This review is from: DIYPC V3Plus-B Black Aluminum Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case

Pros:

All-metal case
Easy setup with disassembled case

Cons:

Very tight fit inside (of course) with little guidance as to CPU cooler height limitation.
Lacks top ventilation which would dramatically aid airflow.

Other Thoughts:

I love the look and small-ness of this case. I would not recommend it for any application that needs a graphics card that requires a fan, but for what it is, it works perfectly.

I built a small print server from an old mini-ITX board with LGA 775 chip. It stays quiet and out of the way and allows for much easier printer sharing.

If cooling is an issue for you, if you can spare the extra 3.5" hard drive spot, there are some hard drive coolers which can mount in the same space (make sure the cooler mounts on the four holes on the underside of the hard drive) which can draw in air from the ventilation on the bottom of the case. For example:

It will make it a little louder, but if you can find a HDD cooler with a larger fan, it isn't so much of an issue.
