Summary: I also own the FT03B-Mini (mini atx version of this case) and so I decided to get this for another build I was doing for a slightly more powerful computer. The craftsmanship is great in this case, there was only one issue I had, and that was the L angle of the power cable meant to connect to the...
Pros: -small footprint -easy to remove panels -vertical cooling path -simple cooling with filter -looks lovely -unique
Cons: -very difficult to find correct DVD drive. most options are wildly expensive. When I ordered this case Newegg didn't even have a compatible drive. If you manage to find a drive.... you will still need an unusual cable to power it. -cable management is difficult, especially if you install the disc...
Summary: Overall I love this case and it functions well for my mini gaming computer! There will always be the obvious problems when building a computer with a small case, and I think this case serves its function very well.
Pros: -Looks beautiful on desk -High quality aluminum sides -High quality fan comes with it -I kind of like the I/O on top of case as opposed to back -CPU water cooling works great
Cons: -The sides come off too easy, wish they would secure better -BARELY fit my 660 ti, should have an extra inch of card clearance -My GPU gets upward of 70-80 celcius, but taking the front panel cools card at least 15 degrees -Virtually no cable management -No room for disc reader with all my parts in
Summary: I've had this case for a couple weeks now, and have been tweaking it quite a bit. The case has a lot of room for its size, and the easy open side panels have made it a pleasure to pop open time and again as I adjust fan and CPU cooler configuration.
Summary: This is my second itx build and it came together beautifully. The cable management and cooling was excellent with this case. The brackets holding the slim dvd/hdd/ssd have space that is perfect for containing extra cabling or threading cables through to the other side of the case.
Pros: -Easy to remove side panels (no screws!) -Smart airflow design -Useful installation guide -Works great with liquid cooling -Everything feels high quality
Cons: -Challenging to assemble. I had to go back and rearrange cables/pull out components to get things to fit -Not the smallest possible case -DOES NOT FIT CORSAIR H80i WATER COOLER but fits H55 without issue -Best to use Silverstone SFX PSU
Summary: I was looking for a case which I could sit on my desk with a fairly small footprint. Before I bought, I was concerned that this case would be a little too big, but it really is beautiful with a small footprint. This has been my first PC build in 10 years, and my first mATX case build.
Summary: I think this case looks really cool, the heat management is actually great... but there are some things that I don't like as much: Cable management is OK if you have a modular power supply, if you don't, then it's just bad. No access to the powersupply switch once the case is closed.
