3 out of 5 eggsThese brackets are stupid

Pros: Tiny, comes with a PSU.

Cons: The optical disk drive mounting bracket is too big. Mounting a 2.5" SSD underneath makes cable management very difficult. Smash everything together. If the optical disc drive mounting bracket was slim instead, everything would fit. The 3.5" could mount underneath it too.

The HDD mounting bracket goes on the wrong way, the stock power cable doesn't reach when using an SSD in conjunction. Mounting it backwards works though, uses 2/4 mounting screws just be careful of cables stopping your CPU fan.

This case is a lot better when you just pull out the ODD mounting bracket and mount the HDD there. Nice ventilation just above the CPU instead of the little oven they designed.

Other Thoughts: I didn't like the temperatures or bothering to mount an awful 60mm fan against the PSU. Mounted a 120mm fan above the CPU where the HDD is supposed to be. Everything runs much cooler now! 80mm fan would work too but 120mm fans are cheap so why not?

Mounted a 120mm PWM fan ARCTIC F12 PWM Fluid Dynamic Bearing Case Fan, 120mm PWM Speed Control, 74CFM at 22dBA

For the price, it's ok. I'd rather buy a silverstone HTPC for twice the price at the same size.

Who knows how good this PSU is either? Before mounting my fan HOT air comes out of that PSU, after mounting that 120mm it's a cool breeze.

ASROCK ITX mobo with a g3258 and 2x4gb mushkin DDR3. With aggressive cooling you could even fit a low-profile graphics card in this case. Just be prepared to drill some fan mounts.

4 out of 5 eggsA bit too small

Pros: Small form factor. Attractive outside.

Cons: First off, if you want a DVD drive to fit in here, it will. I don't suggest it though. There is a bracket for it, but personally if the person I made this for didn't want a DVD drive, I wouldn't have put it in. The front cables barely make there way around the interior of the case depending where they go on the motherboard. You are better off with an external DVD/BluRay and ditch the internal drive. Connectors have almost no room either. I've built hundreds upon hundreds and although it wasn't a tough build, it was slightly frustrating.

There is really no air flow either. Don't make this a gaming rig. I put a lowly i3 in it with stock cooler.

Cable management is terrible too. You have to route the cables all over as stated above depending on your board.

Other Thoughts: I thought I've seen all Micro ITX power supplies. I have 5 spares, all different sizes. The one that came in this case is a new size. Much smaller. Get a low profile cooler too, it will help. Fanless would be the best route because of the cable management all over the map. Again, my board will probably be different then others.

I don't fault this case for anything in the end. If you want a small form factor, this works. Just be cautious of your build and components.

2 out of 5 eggsGood case, bad PSU

Pros: Case worked well with what I need, no complaints

Cons: PSU dead, not working.

Other Thoughts: Bought for ITX based system, the case and PSU came together. MB lights will flicker one time on board, and when I unplug PSU, I hear a high pitch whistle drop in tone from PSU.

Manufacturer Response:

You can do an RMA through us for the power supply to get an exchange on the PSU if you are still under our warranty period. You can contact Apevia's customer service at service@apevia.com or call at (909) 718-0789. We try to reply to all calls and e-mails as soon as we can.

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).
