1 out of 5 eggsLow-profile cards won't fit!

Pros: Very compact.

Cons: Too compact - they could have made it 1/4" taller and been able to fit standard low-profile cards. Why they have a knock-out that you can't put a standard low-profile card into is beyond me. DO NOT BUY THIS CASE IF YOU WANT TO USE A LOW-PROFILE CARD!

Other Thoughts: Case has holes on back that wifi antenna (2) could use without drilling. Power supply fan a bit noisy (not suitable for a very quiet room). Side-to-side ventilation

2 out of 5 eggsGreat Until The Power Supply Fan Sounds Like A Jet Engine

Pros: Small Size
Somewhat Easy To Assemble

Cons: Great until the fan starts to wind up like an airplane ready to take off. Doesn't fit half height cards like it should (extends beyond the lid so you can't screw it down. Look for other alternatives that might cost a little more.

2 out of 5 eggsmeh...

Pros: It's small and compact which is nice

Cons: The design is super compact which is nice but it gets very hot and there are no fans. Also it has a single slot for a low profile video card but all low profile video cards won't fit with the top on. They are just a smidge too tall.

Other Thoughts: I would get something more cube like next time to accommodate a "low-profile" video card. Overall good case if all you are doing is motherboard only.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I'm actually not using it as a computer. It's just an enclosure and PSU for an electronics project. For that, it works just fine. It's easy to make changes to the projects and I was able to interface with all the switches, lights, etc. on the front.

Cons: When I first turn it on, the PSU fan sounds like a jet is taking off. It stays like that for a few minutes and then it slowly tapers off to a regular volume.

1 out of 5 eggsBuy it for the case if you need something this small - pick up a good PSU while you're at it

Pros: (this is a 14 month follow-up to my earlier reviews of this case).

Pros:
It's small. That's it. If you don't need to use the "expansion" slot on it, it's a great sized case for something like a network appliance.

Comes with a SATA adapter for laptop CD/DVD drives.

Cons: The included PSU is a festering pile of you-know-what. Apevia won't take ownership of any problems their shoddy part causes.

PSU had died after 14 days of minimal use (less than 5 hours total over a 14 day period), taking out nearly everything inside the build. Only components that miraculously survived was the RAM.

Expansion slot is rather pointless/useless since the case is too small to accommodate even half-height cards.

Other Thoughts: 14 months ago the PSU that came with this case failed spectacularly, taking out nearly everything inside the build. After my last review I called Apevia to see if they'd take ownership of their shoddy product. Instead of getting any help I got the run-around; specifically the person I talked to insisted that their only liabilty was to the PSU. When I pressed, he changed his tune and said that a certified tech would need to examine the build to make sure it was the PSU that killed everything. It just so happens that not only am I an A+ certified tech, I also work alongside three other A+ certified techs whom I showed the build to and did agree that the PSU was at fault. At that point he balked and stone-walled me.

I figured I'd give Apevia some time to think it over. I know they're reading these reviews (see their comments in reviews below). I figured that maybe they'd want to make good on their product self-destructing and taking out almost $300 in components, but since calling them (and my earlier review) I have heard not a peep from them. So much for customer satisfaction, huh?

Since Apevia wasn't willing to do anything I contacted Newegg to see if anything could be done. The CSR I talked to was fantastic! They were willing to take care of the issue and take back the parts but unfortunately I had thrown away the boxes after I did my initial burn-in so they couldn't take the parts back. I can't blame Newegg one bit for that though; without the boxes they can't return them to the manufacturers for replacement either. Lesson learned on my part.

The only components that survived the PSU failure was the 8GB of GSkill RAM. Everything else: the Pentium G620T CPU (it killed one core, memory controller, and the integrated video), the fan on the heatsink, the Asus P8H61-i motherboard, dual-port Intel server NIC, and the OCZ SSD were destroyed. Thankfully Intel replaced the NIC under warranty. Everything else minus the RAM was a total loss. I ended tossing everything else in the garbage since there was no hope of getting any of it repaired or replaced.

Personally I will *NEVER* buy or recommend another Apevia product to anyone I know ever again after what happened and the way Apevia handled all of this. Apevia: sticking your collective heads in the sand doesn't make the issue go away; it just causes lost sales down the road.

If you simply must have a case this small, it's about the only thing out there unfortunately. If even after reading what I wrote here you decide to get this piece of junk, buy either another internal PSU for it, or get an external brick based PSU to power your build. The included PSU is just too much of a hunk of trash to trust your build and your money to. Also, considering Apevia had 14 months to make good on this for me and they chose not to, that speaks more about their commitment to customer satisfaction than anything.

3 out of 5 eggsDon't mean to be negative but...

Pros: Small, compact, comes with decent PSU, room for expansion even in such a small case.

Cons: Why in the world is there a slot for a low profile video card if a low profile card sticks out the top? It works just fine with the cover off, but I want to cover it. I think I'm going to have to make a custom cover for it, or cut the existing one.

Other Thoughts: Everything works in theory. I'm surprised I was able to squeeze as much performance out of a small form factor.

System setup:

ASRock FM2A75M-ITX
A10-5800K
8gb GSkill Ares 1866mhz RAM
WD Scorpio Blue 250gb SATA III 2.5"
PowerColor AX6670 1gb

1 out of 5 eggsAnother Blown Power Supply

Pros: Looks nice.

Cons: The power supply is obviously a major flaw in this case. I purchased mine on 12/30/2010, and exactly one year later the power supply went out with a horrible stench of burnt electronics.

After reading about all the PS problems, I decided to not even bother with trying to get a warranty replacement case from the manufacturer. Instead I've ordered a replacement PS from a company that knows how to build one that lasts longer than 12 months.

If I was Apevia, I would be ashamed to be selling such a low quality product.

Other Thoughts: Do yourself a favor...buy a different product. Or if you do buy it, just realize that you'll have to spend about another $50 bucks at some point in the near future on a replacement PS.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case, but plan around hight and PSU limitations.

Pros: if you plan it right you can fit one heck of a computer in a case just a little bigger than a cigar box. I've got this loaded with a quad core, 8g of ram and a Blu-Ray drive (slim).
downside, forced to use MoBo embedded ATI HD4250 graphics (the PCIE slot is worthless because even a low profile card is too tall). Also, it does run hot.The a product page states "...needs no extra cooling fan." Maybe if you are putting in one of these embedded atom boards? Even then 250W doesn't seem like much....but when it's sideways in the box with 2 drives practically sitting on it...? There are some trade offs, but something that unassuming looking, and that powerful....Why not?

Cons: Downside 1: the PSU is too weak. Downside 2: forced to use MoBo embedded ATI HD4250 graphics (the PCIE slot is worthless because even a low profile card is too tall). Also, it does run hot.The a product page states "...needs no extra cooling fan." Maybe if you are putting in one of these embedded atom boards? Even then 250W doesn't seem like much....but when it's sideways in the box with 2 drives practically sitting on it...? But if the pciex16 is a problem there is the x-fit 200 which takes a 5.25 drive and has room for a slim card.

Other Thoughts: as of 10/21/11 I've built 8 of these. Folks seem to like them.
Athena makes a 350 watt TFX PSU (Athena Power AP-MFATX35P8) that fits with a very small tweak. I just moved on to the i5 2500k and the i7 2600k. While I am not concerned with overclocking ......the k series have the Intel 3000 hd graphics on the chip where as the 2500 and 2600 have the 2000 hd. (the 3000 hd. With this case (unusable pciex16) you would want the best onboard graphics you can find. This is why I moved over to the i series CPU and the z68 MoBo) With the i series the z68 chipset on the MOBO is a must (using the AS Rock Z68M-ITX/HT.) . It combines some of the clocking ability of the 'P' chipset (P67) with the graphics of the 'H' chipset (H67). The p chipset DOES NOT support onboard graphics. The complete system power draw with the i5 and i7 k models is remarkably similar (just slightly over 310watts using hd 3000 onboard graphics and 8 gigs of 1600 ram). A 300 watt PSU starved them at load to BSOD....was no

2 out of 5 eggsClose but no cigar

Pros: The case is sturdy. It seems to be well made. Pretty easy to install components but an expected tight fit so plan ahead.

Cons: Unfortunatly the power supply is very loud for what I expected for a mini itx case. I mean this thing is louder than some of my tower PCs. Also the case gets so hot from the power supply. It over heats inside and the case itself gets pretty hot. A deal breaker for me. The expansion slot is not good enough. It's really hard to find a card that would fit that would perform well enough for HTPC purposes.

Other Thoughts: I have had a few Apevia cases and they were great. The idea of this case I love but it seems like they stopped at about 80% of the design process. The PSU is really loud, it gets really hot in the case and the expansion slot is not quite good enough.
