Expert Review

This is a very good looking case with a number of innovative features and a price that won't break the bank. The front panel is devoid of slots or features with USB and audio ports and recessed air exhaust slots running down each side. An exposed 5.25 inch bay that accepts only slot loading slim optical drives can be found on the top of the case.

Cooling is handled by accommodations for an 80 millimeter fan in the front, one 90 millimeter fan in the rear, two 120 millimeter fans in the top, a 120 millimeter fan in the side and another in the bottom. It can also accept 240 millimeter radiators in the side although it may only have one fan. So, cooling options are good but not top-of-class.

This case can accept top-end GPU's up to 350 millimeters long and has two expansion slots. Drive options include mounts for one 3.5 inch drive and four 2.5 inch drives internally in addition to the slim optical drive. The result is a competent and inexpensive case well suited for a budget Mini-ITX build.Rating: 4/5
