Very nice case.

John S., Newegg
23 January 2015
  • Summary: This was a budget system for me. I was trying to re-use some bits and pieces I already had. The one thing that didn't really work that well was my power supply..., a modest 400W Cooler Master w/ integral wiring.
  • Pros: A visually nice, aluminum case, with better "acoustics" than I've gotten from other aluminum cases I've tried. Overall quality is very good, and I would have given this 5 stars if but for my comments in the "Cons" section. With the holiday discounts that were in effect at the time, this was a gre...
  • Cons: To get 5 stars, it would have been nice if the screws on the sides weren't quite so petite and easy to lose. Similarly, there are a couple of places where self-capturing screws would have been nice. 1 more nit: the cosmetic panels that cover the holes where so-called "external" devices are to be ...

Excellent, professional-looking compact case!

Zachary H., Newegg
7 January 2015
  • Summary: This case is excellent for people who want something that looks refined rather than flashy. The craftsmanship of this case is top-notch and all the components seem durable and well-made, just be wary of the sharp internal edges when installing components and don't try to stuff too many...
  • Pros: The case is very sturdy and the all-metal body looks crisp and professional. I love the smaller, almost cube-shaped form factor because it doesn't look like a computer tower to most people. Internal fans and removeable bays are all easy to access once the side panels are removed and the removeabl...
  • Cons: The edges of the drive bays are sharp! I was worried I was going to cut some of the smaller fan and mobo jumper cables on some of these corners but fortunately I was able to thread them through without damaging anything except my hands. Airflow is not particularly great, though not bad either. I ...

Not as awesome as reviews say

Woo P., Newegg
4 January 2015
  • Summary: I would have expected a better case with the amount of price I paid. Now I have to pay for return shipping to Newegg due to case being not what I expected. I have tested alternatives before finding out that the case I received might be defective.
  • Pros: Look is nice
  • Cons: Power button stuck, missing screws for hard drive (and complicated with the rubber stuff), very tight inside, power wouldn't turn on at the end of setting it up which was very frustrating.

The best case!!!

Timothy W., Newegg
24 August 2014
  • Summary: lian-li, I would make everything removable charge the motherboard tray is removable winch is good but the hard drive cage is not removable, c-d cages is not removable, and the power supple is not removable. I like to see more of these cases, but everything removable
  • Pros: removable motherboard tray, compact, fits everything that I have that But still lots of air flow, sleet, the screws was a must for me. CPU -AMD Athlon X4 740 Trinity Quad-Core 3.2GHz MB -BIOSTAR A88M FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X memory-G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB GDDR3-1600 Storage -Seagate Barracuda 1TB C...
  • Cons: This was my first time working with a micro-case, so it took me a very long time to figure out how to put everything in. but once I got a hang of it and steep back, look back what a beautiful cases I love it that's probably the only con.

Don't expect top end everything.

Matthew M., Newegg
25 June 2014
  • Summary: I own two of the cases. Everyone (even the quasi tech geeks) is like THATS YOU COMPUTER? It looks gorgeous. Always draws questions. I run an I3 with a 750ti in the living room. I have a Silicon dust HD home run connected to windows 7 media center. Owns my dvr needs.
  • Pros: Great appearance and presences. People don't understand it"s a pc sitting next to my yamaha receiver.
  • Cons: Limited cooling and expansion.

Great for HTPC

Jacob.M.Beyer, Newegg
4 June 2014
  • Summary: A great case for the money and very solid with the build quality.
  • Pros: Great design, all black, good air flow, removable motherboard tray, love the Cube design.
  • Cons: Only one spot for the power-supply which isn't bad but if your power supply exhausts downward, that's straight into your cpu.

Awesome Case!

Evan S., Newegg
10 February 2014
  • Summary: Specs: ASUS mATX Z77 Intel 3770k Diamond Radeon 6950 OCZ RevoDrive 3 x2 240gb
  • Pros: Excellent build quality, decent cooling. Looks nice, LEDs aren't super bright. Can fit larger video cards! Temps under load are around 35 C.
  • Cons: It was a bit expensive when I bought it. ATX power supply fitment is a bit tight. Solved with a Silverstone PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817256063

Good Case that needs a little adjustment...

Scott S., Newegg
19 December 2013
  • Summary: • Overall the case is a good buy and anyone looking to make their PC take up a smaller space or perhaps a HTPC, this is a good choice. It’s not a “Small” case, but it’s also not “Big” either.
  • Pros: • All Metal / Aluminum • Lightweight • Small Footprint • Decent Price • Good amount of Drive Space considering size • Plenty of Room for ATX Power Supply (Recommend: Modular)
  • Cons: • Although the Drive Guides are there and all the needed Screws and Hardware does come with it, they made it a little bit of a pin for mounting any 5 ¼ Drives (Mainly CD / DVD Drives). The one side is completely accessible, although you may want to put the drives in prior to mounting a Power Supp...

Great for tight spaces

Jeffery F., Newegg
4 November 2013
  • Summary: ASRock Z68 PRO3-M LGA 1155 Micro ATX MB I5 2400S (65 Watts) Cooler Master GeminII S524 Corsair RM650 PSU Radeon 6770 CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 CORSAIR Vengeance (low profile)
  • Pros: The designers of this case read my mind. I needed something that would fit on a deep bookshelf w/i an enclosed cabinet. This requires turning the case sideways...which makes having the DVD tray and audio/USB headers on the side panel nice feature. Otherwise, I would have had to turn the whole cas...
  • Cons: As others have mentioned, you have to remove several small screws to remove the side panels. Not really a minus for me because I don't have to get into the case too often. Even w/ a modular PSU, managing the cables is tricky. The Corsair RM650 was a little longer than my previous PSU and that too...

An excellent case

Alexander D., Newegg
22 August 2013
  • Summary: I'm happy with it, but it's hard to really point to anything specific about it that you can't find in something that is half the price. The shape itself is the only real advantage, and that doesn't seem likely to be terribly important, except for the fact that this case will never tip over, whereas...
  • Pros: Big enough for most users without being too big. Wont tip over. Looks very good. Good quality, and fairly easy to work with. Removable motherboard tray. Almost 100% Aluminum construction, which helps to improve heat dispersion. Comes with fans. A fairly quiet case.
  • Cons: Will not fit a tower cpu cooler without modding. Ventilation is sub-optimal. Does not have points to install SSD's (but it's very easy to install a bracket or just make it work by leaving the SSD loose in the 5.25" drive bay, or using zip ties or something (not really a big deal). You can pay a l...
