Top Customer Reviews
as of April 2015, this case is the perfect companion for AMD A series APUs because it allows you to build a high performance multimedia station that can play games in a case that's smaller than the PS4 or Xbox. while this case can also host Intel processors, but you really shouldn't be bothered with it because if SFF and poor 3d graphic is your thing, Intel has smaller form factors. but if you want good graphic performance with decent CPU performance in a small form factor, then you only two choice are Dell's Alienware Alpha or AMD's APU in this case.
what i have in the box are as follows:
AMD A10-7850K underclocked to 3.5/3.7GHZ (from 3.7/4.0GHz) on the CPU, under voltage from 1.45 to 1.25V. this will allow the processor to use about 60W of power.
8G DDR 3 high profile ram.
stock AMD cooling fan
HDD + SSD
things to take note:
1. this case does accommodate the stock FM2+ fan, you may want to replace the stock cooler for something that's lower in noise, but it can do it ( make sure you install the fan in the right direction or else the lid aren't gonna fit)
2. the case does accommodate the high profile RAM.
3. the included PSU is 90W, but that's a useless information by itself. what you should also know is that the power brick can provide up to 90W with 19V output. the internal DC to DC rectifier that converts 19V to 12V, 3.3V and 5V has the following spec:
12V - 5A
5V - 6A
3.3V - 5A
where the 12V is mainly used for power up the processor. therefore the maximum PSU it can support is 12*5=60W. that's right, 60W, even if you get the A10-7800, during extreme situation (like running future mark), you will have a sudden lose of power because of over current protection.
Cons: Wiring from power supply bunches into a big mess. There isn't any way to install it neatly or out of the way. Only instructions are on line and a few sections are reused from the obsolete ISK 100 case and slightly wrong. Mic and headphone ports on front are not labeled. See below to make sure this meets your needs.
Other thoughts: No expansion slots, so no way to install graphics card, etc. No room for an optical drive, card reader, etc., either. Neither is an issue for me. Get a CPU with good enough on board graphics for your needs, in my case Intel HD4000. PSU is 90W external, so watch your CPU's power requirements. The only cooling is from the CPU fan which has to be low profile. My stock Intel fan clears the case by maybe 1/4" if that. 2.5" HDD/SSD only; there is room for two. No USB 3.0 on front panel, only four USB 2.0 on front panel. That might seem like a Con, but in my case I use two of the front USBs for the keyboard and mouse and the others for connecting phone, etc. It would be difficult to fit a USB 3.0 front panel plug into the case. Since the case is so small and sitting on the desk, I use the rear USB 3.0 from the motherboard. Paired with an Intel DH77DF motherboard, Intel 520 SSD, Intel i3-3225 CPU, and Crucial DDR3-1600 RAM.
It all ended up working out - I crammed it all in there. An Asus p8z77-i, an Intel core i5-3570k (running at 103*41 - I didn't try and push it too much in this tiny case), a Crucial SSD, and a Western Digital 500GB blue drive. It all fits and it's all been running stable without issue.
Case: Antec Mini-ITX Case ISK110-VESA
cpu: AMD A10-Series APU A10-7850K (95w)
Cpu cooler: Scythe Kozuti Low Profile CPU Cooler
memory: 8 gig low profile memory
hard drive: 240gb msata SSD
additional parts: 1) 120W Mini ITX Power Supply KIT PicoPSU (if cpu greater than 90w is needed) 2)StarTech.com LP4P4ADAP 6in LP4 to P4 Auxiliary Power Cable Adapter
Temperature at full load: 64c At idle: 35c
Full load at 64c in a pc case less then 3 inch high and 8 inches long (length is about size of mac mini) is simply an amazing feat for me and I have put together many pc's.
The case will accomodate 2 x 2.5inch laptop hard drives and 1 msata ssd on motherboard. if you choose a cpu less than 90w, then you will not need the 120w mini ITX power supply kit, the case comes with a 90w kit also neater it is made for the case, with the 120w kit, the female power plug will hang out of the case - doesn't bother me though)
If space is a constraint and you need a multi purpose, light gaming pc, and need more space for your legs beneath your desk, this is it. This pc setup run really fast, I am very happy.
