Rated 5 out of 5 by Phillfair Great value for money rack case
Wanted a silent case for audio editing and this is really good. It has 2 x USB3 sockets on the front panel, and is rack mountable - you need the RA02B rack kit for this. Only downside is it's a little lightweight and the fan it came with didn't work.
I think you can't go wrong with this - fabulous for the money!

This case is perfect for anyone who wants to bring back horizontal computing. Layout is great, well thought out, easy to access
Perfect for a discrete discreet PC build
The downside: this case is not designed for performance computing, it will not accept a large PSU and most importantly, it will not accept 240mm liquid cooling, unless you do what I did and attach fans on the outside of case

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nick51 Tidy HTPC Case
When I received this case I was surprised by the weight of the box, or absence thereof. I unpacked the box immediately thinking I had been given an empty box! The case itself is minimalist but well thought out with a plastic front panel. The quality of the case is good with brushed aluminium effect for the front panel. I did not mind the front panel being made of plastic as it was easy to drill the hole for the simerec module (not supplied). The case is supplied with one 120mm fan with spaces for a further two 120mm fans. The externally removable fan filters are a significant improvement on previous cases in the Grandia series. Building in the case was a pleasure with plenty of space to install components and work around. The complete system was built and installed in a day. The supplied screws for the motherboard were a little short in length; two of the screws would not catch the threads in the motherboard standoffs. This was not really a problem since there are plenty of spare screws in the kit. Overall this was my best experience so far in building an HTPC system. I highly recommend this case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Goatee Well built and nice to work in
Good ATX case even though only 27 litres. Not really designed for water cooling even though I managed to squeeze a 120 and a 240 in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Andy1983 Very good HTPC case
The case is around the size of a good quality AV receiver. The fact that it takes an ATX mobo is a bonus. However, it makes everything tight inside. My after-market cooler would not fit, I swapped it with a smaller one from another PC. This too does not fit properly. I'd recommend a flat after-market CPU cooler not an upright one, or a sealed hydro unit. The supplied Silverstone fan is very quiet too. The dust filters are a nice touch. The top of the unit though seems to be speckled in paint, I don't know if this is the finished spec or if it is over-spray.

I bought the case to build a HTPC.
It's a nicely build case, which with some prompts from the manual makes things easy to install.
Plenty of space for this type of case as it's full height.
It does say only 1x 2.5" bay - this technically isn't a bay as the HDD actually screws down to the base of the case, which actually makes things a little difficult as you need to hold the HDD with one hand and screw in from underneath the case with the other.
However, if you're creative enough there is actually enough space for a second 2.5" drive right next to the 'proper' bay.
the standard case fan that comes with it is quiet and does a nice job (i have it controlled via motherboard at 700rpm and can't hear it).
On a side note, I've just tested out both a GTX 570 and a GTX 970 in the case and they both fit with no issues (ASUS Z97M motherboard).

Rated 5 out of 5 by 71lloyd Best Case ever used
The build quality is excellent. No sharp edges like some I have had in the past. Strongly recommend.
