The chassis is built with 1.5mm-thick aluminum alloy to minimize vibration.

4 out of 5 eggsThe Red Box

Pros: It looks nice, its 1/6 the size of my Fractal EATX case and still does much of the same things. it works. It was a challenge that got completed.
There is a good video on a Jonsbo V-3 case on you tube that gave me a good direction on how to proceed. With such a small sopace I knew cooling would be an issue. I tried some thinner slower 40mm fans and when they were pushed against the narrow restrictive slots in the rear it made the fans starve and whine. Theese fans were not even close to the type of cooling I wanted so I took a drill and a dremel to the rear of the case and opened up 4 40mm hiles to allow the cawe fans to freely move air out of the case. I installed 4 wire fan guards to cover them, just for asthetics. Now these fans (sunon) are 290mm and over 10000rpm at full aspeed so if it gets hot its not quiet. Even at idle it might be a little annoying to some but I can deal with it. So I used the new Pentium anniversary 3258 because of its overclocking potential and its ability to play most of what I play and because of the updatability of the Gigabyte Z97n wifi board I installed. I believe that there could be a potential heat issue if I used a good I-5 chip so this would suffice. If I upgrade I might change cases. I pushed things a little on the PSU by using a Corsair CX430, no problems even with OC settings on the MSI GTX760itx GPU. and a 4.2 OC on the processor. I used a Silverstone pro6 cooler with the fan blowing into the psu. I have a recycled Seagate 500gb 2.5" drive with Linux Mint17 and 120GB Intel ssd with Win7. I use 8gb of AMD pc1866 memory. It all works. While OC to 4.2 G and OC setting on the Gpu temps get to the high 40s on the chip. The fans do ramp up but I would rather have some noise than a ruined computer. I originally started this with an asroc all in one QC5000 that had problems and was returned. so you can go very simple or go crazy with this cube. It is cute.

Cons: Its small and does not have much air. Actually thwre is very little space that is not used. its EXTREMELY DENSE in there. Dont OC an I& and have reasonable expectations and all will be well. If you are reading reviews on this case you know this already.

Other Thoughts: If you just want something a little different this will work. With 20/20 hindsight choices were made because of the case size. because of this the best card I could reasonably use was that MSI 760 gpu card. Not bad but had I used a Thermaltake v1 I could have used a standard card and had many more choices, the same goes for processors. I might have gone for thr I5 instead. Hey the 3258 does most everything I asked it to, I played Firefall online, DeusEx, Just Cause2 ext. Settings for video might be a little less extreme than the R9 270 I have in my main PC but they are more than adequate for play. This does pretty much the same as my AMD8350 w r9 270 and 16gb of memory so can I complain, no. If you are going to build using an AMD APU like I was going to I would open up the fan exits and install some decent fans.Sorry if this was long winded but if you are planning for a mild system this will work fine, if you have higher aspirations I would look towards a small case with more ventilation options.If you scratch the back while opening up the fan openings a red sharpie marker will work wonders to cover it up.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case, tight fit

Pros: Cool color, small size, USB 3.0 connector

Cons: - difficult assembly due to the tight fit
- limited options for components, and size of case reduces options further
- Airflow - make sure you purchase 4x40mm fans
- no external drive bay (need to purchase an external drive)

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for mini-itx form factor, this is a great case. Be careful when ordering components. A few helpful measurements:
CPU cooling height - 80 mm (the PSU sits right above the CPU, so the more space the better)
vid card length - 180 mm (we discovered the EVGA 750Ti, which left plenty of space, or you may want to consider an integrated APU processor and skip the vid card completely)
The case fits a full size PSU, but we made the mistake of not ordering a modular supply. Go modular - airflow is an issue, and the giant wad of unused cables takes up lots of case space.

5 out of 5 eggsFirewall

Pros: Price, Size

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I bought this case to use as a firewall for a client office. it works great for what i needed. was a little bit of a chore to get every thing into the case but you can take off the bottom panel witch really helps. I will definitely use this case for more builds.

5 out of 5 eggsif you want a great looking case with minimal features look no further

Pros: excellent Lil case for the cost and build quality
breaks down easily plenty of room to store your psu cables out of harms way and will allow use of most full sized gpu's

Cons: i really am drawing a blank here, only con i can think of is more of a recommendation for the mfg, in future releases you might consider a slim DVD or blue ray

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Mini ITX case

Pros: Looks amazing
Brushed aluminum resists fingerprints
nice header positions
nice heat distribution for an aluminum cube

Cons: None really, if you know what you're getting into with a Mini-ITX build. I used a modular PSU with a GTX 750 that draws its power from the PCI-E slot, which kept my cables to the absolute minimum.

Other Thoughts: I probably looked at this case for about two months before actually ordering it, as I'm often anxious about placing orders on things like cases that you typically want to get your hands on and look at before the fact.

What I found is that with carefully chosen components, this thing is beautiful, stays decently cool and has some power under the hood. The main function of this build was to be a mobile Dota 2 PC that also ran Reason 7 Digital Audio Workstation software. I can throw this case into a duffle bag along with all my peripherals (except my monitor because it's stupid large), drive to whererever I need to go, and be up and running in minutes. It looks good wherever you put it.
]
I've yet to run into any heating problems, but if it ever came to it I would probably put a 120mm fan on the bottom of the case blowing up. Due to the compact size of the case, I believe the vent on the back would provide adequate exhaust without putting 4 40mm fans on it like some have talked about.

Build:
-gigabyte H97N WIFI mobo
-intel i5 4570S w/ stock cooler
-Corsair CX430M PSU
-Crucial M500 240g SSD
-2x Crucial Ballistix Sport Very Low Profile DDR3 1600 4g
-EVGA geforce GTX 750

Side thought: I don't know if Rosewill owns DIYPC, but this case is an exact copy of their V3-plus Mini-ITX case, just cheaper and in red. Not sure of the purpose of the rebranding.

5 out of 5 eggsLooks great and well made

Pros: Light, simple, well made and cheap. Looks great.

Cons: Edges are somewhat sharp.

Corsair PSU's SATA power cables are 90 degree angle. Drives mount flush to the base of the case and there is really no room to bend the power cable. Might need to use SATA extension cable like http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812400019

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.
