This review is from: DIYPC MiniQ7-B USB 3.0 w/Dual Red Fans Black SECC ATX Mini Tower Computer Case
I purchased to fit an ATX mobo and GPU (needed to be tall enough). Everything fit easily (standoffs included) and was easy to work with. Had a fun time building.
Comes with SSD power cable.
The fan power cables came with a coupler so you can run both case fans off one molex cable.
Front red LED if you're into that kind of thing.
The power button gets stuck sometimes and needs to be tapped to pop back out. (power button is the red square on the front)
The loudest fan is my GPU fan so no complaint about case fan noise.
It would be difficult to install a second HDD. The second HDD mounts on the bottom of the case (mount not included) and would also block the bottom vent.
The instructions included is a poor quality image printed on a single sheet of paper (pretty much useless).
The expansion ports are break-off so plan your placement before you pop one out and leave a hole (although one expansion slot bracket is included)
Power supply is bottom-front (not bottom-rear) mounted which works out fine, but it didn't come with recommended fan placement. i.e fan pointed inside to pull air from inside the case or point fan towards front to pull air from outside the case. I chose to pull from inside to create better airflow. Matter of preference I suppose. The power cord still plugs into the normal spot on the rear of the computer - the case has a female to male power cord extender routed to the front to plug in the power supply.
I didn't install a optical drive, but the drive door pushes through a case flap when it opens.
Overall good case, I would buy again for a cheap effective build.
(-1 egg for power button, 2nd HDD placement, & instructions...probably should be more of a 4.5/5)
