2 out of 5 eggsLoud and Hot

Pros: Good looking case, plenty of room to route cables. The two eggs are for the look of the case.

Cons: As another reviewer said, the PS exhausts inside the case and the entire right side of the case gets hot FAST. Even with an aftermarket fan in the back at full speed the PS fan still screams full-blast trying to stay cool...and the PS fan is LOUD.

Other Thoughts: Bought this for an HTPC with a Richland A6 APU, but the thing is so loud I'm gonna have to rebuild with a different case.

This little monster completely drowns out my mid-tower ATX PC when I turn it on.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent for small desktop

Pros: Great desin and quality. Everything works as expected incl the DVD player door and button. Sturdy and both power supply and case fan are very quiet.

Cons: was hoping to get it for 20$ less.....

Other Thoughts: needs quite a bit of attention with cable management to keep all cables out of the fans...... it is tight, but works easily with one full size ODD and one 2.5 or 3.5 inch disk drive (I used a SSD).

5 out of 5 eggsCute little case

Pros: Doesn't show fingerprints nearly as badly as I feared. Not cramped (another fear I had, as this is my first mini-ITX build). The front panel (LED/power button) connectors are sensibly designed so that I can tell the ground from the... other wire/pin. Also, very small! Quiet fans!

Cons: The optical disk drive tray sometimes (but not usually) gets caught on the case. The cables from the PSU are hard to reroute around some components installed in the case.

Other Thoughts: It's so cute! Lightweight, but seems sturdy (not that I plan to move it much).

4 out of 5 eggsNeat, but what about the heat?

Pros: Put my first Atom 330 in this case. If you love arranging wires and playing with tie wraps (like me), then this is a ton of fun! I replaced my old file server hw (Linux, Ubuntu 8.04) w/ this setup.

I tried to put the board in w/o taking out the power supply - if it can be done, I couldn't figure it out - so, just remove the 4 screws and the PS comes right out.

I have two SATA 1TB WD Green drives mounted in this case, had to use the included molex to SATA power adapter as the PS only has one SATA power plug otherwise. Had to use 5 1/4" drive mounting brackets (not included) to mount my second hard drive where the disc drive usually goes.

I also have a PCI TV tuner card (PVR-250) that fit w/o any problem. There really isn't any airflow over the card - which produces a bit of heat (possible concern).

Good rubber feet on the bottom, the case didn't slide all over the place while I was putting it together.

Was able to hook the front panel connectors (USB and Audio) without an

Cons: The included power supply exhausts INSIDE the case, this could be a deal breaker depending on your heat concerns. After getting it all setup, I closed up the case cover and left the room - came back 30 mins later and the fans were screaming loud. Apparently they kicked it into high gear trying to cool things down. I checked my hard drive temps and they were significantly higher than before.

After switching the direction of the case fan, things seem to be a lot better - but I'll wait and see if I need to get more creative with the airflow.

Not sure how I would hook up a S/PDIF breakout card to tie into the 3-pin HD Audio connector on the board - as there isnt' anymore room to put a card adapter (already using the PCI slot). One option might be to remove the small cover above the PCI card slot, to allow a optical cable to be passed into the case - or something similar.

For some reason the case is wider than I expected, but I can't see how they would make it much narrower - so, O

Other Thoughts: This case appears to be the same make/model as the Rosewill one, only the other one was two dollars more.

To increase airflow, I reversed the rear system fan to push air into the system instead of exhaust it out, this worked very well for my setup.

I left the plastic wrap on the case cover (for now), seems to prevent fingerprints, which (no doubt) the glossy finish is a magnet for. They punched holes in the plastic wrap where the side exhaust vents are so it doesn't seem to be in the way of anything like airflow.

I might replace the rear fan with some adjustable speed fans I already have.

To increase airflow, I moved the 2nd drive up as high as possible in the top 5 1/4" drive bay (so there is more of a gap between the two drives).

Included case fan doesn't report RPMs to the motherboard, nor does the power supply fan. At this point, I think the PS fan is the loudest component (already replaced the chipset fan on the Atom 330 board as many have recommended).
