Pros: Small but still plenty of room for any Graphics card. The quality is mostly great, and the design is intelligent.
I left behind my old Antec 902 for this case, and am very pleased with how much quieter it is.. my Antec sounded like a jet liner taking off.
The window also looks great on this case, while still looking classy.
Cons: I can't give this 5 stars because the front panel which holds the 5.25 bays in place snapped one of its feet right off when i tried to gently remove it. Be careful with that front plate! I also think it's kind of weird how when I put an optical drive in, it sits recessed back further than the brushed aluminum front plate. Could look better if it was flush...
Overall Review: This case is seriously a winner and I only have minor complaints.
Pros: Small, simple, great for people who don't need tons of connections, overclocks, or dual video cards.
Cons: One of my four RAM slots is bad. Windows crashes on load, blue screens, and powers off if I have any stick plugged into my first RAM slot. I really don't have the time or energy to RMA this, so I guess I will make due with the other 3 RAM slots and entrust my money to a different brand next time... ASUS let me down this round.
The box was also delivered to me just short of mangled... which I suppose is UPS's fault not Neweggs...
Overall Review: For those using large aftermarket CPU coolers, be aware that your cooler might overlap over your first RAM slot, making it difficult to easily access without removing the cooler. This should be expected from micro ATX i suppose, so I can't call it a con.
