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.
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...
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)
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.
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.
Summary: Just wanted a decently priced case with fans included that didn't look like a child's toy. This case is classy and timeless.
Pros: Plenty of room for aftermarket cooler. Nice solid faceplate with stylish power/reset buttons and front ports. Good airflow with those two 120mm fans included in the price. Regular PSU fit nicely with plenty of room for optical drive. Overall sturdy construction with easily removable side panels (...
Cons: Fans sound like you would expect two 120mm fans going at 1200 rpm to sound.
Pros: great little case, high quality construction, i like the style too removable motherboard tray is easy to use, but it may cause issues with large coolers, you may have to install a large cooler with the tray in the case i love the front and rear 120 fans, many small cases use 80 fans
Cons: wish it had more than 2 3.5 internal bays, there is definately space, so it would have been nice to have an extra hdd bay, maybe removable
