from completed build Cheapotastic build

Cons: Poor air circulation. There is one fan in the front, one on the side. The side fan makes a lot of noise. Disabling it raises the temperature. The connectors on the motherboard happen to be just next to the side fan. So it is not really efficient in moving air because it is blocked out. The PSU goes on top of motherboard and that design limits your choices of cooling solutions. I had to pick a low profile CPU cooler. So that hinders access to one of the RAM slots because it is broad. And you cannot use high profile RAM. It has support for liquid cooling in theory, but I believe you have to mount it externally. Cable management is adequate but it is not neat. Modular PSU will help with that case. I would not recommend this case for high temp CPUs. This could potentially work for Kabini and Celeron HTPC builds but for me it was a let down. Rebate process was long but it could be Newegg's fault. I would spend more and get something that is larger.

It is pretty small and with some mods could be a good HTPC. But then again, you can spend more and get something better to begin with.
