5 out of 5 eggsOne of The Best

Pros: * Has excellent airflow with a high speed (50+ cfm) 120 mm input fan on the back.
* Can fit a Zalman 8700 with most motherboards (best hsf for small cases, I think)
* Easy to order replacement parts from Apevia
* Pretty good power supply - it has powered my quad core setup for nearly three years without a problem (though I am replacing it soon as capacitor aging is a problem). The power supply included with this case is a step above some of the others that I have seen included with micro atx cases (if it comes with one at all).
* Solidly built - I have never had problems with carrying it around even if it was fully loaded with 3 HDs

Cons: * Hard to find a good heat sink that will fit the case
* Spring could possibly detach from
* It's a micro atx case so it is hard to work in, particularly if you have large hands
* The 80 mm fan in the front is a bit redundant

Other Thoughts: I originally purchased my case in August 2007. Since I purchased it, I have been running a quad core setup (first a q6600 then a q9550), 3 hard drives, and a power hungry video card (first 7900 then 9600). I also have a couple of cold cathode tubes and a 133 cfm 120 mm fan on the back (this is overkill, but it is great for impressing friends). My case still looks "almost" as good as it did the day that I first purchased it (this is despite hauling it around quite a bit). I tried a few other Micro atx cases prior to this one, but none of them had the right combination of airflow and component support. This is a performance micro atx case. Hats off to Apevia - this case works and it works well, and I intend on keeping this case until the next generation of qpacks comes out.... Whenever that is.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: My case arrived in good shape ad entact.

Cons: Extremely cramped quarters making for bad airflow once everything is installed. 13 Months to the date power supply went POW BANG POOF SIZZLE this mourning!!!!! I hoe it did not fry the mother board. Highly disappointed. Not worth buying another pwr supply for.

Other Thoughts: Time to hunt for different case.

3 out of 5 eggsNot a gamer's case

Pros: -Size allows for a good media center machine.

-Front panel actually provides useful temp. info depending on where you've mounted your probes.

-Very light weight, would be well suited to travel with / ship.

Cons: -Has lots of air flow / heat issues and really needs more exhaust (top fan preferred for this model!). Granted the end user could solve this by modding the case and attaching a large exhaust fan to the top.

-As other reviewers have stated, your case will most likely not arrive intact. Mine had a few bumps and the top of the outer case was dented. I was able to fix this with a rubber mallet. The shipping box was really just the in store stock box. Newegg, this needs to be packed in more than just the production box!!!

Other Thoughts: In my opinion, this case isn't worth the 100 bucks. If you're building a tricked out gaming rig. Seek another case. (I've gone with an Antec 902 myself and will be using this case as a media center PC for a later build...).

3 out of 5 eggsYou Feel Lucky?

Pros: Plexi is protected in and out with film. Carry handle is workable. Decent stance and appeal. Will buy for these reasons again.

Cons: Shipping this item is a roll of the dice. Packaging is convenient for going to a box store and putting it in your buggy. But be careful putting it in the vehicle, it's that flimsy. To imagine a conveyor system distributing this package and being stacked and moved multiple times, wow.

Other Thoughts: As a whole, if you are able to use power supply, it's a good deal. Individual components of the case are mid grade. Don't be surprised of a corner being dented.

2 out of 5 eggsNot so good

Pros: The PSU is adequate for what can be crammed in this case.
Looks pretty cool.
Decent price.

Cons: Removable motherboard tray is very flimsy - Actually the case in general is very flimsy.
Not enough space for larger video cards, especially if power connectors are side mounted. Had to cut away frame with a dremel.
Bad airflow. Left side of case where PSU and expansion cards sit has no intake/exhaust.

Other Thoughts: Can't comment on the carrying handle on the front, as I never trusted the construction enough to risk the safety of my components. Might be an OK case for a lower end system where cooling is not needed as much

5 out of 5 eggsLike it...

Pros: The small size and overall asthetics of the case are great. This was my 1st micro ATX build and it went much smoother than I anticipated. Its a quality case with a good power supply. I was worried about putting in 2 HDDs, but the fans seem to be moving a good amount of air through that case keeping everthing reasonably cool (that's with a 95W CPU). PSU has 2 SATA and a six pin for a graphics card.

Cons: 3 pin molex for Power LED threw me off a bit just like the other reviewer, but it was easy to resolve by slicing it into two. Moving the case top on and off is a bit awkward but not a big deal once you get a hang of it.

Other Thoughts: Temp read out looks cool.

5 out of 5 eggsGood things comes in Small Packages

Pros: + Slide tray provides easy access
+ Fans are silent. The noisiest items are my HDD, DVD drive (while reading), and CPU fan (only on startup)
+ 1x PCI-e 6-pin connection for your GPU card, in case you're wondering.
+ 500W adequate for 1 good GPU and power hungry processor. You can forget about SLI or CrossFire. But for a mATX, you should not hope big for such an option. Could be better if it's 80 Plus.
+ Great airflow.

Cons: - Power LED was using a plastic piece with 3 pin holes, for occupying 3 pin spaces. Middle hole does not have connection. My motherboard's Power LED connection have pins adjacent to each other, thus I have to manually cut the connectors and trim them to fit on my motherboard.
- Space constraint for DVD-Blu-ray drives. Don't get one that's too long.
- Wiring things onto the motherboard is a pain. But this was what I expected, so it does not deserve an egg off.
- Wiring hazards everywhere. Tie wires together to reduce clutter and improve airflow.
- Not suggested to have two optical drives. Stick to one. Use the upper slot, and use the lower slot to keep the unused PSU wires.

Other Thoughts: 1) Case makers and mobo makers should consult on the layout of the Power, Reset, HDD LED, Power/Msg LED, and case speaker... and MAKE a mold that deals with all those connections for ease of connecting to the mobo. Gone are the days of manually inserting USB connections pin by pin, or case's front audio connections. Why can't they smarten up and do the same for the rest of them??

2) Camo face plate wasn't what I wanted in the first place. But with a $15 rebate, I concluded that aesthetics was worth the sacrifice. And I actually come to like the looks.

3) You have to tape the temp sensor on the HDD and CPU for the readings to be clear. Scotch tape does the trick. Don't be a bonehead and use duct tape. Oh yes, don't tape the CPU temp sensor on the CPU, but on the heatsink. It's just wrong.

4) Spring handle didn't break. Yet.

5) It's going to be a pain to upgrade (add memory, new GPU card). Know the sacrifices you are taking when using a small case like this.

6) Worth th

4 out of 5 eggsX-QPack 2

Pros: Impressive compact, stylish, and functional design. Removable motherboard tray made setup a breeze. Includes lighted uv blue 120mm fan in 500 watt power supply, and also comes with a blue 120mm rear fan and a 80mm front fan necessary for ventilation.

Cons: Power supply still works but no longer lights up. Spring loaded handle became unsprung and I had to practically dismantle the whole computer just to repair it and the whole system has only been in use for 1 day.

Other Thoughts: Even as popular as Apevia has become, they leave alot of room for improvement when it comes to quality control in my opinion. I would have given it 5 eggs if it wasn't for the power supply light cheezing out and the spring on the handle flying off inside the case within a single day of use. All in all, still the best and coolest looking MicroATX build I've done yet. Here's what the case is wrapped around:

MSI PM8M3-V LGA 775 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Intel Pentium 4 650 Prescott 3.4GHz LGA 775 CPU
WINTEC AMPO 2x1GB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400
HIS Radeon HD 3650 512MB AGP 4X/8X Video Card
Western Digital Caviar SE 300GB IDE Hard Drive
Sony Optiarc Black 16X DVD-ROM
SONY NEC Optiarc Black 18X DVD Burner

Still hard to believe this is all fits in this little case. :D

5 out of 5 eggsApevia Qpack2 w/500w PSU

Pros: Killer case for 85$ after rebate! Love the temp sensors even tho it is reads hotter than the mobo's CPU temp sensor. Assembly was easy-love the slide-out mobo tray. I bought this case to "resurrect an old dell4550 desktop instead of throwing it in the garbage- u know "use and reuse?" I was going to chop the case up since it was getting to hot to be stable.
So after i got over that crazy dream the Qpack2 looked like the best idea for the money plus it comes in a small pkg and a 500watt PSU and takes least amount of space in my bedroom. My Wife loves it despite the CAMO faceplate! And the handle is pretty sturdy.

Cons: Temp sensors came DOA but did light up. 5stars to Apevias cust serv. Norman if mem serves- rocks! He took care of business real quick.
The handle could be a little more sure feeling.
Mobo tray felt a little flimsy-easy to tweak.
Tabs that hold faceplate on are easy to use but dont inspire confidence for longevity.

Other Thoughts: almost bought this cute little case instead
GMC R-2 Toast AZT-GMCR2-OR Orange Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail
but of course it does'nt come with a PSU like the Qpack2 does!!!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case

Pros: Easy to set up, good airflow, looks great. The protective covering over the panels inside and out is a nice touch.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: This is the 3rd one Ive bought. One Ive had running 24/7 as a server for months on end with no issues @ all.
