**Information about the case - DETAILED!

The case is small and somewhat neat looking. The powerlight in the front is not blue, but green; which I found a little disappointing. The case is really tight! For a DVD Drive; it cannot exceed more than ~6 inches in length or it will not fit due to the position of the power supply. I used an Intel DG41MJ board with an Intel Celeron E3300 processor. The heat sink sits (touches) the CPU fan. It doesn't seem to pose any problems since it's not transfering heat to/from the processor. The case has no fans except that the power supply has one; however it blows air right into the wall of the case, so it doesn't do much. The inside can get pretty hot, so I wouldn't use this for anything that requires high performance. Make sure that absolutely nothing is blocking the air vents or else there may be heating issues. Due to the lack of room and air flow, I used a 2.5" (laptop) SATA hard drive in this computer. You can use a laptop or desktop SATA hard drive and it will work perfectly fine! There is no slot for the 2.5" laptop SATA drive, but you can set it down on the botton of the case if you lay the case down sideways.

I loaded Microsoft Windows 7 Professional on it and it works fine! With the 2.5" laptop SATA hard drive, I can bearly hear the computer running. It is very quiet.

The power supply has the following plugs:
2x SATA power
1x 20+4 power pins
1x 4 pin (for the processor)
1x floppy drive power connector
I know it has some molex cables as well, but I forgot how many. I know there was about three or so.

All the cables had either enough line or too much line. Make sure that when you're done assembling the computer that none of the cables are touching the CPU fan; you can easily work the cables around the fan.

Decent case for the price.

Super easy build. Plenty of room to spare. The case is cheap and perfect with the following modifications:

1. Flip PS over so that air intake is up.
2. Drill top of cover for PS intake and install fan filter and grill to hide holes.
3. If HD is mounted under DVD, drill bottom of case and mount 80mm fan and filter under HD for cooling (blows in).
4. Install 80mm fan in existing holes in side of cover (right side where other HD mount is located) to vent the case (blows out).

ADATA RAM fits perfectly (i.e. not too tall). Room between PS & DVD to hide PS wiring harness. No need for right angle SATA connectors in my build. Stock CPU fan fits, but you have to use common sense (i.e. SATA connection to HD after CPU fan is installed).

I3-2105 CPU
Samsung SH-B123L Blu-ray
WD 1TB Black HD
2 80mm Silverstone fans FN81
2 80mm Silverstone fan filters with grill FB81

Hi there!

Great little case if you had the right cooling. I'm using a 120mm fan on the side where the hard drive goes for an exhaust, just like a lot of people are saying. It pops right in and fits perfect! 120mm Coolermaster fans here at amazon do the job.

I also put an 80mm fan UNDER the case beneath where the internal hard drive area is. I used a tool called a Nickel Plated Nibbling Tool that's actually sold here on amazon to cut out a 80mm hole. I don't know how to link the part numbers so I'm sorry about that.

First you take an 80mm fan and mark the holes on the bottom of the case for the screw holes for the fan, then mount the fan and trace the INSIDE circle of the fan on the bottom of the case. Then take off the fan and drill a hole on the inside of the are you traced big enough to get the head of the nibbler in and nibble out the inside of the circle you traced. It does take a few minutes, but its worth it. Then just remount the fan on the inside of your case with the airflow going up inside.

I have a "All in One Card Reader 3502B" bought here also. (all my stuff was bought here because I love the free shipping) It sits just above the 80mm fan and the airflow bounces off that and goes directly over the memory to CPU fan and power supply and is sucked out by the power supply and the 120mm exhaust.

Once you install the rubber feet you have plenty of clearance for the fan underneath with a 80mm fan grill (make sure to pick one up) and nothing gets in the way. This would probably work if you had the case on its side too, as long as you don't block the fan.

I also changed the fan inside the power supply with a ball bearing type. Coolerguys 80x80x15mm 12v sell them here on amazon.

I used this to build an HTPC, and I've been very happy with it. A lot of the case was well laid out, but they could have made a few small improvements.

My build:
i3 2100t
intel h67 mini board
4gb ram
DVD drive (full size)
120mm fan
80mm fan

Despite the common complaints about tight fits, I thought there was ample room. You'll want to pay close attention to cable management to allow for good airflow, but what do you expect in a small case? I put in a 120mm intake fan in the rail that acts as a HD bay (I think there's still room for another drive next to it, but I haven't checked), and an 80mm fan as exhaust on the other side of the case. My temperatures during normal operation (playing 1080p video, streaming netflix, etc) rarely go above 42 C. It usually stays between 35-40. The fan in the PSU is silent, but doesn't really move any air. I think adding fans to the case is almost mandatory.

The space under the external HDD bay could have housed another HDD, and it would have been nice if they'd put a mount there. For now, I velcroed my SSD there, but if I add another HDD, I'll probably put it there and move the SSD.

I recommend using a CPU with a low profile cooler, as I've seen pictures of a standard cooler touching the bottom of the PSU in this case. With the 2100t's cooler, there was plenty of space.

I haven't had any trouble with the PSU. It could have come with more sata connections and fewer molex, but that's why there are adapters. I'd have happily paid a few extra dollars for an 80 plus PSU.

What you end up with, if you take care with the build, is a small case where you can stuff an optical drive, an SSD, and at least 2 (probably 3) HDDs, while staying quite cool, if you add fans.
