Perfect fit

Dale M., Newegg
4 March 2016
  • Summary: Making one of the 3.5" bays a 2.5" and a slight increase of overall height of .25" would make this case near perfect. The increased height would allow for more airflow between CPU cooler and PSU (it's pretty tight in there), but in all honesty; I'm running a 5350 with a stock cooler with no...
  • Pros: Fits in tight spaces Good ventilation Decent cable management (especially for a mini-itx) Included PSU worked and more than adequate
  • Cons: None really

Perfect for what it's designed for.

Anonymous, Newegg
15 January 2016
  • Summary: Rating this less than 4-5 eggs because you expect a high end air cooled system to perform well in this case is just dumb. Look at the clearances - it's clear this case was designed for low TDP builds, which it does an outstanding job for.
  • Pros: This case is perfect for embedded and other FAN LESS builds. If you're looking for the smallest case possible that supports 2 3.5" HDDs and a half size ROM, look no further. Bonus 250w PSU included, saving 30-50 extra dollars you would have had to spend if going with other similar cases. Ultra qu...
  • Cons: None.

Cramped

Douglas E., Newegg
30 December 2015
  • Summary: I know size is the main reason to buy cases such as this, to minimize desktop space taken up by the computer but there are better designed cases out there that accomplish the same objective without sacrificing a good build.
  • Pros: Neat small desktop size.
  • Cons: Power button is not lit - power and hard drive activity lights are inside small groves to the bottom right and barely visible. Full size hard drive installs I the bottom bay and negates the use of the front opening behind the bottom panel for let's say a card reader installation. A full size hard...

small time pc builder

Anonymous, Newegg
22 November 2015
  • Summary: all and all good case
  • Pros: Love the case small build makes it it nice to put it almost anywhere when its all done.
  • Cons: Ok now this May sound petty but the power supply not well braced so it sags. cable management is not easy at all I would have liked to see shorter cable's for the power supply. as well the hdd 2.5 or 3.5 needs to have more options for mounting like at the bottom some how. the one spot was so tigh...

A VERY nice compact case for a general use perso.

Robert O., Newegg
27 August 2015
  • Summary: A VERY decent case to build a moderate PC in. Keep in mind what you are buying and what your intended purpose is.
  • Pros: This a VERY nice little case. It supports a full size mini-ITX board (and what I mean by that is it has adequate space if you choose to use a board with a fairly significant sized daughter board) a 5.25, 2x3.5 drive bays, a side one and a front horizontal one under the 5.25 drive, clearance for s...
  • Cons: While I have a lot of good to say about the case, there are a few issues I have. Not all of these are complaints but more or less observances that I think might be helpful to other people looking to build in this case. 1 - While you can add some fans to the side of the case (I dont think this was...

Sho kewt!

Yui D., Newegg
8 August 2015
  • Pros: Just a cute little case with some smart plastic hardware for maximizing what little space there is. Just right for a wee server.
  • Cons: Itty bitty, recessed and dim LEDs at first made me think I made a mistake building the computer. Really hidden little things. This may not be a con if you want this case in your bedroom.

Adorable and Awesome

SARAH B., Newegg
16 July 2015
  • Summary: As for the drive issue I ended up putting the drive below the normal mounting cage and mounting it to the bottom of the case. There is a ton of dead space there so I used it for a full size drive. Like many I went with an AMD 5350. Its definitely a tight fit but it works and doesnt overheat.
  • Pros: Super small footprint. Came with PSU. Super cheap. Looks more expensive than it was.
  • Cons: Front LEDs are barely visible but for some of you this is not a con. The 3.5" HDD cage is in a poor spot. The drive fit but my sata cables were pushing against my RAM. I would recommend getting a 2.5" drive or using low profile RAM (this is all assuming of course that the board you intend to use ...

Rosewill RS-MI-01 BK - Mini ITX Tower / Desktop Computer Case - 250W Power Supply with Two (2) SATA Connectors and One (1) 20 + 4-Pin Connector

Landon K., Newegg
5 June 2015
  • Summary: The case could of came with mounting brackets for fans on the opposite side from the HD sideways mount
  • Pros: Great Case Small and compact perfect for small spaces. At only a little over 5" tall it fit nicely under my monitor. Has space for the basics that you'd need. I Recommend using an A serious motherboard and cpu combo because you don't have to put a video card in the case and it will cut down on th...
  • Cons: None really for it's size.

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
