Product Description

The slimmer Milo ML03 has a profile of 105mm height and 340mm depth, making it extremely easy to integrate into any living room furniture. Incredibly, this case can accommodate up to three 3.5-Inch hard drives or five 2.5-Inch HDD/SSD through its smartly designed drive cages that can mount either size without any use of adapters. For cooling, the ML03 can be fitted with up to four 80mm fans so users can choose to build a quiet system with low power components or a powerful HTPC with 140W CPU if needed. There are also numerous small touches including pre-cut hole for VGA (D-SUB) connector, Kensington lock support, and an additional full size expansion slot for installing extra motherboard I/O, fan controller, or accessories products such as CLEARCMOS. For those looking to build an HTPC with good expansion and cooling capability but has limited room and budget, the SilverStone Milo ML03 is the one to get.

In the past decade, I've built at least 300 media center PCs-- some for personal use, some for friends, and many for clients (I used to own a home theater installation business). I've purchased a few of the more high-end SilverStone cases and have always been happy with the build quality, ease of use, and overall feature set. I bought this case for a low-level build, made from spare parts I had laying around for an HTPC to put in the shed on my deck-- I certainly didn't want to go overboard on a case for this system, so I opted for this one mainly because it was cheap and it fit into the space I needed it to fit into.

This particular case is advertised as "the entry-level HTPC benchmark" (says so right on the box), and that description isn't at all deceptive, but if you're an actual entry-level user, there are a number of things you should definitely be aware of. First of all, it doesn't fit most standard power supplies. I tried three modular 500-600 watt PSUs that are what I consider to be the standard size, but all of them were too deep to fit into the space provided, so I had to use a 380 watt, non-modular Antec EA-380D Green power supply that fit the smaller dimensions. Unfortunately, a non-modular power supply isn't really ideal for this case-- one of its strengths is its small form-factor, but the mass of unused PSU wires is a real hindrance to the airflow here. I'm sure there are modular PSUs available in this smaller size, but I can't find one. The majority of the power supplies that will fit into this case are of the cheaper variety, and one thing I try not to skimp on is the PSU.

This is my second case I've purchased. I was pleased with the design and the amount of drives this case will hold. There is plenty of room to run wires to drives and the case comes with the adapter to allow the USB 3.0 front panel connectors to be connector to the USB 2.0 header on the MB if your board does not have USB 3.0 headers on it.

Cons: This is not really a con but you really need to be careful about the power supply you pick for this case. a 140mm is about the MAX. Any larger will make it almost impossible to install a Blu-ray drive which most are a little bite longer than standard DVD.A 90 degree connector is a must use in this case.

I was looking for a slim style htpc case that would look good with my home theater without costing a bunch. This case fits the bill.
Installation of pc hardware was simple. I have a Gigabyte MicroATX USB 3.0 mobo that takes advantage of the case's 3.0 front ports which is nice. I'm using an Intel i3 with stock cooler and the temps in this case are fine. Also in the case is 2 3.5 Hard drives & the case has a nice mounting system for them. The only problem is that, as other reviewers have mentioned, the space for the optical player is tight.
I installed a Sony Optiarc BD-ROM Model BR-5100S & it was barely short enough but it did fit. So watch the length of whatever optical drive you want to put in this case. Other than that I am very pleased with it.

I just built this case up. When received, it wasn't square, the panels were a little bent and the whole unit was not square. It took a little fiddling for 2-3 minutes to get it all lined up. Once that was done, screwing in the pieces was easy.

Things to note:
If you plan on installing an optical drive, get a power supply that is only 140mm long.
Try, if you can, to get a modular power supply. It gets a little crowded around the optical drive with all the cables
Make sure you have a cpu fan that can fit in here. Standard oem ones generally work, but don't buy a heatsink or fan without first looking this case over with your components.
It can take 4 80mm fans to help with air flow.
The USB 3.0 front ports come with an adapter for 2.0 headers, in case your motherboard doesn't have 3.0 headers.
I broke the cover of the Optical Drive when removing it, it was tough to remove.
The front is plastic with an aluminum face with texture
The power supply fan draws in air from below and pushes it out through the rear. It does not extract case air, so think about the 80mm fans
When using the 80mm fans, think about blocking the unused 80mm fan holes to help aid air exhaust - this is not if you plan to use 4 80mm fans
The paint chips easily, so don't rub this thing the wrong way.
The LEDs are bright, but as long as you are not facing them, they seem ok- otherwise, dont plug em in

I would buy this case again!

I like this case a lot for the price and size. You can fit a lot into it, but there are drawbacks. My main concerns are that the case came to me slightly bent/warped. I noticed this when trying placing the case on a flat surface and the again when trying to get the case door back on. Unfortunately I needed to work hard to get things realigned properly. The back of the case is very flimsy and easily bent so be careful and don't apply a lot of pressure (especially when the top of the case if off). You can fit a lot into it, but the biggest problem is that depending on the positioning of your motherboard's ATX power connectors you might not be able to to reach to plug in the ATX power cables from your PSU. You can resolve this by flipping the PSU (which puts that power cable closer to the motherboard, giving you about 3-4 more inches of cable to work with), but this is a problem because the case's PSU air intake/outtake is on the bottom of the case. There are a variety of ways to configure things internally which really makes it easy for people to customize it how they'd like. I think overall this case is a 4 Star product, but I gave it 3 because mine came bent. You'l find many better HTPC cases on the market, but not at this price point. For a budget HTPC build this is an excellent option. I used older hardware in mine because that's what I had on hand.

I am currently using the following inside the ML03B: Sapphire Radeon HD 7750 1GB DDR5 Micro HDMI/DVI-I/Mini DP Low Profile PCI-Express Graphics Card 11202-10-20G,
