    from completed build The Maverick V 2.5 Compact Power

    this is a fantastic case, i was able to fit a hyper212 evo in there an then i later converted to a full custom watercooling loop with 480mm of effective radiator and a gtx 1080 FTW. there are some this that aren't super great though, if your trying to cramp alot of cables in the back it can get cramped really quick if you have that 3.6 slot occupied and the window scratches easily, but other than that i really enjoyed building in it. hope this helped

    Gorgeous little case and half the reason I wanted to go Mini-ITX in the first place. It was a joy to build in and has just the right amount of amenities to make a first-timer like me comfortable with the build process.

    Excellent case, very easy to work with, quiet, and understated looks. Love the included velcro straps, the included fan splitter, and the sound-dampening foam. Only complaint is that there's no top dust filter if you remove the top Moduvent cover.

    This really is an incredible case and I got it while it was on sale on Newegg. I love the small form factor of it and I was able to fit my massive 180mm PSU in there without to much difficulty. Obviously though, I would suggest getting a smaller PSU for it, but I already had my big one from my previous build and didn't want to spend extra for a new one. Only gripe is the lack of a dust filter for the top air vents.

    Great case at a great price. Looks great and performs well with adequate air flow and the option to create a custom water cooling loop is amazing for an ITX build.

    The lack of a fan hub is disappointing however as being able to place up to 6 chassis fans with ITX motherboards that generally are only equipped with two 4 pin fan headers is a must have.

    from completed build Deep Dragon

    A bit overrated case. I paid a premium price here in China for this “Swedish” design just to learn that it was made in neighboring Dongguan. And the quality is not very Scandinavian. Especially the window: the plastic glass is so soft, you can literally scratch it with a napkin! But I must admit: this case made my first build easy.

    from completed build Nano sRGB - small dev pc updated

    Amazing case. Great look and build quality. However, if you are building an absolutely silent PC, choose windowless variant.

    At first I wanted to do a small form factor build but I didn't want to spend the money on an Ncase or a Dan A4, which both also had long wait times for shipping. Instead, I decided to find a more mass produced case. The smallest case I liked that would still fit a 280mm radiator for a Kraken x61 was the Fractal Design Define Nano S. It also had dust filters and sound dampening lining which were all things I was looking for. Add a window panel on one side and for me this was the perfect case. The cable management is very easy with the included accessories.

    FANTASTIC case! It's not too small, easy to work in, amazing cable management, and support for long GPUs and even a full custom water cooling loop! Truly awesome. If you're looking for a small(er) system, definitely check this out.

    from completed build Mini Behemoth 2.0

    Good, but one of the motherboard screws hole got stripped. I got some pwm fans because the stock fans were a bit noisy.
