5 out of 5 eggsGreat Chassic

Pros: I have two of these in action at my office.
Nice and tight, great if you want a compact chassis.

Cons: if you're going to use a 2.5 SSD make sure you buy a holder.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for turning an older rig into a HTPC

Pros: +Great size for an ATX case.
+Has pretty good ventilation for a case stuffed with parts.
+Looks pretty good.

Cons: -Cable management can be a beast, especially with any drives added in the 5 inch bays. Modular PSU recommended.

-Make sure your video card isnt' too long to fit in the case. My Geforce 9600 just barely fit in with the PCI-E power cable sticking out the back.

Other Thoughts: -Excess PSU Cables can be pretty much shoved into the optical drive bays but with drives in there it becomes a real pain.

-Very bright blue LED that never turns off on the front panel. Although this could be something on the front panel not hooked in correctly so i won't list it as a con.

-very thin, had to buy a new heatsink as my aftermarket one would not fit (and I had taken apart my old stock one for the fan.)

Overall if you have an older rig (mine is an old dual core AMD rig I built as my first gaming PC in college) that you want to turn into a smaller HTPC this is the perfect case to do it in.

4 out of 5 eggsBest compact (mini tower) case for the money

Pros: Compact dimensions. Relocating the power supply to save depth. Screwless drive installation rails. Good bang for buck.

Cons: Mediocre gauge metal. Cheap glue-on rubber feet.

Other Thoughts: The best feature of this case is how compact it is without sacrificing on component size. This is done by relocating the power supply to the front using an internal power cable harness. The only drawback to this is you cannot access the on/off switch on the power supply without popping off the front panel (which can be done easily if needed in a troubleshooting setting, but not something you will do routinely). This is an acceptable drawback for me. With this compact case, you can fit a full sized ATX motherboard in here, a standard power supply, and still have about as compact of a case as you can get, all for about $40. I would have paid an extra $20 to have a higher quality gauge of aluminum, but for some the savings is worth it. The case comes with glue-on rubber feet which usually fall off in time. I would have preferred these feet can be secured with screws instead of glue.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid

Pros: Much smaller than my old case (a Cooler Master CM690) Seems solidly built, an ATX motherboard fits and isn't cramped. Space for 3 case fans; an 80mm and two 120mm.

Cons: A bit larger than I expected. I would like to have seen space for a 120mm fan in place of the 80mm. I think it should have included a second set of rubber feet, it would be nice to be able to switch back and forth between setting the case on its side and its back.

Other Thoughts: I am impressed with the quality and plan on buying another one for my next build.

2 out of 5 eggsNot So Great

Pros: It's a case. It holds your computer's guts together.

Cons: Overall it screams cheap. It has those PCI blanking slots that you have to twist out, and can never replace. Also it has a knock-out on the front for a FireWire port but doesn't have one and there doesn't appear to be a way to add it. The PSU goes in the front and there is an extension cable that takes the power cord from the connector on it to the back of the case. When you do that though, and put the front panel cover on, it causes the logo thing to stick out.

Other Thoughts: This case is primarily designed as a desktop case (laying down, as opposed to standing up, though it can be used both ways) and as such if you do use it as a tower, the optical drive will be sideways. I meant to order a different case, but by the time this arrived I didn't bother with shipping it back and getting something else.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Motel666,

We are sorry to hear you are having issues with our computer case. We try our best features based on each case's price. Please review other cases we have that fits your specifications.

4 out of 5 eggsFor the Price it is okay

Pros: It looks flimsy but very much solid. I was easily able to put the components one by one in their places in the case without much effort. However, the space is somewhat limited only if you are working with a non-modular power supply like I did. Cables and wires pretty much filled up whatever space left over. One egg off because I cut myself trying to put the power supply :) Watch out for them sharp edges. All in all, this is a great computer case for the price.

Cons: It just that you don't have much free space once everything goes in.

5 out of 5 eggsNice case.

Pros: I have built many computers over the last 20 years and this is probably the most unique case I have ever used. The PSU is bottom FRONT mounted and draws air from the side and ejects hot air out the front. Mounting rails seemed more than sturdy enough for me. Single 120mm fan at the top keeps my build quite cool. Cable management is a challenge, but just take your time and use a little imagination and you will get it. No issues with any of the screws being cross/mis-threaded. Plenty of screws and standoffs for my build. Sturdy when system is complete. Very compact--accepts a full sized ATX board yet is only about 80% as wide as a your typical tower case and 75% as tall. Depth seems to be about the same. Fan at full speed (hooked up to molex only) is very quiet. Can barely hear it. Would buy again--excellent value.

Cons: Sharp edge alert! Not all of the edges in this thing are rounded so watch yourself. I did not cut myself but the possibility is there. Huge Cooler Master logo on the front of the case is obnoxious to me. I wish I could have had the option of sticking on a sticker or something...

4 out of 5 eggsNice LITTLE Case

Pros: + Holds an ATX Motherboard (duh, that's why you are looking at this case)

+ Can hold 2 HDDs, (possibly 3 with a little engineering) as well as 2 Optical drives

+ Sturdy for the price

+ More fan options than expected

+ Can hold mid-range graphics cards. I would go no bigger than 8" though, unless you get a very short PSU.

+ Standard PSU works. Obviously a longer PSUwould have clearance issues, but I can't see needing more than 600watts in this case.

+ Price

Cons: - Top and Side Fan opening aesthetics. Those 2 fan positions have holes for 80mm, 96mm, and 120mm fans. Unfortunately, no matter what size you put in there, the extra screw-holes make it look ugly. Should have just made them both 120mm and that's all.

- Cheap snap-off expansion covers. Yup, the good-old "wiggle and pray I don't scrape this across the motherboard when it finally comes off" kind...

- Grey interior and back... Seriously, I don't understand why they can't just paint these budget cases black through and through. Is gray paint that much cheaper?

- Cable Management... Knowing this was going to be an issue, I bought a modular PSU. even with just the MoBo, CPU, and one SATA power cable being used, it still looks like a mess.

Other Thoughts: This works for my build. Slim ATX and standard ATX should work just fine. I doubt eATX would work though.

Do yourself a favor and get a modular PSU... Seriously...

5 out of 5 eggsGreat choice for many reasons

Pros: + easily converts from tower orientation to desktop
+ VERY small foot print so it's good for HTPC or small work spaces
+ excellent design and layout, holds full ATX well
+ awesome air flow
+ vent holes on the side panel allow for "bottom fan" style PSU to get fresh air
+ great fit/finish level, esp for a case in this price range
+ comes with a 120mm "top" fan, and has mount points for a 80/92/120mm on the side panel and an 80mm on bottom, and 2 on rear
+ works with full size expansion slot cards, which important to know if you are going to use this for a HTPC case
+ drive rails are way simple but work great

Cons: - the bottom 80mm fan mount point is unusable with an ATX motherboard installed. With a mATX mobo you should be all set
- comes with only one set of rubber feet. It'd be nice to have a 2nd set so if you change your mind later on about case orientation you'd have the feet to allow for that.
- two rear mount fan points don't have the best ventilation or mounting spots, I'd not use them myself.
- the PSU vents to the front. In tower orientation this shouldn't be too bad but as a desktop it'll be blowing warm air right at the user, Eskimos take note
- the wires for front panel lights/switches partially block the front vent for the PSU which may reduce airflow
- holds only 1 internal HDD, you may get a 2nd into the 5 1/4
bay but considering the way the drive rails work, and that you must use the drive rails, I doubt a 2nd HDD is an option

Other Thoughts: ~ I used a Rosewill multimedia card reader 3.5" drive. You should use the drive rails marked FDD to mount an external 3.5" drive
~ I used a Corsair CX430 v2 PSU and it is exactly the same length as the drive bay cage. The intake fan aligns perfectly with the side panel vent
~ strongly consider using a modular PSU with this case to help eliminate excess power cables although there was plenty of space under the PSU and in the 2nd, unused 5 1/4" drive bay
~ This is the 2nd build I've used this case for and I'll definitely use this case again in the future
