Rated 4 out of 5 by wAZZin Good choice for a tiny but powerful PC
Luckily PSU can cope with my new Core i5 6600K and EVGA 980Ti.
PSU is not that loud, could be worse. Some people replace its fan with Noctua.
HDD cage should be removable to ease Mini ITX board installation process.
I really wish it was slimmer, just with 2.5 HDD bays for SSDs, coz space allows.
Anyway it fits my backpack and the system inside is far more powerful than any gaming laptop))

Rated 2 out of 5 by Darrecky Good case, poor PSU
Case itself is best in its class, very small and looking nice. Problem is the PSU itself or to be more precise its fan. It is very small and very loud. Loud on idle, on full load it sounds like a hair dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DIZZYDAZZLER Fantastic little case that does the job and does it smart!
I am now a converted Mini ITX man since this case came out. Its a great little case that can accommodate my GTX780 with ease.
The power supply is tiny and extremely quiet, along with the fans in the roof.
I recommend this case to someone that wants a powerful, smart and small PC.

This is a beautifully designed and executed case. I shall be building with it again as I already have a queue of builds just from the looks people are getting of it. It is a little heavier than I expected but I'm glad of that as it is very sturdy. If you use a motherboard with an mSATA connector and an mSATA SSD for a boot drive there is room for a huge 2-drive RAID 1 for data. The built in PSU is very high quality and is whisper quiet even under high load although during boot the fan inside the PSU spins at max revs for 2 seconds before winding right down to barely audible.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Guest Very slick case...but a pain to build
I'll say upfront this case can be loud. BUT not because of the server-sized PSU fan that sits at the back of the case. Noise seems more to be from the limited clearance available to the GPU. So, GPU temperatures aren't great either.
Pros: very good looking case - probably the best solution to a mini-ITX performance build if you're willing to put the effort in. Silverstone's SG08 is probably better in terms of cooling and case layout but it does look like half a microwave.
Cons: Like I mentioned the noise can be quite irritating - but it's not a problem if you have headphones like me. Not much room for cable management. HD Audio cable isn't 100% shielded but I've seen worse. Would have been nice if HDD cage was modular.
p.s. if at all possible install the CPU cooler (especially if it's a tower cooler) AFTER you've installed the mobo and plugged in the cables and everything else, otherwise it becomes a massive PAIN to manoeuvre around the case and plug in the cables.
And no, you can't ever fit a liquid cooler in this one. Wait for the hadron hydro.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mritx94 great product but be weary of fans
Great build quality
Small but not too small
Fans are sharp even can cut even if not spinning
some internal parts of case not painted
slim slot loading drive needed
usb 3 header might not reach depending on placement on motherboard and if you have tall Cpu cooler
