Pros: uATX with USB-C
Cons: Only issue I had is I had to hard-set my PC3400/CAS14 RAM in BIOS. The XMP settings were read correctly, but the RAM wasn't running at specs.
Other Thoughts: This had the features I was looking for: uATX, USB 3.1, M.2 PCI-e x4,READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 3200@CAS14 is theoretically 5.04% slower than 2400@CAS10; but this is stable and 25% less expensive.
Other Thoughts: My BIOS had to be configured. The JEDEC/XMP setting wasn't correct. My userbenchmark dot com rating is 105% without any tweaking. Z170 on asrock extreme4 uATX.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Thermaltake Core V21 Black Extreme Micro ATX Cube Chassis CA-1D5-00S1WN-00
Pros: It's nice, the side-panel controls are where I want them, has attachments for a huge amount of cooling and 2.5" disks. The 200mm fan is nice.
Cons: Loud. A 2500k/7950 build that was a bit annoying inside a thick, front-to-back-cooled case is loud (closed-cell headphones can't mask it) in this case due to 5 sides being perforated metal.
3 3.5" slots is more than I need, but this case has room for 9. I'm unsure if I'm complaining about wasted space or lack of cages.
The drive cage should be able to hold the disk rails when it's taken out of the case.
Drive cage should be mounted sideways.
Other Thoughts: Not a tough case. The window shouldn't cover the bottom-front of the case, which is where the wiring is not straight-forward to hide.READ FULL REVIEW
