5 out of 5 eggsGreat choice for small HTPC

Pros: Great for small form factor HTPCs.
Contrary to some reviews, the case fan is relatively quiet when run at low speeds.
Dedicated filtered intake for the CPU.

Cons: Filter is mounted with screws on the inside of the case, meaning to clean it you have to open the case.
Power Supply uses a non-standard form factor, so replacing it will require going through the case manufacturer.

Other Thoughts: Keep in mind, this case is about the same size, if not smaller, than a cable box, and has a cooling capacity to match. You’ll have to build around the cooling limitations, meaning you aren’t going to be cooling an i7 nor an FX CPU in this case. I’m using a Pentium Dual core CPU running on a low profile cooler and it runs at 50C under load in this case.
The cooler is another thing to consider, while I haven’t tested it, I don’t believe the Intel stock cooler will fit in this case, I preemptively purchased a Zotec low profile cooler that I was sure would fit. AMD stock coolers MAY fit, depending on how big the cooler is.
I did have an issue with the power supply after about 2 months of constant use, and as stated its a non-standard form factor. However, I’m not taking off an egg due to the excellent Customer support I received and the timely RMA response and allowing me to only RMA the power supply and not the entire case.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Small form factor was perfect for use as a MythTV frontend in my livingroom.

Cons: Power supply has only 1 SATA power plug. Not an issue in my setup, but could be a hindrance if you wanted to install disc drive and did not have an adapter.

Other Thoughts: Some reviews stated there was no mount for an SSD. This is incorrect. The SSD can be mounted sideways under the disc drive bay.

Based on other reviews I immediately replaced the stock fan, so I have no idea if it's as loud as advertised.

5 out of 5 eggsLove this Case

Pros: I love it. No, it has no slots in back. But what are you expecting to add to a mini-ITX board? If you do, buy a different case. You can get a card in with a riser extension.

You should be prepared to buy wireless antennae and modify the case if you need wireless. I've done this. Trivial to do. ($10).

Also, you may want to buy one of the USB plates and strip the cables. This will let you easily get two more USB ports on the back from most motherboards. ($5)

Cons: Probably, if I could change any single thing, I would change the drive cage to better accommodate more than one 2.5" drive.

Drive accommodation is the one thing that is not well illustrated. But this is not an insurmountable problem and I would buy this case again in a minute.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect Case for HTPC - it has SSD mount points.

Pros: 1)Comes with the Mini SATA power / data cable and mounting screws required for the ODD.

(2) Nice layout, sturdy construction, it's the perfect form factor for an HTPC

(3) It has mount points for 2.5" SSD/HDD

(4) Considering its size, relatively easy to work with.

Cons: Quite minor, since I know this before purchasing, but there is no expansion bay to allow you to use your PCIe slot on the MITX board.

Other Thoughts: Parts list:
This case, MSI AM1I MoBo, Athlon 5350 AM1, 64GB SSD, 1 x 4GB Team Elite DDR3 1333 RAM, LG CT40N BDROM notebook ODD and NAVI Bluetooth (candy-bar) Keyboard (should have used RF so i can get to BIOS but ah well...).

I am running Windows 10 TP on this unit and it is as smooth as butter.

Contrary to other reviews, it HAS SSD mounts - no brackets required. The SSD mounts cross-wise on the underside of the DVD tray (with the 4 screw holes under the SSD), so that the power/SATA connectors are just aft of the front panel USB ports. It mounts perfectly with the right screws so it does not interfere with the ODD operation.

The case also comes with the very fine screws required to mount the ODD; I only needed to use 3 of them and there is no vibration during DVD/BD playback.

5 out of 5 eggsnice sturdy htpc

Pros: The case is very sturdy with the whole body being very rigid. the included 80mm fan is a little loud for but i planned to replace to begin with. The 2.5 inch mounting is great for ssds but if you install a hdd it may cause vibrations. cable managment is limited to the small space in front of the power supply. Another plus i did not know when purchasing it came with the SATA/power cable for slim odd.

Cons: wish it had usb 3.0 but knew it didn't when purchasing.

4 out of 5 eggsNice, but with a minor annoyance

Pros: This case looks nice, is well built, and has lots of ventilation space. My Mini ITX motherboard fit like a charm, and spacers were already in place. Everything fit in snug. There wasn't an outlet for the expansion card on my motherboard, but I wasn't planning on using that anyway. All the headers reached nicely where they were supposed to go, with very little cable management needed. Speaking of cable management, there was plenty of space to accomplish this. Included cables and SATA power adapter were good size for this case. Overall design seems very nice!

Cons: My chief complaint is a bit minor, and I can't talk too bad about it because I'm actually trying to shove a 2.5" SSD in there with no adapters, as well as a full 3.5" HDD. I thought I could maybe figure something out since I'm not using the DVD/CD bay. And, really, it's SO close to being usable. I can tell they tried to accommodate somewhere with the spacing on some of the mounting holes, but they just didn't achieve this. In fact, the holes are even the incorrect diameter - I had to drill them out a bit just to get the screws through. But, again, I'm trying to shove a SSD into a DVD bay, so I can't complain too much. The other 3.5" drive fits snug underneath, and has direct airflow from the system fan.

The other thought I had is the cover is kinda a pain to fit back on correctly. I dunno what it is, and I've worked with several cases before, but it takes me a few tries on this guy to get to lips to seal just right. I also replaced the case screws with thumbscrews.

Other Thoughts: Even with the minor flaws, I'd recommend this case to a friend who has similar requirements.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: The case itself is very sturdy and the included e-sata connection in front is very nice. The power supply is ample for most of what you could need for the motherboards that fit in this case and I have no complaints for the layout.

The case cover comes off and goes on really easily, easier than any other mini itx case i've ever dealt with.

Cons: The bad is that the included 60mm case fan is pretty loud, but its not overpowering, just a low quality fan, so I'm not expecting much from it.

Other Thoughts: Mini itx is really tiny, so I had do some serious poking around to find a cpu fan that would fit in this case. I'm running an LGA775 socked am2+, and with the motherboard, couldn't go above 62mm.

5 out of 5 eggsImpressive

Pros: Solid, Heavy, Easy access, Plenty of room.

Cons: Maybe a bit larger than I would have liked. No VESA mount to attach to back of a monitor.

Other Thoughts: On my second build, I was in such a hurry I forgot to attach the adapter bracket for the SSD. Looked down, set SSD on top of DVD, perfect fit! Attached to one side with velcro.

4 out of 5 eggsA tad loud...

Pros: Small...

Cons: Case fan is a bit noisy. Not too bad, but my full server box (Antec Sonata 3) is quieter.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent little case

Pros: It works great, fairly quiet. The case fan might be a touch loud, but I'm using them for workstations so it's not really a concern. Fairly easy to assemble. Small and sleek, looks way better than the dell towers they're replacing.

Cons: It does have a slight cheap feeling to it, but not bad for such an inexpensive case.

Other Thoughts: Another reviewer stated that he couldn't mount an ssd. That is true, there is no 2.5 inch bay, but there is a 3.5 inch hard drive bay. It is underneath the cd drive bay. Three screws and the whole center bracket lifts up. You can then mount your hard drive on the bottom side and then reattach the bracket.

I've built four of these so far with SSDs using a simple metal 2.5 to 3.5 inch adapter.
