Nothing special

Taylor R., Newegg
15 April 2011
  • Summary: The front panel cables are unusually long but I wouldn't consider this a con.
  • Pros: Fancy face plate. The fans are quiet. Removable motherboard tray.
  • Cons: This is a cheap $40 computer case with a $60 face plate. The power supply bay was defective. The top portion was not cut out so the metal hit the external power connector on the power supply. The rear I/O panel was too big so the motherboard shield would not snap in place. I tested this with 2 di...

I love this case

Paul B., Newegg
27 March 2011
  • Summary: I got this case from a local shop. I was preparing for a mATX build and was looking around and they had a couple on the floor. It looked great, owner gave me a deal on the price, and I left with the case instead of a video card.
  • Pros: Looks great, good cooling, lots of room, removeable mobo tray, quiet, perfect size
  • Cons: Price was a little hard to swallow, but after finishing my build I'm happy I got this case.

The perfect mATX case ... nearly

James H., Newegg
27 December 2010
  • Summary: I've dealt with other mATX cases and they usually have chintzy components and an ugly plastic front bezel, and are a nightmare to work inside. This one provides both functionality and classy, refined aesthetics. I'd buy it again in a heartbeat
  • Pros: This is a very well-designed, quality case, with plenty of room for a mATX build. I used it to house a budget computer I built for my mother for Christmas and it does everything that it needs to. Classy black finish, excellent airflow, quiet case fans. There is no room behind the motherboard for ...
  • Cons: My quibbles are minor but I'm not going to knock a star off, because this case was great for what I needed it to do. - front blue LEDs are a bit bright for my tastes - the documentation that comes with the case is a joke, and it's incorrect on the best order to put things in... not a case I'd rec...

It's Tough to Find a Good mATX Case That

Nicholas i., Newegg
24 May 2010
  • Summary: If this were an ATX case, with a case this expensive I would have expected more resiliency, a thicker gauge metal used in the frame and body panels, and some better panel gap tolerance. It is for these reasons that I give 4 eggs instead of 5.
  • Pros: When it comes to mATX cases, there aren't a whole lot of smart options. Most have terrible airflow, a lot have bad layouts, some place the power supply in the odd "vertical" position. Not to mention there simply are no other microATX cases that utilize 120mm fans. This one has none of the faults ...
  • Cons: ...However... The build quality in places is noticeably shoddy, particularly in the steel panels' thickness. That is to say, it's wobbly at times. Ironically, the aluminum bezel is detectably sturdier than the rest of the case because it's very thick. While the motherboard tray is "removable," yo...

...now that's sharp!

Matthew S., Newegg
7 May 2010
  • Summary: This is my first Micro ATX case build and I was worried about clutter and air flow. Not anymore. And this thing is just...sharp. For me this case will hold an MSI 890GX mobo, Antec EarthWatts Green 430W, GSkill ECO DDR3 1333 2x2GB 1.35v, Powercooler GoGreen HD5750, OCZ SSD 120GB and Bluray Drive.
  • Pros: -Classy aluminum front panel -Small form factor with plenty of room under the hood -Removable mobo tray is a plus -Two good 120mm fans with grills
  • Cons: -Price -Cable management options (empty 5.25 bay for extra cables is it)

Fantastic case!

Ryan C., Newegg
7 May 2010
  • Pros: This is a very well constructed case that is lightweight yet highly durable. It has lots of useful features such as removable motherboard tray, fan grills, and a front intake filter. This is the perfect case for a mATX gaming computer that is small yet fully equipped!
  • Cons: Minor nitpick, but the front LEDs are very bright. I had to place electrical tape across the front of them to keep them from illuminating my room at night.

Nice little case

Anonymous, Newegg
2 February 2010
  • Summary: would buy this case again for sure.
  • Pros: Aesthetically pleasing and a very nice design overall. Working in a cramped case is difficult, so having a removable motherboard tray was fantastic, allowing me to work in the open with very ample lighting to hook everything up before inserting it back into the case. I liked the 2 120mm fans, whi...
  • Cons: Definitely need a modular power supply with this case because even with a short optical drive, there's only about 1" of clearance, and having a traditional power supply would make dealing with the cables difficult.

Good little mATX case

Derek D., Newegg
27 January 2010
  • Summary: My system: Silverston TJ08-B Micro-ATX Case MSI 785 mATX Socket AM3 DDR3 mb AMD Phenom II x3 720 Black edtion @ 3.8ghz Corsair H50 water cooling system Corsair XMS DDR3-1600 8-8-8-24 2 x WD black edition 500GB in RAID-0 XFX Radeon 5870 LG DVDRW Antec 750w modular power supply
  • Pros: All metal case, even the drive bay covers are metal. Good air design. Has room enough for most gamers. Removable motherboard tray. Anytime you try to turn a Micro-ATX case into a gaming machine you can expect to do some modding, this was no exception. I did manage to fit Corsair's H50 closed circ...
  • Cons: The DVDRW and the Power Supply are soo close to each other they actually touch. The front air filter is horrible, doesn't allow for any airflow.

Excellent case, one flaw

Nicholas M., Newegg
21 August 2009
  • Summary: Take out the 3.5 drive bay, remount it at the bottom of the case (where there is plenty of room) and you have yourself a phenomenal micro-ATX case.
  • Pros: Fairly compact, cool, very quiet, mostly easy to work in. If you're looking for something to impress your friends this won't do the job, but I definitely trust the construction, and aside from the absolutely abysmal place where you're supposed to install the hard drive, this case is an excellent ...
  • Cons: The 3.5 drive bay is just in a bad place, a little pricey for what it is
