Overall, this case is perfect for the HTPC I built. I fit an SSD, Bluray drive, an mITX board and even managed to squeeze in an aftermarket heatsink (though the fan had to be placed in a pretty bad spot). Unfortunately the cables for the PSU are hard to manage, and with my current setup running Prime95, my i3 cpu quickly rises to +70C which isn't too nice to see - though not completely unexpected.
Don't expect to have much space to work with, that's really all that can be said.
Apparently this case came out a few years ago and was not getting much attention. Comparing the case I got from NCIX with previously published reviews on the internet I noticed a couple of changes which makes it even better.
The biggest, and I think the most important, difference is the addition of venting holes on the left side of the case. Before there are venting holes on the right side only, with the added venting holes on the left I was able to add two 120mm case fans to improve cooling, with left side blowing in and right side blowing out. For this small case any kind of cooling improvement is most welcomed.
All in all, made a great HTPC case. Has a good amount of room inside to mount a couple more drives, and maybe an additional fan. PSU fan isn't silent, but i would not go so far as to call it noisy either.
I got this case 6 months ago, and was very pleased with it, so I decided to buy it again. In addition to the generally appealing look, this case can take pretty much everything you'll throw into a low end system: DVD, hard drive, floppy. Even comes with a 250W PSU.
