Nice little black box

Stephen E., Newegg
7 May 2015
  • Summary: I bought this for a DIY NAS enclosure and it looks good. The external appearance is nothing special, but unobtrusive. The power supply is small, adequate, and above all, quiet (even with its fan).
  • Pros: ITX Form Factor Includes a standard, modern power supply Space for 2 3.5" HDs + a 5.25 optical drive
  • Cons: One HD bay is horizontal under the optical bay; the other is vertical in the rear near the power supply Seems to be a little bigger than it absolutely needs to be: there appears to be space for another HD in the front, but no mounting hardware

bad layout

Jeremy T., Newegg
30 April 2015
  • Summary: haven't yet had a real problem with it, but am expecting it to overheat with how there is only 1/4" clearance between cpu fan and poser supply with half of it underneath
  • Pros: sturdy
  • Cons: power supply blocks cpu fan no case fan slot card slot too tight of a fit

Great Value Mini ITX Case

Alex S., Newegg
29 March 2015
  • Summary: As mentioned, this case is a bit larger than I expected. It has room enough for a 5.25" drive (CD/DVD/etc.) as well as a 3.5" floppy/MM reader, etc. The case is light and the P/S is quiet. A little caveat emptor here: the case came with a 236W P/S, NOT a 250W as advertised.
  • Pros: Quite P/S, spacious interior, all cable harnesses included (front panel audio, USB, etc.) even comes with an old-fashioned "speaker"!
  • Cons: Only 234W P/S, not 250W as advertised. Bigger than I expected for mini-ITX

Got this in a combo, would never buy again

Andrew L., Newegg
18 March 2015
  • Summary: Newegg! if you offer a combo please build it out and see how it goes together, if it will go together! I cannot stress enough if you buy this case, you must think about the thermals, don't put anything hot in it, think of where that psu comes down, think of where you can wedge fans in and how you...
  • Pros: It's small, compact, and fits on the tv stand well.
  • Cons: Got this with a combo that I don't think anyone at newegg attempted to build! The combo included gskill ripjaws X series ram, a MSI AM1I motherboard, a WD 1TB blue, a athlon 5350, and this case. The LED's are understated and easy to miss, perhaps a little too easy to miss. The ram's high heatsink...

A little Cramped for space

Michael M., Newegg
4 March 2015
  • Summary: This is a great looking case and seems to run pretty cool considering its size, The only thing i dont like is that the way the HDD Tray was designed it sits right next to the CPU Cooler be warned if you have a rather large CPU Cooler this is not the case for you.
  • Pros: Fair price Attractive yet simple look Comes with PSU Front panel USB and HD Audio
  • Cons: Space issue between the HDD and the CPU Cooler

Basic working case

Anonymous, Newegg
6 February 2015
  • Summary: For the price tag and the size, this is good enough for me to build my own server.
  • Pros: -- Cheap build, compact design, good for building a small NAS server -- Working as I expect -- Enough space to put in two hard drives, a DVD drive, board and memory -- The power supply is a plus
  • Cons: Just so so quality, one of the front panel broken in first day, when I installed the system. But it's OK, no problem to affect me to install and use it without it.

Great little toaster box

Matthew M., Newegg
21 January 2015
  • Summary: This is a small form factor box... This is probably not the best box to build with your kids on xmas day as there was barely enough room to maneuver the AMD/MSI board into it. I thought I ruined the CPU fan because it bound was hung up and did not seem to fit into the hole for mounting the board...
  • Pros: Small form factor, perfect for the kitchen desk/bar area. The machine is virtually noiseless and produces very little heat.
  • Cons: None really, see Other Thoughts..

RS-MI-01 mini itx case

Neal K., Newegg
6 January 2015
  • Summary: The PS sits extremely close to the CPU. The Athlon 5350 fit with the stock CPU cooler but with very little clearance. Enough for adequate cooling for a low power CPU. If the cooler had been much taller it would not have fit and would have had to order a slim fan for it.
  • Pros: Good little case for what it is. PS included is a bonus. Small enough to fit in a bookshelf or in the entertainment center.
  • Cons: Not necessarily a con, but something others have mentioned is the HDD tray won't accept an HDD if the MB ram slots are under it. I had to mount it to the side rail which I'm guessing was intended for an HDD but the hole spacing was just enough off that only one screw could be used. Adequate as it...

Nice Case

Mohammed A., Newegg
30 December 2014
  • Summary: To fit a regular HDD, I used 2 zip ties and tied the HDD under the HDD cage.
  • Pros: Small and compact design, with included 200W power supply.
  • Cons: Bad HDD placement for most boards. Best to get a board with side ram slots.

That'll do Case, That'll do

Regan F., Newegg
27 December 2014
  • Summary: Reading the other reviews of this case, it seems the power supply enjoys a good failure, which makes me worry about using it. I did buy a back-up SFX power supply, but there are no reputable companies making SFX power supplies, so all you have for selection is a sea of garbage, and at that point, it...
  • Pros: Very compact case. Comes with the bare essentials, includes a power supply, and is pretty cheap for all of that. You can put a very basic computer in it, which is what you're probably going to do anyway if you're buying this.
  • Cons: Has the power supply above the motherboard. I wish this were flipped vertically, and the motherboard was above the power supply. Because of this, if you're going to use an Intel CPU, the stock fan won't fit, so this case will come with the hidden cost of buying a slim fan. A lot of cases use this...
