The case is very well made, as all metal with the exception of the faceplate. Installing the motherboard and drives was extremely easy and because of the removable drive storage you can easily access the motherboard and store any cables out of sight behind the drive cradle.
As far as accessories, this case comes with a all the necessary screws to install your motherboard, a HDD, and a DVD drive, with some extras to spare. The case comes with removable feet that you don't even need to stand the case up vertically. Finally, the case comes with the same amount of instructions you'd find with any other case, a couple diagrams for the front panel ports and a voltage diagram of some sort.
If you're looking for a great deal on a slim case for a media or on desk PC this is the case for you. Keep in mind that this is a slim case however and most normal PCI cards will be too big for this case. Also keep in mind that the PSU is smaller than normal power supplies so take that into account if you plan on swapping out power supplies.
Hope it helps!
Another reviewer said the 80mm case fan is what is causing the noise, but it seems much quieter than the power supply fan. I unplugged it and barely noticed a difference in noise. When I was powering the components off of a full sized ATX power supply I could barely hear any of them. Using the power supply in this case and it's very noticeable.
Otherwise I had some difficulty installing the optical drive. There are only two screw positions which you can use to install an optical drive. The first one was too far forward and the button on the front of the case was pinned up against the optical drive eject button making the button non-functional. The second position was too far back and the button on the case wouldn't reach the optical drive button. I was able to somewhat get it to work by only installing one screw on the side opposite of the button so that the drive can have a very small tilt, which allowed the front button to work.
EDIT: I was able to quiet it down. I unplugged the small fan on the side of the case and replaced the power supply fan.
Luckily the fan in the power supply connects using a fan header, not directly soldered. To open the power supply just remove the four small screws on the top (side with the fan) and the cover with the fan comes off. Unplug the fan from the power supply and unscrew it from the top of the supply.Read more ›
I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a case, since I had to also acquire a DVDRW, some memory and a motherboard. I already had a nice SATA hard drive.
I researched every possible source of cases. Many were $80+ with a few $100+. I was skeptical what I could get for under $40 that was worth anything.
The APEX Black Micro ATX12V fit the bill and then some. The size is perfect for a home media center, less wide than an standard amplifier or DVD player (to allow room for a cable modem or splitter). The case is SOLID metal, well built and with all parts fitting very well. The front is a nice gloss black plastic that fits well with a home entertainment system, surrounded by a tasteful brushed aluminum bezel for just the "right" look. The case, as small as it is, seems huge with paired with an FM1 motherboard and the basic components for a PC. The cooling fan is DEAD silent (don't know why some people considered it loud ... maybe the manufacturer changed the fan?). The DVD access is subdued, and the little DVD button works perfectly. The little panel that hides the audio inputs and extra front USB inputs in strong enough to withstand everyday use.
And the most outstanding thing about this VERY inexpensive case is that it has a fold up (and removeable) sub-tray for the hard disk, DVDRW and a 3.5" device.Read more ›
For a general computer with a small footprint this is a great buy but if you need quiet you might try replacing the fan.
