3 out of 5 eggsLoss

Pros: Good size, light weight, feels sturdy enough, although pretty plasticky in the front and doors. Easy to remove drive bay, not a hassle at all to figure out and implement. Great price, but see below

Cons: Power supply failed after 20 minutes. Should have researched better, but has 4-pin 12-volt, not 8, generally lacking in connectors.

Other Thoughts: My real problem is that the RMA shipping was $4.24 less than the RMA refund. Kept the case because I may get a new sfx psu to put in it, or mod to hold a PS2 power supply, and may use it in the future. Other than the psu failure, a great option for a light reasonably-sized budget build.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent case

Pros: Good cheap case with a good cheap psu, face it, if you're even looking at this thing you're not going for high end gaming rig. that said it run two rigs I've built with them fine, it is very compact, so thought is needed and hotswapping drives can be a pain or not possible if you're trying to use a heatsink other than a stock one... but whattf guys, a gaming rig needs a full atx, this thing is a wonderfully portable microatx case, comes with two small fans plus the one on the psu. Nice and cool I play warthunder and wot running a phenom 2 x6 and an old 9800gtx it has plenty of power to run this setup.

Cons: Construction is not top notch, the door on the optical drive bay easily snaps off and is out of the way forever. If you're trying to impress your girl with a fancy computer, DON'T. Buy this case and she will be happy knowing that you saved some $$ to shower her with the better things in life than your stupid computer case(been there). I built a second rig for work that runs laps around my laptop I was using(the laptop cost about 1700 new three years ago, current build about $350 total ;)

Build smart., I have two of these and am getting another now to build my buddy a rig on a budget.

Other Thoughts: IF you have the money, buy a full case, and a full power supply, do your homework and make sure that 400w is going to be plenty, as mentioned in other reviews, the power supply is a mini, not a big atx box. Seen way too many "failed build" review that were clearly just underpowered!!!

5 out of 5 eggsTopower Case

Pros: First off I have to point out this is a very sturdy build; the materials are nice, thick and strong. I was very pleasantly surprised; most cases at this price range have weak materials.

Second is the volume of the little fans. They are not as load as you might think; in fact I have had many 80’s and 120’s be much loader then them. I’m not saying they are silent but they are very livable.

Third is the ability to put full size expansion cards in the case. I also want to note, you can put larger cards in this case. Just to test it, I put a 7850 in the case and it just barely clears the optical drive bay. Depending on the board you get, you may need 90 degree SATA connectors but a full size cards.

Fourth is the PSU, which is a SFX. The SFX PSU is very nice and provided clean power. The PSU alone is worth the same as the case if bought separately.

Cons: First con would be the plastic that looks nice and works well, but could break after excessive use over time.

Second con would be the SFX PSU has both SATA power connections on 1 leg. The other leg has the Molex. This is not a big problem for most build because the HDD and Optical drive are mounted together and the SATA connections have plenty of length to span the distance.

Other Thoughts: Optical drive button can be tricky. You may need to adjust the depth of the mounted drive to make the button contact correctly. Slight adjustment is all that is needed and the case is able to do this fine, no need to cut or shave anything.

In all the case is very nice for the money and works well for a basic build. I would not change anything about this case! If you don’t want to use both 60mm fans, take one out and add and 80mm to the front of the case!

I would make a recommendation that this case better fist smaller Micro ATX (uATX) boards. You can fit full size (9.6” x 9.6”) but that puts connections under the Optical drive and gets very hard to manage. The (9.6” x 7”) work the best.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks for a small budget build

Pros: Relatively small size, but with enough room that working in it doesn't feel too constrictive. Price is the primary motivation for this one, so the included PSU is nice.

Cons: PSU has sparse connectors (only 2x SATA, no PCI-e, only 4 Pin CPU power). Meets my needs but may hamper others, but what do you expect from an included PSU on a budget case.

Metal IO shield was a pain in the bum to break out of the case.

Other Thoughts: Oddly, one of the rear fans uses a 3 pin connector and one is molex. Would prefer two 4 pin PWM connectors but again, budget build not expecting much.

5 out of 5 eggsJust-right sized case

Pros: Ideal size for a mATX or smaller board. Nice layout and pretty solidly built (esp. for the cost).

Cons: Only two things I'm not thrilled with:
1) The headphone jack on the front is a little weird. When plugging in a cord, there was a lot of resistance, to the point I was afraid I'd break the plastic around it. Hopefully it'll loosen up a bit or I'll just plug into the jack on the back of the box.
2) One of the fans has a standard 3-pin connector so the mobo/bios can control the speed, but the other just connects to MOLEX, so it's running full-speed all the time. It's not really that loud, but it does limit this case's usefulness for an HTPC.

Other Thoughts: An old ECS Atom330 mATX board slid right into place, along with a DVD-RW drive a a 3.5" HDD. Other reviews mention clearance issues between the back of the optical drive a CPU heatsink/fan, but that's going to vary from one mobo to the next (they don't all put the CPU in the exact same spot). Plus, optical drives these days are pretty compact, so it probably won't be an issue for you.

3 out of 5 eggsDoes NOT take standard ATX power supply

Pros: It's compact and quality is quite good with heavier sheet metal than the cheaper cases.

Cons: If you mount a DVD-RW drive, It's really a tight fit between the back of the drive and the CPU cooler. After struggling to make it all fit, I decided I really don't use the DVD drive that much anymore, so choose to leave it out of the build.

Hard to notice in the photo, but the power supply is not the standard ATX size. It's the smaller "SFX" size, which means you can't easily swap to a different power supply. Have to ding one egg for that.

The dual rear fan is 60mm and it's loud, yet don't move that much air. Had to add a 80mm front fan, which made the case even louder and slightly more air movement. Take another egg for that.

Other Thoughts: Overall, it's got it's shortcomings but the compact size is nice and the quality is not bad at all.

3 out of 5 eggsCase Closed

Pros: Price, small footprint, power supply unit included, four internal bays. Nice case for those that want a small footprint for their desktop computer. Topower did a great job on the design of this computer case.

Cons: No USB 3 on the front panel, only two SATA power connectors and three molex power connectors. Most hard drive, DVD's, and Blue-ray disk are all SATA...would be nice to have at least four SATA power connector.

Other Thoughts: Not for those that do not want to do any dis-assembly or assembly to put the motherboard in the case. Depending on the size of the motherboard you will have to remove the 5.25 and the 2.5 combo internal bay.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid basic case

Pros: Build goes together well, as said in title, case is solid enough.

Cons: Took a point away for misleading dimensions, the actual front to back depth is just under 14.75" including the face plate; the metal box itself is 13.25" front to back. When I bought this I was hoping the 13.25" was full depth.

Other Thoughts: Still a keeper. Newegg is great, got it for a a great price through a Newegg special.
