4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great value case that has a nice removable front-intake filter and compact in size. Great for setting up a first-time computer or a temporary to house the components. It is nice and light-weight, and has a very smooth black color to the inside and outside.

Cons: Does not provide cable routing options for the back of the PC, I found it hard to install hard drives into the appropriate slots, and I would have likes to see another implementation for the 2.5" drive bay. Because of the way the power cables are made, the SSD that I put in would barely attach to the bottom of the case without the cables bending upward. I also had a hard time putting in the PSU for some unknown reason.

Other Thoughts: It would have been nice if the power and HDD LEDs were different colors instead of them being right next to each other and being a bright blue color. All-in-all, it's a budget case that is well-built that I would recommend to a first-time buyer.

5 out of 5 eggsSexy bargain

Pros: No problem with included screws and standoffs that others reported.

There is space for ($$$) a 92mm (rear) and 80mm fan (front) if your u-ATX MB has 3 system fan headers (otherwise need a controller or run off the PSU). The 120mm included front fan is 3-pin. It looks to me that the 120mm fan will block the mounting of the 80mm fan unless you move the 80mm to the inside (other side) of the case.

As noted mounting holes for a 2.5" SSD at case bottom provided.

With both side panels off routing wires streamlined was not too hard. I too would recommend a modular PSU to eliminate clutter, but I was able to tuck away a non-modular bundle in the empty second from the top bay. Flashing from a corner rivet prevented the PSU from sliding into place. I was able to force it otherwise I would have to file it off a tad which would have necessitated me taking it all apart so filing bits would be inside the case.

For the price nice case. 19-pin USB3 header cable for front USB3. Blue front LED that is tastefully discrete. Power and reset button recessed (and really hidden by being same color as case).

Cons: Case is flimsy but braces up solidly and is quiet once components are in place. Weighs nothing.

I removed and replaced the stamped knock out expansion slot covers with ($$$) 3 third party slot covers (and one open for the GPU card). It will be a bear otherwise later to add cards. This case will most certainly fit long cards, unlike others reported.

It is a somewhat tight space. I recommend after installing the rear I/O panel that the MB be the FIRST component placed. And that while the RAM and CPU can be pre-mounted leave the HSF off. It will be tight getting any hard drives into the internal bays otherwise if using stock...impossible with a larger 3rd party HSF. Mount the HSF towards the end. If the drives are in place before the MB there is little to no room to slide the MB in. So best mounted first.

Other Thoughts: Inexpensive case so you get what you pay for...flimsy and some fit issues. Stamped expansion slot covers sucked. But it worked, felt good post-build and looked good. Silverstone has designed a modern inexpensive, stylish, BLACK!!!! case with 2 USB3 ports up front. 120mm fan was quiet. Case sides did not rattle. I would buy again.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome case for the price

Pros: Silverstone is a brand I can trust. They haven't let me down with their other products. This case at the time of purchase was only $34.99 with a $5.00 MIR. It has a nice 120mm front fan with a removable cleanable filter. The filter in my environment will keep most of the junk out although it's no regular or "hepa" filter by any means.

The case is nicely finished with a black anodized look. It also has two usb 3.0 front ports and audio ports which is quite hard to find a case this cheap let alone a smaller form factor case. The pci expansion slot covers are a one time use only deal. I recommend before putting things into the case, to figure out which ones you need to use and punch them out. I did it the other way and it wasn't as fun with a motherboard in the case.

For my Asrock motherboard the layout was perfect and the same goes for the Corsair CX600 PSU I put in this case. Cable management is at a minimum as there are only a few zip tie attachment locations and no real space behind the motherboard tray for wires. I would recommend if at all possible to get a modular PSU or plan on having one of the 5.25 drive bays occupied with the extra wires on a non modular PSU.

There's a spot on the bottom inside of the case to attach an ssd or laptop hard drive if needed. I'm glad they included a spot for this however I would change the design a little. The screw holes have no real standoffs and almost sit flat with the bottom of the case. After attaching my SSD I realized that there wouldn't be enough gap between the case and the SSD for my SATA power plug to plug in. You either have to have a SATA power plug that has it's wires fed straight in, not at an angle as most do, or do what I did. I went to the local hardware store and bought some appropriate 1/2" stand offs to raise my SSD; total cost around a buck. This might be a good design change for Silverstone to listen to?

As I only have one other hard drive in use in this system the cage would totally fine for my purposes. With the Asrock motherboard I had I found it best to install the memory, cpu, and heatsink first then install this into the case. The other hard drive I use in the cage doesn't seem to block anything as others have said. The case seems solid for the price and I wouldn't change too much on it. Maybe it would be good to add the ability to add a fan to side?

Cons: None for this price

Other Thoughts: Other than my minor suggestion for the SSD location design change, I can't think of anything else.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little Case!

Pros: Fits a larger sized Micro-ATX board pretty well, Front USB 3.0 is fantastic, Front Mesh pops off easily for regular cleaning, very small form factor overall

Cons: the Hard drive cage blocks access to one of my RAM slots after a drive is installed, tall memory sticks would hit the hard drive in that location

Other Thoughts: if the hard drives could be oriented differently, either perpendicular inside the case or turned on their sides, it would make fitment a lot easier and future-proofed.
Be aware of how many wires your PSU has, the setup I built had tons of extra wires I had to cram below the DVD drive bay. There is not a lot of open space once you put everything together. (don't block the 120mm fan either!)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat value

Pros: Great small and light case. Thumbscrews on side panels. Thin metal construction but entirely adequate. No frills - expect to use a screwdriver inside. Single ssd mount on floor. Easy cable mgmt with many tie locations. Quiet fan.

Completed a simple build with stock intel cooler, single ssd, gtx card and modular ps without issues.
Added a 92mm fan on back.

Did not fill 5.25" bays; used external USB3 DVD instead. This left lots of room for cable mgmt, which was minimal due to modular ps.

Last few builds were LianLi. This is my first Silverstone and I leave satisfied.

Cons: Adding platter drives will require memory removal first. And most likely cpu cooler as well if not stock.

Rotating the drive cage 90 degrees would solve this, but might make the case slightly wider.

Other Thoughts: ASRock H87M
SeaSonic X650 Gold
EVGA GTX 760
SAMSUNG 840 EVO

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case but plan ahead first

Pros: Compact size, great looks. Everything I put in fit, once I planned it all out. It's definitely smaller than a full-sized case so the luxuries of quick-connect brackets and room for wire-routing aren't there. Once both panels on each side are opened, there is enough room to do anything you may need. My 11in video card fit in perfectly and doesn't come close to hitting the HDD bays. Also, the (2) USB 3.0 ports are very nice.

Cons: The front LED shines blue and very bright. The rear expansion slots must be punched out so DO THAT FIRST before the motherboard goes in. Otherwise you'll scrape it. Also, long HDDs extend out, barely over the motherboard. Make sure you plan ahead where the HDDs sit in relation to the CPU cooler/ram/motherboard ports. In my case, I had the wiring for the CPU cooler, MB power, HDD SATA, HDD power, USB 3.0 all squeezed between the CPU cooler and (3) HDDs! In short, Adjust where your drives sit, accordingly. If mating a large CPU cooler, it may be best to mount it last. There isn't much room to swivel the board in and plug wires in once it's mounted.

Other Thoughts: This case paired with these components snuggly:

5 out of 5 eggsGreat MicroATX Case

Pros: This is the best MicroATX case I have found. The 120 mm fan blows right across the hard drive keeping it nice and cool.

Cons: The hard drive sticks out a little bit over the motherboard, which can cover up access to power connectors and RAM slots.

Other Thoughts: I usually add a 92 mm fan to the back:

http://www.neweggbusiness.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9B-35-226-038

Sometimes I add an upgraded heat sink. The Cooler Master Hyper TX3 barely fits but can conflict with tall RAM heat sinks on some motherboards.

http://www.neweggbusiness.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9B-35-103-064

The Cooler Master HH 101 is smaller and should work with about any configuration.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent for the price

Pros: Small footprint, nice cosmetic finish, good ventilation.

Cons: Could use additional 3.5-inch internal bays, power and HDD lights can be harshly bright

Other Thoughts: Since this is a relatively small case, one must take care in not overcrowding it with components. It sports a nice black finish and it easily fit a microATX motherboard. It comes with a 120mm intake fan which is making it possible to keep the CPU temperatures in the 30-40 degree Celsius range, and you can slap a 92mm exhaust fan to make the best of air circulation. There's also a large mesh grill on the side panel that helps repel the heat as well.

Product description says you have four 3.5-inch bays but I could only feasibly fit three drives in there. Adding a fourth drive requires that you install it right on top of each other, risking an electrical short or shortened drive life from heat build-up.

Overall, the case is a solid winner for the money.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great little case. Build quality is great for the price. Includes tool that allows you to screw in motherboard standoffs with a screwdriver. Included fan is whisper quiet.

Cons: You do have to punch out the covers for the expansion slots and the secondary 5.25 inch drive bay.

Other Thoughts: Use a magnetic screwdriver or get someone with small hands to help you screw in the corners of your motherboard. A short, modular power supply makes this a very easy build.
