Pros: Roomier than other mITX cases, yet still only 5.1" tall on its side (more if you add the rubber feet)
Full size optical drive and HDD
Included power supply is relatively quiet (except on startup)
Cons: The entire case was covered in anti-scratch film EXCEPT the one part you don't want scratches on: the mirrored front. It was a little scratched on arrival.
Some interior metal was bent.
I agree with all ventilation cons mentioned by others.
Lots of space for additional drives, but no mounting place.
Other Thoughts: The case does include ventilation holes now, but only toward the rear of the case. I will probably add more holes and a 120MM fan to the front, although both the case and fan would require modification.
Not a bad case for the price and a good starter, but needs modifications to improve airflow and better utilize interior space. Buy this if you don't care about good ventilation or don't mind tinkering with it after purchase.
This review is from: Intel Core 2 Duo E7200 Wolfdale Dual-Core 2.53GHz LGA 775 65W BX80571E7200 Processor
Pros: Dang cheap for excellent performance.
Other Thoughts: Compared to my e6600, this is a little faster and a little cooler. Comes with a smaller aluminum heatsink, and because I had upgrade the heatsink on my e6600, I used it's stock heatsink which is larger with a copper core on this proc. Easy to keep cool, which makes it quiet and overclockable.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Slick design (black, gold fan grille, clear fan).
Modular, with a nice case for unused cables.
Caught it with a great rebate.
Cons: No fan speed controls (if you care about that sort of thing).
Other Thoughts: Bought this for my brother for his new rig. I was so impressed that I wanted to swap it for mine (he said no).
It's easy to get caught up in the cheapo power supplies, but once you compare specs, build quality and reputation, Enermax dominates.
