Difficult to complain for a small case under 50$... It works for now (don't know how long the PSU will last? I have no problems so far). I've fitted it with a Foxconn H67S board, G530 proc (OEM fan is a very tight fit under the PSU... like 2mm!!!). My DVD drive fits but the cables have to be bent sharply to clear the PSU.
Purchased this case to build a (small) home server. Paired with an atom board, this case can do wonders. It can fit 2 hard drives (or one and an ODD) with room left for a 120mm fan, or even 3 hard drives, at the price of air flow. The included PSU isn't fantastic but gets the job done. This is a great case for a small, low power budget system; don't expect to build a gaming war machine out of it.
It's been running continuously for more than 2 weeks now with no overheating. I put in an intel mobo with celeron 3300 CPU. I haven't installed a fan in the side as others have and no issues. It is very quiet. I would buy another.
This case looked great at first glance, but has been nothing but problems for me. First off the psu that comes with this gets very hot and the exhaust fan points directly on top of the cpu/heatsink meaning if you're going to use an i3/i5 with this case, you might want to look elsewhere. Temperatures with stock heatsink on an i3-540 have been difficult to keep below 70C. Furthermore the motherboard tray uses built in raisers, but are just bubbled up metal on the tray. Because of this, the case made squealing and beeping noises as a result of harmonic vibrations due to the contact with the motherboard. In order to remedy this problem I had to use hot glue on the tray to dampen the vibrations.

I bought this for my mini-ITX project. it was the least expensive case I could find that still had a reasonably sized power supply. I don't have any complaints about it. I had no problems putting my system together using a Intel 945DGLF, SATA hard disk, and an old full size ATA CD burner. It is very quiet and temperatures are well controled. My only complaint is how the tab for the single PCI slot sticks out from the back of the case. Its not a major issue but it detracts from an otherwise nice design.
I was able to fit a 120mm fan on the side with ventilation holes. Slips in under the metal crossbar and press fits just right. First tried a 1200rpm Yate-loon. That was a bit noisy. Now run a 1000rpm Nexus at 50% speed. Very quiet.
