Still the best

artur h., Newegg
31 March 2015
  • Summary: Go lian-li!
  • Pros: Updated review. It's still a fantastic case after almost a year and a half. It's small, yet fits everything you need (as long as you do your research before buying parts). It's mobile, and the handle on it is really sturdy. I've taken it with me to many places many times.
  • Cons: one thing that recently came up with the case, are little plastic pieces which hold the pins on the back of each panel gave up, and one side does not close properly. HOWEVER, after reaching out to lian-li, they replied right away and sent me the replacement parts.

It looks better than pics

scott m., Newegg
21 February 2015
  • Summary: Install low height ram to allow airfow over motherboard. No room for air cooling requires liquid cpu cooling. There is no room for a push/pull 140mm rad, so the higher effeciency/cost of swiftech H140x is necessary. Asus Maximus VII Impact with 16gb kingston hyper x savage ddr3 2400 low profile.
  • Pros: Not a cheap build, but only mini itx case withGREAT handle. Well built, well thought out, and attractive. Main issues are the price, hard drive cage hogging interior space, no cutout on mobo tray for cpu cooler mounting, cpu and gpu overheat if overclocking, limited space for cable management. At...
  • Cons: No cutout on motherboard tray to add/remove cpu cooler with complete dissasembly. Cutout is only really necessary case mod. FIltered opening on case bottom begs for 120mm fan, but double slot gpu leaves only 20mm clearance, requiring a slim 120mm fan. The Prolimatech ultra sleek vortex 120 was on...

Fan Noise

  • Pros: Handle-compact-well built ideal for normal use whisper quiet.
  • Cons: Been reading all of tje comments wish I had the knowlege may of you do. Needed a compact tower for flying both Flight Sim & X-Plane. FSX is a resource hog. Had one of my Lan buddies suggest this and he helped me do the build.I5-Corsair 750-16g-GTX 660 No additional cooling. The OEM fan drives me ...

Break out the power tools and zip ties

Nolan M., Newegg
13 July 2014
  • Summary: Your experience may vary, but for my build I ran into numerous problems that resulted in my needing to use some extra tools and elbow grease. Starting at the bottom, and the most simplest: THIS CASE CANNOT REST ON THE FLOOR IF THERE IS CARPET. If you are using a large GPU, this case CANNOT do that.
  • Pros: There is nothing more attractive then a dark coloured, single sheet of brushed aluminum to wrap the body of this case, it's attactive, it's adorably tiny, very light weight, and of course, the handle makes this portable (for a desktop environment) For such a tiny thing I am impressed with how muc...
  • Cons: I'd recommend reading my "Other thoughts" section to determine if this case is right for you, but as for cons: The small size is also it's killer. There was some strange construction for the front fan making it neigh impossible to remove without deconstructing the whole case, as well as it lacks ...

Well made, not so well designed.

David S., Newegg
11 June 2014
  • Summary: It is close to being great in many ways, but too often misses the mark. I just don't know what market they were aiming for. If you're going for a very tiny portable build, the TU-100 seems a better choice - specifically as a portable APU work computer but not a high-power gaming lan-box.
  • Pros: Well built, precise and functional parts. Attractive in its simple exterior appearance. It has a handle.
  • Cons: Front fan mount system and position; lack of recessed back (or other protective measure for the ports on the back of the case); The apparent bottom fan filter has no actual place to mount a fan, and would be too close to the video card if you did. You would have to reverse the front case fan to c...

Everything You'll ever need in a case.

Michael C., Newegg
16 February 2014
  • Summary: I used this chassis to put together a high power, portable, gaming rig including water cooling. to pull this off it took some forethought and elbow grease. First i removed the HDD cage and installed a SilverStone 5.25in to slim ODD and 4 2.5" HDD/SSD giving me all the possible space i needed while...
  • Pros: This case has everything going for it; it's got style, excellent build quality, and portability. Those who have a more mature taste in cases will appreciate its craftsmanship and longevity over other plastic and flashy colors or lights. These are a few of my favorite things about this case -Style...
  • Cons: All the cons i have with this case are negligible, yet noteworthy. -The brushed aluminum sides, while durable, do scratch and smudge easily. The case will last you if you treat it right. -The HDD cage can be a double edged sword for some. If your a media junkie, the ability to house 4 3Tb HDD dri...

Interesting build

Paul H., Newegg
27 December 2013
  • Summary: I have been looking for this kind of case for a long time so my son can drag it back and forth from college instead of a large format case. He has had it up and running all week during Christmas break and loves it.
  • Pros: This is an excellent little case that fit the goal of building a college and return study and gaming system for my son. The workmanship is amazing, smooth black anodized surfaces with the fit of a sports car. The ability to remove the internal structures for equipment installs and customize the c...
  • Cons: Due to it's size and power supply placement in relation to CPU ...using a larger air cooler or water cooling for the CPU is very tight or not possible. I settled for factory cooler on AMD A10. Temp is holding below 60 under load. But they run a little hot anyway.

Excellent Case

Johnathan B., Newegg
26 December 2013
  • Summary: Tempted to use this as my standard case for future builds! Newegg delivery was great, received it well in advance of Christmas.
  • Pros: Beautiful case - outstanding workmanship. One of the best cases I have done a build for. Somewhat cramped inside (my first mini-ATX build), but well thought out. I bought a single width graphics card, but could have easily used a double wide which seems to be the standard these days. Easy mountin...
  • Cons: Hard drive cage has a built in back plane - neat idea, but not all hard drives will fit in for every slot. Still 2 out of 4 slots were useable like this. The others I use for my SSD, so it really is not an issue.

So close... Too big!

jon j., Newegg
4 November 2013
  • Summary: I take this on trips. There's so much empty space with this case, even when fully-built, I actually ball-up underwear and t-shirts and STORE THEM INSIDE THE CASE. Makes me nuts that no vendor will build a "smallest possible" mini-itx/full-sized P/S case. Why, WHY W H Y NOT ?!?
  • Pros: Relatively small, transportable, full-sized P/S. Pretty nice fit/finish.
  • Cons: FAR larger than necessary. Who needs a full-sized on-board optical drive?!? Roughly HALF the interior space of the box is wasted. Should be re-engineered.
