Getting past this minor complaint though, I have always taken great pains to manage cooling - particularly with respect to maintaining air flow around drives - even though I don't typically buy high end cases. This has to be my best case yet. It included extra fans and definitely will draw air around the drive bays. The absence of plastic panels, etc. is also a bonus, though I do miss the quick disconnect side panel latches that I enjoy on a similar competitor's case in the same price range.
In my opinion, the location of the front-mounted USB and audio connectors is superior for my application. The side-mounted connectors on some cases is beyond difficult at times, and the high connectors on many cases in the same class are awkward when the case is on a desktop for easy access, etc. The location of these connectors was very high on my selection criteria.
This purchase emphasized to me the importance of seeing a case before buying it. I selected a number of cases "on-line", but I actually visited a brick-and-mortar store before the purchase. Upon seeing the cases with similar attributes and price, it became clear that this case clearly stood head and shoulders above any of the others that I could actually see. Most of the cases felt tinny, had plastic parts, etc. The brick-and-mortar store front, though, had no stock, so I resorted to buying online, but, going forward, I'm certain I will never buy a case without looking at one first.
I'm not a big fan of the large top grill on the case as I tend to stack several towers in my tight environment where I have multiple systems, but I have no regrets either. I'd rather have cooling options than nit-pick this point. In fact, a comment below shows that this is probably a key feature that I want to have even though I'm not used to the top of a tower case being open.
A plus about this case was that the cooling apertures all have screen filters. Dust is a problem in my environment - to the point that I periodically clean the insides of systems every so often. While the filters aren't likely as effective as the filters on my to-date favorite case, these filters are definitely going to be easier to remove/clean, and are less likely to trap the dust in a way that detracts from the black finish. The presence of the filter screens also mitigate risk of dropping small items into the case from the vents along the top.
A key selling point for me on this case was that the cooling apertures are such that they do not emphasize "show off" vanity lighting inside the case. I feel that many cases built to show of the inside of the case are unattractive when this is not a goal for the build - particularly when the system is going to have a lot of internal cabling, cards, and so on. The front grille is nice and open, but not so much that empty bays will detract from the system appearance.
This is the first tower case I've built that uses a bottom mounted power supply. At first I was somewhat skeptical about losing use of the power supply fan to draw heat off the top of the case, but upon further consideration it is clear the design is well thought out. The power supply cooling is maximized, and the top case venting will prevent hot air from pooling at the top of the tower. Furthermore, I find that cable routing in this configuration is superior. Whereas I've always had to contend with cabling that crosses over the CPU, memory, etc., in top-mounted power supply configurations, it's going to be a pleasure to route cables in this case.
A slight downer on this design is that mounting removable optical drives in the 5.25" bays will break the continuity of the front vertical bar that houses the switches, indicators and connectors. I think that will detract from the appearance of the case when a drive is mounted there.
Thumb screws for side panel removal are vanity items that add no functional value. They are decorative and attractive (black and textured), but I find that they are decidedly not tool-less thumb screws. They are so small and the threading so tight that one must use a screwdriver.
Bottom-line: I am happy to have this case. The price was right, I found the case in a brick-and-mortar store so I could review it before buying it, and I doubt I'd want to spend the time to hunt down a competing case to avoid the few nit-picks I have against it. Of the cases I saw, this was by far and away the one that best fit my criteria... cooling options being paramount on that list. The things I would change about this case that would make it perfect: drive mount hardware for all drive bays, quick-open latches for the side panels.
I haven't had a full ATX tower before so the size was a bit surprising. you can probably fit 6 or more laptops in it empty.
Nice features all around. it has a tray for extra screws and stuff which was pretty cool. a configurable disk tray. (what direction you want the disk drives/hhds to slide in)
There is so much room for cooling units, hhd/ssd, disk drives. etc.
Again I'm use to small builds so seeing the size of it in person is a bit surprising.
There is about 3 inches of clearance under my desk as the tower stands about 2ft tall.
I got 3 parts left to get for this dream machine. The case being one of the least expensive items. (mobo, cpu, cpu cooler are next)
For now I transferred my old cmp parts in so its not a $150 paper weight. lol
Since the slim factor case was too small for any graphic cards, I had to buy a new case. I didn't want to buy a regular ATX case, because he's only 10. I don't expect him to need 3 hard drives, 2 graphic cards, water cooling systems, 1000W PSU in the next 3 years. Micro-ATX seems to be the sweet spot for sufficient expansion flexibility and efficient space. I also wanted a good quality case. My last one was partially made of plastics (it had two plastic stands to stand up the main case that recently broke). I want to build a cost effective, high quality minecraft PC that has more than enough power to make him happy for Xmas.
For this purpose, this computer case is really PERFECT. What I like about it:
1. Quality build: The whole case except for the front cover is made of metal (not sure what type), and painted evenly with black paint. This is much nicer than a "high-end" Dell XPS I saw in Costco. The screws that come with the case also seem to have high quality. The two pre-installed fans are made by Cooler Master, not a no-name maker. That's reassuring to me. The fans are very quiet, too.
2. Surprisingly large space: This is a case for Micro-ATX motherboard, or the smaller mini-ITX. But the space left after you install the motherboard is surprisingly large to me. Usually small cases have trouble installing large graphics cards. For that reason, I was going to compromise for a single-fan Gigabyte GTX 960. The heat dissipation probably isn't very good, but I wanted to build a small computer. Then I found this case that can easily support Gigabyte GTX 960 Windforce (the 2-fan model). The case layout is very smart. It positions the 5.0 and 3.5 internal bays on top, the PSU and additional hard-drive bays at the bottom. So the middle part is wide open. You effectively have the entire front to back case depth to install your graphic card. It handles my Gigabyte with so much easy. I suspect I could've installed a 3-fan model if I had wanted to. And then on storage bays, I have a DVD drive, a hard drive only, which I put all on the top internal bay. There is another internal rack that can host 3 3.5 HDs. I doubt I'd ever need that many drives. In total, with 1 DVD rom, 1 HD, 1 mATX motherboard, 1 2-fan graphic card, 1 WIFI PCI card, 1 mTAX 450X PSU, the stock CPU fan, the case inside doesn't seem crowded at all. It's not empty, just well utilized. Very smart design for a mATX case.
3. Reasonable cost: 49.99. If you buy from newegg, I saw a $20 rebate. I just skipped the hassle and bought here. This is a pretty decent price.
What I don't like about it:
1. It supports ATX PSU. This would be a plus to most people because of the ATX PSU flexibility and power. I already have a mATX PSU. Thus I needed a converter plate. Fortunately I saved the mATX to ATX converter plate that came with my PSU (which I bought a year ago). It didn't turn out to be an issue for me, but if I had bought my PSU many years ago, or it came from another pre-assembled PC, I would've been out of luck. My point is, this is a mATX case. It's great that it can support ATX PSU, but it should include a converter for mATX PSU.
2. The HD audio head for the front audio panel got broken when I tried to install / uninstall / reinstall it over the 2 days as I received several upgrade components (e.g. the WIFI PCI card). Because of the limited space, I needed to unplug the head from the motherboard a couple of times to make room. It was really hard to reach the head itself, so I pulled the wire attached to the head. After a few times, the speaker wire came off. I was able to fix it myself in 30 minutes. But it worried me a little at first that I had to buy another case. Net net, this might not be the vendor's fault, but I wished the wire fixture were stronger. Next time I will be very careful.
In summary, this case is great for me: a minimalist and (somewhat) perfectionist. It has just enough space (and a little extra) for a high quality mTAX build with high-end graphic cards, quality and quiet fans and case build quality and materials, and at a good price. If you want a monster case to play with constant upgrades, this might not be for you. I just wanted a good case for a good 10-year old boy's game PC and then be done with it. This worked really well for me. My son is super happy. :-)
Pro tip: Some have mentioned their dislike for the power button/ logo lighting up. I agree, it looks obtrusive. So I recommend not plugging in the "power LED" leads to the motherboard. That leaves the indicator light off and gives off a more professional effect. besides you can still see the computer is on just by looking at the hard drive status indicator on the side.
