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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Capable of housing a very powerful pc Just built a i7, Nvidia 1070 beast using this case. Look great and very quiet. Most people have pointed out the PSU issue - smaller is definitely better. I reckon its 160 max without some serious cable bending if you're fitting a big graphics card. I dont think a 2.5 width card would fit well either as it would probably catch on the side of the case. The 1070 i bought was 2 slots wide (evga) and fits no problem. Also you lose a couple of HDD mounts putting in a big gpu. I fitted the seidon v2 aio water cooler for the CPU, the radiator and fan fits easily into the space where the normal 140 mm fan goes plus a couple of cm outward into the box. Fitted fine and the small CPU block means great airflow from the fans. Build quality of the case is good and nothing went seriously wrong during the build. It's tight in there but cable wraps keep everything tidy. The case itself is very sturdy and absolutely looks the business now its up and running. A great case to build a very powerful and quiet pc than doesnt take up acres of space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little case I bought this case as a first time builder and I'm really impressed. The build quality fells extremely high and it is small enough to be moved easily from the office desk to under the TV. The ability to have 4 HDD + GPU in such a small case is really nice, although a bit of a squeeze! The only reason the 'Value' rating is not higher is that there are other cube cases out there that do a similar job for less, however, none look anywhere near as good in my opinion so I was willing to pay a little bit extra. I highly recommend this case, however I would urge caution with the choice of power supply. I was putting in what essentially a reference GTX 1080, which leaves little room for the PSU cables. If you are getting a mini GPU it will be fine with most PSUs, however, with a full size GPU even a 150 mm modular PSU would leave virtually no room for the cables, unless you have special 90 deg connectors. My advice would be to go with an SFX PSU or an ATX 140 mm long or less. In my mind the best little cube case out at the moment

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mini ITX case Really nice solid case. I've managed to fit 8 2.5 inch drives into the case. I used dual 2.5" caddies to allow two drives to be mounted in a 3.5" drive bay. I could fit a total of twelve 2.5" drives in the case - four per drive bay. The cables are a pain to route though. Because of the type of caddy I bought I had to secure the caddies by screwing into one of the drives which I had mounted into the caddy. I also had to alternate the caddies rotation so that one of each pair of caddies were cabled from the rear and one from the front. It's do-able but makes cable routing complex.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great high end case for HTPC and/or home server This case is gorgeous looking, very compact and extremely well made. Plenty of space for storage. Fans are very very quite on low or medium and only slightly audible on high. I have 6 HHD fitted with a 35W i5 and fan setting at low. All temp hover around 22-26 C running 24/7.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had specific requirements, all were met. I needed a pc i could take around as hand luggage on aeroplanes and could still pack a good punch. I fitted an r9 290 in it and a hybrid modular powersupply. Bit of a squeeze but it was all good. Make sure you use a hybrid modular power supply with this because full modular cables will be obstructed by the graphics card in this case. Ample space for cooling and harddrives, dust filters on every intake. Looks sleek, its small and it fits almost any sized gpu.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Case - Amazing Price The case itself is amazing, it looks superb and the build quality is fantastic too, its really well priced and tbh quite the bargain imo. Building inside the case was easy but difficult at the same time lol I'm quite the perfectionist and wanted cables tucked out the way and routed properly so this made it more difficult for me. if you want to build a gaming pc with this case then do be aware that you will loose 1 HDD cage unless you opt for an ITX GFX card then you may be able to squeeze them all in but i think 6 hdd's is a bit overkill in a case like this anyway. i am really please i chose this case, but be aware of PSU size, i have installed a corsair C500m and it fits quite nicely... the problem is that when you install a GFX card it cuts across the wire side of the PSU so if your card is too long it will hit the wires and not fit, unless the PSU is shorter and allows the room. the case fans that you get with it are pretty good as well, i have them all connected to the built in fan controller on the back of the case, i just have them on low setting and i cannot hear them, even on medium or high they are pretty quiet too. theres nothing that i can think of that i think is a bad point to the case, it really is perfect for me...

Can I fit an optical drive into this case?

Does this case support a native optical drive being fitted (and be accessible) or will you need a USB one?
Asked by: Shutts
This case has no optical drive bay. If you need an optical drive it would have to be a USB one.
