This review is from: Thermaltake SD101 VP11821N2U Black Steel Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case 180W Power Supply

Pros:

The case is quite heavy for it's tiny size, making it quite rugged. The fact that it takes standard optical drives is an amazing option for a miniITX case of its size. The layout it intuitive, and the parts disassemble without much thought. I used it for a HTPC/DVR build and it perfect for the job. The power supply is quiet, along with the included case fan. I coupled the fan to my ASUS H87I-PLUS, and overall the system is almost completely silent. The front face and the overall design of the case is quite nice, and it appeals to me in the way a Noctua fan appeals to me, with it's simple elegance.

Cons:

The USB 3.0 front header cable is exceptionally (and needlessly) long. It was obviously designed for a normal form factor case, and it actually made placing a card into the PCI-Express slot trouble-some.

Other Thoughts:

There is very little headroom for a CPU cooler, so I used the Noctua NH-L9i which fits beautifully beneath my optical drive. Coupled to my ASUS H87I-PLUS running the ASUS AI Suite 3 Fan Xpert on silent, the case is completely silent at idle and barely wispers at 100% CPU load.
