Athenatech A100SC.200 Black/ Silver Steel MicroATX Desktop Computer Case 200W Power Supply
  • Steel MicroATX Desktop
  • USB / Audio Front Ports
  • 200W Power Supply
  • 1 External 5.25" Drive Bays
  • 2 Internal 3.5" Drive Bays

Pros:

If you want to build a miniature gaming tower with full functionality, this is about as small as you can get. I am running core2duo E6550 and an 8800GT, two hard disks, PCI sound card, etc. If you don't need more than one optical drive this case rocks. The side vent is perfectly placed for both aesthetics and functionality, as are the slide out drive trays and folding 5.25" tray.

Cons:

All of the metal components of this case are perfect, however the plastic bits on the front panel are quite flimsey. The clear bezel cracked and promptly fell off, followed quickly by the silver overlay and lower accessory door. Parts are glued on loosely and you can expect them to fall off. Also, the power LED was so amazingly bright that I had to unplug it to fall asleep with this unit in my bedroom. The black paint scratches easily revealing white primer underneath.

Other Thoughts:

I replaced the stock power supply with a very nice name brand 350W unit. I have had no power or cooling problems with this case, even with the components listed above. The Cons I have listed are not particularly significant, since I have seen basically 0 competition for this case. I would say this case is a strong BUY.
