The BT566T from InWin is a low profile microATX desktop case that works great for commercial uses where the computer needs to be unobtrusive. It’s great for kiosks, video wall controllers, or information panel controllers. You can program them and let them go or hook them to a network and keep the updated.

Inside the case is a motherboard tray with pre-formed standoffs for easy installation. The drive cages are removable, again to make your life easier. A 300W power supply is included.

Keeping every think cool in such a small package is important, that’s why there are ventilation holes on the top, both sides and the back. There’s also an 80mm fan on one side to increase air flow. The top vents are strategically placed over the CPU and the expansion slots.

4 out of 5 eggsNice case but tight

Pros: Nice looking case. Flip down front panel hides annoying flashing lights on optical drive and card readers. Easy to mount drives. Solid construction. Good buy for $50.

Cons: Though the drives are easy to mount, wiring is tight. Could barely lock down the HD bay after I wired up the HD. Power supply wires run really close to the case fan. Had to use a zip tie to hold them back from the fan. Optical drive sits right on top of where the SATA cables connect to my MoBo. The case itself is pretty long.

Other Thoughts: I guess tight fits are to be expected in a HTPC case. I would buy this case again, but probably will experiment with another case for my next build.

5 out of 5 eggsSuperb slim case.

Pros: Really solid case, heavy gauge steel with well fitted plastic front and steel top.
Very well thought out fitment of items inside case, includes snap in place for side exhaust fan and the CPU fan tray really works to help increase the efficiency of your stock S775 cooler.
I built a small HTPC with this case utilizing the ASUS mATX mobo with the built in Nvidia 9300 graphics and I ended up with a super performance machine that was virtually silent and which hooked directly to my Sony HDTV with a single HDMI cable that carried both sound and video.
Excellent quality small form ps included with case.
The simple way it comes apart and snaps back together is great. Not tool less, as you need to remove screws to take the top off and to mount the drives, but very convenient to use anyway.
I used both SATA and IDE drives in this case, and while IDE means a challenge to route the larger wires, it was do-able.

Cons: The depth of the case. While being one of the shallowest slim cases available, it *just* fits in a standard stereo component sized rack. I eventually replaced this great case with another Inwin which is taller, but quite a bit shallower.
Only "low profile" PCI cards can be used with this case, and no riser card is offered to accommodate full sized cards

Other Thoughts: I unequivocally recommend this case. It might not be presented in the pictures here as a very attractive case, but in person, it is quite nice in its understated simplicity. My wife really liked that it did NOT stand out as a computer when located in the living room.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Case

Pros: Sturdy case, Feet on bottom positioned well so front feet are not too far out and hanging off media shelf like last case, takes standard size power supply unlike last case which I could not get a new power supply for when it died, stylish blue glowing lights on front panel, very quiet with sufficient fans and plenty of space to work. It will fit a full size ATX board that has many slots for all of your TV tuner cards. :-)

Cons: There is a large panel that is spring loaded covering the
5 1/4 drive bays which is not a very well thought out design and just brushing against it wrong pops it open but being that it is hidden in a closet anyway for me, I can deal with it. There is a space on front panel for a digital display which can be purchased but without it looks like it is missing something.

Other Thoughts: One of the best cases I have ever purchased.

3 out of 5 eggsMeh, it's okay, I guess.

Pros: Good height - will accept full height expansion cards. Easy to get into. Relatively quiet, product literature was better than I expected but still not great. Cool rubberized vibration isolators for HDD and room for 4 of them at that.

Cons: Fans only come with molex adapters and pull so little air they should be replaced with ones that can be attached to the MB. VFD is an extra that costs an additional 80% the price of the case itself. Manual states you probably will have to take your dvd tray face plate off because it will not otherwise fit in the slot. Also, the disk eject button does not align with my "Light On" Blu Ray drive, so I either have to trailer park engineer it, or right click within windows and select "Eject" from the context menue. The HDD LED is virtually impossible to see, even at night... You folks get the point: you get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: I was going for a budget build, but I skimped on the wrong item. Not newegg's fault, of course.

4 out of 5 eggsVery clever design

Pros: Put together very cleverly - very easy to work with. Any spot that might be hard to get to just comes off. Nothing mounts to the outside shell of the case, and it's held in by one screw, so opening and closing it up is a snap - no unplugging required. Very suave looking, especially with a black card reader and optical drive.

Cons: Don't even think about IDE cables in this thing - it being tiny is a very good thing for the most part, but it also leaves not as much room to fit things. Super low profile makes it very hard to find an aftermarket CPU cooler. Nonstandard-sized power supply, you might be out of luck if it breaks, or if it's too weak.

Other Thoughts: Its small size is both its greatest asset and its biggest drawback. Can't expect a lot of expansion opportunities from something this slim, but for a simple HTPC, this should work wonders.

3 out of 5 eggsToo noisy for htpc use in small room

Pros: Less depth than many cases.
Looks good.

Cons: CPU location on motherboard may prevent use of optical drive.
noisy power supply

Other Thoughts: I use this case as a diskless mythtv remote frontend in my bedroom.
I can't use an optical drive because the microatx motherboard (abit) puts the cpu in the middle right of the board and it buts into where an optical drive would go.

The power supply is also noisy. I cured that by removing it's cheapo junk fan and then mounting an arctic cool quiet fan on the outside of the power supply blowing in. Hopefully the PS won't burn up. I don't care as long as the noise goes away.

3 out of 5 eggsOK little case

Pros: Very compact
Main case fan (80mm) is very quiet

Cons: Internal 60mm PSU fan is very noisy and has no tachometer output
Floppy bay and motherboard power hits cooling fan
Poor cooling on HDD and drive bays - low heat HDD needed

Other Thoughts: I put in a Core2 Duo E6700-based machine into it, with video capture card, one hdd and one dvd-rw, and it runs fine. For debugging a motherboard, I could not fit a regular floppy drive into this case, the floppy drive would hit the internal main fan. Also I had to jury-rig a shield for the fan such that when I plug in the ATX power cable to the motherboard, the slack on the cable doesn't run into the fan and seize it. The hard drive does not get much cooling at all, so use a lower power HDD. The worst problem I had is the internal PSU fan, a 60mm. From first power on, it's noisy and annoying, and I worry it will seize someday and I can't actually see it fail until it's too late.

5 out of 5 eggsMy First HTPC

Pros: Skinny, easy to build, sturdy, nice price, holds 2 hard drives

Cons: The side 80 mm fan blocks half the power supply vents, if you feel the fan it gets really hot right at that point, i highly suggest the you purchase ARCTIC COOLING ARCTIC FAN 3TC 80mm. this fan will solve the heat problem. i would also suggest getting a different CPU heat sink the stock one from AMD gets really hot and noise, A heat sink that fits nicely into this case is XIGMATEK EP-CD901 92mm for 18 bucks

Other Thoughts: This case is to long for my media cabinet. I wish that i would have gotten the other HTPC case from i win, it's taller, same width, but much shorter. i think it would be much easier to install a larger quieter heat sink.
