- It's white for a change. Aren't you sick of over 10 years of predominately black PC cases?
- It's steel, not aluminum. In my experience, aluminum cases are not as quiet (not as sound-proof) and the panels scratch easily.
- Good layout inside: PSU goes on the bottom level, motherboard sits on a tray above. This means you can fit a long PSU if need be. The case has a window, so with the motherboard tray being higher, you can see your components better through the top window if that's your thing.
- Interchangeable side, bottom and top panels. This means you can swap around which side you want the window displayed on. You can also remove the bottom panel if you need to access the bottom of your motherboard as well.
- Front 200mm fan. Because the layout of the case has the PSU on bottom and motherboard on top, the fan can cool both levels. I find this to be a bonus particularly with the new m.2 SSD slot located underneath most mini-ITX boards. So the fan will help keep your m.2 SSD just that little bit cooler as well. And for the record, I find the front fan very quiet. I am not distracted by it at all. The fan speed should be adjustable in BIOS, but I have not felt the need to do this.
- The case has a spot for 2x 80mm fans on the rear panel. But you really only need to add these if you're overclocking.
- Due to the internal layout, you've only got so much height for an aftermarket CPU cooler. 140mm max height, according to the specs. Only affects overclockers. I use the Noctua NH-L9x65 low profile cooler, and there's plenty of space. I even replaced the slimline fan on the cooler with a regular sized 92mm fan.
- Video card length can only be a max of 285mm. I have a GTX 950 in there with no problems. But GPUs are slowly starting to get smaller with some mini versions available (like the Radeon Nano and GTX 970 Mini), so there are alternatives.
- Front panel connectors are on the left, so this may affect where you put the case.
- Case has a window, so you many want to think about the color of some of your components (fans, sata cables, etc).
- It's a little tall for a mini-ITX case, but it's also not as deep/long as other ones. I found the inside to be mostly a pleasure to work with, since you've got a bit of room to move. This is likely due to the PSU being on the lower level, which makes the top much cleaner and roomier. I love mini-ITX but some cases are just too small compared to the components you're trying to throw in there (ATX PSU, full size GPU etc), so it makes them a hassle to work with. But I found this case to be a nice compromise.
- Quality control issues have been mentioned by other reviewers. I got two of these cases and one had a slightly warped side panel, so it wasn't quite as flush with the case as the other panels. One case had an issue with the front USB 3 plugs. The metal housing inside one of the plugs was bent a little, which would make it a slightly tighter fit when plugging something in.
- The thumbscrews are poor and cheaply made. They are metal/aluminum with a plastic outer covering. They feel light and cheap. However, I bought colored replacement thumbscrews anyway to match the case.
- The hard drive trays. This is my biggest complaint, although not a deal breaker - I would still buy the case again. The trays are secured with a thin metal wedge facing the inside of the case (see image). The wedge goes under a metal rail in the case. A bit like shoving a doorstop under a door, except imagine that the doorstop is metal and you're scraping the paint off your door every time you shove the doorstop in or pull it out. Likewise, you secure the hard disk tray by banging the wedge under the rail so it sticks there with friction only (rubbing the white paint off in the process). You then secure the top of the tray with a (cheap) thumbscrew. It's not a huge deal since most people would only remove it a couple times during the lifetime of the case. But it's just poor design.
There is an alternative. With this case you can secure a 2.5" to the side of the case using the side panel grill holes as screw holes. Not my preference (makes it awkward to remove the side panel easily), but it's an option if you don't want to use the drive trays, or want to use additional disks.
- The thumbscrew that secures one of the hard disk trays is *extremely* close to the motherboard (see image). I swear part of the thumbscrew was brushing against the motherboard when screwing it in. I guess the good thing about these cheap thumbscrews is that they have an outer plastic coating, so it doesn't damage anything. As mentioned before, I bought replacement thumbscrews, but I couldn't replace this particular screw since my new screws were slightly larger and it wouldn't fit with the motherboard right there. I removed that particular hard disk tray since I didn't need it, although I left the screw so there wasn't just an empty hole.
- The front panel power button is very close to the USB ports, and is very easy to trigger. A number of other reviews have mentioned this, so you just have to be careful when plugging something in. I've knocked it once when pulling out a USB drive, and of course my PC shutdown.
If you're looking for a white mini-ITX case, definitely consider this one. While there are a couple relatively minor issues, overall this case looks fresh and attractive, and has a smarter layout inside compared to some other cases. There is a black version of this case, but if you're looking at black, you might as well consider the myriad of alternatives from other manufacturers. This case is cheap in the US, but I wish they would've charged more and refined the internals of the case, rather than cutting corners. I would definitely buy it again though, given that white case options are limited.
The case was inCREDIBLY easy to work with. There's an ample chamber for the PSU, separate from the main area where you put the motherboard and other components. Unlike more expensive builds I've made using modular PSU's, i used an inexpensive (but good) PSU that required tucking the extra wires away for neatness. This was no problem with the sheer amount of extra room in the lower chamber.
The twin 3.5" drive brackets were easy to remove and served as a pretty convenient guide (along with strategic holes) to tie down some of the LED and fan wires. There were plenty of screws provided to attach all of the components I placed in the system.
The beauty of the system, aside from the massive amounts of room remarkable for such a small case, is that each of the three removable side panels can be placed in any position. This allows you to place the large glass viewing window on any side you wish. For people who like to make fancy rigs with internal LEDs, that's a bonus.
The system is also amazing at cooling. Great airflow and a massive, virtually silent fan complete the package. Seriously, if you're looking for a small-form-factor case this makes an outstanding alternative to the Bitfenix which tends to lead this category but which, I found, fluctuates wildly in price.
This, by far, is the easiest system build I've done to date.
