I really like this case, especially for that sort of price. My brother in law is wanting a small form factor gaming build for use in the living room, this could be the case to use I think.

Nice chassis, I just bought myself a Corsair 650D last week, it's the biggest thing I've ever seen!

Great review as always Hilbert!!

If it was a little higher you could have a 120mm rear fan and 240mm in front for some custom watercooling, only not so much room for a pump.

Thanks for this review. I had my eyes on this case for a new mini ITX box, but now have one doubt: will the new Corsair H105 AIO liquid cooler fit this case on the side with its 38mm thick radiator?

excellent review and a great case

I love being able to build small form factor High End PC's and still be able to overclock.

definitely will be my next build im getting over my massive HAF-X case I don't use the real-estate in it.

If your a single gpu kind of person then this small form factors are the way to go. and hopefully you don't need more then 16G of memory
