Effortless to operate with. I like the tunnel for the CPU fan. Energy provide is OK. Drives interfere with RAM installation. Power supply could be far more powerful.

The most compact desktop case supporting complete size* expansion cards.Amazing value.*the length may possibly be a difficulty, but height is not. 3rd party PSUs don't fit. Would have to get the Antec NSK2480 to meet that criteria (I believe). The disc drive cover issue in the top 5 1ǚ" bay is not removable. I installed a motherboard with a single row of connectors: Biostar P4M900M4 so was capable to replace the rear fan with a larger one (dips to exactly where the parallel connector would otherwise be). Filled the case to the brim: two DVD drives, floppy/card reader, 2 SATA HDDs, Radeon HD3450, Engenius WiFi, and Siig Firewire card. Every connector from the energy provide is utilised.

Extremely Nice Looking case about 2Ǚ the size of a standard desktop case. Black Steel finish (except for plastic face) is handsome. Simple to get compentents into, if you load HDD initially then the MB. No problem with the complete sized DVD (external) bays. A SD card reader fit in the two upper (restricted) HDD bays. The front LED , Audio and USB's are nicely hidden or understated. And it was cheap. Has bays for four HDD Drives, but only two bays can be used for full sized HDD's. The MB gets in the way on the other bays. I was planning performing a RAID 5 or 10 so that was a bit of an let down. Also there is no documentation on the small 250 watt energy supply. My version did not have an 1 / switch on the PSU. Not that it truly matters. Just found it odd. The RMA course of action was genuinely fairly painless. The frist case I got in was damanged in the course of shipping. I called, they said no dilemma, sent me an e-mail with the UPS label for the return. The entire conversation was significantly less than a minute. Got the new case inside a week.

I am pleased with this item it was exceptional for the price tag, but I am going to detail far more in the cons because this data is what would have helped me most when I was going to buy the unit. This box has a lot of space contemplating it is a Little Form Aspect. I purchased it mainly because it was little but could have full size cards for expansion. It handles the space pretty effectively and it has two places for CD-ROM Drives. There is enough Airflow to help extra Fans and it is a reasonably clean style. 1. It is reasonably tool less, but I significantly favor acquiring selections to screw items in and in this case there are not enough. 2. The CD-ROM Bays use sliders that do not require screws and it is actually functional but does not perform with my Removable HDD Bay.3. The rear of the case utilizes a 60mm LOUD fan. I extremely recommend receiving two, reduce speed, quieter 60mm Fans. There is adequate space to install them.4. If you are thinking about placing a floppy in this unit, think quite very carefully about what ones. The motherboard and the floppy drive I purchased did not function together, I switched it out with an additional Floppy/Card Reader and that one particular worked excellent. It is about the space among the end of the drive and the cables on the motherboard. Don’t let my cons discourage you, this is a excellent case for the value, just strategy accordingly.

Nice and strong structure, the LEDs are not also intrusive for HTPC, great technique for mounting drives with out a screwdriver The largest con was the SATA ports on my MB faced the HDD cage straight. This properly eliminates placing additional than two drives in the bay. Second, the expansion board clips are break-away. They get tweaked on removal and can not be replaced if you decide to vacate that slot.

Low-cost but tough remedy. Slimmer than most towers. PSU fan is silent. Air tunnel integrated for side panel vent. Converts simply from tower to desktop. Broke one of the plastic clips that enables you to secure and eliminate the side panels without screws. Screwless choice for internal drives is a joke -- there's clips for only a single side and it leaves the drives really loose inside the cage. Power supply placement suggests the PSU won't be aiding in cooling if the case is employed as a tower. The optical drive cover is a bit silly and doesn't usually close the entire way -- I'd rather have a regular 5.25" panel that I could take out. 60mm fan is a no-no if you want silent operation. The major internal three.five" drive slot has a removable internal bezel -- why? And why is there one MicroATX stand-off that needs a screw-in stand-off when the rest of the holes are designed otherwise?

The motherboard was simple to mount, a lot of PSU connections. Can be employed horizontal or vertical. Solid metal, straightforward to access inside. LOUD case fan. Immediately after paring it with the intel atom board, it's actual loud. I'm tossing the 60mm fan and receiving a 100mm one for the side. Excellent cost, solid style.

When I bought this situation, I planned for a mATX MB for a compact system and initially I probably would have rated it 4 Eggs. But as I have developed the technique, I have learned sufficient and accomplished adequate to the situation (little stuff) to make it a seriously great compact method.A mATX MB "will" fit, but truly makes it difficult to place larger PCI/video board in and and reduce ideal corner of the MB (read SATA plugs and front panel jumpers) wreak havoc with the tricky drives. So I used a mini-itx board and now I have space for 3 three.five HDs and can still place a card reader in the external three.five slot. I wouldn't contemplate it adequate of a con to drop and egg, but I have also worked on ventilation. Comes with only a 60 mm far in the back (marginal). I had added an 80 mm more than the MB/CPU and have a couple of fans I can mount behind the front panel more than the HDs if needed. I took out the screwless HD brackets and redrilled the drive cage holes to make screw installation of HDs perform effectively. Overall, it has been an interesting project and I have a whale of a good compact Pc now.

Inexpensive strong situation for a micro-ATX setup. I required one that could assistance two tricky drives and it handles them fine. Effortless to assemble components in it. 250W energy provide appears to function fine (I did have to replace it in a second program I built with a much more strong graphics card). The rear case fan is loud! I actually stopped utilizing the rear situation fan, and the process temperature holds steady at about 35C no matter what I throw at it.

This isn't the fanciest case produced with the highest polish supplies, but anything is incredibly good good quality. For the cash, this situation is an excellent value. Stamped edges are all burr cost-free, which implies you can perform safely with out fearing for your hands. I thought I may possibly need to have a various energy provide, but the included a single is extremely quiet and does the job. I will, nevertheless, will need to buy some new fans - the included 60mm fan is LOUD. I quiet it down with Speedfan but could do better with a couple new ones. The specs on the Newegg and Apex internet websites are incorrect! This situation isn't 14.6" deep - it's 15.6". I bought this case especially simply because it's below 15" for my cabinet. Fortunately I can stick it out the back panel of the cabinet by a hole I cut for ventilation. Finding out right after the reality was Incredibly disappointing. In spite of being deeper than I believed, I stuck with it since for the income, the situation serves me really well as a HTPC enclosure. It looks like it was in fact designed to sit horizontally, and you can't say that for most SFF style instances (except for committed HTPC style). I actually don't thoughts the DVD drive door that other reviewers complained about considering that it provides the front a clean appear in my cabinet.

Very good, simple case. Energy provide is adequate for a Pentium Dual Core and an ATi Radeon 4650. Straightforward to work in -- a genuine plus for a micro-ATX form. A tad over height for a media center situation. Incredibly good for a fundamental micro-ATX case for general desktop use.

Fantastic cost for a small case with a PSU. It will take full size add-on cards which saved me purchasing a new video and wireless card. Feels a tiny flimsy when taken apart but sturdy adequate when assembled. However you get what you spend for. The PSU didn't even make it via a windows set up. I have a Micro-ATX mobo with a Core 2 Duo and an HD4350 card in it, one HDD and a DVD drive. I temporarily connected a different 250W PSU which has been operating fine ever considering that. Rather of paying to ship the complete case and PSU back and then becoming without a case for who knows how long I decided to just get a top quality PSU. Of course the selections are limited for an SFX12V, but I got a Seasonic and I'm sure it'll final a long time. I wouldn't acquire this again unless perhaps it was for an Atom or low powered AMD system with integrated graphics.

Perfect mixture of smallish size and but can hold two five 1ǚ" drives and 3 3.5 HDD (or two with floppy or card reader). Operates with both mini-ITX and mini-ATX formats. I'm utilizing a mini-ITX board and there is lots of space to work in it for a small case. A bit flimsy when you take all the covers off and start cramming all your hardware in there, but that is to be expected on a case with included power provide for ฺ. 1 fan included on the back is loud - fortunately I had a fan speed contoller that I wired up to support quiet it down. I mounted a 92mm fan on the front of the case among the metal frame and plastic front cover for a lot more airflow and it fits excellent. This is a wonderful compact case for my Windows Household Server.Other info: ZOTAC GeForce 8200-ITX Wi-Fi MB, 2 GB Mushkin DDR2-800 RAM, AMD Athlon II X2 250 AM3, two 400GB Seagate drives internal and 8TB External storage attached by way of Rosewill eight-bay esata drive enclosure.

SPACE SAVER! I dont know if anybody else that buys this case has gaming in thoughts,i didnt when i was building it, but its capability to deal with a gaming system has blown my mind... This case and power supply is able to power my E7200 Oc to 3.1ghz , two case fans , 2 gig ddr800, and my 8800GS XXX alpha dog vid card... The clips are kinda inexpensive but there are screws as well so its ok with me... Also the powersupply is SFX and kinda tough to locate if u require additional power but i think the power is fine... definately recommend to anyone...

This case is only 13" in height, 250W power supply and 60mm rear fan included, takes mini-itx and micro-atx board and nevertheless look smaller and compact. External 5.25" bay cover is not removable (top or left side), rear fan is a little noisy when in full load, the case is sturdy but the front cover has a affordable feel to it. Maybe I'm just applied to the high end cases. I pop off the front cover and placed an 80mm fan in the front-bottom vent for air intake. Mount the fan on the "outside" of the metal frame, then location the cover more than it. You might have to cut a slot into the frame in order to align the holes.

This is exactly what I necessary for the small file server I'm constructing. It arrived in ideal shape.The power provide fan is so quiet that you can't even hear it. There are only two power connectors for sata drives, so I'm going to have to get a cable conversion from the 4 pin standard to sata power. The fan is loud; but I put one of those resisters that lowers the fan speed down on the finish of the fan power connector. Now I can hardly hear it. I also moved it from the back to the side exactly where it could blow straight onto my ITX AT3IONT board.

Tiny mATX case with enough space to cram in four internal 3.five" drives. Power supply fan is quiet. Nicely built for a affordable case. Loud 60mm case fan. 100 ohm 1w resister quieted it down, and moves more than adequate air for my Via C7.

Low cost, holds everything I needed it to. Very good internal drive storage for future expansion. Only two small platic tabs hold the DVD drive bay door on. 1 was already broken when received. Side Note: I utilised this with a Zotac Atom/Ion MB that includes a 90W power supply. You will will need an extension for the SATA energy connectors to reach the challenging drives.

Picked this case up from a neighborhood retailer to save on shipping, had to come here to review it. Case was the best size for my daughter's desk, really solid steel construction. Modest and compact, all connectors are easily identifiable so no will need for instructions.Other reviewers stated the front panel cd/usb/floppy door material is too thin, but I'd disagree. They're a common plastic thickness and will final, taking into consideration you don't rough-house your personal computer. No problems with the eject button reaching my dvd drive button; lined up perfectly. The speaker isn't mounted in the case; its a small speaker with about three inches of wire to the connector (basically hangs off of the mobo.)Tough drive brackets don't supply a solid mount (there is slight play), wouldn't advocate employing brackets if you move your computer about (gaming, and so on.) Plastic connectors can be removed and there are screw holes for a standard mount, so thats a plus. Outstanding bang for the buck, I'd definately suggest.

Excellent use of space--has a smaller footprint but can comfortably fit at least 2 difficult drives, an optical, floppy, and a mini-ATX or smaller motherboard. The power supply fan is surprisingly quiet. High bang for the buck. Middle-of-the-road really feel...not frail per se, but not exactly solid either. Also, the included case fan is way too loud for the cooling power. Still, this is an acceptable trade-off for the superb value. I acquired this and a handful of others for generating mini-ITX builds, and so far this is the winner. For the income, you get a decently nicely built case with a lot of space balanced by low size, and the included power provide works well for an ITX system (tested with a Via VB7001 and an Intel D201GLY2). I removed their case fan and put in a silent 80mm, and it's given that hummed along quietly and conveniently.

Fairly sturdy, but not centurion sturdy. Clever style. Light for carrying. Very good for cheapo HTPC. Will fit in a (now discontinued) Powercolor 2400 Pro PCI graphics card, given fit with your motherboard. Power supply is incredibly quiet. Apex Energy supply not 80+--comparatively low efficiency, lacks rear energy switch. Power supply on the bottom--inconvenient for a energy supply with a switch. 60mm OEM fan was OK, but, Van___ Stealth aftermarket fan is substantially a lot more silent. . I now use this, with the By way of ITX board, for a linux program in my workplace. So, the 2400 Radeon card now is in storage. I did acquire the Sea___ 350W SFW 80+ energy supply for saving on electric--it at present has been installed due to the fact 2008. The Apex OEM energy supply turned out to be a lot far more silent, on the other hand--I was surprised by this--nonetheless own the Apex PS.

Fit and finish excellent--excellent metal. Solid, top quality really feel. Light, not bulky--fairly uncomplicated to carry (say, for a girl or woman). Wonderful economical choice for a really rudimentary program for the non-gamer--tech-challenged--usually-newbie. Included power supply virtually silent (can't hear from a few feet away). As mentioned, full-height cards could be applied; full-sized optical drives, also. Does have HD activity and power-on leds. Possibly could use in automobiles. Fan noise was noticeable, yet truly not that bad. Energy supply not extremely efficient, and doesn't have the on-off switch that I believe top quality power supplies should. Power supply form-factor truly is SFX (check Apex's item page from here), not mATX or ATX. Smaller inside--possibly longer vid card could "hit" DVD/cd-drive, even to the point of getting unable to install. Of course, overly limited # of bays and functions! I believe it would be fantastic if Apex would create an ATX "big brother" of this, or, greater yet, a complete line of similar items (maybe such as mid- and full-towers) very much the same, incorporating the identical high quality, yet bigger with the expected helpful, desired attributes. I use a power strip to cut power to the Apex PS. Employing a small Via ITX/matx Mainboard with the AMD "geode" proc, onboard "unichrome" vid, two pci-slots. (Now, I'm using a PCI BFG 6200 and a Zonet 2gb nic in those slots)--the PS handles this adequately in Kubuntu. As for the fan, replacing it and installing V@ntec's terrific 60mm Ste@lth eliminates noise to undetectable levels a few feet away. I'm going to try to use a S__sonic 80-plus SFX PS remedy (probably 300W) with this--I'll save funds over time and those PSes have energy switches. Also, I'll attempt a PCI Radeon 2400 video card. I'll relate back no matter whether they fit....

Looks like it will be precisely what I want, if I get one that isn't dented so badly that the side panels can\'t be removed. Received with two big dents on the bottom of the case. Initially I thought since it's not for a client, I'd keep it because the dents are on the bottom. But the dents are so bad that the panels can not be removed. My very first large (迀) order with New Egg. From what I've read, New Egg's RMA policy says that carrier harm won't be covered under an RMA. Regrettably their "immediate help customer service" is closed. Needless to say, any future purchase will depend on their replacing this case instantly. I hope to have a happy ending to submit soon.
