Pros: -Small, Compact
-Low Price, good deal for the right application
-Detailed BIOS, easy-to-use
-USB 3.0 and HDMI included
Cons: -No software (BIOS) RAID support -- this is kind of my fault for not checking on it from the start, but worth mentioning
-Only has 4x SATA3 ports...which get used up quickly -- again my bad for not thinking it through all the way
-Onboard CPU fan already starting to run louder after a week of use, which is a bit annoying.
Other Thoughts: I bought this to try to "save money" in an attempt to "not go overboard" like I usually would -- this is a good example of why I tend to (and ought to) go overboard. Due to the first two cons I listed above, I am having to upgrade to a different mobo and CPU after about a week of use. (Happily, this solves the problem of the third con.)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This case is huge! (actually, quite a bit larger than I imagined it would be) -- space, space, and more space! Fans everywhere (included).
I bought it as a starter case for my "beginner build" home server project, but it will work for expansion for years, of this I have no doubt.
Cons: As it could be a pro OR a con depending on your application, this case is BIG, so please take it into consideration if you're looking for something on the smaller side.
Other Thoughts: Other than builds that require a very small footprint, I think I will always buy this case in the future.READ FULL REVIEW
