STELLAR music machine case
Pros: Tiny. Has VESA mounts. Has internal PSU that will more than power 65 watt TDP or lower processors with an IGP and a single hard drive. Fits mini-ITX boards (although, barely!). Comes with all the cables you need. Huge piece of black mesh on the side that makes it feel open-air.
Cons: No internal fans. Won't fit much more than a stock HSF, and I doubt it will even fit the HSF that came with my 5800K (good thing I ain't using that in this case). Needs another 2.5" drive mount.
Other Thoughts: Currently running a VIA C7 mITX board, half gig of RAM, and Server 2003 in this. It makes just enough heat to sort of feel like a running computer. Great daily driver, and a wonderful music-only machine. Just...make sure you have a CPU cooler that is literally no taller than your motherboard's backplate, 'cuz it won't fit.

loud power supply fan
Pros: small compact i mounted it under the top of my work bench.
Cons: loud power supply fan, i took apart the power supply and used a 5v diode from a noctua fan i bought some years back to slow the fan down.
Other Thoughts: cut the noise in half with my little mod, now i really like it.

Great compact case for HTPC with one major caveat
Pros: Well designed interior has two compartments. The lower compartment is for the slim DVD and 2.5" HDD (no real ventilation). The upper compartment houses the Power Supply and MB
Cons: Power supply fan is loud.
Other Thoughts: I was looking for a case as small as the excellent USFF Dell Optiplex case and this was the closest in terms of size.
