After hundredss of times upgrading the insides of this case, it still comes apart without falling apart and goes back together right every time
At first, I thought it was flimsy. It isn't.
Perfect size for me.
Runs cool and silent with just the CPU fan and the PSU fan, since I learned to properly use the partition plate.
It ate CPU coolers until I started sealing the air holes on the partition plate with duct tape.
I learned from burning out a CPU cooler's fan that extra care is needed to make sure the cables to the DVD burner stay out of the fan. Duh.
The stick-on feet really suck, but I got some aftermarket feet that work great.
After I learn to administrate a Smoothwall firewall I built from spare parts, I'm buying another of these cases for an Ubuntu Server/WordPress/Moodle webserver that fits my standup desk.
A $7.00 Arctic Cooling Alpine GT 64 has kept my AMD A8-5500 happy for 6 months or so now.
It just got an ASRock FM2A88M motherboard and I'm way happy with the way the machine works now.
This is a helluva long way from the Sinclair ZX80 I started out with in 1979.
