Pros: Ample slots for fans, cable routing and 2.5" drives. I've built two machines using this case and I never felt cramped while working with it.
Cons: Drive bays aren't tool-less, which I have seen on comparable cases. Not really a complaint but this is a required field.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Xigmatek CCM-23ABX-U01 (Aeos) Black SECC, Plastic Micro-ATX Computer Case
Pros: All kinds of little extras and features you wouldn't expect with a case this cheap.
Thumbscrews, bottom 2.5" mount, painted interior and screws, an included fan.
Cons: Minor build quality issues you'd expect with a sub-$50 case.
Front fan is not a Xigmatek branded fan (I couldn't find a retail version) and it was the loudest thing in the case. Can't complain much considering it's basically free.
Other Thoughts: Already ordering another.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: DEEPCOOL STEAM CASTLE (WHITE) Unique Steam Punk Style With Side Window 200mm Fan(Front) Micro ATX / Mini-ITX +120mm Fan(Rear)+4 Magic Controllable LED Lights (Top) SGCC+PLASTIC (ABS)
Pros: Sturdy, well-built, lovely aesthetics. All the interior components have a nice matte black finish. They also made as many of the interior cables black as they could (though the included rear fan cable isn't sleeved).
The various components all come apart easily if you want to give it an alternate paint job.
Cons: Being sturdy makes it a little heavy for a compact case. It's also not really that compact, since it can fit micro-ATX boards flat. The weight and large footprint make it not a very good portable option, which is a little sad when it is a pretty case that you want to show off.
Other Thoughts: I bought the white version because it was on sale and I planned to paint it anyways. It's more art-deco than "Steam punk" but who cares when it looks so good?READ FULL REVIEW
