Decent quality, not robust enough, PSU and fan are junk

Kyril F., Newegg
12 August 2014
  • Summary: In-Win makes very good quality cases, with well thought out design and layout. However the inexplicable skimpiness on the sheetmetal simply compromises the entire case. For those that never move their machines, this might be ok, but in any environment where PCs are moved around often or handled...
  • Pros: Good quality design, fabrication and paint job. Compact, yet roomy inside. The 100mm height allows for some nicer heatsinks to fit. Accepts standard TFX power supplies (like Seasonic SS-300 / 350 TGW / TGM).
  • Cons: Sheet metal is too thin: 0.6mm all around. The motherboard plate feels even thinner and for some unknown reason is sandwiched to the outer shell - why? Would it hurt to make it a single piece of substantial thickness? As it is, it feels like a paper membrane - push it with your finger and it move...

Nice Case, But Must Consider Compromises

James M., Newegg
3 March 2014
  • Summary: The drive cage location is the biggest issue. With an optical drive of length > 180 mm it will hit DRAM with heatsinks in my Asus H87 board (other boards with the DRAM slots closer to the back edge of the MB will require an even shorter optical drive if the heatsinks are tall.
  • Pros: * Attractive and well built. * No problems with the power switch that others have reported. * Good case for the price.
  • Cons: * Cable management is not good. * The optical disc drive overhangs the MB and DRAM, potentially hitting DRAM with heatsinks and the CPU fan. * The single case fan is not PWM. * The drive cage cannot be removed until the optical disc is removed. * Internal power supply takes up unnecessary space. ...

Decent

Lawrence K., Newegg
9 March 2013
  • Summary: With my chosen mobo, the DVD drive extends right over the front panel connectors, making it easy for the DVD drive to unplug them if you don't pay close attention when putting the drive in.
  • Pros: Price is decent, Size is great for just an HTPC, Exterior design is nice.
  • Cons: Although the outside is nice looking, the interior setup is hard to work with. With a standard size disk drive, it will extend pretty far over the mobo, not leaving a lot of room for the wires. Cable management is non-existent, making it challenging to avoid a stray wire from hitting the cpu fan.

Decent case, bad power supply.

Andrew T., Newegg
17 February 2012
  • Summary: The case itself is OK, but may be troublesome depending on motherboard layout, check the pictures of your setup before buying. If your RAM or power connector are located on the edge that's towards the front of the case, I wouldn't recommend the case.
  • Pros: Its nice and compact and the design looks really nice.
  • Cons: Interior layout. With an Asus board, the main power connector ends up beneath the DVD drive bay. The ram slots are also very close to being underneath which means I had to fit that bundle of wires between the DVD drive and the ram, and its actually leaning the ram slightly because of it. Front po...

Nice case, but not toolless

Mark S., Newegg
10 September 2011
  • Pros: The case is slick and surprisingly roomy for a mini ITX.
  • Cons: I'm not sure what "optional toolless design" means but there's nothing toolless about it, so bring your screwdriver with you. You'll need it to remove the side panel and the drive bay.

nice case with big flaw

Keith R., Newegg
10 September 2011
  • Summary: the cooling layout is a little odd, since there is no obvious "air flow" path through the case. The intel stock cooler pulls air down into the cpu, which is directly beneath a vent (good), however, the side fan is all the way on the front corner which is blocked by the drive cage and inevitably the...
  • Pros: - Good layout for ITX case - Supports 5.25" optical drive and 3.5" hard drive. Standard parts are cheaper. - Included power supply has enough plugs for basic HTPC
  • Cons: - BIG FLAW: The fans are really loud. Surprisingly so. If you buy this case, order better fans! The side fan is a standard 80x80x25mm fan. Enermax sells a nice quiet one. The power supply fan is another story. It is an 80x80x15mm (slim) fan, which are harder to find. Also, the connector inside th...

Loud Fans

J D., Newegg
18 November 2010
  • Summary: I'm trading this case in for a Silverstone SG06-B (another Mini-ITX case), which is reported to have "silent" fans. About three times the cost but hopefully worth it considering my desire for a quiet HTPC.
  • Pros: Has two 3.5" drive bays (one is only suitable for low profile drives, e.g. an SSD or laptop drive with a bracket) and a standard 5.25" drive bay, which means you won't need to purchase an expensive SlimLine optical drive.
  • Cons: Fans are very loud. If you plan on using it as an HTPC and leaving it on all the time, you *will* notice the fan noise when not watching video. I tried putting it to sleep when not in use (to silence the fans) but it kept waking up for reasons I have yet to fathom (I'm using Windows Media Center ...

It's OK but only OK

Anthony B., Newegg
19 October 2010
  • Summary: In the end, this was a cost effective solution considering it will be in a basement office. I couldn't see it as a media center box, it's just too big and ugly compared to the other options available on NewEgg. NewEgg seems to still have the best selection of MiniITX cases. THANKS NEWEGG
  • Pros: It's cheap and so far quiet
  • Cons: I've built at least 12 Mini ITX systems and this is the worse case I've used thus far. I needed a case big enough for the stock AMD heat sync but this is just HUGE compared to other mini's I've built and could easily be 1/3 smaller. You must follow the instructions, install HD first, then mobo, t...

Too Noisy

Michael H., Newegg
24 September 2010
  • Summary: Motherboard: GA-H55N-USB3 i3-530 (overclocked to 3.3GHz so far) HDD: 2.5" 500 Gig (using adapter to fit 3.5" short slot) 2x2 Gig Corsair CMX4GX3M2A1600C9 Lite-on DVD R/W 24x
  • Pros: Well built. 200W Power supply.
  • Cons: Too noisy for a HTPC. Will try to replace case fan with lower noise unit. Provision for front panel access to 3.5" slots. Would be nice for SD/MMC card reader.
