What are you worrying about? Maybe about quality? Usually, cheaper case equates to lower quality. I don't have experience with this one though.

Cons of having a tiny mini-itx case:
-cable management is horrible
-more expensive motherboard
-can't easily upgrade parts (graphics card, more HDDs, power supply constraints)
-cooling is not as easy as larger cases
-hard to go water cooling solution

But for a HTPC, a Pentium or Core-i3 and a SSD+HDD should work well with minimal noise, heat output, power usage.

Well I figure maybe a barebones setup will get on sale again like in the past. I don't think I would get an actual GPU because I hear for HTPC, an integrated graphics CPU will do the trick.

Another big focus is temperature from what I've researched so a low energy CPU and PSU to keep the case more quiet with the fans.

I was just wondering people's experiences doing the above with this case.

I am using this case as HTPC and I am very happy with it. Here is my config: AMD E5350, Asrock AM1H-ITX, 8GB ram, 120Gb SSD + 1T HDD, Corsair CX430M PSU, Windows 7pro.

I have been using this htpc to watch Bluray / high bitrate Mkv videos, streaming youtube 1080, hulu plus, decoding FLAC / WAV music files etc.... flawlessly.

The case is small enough to put in the living room, runs super cool & quite.

I have this case and it's great. It CAN fit a full sized video card without trouble if you plan to use it for games. If you really pack the case with a video card and multiple hard drives, I recommend getting a short PSU cable set like the one below. You'll obviously need a modular PSU for that.

I'm stuck between the two myself. It depends on what you want. The BitFenix seems like it would have better airflow while the CoolerMaster has a smaller footprint.

I'm partial to the CoolerMaster because for the amount of space the BitFenix takes, I might as well build a full ATX machine. The CoolerMaster fits nicely in my TV stand.

Repped.

EDIT: Nevermind, pulled the trigger. Who am I kidding, it's a $25 case. Worst case scenario I have a pretty shoe-box.
