Pros: It's cheap and works in my rack. The 2u profile is able to house a standard power supply, plus many low profile components. The small footprint doesn't overcrowed. The system is light enough to mount on a relay rack, or by it's ears in a normal rack. I'll probably purchase another one to replace a 4U box.
Cons: As others have mentioned, I'd suggest changing the two front fans. The current stock ones produce a large amount of noise. For home users this gets annoying quickly. I'd suggest purchasing a low dBA / high CFM fan if you're NOT placing this in a data center.
Other Thoughts: As mentioned use a power supply with a rear fan. A Scythe "Big Shuriken" heat sink will fit in the case. The stock AMD heat sink wasn't cutting it.. I created a air tube from plastic and use one front fan to blow air in the direction of the CPU. Otherwise it'll get a bit warm in the case.
