3 out of 5 eggsDecent for moving

Pros: The removable motherboard tray solves many assembly and post-assembly/upgrade issues. Apevia could use Version 3 with a bit more attention to SSD possibilities without removing any currently-available drive-spaces - there's plenty of room for another set of screw-holes!

This case is great for the use-of-space, though. I'd definitely recommend it for cube-style uses.

Cons: Flimsy cover-material will show dings. In a way, if they'd used plain aluminum foil, that'd be easier to replace. For a case that comes with a handle - obviously with mobility in mind - the all-metal sides will eventually show nicks and dings. I have no idea what the Window Sides would be like - will they eventually pop out? Crack?

Other Thoughts: I will continue to use this for users that want/need cubes with limited HDD (3 or less) needs. I suspect that letting it sit in a media-stand or tucked on a bookcase next to the work-desk will give the thin side metals a better lifespan than using that handle.

3 out of 5 eggsNice but screws spilled inside

Pros: Price and features. 500w PS. temp LCD's, attractive, cooling fans....

Cons: cheap packaging for hardware. Deserves 5 eggs but this one made me mad all because of a little plastic bag.

Other Thoughts: I've bought at least a dozen of these for our shop over recent years. This one came with the little plastic bag of screws emptied out into the whole thing. What a mess. I could have RMA'd but instead spent a half hour taking off the front panel and even removed the PS to shake every last screw free. Apevia, please consider upgrading the packaging.

I agree these cases are made of light weight alum but when they are buttoned up they are quite sturdy and for the price you can't beat it.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Power supply seems good, also note, it comes with 4 sata connectors, not 2 as the Apevia website shows.
Motherboard mounted nicely on the removable Tray.
Box seems quite sturdy, plenty of room inside, and easy cable management.
Only 2 Fans, but they keep it very cool. I have an A10 APU with the stock fan, and its barely going over 31c at idle at the bottom of the heatsink. Very impressed there.

Cons: LCD display,the blue backlight flickers now and again, sometimes stays off, and sometimes on, but the display itself is fine.

Other Thoughts: I would certainly buy again.
I can see potential problems for anyone putting in a graphics card or a large CPU fan, although there is clearance, you could have cable and cooling problems.
Second time I have used Apevia for a budget build, and have not been disappointed.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat little box

Pros: The motherboard tray slides out, making it really easy to install the mb. there's a detachable metal tray for the HD. I like that it has a heat sensor with led read out on the front. I'm currently using two of these in an esxi whitebox cluster, works beautifully.

Cons: I bought two of these, and on one the temp led was non-functional. I hate it when stuff shows up broke...just a drag getting it rma'd for a broken led. Unfortunately I'll have to go through the manufacturer to get it replaced as I didn't even unbox the thing for over 30 days after I purchased.

4 out of 5 eggsLooks good, works good

Pros: Looks great and worked as advertised. Runs dead quiet.

Cons: The 3.5" slot is a bit tight (narrow) and as others have mentioned the metal is a bit thin. But it sits on a desk not a bomb range.

Other Thoughts: I had no issues with the power supply. Running a Sandy Bridge I5 with 3 drives and discrete video.

2 out of 5 eggsLook elsewhere!

Pros: Nice looking case.

Cons: Power Supply would not work with my new Asus mobo. Luckily I had a spare PS I could use. 2nd day I had it the cheap little black screen on the left side came unglued and loose. I had to take super glue to it....twice since then.

Other Thoughts: Please, please....rethink your case and spend some more money for a better case. I wish I had!

1 out of 5 eggsRight Design Wrong Components

Pros: Compact Size, Temp Display, Front Panel Design and Functionality, Use of space internally.

Cons: Power supply burned out after a year, litterally caught fire. I checked with the mfg and there are no recalls for the pwr supply. Front USB ports became unusable. The front venting screen is glued on loosely. The front facia cannot be removed.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat product

Pros: EXTREMELY well ventilated, have an AMD Athlon II x4 640 overclocked to 3.4Ghz with stock fan,(with separate power supply), is also capable of handling the heat coming from an overclocked GTX 460 all temps stay under 60c at full load

Cons: power supply completely failed(-1 star) after 3 days of expected performance, setup at the time was athlon 640 (3.0Ghz), 6GB DDR3 1333, seagate sata 500GB 7200rpm, samsung DVD-RW sata, geforce GT 430 (non oem 6 pin), rosewill PCI wifi-n card

I feel that this line power supply is not bad, but i just got a bad egg

Other Thoughts: Built this to sell to my customers, did not disappoint, I was expecting to build a cheap upper end workstation with a low end GPU(because of space restrictions) but i was not expecting my GTX 460 SOC to fit, let alone get good enough ventilation, though i didn't try that until the stock psu failed and had to switch it out for my personal one, then i overclocked the processor to 3.6Ghz and 3.8Ghz for S&G. It would boot but ran 55c at idle

Many people think that the case metal is too thin, but i fell that is not that the metal is too thin but that the sheet that makes up the single piece 3-sided "side access panel" has no support, once the panel is secured to the case it feels just as sturdy as my other 3 mainstream desktops

Manufacturer Response:

You can do an RMA through us for the power supply to get an exchange on the PSU if you are still under our warranty period. You can contact Apevia's customer service at service@apevia.com or call at (909) 718-0789. We try to reply to all calls and e-mails as soon as we can.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case for a niche

Pros: Stays cool even under heavy loads. Very portable - front handle is surprisingly secure. Can still fit a decent size video card. Internal rails were great for ziptie cable management. Served me well for 3 years.

Cons: By all reviews the Power Supply is prone to shorts that can fry your motherboard so I tossed in a Cooler Master supply without ever connecting it. Given that the company includes the cost of the PS in the case price I feel this is a legitimate complaint.

Front vent covers both broke off within 6 months and were never able to remount. Screws also were cheap and stripped very easily.

With a GeForce 250 GTS the SPDIF cable ended up almost touching the fan in the PSU due to space issues.

Other Thoughts: I just converted my little gaming lanbox into a full size case after 3 years. This case did serve well but the build quality is a bit low. Vent covers fell out, the temp monitors never displayed correctly, it was a very tight fit for a gaming rig.

If you do need something small or portable then I'll highly recommend. If you do not then there are much better cases on the market.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome.

Pros: I wanted a case that was shaped like a cube, and this is pretty close! Looks, good, the fans are quiet, and the trey to slide out the mobo is epic. No more cutting your hands on sharp edges! The handle works great, and I have no fear picking the thing up to move around.

Cons: Metal is a bit thin, so it is easy to dent it.

Other Thoughts: Good case, but if you are looking for durable, then you will want to go with something more.
