Summary: Great looking case for a mini ITX build. I put in a ASURock H67MITX board, an SSD with a Core i5 2500K and a 1x8GB GEIL RAM. + Not too hard for a first timer. You need some patience and .. some more patience. + Front USB 3.0 ports! That was a surprise. Unfortunately, the ASURock H67MITX board does not have 3.0 headers, fortunately, the case comes with 3.0 to 2.0 converters. If you really need to use the 3.0 on the front, look for a better motherboard.
Summary: My pico psu died, so instead going with the car pc case and pico psu I was using, I decided to stepup to a case with a power supply that will support some upgrades. Will eventually upgrade the mobo and add in a new video card. So about this case, I can hear it from across the room, and that's sad. I might replace the fan. My previous nocturnal fan was dead quiet. The HDD LED was DOA from the factory.
Summary: This case is great but is really showing its age. I know this is a small form factor case and it does that job very well, but for over $100 it really should have more modern features. You will need your tool kit for this case including the hard drive, optical drive, and expansion card slots require screws. Cable management is also tricky.
Summary: Case is fine for me, but just be aware that it comes with a 2x10 power connector. My motherboard (Intel 525) required a 12x2, so I ended up having to buy an adapter. Case is basically a cheapo, but it looks good and is well ventilated. There was enough room inside for a single drive, but there was good clearance from the mobo to the PSU.

Summary: Overall, I am happy with this product. It does its job. The only setback for me is that the on-off button is a little small, hard to locate and hard to press. I have to push it hard, thus moving the case around if I don't hold it still with my other hand.
Hell of little box powerful enough for your gaming rig

Summary: 450w psu with 80 plus rating, black matt finish case look solid, tiny little box just perfect for your mobile gaming event like lan party. I was able to fit a MSI HD 6950 twin Frozr II 2GB, a 10.2 inch card with power slot on the top which is ideal for the SG05 10.6 inch video card slot opening. Some suggest a GTX 570 will fit if trammel a opening on the case while keep the front plastic cover intact. So I just opt for HD 6950 to save the trouble.
Larger size than expected, excellent design & fit-n-finish

Summary: . My first impression upon unpacking this case: IT IS BIG! I was expecting a smaller mini-cube size based on the photos here on Amazon, it's my fault that I didn't check the dimensions more carefully. This case measures 8.75" x 7" x 10.9" (W,H,D). The large 120mm fan up front might account for the larger size.
Nice case, but beware of slim optical drive requirements

Summary: This compact Silverstone case has many nice features. I like the second PCI card slot which allowed me to install both cards which came with my TV tuner (the second card plugs into the first, as my mini ITX motherboard has only one PCI express slot). However, there is one feature I could live without. The case only supports a slim optical (notebook) drive.
Summary: I have owned this case for 6 months. It is a good case for what it is designed for. I use it as an HTPC case. It is tall for this purpose and will not fit in many racks. I will be converting it to an 8TB server shortly. The case has tons of room; although, only 2 bays. I will modify it and get another two drives vertical without much fuss. Beware of the DVD slim slot; good if you don't mind the laptop drives. The LED light on the front is VERY bright.
