This case is a unicorn

ASUS AP201 Type-C Airflow-focused Micro-ATX,Mini-ITX Computer Case, Support 360/280 Liquid Cooling - Black
ASUS AP201 Type-C Airflow-focused Micro-ATX,Mini-ITX Computer Case, Support 360/280 Liquid Cooling - Black

Pros: This thing is the magical unicorn I have been waiting for 20 years! Granted there is nothing special about it, but that is exactly the point. It's gorgeous without bling, well conceived, extremely well vented, it can fit a Matx or ITX with a 4090, a 13900k, a 360mm cooler, my 1600W psu, 1x 2.5 + 3x 3.5 (or 4x 2.5) drive, plus a few fans. All panel pop off. no glass, no rgb... just everything you need for a pretty decent rig while taking half the height of a ATX case. This case pickup where the NR200 dropped the ball.

Cons: Well there has to be a con, so i'll say the venting. It is so well vented that dust is going to get everywhere... But I fixed that with a few magnetic screen from elsewhere installed on the inside. and it is perfect now!

Overall Review: If you don't buy one for your small build, you are missing out on one of the best case to come out in recent years.

Most Critical Review

Worked for exactly 6 months before needing RMA

ASUS Dual GeForce RTX 2060 EVO OC Edition Graphics Card (PCIe 3.0, 12GB GDDR6, HDMI, DisplayPort, DVI-D, Axial-tech Fan, 0dB Technology, Auto-Extreme) DUAL-RTX2060-O12G-EVO
ASUS Dual GeForce RTX 2060 EVO OC Edition Graphics Card (PCIe 3.0, 12GB GDDR6, HDMI, DisplayPort, DVI-D, Axial-tech Fan, 0dB Technology, Auto-Extreme) DUAL-RTX2060-O12G-EVO

Pros: Well it did the job for a 1080p screen on my kid computer playing most game at reasonable setting.

Cons: Fan died after 6 months month of use, it's making a grinding noise, kid is crying because he does not have a pc anymore... Big fail Asus, not only did I have to overpay this card, now it's not even working!

Overall Review: Had other Asus in the past but it seems that newer products tend to fail a lot. Success is a thing you can't sit on Asus, get your thing in order if you don't want to loose business to the competition... My kid says he won't buy your "stuff" ever when he is older. That's bad for future business you know...

Great Small GPU

EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 XC3 ULTRA GAMING Video Card, 08G-P5-3755-KR, 8GB GDDR6, iCX3 Cooling, ARGB LED, Metal Backplate
EVGA GeForce RTX 3070 XC3 ULTRA GAMING Video Card, 08G-P5-3755-KR, 8GB GDDR6, iCX3 Cooling, ARGB LED, Metal Backplate

Pros: The size is small, the build quality is great, not a bunch of RGB except the small logo on the side. Fan don't spin unless needed. Great performance all around. Black IO back-plate is a plus and package is recyclable, not like that frustrating Asus wrapped stuff.

Cons: ARGB only controlable from EVGA application... I wish it was compatible with mainstream motherboard app.

Overall Review: Yes I would buy again and it's relatively less expensive that other brands

Expensive for what it is

MSI Mech Radeon RX 6700 XT 12GB GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0 Video Card RX 6700 XT MECH 2X 12G OC
MSI Mech Radeon RX 6700 XT 12GB GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0 Video Card RX 6700 XT MECH 2X 12G OC

Pros: I actually got one.

Cons: Bad cooling, and way too costly for the performance.

Overall Review: not really worth it unless you really got no other choice. AMD dropped the ball on this one
