General information

Apex’s MI-008 case is a great choice for instances where you don’t have a lot of space for a system. It would work well in kiosks or as a video wall controller. You could also use it to control information signs in a hotel or airport. Its small size would also make it a good choice for a HTPC.

The drive bay housing tilts up for easy installation. There are two external bays, one 5.25” and one 3.5”. There is also a 3.5” hard drive bay. The front panel also has two audio jacks and two USB ports. Once everything is installed put the lid back on and you’re good to go.

Great case! Make sure you get a low profile CPU cooler 5/17/2020 9:33:12 PM

Pros: - Nice and small.. very efficient use of space!
- Has space for 2 full-size HDDs (3 if you mount one in the CD/DVD drive bay, even more if you get crafty)
- Appears to have space for a GPU (I didn't use one in this build)
- Comes with a super quiet power supply

Cons: - Wish it came with a case fan to vent the air out, but it's easy enough to put your own in.
- If I were to change anything, I'd use an external PSU like the PicoPSU in order to save space in the case.

Overall Review: It's good! Stock coolers will NOT fit though, as the power supply is in exactly the right spot to get in the way. I've confirmed that this Noctua low profile heatsink/fan combo fits underneath the PSU with a couple centimeters of clearance: https://www.newegg.com/noctua-nh-l9a-am4-low-profile-quiet-cooler-for-amd-ryzen-cpus-and-apus/p/13C-0005-00145?Item=9SIAADY6A94515

Not compatible with CPU fan 4/17/2020 12:13:35 PM

Pros: I suppose this would be good for those who are not including CPU fans in their build. Seemed like a decent case.

Cons: Poor space distribution means that the case is not compatible with my CPU heatsink fan.

Overall Review: Alright product, I was not satisfied.

Great Computer Case BUT bad instructions 4/11/2020 10:53:40 AM

Pros: This case has a quiet power supply. Adequate room for a hard drive and an optical drive. It has holes for on-board wi-fi antenna mounting. The front cover conceals the optical drive, the usb and sound ports. It also has a good deal of room inside for wire routing and storage.

Cons: I read the instructions and step 2 says "Remove bezel by pulling from the bottom." I did this only to have all four bezel clips break off. Instead it should have read "Press in on the bezel clips to release them from the metal cage."

Overall Review: I think that this is an excellent case for small builds.

Functional, low cost, best for fanless CPUs with 3.5" and 5.25" drives. In a word: Adequate. 3/1/2020 11:14:53 AM

Pros: - Low cost
- PSU fan is partially above the CPU, which helps cool a fanless CPU.
- Plenty of airflow cuts in the sides
- Clean, nice appearance from the front.
- Concealed USB ports stay clean and out of the way

Cons: - Power supply may conflict with CPU fan. Low profile CPU fans can clear the PSU, but only barely. Works best with fanless CPUs.
- Metal bends easily. Can be useful if/when the PSU bends into your CPU fan.
- 2.5" drives won't mount without adapters. Bays are a single 3.5" and a single 5.25".
- Larger than necessary, but somehow also cramped inside.

Overall Review: I have two of these cases now in different generations. They work, but aren't great. If what you need is a basic, low cost mini-ITX case with a single 3.5" drive, it'll be fine. If you need 2.5" drive mounts or want a compact case look elsewhere.

Good Mini ITX Case 1/25/2019 3:11:40 PM

Pros: Well made, nice front bezel, 250 watt power supply. All wire leads are plenty long enough (the front panel leads reach to the back plate), power supply has 2 SATA power plugs and 3 ISA plugs, as well as a floppy plug. Metal parts in case have rolled edges, so there is no sharp edges.

Cons: No reset button, but that is rarely needed.
Newer Mini-ITX boards probably need more vertical space, and the PS does not have an 8 pin 12V connector (only 4 pin), and besides, may be under powered (at 250W) as well.

Overall Review: The metal part of the case and power supply is identical to Rosewill's offering, with the main difference being the front bezel. The power supply (as it comes) is mounted with the fan to the top - right against the cover - so it's not going to draw much air. I just invert it.

No Longer Great! 9/21/2018 4:44:22 PM

Pros: Great for 8 years ago!

Cons: Dated now. need better design to compete with other options.

Overall Review: Bought this unit back in 2010 for an HTPC. Followed some HTPC guide and it worked out. had a 1TB WD Green drive, an AMD A4 APU, and a BluRay player. it worked flawlessly for 4 or so years. But now it is just dated. I'm surprised they are still trying to sell this!

Regardless, I think there are better options out there... 2 major issues I have with this case: modern APUs from AMD (Ryzen 5 2400G) stock fans are way too large. the 250W PSU Ford not have the 8-PIN power connector. Seems modern MOBOs need the 20-PIN and 8-PIN. This small form factor unit doesn't provide a 4-PIN adapter thus it wont work by default. You will need to buy an adapter, another SMF PSU, or another case. For the CPU fan, you will need to buy a SMF fan... or another case..

Nice case - where does the CPU fan go? 4/4/2018 2:49:19 PM

Pros: Case is well put together and small.

Cons: The Ryzen 5 cpu with the Wraith Stealth cooler will not fit in the case. Any reasonable size cpu fan will be air starved if it does fit because the power supply is right above the cpu and blocking the air flow.
Only has a 4 wire plug for the 12v connector - newer boards have 8 wire and you will need to buy an adapter

Overall Review: Wanted it to work - just not going to happen. RMA and a different case.
