Rated 4 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good HTPC case - cable management is tricky This is my first HTPC build, this time for a Hackintosh, and overall I am happy with the ML05. There are plenty of reviews out there for you to google, I suggest you do before you buy this case - most of them are accurate. Cable management is tricky, especially the USB3 cable for the front USB3 socket panel - the cable is a bit too long and VERY stiff, and a bit tricky to manage... especially with fans on the side and using the multi-function bracket. I am using a Gigabyte GA-Z87N-WIFI board, with an i5 with this case, and the airflow is a bit tricky especially with a DVD drive attached underneath the multi-function bracket. The stock intel cooler simply won't cool the CPU in this case (and sounds like an airplane), so I went for a Noctua NH-L9i (also from Scan) which does the job very well and is very quiet. For extra system cooling, I also installed 2 Be Quiet 80mm PVM fans, which significantly help (and are inaudible), and are easy to install on the right side of the ML05. I combined the case with a 300W Silverstone ST30SF Strider SFX power supply, also from Scan. It fits perfectly in this case. I am very happy with this case, but did struggle a bit with cables - but I suspect most HTPC cases would also cause me to utter a few choice words while putting a system together! 02 September 2014

how strong is this case?

I'm wondering if I would be able to site a monitor on top of it?

Answer: 
Air vents are located n the top of the case so placing anything over these would not be recommended.

Answer: 
The case is likely sturdy enough (especially if you keep the support bracket installed), but I wouldn't put anything on top - the top case cover is extensively vented, and you do need these vents for adequate airflow. You will likely severely restrict airflow if you cover these vents, and cause your system temperature to rise.

Answer: 
Monitors don't really weigh a great deal, so in theory yes. However I'd highly advise you not to, as your PSU intake AND CPU cooler intake vents are on the top.

I found blocking the main top vent by installing a slim-slot-load dvd drive to the bracket really restricted cool air being drawn by my cpu cooler as it is.

Concerning the Slots for the 80mm fans.

Would these fans need to bring air inwards or push it outwards? I would assume inward given that the CPU fan will be pushing air out through the upper grid, but I just wanted to double check this.
