Pros: Small compact Micro ATX case
120 MM fan out front, 80 MM fan in back
Packaged with a 450 watt PSU
3.5 inch external , good spot for USB 3.0 and card reader
Cons: Tall ram combs not allowed with 3.5 inch HDD, may fit with SSD. Short combs OK
Other Thoughts: The layout is tight, but I expected that from a mini tower, micro ATX combination. I built with an MSI FM2-A85/AMD A6-5600 to eliminate the need for a video card. There are enough fans to keep even a more serious setup cool. I turned the rear fan to draw into the case for a positive case pressure hoping to cut down on dust being drawn into every crevice.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Dead Silent - No fan
PCI-e X16 match
Cons: Tall, won't fit with side mounted case fan
Other Thoughts: We have two of them! My wife's AMD4170 Asus 990 turns graphics numbers of 7.2 with this card on a DVI monitor and my AMD8150 on a MSI 990 board shows 7.4 on an HDMI monitor. That is far more than we will ever need!! I hooked my PC to our 50 inch TV and rocked some games with the HDMI also driving the audio.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MSI Nighthawk IN-9390 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Excellent ventilation, even without the top fans. With AMD's Cool and Quiet running the 120 mm fans are at idle most of the time and the 200 MM fan is dead silent. The tool less clips for the drive bays worked very well and enough tie down points for cable management.
Cons: Cheap card reader, installed a better one. Goofy thin fans for the top are a bad joke. No air filter underneath the bottom mount fan. Missing second USB 3.0 port on the front panel, the connection uses two UBS 3.0s but only gives you one.
Other Thoughts: MSI 990FXA topped with an AMD 8150 very seldom warms up enough to let AMD's Cool and Quiet dial up the fan speeds. An ASUS 2 Gig fan less video card right next to the 200MM fan is a perfect installationREAD FULL REVIEW
