By Neoprimal on August 14, 2013
I acquired the situation since i had some PC parts I needed to re-purpose into an HTPC upgrade and was fed up with the chunky/desktop sized HTPC cases available. I additionally did not want anything small. Since I Have desired to re-purpose my parts, I'd very specific needs. I desired a situation which was Slim form factor, in a position to fit micro atx boards and in a position to fit bigger PSUs. I additionally wanted something which looked great. I do not like them searching too plain and I do not like them searching gaudy. This situation was ideal for me in each and every way.
It is simply an exciting-around great situation. It's among the best ones to check out that I have worked with shortly. it's solid and nothing feels excessively flimsy or shaky. Because you get a lot frame space, there is a bar to carry the frame therefore it does not become warped or bent whenever you fill it together with your parts.
The situation is 105mm all the way through and 140mm of comfortable PSU room which means you must plan accordingly. Things get cramped fast.
Listed here are a couple of tidbits of recommendation for the build experience.
- You need to take away the frame bar and the nylon/rubber drive cage before you decide to inflict operate in the situation. This is incorporated in the instructions, that we recommend studying.
- You've 140mm of PSU room before you decide to stop a few of the 2.5" drive bay on the ground near the PSU bay. any more and you will also likely hinder what you can do to set up anything but 2.5" drives within the 5.25" bay (you may will not have the ability to install anything more).
- At 105mm head to feet, make certain you receive the best CPU fan. Based on your build you might not need anything too large or effective. Used to do, as my build is a re-purposing of my recently redundant system (Q6600, 8GB RAM, 750w Modular PSU, 3 1TB HD). Read more › Comment Was this review useful for you?

Some notes on my small particular experience and a few observations:
- The weak magnetic latch around the door: I wondered relating to this myself--why this type of nice, well-built situation were built with a magnet with your a light pull onto it. in the end, the door is pretty solid (and it has a pleasant brushed finish, BTW). I Then recognized it had been intentional after i accidentally ejected the DVD-ROM drive and, not getting 'locked' the leading, there is enough push in the tray to really open the otherwise heavy door with no tray instantly retracting. Although it might be preferred for that user to first swing the leading lower before popping the tray, somebody at Silverstone was really considering this, so kudos for them.
- USB 3.front ports: Glad they're there. Because they are true 3., they terminate inside a 20-pin female connector. That's good, but not so good news in case your mobo does not come with an onboard 3.header. Initially I would give a card using the connector, but my mobo has 2 USB 3.'A' connectors within the I/O block. Because the USB 3.0 is handled by the Intel chipset (and is not NEC Renesas, that we hate), I understood these were totally reliable. I simply need to have that 20-pin connector to 'A' connectors. There is a knockout at the back of the situation for any DB-9/15 connector, so I intend to use that (or perhaps a slot cover) along with an adapter cable. If you want to perform the same, look for "2 Ports USB 3.A Kind Male to Motherboard 20 Pin Header Male Cable."
- DVD-ROM drive mounting: Even though the mounting holes for that drive are correctly placed, they are not oblong/elongated, which may provide some minor room for modifying the positioning of the drive.

By JN on August 19, 2014 Awesome, just what i needed in my HTPC - it appears great, have no idea why many instances are extremely damn ugly.
Thinking about the dimensions, you receive a large amount of hardware options. cable management wasn't a problem for me personally, but on the other hand, i am not while using optical bay, and so i had some spare room to put the additional. and it appears great. there's a magnet to help keep the lid up if you won't want to make use of the key.
for that PSU, i used the "Silverstone Tek 450-Watts SFX Form Factor Full Modular Power Supply"
i'm on integrated graphics (i5 4690k) - could not look for a GPU which i could guarantee would fit. but integrated is working acceptable for me, so perhaps i'll let it rest at this.

By Scott on December 14, 2013
I decided this situation after studying a variety of reviews from it and similar cases. It's reasonably sturdy, had enough room that i can shoehorn in any components I needed, and looks good within the stack of watching movies components where it lives now. The skinny manual that included it covered everything I desired to understand, even though the arrangement of a few of the material appeared just a little unintuitive.
Lots of people have commented around the brightness from the blue power Brought, but I discovered it had been simple to adjust using the slider. Ironically, the glow of the red HDD activity light is probably more visible (even if your door is closed) because it shines lower to the component below, but I discovered it nice to determine what the drive was doing and personally, it does not annoy me.
Not surprisingly, the situation was pretty cramped. I required Silverstone's advice and used their modular SFX power, which helped a great deal with space, and I did not have to install any expansion or display cards. I were able to mount a dual 2.5" SATA hotswap component (3.5" Form Factor, inside a 5.25" adapter) in to the optical media space with no problems.
Another mind-scratcher was mounting from the situation fans to the side of the situation -- there's allegedly room for 4, although I only used 2. There aren't any purposed mounting holes whatsoever, only a continuous honeycomb pattern that extends the whole side from the situation, and there wasn't any method to align the fans so that they matched holes whatsoever four corners concurrently. Fortunately, mine came with rubber mounting grommets (rather of screws) that flexed sufficiently to support the offsets. Read more › Comment Was this review useful for you?
