Fun little case but no big fans! 10/09/2010
This review is from: APEX TX-381-C Black Steel Micro ATX Tower Computer Case
Small. Has a handle. Holds drives pretty effectively. Has nice top-front mounted USB and sound ports with a little door to cover them. Relatively light without being cheap-looking.
This case was used to build a portable Starcraft II computer which uses an overclocked i5-760 and a Palit GTX 460. The case held all of the components except for my Hyper 212 fan. The tips of the heat pipes go beyond where the case ends because the motherboard sits on rails that are slightly above the back surface. Also, you will have to ditch the CPU fan chute if you want to use a stand-up heatpipe fan.
The handle comes in very handy and the case is light, even though my power supply, CPU heatsink and video card are not. Just make sure to use a 92 mm heatsink-fan unit and you will be in good shape.
