Experience: 20 Days


Adequate build quality, ok looks, price, ventilation appears adequate.
PSU fan louder than expected, power cables too long (difficult to manage for optimal air flow)
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.

Experience: 2 Months


-Can fit 3 hard 3,5'' hard drives
-Small: low clearance under the psu (regular-sized heatsinks won't fit)
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.

Experience: 21 Days


Relatively small, solid construction.
The PSU is sitting right on top of the CPU fan.
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.

Experience: 2 Weeks


Outside looks nice, dvd tray is concealed with a drop  down window.
case design layout, mobo tray, psu
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.

nice looking with power supply, quite solid feel
I use this for HTPC with Zotac 9300 G-E and Pentium dual core E6500. great setup, I love it.
It looks good with the other tv stuff.
Tight build but nice size.

Experience: 4 Days


-Very sleek
-Solidly built
-Somewhat crammed inside
-Lack of cable management
A great purchase, made this for a friend with an Intel Atom box, a SSD, a generic ODD, a stick of RAM. All in all, for under $300, a solid web browsing option, small and quiet.
It looks great on the table, has everything a basic user can ask for!

Experience: 4 Weeks


Inexpensive, good looking, quiet, good layout, easy to work with
PCI tab protrudes from back of case
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.

Experience: 2 Weeks


Can fit 120mm fan, small, quiet
No significant weaknesses. Not superhigh quality, but well worth he price.
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.

Also changed stock PSU for a 80+ 1u Sparkle 220W server unit. It fits in the spare space under the HD cage. Freed up space in rear would allow a bigger CPU cooler for those who need that.

I run a dual core Atom, with custom made passive coolers as a mythtv backend (Hauppauge PCI tuner card) and fileserver.

Experience: 60 Days


Looks good
Standard DVD drive slot and 3.5 HDD
One of the cheapest enclosure with a powersupply
Power led is impossible to see (too far in the case)
Good small and cheap case for an ITX atom board.
Perfect for a hackintosh project. PS is silent enough.
1 PCI full height.

Experience: 2 Months


Inexpensive Mini-ITX case
Nice black finish
Mounting a hard drive blocks side ventilation
No optional fan
'Silver' front marks easily
While the case isn't terrible, there are a two major issues, the first being a lack of ventilation, the other being the material used for the front bezel.

The case requires that hard drives be mounted vertically (the 3.5" bay does not have the proper holes to mount a hdd) which blocks the grill. Also note that the case does have space for a fan (it might be possible to attach one to the grill if no hdd is present, but that does not appear to be the intent.)

The material used for the 'silver' portion of the bezel is a soft, easily marked plastic, with a mirrored backing. In my opinion the manufacturers photos look significantly better than the real bezel, also due to the nature of the material it was also scuffed. Which is unfortunate as the black finish of the rest of the case looks sharp.

It looks like the newer Apex MI-008 fixes the issue with the front bezel.
