Pros: i built two toaster sized mITX computers for VR using these boards, didn't have any problems.

Cons: i wish the wifi/bluetooth antenna was internal. but otherwise very happy with them.

Other Thoughts: both of the systems i built with these are running 6600Ks, 4000MHz corsair RAM, and short versions of GTX 1070. both have been running for a few months now, and everything seems OK.


Pros: it's made mostly out of metal? that's all i got.

Cons: -died in about 4 months. but it didn't just stop working one day. the performance started degrading gradually and it took me a while to isolate this switch as the culprit for dropped packets and other problems.
-it only powered 3 office phones.

Other Thoughts: -i bought this think that cisco products would be reliable. nope. i was wrong
-you can get better products for half the price.

Pros: -all aluminum build. I say again, ALL ALUMINUM BUILD!!!
-for a $40 case, the materials used and build quality is unbelievable. if this case was Corsair or Lian branded, it would run $80+. it even came with a 120mm fan filter and a fan. the fan isn't fantastic, but it's not terrible either, but the fan filter is easily worth $5, since that's how much they typically run for.
-the lay out is fantastic. for a case this small, you can't possible create a batter lay out.
-case supports an ATX PSU! truly unbelievable at this

Cons: -needs a vent in the top panel for GPU. in this case, the motherboard, and therefor GPU, is mounted upside down. so the GPU will suck in air from above it. they should have definitely put a 120mm fan slot on top. i took the top panel of my case to a metal shop and had the create an opening for a 140mm fan. it fit great right above a GPU, and bought a magnetic 140mm fan filter to put on top of it.

unfortunately, cutting out more vents at this price is unreasonable to even ask for. this would add cost to the case. if they would have charge maybe $5 more and created a vent on the top, it would be amazing.

Other Thoughts: into this case, i managed to install the following:
-Asrock Z170 mITX/AC Fatal1ty motherboard
-intel 6600K @4.5 GHz
-Zalman all in one CPU water cooler with a corsair ML120 Pro fan
-XFX RX 480 @1360 MHz core/8200 MHz mem
-Corsair ML140 Pro fan in the panel on a custom cut vent
-Corsair CX550M PSU
-480GB kingston SSD
-2TB laptop HDD

the result.... the ultimate mobile gaming/VR computer for 1080p TVs
