Now the good part:
- It's small.
- It's quiet. Stock fan is one speed, 3-pin, and ~1000 RPM)
- Great design.
- Things fit and line up as they should.
- PSU has given me no problems.
Probably overkill, but for mine, I used an Intel i7 CPU on a Asrock z68 motherboard.
A Corsair H60 liquid cooler with radiator (purchased separately) keeps it chilly and does fit *if you mount the fan outside and the radiator inside the case (where the stock fan goes). Add a wire fan guard and it actually looks pretty sweet and retro. It's extremely quiet and I've not seen it above 32C with the fan at the lowest speed. You will need four easy to find 6-32 x 3" screws to mount the H60 cooler if you choose to go this route.
I will definitely be buying another one of these as soon as I can come up with an excuse for another PC!
So about this case, I can hear it from across the room, and that's sad. I might replace the fan. My previous nocturnal fan was dead quiet. The HDD LED was DOA from the factory. I even tried reversing the leads just in case it was soldered in backwards, but nope. It's dead. Looses a star.....
All-in-all: Nice well built case, but there's a few of things I would have designed differently. There is enough volume inside the box for 4 whole laptop drives or ssd's but there aren't that many brackets. I think optical drives are history now with the advent of Steam, Netfix, Hulu and Amazon, and would rather see more internal storage vs. an optical drive.
Installed the Zalman. It has about 2 cm gap between power box fan and the cpu fan. The two fans pull air away from each other. At higher CPM fan speed. I can feel the reduction of the air coming out from the Power box. I'm running at the lowest CPU fan speed. 95watt cpu temperature runs at 34~44c.
Con: The HDD status and power LEDs are too bright.why why why

The case is built well. Power supply is enough for what I need to do. stock 120mm cooler is adequate to have a passive heatsink on my CPUs.

Corsair H60 Liquid Cooler

Everything fit nicely and the case feels solid. I was hoping amazon would have the bitfenix prodigy, but this will do. Great little case!
Of course things are a bit tight when building an ITX system, but that is expected. I would have liked a full size optical drive, but I understand a SFF case requires some compromise. The power LED is very bright when watching TV in a dark room - I used a sharpie to dim the light but still leave it visible.

It's small and cheap. The power supply is decent. It is very difficult to fit a decent graphics card in the case (make sure its <9" long) if you want to also put a 3. Read morePublished on May 9, 2013 by Nick Bonfatti

I bought this case for a ITX home gaming build and it works great. The build is very good. The main fan also comes with a dust filter. The case also was able to hold my GTX 460 SE. Read morePublished on July 7, 2012 by Brandon Catubig
