Pros: Compact, neat, intuitive, beautiful, well built
Cons: None at all
Overall Review: Im thoroughly impressed with this case. I have slowly been downsizing my rigs over the years, with last year being the year I finally made the jump to a tiny sub-20L ITX case in my main build. While I love the compact size, its an absolute nightmare to do maintenance on. Because of this, I decided to go a little bigger for this PC.
I chose this case because of all the great things Ive heard about Jonsbo in the SFFPC community, and boy did it deliver! There isnt a bit of wasted space in there and its an absolute pleasure to build in. It fits a giant Dark Rock Pro 4 CPU cooler and a full length GPU with ease, and I was able to stuff 5 fans into it for great airflow. My 3080 rarely goes above 70C under load and my 12400F doesnt touch 60C.
The reversible side panels look clean and are a welcome addition, plus the metal side seems to have some light sound dampening foam. All cables were easily routable and it was honestly surprising how well a full ATX power supply fit inside.
If youre looking to downsize your build but dont want to fully commit to the hassle and expenses that ITX bring, I definitely checking this case out. Its the perfect case for an mATX build and makes no sacrifices for its size.
Pros: - Truly compact case
- Build quality feels good
- Great part compatibility
- Looks great
- Solid customer support
Cons: Cable management is incredibly difficult
- Some of the specs could be communicated better (USB-C doesn't use a Type-E A Key, 325mm height is *without* feet attached)
- Very constrained if you're filling the case to capacity
- No fans included, which feels pretty bad for a case in this price bracket
Overall Review: Problems first.
Cable management was quite difficult. There's space directly underneath the PSU, and a small area behind it, and that's basically it. Had to really contort and tie my PSU cables to make them fit.
My configuration was pretty bulky, all things considered: mATX motherboard, ~300mm GPU (TUF 3060ti), 180mm PSU, and 3 2.5" SSDs. The build was really space constrained, moreso than even some ITX cases I've built in. The GPU length precluded putting a 3.5" HDD in the case - there's just not enough room. As for the 2.5" drives, the biggest issue with them was cable management. I had to get SATA power extensions to get a connector flat enough to work with the bottom mount, and for the two drives on the bracket you have uncomfortably bend the SATA cables themselves to get everything fitting.
Lastly, some of the specs could have been called out on the product page better. The 325mm height seems to be *without* case feet attached, for instance, and the USB-A and USB-C front I/O share a 20 pin connector. The latter would actually be pretty handy in my build, as my motherboard doesn't have the usual Type-E A Key that most USB-C front I/O uses, but I assumed I'd need one and wasted some money getting a PCIe card to give me one such key.
Those things aside, I'm actually quite happy with the case. It's really very compact, especially considering it fits what's essentially a full tower build inside, and it looks nice. Build quality seems ok, JONSBO customer support has been pleasant to work with, and all in all I'd get it again.
It's probably worth taking a look at the SAMA IM01/IM02 if you're interested in the D30 - they're similar cases and the SAMA ones seem to run a little cheaper (although I can't personally speak to the build quality or service w/ them). For my use case (component selection, desired front I/O, etc.) the D30 made more sense though.
Pros: Not many cases out there that are extremely efficient with space. Every spot had a place for something. Most cases this size you can only fit an ITX motherboard. I loved the fact I could fit an mATX motherboard and Full ATX power Supply! CUDOS! I also moded the case a little to add a 3.5 inch IPS USB Mini Screen https://amzn.to/3cxHHBy
Cons: Wish it already had the 3.5in display in the front, its legit. gives it that extra touch of something.
Overall Review: Built Solid for the price! If you're looking for something compact and fits everything you need, this is the case to get.
Overall Review: The JONSBO D30 case is great for the amount of space you have for being the same size as an NZXT H210i itx case (the D30 is shorter but slightly wider). The D30 also allows for a bigger mATX motherboard so youll have more features and ports. The front usb 3.0 and usb-C ports share the same 20-pin header cable onto the motherboard (doesnt have the separate faster 10Gbps usb-c front header, but both ports will work at 5Gbps).
The glass panel will fit a 17 portable monitor inside for those of you who want an all-in-one lol. I did an all-white build and vertically mounted my 2080Ti using a riser, zip ties and hard foams to keep it secure (wish it had this feature without mods). GPU temps are great since there are two slim fans shooting up from the bottom and the hot air is expelled from the top and rear of the case. The case also allows for multiple RGB led strips to be tucked in the corners and the two SATA SSD mounts on the front is great for a 4x3 photo =].

Pros: - Compact. Just enough space for ITX or MATX with a powerful graphics card.
- Gorgeous. This is one of the best looking cases I have ever seen.
- Well built. Not cheap/thin plastic.
- Configurable. Lots of options for cooling, drives, etc.
Cons: Hardly cons, but:
- You have to remove the top panel in order to remove the side panels
- The cable management area behind the motherboard is a tight space
- The top filter is not meant to be removable so I had to rip it out as I have top-exhaust and didn't want to impede the air flow or have dust accumulate on the inside above the radiator.
Overall Review: I definitely would recommend this case.
Size is perfect for a matx 240mm and a rtx 3080
Cons: Power connection to the psu hard bend on the cable.
Overall Review: Great case otherwise. Easy to build in the 3080 goes in on a slant to get it in buy fits nicely.
Pros: -Pack a lot of hardware in a small case
-lots of airflow options
-Fits full size PSU with large GPU's with no issues
Cons: Cant think of any, maybe I don't have 2 of them would be a con
Overall Review: Was worried I would not be able to pack everything in this case but it all fit and temps are pretty good.

During gaming GPU maxes out at 77C and CPU runs in the mid 60's.
Pros: -Design looks great
-Exceptionally transparent documentation for dimensions and compatibility on the product listing
-Fits "regular" sized PC components with room to spare
-Interchangeable side panels (which are quite beefy in construction), USB-C port up front, etc
-Preinstalled Motherboard standoffs (with a few extras included for motherboards that need it)
-Huge pass-through on the backside to access CPU cooler brackets on your motherboard
-Replaceable PCI card slot covers (not cheap punch-outs that you discard when they're removed)
Cons: -Cable pass-throughs lack any sort of rubber grommet to further hide them.
-No shroud /surround for the PSU or any cables hanging out near it, though the included SSD/HDD mounting bracket hides them well. I tucked the cables up out of the way and I'm running without the mounting bracket (not needed with M.2 drives).
Overall Review: I didn't want a massive full-sized ATX case that wasted space on the inside and outside, when I only needed to install a single GPU anyway. This case looks great, everything fit like a glove, and it still has room for a bit of expansion. I'm running it with 2x 140mm NZXT fans on the bottom, 1x 120mm NZXT fan on the rear, and an Arctic Liquid Freezer II 240mm AiO cooler on top. The lower fans are large enough to bring in air for the whole case, with most of it going to the GPU, and I have the rear fan also drawing in fresh air directly below my radiator, which expels heat through the top. Temp management is fantastic (barely getting over 50C CPU temp even while gaming with 12600K).
