Summary: I wanted a very quiet and reasonably compact case for a new home office build. This case is a little bigger than I needed but it has lots of space and was easy to build. The cable management is very good. The front fan is very nearly silent. I installed a silent Seasonic power supply and an SSD drive in my build and the loudest thing I hear is the older secondary hard drive I have installed. I would rate 5 stars except for the high price tag.
Summary: The case is very nice. It looks brilliant from the outside but you need to be careful during construction. Unlike most cases the metal bars inside the case are not strong enough to supports it's full weight. Picking the case up by one of these bars will cause it to bend. It's not that hard to get back into place but if your doing a very tight build you might have some issues.
Summary: The case is a good micro-ATX. You have to practically take the whole case apart to get stuff in there and so it was an atypical computer build for me, but maybe that is common for micro-ATX type cases. Either way, I like it.
Summary: I bought this case a little over three months ago, and the stock fans had no difficulty keeping my 3570k and HD 7870 XT at impressively cool temperatures despite hot Spring temperatures. For whatever reason my case came without one of the screws at the bottom in place but the weight of the case kept it from moving and I most likely could easily have replaced it.
Summary: Very nice micro case but could use some improvements, primarily on the hard drive cage. Overall this case is easy to work with as most parts unscrew and can be removed such as the top and the motherboard tray. Wiring can be tricky so a modular power supply and shorter SATA cables can pay off here. Lots of room for your CPU heatsink of choice and a large fan blowing from the front that cools well even at very low RPM's.
Summary: I wanted to build a small budget gaming pc, and this case was a perfect match for the smaller mATX motherboards. Cable management is very well done and cooling is good. Note that I still find this case is larger than my liking and I wish I could find a smaller case but they are hard to find for gaming pcs. Overall great option.
Summary: Pro: A 3.5'' HDD and a 2.5'' SSD fits in that tiny slot in the bottom of the case The case is pretty light. Everything fits snugly, there's holes for routing cables. My ATX sized PSU fits (though I didn't use any external 5'' slots). The design is extremely minimalist which I like, there's USB 3.0 ports in the front. Everything seems to be high quality including the filter for the fan in the front and top both of which are ridiculously easy to remove and clean.
Summary: I've built many computers for myself and other family members over the years and have seen varying levels of case build quality. Silverstone consistently produces well made and generally well thought out designs. This case is no exception, but realize going in this is not a full size case so don't expect it to have the room of one. I'll consolidate a couple of points here that have been mentioned in a few other reviews, but they bear repeating: 1.
Summary: This is a very solid micro ATX case with exceptional look and materials. I'm a gamer myself but already in my 30's so I'm always on the look out for a subtle case with good airflow and functionality design. So far most of the case that fits my requirement are the flashy type that looks like an alien from space, until I found this. Look (5/5) The black brushed aluminium front just cannot get any better. It looks and feels sophisticated, and makes a statement of style.
Summary: This is a good quality case that is easy to work with. Perfect size for my micro-atx build. The only issue I had was with the drive cage interfering with the front panel USB 3.0 cable connecting with my Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z motherboard.
