Antec Basiq 430watt is a perfect fit, 140mm. However I had a Earthwatt 650 on hand that is whisper quiet. There is a lot of talk about the PSU getting in the way of the hard drive cage or long optical drives. Well you could easily buy a $3 5.25 to 3.5 adapter if you only plan on running one optical drive to solve the hard drive clearance issue. I used the larger Antec earthwatt 650 and the stock hard drive cage by using right angle sata connectors and tucked the extra cables under my DVD drive. I also cut out the metal with my angle grinder under the PSU and ran my PSU upside down so I have a 120mm exhaust fan over my Northbridge and PVR 150. I have 3 Antec tri cool fans on order but so far its pretty quiet. AMD 125 watt processor.
Built a HTPC using this case, installled 2 HDD and a optical , including the GPU space was a little tight.
Sensor panel is little more than eye candy but it looks nice for the kiddies. This is not a bad case for the money, once priced match'd it was a bargain. Overall I am happy with the case, its small and looks nice a perfect addition to the entertainment unit.
Room enough to work in, decent space for cable routing. I bought this along with the M3A78-EM board for my HTPC. I really like the flip open case feature. Very happy with the case. Being able to use full height video cards is definitely a plus. The only thing i would have preferred, would have been the LCD readout in a blue back lit instead of red. Other than that...it was money well spent!
First time builder. Had no troubles at all, very easy to build due to dual deck. Tidy wiring and lots of space to work. Need to buy optional fans though becuase the 1 stock 120mm fan is insufficient. I used SATA for hard drive, if you don't, the fit is very tight against the PSU, I'd say near impossible.
I really like these cases (I've built several) because with a set of tinsips and 10 minutes, the sheet metal divider between the top and bottom halves can be removed. This allows for better airflow through power supplies that have a 120MM fan, and most impressively allows the installation of tall CPU heatsinks like the Zalman 90. (Don't think the 120 would fit as it would be too wide and hit the power supply.
In any case (no pun intended), it allows decent overclocking with the improved airflow and larger CPU HS.
The front panel LCD looks cool. Easy to work inside. Just be careful if you have a bigger PSU, it needs to to installed before everything else because there is no extra room between the PSU and hard disk or DVD drive. I installed a Corsair VX550W PSU and a Scythe Shuriken 3 heatpipe low profile CPU heatsink in this case and expected it to be quiet, but it's not. Maybe this case is not designed to be quiet.
The split design of the case makes it quite easy to work inside of. The power supply is is a bit of a tight fit and the size of the case will leave standard length cables all over the place. Fortunately there is space for a few 80 mm fans, plus the case is very good-looking.
