    from completed build The Sleeping Colossus

    I had a very specific set of limitations: Wide enough so my cat wouldn't be able to knock it over, but compact enough to fit on a desk, yet roomy enough to take a full size cooler, graphics card, optical drive, and media card reader while still having good airflow. I also wanted the horizontal motherboard layout to eliminate the risk of component sag. This is probably one of the only cases that ticks all of those boxes, with enough space to fit everything above in the top compartment.

    The horizontal motherboard layout is made even better with the removable mobo tray, which works as well as you'd expect. the space on the bottom houses the power supply and the hard drive tray, which can take 4(!) drives. There's quite a bit of dead space in the bottom corner for another optional hard drive cage that never got released, which sucks, but overall the form factor was exactly what I needed. It also has more features than you can shake a stick at, with 4 USB ports, two of which are USB 3.0, and 4 included fans.

    The build quality, however, was hit and miss. The drive trays in particular are low quality, and I felt like they were going to break as I installed my 3.5 inch hdds. I also don't like the locking mechanism for the PCI brackets, which nearly broke my motherboard when a metal piece fell onto the board as I was installing my graphics card. There are also quite a lot of screws involved in terms of holding everything together, which is going to rub some people the wrong way.

    Honestly, this is probably a case that appeals to a very niche audience. My requirements are likely way too specific for most people, but if you happen to fall into my camp, where you want everything and have a cat that could potentially wreck, this is the perfect case for you despite the build issues. Everyone else need not apply and can pretend this is a 3-star.
