5 out of 5 eggsHighly intelligent feature

Pros: Pro: The ceiling on this case is so highly intelligent. Seldom do people stack PC's on top of each other due to heat problems. The mesh at the top of the case is ideal for pushing out heat which usually accumulates at the top of these long media PCs. I mean, heat getting stuck at the center of the Media PCs has long been a problem, imho. As a result, media PCs overcompensate for this accumulation by adding 2 large, side in-take fans (one 120mm on each side of case) and two small exhaust (two 80 mm next to each other). This works, but generally not good -- especially when one of these large mesh's can do the trick!

Tilt the media pc, and exhaust still comes up from the top through the side of the case. Genius.

Cons: One caveat: Can't hurt to turn side air ducts into side air fans. My reason is the increase in air circulation still assists the internal components (e.g., video card, cpu heatsink and fan, and north and south heatsink) to move the stagnant, hot air up through the mesh at the top. More side fans, the better; that is, this will maximize air cooling through the plastic mesh at the top.

One clairvoyant vision: turn back fans into in-take fans. With the mesh at the top, all fans need to turn inward.

Other Thoughts: for crying out loud, put the front ports back on the front, not at the top of the case. This is a media PC. When i plug my microsoft 360 controller ports into the PC, the controller plugs will stick out the top. My tv stand can do it, but i would imagine not many others can.

front usb ports need to be usb 3.0, please. Why havn't all cases switched to this standard yet?

understandable limitations (due to the small size of this case):

what the heck happened to the 3.5 external drive?

Case needs more room for a more powerful power supply. I want to stick a minimum of a 650-700 watt psu in here.

Otherwise, fabulous work.

5 out of 5 eggstiny, quiet power

Pros: Tiny, full desktop power, quiet, well ventilated. In contrast to Antek's similar ISK 110 case, this InWin case has adequate120w PSU power for desktop cpus and the case does not leak EMI noise. The 47mm clearance for cpu heatsinks allows use of stock Intel coolers.

In this external power model, there is no no noise added from a tiny PSU fan and less heat is dumped into the case. The cpu's down-blowing fan is fine for cooling the remaining internal PSU components. Unlike others, I did not notice any whine from the external brick when powered off.

Cons: Inadequate build instructions. Blue power light too bright.

Other Thoughts: Tested configuration: 53w 3.6GHz Pentium G3470, Asrock H97M-IX/ac mobo, 4GB of 1.35v DDR3, 60GB ssd, no DVD, no HDD, Windows 7. Replaced stock all-alum heatsink with Intel stock alum+copper heatsink from higher-watt cpus. Total cost $223 after $20 mobo rebate.

Fan is barely audible at 12" from grill side at light load.

Under full prime95 load, cpu reached 73 degrees centigrade, mobo stayed at 41 degrees, fan at 2500rpm, Fan noise is mild, audible at 3ft from grill side. Exhaust heat mostly exits from bottom PSU end of the large grill, with good air flow.

The case looks usable with some low PCIe card but you must use case's existing knockout port instead of a bracket. I chose the H97 mobo to get PCIe 3.0, but that was pointless since I'm not using the PCIe slot.

The overly-bright blue power light can be entirely turned off by a mobo utility. I instead dimmed it with black-colored masking tape.

4 out of 5 eggsLove It

Pros: 1. The smallest mini-ITX case that comes with a slim drive bay. Excellent! It fits on my slide out keyboard tray so it is hidden when it's off and slide under my desk with the keyboard!
2. Fanless silent 120 watt power supply which is powerful enough to run a 65 watt TDP processor

Cons: 1. Does not have USB 3.0 front panel ports
2. Only when the PC if OFF is there a soft high pitched tone coming from the AC power adapter, but when you turn the PC on the soft high pitched tone goes away and the PC is totally silent.

Other Thoughts: I absolutely love this case. It is the smallest mini-ITX case I have found that comes with a 5-1/4" slim drive bay for my slim CD/DVD/Blu-Ray burner. And it also comes with a fanless 120 watt power supply which does not get hot at all even when I'm doing high powered processing and converting of files or creating Blu-Ray discs with my i7-3770T 45 watt TDP processor. Only when the PC if OFF is there a soft high pitched tone coming from the AC power adapter, but when you turn the PC on the soft high pitched tone goes completely away and the PC is totally silent. I'm using the Rosewill 80mm Low Profile CPU Cooler RCX-Z775-LP and the DH77DF Intel mini-ITX motherboard and the HP 32 inch WQHD (2560 x 1440) monitor connected to the display port on the motherboard running at 60Hz. WOW what a picture! According to the In-Win website this cases power supply can handle up to the i7-3770S 65W TDP processor with the motherboard that I have. It can also handle up to the Haswell i7-4770S 65W TDP processor with a different mini-ITX motherboard than the one I have and that Haswell processor can run a full 4K display running at 60Hz if you motherboard has a display port. I wish 3 things for the future version of this case:
1. I wish it came with USB 3.0 ports in the front.
2. I wish it came with a 180 to 200 watt fanless power supply so I could run the i7-3770K (77 watt) or the i7-4770K (84 watt) processor
3. I wish it was a little lower in height. Instead of 3.0" high, I wish it was 2-3/4" high.
4. I wish In-Win would come out with this case designed for a thin mini-ITX motherboard, then they could reduce the height to 2.0" and they would still have the domed screen top to accommodate the processor fan height. And reduce the width from 8.9" down to 7.4" because thin mini-ITX motherboards only need an external AC power pack, no inside inverter board to take up an extra 1-1/2" of space on the left side as it does in this motherboard. (FYI - thin mini-ITX motherboards have the inverter board built into the motherboard so no inverter board would be needed, the AC power pack plugs directly into the power input in the back of the motherboard.)

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect case for an all-in-one type build

Pros: Small and quiet system that can be attached to back of vesa compatible monitors.

Room on the bottom side of the case for a 2.5 inch hdd. Also room for a slim optical drive or another another hdd or ssd. If you chose another hdd/ssd you'll need an sata power cable Y-splitter to power the 2nd hdd/ssd. I mounted the ssd on the optical bracket but had to velco the bracket to the chassis.

The front panel usb cable had to be re-routed to the other side to reach the motherboard plug.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsAIO Build

Pros: I selected this case to mount to the back of a monitor. It comes with a vesa adapter which can be attached to the vesa points on the back of a monitor.

The case is thoughtfully designed and well made. The top and bottom can be removed with by removing a single screw in each. The bottom, under the motherboard, is designed for a 2.5 inch hdd and a thin optical drive. I substituted a sdd drive in place of the optical drive. This substitution required a Y sata power cable splitter to power both devices. The sdd attached to the optical tray but I needed to use velco to attach the optical tray to the case.

The front panel cable for the usb 2.0 dual sockets was too short the reach across the motherboad to the header plug. So I unsnapped the front panel and routed the cable out the opposite side.

The power cables have to be run across the gigabyte GA-Z87N-WIFI motherboard. The sata sockets are close to the power sockets as are the front-panel header cables, so there are a lot of cables to arrange in a small space.

I used the stock i5-4570s cooler and fan. I runs whisper quit and keeps the 65W cpu cool.

A variety of screws were provided for the motherboard, vesa mounts, hdd, and sdd.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsVery happy witht his case

Pros: Very simple layout; for a small case very very easy access; the access bay for the drive is well designed.

Cons: The usb cable to the header for usb is a bit tight on the motherboard I use; I seen a couple of mother boads where the usb header would not reach (you want a motherboard that places the usb headers towards the front or mid way). Adding another inch to the cable would have made things a bit simpler.
-
The capacitors (see the image on neweg) are decent but not top of the line. Not sure it matters at these wattages but worth mentioning.
-
Bit pricey for what it is but the only alternative I've seen is the asus case and a friend had a miserable time with that one (though it appears to have a higher quality and more efficient psu)

Other Thoughts: Built a small system with asrock b75m itx motherboard; g1610; g.skill F3-10600CL9D-4GBPK; crucial m4; windows 7; basically web browsing for my sister. The g1610 is actually not bad; the entier system uses around 36 watts; 50 watts peak (max gpu/cpu). with the ssd it boots pretty quick - quicker than my i7 off a hard drive. I think I paid $30 for the g1610 (also micro centers had the g1620 for $33). The g1610 is ivy bridge gpu core (haswel celeron were not yet available but should be early 2014). It runs incredibly cool and low power. highly recommended unless you need more cpu cycles (amd solution has faster graphics but use more power and run hotter).

5 out of 5 eggsI really like this thing.

Pros: The build quality on this is remarkably good for something made of steel and plastic. The steel is thicker and the plastic studier then you would expect. It has exactly the correct amount of power connectors and wire slack to hook up the mobo, a 2.5" HDD/SSD, and a slimline dvd-rom drive without any issues. The Intel stock CPU heatsink fits nicely. Don't even think about using the PCI-E slot for anything though, there is not enough room and the power supply isn't suited for the extra power draw. Once you get everything together, it looks pretty nice. I have mine on it's side. You can remove the unused plastic piece for the mount, since you only need one at a time.

Cons: This is strictly for home theatre PCs or small personal servers. If you keep that in mind going in, it does it's job extremely well and there are very few cons.

Other Thoughts: I used one of these in a small game server build, and I'm quite pleased with the results. You can get a board that supports Ivy bridge CPUs, drop a high clock i3 in there, and you've got a pretty decent setup. A small, quiet, inconspicuous black box with just a power cable and ethernet sticking out the back. :)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat ITX case, some limitations

Pros: Compact, quiet, external power brick (may be a con for some). Uses laptop style slim cd/dvd bay (may also be a con for others).

Cons: Depending on the positioning of the CPU socket on the motherboard, you may need to use something other than the stock heatsink. I've had issues with some boards because of this -- not a big deal, but something to watch out for.

Also, only has one 2.5" HDD bay. I ended up using a slim cd -> hdd converter to get around this, but for the price I wish in win included something like that already.

Other Thoughts: I like these models enough to have bought four for different uses (one for soho router w/ GA-C1007UN-D dual nic board), two misc linux toys, and a dedicated linux workstation for my parents. I was very happy to see newegg restocked them!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat HTPC case

Pros: The size is nice for an HTPC and the external power brick means the only fan in my setup is the CPU fan. The lights are not overly bright.

Cons: It's a just a little difficult to fish the power and SATA cables to the underside of the case where you mount the HDD and OD.

Other Thoughts: It isn't clear from the description but it comes with a slim power connection. Unlike a normal desktop you shouldn't need a separate adapter when using a laptop OD. There is a combined normal sized and small SATA power cable so you just route that to the bottom and have power for both the HDD and OD.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, small case

Pros: - Plenty of ventilation
- No fans
- Supplies enough power for a pretty beefy CPU and RAM

Cons: - No front panel usb3 (if you care about that)
- 'Legs' when flat or vertical are somewhat unstable and the case screw casing sticks up to much for it to be placed horizontal without using the legs (if it was detached I would worry it would scratch the surface of the media furniture). On the other hand that means more ventilation via the grills in the bottom I suppose. I store mine horizontally and out of sight though.
- Only fits slim cdrom (irrelevant for me)
- No IR 'area' for the CIR header receiver (assuming your board has one)
- Only one full size and mini sata power cable (also irrelevant for me)
- I wish opening the case was tool-less, but it fits pretty tight so I guess you could do without the screws anyway.
- Would be nice if the case extended out a little bit to support a VFD/LCD -- the only reason I can think of I would want to have the thing visible.
- Would also be nice if the sata power cables were detachable. The case/board is pretty cramped as it is.

Other Thoughts: I had some real trouble finding a HTPC case designed for *just* mini ITX -- it was between this one and a Lian Li (that was out of stock). I was worried the cpu I bought would suck too much power to use this case's psu, but it seems to be ok so far and I do all my decoding at the client side. The only device I really have attached is an mSATA drive directly to the board (though I did have a full size cdrom connected for the initial build). If your worried about the clearance using the stock Intel cpu fan, fear not. The grill on the top of the case extends up enough. For me the most important thing was for it to be small and have plenty of ventilation -- this fits the bill perfectly. All and all the case is no frills but the construction seems to be pretty good. Given the size of the case it seems a little expensive, but the Lian Li I was looking out was nearly 2x the price.
