Chassis Airflow
Chassis Airflow
Date Issued: 20th Oct 2008

The modern PC is potentially a mass of heat output and heat production hot spots. With CPUs rated at more than 100W of heat output, single graphics boards carrying similar ratings (and people want to run two!), multiple hard drives the norm, lots of memory and mainboards covered in heatpipes to combat toasty core logic and PWM circuits, a PC appreciably warming up a room when it’s working hard is no joke.

CiT Barricade Mini Tower Computer Chassis, 80mm Fan, Headphone/Mic In, mATX, 2x USB 2.0/3.0, PSU is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good if you don't need external drive bays My two-year-old grandson loves to press buttons if he can reach them, so my aim was to rebuild my home office machine into a small case that could fit on the desk out of reach. This little CiT case fits the bill very well for a Micro-ATX based system. It is compact and light in weight, though strong enough, and seems well made. Fantastic value-for-money. The dimensions are not as small (165x350x285) as stated by Scan: The case is actually 180mm wide (inc side panel bulges) x 360 high (inc rubber feet) x 325 deep (including the essential front panel and the nice tool-free screws that secure the side panels at the rear). To be fair, I don't think you can make a M-ATX minitower much smaller (if it takes a full ATX power supply), but these real dimensions might be useful to compare with the CiT MX-A07, which comes with an ATX power supply and is quoted as being 350mm high and only 330mm deep: - not much different (if we can trust those stated figures?) The drive bracket swivels (almost) out of the way, but I removed it temporarily to have better access for fitting the mainboard and locating the front panel connections. You can fit two 3.5" drives if you want, but this seemed out of keeping with the light and compact unit, so I used a 2.5" HDD in addition to the main SSD. The vibration-damping drive grommets are a nice detail. The included rear fan is quiet enough when used with software to set quieter fan/temperature profiles. Using Gigabyte EasyTune6 software (supplied with my mainboard) produces error messages on boot-up in Windows 10. Having tried some alternatives, I just put up with ET6. You only have to click OK to the errors on boot-up: Then for fan speeds, it works fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dirt cheap and extremely compact with free 80mm fan Now first off this case is absolutely tiny and perfect for portable but powerful builds. It is cheap and comes with one 80mm fan (come on £17 and comes with a free fan?!) Just to note I rate quality as a factor of the price of the item. The material is just OK but at the price point I am surprised at the good build quality. My only gripe is that it has one 80mm exhaust fan placement which I personally think could have been made into a 120mm one as there is room and the tiny case needs it, especially if you stuff an i5 CPU and a dedicated GPU in it. At the time it kept on surprising me with all the features it comes with and such a ludicrously low price. There are channels for cable management and the back panel is even shaped to allow extra room for the cables. This little case is really full of features. Overall a cheap but good case. Get a GPU with rear IO plate exhaust as you cannot expect the tiny 80mm fan to cope with both a CPU and GPU heat exhaust by itself. You can also add another two 120mm fans to the front which I have done. I am currently running inside (a tight squeeze I must add): i5 6600k CPU Asus Z170M-PLUS Motherboard Noctua NH-L12 CPU Cooler 16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 3200MHz RAM XFX RX480 8GB Core Edition (rear IO exhaust) 500GB Samsung 840 Evo SSD 3TB HDD Corsair CS650M PSU A real powerhouse in such a tiny case.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Small. Really Small. To start with, the construction of this case is actually pretty good. It's mostly metal, with only the front panel being made out of plastic. The plastic used seems pretty durable. The front panel is fully meshed and can fit 2 120mm fans. The downside being that you have to install inside the main area of the case, which drastically reduces the already small space for any GPUs. Prior to installing a Motherboard, I was unable to fit a reference GTX 580 inside the chassis; after fitting the fans and motherboard, I struggled to fit a smaller TwinFrozr III HD7850. I was resigned to removing the lower of my two front fans. Furthermore, there is a lot of I/O on the front of this case, which means there is also a lot of cables, and nowhere to tidily route them for the most part. After building, airflow is nice, with only one fan in the front and one in the rear, temps are fairly low even using a stock cooler on an A10-7700 APU. The case is small enough to fit inside my TV cabinet with ease and makes a nice, aesthetically-pleasing addition to my living room. Overall, if you want a HTPC, or maybe an entry-level gaming PC, I would recommend this case. It's a great price for the quality. Just make sure you get a Modular Power Supply. You'll thank me later. (As for GPUs fitting in this case, a GTX750 Ti like this one: Or an R7 360 like this one: Would fit nicely. Out of the two, get the Nvidia or look for an R7 260X.)

Questions & Answers

What's the maximum length GPU that can fit in this case?

Asked by: pandauk
The internal space measures 275mm or so. Be aware though that the PSU fits at the bottom rear of this case, so that your ATX-to-Mainboard 24-pin power connector will have to reach over or around your graphics card and reach the motherboard socket, usually top right. 24-pin extensions are available, if needed, e.g. Silverstone brand from Scan.
