Good box with some problems

Dr David Bellamy, Amazon

  • Summary: The PSU will not take the standard CPU fan for a Core i3 on top of a Gigabyte SKT-1155 H61N-USB. You need to buy a low profile fan, I would imagine, in every circumstance. The HDD will only fit in if you have also memory with NO heatsink. A bit of a squash in parts, but when running does so very quietly.

TT Noisy Element

  • Summary: This fancy case is very small inside, there is not much space to work with cables or so... Strange layout for HDD and DVD rom, and more less there is no gap between CPU fan and PSU. The distance from motherboard surface to the power supply is around 55 mm only! So any bigger CPU fan and you are stuck... Major problem in this case is that noisy/loud fan inside power supply... Its louder than Corsair HX550 in my gaming PC!

Good case but be careful choosing your motherboard

Tom W. "Flyby", Amazon
1 March 2011
  • Summary: This is a nice little case. Generally well made (for the price) and well laid out but.... For most buyers it will be fine, so long as they stick to an Atom based (or similar low power CPU) motherboard. Big problems may well occur if you choose an AM3 or 1156 socket based board as the CPU+heatsink stack may well not fit under the power supply.ou've only got about 40mm between socket and PSU which is much less than many heatsinks, even low profile ones like the Shuriken...

  • Excerpt: Изготовитель позиционирует корпус как "Create for eSports", но сделать на его базе игровой компьютер не получится: даже однослотовые видеокарты на которых можно игать имеют систему охлаждения как на двухслотовой, а места в корпусе нет. Пробовал ставить процессор с TDP=95W, но так и не смог подобрать кулер, пришлось "колхозить" с переносом БП в переднюю часть корпуса что бы установить Cooler Master Vortex Plus.
  • Pros: Хорошее качество сборки. Вполне симпатичный дизайн. Полноценный отсек 5,25". Наличие внешнего отсека 3,5"
  • Cons: Шумный БП стандарта SFX (кому интересно - вентилятор 80х80х15). Место для процессорного кулера высотой не более 45 мм. Нет места для установки дополнительных вентиляторов.
