Pretty nifty. 06/19/2014
This review is from: DIYPC HTPC-MiniCube-S Silver Aluminum Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case
Small. Well built. Nice brushed silver finish. Packaged well and arrived with no marks.
Side fan screws seem to be sized for 80mm instead of the stated 70mm? The side with the ventilation does not cover the entire side. DIYPC's red model addresses this issue, yet has no drilling's for fans on the side (easy to drill your own if you want though). I like the silver so I wish they had that these issues addressed in a silver case. Heat is an issue with a full size ATX PSU (partially my fault for not getting a smaller PSU).
Get a small PSU. I recommend waiting to buy extra fans until you see how everything fits. You can not fit fans on the side unless you have a small PSU, there is not enough clearance (less than 10mm with full size ATX PSU). Also note, if you choose to have a larger graphics card in your setup, a normal HD will block almost all air to your GFX card, I recommend sticking to 1 SD drive for your system and using external storage for anything else.
It is a nice case and it is cheap for what it offers!!!!!
Other case manufactures have also copied this design. The original manufacturer must have sold their patent? Unless they it was straight up reverse engineered it... possibly.
