4 out of 5 eggsPretty nifty.

Pros: Small. Well built. Nice brushed silver finish. Packaged well and arrived with no marks.

Cons: Side fan screws seem to be sized for 80mm instead of the stated 70mm? The side with the ventilation does not cover the entire side. DIYPC's red model addresses this issue, yet has no drilling's for fans on the side (easy to drill your own if you want though). I like the silver so I wish they had that these issues addressed in a silver case. Heat is an issue with a full size ATX PSU (partially my fault for not getting a smaller PSU).

Other Thoughts: Get a small PSU. I recommend waiting to buy extra fans until you see how everything fits. You can not fit fans on the side unless you have a small PSU, there is not enough clearance (less than 10mm with full size ATX PSU). Also note, if you choose to have a larger graphics card in your setup, a normal HD will block almost all air to your GFX card, I recommend sticking to 1 SD drive for your system and using external storage for anything else.

It is a nice case and it is cheap for what it offers!!!!!

Other case manufactures have also copied this design. The original manufacturer must have sold their patent? Unless they it was straight up reverse engineered it... possibly.

5 out of 5 eggsShiny!

Pros: This case and the others like it are hands down the best looking that I have ever purchased. Very solid aluminum construction with an attractive finish that should please just about anyone. It supports a full sized ATX power supply which is very important for managing the cost of any build.

Cons: This case should come with a USB 3.0 to 2.0 adapter for boards that do not have USB 3.0 pin-outs. It only supports one 3.5" drive which severely limits its use in a file and media server build (no RAID).

Other Thoughts: You won't regret purchasing this case even if it doesn't fully satisfy your needs. There is a lot to love here and the best part is that this case is brand free so it's perfect for the boutique PC business.

3 out of 5 eggsSmall and Tight

Pros: Nice design very minimal and brushed aluminum gives a much more expensive feel. Blue LED power and HD activity light is a nice touch and both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 is a good combination.

Cons: Very very tight fit to get your hands in and there are sharp edges in the build. Aluminum could be of much better quality and a bit more shiny.

4 out of 5 eggsNIce little case

Pros: Small size with light weight aluminium material so it will stay cool in proper environment. Mini ITX mobo with smaller video card, but measure before purchasing video card /probably less then 7". Good quality of work and finish. No DVD even slot-loading one so either external or set the system that will not require that of the user

Cons: No internal fans ventilating the case, heat from the CPU has to be absorbed by the power supply , no room for "tower" type of the cooler for CPU- stay with stock one.
Minimum bronze power supply with 140 mm fan.

4 out of 5 eggscan fit small M-atx.

Pros: good little case. very small but you can build a little gaming lan box/htpc.. or just clean cute desktop . the case is for Itx motherboards but i did put a smaller M-atx board in it. the case has 2 pce slots for a video card but there is space under the last slot for the mobo to hang down. I had an cheaper asrock 960GM-VGS3 FX M-atx board laying around with an AMD phenom ii x3 740 and a hd 7790. there was even though the case is very small there was still space for a 3.5 1tb hdd. and it holds a ATX psu. and not the smaller sfx. there is no case fans that come with it. but you can mount (2) 70mm fans on the side panel that blows to the video card/hdds but thats all.

Cons: The only real con is that there was 3 uniform scratch marks along with a small little dent on the side of the case. I used a microfiber towel with some water and the scratches came out. Maybe same thing bumped into it that left the marks and the small dent when packing, did not see any hits on the box that it came in. Good thing the dent can only be seen when holding it in the light at an angle.

The case is very very small you would need to pick your parts right.. lowpro cpu coolers and small video cards are a must with this case.. the air flow is some what bad but thats to be expected in a small case like this one. Im cutting it close with the gear thats in it.. temps are higher than I like but this not over heating at all.

kinda wish that the cables in the case were black. pow-hdd-led-usb 3.. etc etc . no biggie though . you cant see much in there with all the parts packed in.

Other Thoughts: Im overall happy with the case . I put parts that i had laying around in it. and it runs well .. look good next to my 50in tv on a hard wood floor.. I would like to get one more to make a small out of the way clean desktop for my room. but I hope it doesn't come with free dent next time.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, but un-refined.

Pros: Size, Style, Full sized Power Supply support, decent space for discreet graphics.

Cons: Power LED is really bright, cant see HDD LED behind it, Doesn't feel so professional.

Other Thoughts: This is not a beginners case, there is no easy plug anything its all tried and true screws and rubber shock absorbing parts. The only real down side to this case is it has a "made in Bubba's garage" feel to it. I was expecting a smooth polished feel instead its more of textured feel. It doesn't mess with its function as a case, and the design is good but It seems just a little unfinished.
