A great choice for performance and value, the APEX AM-01 delivers an excellent fusion of style and function. It is simple, elegant and compact, and can be used as either a tower or a desktop. The APEX AM-01 can house the Neo-ITX form factor motherboard (for Avata/ via APC boards only), and features sturdy construction and thermal optimization. It's also easy to install!
Pros: Cheap, sturdy, external power switch and LED indicator.
Cons: The ports in my board (APC Rock) didn't line up perfectly with the stamped metal backplate when snapped into the case. The mount posts needed to be shimmed up about 1/32".
Other Thoughts: Without the shims, it still lined up close enough that you could cram cables into the holes. It's also possible the cause was lack of precision in the stamping of the plate, which came with the board and therefore shouldn't be blamed on this product. I don't have a "known good" case or plate so I can't prove which of the two is to blame.
