    from completed build Little Black Box

    I love this case so much. I've chosen a lot of cases for this build over the months, but I settled on this mini-ITX tower because of space and portability. It looks neat and everything fits inside nicely. Easy to take apart and put back together with room for upgrades.

    Got it for 24.99 at Micro Center. It was a refurbished deal. There were no missing pieces or damaged parts on this case. I’ve worked in this case before and I love it. Tons of space and has a very clean look.

    from completed build Mini ITX-size matters

    The price is great. Size is perfect if you want a small case but still want a full size video card. There is plenty of room to fit any 120mm water cooler. Lots of ssd space. My only complaint about this case is the 3-pin fans.

    Definitely limits your CPU cooler height significantly with how the power supply is mounted, and the cable management can be really tricky, but all in all I loved building in this case, and it fits my build well.

    Great little case. It has just enough room to fit the latest high-end components, including a full-sized video card and closed-loop CPU water cooling. The generous amount of mesh openings all over the case do a pretty good job in aiding airflow as well. I'm having no issues keeping an i7-6700k (with Corsair H80i v2 cooler) and GTX1080 at reasonable temperatures, even with overclocking.

    I didn't find any sharp edges inside, which was a big plus considering how much time I had to spend carefully routing cables around. This case will require a lot of patience and planning to make everything work well, but it's worth it if you want a solid small form-factor PC. The only significant thing I don't like about this case is the side case fan, which is a little lackluster in terms of positioning and quality. I'll probably be replacing it later.

    This case is really amazing for an MITX build with some great innovation in cable management. So much that certain features I think should be a staple in most MITX cases (like the "bar" that if used is highly useful and if you don't want or need it, can be easily removed; simple but supremely effective). It has great airflow and is of a portable size without becoming too cramped or edging into HTPC territory.

    from completed build Black Ice HTPC

    It JUST fits in my TV stand, I mean I can cram a few sheets of paper on top of the case to the shelf above it. Air flow plan on this is in through the front and out the back. Should not have any temperature issues especially since it's a really low powered system. Cable management was a nightmare in this case with no place to tuck cables and a non modular PSU. I did what I could to manage cables but at least I won't have to worry about them blocking airflow. My largest gripe is when I got it the case badge was MISSING and all it had in its place was an ugly glob of glue. The case badge was not even in the packaging it came shipped in. I knocked some stars off for lack of quality control.

    The first thing I noticed when I got this case is, man, is it small. Now it isn't the smallest case but when I was looking at it on youtube I thought it would be fairly small but it is really compact. It is made of steel with some plastic on the front and includes 1 120mm intake fan and 1 80mm intake fan. There was also little to no flex when I tried stressing the case with my hands, so +1 to CM. I removed the smaller fan since it got in the way of some cables. Once I took the smaller fan out though building in it was fairly easy. My biggest gripe with this case though is that the dust filters are pretty bad. Non-existent on the sides with one in front and one on top. The one on front isn't too bad but the one on the top covering the PSU fan is terrible. The wholes are just too bug. Also, fitting my second HDD into here was a pain since, due to it being a small case, there was very little room for me to move about since I had wires all over the side where I needed to mount it. However, that is excusable due to the small nature of this case.

    For those TLDR people, here is a summary:

    Pros- Small and compact Professional look Sweet blue power button (more of a personal thing) Good exhaust for your GPU

    Cons- PSU placement is a bit dodgy; it sits right above the motherboard and CPU Lack of proper filters

    from completed build Praying Box...

    If you are looking for a Mini-ITX that doesn't break the bank and has a 5.25 slot then this is probably the case for you... now do you live in a very dusty environment? Then this case is not for you. Too many air openings which is great but none of them are protected which means a lot of dust. But as long as you keep it clean here and there you should be fine. The USB 3.0 cable for the front IO is extremely stiff so keep that in mind and they could have added in a little more cable management little openings to put zip ties and what not. The feet are plasticky as well which means fi you have this in a polished place it will slide around. Overall though an okay case for the price.

    Good case, easy to work in, side panels stupid to put on.
