5 out of 5 eggsVery Well Built

Pros: Compact and very solidly built, the best Thin Mini ITX case I have used so far. Everything fit perfectly and the construction is heavy gauge, partially because of the optional monitor stand which would be pretty good in some situations.

Cons: Angled SATA cable exits in wrong direction. I haven't checked if that is because of the motherboard I used not following specifications, but it would be nice if the case came with two proprietary cables, one angled one way and one angled another. As it was, I had to put a piece of electrical tape in the inside of the chassis to keep the metal edge from digging at the wrong-facing connector during assembly. This is a half-egg deduction only because the rest of the case is so brilliant.

Other Thoughts: I am going to buy another one of these for use with a higher-end Q87mobo, and we'll see if the SATA connector angles the wrong way on that one. I'll update this if I can.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Case - I bought 5 of these!

Pros: As a pc tech of 20 years, I consider the other 2 positive reviews (dated prior to mine) as accurate. So, In this review I will cover other information. For starters, this case does BEST with a Haswell Dual Pentium 3.2. The CPU is on par with a first gen i5, so do not underestimate this CPU. I say this because the heat from an i5 and i3 can be burning hot to the touch inside this case. Second, make sure you buy a sold state hard drive. Do your research and get a brand that is super fast. Also, Win 7 Pro will then boot in about 7 seconds. This case is a perfect HTPC Kodi box and I have even used it with Photoshop CS5 with no issues.

Cons: I have tried dozens of cases for mITX and Thin mini... and in my opinion this is the best case on the market. In-Win designers are genius.. but even so, they can improve the case in three ways. First, the internal USB connector to the front panel is too short. Some ECS boards will NOT reach and you will need to buy a USB extender and they are hard to find. I blame ECS for this, but whatever. Second, In-Win should include a little packet of thermal paste. As a tech, I bought a tub for $ 30 and it will last a century (not kidding.) and finally, I hope they do NOT discontinue the case (they run out constantly everywhere) and I would like them to upgrade the front USB ports so there are 4.. or at least one is USB 3. Finally, the front slot for a media reader is a total waste and should be eliminated from future models.

Other Thoughts: When buying a case that works with THIN mini ITX, In-Win got it right Other cases have good power supplies, but the power brick in those other cases are only 60 watts. This is going to be an issue with Haswell CPUs.. but NOT with this In-Win case. Ventilation can be improved with this case if they use the mini speaker ports to create instead some sort of air intake.. this would further push air out of the case and assist the internal blower. By improving the design, the case would not get so hot with the i3 and i5 Ivy Bridge and Haswell CPUs.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper happy with this case

Pros: This case was a little goofy to open up at first, but once I figured out how it all went together I really like it. It's really sturdy and all of the internal components fit together in a logical way. The 120W power adapter is great and it has no problem powering my Intel i5 CPU plus all the typical accessories.

Cons: Newegg says they are out of stock...I was going to buy another one!

Manufacturer Response:

We are very appreciate that you like K2 case. We will follow up with Newegg to make sure that they will have the stock as soon as possible.
Thank you.

Best Regards,
In Win customer service team

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful case

Pros: - Extremely well built, everything fits perfectly (with the motherboard I used)
- Includes not just heat-sink, but also the fan (pre-mounted in case)
- All internal cables are exactly the right length (no cable ties needed!)
- Tool-less installation of internal 2.5" HD
- Power supply can do 110V and 220V
- Internal USB A plug, for smart card reader (?) or USB drive (see pictures)
- Looks very sleek
- Very quiet fan/heat sink
- For me, no need for extra case fans, but it has mounts for 2 tiny ones

Cons: - No thermal paste or sticker on heat sink included (buy separately!)
- Heavy (but probably needed for version that includes monitor stand)
- Non-monitor stand version has plastic cover instead (see product pic's)
- ELEVEN! screws need to be removed to get to motherboard
- With some motherboards, cables might be too short and fan might not fit
- It takes a little wiggling of the inner metal cover to expose motherboard

Other Thoughts: I've built quite a few computer systems over the years, but this one was just such a pleasure to assemble. Everything just fits soooo nicely! It's unbelievable. Beautiful case. Very well done. I was so happy to see how perfect all the screw positions and cable lengths were that I decided that the case definitely deserves 5 eggs, despite the couple of cons I listed. (For example, in comparison, the Antec ISK110 VESA just feels really sloppy and cheap. No fun.)

A couple of caveats:

- Buy thermal paste! (not included and heat sink doesn't have the usual sticker either)
- Don't stick the CMOS battery on top of the USB plugs. (the heat sink will warp the board)
- Only supports THIN Mini-ITX with external PSU that plugs directly into motherboard
- Make sure you buy a motherboard that has the CPU at exactly the same location as the listed compatible Intel boards, otherwise the heat sink won't fit. Also, it helps if the connectors (power, audio, usb, front panel header) are in the same spot as all the cables are sized to fit exactly.

My build:

- GIGABYTE GA-B75TN motherboard (N82E16813128588)
- Intel Core i5-3470S (N82E16819116876)
- IMPORTANT: Themal paste! (N82E16835100017)
- G.SKILL 2x4GB SO-DIMM DDR3 1600 (N82E16820231472)
- Some old SSD that I had lying around

System boots EXTREMELY quickly. BIOS POST takes almost no time at all.

Under full load, the 4 CPU cores go up to 78-80 deg C.
