Basically a mATX case with ATX board support. Very small, difficult to fit an ATX power supply and vid card together, and extremely poor thermal performance according to the Gamers Nexus review.

It is a good price and an unusual combination of features though. If you have an ATX board, a small form factor PSU, and use liquid cooling for everything (or aren't a gamer) but want the smallest case possible this case is a good fit. Hard to recommend it for most people though.

Personal experience: I really liked it for the office system I built. You'll want to do something about extracting got air with pressure optimized fans to keep things cool unless you're using a blower GPU. You won't need to add fans if you're building an office or htpc system with this case.

It's not a high end case by any means but the magnetic air filters are really cool and practical IMO. If I were to build with this system for a gaming system with all air cooled components and an axial fan GPU, I'd add 2-3 Arctic p12 fans at the front. Lots of modern GPUs really don't put out a ton of heat, but I've got a 390x sooo...

horrible case, terrible airflow, it's literally an oven, look at any review of this case, it will be fine for a simple office build, but other than that, avoid

I used this for a media server build. Works perfect. No GPU in the case so no issues with thermal's.

Those side front panel ports are going to be love em or hate em. I suspect the vast majority are going to hate em.

I've also got this case. I'm not running a super hot build (R5-2600 & GTX970), but I've had no issues with thermals and it was quite nice to build in. Great value case.

I built it for second gaming computer. Airflow is fine even though I put ATX board. Just you need to add some good fans. It looks fine and good case.

I do not agree with you. Do you have this case? I put my ATX board and add two 120mm fans on the top and one on the front. Power supply is on the front top. I use zotac gtx1060 3g mini. It is good air flow. I am pretty sure you never used it.

The case is a hot box despite its design. See Gamers Nexus's review of the case and their hilarious attempt to "improve" the design.

Its a very uniquely designed case, super flexible. But feels very cheap and flimsy as it is priced appropriatly.

I saw their video but he didn't test my setup. Two side fans and one front fan. He did one front, one top or two side fans. I don't know why. Major difference btw mine and his Graphic card, cpu cooler and one more fan. I build many computers and think this is a good case. Even I purchased it at $60.
