4 out of 5 eggsGreat, But Not Eggcellent

This review is from: SilverStone Milo Series ML07B Black Reinforced plastic outer shell, steel body Mini-ITX DTX Computer Case with PCI-E Riser

Pros: > Accomodates a ton of stuff in a small form factor
> Fits most full size graphics cards
> 2 PCI slot holes in the case, allowing dual-wide cards such as all current gaming video cards
> Fits multiple 2.5" disks
> Small (slightly larger than an Xbox One)
> Well built PCI-e riser
> Good value. Relatively cheap for a small form factor or HTPC case.

Cons: > Requires lots of patience to work with this case. You must disassemble most of it to get the best angles and easiest working space to fit all your components in.
> Cables are too long. What was Silverstone thinking? This is a Mini-ITX case after all and it's only but so big. Furthermore, you are very limited as to where the mobo can go. There's just no reason for the long cables. Partly why I dinged it 1 egg.
> M.2 connector is on the underside of the board. Very inconvenient. You must remove the entire mobo to adjust or change whatever you have plugged in there. I chose not to use it rather than have to deal with that in the future.
> There is a PSU vent on the bottom of the case, however it is only large enough for a 60mm fan. My PSU has a 120mm fan. I only get part of an opening. Very inconvenient. Wish I knew this before purchasing the PSU.
> Only fits 1 3.5" disk, but do you really care w/a Mini ITX build?

Other Thoughts: > RTM before you buy. For example, you must use a SFX or SFX-L PSU with this case (yes the "L" variants DO fit in this case, in spite of lack of that info on Silverstone's website).
> It's time intensive to work with these small form factor cases. If you are only used to full size or mid size cases and ITX form factor motherboards, you are in for a treat in more ways than one - including how long you will spend trying to fit all the dang parts in these small cases, while still allowing for sufficient airflow. It's always a challenge.
> Be sure to dry fit before installing anything. When fitting your motherboard, connect as much as you can before bolting it inside the case.
> I recommend having a small supply of zip ties and plastic wire tubing. Also, IMHO you should ensure the latter is automotive or marine rated, so you know it will be able to withstand the heat inside your mobo with no issues.
> If you choose to use an after-market fan (e.g. for overclocking), as I did, make sure it won't be too big. I used the Silverstone SST-AR06 (NewEgg item # N82E16835220069). It fits easily, however on my mobo (AsRock Z97E-ITX, NewEgg item # N82E16813157504), I had to re-seat the CPU fan after my initial installation because the heat pipe on the AR06 blocked my ability to install full size DIMMs in one of the RAM slots. Easily solved, but a pain as I had to completely remove the CPU fan (which is bolted from underneath the board).

2 out of 5 eggsWrong Dimensions

This review is from: SilverStone Milo Series ML07B Black Reinforced plastic outer shell, steel body Mini-ITX DTX Computer Case with PCI-E Riser

Pros: Looks cool
Houses large a large video card
Uses somewhat standard SFX PSU size
Black everything

Cons: Not the highest quality
Internal shipping damage (not well packed)
Listed dimensions are wrong
Cheapy power button
No air filtration; dust build-up likely

Other Thoughts: Had to return for two reasons:
At the time of purchase, newegg lists the external depth at 13.8 inches. This is incorrect. The actual depth is 14.25. I was planning on the case just barely fitting in my cabinet, with right angle connectors on the HDMI, etc. But since the case is almost 1/2" larger than specified, it doesn't fit.
The case also had shipping damage, internal to the shipping box. There wasn't any damage to the box. The plastic sides of the case had their plastic clips ripped off. It looks like the case wasn't held tight enough by the foam packing. (Silverstone's packing, not newegg).

I'm not sure why it is so hard to find a good HTPC case. I once made a HTPC case out of an old VCR. It didn't look terrible nice, but everything fit within the size of a VCR. Held a normal microATX mobo (not just a miniITX) with room for 4 slim/half expansion slots, normal-size ATX PSU, 3.5" HDD, 2.5" SSD, slim optical drive, Intel stock cooler and fan, normal-size sticks of RAM, and 3x 80mm super-low-speed fans. And obviously it would fit in almost anyone's cabinet, because it was the size of a VCR!

5 out of 5 eggsPassive cooling Case

This review is from: SilverStone Milo Series ML07B Black Reinforced plastic outer shell, steel body Mini-ITX DTX Computer Case with PCI-E Riser

Pros: * I purchased this case to start my Steam Machine Build. I chose it because of the faux Aluminum Panels to match my Audio Equipment.

The Case has a decent quality> The PCI riser card is solid construction but still needs a screw to keep it in place so it doesn't break, the PCI card io slot at the back of the case requires extra effort to remove> this requires the use of force to remove the panel to insert a PCI GPU.

The process of inserting a full Size 10.5" length GPU to match the io and PCI slot requires alot of balancing and twisting of the back io Panel to get the GPU to slide into the PCI slot as well have the back io panel match the screw holes to secure it in place> this proves even more difficult if your using the Silverstone DVD slot load drive that can be used in this case, as the drive itself can block the Card's (Holder Panel) from closing down properly. (And lining up the secure screws to a chassis bracket)

The GPU Holder itself can mount two 2.5" HDD drives. + DVD slot load drive.

I was considering purchasing a standard Rear exit GTX 780ti card in order to prevent any heat buildup inside the small compact Case, but decided to go for a Full Passive cooled GTX 780 ti (Gainward).

The Gainward Card is IMO the best GPU you can put inside this case and would not recommend other (unless smaller).

* It basically has x3 Fans that are evenly spread across the entire GPU's Heat sink.

I later discovered that this case requires Negative pressure to work properly.

The reason the GPU is the recommended fit for this case is because when coupled with a pair of Quality 120mm -15mm Fans (Found at the Bottom of the GPU area)...the GPU and Case Fans are in direct contact with each other.

* What basically happens is the GPU pushes hot air down> which could be an issue> this then requires orienting the bottom fans to Suck air up onto the GPU & into the case.

The results causes all the hot air inside the case to be expelled out the sides of the case.

Those slots / vents at the side of the case are actual vent areas, IMO a clever design, because I found out that orienting the bottom fans to push air out the bottom caused the GPU temps to increase above 92-100c!!!

*When I switched the fans orientation to suck air into the case (As well as the CPU mounted Fan) The GPU temps held at a remarkable 72C!!! When placed on the floor in an open area.

These temps come from a 10 VRM GPU that converts tons of extra voltage values to Heat (to better filter voltage fluctuations etc)

Most GPU's inside this case AT BEST hover around 82c when loaded.

This case can expel exessive amount of heat out the sides with all fans at Full (2200rpm)

*The worst the temps have gotten after placing the Case inside a cabinet are 78c-82c> which is what should happen because the hot air exiting out the sides hit a ceiling where they sort of stick there, otherwise this case is an ideal solution to passive cooling.

Cons: The pci Moutning Bracket can be difficult to install with a large GPU.

The bracket requires you line up pci riser card with the back panel io screws> as well the DVD slot load drive requires it be installed and oriented as well, including the PCI mount mounting screws need aligning as well. x3 Different areas need to be aligned properly.

Other Thoughts: A very good Passive cooling Case.

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful construction

This review is from: SilverStone Milo Series ML07B Black Reinforced plastic outer shell, steel body Mini-ITX DTX Computer Case with PCI-E Riser

Pros: Clean design
Easily accesible space inside
Front USB ports

Looking to build a few of these HTPC's and this is the other case that I'm using. Would definitely recommend it to anyone trying to do the same. Check your size requirements as the case was a little bigger than I expected (though it still fit where I needed it)

Cons: None yet. Does require a fair bit of patience and attention to detail to install all of the components. Not sure that's a "Con" though.

Other Thoughts: Buy/Find a magnetic screwdriver with a long shaft. Two of the screws that hold the PSU enclosure in place are a bit difficult to get to and impossible to put back in if you do not have a magnetic screwdriver.

5 out of 5 eggsA Satisfying HTPC Build

This review is from: SilverStone Milo Series ML07B Black Reinforced plastic outer shell, steel body Mini-ITX DTX Computer Case with PCI-E Riser

Pros: Allows (almost) no-compromise high-performance gaming system in a perfect, slim, and quiet HTPC form factor. Pleasing looks and well thought-out design.

Cons: Power and Reset switches are just cheesy. They are bending/flexing plastic tabs. Also hard to read/see symbols for both.

Build quality (screws, joints, finish) is not as good as my last Lian Li C-37B HTPC case (but then that case cost nearly 2X and still can't hold a decent GPU). Quality is OK given the price, but considering the total value of my system and the fact it's in my living room, I'd gladly pay $50 more for a higher quality look and feel.

Instructions are lengthy, but in practice I found them confusing and incomplete - I ended up ignoring them and just relying on experience. Reading the reviews here on Newegg was actually far more helpful than the manual in undertaking this project.

Other Thoughts: As others have noted, case fans are required, especially if you are going with a powerful GPU (which is really the whole point of using this particular case). I chose to install two 120 mm fans in the bottom locations under the GPU, and for now have not installed any fan in the upper location (as I have a relatively cool CPU). So far, so good.

Others have commented on the need for using special cable kits or low profile SATA cables. I did not end up needing any of these, but that may depend on your choice of Motherboard.

The availability of a full-size 3.5" HDD slot was a nice surprise. Not required really in my opinion, but at least it allowed me to recycle one of the surplus 2TB drives I had laying around.

This was my first time using slim slot-loading optical drives. Lesson learned - the Panasonic model that I chose ended up requiring a "Slimline SATA" connector adapter - which I did not discover until after the drive arrived.

No regrets on choosing this case. I think it's the best solution available right now, given my goals for this project.

My system configuration:

ASUS H87I-PLUS-R LGA 1150 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard
Intel Core i5-4570S Haswell Quad-Core 2.9GHz 65W, Stock cooler
Team Dark Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory
EVGA 04G-2972-KR GeForce GTX 970 4GB Nvidia GPU
Crucial M500 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal SSD
2.0 TB Seagate Barracuda Green 3.5" ST2000DL003 SATA 6.0Gb/s 5900 RPM
Panasonic UJ-265 Slim 6X Blu-ray Writer SATA (Slot Load)
Silverstone ST45SF 80 Plus Bronze SFX 450W power supply
2x LOGISYS Computer SF120 120mm Extreme Quiet Rubber Fan

3 out of 5 eggsMarginal

This review is from: SilverStone Milo Series ML07B Black Reinforced plastic outer shell, steel body Mini-ITX DTX Computer Case with PCI-E Riser

Pros: Slim, nice use of space for power supply

Cons: Plastic outer shell has little bits breaking off and rattling around.
Having to remove graphics card to get to fans is unpleasant...
Was expecting fans - my fault for not reading specs with proper attention to detail...

Other Thoughts: Overall...it works - was going to use 3...won't do that now.
I loved the SilverStone itx tower.

5 out of 5 eggsBest case scenario.

This review is from: SilverStone Milo Series ML07B Black Reinforced plastic outer shell, steel body Mini-ITX DTX Computer Case with PCI-E Riser

Pros: * Small, but fully featured for the discerning HTPC or ITX-based gaming build.
* Sleek yet unobtrusive design - will look very good amongst your home theater A/V equipment, without sticking out like a sore thumb.
* Clever internal layout - this case takes advantage of every square inch.
* Solid, if somewhat uninspired, build quality.

Cons: * Installation requires a little bit of planning ahead. (Not especially a con for experienced small-form-factor builders!) Not intended for those people who tinker/test or like to swap parts out on a weekly basis.

Other Thoughts: In my opinion, this is currently the best "living room PC" case on the market. Yes, there are some limitations to what you can stuff in it, but for the vast majority of HTPC users and single-GPU gamers, this case deserves your money. That is, unless you prefer the style of the Raven version of this case. :-)

There are a couple of wish-list improvements that could be made (mostly regarding the SFX form factor power supply, really, not the case itself) but those are nit-picking at best.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Case, tight build space

This review is from: SilverStone Milo Series ML07B Black Reinforced plastic outer shell, steel body Mini-ITX DTX Computer Case with PCI-E Riser

Pros: This case has a small footprint with the ability to hold a full size graphics card. 3 120mm fan locations for direct cooling of hot spots. Slim design very neat and understated, would make a great HTPC or living room gaming system.

Cons: Must have an SFX power supply. P/S mounting is a PITA, the screws are located tight at the bottom and you will need a magnetic screwdriver to get to them easily. Cable routing with Silverstone SFX power supply is difficult unless you have their flat cable kit. Fan cables and SATA cables must be carefully routed or you may end up touching fan blades. USB 3.0,Power, Reset and LED wires are too long, had to fold/loop excess behind power supply.

Other Thoughts: I bought this case because I wanted a Gaming PC in my garage but I didn't want to take up a bunch of bench space. Once I had everything assembled, it is exactly what I needed. I added 3 120mm fans and the system stays just as cool as when it was in my Lian Li mATX case. I just ordered the Silverstone flat P/S cable kit and I really wish they would have made a kit for this case (450w or 600w P/S with flat cables, make a discount purchase or something!)

If anyone from Silverstone is reading this, I highly recommend a Ver. 2 for your SFX power supplies, get rid of the sleeved stiff cables and only use the flat ones.

I like this case design compared to the RVZ01. The RVZ is a love it or leave it design, where the ML07 is destined to be a classic.

If you buy this case, get the cable kit, a magnetic screwdriver and an assortment of different length SATA cables. Take your time building, and follow the directions, everything will fit, but if you aren't careful, you will end up having to re-mount parts just to get your cables neatly routed. I gave this case 5 stars because it is exactly what other reviews have said it was, and the quality was definitely up to Silverstone's better standards. Eventually this one will get modded for more portability, but for now it is exactly what I wanted!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat HTPC for Cheap!

This review is from: SilverStone Milo Series ML07B Black Reinforced plastic outer shell, steel body Mini-ITX DTX Computer Case with PCI-E Riser

Pros: - Pretty much the exact same interior as the Raven RZ01B which is what I wanted.
- Holds my GTX 780ti perfectly and there are holes to route pcie power cables.
- With 2 added fans it cools my 780ti very nicely, definitely gets loud though if you ramp the gfx card fan up.
- I was able to fit in a Corsair H60 watercooler in there to cool my 4790K! had to use a 12mm fan though but temps never go above 40C
- The design is subtle and not to stick out like a sore thumb.

Cons: - I don't have many cons really but I wish they would have included dust filters for all the fan holes. If the case cost more I would have subtracted an egg but for $60 bucks this is to be expected.
- If you want to work on a specific part besides the ssd it is tedious to get to it, again to be expected in a case this size.

Other Thoughts: This small little case can house a 4790K and a 780ti and keep it all cool. Really impressed so far.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Design! NEEDS Fans!

This review is from: SilverStone Milo Series ML07B Black Reinforced plastic outer shell, steel body Mini-ITX DTX Computer Case with PCI-E Riser

Pros: Slim, roomy, sturdy, versatile

Cons: No active cooling, needs fans if you are using it as a Micro-Gaming PC. Get's very hot when using a gaming graphics card.

Other Thoughts: I LOVE this case!! This is hands down the BEST Case design for a Small Form Factor PC that will actually FIT into most entertainment center cabinets, thanks to the mini-ITX motherboard form factor. (The Raven RVZ01 shares the same layout). Here are the specs of my HTPC

Motherboard - HP Irvine GL6E (NVidia 630i chipset)
Processor - Xeon X5450 3.00GHz (using the 771 to 775 mod)
Heatsink/Fan - Intel Celeron Cooler, aluminum fins, copper core
RAM - 4GB PC2-6400
SSD - Mushkin Enhanced 120GB Sata III
PSU - Silverstone 450W SFX Bronze
CD/DVD - Panasonic slim slot load CD+-RW/DVD+-RW
Video - NVidia GT640 1GB

This case, and the Raven, can accommodate everything you "need" for an HTPC or micro-Gaming PC. Mine is obviously being used as Micro-Gaming, due to the lack of BluRay playback (I have a Sony set top for that). The only bad thing about this case is that it gets really hot, mostly due to the lack of stock fans. The Raven would probably have gotten a 5 star rating from me because of the looks and the standard case fans. If you are just going to use onboard graphics, it's probably not a big deal, but with a discreet graphics option, I strongly recommend spending the extra $20 and getting the Raven Case. I originally had a GTX 560Ti but that was even worse for the heat build up... already had an extra GT640 so I just through that in and it works great for the games I will be playing on this setup... (nothing more intense than Batman, Need for Speed or Castlevania).

All in all, Great buy for the price!! Might add more to this after I find out how much difference the additional fans make, still waiting on them to arrive.
