Happy owner

B. Harding, Amazon
28 January 2015
  • Summary: Sleek and stylish. A bit bigger than I expected, and definitely bigger and heavier than much of the competition. But, it looks so amazing in person that it might be worth it to you.

Great with some small quirks

Jacob H, Amazon
18 January 2015
  • 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...

Shes a looker

nicholas b., Newegg
19 December 2014
  • 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...

Great Case with some Compromises

Kyle S., Newegg
30 November 2014
  • 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

Side panels came warped

Nathaniel G., Newegg
23 January 2014
  • Summary: Just ordered a Caselabs s3 today as a replacement.
  • Pros: Great Quality, really. Nice and thick side panels dampen noise. small formfactor.
  • Cons: My side panels came in warped, and do not sit flush on the back side..... really frustrating considering the price.

Sturdy, roomy, but premium price.

Aaron Lahman, Amazon
28 December 2013
  • 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.

Excellent Design

Daniel Z., Newegg
19 December 2013
  • 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

Great Case

Rob "rcina4", Amazon
18 December 2013
  • 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.

In retrospect, I would have bought another one.

Cristobal C. "cristobal", Amazon
30 November 2013
  • 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.
