Most Favorable Review

Nice case, but not quiet

Pros: - Really good airflow- Looks nice- Pretty easy to build in- RGB is super bright

Cons: - Not like obtrusively loud, but very noticeable- Had a bit of an issue connecting SATA power to both my SATA ssd and hdd, power cable had to be both stretched and squashed

Overall Review: I got this case to replace my old mini-ITX case which had really bad airflow (causing cooling problems) and it fixed it, but my mini-ITX board makes it look a bit silly. No fault of the case its just something I find funny.

Most Critical Review

Well, one stick works just fine

Pros: - The working stick registers at the correct frequency

Cons: - The not working stick doesn't work (if you didn't notice)- It didn't just not register, the system refused to post with it

Overall Review: My 8 gb of 2400Mhz vengeance LPX RAM just wasn't cutting it anymore, so I got some cheap memory at a slightly faster frequency to double the amount. Took me a while to figure out why the system wasn't posting but found out its because a stick died. Now the machine has 12 gb (oh no mixed RAM!!) that works just fine at the vengeance lpx's frequency of 2400Mhz.

Pros: - Easy to install- I like the amount of USB ports (even though most are 2.0)- Didn't have to bend annoying things on the i/o shield

Cons: - A bit annoying to plug stuff in near the RAM (talking about with the modules installed), but mini-ITX is cramped so what did you expect

Overall Review: Nice motherboard, nothing really amazing, but Z590 mini-ITX for 169.99? Good deal
