All around great looking case. it is easy to work in. However, the hard drive mounting configuration is terrible. With a graphics card you can only fit one 3.5" HDD. 2.5" drives are recommended and even then it's rough. Other than that, good case

Overall I was quite satisfied with this case: it has a clean, sleek look; it's low profile; and the build quality is solid. I do have a couple complaints however. First, this things has no room at all behind the back panel for cable management, which is a complete nightmare. Secondly, it was a pain to mount my micro atx mobo in here. The drive cages, which are not easy to remove, made it nearly impossible to mount this thing in properly. Nonetheless, I am quite satisfied still because of the low price of this case.

Getting the 9.6'' by 9.6'' motherboard in was scary but I like the simple design of this case. I like the direct airflow to the motherboard without the drives getting in the way. Perfect for office work, no fancy distractions. No reset button though.

This case has great aesthetics, however it has absolutely no cable management space behind the motherboard tray, and the drive mounting solution is exotic to say the least. These disadvantages are made up for by the brilliant price

Not bad to build in but kinda tiny

from completed build 1st Build. Fractal Core 1100

In my opinion: Pros: 175mm width, which means very slim mini-ATX capable case; space for 3 2.5" SSD and 2 5"drives; Top PSU mount helps with ventilation I suppose; Comes with one simple 120mm intake fan.

Cons: no cable management. limited options for fans: 120mm front, 92mm rear and 120mm side. Cannot put side fan with the GPU card I'm using. limited options for CPU tower coolers: Cooler master T2 was a fit but better to use low-profile ones.

Over-all I am happy with this case.
