4 out of 5 eggspretty good case

Pros: The case seems sturdy.
The case comes almost entirely apart for access to different areas.
The case comes with a lot of extras screws just in case.
With enough wiggling and experimenting I did manage to get an ASRock AD2550R/U3S3 Mini ITX Server Motherboard to fit into this.

Cons: The case comes with no real instructions. Some labels (like "A", "B", and "C") are stamped into the metal of the case itself in a few places to give you some hints. You can find a semblance of a manual online which illustrates that yes, you should take the case almost completely apart in order to fit your components into it. Contrary to the online manual you cannot fit both an optical drive and two 2.5" drives into this case. You can fit two 2.5" drives *or* you can fit an optical drive and a 2.5" (fitting the hard drive in with the optical drive requires a *very* low profile motherboard though). Or maybe you can fit all three in at once but I can't figure out how you would do this given the instructions available. The included power cables include one a single SATA power port so you also have to supply a splitter if you want to put two SATA devices into the case.

The PSU is an external brick, not a part of the case itself in case you misunderstood what "120W Internal Power Supply" means. Input to the case itself is via a laptop-style DC power port.

Most of the screws on the unit I received were overtightened. I stripped two of them trying to get them unscrewed. But, as mentioned in the pros, the case came with a bag of extras...

This is a small case and fitting your desired hardware inside might prove tricky. This is made slightly trickier by a power cable that runs from the rear of the case up to the front where the internal component of the PSU is housed.

Other Thoughts: Overall, seems like a decent enough product. An entirely internal PSU would have been nice. Also including a manual in the box would have helped. Or even providing a manual online with more than an exploded view of the components. But after a couple hours tinkering I got things working so I shouldn't complain too much.

4 out of 5 eggsGood news, bad news

Pros: Cheap. Sturdy metal components. Simple to open and close. No-brainer to use!

Cons: Awkward to mount a case fan. There are airflow obstruction issues with an Intel i3 CPU + cooler and heatsink. This requires some creativity to resolve.

Other Thoughts: I recommend only using an SSD for storage and an external optical disk (E.g. portable USB-connected optical drive) if a motherboard requiring a CPU heatsink+fan is employed - pretty much anything except an Intel Atom CPU board. Be sure to investigate ahead of time whether or not all desired inside-the-case components will fit.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, small, quiet, no manual

Pros: Small, slick looking. Fit most of what I needed.

Cons: Did not come with any instruction manual whatsoever. That would have come in handy when trying to put in my hard drive, since it looked like it attached to the bottom of the cd cage, but then there wasn't enough space for the motherboard/cpu/ram. I had to use the long screws that were included to put the hard drive in the cd drive bay, where there aren't HDD mounts. It would have been a lot easier to figure out with some type of manual or instruction sheet even. It's super tiny, I'm not sure how anyone could fit BOTH a hard drive AND a slim cd drive without the hdd also being slim, like SSD or something. Luckily I use mainly external USB dvd drives, but if I didn't I'd have been on the not happy side of the fence.

As a side note, I must not have read that the power is an external adapter. The adapter is included, and uses a normal computer power cable for it, but I'm so used to the normal cable going directly into the box, it took me aback for a moment. I ended up duct taping the charger to the case, though I could have probably found a more elegant way of doing it.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Sturdy

Pros: 3mm single piece side walls, excellent silver paint job, aesthetically pleasing, great panel fit

Cons: 2mm side and bottom, bright blue led on internal power supply shows through case holes, steel internal HDD/SSD bracket

Other Thoughts: This is a very sturdy case meant for low power CPUs like an Atom. If you choose carefully, you can use an Ivy Bridge i3.

My system:
i3 3225
Asrock H77M-ITX
Kingston HyperX 3k SSD
Crucial Ballistix 4GB
Internal Power Supply and external adapter that came with the case

CPU temps on the intel stock cooler stay around 40 deg C with a room temperature of 20 deg C. I may need to add a case fan or aftermarket cooler in the future. The case will get warm, as it should to dissipate heat. There are mods that will allow adding an i5 or i7 such as upgrading to a 160w pico psu and adding a hole and fan above the CPU.

1 out of 5 eggsBeautiful Case, USELESS

Pros: Beautiful Case, Solid Aluminum. Read Cons!!

Cons: I've brought this case just 2 weeks ago, I haven't been able to use it. Habey and Newegg should inform customers in the case description that this is strictly for ATOM based itx boards only. That Intel i3, i5, i7 motherboards are not supported with its integrated power supply. It comes with a 120w psu but its power adapter is 60w (total fail) I had to purchase a 120w adapter, and when I got it the pc would turn on and off by itself. Habey's customer service is a total garbage! Ive called them and they told me to send them emails instead. I've told them that i've changed the power adapter to 120w and the only suggestion is that it would work. I haven't been able to use this build due to this computer case.
Gigabyte itx GA-H61-USB3
Intel SSD 330 120gb
8gb DDR3 PNY
Intel i3 2125 CPU

Other Thoughts: For me is pointless to use this really nice case with a lack of performance that brings the atom cpu's. because its what only capable of handling its power supply.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Solid Strong Case

Pros: -Solid Construction: As strong as expensive cases!
-Includes Electronic PSU that goes upto 120W
-Small, Sleek, Sexy Design

Cons: -Should've Included A 120W Power Brick Instead Of The 60W
-Bright Blue LED on PSU; Should've used a dim LED
-Had to find alternate means of installing SSD

Other Thoughts: This case is excellent for my needs. Will probably have to get another power brick that can reach the full 120W because my computer shuts off when too much power is drawn. Also they have this SUPER BRIGHT BLUE LED on the PSU Board to indicate power, and I'm not talking about the blue light on the power button. This light indicates there's juice flowing to the power board. Next time a dim, green LED will suffice. Other than that, we'll see how it goes.

4 out of 5 eggsNice case design

Pros: The quality of the case is high quality heavy gauge aluminum and very tight fitting components as well as stable. Easy to follow the instructions with all the materials included. Small enought to hide or to be used as a HTC system in the house.

Cons: The case has only can used a 2.5" drive, untra low profile heat sink and a case fan to cool off the system. I had to drill holes to fit the drive. CPU watts can not be more than 65w. 35w cpu is the best design for this case.

Other Thoughts: I would say a cse fan should be included

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome construction quality; gets really hot

Pros: I use this case for my HTPC; when i first opened the box i was extremely impressed by the high quality construction. It's made from thick aluminum. You could probably stand on top of this case and it would be fine.

Completely silent

Cons: If you're going to use an optical drive with this case it doesn't come with a slim line power connector like this:
case also gets extremely hot would benefit from a low profile fan

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful box for HTPC

Pros: Very nice case. The construction is very high quality, with heavy gauge aluminum and very tight fitting components. I love the fanless design and the external power supply. Perfect for a HTPC design. Installation is pretty straightforward as well.

Cons: As another reviewer pointed out, you probably need to go with a 2.5" drive if you want to have a DVD burner in the case. Perhaps it is possible with very low profile memory chips, but for a fanless design I prefer memory chips with a heat sink and that precluded the use of the 3.5" drive. Actually, I had to drill a new mounting hole in the drive bracket in order to accommodate the 2.5 inch drive on its side.
