4 out of 5 eggsSolid, simple case with front USB 3.0

Pros: Overall pretty solid case. The look and feel of the case were better than I expected. I like having USB 3.0 ports on the front and the standoffs were already installed.

Cons: There isn't much cable management paths built in but I made do with a little creativity. The included cable ties were nice though!

Other Thoughts: The case came intact without any damage to itself or the box it was packed in. It came with plenty of screws, a few cable ties and decent documentation. It feels pretty well built and not as flimsy as some would have you believe. I have worked with really cheap cases and this definitely a couple notches above the cheapies. My last case was a Rosewell Challenger design from about 5 years ago and I’ve always regarded them as well constructed, well made cases for the price points they hit.

The case came with plenty of screws and screw types for mounting drives, motherboard and expansion cards, some wire ties, the documentation is decent enough and the front IO cables are well constructed with reinforcement near the ends to help them from easily breaking off. They also have small loops on them to help remove them from the motherboard and prevent wires from being pulled out. A nice touch was that the brass standoffs for mounting the motherboard were already installed though it didn’t appear any additional were included. This wasn’t an issue for my build though.

I have no issue with the included fans & they seem to do a decent job of moving air through my build. I like the subtle blue light from the front fan. The indicator lights on the PC front are very easy to see from above in low and normal lighting.
The locking mechanisms for the 5.25 drives and 3.5" drive work fine. I have my two optical drives locked in using them at the top but have the 3.5” drive mounted in the lowest internal bay using the included screws. I have a SSD drive mounted on the very bottom of the case but there are rubberized standoffs there as well if you wanted to place 3.5” mechanical drive.

My only real complaint is that there isn’t much in the way of cable routing or management built into the case. You can’t really run any wiring behind the motherboard as the standoffs sit right off the side of the case and aren’t raised. I made do with my build and used the interior of the case as best I could. The included cable ties were helpful and it would have been much wiser to have used a modular power supply to help cut down on clutter.

Overall I'm pleased with the case and that my components fit in without issue. It makes a nice new home for my gaming rig. My best advice would be to use a modular power supply.

5 out of 5 eggsThe others were right

Pros: Very good cooling with all 4 fans in.
Room for 2 3.5 drives and 1 2.5.
Preinstalled Standoffs.
Great airflow.
Small form factor which fits nice with my current desk setup.
Only 2 5.25 bays (As a picky person, it always bothered me having 4 of these and only using one. They make a ton of 3.5 toys, but few 5.25).
Easy to follow instructions.

Cons: Bottom hard drive hangs suspended. Not a big con, but I worry that it may shake and cause platter problems.
Couldn't find another problem so I'll stick with just the hard drive for now.

Other Thoughts: i3 haswell + nvidia 750 GTX TI.
The thing idles at 30 c and at full load over an hour, hits 50 c for both cards. Hard drives stay at 30-40 c depending on use.
Although my hardware reaches 50c, that is at full load which is difficult to do now-a-days with hardware surpassing gaming (unless you are a hardcore gamer and need 120 fps with sli/crossfire). Considering I am going air and play games/surf the net at minimal load, these temperatures are great.
My previous case had 3 80mm fans and 2 120 fans which were all "strategically" located infront of the hardware, and it still hit 60+c for both my cpu and processor until I went liquid. 50 c is a little high compared to liquid, but very stable for intel/nvidia hardware and for that, being in a microatx case with STOCK cooling, I give this thing a 5 star rating on cooling.

5 out of 5 eggsRosewill LINE-M

Pros: USB 3, small and compact
Decent case for minimal build

Cons: There was a metal part around the back on the side of the Optical drives that made it harder to do cable management. Could of stuck lots of cables out of the way if it wasn't there.
One of the screw stand (preinstalled) did not align with my uATX board

Other Thoughts: I forgot to carefully select the PSU to be on the bottom, it was topside.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Micro-ATX Case

Pros: 4 USB ports up front 2x 3.0 & 2x 2.0 small, good ventilation.
Can fit a good length GPU

Cons: Cable management can be tricky, BUT that's going to be a problem with any small case.

Other Thoughts: My customer was looking for a smaller case than what I normally use, and this little guy did the trick. He was very happy with the small size.

Fits a good size GPU and looked like it might even have room for a T4 cpu cooler.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Bargain

Pros: This case was used for a MSI/AMD build for a family member, and they were really please with how it looks. It doesn't try to wow you, its just a quality case at a good price. No issues installing any of the components.

Cons: Nothing.

5 out of 5 eggsNeat little case. Really cold.

Pros: The case breathes well, and the fans keep everything inside cold to the touch. There's a spot to screw an SSD to the bottom of the case, and the optical drive attaches screwlessly. Lots of front ports.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: Solid simple case, well built. 4 USB ports up from 2x 3.0 and 2x 2.0

Cons: Blue led lights on front fan might get on your nerves if it is on top of a desk.
