Pros: - Included 150W power supply
- USB 3.0 ports
- 2 slots for 2.5" hdd
- Ryzen 5 2400G fits with the standard cooler ( need to take out the shroud)
Cons: - For this format power supply should be external like Antek ISK 110
- There are only one sata power cable even though there are 2 hdd slots
- Space could have been used much more efficiently if here were no slots for slim cdrom
- for the amount of power the power supply delivers, it should be in external power supply
Overall Review: It's a quality case and I would recommend it, however I really wanted Antec ISK 110, but max power the system would use is 120W, so this is the next best thing.
There's lots of vesa mounting options for affixing this case to the back of monitors, but it looks a little to big and too heavy for that.
Pros: Although not listed, came with a slimline adapter with power adapter for floppy so it does not take up the one SATA power connector the PSU provides.
Very compact and very solid.
Cons: The stock AMD Wraith Stealth cooler will fit, but you have to remove the shroud (to remove first remove screw under AMD logo).
Cosmetic flaw prevented one side from closing completely (2-3 mm gap).
Pros: 80+ rated PSU
Overall Review: It'll involve modifying the Ryzen's cooler if you're building on a budget, but that isn't the case's fault. The PSU looks like what you'd see in a rack mounted server. The PSU doesn't add much to the size, I prefer the internal PSU to avoid a nest of wires. You can use standard PC cables which come in a variety of lengths to meet your needs. The external PSU's make cable management a pain.
This case is similar to an InWin Chopin with the ability to add a slim optical drive.
Pros: Very difficult to be disappointed
- construction is rigid, not wobbly (very good)
- generous wattage for its size
- looks sleek and minimalist
Cons: A few drawbacks
- plastic tabs used for helping remove top/bottom covers are flimsy plastic, easily breakable on first use
- documentation is mostly useless (Fractal Design makes great docs)
- hard drive installation was tough and the SATA/power cables are forced to be uncomfortably bent
Overall Review: Highly recommended for no-GPU mini-ITX builds, get this if you can't find an InWin Chopin. It's basically the same thing.
Pros: - Power supply fan is silent with 35W TDP CPU. Any highter of a TDP and the PSU 40mm fan is annoying.
- Internal power supply means no external adapter brick
- Compact small footprint
- Construction quality is good
Cons: - Cable routing & concealment is tricky
Overall Review: A good PC case if you keep the TDP to 35W max.
