  • Pros: Compact, lightweight, quiet. It's like a mini tower, but I can put 2 full size nVidia Gforce 780ti's inside it and still have room for about 5 HD's, cdrom and fan controller. Google it an read some reviews. I couldn't ask for much for in a compact designed case. It's design stays very cool, air pushes in through the front, sucked out the back an top by other fans. ****Make sure you order an extra Silverstone Air Penetrator 120mm fan case. http://www.newegg.com/Product...
  • Cons: I'm unable to control fan speed with my motherboard setup, but that can easily be remedied with a fan speed controller and very easily set it up in the lower front if you wanted to. I like how it stays super quiet until I start maxing out my gforce 780ti.

Well Designed

R Dewayne Morris, Amazon

  • Summary: I used this case for my mom's uATX build and was impressed with the layout of the interior and the quality of its construction. Notably, almost everything comes off with a set of screws, making it easy to remove the drive cage to install memory or remove the top to route the cables from the back of the power supply. The cable space between the power supply and the optical drives is tight, as you might expect in a case of this size.

  • Summary: One of the best cases I owned. If you manage how many drives you have, you can take out the front drive cage and there will be lot of air flow in the case.
  • Pros: Small, Quiet and lot of air flow
  • Cons: A bit hard to make cables nicely tucked away

Keep Cool & Stay Positive

Jona A., Newegg

  • Summary: My system i5-2500k OC'd turbo @ 4.2Ghz Prolimotech Megahalems with two high end 120mm 2000rpm PWM fans in a push/pull configuration Asus Gen Z IV motherboard Evga GTX 780 ACX (doesn't vent out the back) Max Temps CPU High Temps 50 cel Northbridge 55 cel GPU 70 cel That's full on gaming for hours and hours I'd put this up against any of those prefabbed, closed loop water system any day.
  • Pros: Positive airflow that is. Imagine two straws. One thick and one thin. If you blow an equal amount of air through each one, the thinner, more restricted one will have higher pressure inside of it. That is the exact reason why this case is better than almost any other out there. One fan pushing air resulting in positive air flow. And 100% of that air, is filtered so your components stay clean. Also, that one fan is huge, 180mm. Which means it doesn't get loud from blade...
  • Cons: Building a system in this case is going to take some extra time. There are many screws, half of which you don't need. Removable cables on your PSU is pretty much a must. Short replacements are also are nice. The cable from a CD ROM will smash against the PSU cables. The HDD Rack will only block your air flow so don't use it. Place packing tape across the bottom of the case to seal the air flow. Don't ad any exhaust fan as it will reduce the positive pressure and suck ...

Fantastic Case

Lester T., Newegg
13 February 2014
  • Summary: It took me awhile to realize I had to take the top of the case off to put the power supply in. So if you get this case, don't try to put the power supply in from the inside of the case. You have to take the top off and the power supply drops right in. Which is nice, because the fan slot on the top of the case is for the power supply fan, so it keeps the airflow for the power supply separate from the rest of the case.
  • Pros: Great build quality, excellent airflow, pretty quiet, fan filters, nice brushed finish
  • Cons: None

Fantastic case, slightly difficult to work with

Eric, Amazon
28 January 2014
  • Summary: I'll try and keep it short and sweet, like this little case. I bought this case to downsize from my Corsair 350D to have a more travel-able case. Ini comparison to the 350D this case is definitely more difficult to work with but produces great results. I was able to remove the harddrive cage and fit an SSD as well as an HDD within the small bottom bracket.

  • Summary: Overall, I am very impressed and happy with this case. It is pretty compact, both height and depth-wise, for an mATX case. Build quality is up to the typical high Silverstone standard, and the included case fan is pretty quiet even on high speed. The styling is nice and understated, and it can hold a fair amount of drives and fit most single-gpu video cards. This will probably be my go-to mATX case for future builds.
  • Pros: High Quality, compact, quiet
  • Cons: could use a bit more space behind mobo tray for cables

Great Case

Mickey O'Tool, Amazon
26 December 2013
  • Summary: Sturdy all metal case. Leaving space for cables behind the motherboard is brilliant. Very quiet with 180mm included fan set to low speed. Upside down power supply a great idea. SSD mount at the bottom leaves tons of space for other drives. Love it!

Very Nice

Darrell P., Newegg

  • Summary: Get a modular power supply. There are pockets for cable management but a modular PSU will make things a ton easier.
  • Pros: Awesome case, everything about it rocks. The layout is great for cooling. I love the fan filters. This case is on par with the $200+ cases I have bought.
  • Cons: None
