Almost perfect

Patrick J., Newegg
6 October 2011
  • Summary: I have been using this case for several years now and absolutely love it. The design is so nice that I enjoy having it in my living room to show off. My only real wish for a redesign of this case would be to design the side panels more like a standard case so they can easily be held on with 2 thumbscrews and pivot off for removal.
  • Pros: -Gorgeous appearance with black, brushed, aluminium
  • Cons: -Side panels are held on by 6 soft-aluminum screws that can strip easily

Amazing Case

Matthew B., Newegg
24 February 2011
  • Summary: For those out there that don't like bending sata cables going to your HDD, either buy some right angle cables or the better fix is to buy a slim 80mm fan. The reason for this is the HDD cage doesn't slide out, only the silver panel with the fan comes off. It has a guard so blades don't rub but has to be put back on with some force and that could cause problems. Just a good tip to know about.
  • Pros: Great case for a semi small form factor case. Best quality case I have ever purchased. I was a little hesitant due to the cost but it was well worth it. Included fans are quite, the included hardware works as intended to silence the system. Standard parts can be used. No special form factor for the PSU. Airflow is excellent but is dependent on the PSU to exhaust the majority of the hot air.
  • Cons: Only minor inconveniences. If you are going to use a newer standard size graphics card, be mindful of where the 6-pin power connector is. I'm using a Galaxy 50SGH8HX3OMJ GeForce GTS 450 video card. The power connector is on top of the card, this caused a minor issue because I had to bend the cable flat then plug it into the card as I was sliding the MB tray into the case (love that feature). There was almost a clearance issue with the power cable and the HDD tray that...

Gorgeous Case

Gareth S., Newegg
16 February 2011
  • Summary: Works great for a mid- to high- range HTPC/workstation (I have BD-R, SSD, two HDDs in RAID1). It can fit larger video cards, so I expect to add a 6850 at some point.
  • Pros: This case is beautiful, particularly for the cost. It is light-weight but does not feel or look cheap at all. The side-loading optical drive enclosures provide flexibility in the setup, and prevents the front from having either a protruding drive or annoying door. The removable MOBO tray makes life way easier, particularly since by its nature it is a small-ish enclosure. That being said, with the side panels removed, internal configuration was a breeze. It also comes ...
  • Cons: *There is little by way of cable management, but the zip-ties go a long way towards mitigating that.

beautiful case

Mattaniah S., Newegg

  • Summary: takes a regular size power supply. be prepared for a messy cable situation inside. the built in usb cable is short so you can't connect it with the MB pulled out.
  • Pros: my first build. A beautiful case. true the screws are small but with the proper tools its simple.
  • Cons: fans are a little loud if next to you on the desk.

  • Pros: Lots of room inside, aluminum, dual fans up front, space for a full size PSU, screwless HD bays, cable channel up front for great cable management.
  • Cons: HD bay fan is a bit thick, get angled SATA cables!

Great Case....But

George D., Newegg
7 July 2010
  • Summary: After putting my system together heat was my biggest concern. CPU was 47c and HDD was 46c. I did not feel any air coming out of the case. I changed the two 120mm fans with Cooler Master fans (19db 90cfm) and the rear fan with an Antec 92mm. Now everything is 10degrees cooler and much happier. I also messed with the wires to allow more air flow. Modular PSU is the best thing you can get for this case.
  • Pros: Small
  • Cons: Fans are worthless (Does not move much air)

Fun

Anonymous, Newegg
2 July 2010
  • Summary: This was a fun HTPC build and I would highly recommend the case to anyone. Very classy case. I just sold the HTPC built with this case 2 weeks ago. A+ purchase.
  • Pros: Size, looks, fans, anti-vibration HDD cage, and fun to work with. This was purchased as a personal item in order to build an HTPC. Fit all my components just right. Even an ATX PSU fits nicely, although I would recommend modular if you want to spend some more money.
  • Cons: Smudges stick to the outside case easily. The screws which hold on the walls of the case are very small and strip easy. They come from the factory VERY tight, so please push hard and turn slow when you work with them. The motherboard tray has potential, but you have to unplug every wire before sliding it out on the tray. Kind of pointless when you just want to access something quickly. The only other way is to take off a side panel, which is not convenient.

  • Summary: - Use a modular power supply with this case
  • Pros: - Clean look, no clear windows, fancy lighting or other nonsense
  • Cons: - front firewire, USB, audio is fixed on the right side of the case - think about where this case will live if front ports need to be accessible
