Almost perfect

Patrick J., Newegg

  • Pros: -Gorgeous appearance with black, brushed, aluminium

Amazing Case

Matthew B., Newegg
24 February 2011
  • Summary: Rear exhaust fan on HDD Cage. See other thoughts.
  • 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: *The front header cables are pretty short and really require both side panels be removed for optimal configuration.
  • 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.

Fun

Anonymous, Newegg

  • 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.

  • Pros: Very nice professional quality case. Well laid out for airflow for such a small case.
  • Cons: The side mounting screws can be difficult to remove. Use a tight fitting screw driver to avoid marring them.

Beautiful Case

  • Summary: Probably one of the best mATX cases on the market, expecialy considering that this case is almost all alunimium. As such it is super light out of the box. Here are some things to consider if you are building a computer from this case: You HAVE to use a L shaped SATA connector on your hard drive, due to the fan that is attached to the back plate of where your hdd goes will not be able to screw in if you use a standard SATA cable.
  • Pros: *Best looking mATX case I have ever laid my eyes on. *Superb construction. *Easy to build your system without getting cut and bruised like in other cases.
  • Cons: *The placement of the external drive bays on either side of the case is rather awkward. I use the computer I built with this case as a TV media device, so this gets placed on my multimedia rack along with my sat box, stereo deck and stuff but with the drive bays on the side, I cant put anything right next to this computer as I would not be able to access my BR drive on this comp. And leaving a gap between the components looks rather weird. I think a discreet front acc...
