren't needed, I found them necessary. The inside of the case got unreasonably hot, especially my graphics card. Granted, I wasn't using the "heat-funneling" technology, but where the hell do you get a reasonable CPU cooler that will fit with this? In my case...

  • Excerpt: Альтернативы этому корпусу по габаритам я не нашёл! Кто то скажет что плохо искал (ну на ибее я конечно не смотрел, только среди того что можно сразу пойти и купить). Мне требовался компактный корпус в стиле HTPC что бы разместить в нём плату ASUS Xonar Essence ST, а другие модели корпусов или...
  • Pros: Габариты + вместительность. При таких скромных размерах в него влезают полноценные железки (конечно не все, но многие), что и было основным критерием выбора.
  • Cons: Как уже много раз отмечали(в отзывах на этот корпус в чёрном цвете) - шумный нестандартный БП.

  • Excerpt: Лучше поискать модель с более тихим блоком питания.
  • Pros: 1. Продуманная начинка корпуса, удобно устанавливать мать, протягивать кабели. 2. Стильный внешний вид
  • Cons: Шумный блок питания, воет так, словно в нем не 300, а больше ватт. Реально утомляет и режет слух. В итоге этот блок питания у меня сгорел.

  • Excerpt: При своих небольших размерах корпус позволяет установить не маленькую видео карту НО небольшой и нестандартный блок питания врят ли потянет мошности для всей системы. не говоря о том что видео плата не должна использовать доп. питания.
  • Pros: Размер не большой но и не мленький, цена ,
  • Cons: Нестандартный блок питания. непонятное устройство отвода воздуха которое ничего не даёт только место занимает.
