4 out of 5 eggsAPEVIA X-QPACK2-BL Micro Atx Case

Pros: -Looks like a radio. Much better in real than the web site pictures.
-Came with a power supply.

Cons: -Cheap plastic grill on the front very fragile.
Pay attention when you carry the case .
-Couldn't fit a Strix 970 because of the PSU holder it was blocking the Direct CU II cooler.

3 out of 5 eggsLooks Great Didn't Get to Use It :(

Pros: Always loved this case and wanted one. Just love the idea of it.

Cons: Shipped with a broken fan and I took too long to try and build with it (passed RMA period).

Other Thoughts: Once I got to trying a build I realized other parts were broken (not related to the case) and never got to use it. Still hopeful, even with broken fan and would love to try and use in the future. REMINDER: inspect your purchases even if you don't use them right away.

2 out of 5 eggsNEWEGG... HEAR ME! PLEASE READ! EXTREMELY CHEAP CASE!

Pros: Looks kind of cool, great idea!

Cons: Oh Man.. where to begin. First off, dont be that guy (me) that reads the poor reviews and says "it wont happen to me" because with this case it will...

Ive been building computers for 10 years, and this is BY FAR the worst case ive ever used.
- Motherboard tray is extremely flimsy and cheap
- Back panel will BEND with a breeze; miserable
- From bezel has 2 screws in the middle of the inside that you have to scratch the heck out of your hand to reach, plus the 4 clips. And then you cant pull off the bezel without bringing all the wires with it.
- Front handle is attached with screws holding washers, holding extremely cheap springs, dont use it.
- The entire inside feels like its made of aluminum foil, horribly cheap.
- Fans did not illuminate as they were supposed to (small issue... cheap to replace.. but still...)
- Would have been SO much better with a PSU with removable cords (SO MANY CORDS!)

All in all, the case kind of worked. I lifted the unit up by the spring loaded handle and it immediately broke, and i had to take the whole thing apart to fix. The USB and Firewire (really?) on the front were bent so they are at an 85 degree angle instead of flush #cheap.

This case for $100? HAHAHA. Not worth it. Move on.

Other Thoughts: Use reputable brands like Thermaltake, or Cooler Master. Ive use rosewill cases and they are inexpensive, but also good!

3 out of 5 eggsLooks good, made in china.

Pros: Looks good, compact and could fit a full size GPU with some case modification.

Cons: Thin Aluminum made this very easy to bend, when you don't want to. Front panel was already bent when I got it so it will never fit flush with the outer case shell. The front panel has 2 screws that need to be removed in order to take it off. These screws are located at almost center of the inside of the case, so if you already have a Mobo in it, good luck removing the front panel.

You need to remove the power supply to insert the graphics card because the back bracket where the GPU slots are, requires you to remove screws, that are under the PSU. The front panel's two speaker and mic jacks do not work.

A few other issues but don't care to continue.

Other Thoughts: Its a good case, if it was cheaper. The front handle will work for carrying as long as you do not put to much weight in it, at about 10 pounds, it started to bend the front panel.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat a great little case.

Pros: Nice size for sitting on the desk or entertainment center. I've had this case since 2007 and it has been "modded" at least 3 times. I had to cut the inside to fit a full size vid card (3gig), I cut the cover to accommodate a liquid cooling unit for the CPU as the cooler fan was way too noisy. Some reviews badmouth the carry handle...it's gave me great service for years but I wouldn't swing it by the handle!

Cons: I have no cons for this case

Other Thoughts: Like I said, it's a great little case. I will be getting another one for a new build for my nephew.

3 out of 5 eggsBE CAREFUL when selecting this case

Pros: Compact, generally well crafted, nice features and components for the price

Cons: Not compatible with ATX/EPS 12V 8 pins boards (included power supply). Some screw holes for drives are misaligned. If you plan on putting a PCIe card (video), you'll have a fun time trying to screw the card in its slot as there's a metal plate right over that slot (riveted, can't be moved).

Other Thoughts: Design is generally good, but there are obvious flaws and the included PSU is simply not compatible with some of the more recent boards which makes it not such a good deal in the end...

Would not have bought it if I knew...

1 out of 5 eggsPretty face, but no substance.

Pros: Pretty face. Removable motherboard tray. Lots of storage space.

Cons: It's so lightweight that I'm afraid I'll wad it up just by touching it. For a mini ATX this is a big box and I was truly surprised just how big it is - think small microwave or very big toaster oven. While this would normally be a really good thing in my mind, this case is so big that it feels like it's going to fall apart. You know how a small corrugated box can be super rigid, but if you scale that same box up 20 times, with the same thickness of cardboard it becomes very, very flexible hard to work on with warping something.

I've been building computers since 1986, all sizes and all types and in that time I bought a couple cases that were not outstanding. It happens. But this one is a joke.

Far to many moving parts. That's one of the reason that the case is so flexible. pulling the motherboard tray up, I saw the entire back-plane flexing and bending - and it slid out without a catch.

This is advertised as being a portable computer case that you can pick up by the handle that's spring loaded on the face of the case. If you do, it's my opinion that you'll be rebuilding the computer. That handle is retained with just a couple eclips that were barely hanging on in my case. It is also mounted in the plastic face, not in the metal behind it.

Absolutely plan on changing the power supply. I haven't seen a PS this lightweight since I had a Commodore 64.

Bottom line is this, if you are building a computer that has a lot of pretty parts and lights you want to show off and it's never going to be moved, perhaps you can get by with it, it might be OK.

If they had used this thickness steel instead of aluminum it would have made a nice case. Sadly they didn't do that.

If they had skipped the power supply entirely it could be a bit cheaper. But if they spent $2 on the supply instead.

Other Thoughts: I'm sending it back. It wasn't cheap, and shipping it back won't be cheap due to the size, but I'm not going to use it. I'm afraid it would collapse.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat case

Pros: it looks cool and its small. The mb tray made my first build much more enjoyable. and i dont understand why everyone keeps calling it flimsy. your a moron if you break this case. it was my first build and i didnt break it. and the stock fans are quiet and keep it cool. but im switching them out anyways for some much more powerful fans since i dont run a/c

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: i recommend the scythe big shuriken 2 heatsink and fan because it fits very well in this case and seems to keep the processor cool.

2 out of 5 eggsNot Impressed

Pros: SFF Case, good for a simple build, but hard to fit anything

Cons: Not very durable, screws strip out easily, front mesh is very fragile, and MB tray is flimsy.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't use this case for a gaming build for sure.
If you plan on doing a nice build, and want a cube case, i would look into a different case because IMO this case is not worth it for a quality build, especially for 100 dollars
