4 out of 5 eggsThis case ROCKS!

Pros: Beautiful case. Small, light, the carrying handle is probably THE reason why this one caught my eye. Although the glowing, etched, front panel didn't hurt either. :-) This case has room for a pair of 10.5" graphics cards with a simple mod to the hard drive cage (drill new holes in the bottom to move it over”).

Cons: Too EXPENSIVE!!! In its stock form, airflow/heat can be a problem. But if the right components are used, the heat is manageable. The case is designed for the Silverstone ST1000 or larger power supply. Because the ST1000 has a GIANT 135mm fan in the bottom that sits just above the processor heat sink. It exhausts the heat from the processor fan out the back very nicely. You also need to buy the Silverstone RL-FX121 fan (also available here on Newegg) to put in the rear of this box. It mounts right in perfectly and it helps significantly in venting heat from the MoBo NB and SB chips. The front left edge has a large empty area, that I nibbled a round hole out and install a fan and grill that pulls fresh air into the front for exhaust out the back (via the power supply fan and the FX121).

Why bother with all this work you ask? Cuz the finished product is one BAD “little box” that EVERYONE stops to look at. ;-)

Other Thoughts: It took a small amount of relatively simple modding, but was WELL WORTH THE EFFORT!

Have recently updated mine to the following configuration:

Silverstone Strider ST1000 supply
Silverstone RL-FX121 rear exhaust fan
ASUS Rampage II Gene
Intel I7 920 (stock speed)
12gb of Corsair Dominator 1600
2 EVGA GTX 285 Graphics cards (stock speed)

May try to UL a video later...

5 out of 5 eggsGreat looking case

Pros: -Great looking box; nice design and feels professionally made
-Feels sturdy, with a solid handle
-Removable HDD cage
-Includes a firewire/usb/audio connector which is nice, and those wires come wrapped which saves me from wrapping them myself.

Cons: -No motherboard tray (it's not supposed to have one, but it would be nice)
-HDD cage comes loose easily, even with it being fully tightened.
-Price
-Only 1 5.25" drive bay

Other Thoughts: I replaced the lighting to do a red theme instead of the traditional blue. It was a fun project.

3 out of 5 eggsThis Case

Pros: Portable with nicely constructed handle.
Aesthetically pleasing look.
Case works well for a low heat profile duo core, or a lower end quad core processor.

Cons: This case is not capable of providing decent cooling with mid to higher end components without significant modification and therefor would only make a mediocore lan party/gamer computer.
Low processor heatsink/fan clearance.
Any processor output over 95 Watts is too much heat output for the case design.
PSU & processor cooler compete for airflow.
Not worth the listed price. Only worth a fraction of it.
One nearly has to remove the mobo to change out the hard drives, or at least all components attached to the board.

Other Thoughts: If looking for a decent SFF lan party/gaming case get the SILVERSTONE SG04B-H Black Aluminum panels, SECC structure MicroATX Mid Tower instead.
I spent months trying to rectify the heat related issues before giving up on it and deciding to rebuild from the ground up. Of course having an extreme processor in this thing doesn't help :)

3 out of 5 eggsScotty

Pros: Cool design, neat front face plate glow, looks in general.

Cons: Too small! Pain to put everything in it. Then to boot, had overheating issues. It was do to the space problem and not enough airflow. The top of the heat sink was less than a centimeter away from the bottom of the power supply. It was a stock heat sink too.

Other Thoughts: Nice case, but with all of the heat a gaming rig puts out, not the best idea for this.

5 out of 5 eggsCase pwns!

Pros: Solid handle! can't stress that enough as it's half the reason for buying this. If not, look at the SST-SG01, basically same thing redesigned abit better. Or even the SST-TJ08 which would probably be the next best thing I'd look into.

Current setup is a Q6600 overclocked to 3Ghz w/ just OEM fans. I got the revision G0 since supposed to be better at OC, glad I did. Ordered that from other vendor just to be sure, as newegg doesn't specify that revision.

Moving from a ideq which I shoved a 7800GS into with much difficulty, this case seems to have a ton of room for any hardware with the exception of large CPU coolers.

Cons: Agree that cooling could have been better with little effort on there end, but all things considered I'm quite impressed.

Plastic caps on the MB pegs, as mentioned already. No bay covers.

I'd prefer no side windows. They just never hold up well, especially if you carry it around alot like myself.

If you can afford the short cables/modular PSU to go with it, then you can afford this case. I wouldn't bother without them.

Other Thoughts: I'll write another review once I get all new fans, including the Zalman 7000, and upgrade the RAM.

Doubt I'll OC higher, at this point I'm more than happy. But I would like to lower the temps.

Poor choice, I went with 800 DDR2. I should have gotten faster chips, 1066 or the like. Then I wouldn't have to drop the multipler to OC the CPU, since these have trouble once they hit about 900.

Case = 41D02FCB11W
MB = GA-G33M-DS2R
Proc = BX80562Q6600
RAM = ADQVE1B16K
Video = BFGR88640GTSOC2E
Power = ST75F + SST-PP03

4 out of 5 eggsFragbox Update

Pros: Update to my lower review: Still a decent SFF case. Very Cool lighting (when it works), got rid of the cathode lighting on the faceplate and installed a LED Bright Blue strip. Could land aircraft at night with it!

Cons: Hard to work with. Yes the case gets very hot compared to other cases. Talked to a FNW rep who stated that it was normal to see CPU tems around 50-60 degrees C under load.

Other Thoughts: Had no lock up issues at first when playing games. Was using a 8800 GTS 640 MB with no problems, switched to a Gecube ATI X1950 Gecube so I could run SLI in my other computer. Lock-ups were frequent. Reset the fan speed on the video card to 100% and the lock up issues went away. I would suggest when using this case to get a video card that has a dual slot heatsink to blow the fan out of the case instead of around the inside. Last thought, used a X-connect power supply with modular flex-force cable...should have used a silverstone one with the short cable set...would have been easier on my hands...

3 out of 5 eggsfragbox

Pros: looks good, good support, solid construction

Cons: COOLING IS HORRIBLE!!! I bought this kit 2 years ago and had an amd fx-55 processor, 2gb ram, nividia 7800 gtx and it would constantly shut down while playing games, often the processor temp was near 60 celcius. too expensive

4 out of 5 eggsDecent SFF Gaming PC

Pros: FNW name at a lower price point than OEM, looks cool with all the blue lights. Well cooled with included fans and case setup. Had the system up and running in a half a day with three day "burn in period" with no major problems save one...

Cons: Bllue lighting in face plate no longer works after only a few days...not sure what the problem is, maybe the inverter went out?, No documentation and little to no datebase on the Internet to work with this case. Need to install the plastic caps over the motherboard peg yourself.

Other Thoughts: Definently not the case to work with for someone with large than average hands, some edges are a little sharp inside the chasis and leave more than a few scrapes. Overall a decent rig, but not one that I would endeavor to rebuild...Intel E6600, 400 GB, 2 GB Ram, EVGA 8800GTS (which was a VERY tight fit).

5 out of 5 eggs"The Coolest LAN Party Case"

System:
* Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 (No OC)
* Zalman CNPS 7000B-Cu LED Cooler
* ATI Radeon X1900XTX 512MB DDR3
* ASUS P5B-VM with FragBox II MicroATX case
* 2x1GB, PC2-4300, CL=3-3-3-8, Geil Ultra Low Latency

=============================
"One Can Never Have Enough"

Cheers!

Cons: 1) Price is too high, especially with no power supply.
2) Could've done it better by putting a fan on the front to push the hot air to the back . Which I've done it myself. Other than that nothing else.

Other Thoughts: I highly recommend using a Ultra X-connect X2 power supply with flex-force cable...and trust me you'll thank me later.

Enjoy!
