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.Read more ›
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.
It's just an all-around great case. It's one of the nicest ones to look at that I've dealt with in a while. It's solid and nothing feels overly flimsy or wobbly. Since you get so much frame space, there's a bar to hold the frame so it doesn't become warped or bent when you load it up with your parts.
The case is 105mm from top to bottom and 140mm of comfortable PSU room so you really must plan accordingly. Things get cramped fast.
Here are a few tidbits of advice for your build experience.
- You want to remove the frame bar and the nylon/rubber drive cage before you do any work in the case. This is in the instructions, which I recommend reading.
- You have 140mm of PSU room before you cut off some of the 2.5" drive bay on the floor beside the PSU bay. Any longer and you'll also likely hinder your ability to install anything but 2.5" drives in the 5.25" bay (maybe you won't be able to install anything at all).
- At 105mm top to bottom, make sure you get the right CPU fan. Depending on your build you may not need anything too big or powerful. I did, as my build is a re-purposing of my recently redundant system (Q6600, 8GB RAM, 750w Modular PSU, 3 1TB HD).Read more ›
Overall, it's very nice. Good fit/finish. Very solidly built. No sharp edges. Versatile! The top panel can accommodate a variety of hardware, including an internal slot-load optical drive, a fan, a 3.5" drive, or two 2.5" drives. I have not personally confirmed any of these, but the provisions are there. Choice of these components will depend greatly on the mobo layout and height of the HSF. Since I'm using a full-size HSF, it's unlikely that I'll attempt to add any of these components.
The drive cage holds an astonishing 4 2.5" full-height drives. If you decide to take advantage of this, you will definitely have to consider wiring bulk, such as buying 6"-8" SATA cables instead of trying to stuff the typical 18" cables in there. There's not a lot of spare room when you use a SFX supply internally. I'm using a 160W Pico supply, so I've patched the back panel where the PSU goes with a 1/4" polycarbonate sheet where an 80mm case fan and the 12V power plug for the Pico supply goes.
Front Panel Connectors: Nicely done. Lights/switches are twisted wires with labeled connectors for the mobo header. There's a connector for "HD" Audio. And to my surprise, there's a "20-pin" (or 19, if you prefer) connector for USB3 from the motherboard. That's the good news. The bad news is that the wires are very stiff and much longer than they need to be, forcing you to find a space to tuck them away in an already very tight situation.Read more ›
