Features

Features
Superb airflow for a Mini-ITX case

1/3 the size of a standard case - compact and stylish design

Support full size high-end desktop components (full size ATX PSU, standard Mini-ITX MB, 3.5"/2.5" HDD/SSD)

USB 3.0 provides fast speed you need

High quality and high standard craftsmanship

Innovative cooling design: perforations in the panels vent hot air to keep heat from building up and slowing down your system. If your PSU has a 120mm fan, you can mount the power supply facing the CPU to aid in cooling. Mount the PSU the other way and cool the power supply with fresh air. It is your choice. The chassis is built with 1.5mm-thick aluminum alloy to minimize vibration.

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful Chassis & Well Made

Pros: This chassis is unbranded and looks like a million bucks. We couldn't be happier with it.

Cons: It only supports one 3.5" disk drive so full redundancy is out of the question with this enclosure unless you choose to use two lower capacity 2.5" drives in RAID 1.

Other Thoughts: We highly recommend this enclosure and intend to purchase many more once the orders start rolling in.

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful Case

Pros: -Small
-Big enough if you plan your build right
-Sleek
-Red.

Cons: -Requires careful planning
-USB 3.0 connector was a bit large. Didn't affect my build, but could see how it would get in the way. depends on the motherboard.

Other Thoughts: Love the case. It's slick, looks original, and is a nice departure from the huge, scary looking cases that most custom Box's are nowadays. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of those larger cases, so keep that in mind. Can also pack a punch, mine's packing an nvidia 760. Someone in the comments said the zotac 660 fits, and i looked into it- turns out the 760 has the same dimensions, but significant better specs. Awesome!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Case - needs more colors

Pros: Light, bare bones, cheap. Looks real good - it's a cube but just a bit higher than wide/deep.

I used this in the PfSense router build.
GIGABYTE GA-H61M-S1 (no usb3, but 3 pcix slots)
Intel Celeron G1610 Ivy Bridge 2.6GHz
SeaSonic SS-300ES Bronze 300W ATX12V

everything fits well. No it's not gonna win a neat prize, but all is well

Cons: None - The white sticker is annoying, but whatever.

Other Thoughts: Someone asked about mounting 4 40mm fans. While I can't imagine this being a good idea, They mount on the rear in a vertical line between Motherboard Tray and PSU. Look at the next-to-last photo.

4 out of 5 eggsBrilliant

Pros: -High quality, Apple-esque design.
-USB 3.0
-VERY small
-Very high quality/price ratio

Cons: -It doesnt have a 5.25" bay, but who uses one of those anyways.
-This is the big one: It has NO fan mounts, save for the 40mm in between the motherboard and the PSU they could have very easily fit two 80mm mounts below the PSU, this is why I took off one egg.

Other Thoughts: -It has very little room, so I definitely recommend a modular PSU, and I also recommend sticking to 2.5" drives. But this is comes with the small form factor
-needs a low profile CPU cooler (again, form factor) I used a Geminii M4 with an NF-F12
-I think this is great. I bought it for my mothers work PC, but I think it would be great for a small (tiny) low power gaming rig. Im thinking about buying another for my partner, throw in an i5 and a 750ti, it would be pretty cool.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than expected

Pros: I used a GIGABYTE GA-H87N motherboard and a single slot GT 640. I selected a standard ATX supply which did not have modular cables. Everything fit with much more room than I expected. I was able to tuck the unused cables between the mobo and psu along the top side of the case (several zip ties required). I also mounted the PSU to draw air from inside which kept me from adding a case fan. The heat zones are very well defined and there was plenty of flow to keep everything cool and quiet.

I have the black version and it is beautiful.

Cons: Don't lose any screws. No spares provided. The expansion slot bracket is about 1mm too short. Over tightening the thumb screw holding your card will cause it to push the card down into the motherboard.

Other Thoughts: There is no space for an optical drive. I didn't need one. There is also a lot of room at the bottom to accommodate dual slot cards and 3.5" harddrives. My setup has a single slot width video card and a slim SSD leaving a significant gap between everything. Which is probably a pro since it will help keep the video card cool.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Gaming Box

Pros: Thanks to Grassyloki for his review mentioning the Zotac GTX660 fitting in the case. It does fit.

Config
Intel Core i5-4430 Haswell
ASUS H81I-PLUS LGA 1150 Intel H81
Kingston HyperX Blu Red Series 8GB
500W PSU with a 120mm fan

Temperatures
I tried several configs and finely found the magic config to keep temps at acceptable levels. During normal, everyday use. Internet, Netflix and whatever, the rig runs cool. But during BF4 the video card was getting up to 80c, What I ended up doing was swapping out the stock PUS 120mm fan for a 3 stage Antec fan and oriented the PSU with the fan facing in. Configured this way when the GTX660 fans at 65% and the 120mm on high the PSU fan is able to exhaust enough of the hot air off the GTX660 to keep the video card from overheating the the computer.

Cons: None, but would like to see this one made in Blue

5 out of 5 eggsDIYPC V3plus-R

Pros: Very sturdy case, first time buying from this maker. Working on fitting the 550 watt modular supply, A10-6800 and motherboard I took it apart several times. The side and bottom come off with external screws. Never had a problem. First ATX power supply was a little long, the second one I tried fit fine.

In that photo link you can see how much distance you have for a aftermarket cooler.

Cons: The internal electronics have a cheaper look them but only time will tell. It has a double slot for a video card but remember you length you need the shorter cards for it to work. You have room for 4 / 10mm fans on the back.

Other Thoughts: I used as 550 watt power supply with a 120mm fan and pointed it toward the motherboard to aid in cooling. You have room for a bigger aftermarket cooler and with a A10-6800K you are going to need it.
