4 out of 5 eggsGood value

Pros: Decently-solid construction
One of the few cases that have two USB 3.0 front ports at this price point.
Easily removable front mesh fan cover and dust filter
Good value for $40

Cons: Power and Reset buttons are in a strange spot.
HDD activity light is overpowerd by the insanely bright power light.
Stock fan in the front is very loud. Restricted airflow due to filter and mesh makes it even louder.
Difficult to mount a hard drive when motherboard is installed. I would suggest installing the motherboard first without CPU heatsink or RAM as these were the two components that tog in the way when installing the Hard Drive.
Knockout PCI covers are just lame....
Oily smudges show up easily on the exterior when handling.

Other Thoughts: For those complaining about lack of 2.5" SSD mounting options... just use one screw... anywhere... thats all it needs.

3 out of 5 eggsSolid, difficult layout, front fan filter cover

Pros: Front intake fan with easily removable filter cover

Cons: Poorly laid out, makes things difficult.

Other Thoughts: I concur with most of the existing reviews here. This is a relatively low quality case, you get what you pay for. I chose it for the easily removable front filter cover, to run positive pressure cooling on a low-power system. I swapped the left and right side covers, as I didn't want a left side vent allowing in dust. Note that there is only one small vent on the back, capable of receiving an 80mm exhaust fan.

The included 120mm fan is a 3-pin type. An 80mm fan I procured separately would not fit directly under the included fan; I had to mount it inside the case, by the SSD. And the four mounting holes for it are large diameter and not tapped for screws; I used rubber fan mount pegs, but it was very tricky to get them installed in that inaccessible spot.

No real filter was included. The filter cover contains a sheet of plastic with rows of holes punched in it. I'm getting a thin filter meant for a window-mounted air conditioner that can be cut to size.

I removed the PCI slot covers before installing any components. They popped out easily. A bit more difficult was breaking out the cover for the second 5.25" bay. It was attached at four points and couldn't easily be twisted out with a bit of collateral damage: some bending of the surrounding metal, and some scratching of the interior paint.

A minor consideration: as previously mentioned, if you mount an SSD as designed (at the front floor of the case), you cannot use a right-angle SATA cable.

A major consideration: as noted, it's very cramped around the back of the hard drive bays, where any HDDs protrude over the motherboard, interfering with RAM, CPU cooler, motherboard power connector, etc. I have Intel-supplied CPU cooler, normal sized RAM, a HDD, and it all fits, but any change to HDD configuration will involve a lot of extra hassle (redoing CPU cooler). Removing or installing RAM will be awkward with the HDD installed, but should be possible.

Thanks to previous reviewers, I knew what I was getting into. I'm not expecting to make frequent changes, so the poor layout won't matter, and it's a worthwhile trade-off to get the easy filter cover.

The case seems solid. Plenty of screws are included, and motherboard stand-offs, all painted black. The side covers are held on by thumbscrews and everything fits snugly. The filter cover and 5.25" bay covers are removed by bending plastic tabs. The plastic front cover is held on adequately by tabs. The front USB3 ports work fine, the power and reset buttons work, the power and HDD LEDs work.

2 out of 5 eggsShoddily designed, even for the price point

Pros: Inexpensive, metal construction, has front USB 3.0.

Cons: Spectacularly poorly thought-out design all round. Routing cables down the back of the case is impossible, the punch-out PCI lane covers make changing configurations with the motherboard installed a nerve-wracking task, and the ventilation is minimal, at best.

Of all the problems, though, I single out the 2.5" drive bay as the most extreme. The only way to mount a 2.5" device in this case is via four screwholes in the bottom, which don't leave nearly enough step-off for a standard right-angle SATA power connector. In the end, I wound up having to bodge together a fix with extra-long fine threaded screws and self-stick drive spacers left over from two different SSDs. I have to sincerely doubt that the designers of this case ever installed a full system in it.

Other Thoughts: The bottom line: although the case does include all the features listed in its specifications page, many of them are implemented in impossible-to-use ways.

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

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:
- ASrock H77M
- 92mm Rosewill CPU Cooler
- Corsair CX600 PSU
- EVGA GTX 260
- (3) HHDs
- ASUS Wireless PCI Card
- Hauppauge TV Tuner
- 80mm Case Fans in rear and front
