APEX Black Steel DS-539 Micro ATX Media Center / HTPC Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Decent Little Case 10/10/2014

This review is from: APEX Black Steel DS-539 Micro ATX Media Center / HTPC Case

Pros: Decent layout and size, set-up was fairly easy. Pretty good for such an inexpensive case.
Keeps pretty cool

Cons: 1. Some of the metal edges are a little sharp
2. One USB 2.0 slot in front not working (could be MB but doubt it). After full assembly, not worth RMA since still have 5 USB 2.) and 4 USB 3.0 working.
3. MB Backplane does not fit snugly
4. See note below

Other Thoughts: If you buy this case, definitely also buy an SATA 3 cable with a right angle connector. The drive cage is very close to the edge of case, so a straight connector will not allow the cover to close.
I replaced the stock 80MM fan with a quieter Cooler Master fan from Newegg. Today have been running the PC for 6 hours loading software and updating Win 7 and it has stayed pretty cool (running stock Intel fan on a Core i5 3570K-not OC'd)

ARCTIC 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Good price; nice looking unit; small and light; easy installation; seems quite fast; only one USB port needed to power.

Cons: Minor--SSD fits a little loosely (need to put a very thin layer of foam sheeting in to hold snugly), but I tested with an old SATA 2.5" HD from my notebook and it fit very nicely.

  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: 1.Nice size (Smaller than my old USB 2 Thermaltake
2. USB 3
3. Good price and free shipping

Cons: Minor Cons-
1. Not particularly fast for USB 3
2. Yet another USB 3 cable connection (the third I now have)
3. No eject button, so have to be careful in taking out a drive

Other Thoughts: Just a note: Blue indicator light in front is NOT the power indicator light. Only goes on when you have an active USB connection.
