3 out of 5 eggsDecent Case

Pros: Small, easy to open, good selection of drive bays, full power supply.

Cons: 5.25" bay isn't fully exposed due to the door on the front. I put a Vantec 4x2.5" hot swap enclosure in the 5.25" bay, but none of the drives can be removed. I may take a Dremel and cut out enough of the front of the case to expose the bay, but that's a pain. Also, if you're going to do this, you won't have room for the 3.5" drive in the back due to the large number of SATA cables, but that's to be expected for a small case.

4 out of 5 eggscase works fine. dump the PSU

Pros: Very compact versus what it can hold.
Comfortable pricing leaves funds for replacement PSU

Cons: The PSU is the problem with this case for three reasons: 1) Limited life. 2) potential damage to other components. 3) Obstructs air flow.
The PSU had to be replaced for the above reasons.
Solution is posted below

Other Thoughts: Instead of complaining about the case, one can do what I did:
Disconnect the PSU! Dispose of it (if you want to be cruel to people, post it on a flee market site)!
Get a 160W or a 200W "Pico Power Supply", and a 10A - 20A 12V "Brick" power supply (those come with a 5.5 x 2.1 mm plug).
Drill a hole in the case for the 12V power supply socket. install the Pico power supply on the motherboard, run the 12V socket to the hole you drilled and assemble the components in the case (just remember the power supply and 12V power limits).
Enjoy a quiet and cool running computer (well, you may be short of another $40 - $50 now... versus your first plan, but could have the computer you really wanted.... :-) That is what I ended up with

5 out of 5 eggsStill going strong.

Pros: Durable, tiny, and enough room for most setups.

Cons: No airflow. Needs to have a real fan mounted to be usable.

Other Thoughts: This is a followup to my original review from 2011 on here. Been several years now, and this case has gone through 3 builds and is still going. Even the original PSU is still working fine. Current build is a Core i3 and a Geforce N430GT using a ribbon cable adapter to mount the card on the top of the case, and 8GB of ram. If I could change one thing about this case it'd be to make it 1" taller and wider. This would allow room to fit a graphics card in the case AND crucially, an exhaust fan INSIDE the top of the case instead of ON top of the case where I had to mount it.

1 out of 5 eggs not the best

Pros: Size of a shoe box, works

Cons: No ventilation, no room to move the wires out the way for Optical drive, wiring wasn't great. Hdd didn't fit right

Other Thoughts: I felt like they built the whole thing around a the psu. Had apevia place the psu in a different way then maybe it would be worth putting a optical drive in it. I don't think having a full-sized optical was a good idea either. This was my first build and I am kind of disappointed in the case. I think I might try to find a itx mobo that has a onboard dc output and take the psu out.

1 out of 5 eggsmeh

Pros: price

Cons: heat management nonexistent
the case would be "ok" except heat management is totally absent. there's a tiny exhaust fan on the built-in power supply, but that's it. worse, the 2x40mm and 1x60mm fan locations you see punched in the sheetmetal on the left and right sides are basically unusable because of the position of the power supply. if you're using a stock cpu cooler, there's not enough airflow to keep the cpu within a reasonable range. not a high-end cpu...an atom. and that makes it unusable unless you add fans. which i did, in the vent holes not designed for fans. which makes it louder. so i can't really recommend this case for any build, even a low-power htpc build.

Other Thoughts: ultimately, not really worth the price

4 out of 5 eggsNice Little Case

Pros: The size of a shoebox. Actually smaller; same width, slightly shorter in both other dimensions. Fits in TV stand and blends in with stereo equipment. Perfect for a Media Center PC if you want something that is unobtrusive.

Cons: Lack of ventilation and no place for case fan. i3 3.1Ghz runs a little hot under load (video game running for an extended period) with standard Intel heatsink. But stayed around 50C just using netflix. Heatsink is tight against bottom of DVD, so any upgrade is size constrained.

Other Thoughts: You can fit all the basics in this little box, but nothing else. However, 1 DVD and 1 HD is all most people have anyway and almost everything else is integrated into the motherboard. ASUS makes an ITX MB with HDMI out for the Sandybridge CPUs which handles my video needs. My i3-2100 setup runs well, but is probably the max for this box without significant cooling efforts for which there is almost no room.

1 out of 5 eggsdidnt like it

Pros: combact means too much combact. thats only thing i found.

Cons: as mentioned in the specs..it says 2.5 can be installed. Stil dont know how to attach that in this box.

Manufacturer Response:

The hard drive installation instructions can be found in the user's manual linked below. There are two places that a 2.5" drive can be installed, which are listed in steps 2.2 and 2.3 on page 3 (14 of the PDF document).

2 out of 5 eggs10 pounds of PC in a 5 pound bag...

Pros: It's only an inch bigger than similar cases that require slimline DVD drives and external 60-100W power supplies, but it has a real 250W internal PSU and can accommodate a full-size 5.25" optical drive and a 3.5" HDD as well as a 2.5".

Cons: From a QC perspective, there were several wires on the PSU with cuts in the insulation, but since it didn't get through to the wire I decided not to RMA it. I have another X-FIT case where a PSU wire was completely severed and required PSU replacement. Apevia was very accommodating and the whole process took less than 10 minutes on the phone.

Overall though, the X-FIT-200 is a classic case of squeezing too much into too little space. I'm only using the small OEM CPU cooler that came with the CPU, and the 5.25" optical drive literally rests on top of it, covering about 1/3 of the fan. Between that and the 3.5" HDD which is positioned over the back of the case, there's only about 1/3 of the CPU cooler actually exposed from the top. I imagine this will make for heat issues but we'll see what happens.

In general the tight fit of all the components makes for awkward cable routing and not a lot of room for the case's venting to be effective.

Other Thoughts: There are compact drives purpose-made for mini-computer builds, and if I had it to do over I would have gone with a case that is made to accept that equipment.

I have an X-FIT-100 that, despite being more compact, actually seems roomier because it's made for a 2.5" drive and slimline DVD drive, leaving more airspace around the CPU, more room for intelligent cable routing, and more room not just for the vents to work, but even to (with some creativity) add a few case fans to cool things off.

4 out of 5 eggsWell....

Pros: TINY, but easy to work with, clever design, and enough room for most setups.

Cons: NO possibility of airflow, whatsoever. Even my little atom D525 got way too hot. Idled at 67-70C depending on the day.

Other Thoughts: Don't use it without at least one case fan. Preferably 2 of them. One intake and one on top for exhaust. Even just the exhaust on top dropped my idle to 58-60C showing the problem is obviously lack of airflow. I would say with a fresh air duct to the CPU and/or an intake fan directed at the CPU, I'd see another 5 off those numbers at least.

Just don't use it without fans, and it's a great case for the price IMO.

2 out of 5 eggsSubpar case

Pros: Room for 2.5" HDD in addition to a 3.5" HDD. Just small enough to fit in my entertainment center.

Cons: Most importantly is lack of air flow. It has two "cut outs" for 50mm fans, but they are blocked by the left and right ends of the PSU thus are useless. only airflow comes from small PSU fan. Front fascia is ridiculously thin/flimsy and hence feel extremely cheap. I kept feeling like I was going to break the cheezy thing during the build.

Other Thoughts: If you are planning to run an Atom processor, then you will probably not require much cooling. My rig, however, has a E7300 C2D @ 2.66ghz/65watts being cooled by a GELID Slim Silence CPU fan/heatsink w/Nvidia GF9300 chipset. This got EXTREMELY hot in this case.
