5 out of 5 eggsGreat for J1900 boards

This review is from: Rosewill Legacy V6-S Silver ABS / Iron / SGCC Mini-ITX Cube Computer Case

Pros: Bought this for use with ASRock Q1900DC-ITX and it's about as good as they come.
- Competitive price at $50
- looks nice on a media shelf.
- About the size of a basketball.
- Front panel covers the ATX PSU hole, which means that the case is well-suited for the ASRock board with its DC input.

Cons: - Supposedly fits four 3.5" drives but really only has accommodations for three. Only three of the drive bays have rubber grommets, and if you were to use a second 3.5" drive in the spot which is missing grommets, the spacing between the two mechanical drives would be awkward. It's clear that the manufacturer expected the user to use three 3.5" drives and one 2.5" drive, which is coincidentally what I intended on doing.
- External USB 3.0 header cable is absolutely terrible. Had to shave off the rubber tabs to avoid ripping the header off of the motherboard when detaching the cable.
- Cheap fan, somewhat loud. Lowering the fan speed makes it fairly quiet, although it's still louder than any Noctua fan I've used.
- Smallest ITX case with 4 drive bays I could find, but actually kind of big for what it is. Can't fit a high-end GPU, can't really fit beefy components, can't fit any sort of cooler other than the stock Intel cooler and maybe some of the lower-profile AMD coolers. Not enough space to be a powerful ITX system and bigger than it needs to be for a NAS/HTPC/server.

Other Thoughts: - Glad I went with silver instead of black.
- Needed a 15-pin SATA power extension cable to connect one of the top-mounted drives to the Q1900DC-ITX SATA power header.

4 out of 5 eggsNeeds lots of fan-power to keep Server drives cool

This review is from: Rosewill Legacy V6-S Silver ABS / Iron / SGCC Mini-ITX Cube Computer Case

Pros: VERY small
Stylish
Full grated front cover for more ventilation
Can fit four 3.5" drives (very tight fit, though)
No annoying LED indicators

Cons: Hard to keep everything cool without lots of fans
Can't fit in PCIe card with four 3.5" drives installed
Not much room for hardware to breathe

Other Thoughts: I bought this to house my Ubuntu 14.04 Server. I used a Fractal Node 304 for a year, but when I decided to build a Hackintosh, I repurposed the Node 304 for that, since it needed a full length video card.

My media server consists of four 2TB WD Reds, in a RAID5 array. I have an uber cheap motherboard (ECS H61H3v1), along with a Celeron G1610. This server simply does Plex Media Server, Couch Potato, SickBeard, and NFS/Samba shares for Time Machine backups / media libraries.

I decided to go all out with this case and install three Noctua NF-A6x25 fans in the open slots at the front bottom of this case (for overall positive airflow), a Noctua NH-L9I low-profile cooler for the CPU (overkill, I know), and an NF-A14 FLX case fan for the 140mm slot on the rear of the case.

With all fans set at silent (using included 3-pin silent adapters), drive temps hover around 40 C. With the front three fans all plugged directly into the 4-pin molex adapter, it's REALLY loud, but I can get the drives all down to around 28 C. With each on its own molex, but with the silent adapter plugged in, drive temps stay around 31 C, and it's not to unbearably loud.

I do also have to change the bios settings to turn the case/CPU fan (plugged into the same CPU header w/a splitter) to the "Regular" setting, rather than "Quiet" or "Silent", in order to keep drive temps down at 31 C.

I've found somewhat of a happy medium of cooling and loudness level, but it's still definitely louder than I'd like. Eventually, this server will sit in a room that I'm not also in, so it won't be a big deal then.

The only really big downside is that with all four 3.5" drives attached (they didn't include enough screws for all four, either), you can't fit a PCIe card in the PCIe slot on the motherboard. This is unfortunate, as now I can't add USB3 functionality to my motherboard.

If size constraints are your main priority for a four-drive server, this case is probably just about as small as you can get. If you want a well ventilated case that's a bit bigger, but won't need the fans at max speed to cool things down (and you won't have to buy extra fans for the case), I definitely suggest buying the Fractal Node 304 when it's on sale.

For me, size was incredibly important, and I'm pretty sure this tiny case is as small as I can go - I literally can't fit anything else in there when it's fully loaded. It's even hard to stick my fingers in the small openings once the PSU/drives/mobo are all installed.

4 out of 5 eggsSurprisingly good design

This review is from: Rosewill Legacy V6-S Silver ABS / Iron / SGCC Mini-ITX Cube Computer Case

Pros: Compact, sturdy, quality construction, well thought out, nice features.

Cons: Steel used for the structure is a bit thin, don't care for all black interior, meshwork on the side panels could be made easier to replace, should be targeted for SFX power supply - see more below.

Other Thoughts: The case is surprisingly well designed. Somewhat unusual for these cube cases, the structure is actually made out of three pieces (riveting job is superb). The base edges are rolled into a nice radius (helps replacing the clamshell easier and more secure), the tops are folded into C-channel and riveted in several spots. The rear cutout for the motherboard and the front one for the PSU both have folded edges. All of that together make for a unexpectedly light and sturdy structure, even though the metal used is 0.6mm. The metal for the cover is a bit heavier gauge (0.8mm). The meshwork on the sides can be removed and foam filter media inserted there (1/8" thickness seems to fit).

If you are bent on setting up the case for positive pressure, three 60mm fans can go on the front (suggest to use Noctua NF-A6x25 FLX for silent operation). The front meshwork is also metal. There is enough room between it and the front fans to insert some foam filter media there too.

The bezel comes off easily, held in place by plastic springy slit-rods (not tabs). When the cover is in place, the bezel does not rattle.

The HDD mounts come with rubber grommets. The case feet all have rubber - the front two are screw on, the rear pair are held by an adhesive.

The case comes with standard height threaded brass motherboard standoffs, which can be replaced if needed (a refreshing feature in such compact design).

Compared with similarly sized Cooler Master Elite 110, this Legacy V6 is about an inch shorter and narrower, yet it is more suitable (at least for air cooled) compact systems, thanks to that 140mm fan at the back. The fan is branded Rosewill and is rated 0.25A at 12V. The fan is a low speed model and appears to have sleeve bearings. It is very quiet and to my calibrated ear seems to merit it's 22.5 dBA rating. The fan starts at 5V just fine, and still moves sufficient air. At 5V, you do begin to hear a very faint switching noise from the motor, likely because the air movement becomes essentially inaudible.

The silly part of the case is that it is targeted for use with a standard ATX power supply. What do they think on is going to cram into such case that would require a full ATX power? Not to mention that these normally come with half cubic foot worth of cables which have absolutely nowhere to go. I entertained two solutions (both work): using an SFX PSU with adapter plate, or simply zip tying it the top HDD plate. Both approaches free up room inside very nicely with the latter approach having an extra advantage of allowing for about 125mm clearance for the heatsink (which is actually enough for compact tower heatsink, check for instance Dynatron K17).

The bottom line: great compact enclosure.

Now If only they'd made the structure from 0.8mm SECC, supplied the air filters, and lost the all black color scheme, it would have been perfect!

4 out of 5 eggsHTPC Plus

This review is from: Rosewill Legacy V6-S Silver ABS / Iron / SGCC Mini-ITX Cube Computer Case

Pros: Small size - minimizes space requirements
Relatively quiet 140mm fan - not required to add anymore fans
Good capacity for HDD
USB Ports on top of case - Remote receiver is easily in view for an IR remote

Cons: Attachment of the front USB ports and front panel wiring are bonded to front panel. Makes wiring them up more difficult than necessary since you have to route the wiring around the front mounted power supply.
Depth of the case is about 30mm shorter than it should be for ease of assembly. Possibly why the Cooler Master Elite 110 is slightly easier to build.
Needs to be 15mm wider for more clearance of double width video cards and the side mounted SSD/HDD.

Other Thoughts: If Rosewill changed the dimensions to be about 30mm deeper and 15mm more space along the side of the case where video cards/TV tuners mount it would easily be one of the best HTPC cases.
I really like the appearance with the silver weave front for an HTPC instead of black or aluminum finish. Makes it different.
