4 out of 5 eggs Good case. Roomie. Not recommended if youre trying to go as small as possible. 04/11/2016

This review is from: Thermaltake Core V21 Black Extreme Micro ATX Cube Chassis CA-1D5-00S1WN-00

Pros: Nice case... build quality is good... it feels nice, not cheap.. looks good, everything inside was solid. I Fit in a big Graphics card, EVO 212 cooler, 600w CORSAIR power supply... all with tons of room left. Tons of options for drives inside of it.... I used an m.2 SSD so all of mine were empty.. but you could really setup a nice filer server in this thing.

Cons: It feels a little big, lots of wasted space inside. After staring at it for a week, I decided it was too big still and am going to rebuild with a smaller mobo and case. The audio port on the front got a little noisey (inside the headphones) after leaving the computer on for a few days, not sure if that was the case fault, or the mobo high impedance mobo setting for the high end headphones i was using. I plugged direct into the back of the mobo and it was fine.

Other Thoughts: I ended up going with an ITX option... many of these mATX options are still too big really, I would only go mATX if you really think you will end up going dual video card.... Other than that there are a lot of nice ITX options, that dont leave so much empty space on your desk........ This case was cheap though.. so it will probably sit around here for a bit, and then I'll give it to a friend building a rig.

Pros: Runs great. I didnt do any benchmarking, but seems very solid. Installs/Boots right up, installed Nvidia drivers for it in win 10 with no problems.. I have it running three 1080p monitors under Win10.. the Fans dont even kick on when its in the desktop doing basic stuff. The plethora of connection options on the back is great.

Cons: Its not small, but not too big really... The ports on the back in most cases will be right up against the edge of the slits to the outside of the case... so slimmer tipped cables are ideal. But I didnt find any cable that hasnt fit yet, but I could see that being an issue.

Pros: Works great, didnt need any special drivers to install this under Windows 10. Quite fast. Quite small. Doesnt put off heat.

Cons: None.
