Be sure to do some research before you buy this (reading these reviews is a good start). I wouldn't just buy any Mini-ITX board and expect it to work well with this case. Many people complain about their CPU cooler not fitting in, or the switch cables not reaching the headers on their boards. I didn't have either of these problems with the Gigabyte Intel NM70 Dual-Core Celeron 1037U GA-C1037UN. If you are facing the rear of your board (where the IO ports are), you want the CPU closer to left center of the board (the hard drive mounting bracket that causes problems is towards the right when you're facing the rear). The hard drive bracket is removable, but mine came with a stripped screw so I couldn't easily remove it. You also want your power switch / LED PINs on the opposite (front-right) side of the board.
Pico PSU users: This case is said to be compatible with the Pico PSU power supplies. There are a few holes in the back of the case to stick the DC jack through. Based on some of the other reviews, a few people couldn't figure out how to properly mount the jack. It took me a while to figure it out: my PSU came with a panel mount type connector, which I had never installed before. It didn't quite fit either of the holes until I realized the back of the connector has a nut on it. You have to use a ratchet to get the nut off, thread the jack through one of the holes, then put the nut / washer back on to secure it to the case. I was kicking myself once I figured it out, but there are no instructions so the solution wasn't immediately obvious.
Opening the case was a bit tricky at first. The top of the case is secured by a single M3 sized, Phillips-head screw in the back. To open the case, you slide back the top part about an inch and pull upwards. I've found that it's easiest to open the case if I slide the top panel back slowly while pulling up from the front. For those who are considering replacing the rear case screw with a thumb screw, look for Lian Li case thumb screws. Most standard thumb screws are 6/32" so they won't fit in the M350, but Lian Li uses the slightly smaller M3 size for their cases. I ordered a few online and they work perfectly.
If you've ever built a computer before, you'll find the interior of the M350 to be very simple and straight-forward. There are three connectors for the power switch, power LED, and front USB ports. The M350 comes with a single 2.5" hard drive bracket that attaches across the top of the case. The bracket also doubles as a mount for two 40mm fans if you're not using a hard drive. You can buy a second bracket to mount across the other half of the case if your CPU cooler is short enough.
The plastic front panel is removable (after you take off the top metal panel) to reveal two horizontally pointed USB ports. It's a perfect spot to hide Wifi or wireless keyboard/mouse adapters. There's also a spot to mount another 40mm fan.
This seems obvious, but there is NO support for a slim optical drive nor is there a PCI/PCIe expansion slot. I've read forum posts where people actually ask about this. It's possible to install an operating system off a thumb drive (look to Google for instructions), or you can temporarily hook up a CD/DVD drive.
The system that I built in the M350 was an older Zotac IONITX-A-U Atom 330 with 2GB of RAM and an 80GB 2.5" hard drive. The SATA connectors for this particular motherboard sit directly below the hard drive bracket so a 6" SATA cable was the perfect length. You should also consider getting SATA cables with L-shaped connectors if you're very particular about cabling, but a standard straight connector works fine too.
+ About as small as an ITX case could possibly be.
+ Very good design that allows for plenty of airflow.
+ Incredibly solid build quality.
+ Versatile drive and 40mm fan bracket that will work for different motherboard layouts.
- The plastic front panel feels kind of cheap in comparison to the rest of the case.
- The power LEDs are amazingly bright. I'm going to dim them with a Sharpie.
- There's no easily accessible front USB port.
- Would have been nice to have mounting options for a thin 60mm or even 80mm fan.
* The rear case screw that secures the top panel is M3 sized. If you want to replace it with a thumbscrew, look for ones made for Lian Li cases, which conveniently come in black or silver to match the M350 color options.
* If you're buying 40mm fans for this case, you can fit a 40x40x20mm fan behind the front-bezel, but you'll probably want the slimmer 40x40x10mm fans for the internal brackets.
* If you want a small case that supports a slim optical drive and a low-profile PCI/PCIe card, take a look at the Antec ISK-300 series.
