Pros: I love the small footprint this case leaves. I bought my case last year for myself. Put together myself a Gaming Rig that I could travel with. It works perfect, I fit this case, and a small monitor, mouse/keyboard and gamepad in one bag. It can fit a lot of items inside the case and gets good airflow if done right.
Cable management is also easy to do in this case. I had no problems with organizing the cables to allow airflow.
Cons: I bought mine before the 130 model with support of Radiator.
but I don't like the front of the 130 mesh, so I bought my Wife the 120 one still. I didn't do custom loop,
Other Thoughts: I had to use a power tool to remove the hard drive cage to fit the radiator for water cooling. .
Just recently bought one for my wife, and I'm building her a gaming rig too. She liked mine and wanted an upgrade. Both mine and my wifes, are custom painted too. I did it myself, very easy to paint case and really mod it to what one likes.
I did a corsair H70 in my build, and a H80 in my wifes. Bought myself a hotswap bay for harddrives
In both cases I have "k" model CPUs, I know both aren't overclock supporting motherboards, but when I can get a "k" model for an i5 I'll get it.
For example of what you can fit in the case basic over view
Radeon HD 7970
8GB RAM @ 1600
RAID 0 240 (2x 120GB SSD) Boot
RAID 0 128 (2x 64GB SSD) game Drive
RAID 0 2TB (2x 1TB Drives) Storage.
(I wanted to have fun)
and inside i have USB LED cabling, and a PC xbox controller adapter that I fit inside so I don't have too many cables outside.
Radeon HD 7970
8GB RAM @ 1600
mSATA 256 boot
and 3TB storage
also has the microsoft controller adapter and LED USB lights in case (I route the 3 cables out from the rubber grommet on both cases)
This review is from: ASUS P8H77-I LGA 1155 Intel H77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Had this board for just about a week at time of review. Its been used for heavy gaming already. Its running a stock 2600k. I knew I couldn't overclock, but had the 2600k as a spare CPU. Using this board for a mini mobile gaming rig.
Other Thoughts: Good boardREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Small, bought it because I was going to make a tiny mobile gaming rig for myself. Good airflow, CPU temps idle around 26C. While hitting mid 40s during load. Max I've seen (Prime 95) was it hit 50C. Fits full sized PSU + GPU (Idles around 36C and max ~50s).
Overall build quality I liked.
Other Thoughts: Very glad I went with this case. It allowed me to do what I want with a small form factor. Still giving me the power I need for when I'm gaming.
2600k (stock speeds)
Corsair Vengeance 1600mhz 8gb 4x2 (running at 1333)
750 Rosewill PSU
Asus P8H77-i Motherboard
