Nice case 08/13/2010
This review is from: IN WIN wavy Black Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case 120W Power Supply
- SMALL footprint. This is one of the few Mini-ITX cases that has room for FOUR drives (one of which can be a full-size optical drive!) and it's still tiny. It's a clever layout and design.
- Pretty sturdy construction, In-Win always makes a sturdy, well-finished case.
- Many cables included, including a slimline CD drive converter cable, which is very nice.
- No separate power adapter brick. Built-in 120W power supply.
- Relatively generous room for stock CPU fans, even if you have an optical drive installed.
- Front panel doors are a bit flimsy. I'm waiting to see how long they last.
- Tight fit, to be sure! Especially if you use a slimline optical drive. Getting the drive and front panel to align perfectly can be maddening.
- Proprietary power supply, this doesn't bother me, but it might bother you.
- Fans a bit loud, but nothing to write home about. If you are using for media PC, you might want to consider replacing them. For desk/office use, I doubt you would notice.
- Power connectors are super short. Anything more than a single hard drive (including any optical drive) is going to require some power cable extenders/splitters.
I used an Intel board (N82E16813121381) and Intel CPU (N82E16819116076) and had few problems, other than things being a super tight fit of course. No clearance issues with the stock Intel fan. Great little office PC.
