2 out of 5 eggsSmall

Pros: It's cheap?

Cons: Small, had to cut the hard drive bays out to make my graphics card fit.

Other Thoughts: Wouldn't buy another!

4 out of 5 eggsKNOW WHAT YOU ARE BUYING!

Pros: I *SOUGHT OUT* this case because of its diminutive depth. It is actually taller than it is deep, which is rare for a computer case. I needed a very shallow case for my faux-server to fit in a smallish cabinet and still have a backup hard drive protruding from a Kingwin KF-252-BK in one of the 5.25" bays with the cabinet doors still closed. This is the only case in existence that was shallow enough. The finishes are all nice inside and out, including paint and powder coating everywhere to prevent cuts to your hands and scratches to the finish. It even included a full complement of black screws to make your installation look nice, even though there is no window. The auxiliary power indicator is cool and looks good without being intrusive, but needing extra power for it is hokey.

Cons: The people complaining and removing eggs below because equipment doesn't fit are too foolish to read the dimensions before ordering. I knew it would be a tight squeeze to put my Kingwin KF-3002-BK RAID backplane in the top two 5.25" slots right in front of my non-modular 80+Gold Antec PSU, and they almost didn't fit. The optical drive right below that almost didn't clear a stray cap on the Asus M4N68T-M mobo, and cable routing was a first-class headache.


The sheet metal is also extremely thin throughout and one must be careful not to bend up the case as you work or gouge it with an over-tightened screw, especially if it is hard to fit your particular choice of equipment in there.

Other Thoughts: The case first arrived and the face fell off of it when it came out of the box. I suspect someone at UPS drop-kicked it from California to Texas. Newegg was great about the return, only number two in twelve years of using the company. The replacement was in perfect condition, even though the replacement box also looked like it had been dragged behind the truck.

If you're curious, there's also a 2.5" backplane in the 3.5" external slot that has been culled from an Athena Power RM-1U122ITXH2122. The Asus motherboard has 8GB of Corsair XMS3 DDR31600 and a Phenom II 1090T. The 2.5"
backplane has a Corsiar Nova SSD and the 3.5" backplane has 3 1TB HDD's in software RAID5 (fakeRAID5 would have forced the Nova to be configured as a JBOD and prevented Trim commands from being passed from the OS and that just wouldn't do).

It's an awesome little faux-server and much easier to fit into a cabinet than a rack mount or tower-server case would be!

3 out of 5 eggsLooks Nice

Pros: Case looks nice, has a nice finish. Came with enough screws to do anything for a Mid Tower.

Cons: Case isn't as big as it should be. I've bought several Mid Tower cases and I've never had a problem fitting a graphics card inside, I'll have to take tin snips to the 3.5" Bay to get my graphics card to fit in this case.

Other Thoughts: Overall, a good case for someone building a machine on a budget.

2 out of 5 eggsBad standoff screws, manufactuerer defect

Pros: Case is fine.

Cons: The standoff screws are MESSED UP and cannot fit any screw into them. They look like they were drilled twice.
Not cool.

Other Thoughts: Not happy. Was time-sensitive and now I gotta wait a week for standoff screws to come, not to mention pay extra money for something that was supposed to be included.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent case for the money

Pros: I have to seriously wonder what cases the other two reviewers got. Mine arrived to me in good condition, and while I would definitely classify the case as being made of very lightweight thin steel - it's much nicer than the steel of similarly-priced cases, in that it's completely powdercoated on all surfaces. No sharp edges to cut you. It's definitely a tight fit but as far as I can tell it's the only full-ATX case on Newegg with a depth of 15" or less, so some tightness is to be expected. There are a few large passthroughs on the top and front side of the motherboard tray so you can actually run most of your cables behind the tray. The HDD and power-on LEDs are actually far nicer looking than I expected them to be.

Cons: I do wish the case was a tiny bit wider - I have a Xigmatek HDT-S1283, which is a VERY tall heatsink and it is maybe 5mm too tall at the peaks of the tubes to clear (on top of a Biostar T5-XE and an i7 860). I'm actually using the case as a HTPC on its side set back in a media center, so five minutes with a drill press is certainly preferable to finding another heatsink.

Expect to spend quite a bit of time with this case making everything fit properly. Nothing wrong with the design, it's just the reality of trying to fit a full ATX board, a HD5770, two optical drives, a huge cooler, and a hard drive into this case. It all fits but it has to go together like a puzzle. If you want a case where you can throw all the components into it in five minutes, you'll need something bigger. The Sapphire HD5770 that just barely fits, so if you have some behemoth card, get a bigger case. Finally, only one of the provided expansion slot covers is replaceable. The rest just snap out permanently

Other Thoughts: The image Newegg provides with the measurements laid out on it is incorrect. Look at the side view if you're not certain - there's no way this case is deeper than it is tall. It's actually a bit under 14" tall, and a bit under 17" deep.

Again, be realistic with this case. This is not going to be made with the nice thick steel or aluminum you'll find in a much higher end case, and it's not going to have huge amounts of room. I ended up mounting my hard drive in one of the 5.25" bays simply because with the video card and location of my SATA ports, all of the hard drive bays were very difficult to access. But it's a full ATX case that's remarkably shallow, and while it's not easy to put together, it's not frustrating either.

1 out of 5 eggsNot happy!

Pros: It's lightweight, matte black interior. Very inexpensive.

Cons: Plastic bezel is very, very cheap. Broke in shipping in 4-5 places- Not even worth sending back for replacement, due to shipping costs. Case is TOO thin- Warps easily!!

Other Thoughts: Gigabyte should not be proud enough to put their name on this product. I've seen better cases from "No-name, Inc".

3 out of 5 eggsAverage.

Pros: It's functional and very lightweight. No problems fitting anything in the case.

Cons: It feels cheap. It might be because of the weight, but it feels like it would be easily damaged.

Other Thoughts: Not many fans, but for low heat producing equipment, it should be okay. Good for a "cheap build".
