Good Case - Plan Accordingly

eric p., Newegg
22 April 2015
  • Summary: All of the people who bought this case and gave it poor reviews didn't do their homework! I bought this to upgrade my HTPC from the smaller case featuring an ITX setup. I wanted to use my other setup, but needed a case thats smaller, has space, room for a few hard drives, fits bigger video cards and...
  • Pros: Holds micro ATX motherboards Plenty of hard drive space Removable hard drive caddies for extra space Fits full size video cards Fits full size PUS (though would recommend modular) Motherboard installs in side panel (I like this feature)
  • Cons: No side fan vents where PSU is. Brushed aluminium scratches easily Slower build Price was a touch on the high side considering not a lot of extra goodies.

Great case

Anonymous, Newegg
15 September 2013
  • Summary: This is a smaller case so while you can run Crossfire or SLI and 7 HD + an SSD and Optical, it's highly unlikely you can do all of these things at ONCE although someone much more skilled than I could probably find a way to wire it all up, I'm just saying it's a PITA.
  • Pros: 1. Lian Li quality is unsurpassed. 2. Will fit 7 HD + Optical + an SSD stashed under PSU 3. 2 front fans (in) + 1 fan up top (out) + additional mount for a 120 exhaust 4. Takes any standard PSU. 5. Comes with 2 front USB 3.0 plug + SD card reader 6. Integrated fan controller with control on rear ...
  • Cons: Couple niggles that you should be aware of: 1. It does get crowded fast when you fill it up with drives. 2. every time you want to add/remove/change something you have to carefully unscrew about a half dozen screws to open the side panel. It's ok if you add a drive next year, it's a PITA if you a...

Nice case for FreeNAS

Anonymous, Newegg
10 September 2013
  • Summary: Most of the smaller systems available either are limited in terms of memory or cpu, or only hold four drives or less. I wanted a uATX case with enough room to hold six drives so I could run a six-drive ZFS RAIDZ2 array.
  • Pros: Room for 7 drives. Nice looking. Well built. Quiet fans. Blue lights.
  • Cons: Not hot-swappable. Side panel attached w/tiny screws. Blue lights.

LIAN LI PC-V354 one Cool NAS box

5 September 2013
  • Pros: I spent over an hour creating a review for this item that would top all others. I don't have a backup of it. I don't know if you even got it though since when I pushed the "SUBMIT" button I was back at the login screen but I was still logged in with no indication that you got it. Did you get my r...

Great Case for a small home server.

Adio G., Newegg
23 July 2013
  • Summary: Great case for people with a specific need. If you're looking for a case and the location is restricted by height, but you want a case that has room for a lot of storage, this case is perfect.
  • Pros: I've had this case for about 6 months now and LOVE it. Perfect case for my needs, a small home server. I needed a Micro ATX case that was short enough to fit under my desk, but had room for a lot of hard drives. This met my needs perfectly. I'm running WHS 2011 with about 12 terabytes of storage,...
  • Cons: Its definitely not the easiest case to build in but I knew this going in. This is NOT a case for someone who changes there configuration often. Opening the case requires removing 8 small screws. Inside the case once everything is in there isnt a lot of room to work. Cooling is adequate for most b...

Awsome Case

Ricardo V., Newegg
28 June 2013
  • Summary: Its wider then an average case so might not fit everywhere you want it.
  • Pros: This case is stupid light even after the build! Quality is very high and the fans are quiet. The fan controller is very nice too. Easily tweakable as I put a watercooling unit in it.
  • Cons: Its aluminum with steel screws...Beware as you can strip the screw hole with any unneeded force.

Very Nice Case with Quiet Fans

Mark G., Newegg
20 May 2013
  • Summary: I will list here my build combination so you will know for a fact that the following hardware combinations fit inside the case. I was guessing that mine would, and it worked out. You should know that once you drop your MOBO into place, it's difficult to get your big hands down inside there to hook...
  • Pros: I have to mirror what others have said about this case. It is larger than you might expect from looking at the picture (the website dimensions are accurate). In my mind I thought I would have more trouble getting everything inside, but in fact everything fit, but it was tighter than my previous b...
  • Cons: I won't dock any eggs for these items, because most of them are related to the size of the case limiting a better solution, but if you are building with this case, I think these are things you need to expect.... 1. Cable management is going to be sloppy. Next to impossible to be tidy because ther...

Quiet, unubtrusive

John H., Newegg
19 April 2013
  • Summary: I don't even hook up any lights.
  • Pros: It doesn't look like a computer. Can be turned into a formidable, yet unobtrusive file server.
  • Cons: I found assembly to be an exercise in trial and error. I feel like I spent most of the time in my last build dealing with case. This is my first small form factor build.

It's pretty

Robert B., Newegg
19 February 2013
  • Summary: If you dislike plastic and don't access your case very often, this a fine choice. It's probably bigger than you think by looking at the photo, a little wider than the Silverstone TJ08 and a bit shorter, though still not "big".
  • Pros: It's metal, lots of metal.
  • Cons: Not exceptionally functional or accessible. Small, annoying bits of plastic.

Nice Micro ATX Case

Thomas G., Newegg
8 December 2012
  • Summary: Make sure you have all your PCI cards installed before installing the power supply because it is seated in front of them in the case.
  • Pros: I wanted to shrink down from a standard ATX Mid Tower when I built the new family computer system. The material is nice and the case looks fantastic. The fans are not very loud, and the rear has a fan speed controller for whichever case fans you connect in-line with it. The best part in my opinio...
  • Cons: None
