Great height and decent depth

Pros: I was looking for a mini-ITX case which could fit inside of my entertainment console in the living room. There was a height restriction of about eight inches and this case was just the right height. Build quality is pretty decent. The metal panels are rigid. There's plenty of room in the inside to work with. Like with any mini-ITX case in this size I recommend a modular or semi-modular power supply. Otherwise you'll be shoving the unused cables into a corner or empty area of the case when you're all done putting everything together. I've installed an ASRock H97 mini-ITX motherboard with an Intel Pentium G3258. I tested the space and installed a Corsair H60 AIO liquid cooler to the top panel. It all fit. The top vent area can also be used to mount a hard drive in case you don't attach a radiator to it or a case fan. There is room in the front of the case to attach a hard drive in the 5.25" drive bay and right underneath there's enough room for an SSD (which would sit right above the power supply). The length of the case is enough to fit most graphics cards. All the panels are removable, including the bottom. The front panel can be removed as well. Overall it has a good clean look and fits great in my entertainment console. The price was unbeatable, especially with the mail in rebate.

Cons: One concern is the paint on the metal panels. It looks great but be careful not to scratch it since the paint may come off if there's a hard scratch on it. Minor scuffs are not a problem but slightly noticeable. Another slight con would be the fan in the rear of the case. It appears to be an 80mm fan which uses a MOLEX connector. I would have preferred it be a 3-pin connector to attach to the motherboard and it be at least 92mm. Due to space limitation it lacks multiple mounting areas for hard drives especially if you plan on using an 120mm AIO cooler or case fan at the top of the case.

Other Thoughts: There were only a few cons but nothing really major to detract most buyers. The Pros outweigh the Cons in my opinion. The included PSU is not really a Con but not a Pro. It's good if it's in a basic build for someone who just needs a system to surf the web and watch YouTube. I pulled out the PSU and set it aside, and installed a better PSU for the type of system I was building. Again, not a con nor a pro. I consider it a free PSU which came with the case and would not turn that down. I'm loving RAIDMAX so far. This is my second RAIDMAX case and I really want to do a video review for my YouTube channel. I've already done one for the RAIDMAX Hybodus which in itself is a pretty good compact micro-ATX case.

Amazing deal, Small space

Pros: This case cost me only $35 and comes with a power supply! The case looks amazing on my desk with its sleek black design and mirrored black plastic front panel. Many places to put hard drives and ssds is also a big plus

Cons: The case fan included is, in my opinion, pretty loud. The un-populated fan mounting brackets allow for any sound to escape with ease. The power supply included it NOT modular, so cable management is quite a challenge.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this case to anyone who wants a small form factor case with decent design for cheap, however, the included power supply is not suitable for proper cable management, and a corner of the front panel will sometimes pop off because it is under a little tension due to the psu. a must when buying this case is a modular power supply and a decent know how of cable management.

Perfect case for high-power gaming!

Pros: Frankly, this case is great. It has TONS of ventilation and supports a full-length GPU (not enough room for SLI).

It is exactly what I wanted: a case that is large enough to contain a bluray drive, HDD, SDD, a Hyper EVO 212 fan, and GTX 970 GPU... but small enough to place onto the table. I wanted minimalism and step away from a traditional tower to a smaller form factor.

Build quality is excellent. The finish and fit is great and has a well-thought out design. It has various, creative mounting locations for your peripherals. Includes a 450W power supply!

Cons: The included screws did not fit appropriate devices, luckily I had a stash of my own. The user's manual is also worthless and uninformative / unclear. There are included HDD brackets, but gives little info on how/where to place them inside the case.

The 450W power supply that is included is cheap. It also does not contain an additional PCI-E power connector, but there are conversion plugs you can buy for just a few dollars.

Space inside is tight... it takes a patient person to perform proper cable management.

Other Thoughts: I'd recommend a modular power supply when installing your computer. Firstly because it's tight inside the case, but also to buy a better, higher quality PSU.

Overall this is a fun case to build. It takes creativity and planning in order to properly construct an awesome gaming platform (i.e. how to position components, how to route cables, where to mount fans. Fortunately, the biggest constraints are GPU size and PSU cables. Otherwise, this case will let you do what you wish!

Not terrible, but also not great.

Pros: Small, compact size. Power supply included. Main chassis frame seems sturdy, edges are smoothed out.

Cons: The panels (top, sides, bottom) don't fit together terribly well - the seams between panels and then between the panels and the front face are not flush or even. The fan on the power supply can get loud enough to sound like an airplane taking off - particularly if loading from CD/DVD drive. Front panel wiring does not play nice with disc drive installation - was concerned some of the cables would break. No dust filters.

Other Thoughts: For $50, this case is good for a computer built for small/elementary age children - which is what I used it for. The power supply is adequate for it's needs, but you do get what you pay for. While everything works and fits together with no issues, the trade-off on the price is that you don't get that sleek, seam-matching, quiet(er), case with dust filters. You get a power supply that's rated, according to it's stickers at 80+ bronze, but that tends to be noisy.

But you also get a small, compact, relatively sturdy case that won't take up too much space on a desk. The actual black finish seems to be decent, and the thumb screws in the back holding each panel on the chassis are an unexpected surprise.

I had to remove the power supply from the chassis to install the majority of the parts in the computer. A 3.5" hard disk can be mounted underneath the disk drive using the supplied brackets, but this has resulted in the drive more or less resting on the top of the power supply. A better option would be to mount the drive on the included bracket at the top rear of the case if you don't plan on adding an additional fan or liquid cooler there.

Amazing Deal

Pros: All of the panels come off: Both sides, top, bottom, and front.
Room for 2 HDDs and an SSD. Decent powersupply included. Not the hardest case to build in (I'm looking at you Bitfenix Prodigy). Well packaged, it arrived with zero damage. All the side panels line up, nothing it out of square.

Cons: Did not come packed in bacon.

Other Thoughts: This case is a steal at it's regular price of $45. I got it 15% off with a promo code and just mailed off the $10 rebate today. As long as there is no funny business with the rebate, I give this case a solid 5 eggs, I am just floored by what $28 buys. I built a mini-itx dedicated game server into this case. Pentium G3258 with 8GB of ram in it and there is plenty of ventilation in this case for some moderate overclocking. I may replace the PSU with a Corsair CX430 next time it goes on sale, the PSU in this has to be pretty cheap for the case to have only cost $28 and yet be of such high quality.
