2 out of 5 eggsCute but beware

Pros: Small and Compact, pretty LED

Cons: Well my fault but plan on getting a small vid card for this case. I had to make optimization to make a gtx960 fit. Part Picker said that the 500 W power supply(included w/ case) would work, it didn't power the 960 w/ a micro ATX motherboard. My costly mistake that I'm sure a more tech savvy person would have planned on.

Other Thoughts: If I ever build another system I'll look for others to lay the groundwork. This computer build started out to be a dream but instead turned to a nightmare. Would be nice if Apevia would warn about full sized card not working.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: carry handle, just enough space, good supplied PSU with a perfect number of connectors, terrific looking case, decent air flow, the motherboard tray is a wonderful feature. The external 3.5 inch drives mounted in a 'saddle bag' configuration is wonderful . The design of the case is such that you can put in full size graphics cards onto the motherboard without pulling the tray (a little tricky for the inboard card) and you can even install a crossfire connector with the tray and cards installed (all you have to do is remove 3 screws to take out the power supply and you don't need to remove any connectors), although the cut out for the expansion slots could be a millimeter taller so it wouldn't contact the crossfire connector

Cons: could use better airflow, another intake fan on the other side of the case would be good along with a fan for the 'saddle bag' drives, the 80mm fan would look so much better with LED's, exhaust fan is bit on the loud side, but most noticeably, if you are using standard height 3.5 inch form factor hard drives, you are going to have to alter the holes for the internal 3.5 inch for more than 2 of them to be fastened. A larger issue is that you have to use a low profile CPU cooler, if the 5.25 and 3.5 inch 'stack' was moved to the right hand side a little bit and the left hand side girder was altered, a fully height cooler could be used. Also, I received a damaged USB 2.0 header cable, on of the wires was pulled out of the plug

most concerning, the front bezel while held on by tabs, is held on also by one screw, I would feel that 2 or 3 more screws would be a little more secure

a 2.5 inch form factor conversion kit (or kits) included would be very useful

Other Thoughts: a mildly updated version and this would be the best small form factor case by far, even in its could be improved state, it is a terrific little case

1 out of 5 eggsNot great especially for the price

Pros: Space saving design, side panel windows

Cons: Very weak power supply, LCD for monitoring temperature is even cheaper, Case is overall fragile.

Other Thoughts: For me this case was a bad idea, I bought it for the look and it wasn't worth it. I didn't do my research. The PSU has 2 very weak 12v rails and a horrible efficiency rating. After only an hour of use the power supply died. The LCD was a problem as well. The front right mesh on the case was broken upon arrival. If an individual wishes to purchase this case for a build, purchase a better PSU and I recommend using Neweggs advice for deciding on that as well, and be more than careful assembling your build, everything with this case is fragile. I will never purchase a product from Apevia again. Really Hoping that my other components will still function properly, haven't tested my mobo or video card yet and wont know till I get a new and better PSU. Most likely going with the Rosewill ARC 650 or the newer modular version of it.

5 out of 5 eggsstill good after all these years, needs front USB 3

Pros: Price
500w ps

Cons: needs USB 3.0 not 1394 on front

Other Thoughts: I'm hoping Apevia will update the front panel with USB 3 otherwise I can't complain about the case for this price. I've been using these for years now and other than a bad power supply here and there they really are a value. Love the small footprint.

And one other suggestion, instead of the Hard drive temp probe I suggest relabeling to GPU. I only use SSD's now and now attach the HDD probe to our Quadro cards. Not that it is really needed but I bet many others are going SSD now. We use these in a tool and die shop.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Cube

Pros: Great visual
included CPU and HDD temp monitor
carrying handle
low cost included PSU

Cons: Flimsy
cheap chassis and front bezel
cable management is... tough

Other Thoughts: First opened the case it felt rather flimsy. After the build was finished it was a lot better.

CPU and HDD temp monitor are pretty cool, though I strapped the HDD monitor to my GPU.

The bottom 5.25 Dimm slot is really tight, had to be a little more forceful then I wanted while installing my DVD drive, wasn't enough to break anything, just a little tight.

It has quite a bit of space for a much larger graphics then I currently am using.

USB ports work great, but the front side audio cable is about 3 inches too short, making the connection to the back of your mother board is tough and puts some stress on the clip.

The power supply sits so that if the wiring that comes out of the back left of it are directly in the middle of the machine. Annoying slightly, but had to do some tricky cable management to make it look better then a rats nest.

Had a problem with the original heat monitor, but Apeviahad me send the piece instead of the whole case, made me pretty happy to hear since I put about an hour and a half installing my gear and tying cables up.

The air flow is great. Plenty of breathing ports cleverly hidden in the front and the dual fans that come with it use 4 prong/Molex connectors and don't connect to your Motherboard.

5 out of 5 eggsNeato.

Pros: Adequate power supply, doesn't run hot or terribly loud. Fits a GTX 660ti just fine. Was expecting a struggle to fit everything in neatly on build-day, everything came together with ease,

Cons: Not much room for beautiful cable management, but it is what it is. The handle hasn't broken yet, but i'm still not sure how much i trust it.

2 out of 5 eggsBad airflow

Pros: I bought the case because it fit in a very specific kind of space. For that, it fit very well. It's small, and the carrying handle is sturdy enough to actually use. I used it quite often when I used to go over to a friend's house for gaming.

Cons: 1) I built this computer for gaming. It's got an EVGA GeForce GTX 460 SLI card (full length) in it. With that card, airflow is horrible. It's bad enough that my fans have to run at almost 5000 RPM to keep up with the heat. I no longer game very much, but I do use resource heavy programs, like PhotoShop and Premiere Pro. Any time I'm in these programs, all of the fans are running full speed.
2) The grills on the front are incredibly flimsy. I bumped one once while I was working on the computer, and one end of it popped out.
3) The backlight on the LED display stopped working after a couple months. The display still works, but I can't ever read it easily.
4) The motherboard tray is flimsy and does not fit as well as I had expected once it's loaded up.

Other Thoughts: I bought the case for a gaming computer that I was putting together. The handle works nicely for toting it around, but the little amount of space inside the case is not enough for good airflow. This is not a good case for any kind of application that requires a dedicated video card, be it gaming or media production. I imagine that if all I did was use the onboard video, and do nothing more than watch movies and surf the web, it would probably be ok.

4 out of 5 eggsHardest, most rewarding, build ive ever done

Pros: Visually looks good.
Temp read out is very nice to have.
Seems to move a good amount of air and keeps inside cool.
Pull out motherbaord tray really nice, would have rathered had top part be able to come undone though

Cons: Flimsy metal.
Psu is junk.
Not the best layout inside for newer parts(requires modifcation of case).
Little overpriced in my opnion.
Poor quaitly control

Other Thoughts: Probably would give this a 3.5 if I could. Not beacuse it was hard, because I knew it would be, but rather for the quaitly of the case. I wanted to pack as much as I could in this tiny little tower and it turned to be awesome. Wanted it to be a awesome little gaming computer that was small and it turned out great. However it required a lot of modification to the case. Had to drill several holes just to be able to plug in hardware. The metal is a little to flimsy for my taste for the price I paid for it. Some screws were not milled correctly.
Yeah the psu is junk but you should never ever use a psu that comes with a case unless you're building the computer with low end parts for checking email or something to that nature. This build was so frustrating and took me 3 days to do(doing it properly and making it look good).

For others wanting to build in this make sure you have a high knowledge of building this is not for beginners. Also really important when picking out parts the gpu can not exceed 267mm in length and the cpu cooler cant exceed 76mm in heigth.

My build:
Seasonic 620 watt atx psu
Asrock Pro4 1150 Z87
8gb Gskill
Nvidia GTX 660
WD Black 500gb
Adata 64gb ssd
Creative xtreme gamer sound card
Cpu cooler Noctura NH-l9i
Intel i5 haswell 4670

4 out of 5 eggsGood, but...

Pros: Small/Portable
Drive space
Front I/O
Carrying handle
Motherboard tray slides out for assembly
Plexi on 3 sides, can put fun lights inside to show off the goodies

Cons: 1 - The power supply that ships with the case is pretty weak. The wattage *level* is fine, but the output is flaky. When the CPU/GPU/HDDs all rev up to full power the PS overheats and dies. I will have to buy a new, stronger PS.

2 - Airflow - Although the computer does not overheat under normal operating conditions, I do feel like the airflow of the case could have been designed just a bit differently.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a computer case that can be hauled around for LAN parties or just taking over to a friend's place for gaming, this case is pretty good. The handle is pretty strong, although I haven't tried slinging my computer around. The motherboard tray slides out so that you can assemble the parts fairly easliy.
