4 out of 5 eggsDecent little lan box

Pros: Compact, portable, decent air flow, nice looking

Cons: Small (it is a micro), internal frame needs some cutting to make even low form factor fits, some parts are kind of flimsy ie: most of it the mobo tray, the case, the handle

Other Thoughts: Bought this micro as a LAN box and PC for my son, went fairly low budget w/ the biostar A75, AMD 3850 Llano coupled with the Radeon HD 6670. Had to chop some of the internal framework and replace passive cooler with a Zalman fan to make it fit. 8gb RAM and splurged on the OCZ SSD 120gb went with a refurb to save $. THis little box is tight, light and can handle most anything.

3 out of 5 eggsA decent Case

Pros: This case looks good with green led fans. The size allows for use in small spaces. The case has pretty good air flow.

Cons: As others have said, This case is constructed from lightweight alluminum. It makes the case very light, but not too sturdy. I did a lot of modifying to this case. The thin metal was easy to drill and cut. I added an extra case fan and used a low-profile CPU cooler with a bigger more powerful fan than normal. I did not bother to use the PSU that was provided. I used a fully modular Silverstone PSU with short cables. I would not recommend carrying this case around a lot.

Other Thoughts: I put an Asus Maximus MB with a 2700K CPU in this case. I have this system OC'd @ 4.3 GHz staying under 70c at full load.

4 out of 5 eggsSo far, so good

Pros: It's small, but that's the point. I didn't run into any major issues installing the hardware. Just give yourself a little more time than with a normal sized case, and you'll be fine.

Cons: - The metal is a little flimsy, like other reviewers said. I didn't find that I needed to bend things back into place, but if you try to jam it or do things really fast, then you may bend things out of place.
- Power button came loose, and I needed to glue it back.

Other Thoughts: I can't say much for portability because I haven't moved it all that much. I needed more desk space, and this fit into one of my desk compartments well.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case, lousy power supply

Pros: I built two of these a couple of years ago, one for myself and one for a friend.

I really like the case. It's easy to work on; it has a slide out motherboard tray, and the hard drive mounts are all on the perimeter. The case fan is very quiet. These cases are also transportable, with a carry handle that slides out the front. The design is also really good for cooling, because the power supply is above the video card and so pulls heat off of it. Overall, the case design is quite good.

Cons: However, both power supplies are now dead. I also think the power ratings are optimistic if not outright false.

I replaced both power supplies with FSP Blue Storm, which fit perfectly and are great power supplies. They have actually tested to 100% capacity in professional reviews.

Other Thoughts: So, in summary, I love the case, but the power supplies are pretty disposable.

2 out of 5 eggsFlimsy, difficult, and poorly machined

Pros: Looks good (it's hard to find another green MicroATX case), fits extremely well as a little HTPC/gaming PC connected to our entertainment system

Cons: This is one of the most difficult cases I've ever owned due to the poor build quality.

The screw holes in the aluminum are extremely thin and the threading was incorrect on a few of them. Even while being careful, I managed to cross-thread the first screw holding the vertical hard drive cage to the main case structure. Upon closer inspection, the second screw hole was machined so poorly that there was no way to use it without creating another cross-threaded situation. I ended up cutting the screw and discarding the hard drive cage. One of the exterior cover screw holes is also threaded poorly.

The front of the case is fragile. I barely bumped the metal mesh on the left front of the case and it fell out. Taking the front faceplate off is a nightmare. The handle spring was broken on arrival. The power button is barely hanging on.

I have no idea how you would use this as a portable gaming solution. I'm afraid it will break when I touch it. I can't imagine moving it.

Other Thoughts: Two issues that I should have investigated more carefully prior to buying the case:

1) Verify that your video card power connector position is accessible. I bought a card (XFX Radeon 6870) that fit length-wise, but the power connectors on top of the card were covered up by the aluminum structure of the tray over the motherboard. I had to use a sheet metal cutter to clear a path for the power connectors.

2) Check the power supply connectors to be sure that it can power your video card. The included power supply did not have the two 6-pin connectors that I needed (my fault for not reading the specs more closely).

The added cost of a decent new power supply was probably worth it, but I would have hoped for more from a portable gaming case. The only reason to buy this is if you absolutely must have a green MicroATX case. Trust me, you do not need the difficulties that come along with it.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Case

Pros: Nice layout, very compact. Love the removable MB tray and carry handle.

Cons: Flimsy thin sheet metal easily bent out of shape, but by the same token easily bent back into shape. Be careful of CPU HS/fan height.

Other Thoughts: Bought this as a project build with my grandson (12 years old). He loved the lime green color and we had a great time assembling the PC. He couldn't wait to tell his friends and teacher. I patted him on the head and said, "Welcome to Geekdom, son."

5 out of 5 eggsYou want this case

Pros: Plenty of room for a full sized video card, easy cable management, plenty of interfaces on the front, and great air flow.

Cons: The power button sticks sometimes and the fans that come with it are pretty loud.

4 out of 5 eggsVery decent case for portability

Pros: Very light-weight, portable, and small. Aluminum helps dissipate heat much better than a steel case. Enough room even for my 8800GT card, although tight.

Cons: Same as others posted, limited space above CPU for add-on cooler, my power button fell off somewhere, and the spring that retracts the handle back sprung loose on one side, so it doesn't retract back in all the way.
The temperature only reads in Celsius and can't be changed to Fahrenheit, although that's not a big deal.

Other Thoughts: I bought this due to it's size and the fact it has a 500W PSU. The PSU is still running fine, although I'd highly recommend replacing it with a more reliable 80+ one.
I've owned this for a little over a year now and I really like it despite the minor cons listed above.

It IS flemsy, etc. but it's sturdy enough and kept lightweight enough to be practical. If you want an armored case, then get a steel one and break your back carrying it around. But if you're willing to put forth a little more effort wiring it all in and not looking for a super sturdy case, this one has served me well and continues to do so. I'd gladly buy this again if making a computer that doesn't require high-end performance builds since cooling isn't great for high-wattage processors and large graphics cards.

Manufacturer Response:

You can change the display from Celsius to Fahrenheit by flipping a small black switch on the back of the gauge.

2 out of 5 eggsLooks okay, pretty cheap though

Pros: It looks nice. Not very many options for a small form factor, this one is relatively affordable. Alternative was one from Lian Li, but its tough to tell what will fit in one of those.

Pretty easy to work with, the case is well designed at least.

Cons: The build quality is cheap, it gets 2 stars for me being unable to mount my motherboard securely. Two of the standoffs under the motherboard aren't tapped all the way through, so the screws only go halfway in.

Obviously I can get shorter screws, but why do I need to do this.

4 out of 5 eggsgaming look but psu took

Pros: very nice and stylish ! light weigh and roomy!

Cons: psu is very much a light duty as in amps! you need some amp to power a buget gpu that takes the four pin power . and this couldnt cut it with a 9600 gt !

Other Thoughts: only 18 amps on rail two and 16 on rail one theres a diff model psu than in the picture but its okay with a 5450 on the tiny biostar g31 board.....
