The 3.5” hard drive is mounted with tool-less thumb screws with shock-absorption rubber ring, to reduce the noise. The PC-Q07 has a passive cooling design, due to less heat from the Mini-ITX system. There are vent holes at the bottom part of the side panels and chassis, this allows air to enter to cool the system down. There are also some vent holes next the rear I/O slots, designed for CPU cooling. There is also room for a CPU cooler with a height of 70mm. The power supply unit can be turned 180 degrees. When the user has an ATX PS/2 power supply with 120mm cooling fan, the fan can be placed facing the motherboard. Alternatively if there is a CPU cooler with fan on board the user can turn the power supply and have the fan facing outwards.
The motherboard is mounted on the right-hand-side side panel. This makes installation of the motherboard very easy. The panel can be removed and there is no need to work inside the case. The power supply unit is mounted with a mounting plate, the user slides the power supply into the case through the rear opening after the cables have been connected.

J'ai acheté ce petit boitier pour utiliser le moins d'espace possible sur mon bureau tout en ayant la possibilité d'installer un bloc d'alimentation standard ATX et un graveur DVD/Bluray pleine grandeur. Pour avoir plus de facilité de travailler à l'intérieur, j'ai acheté un bloc d'alimentation miniature FSP FSP300-60GHS-R 300W qui vient avec un adaptateur ATX. L'utilisation de ce boitier est limité à l'utilisation HTPC ou a faire des applications de multimedia et de bureautique. Je donne 4 étoiles pour utilisation HTPC.
Very nice looking, all metal case that can use full size ATX PSU's and optical drives but there are few downsides. The side panels are held together by 6 tiny screws with very little threading. The motherboard mounts are 2mm too high which means it takes some effort to push it through the back plate because it's misaligned. Also, if you install a 3.5" HDD into the bracket at the bottom of the case, you can't install a video card because it will hit the cooler, unless the gpu has a small heat sink. It is very cramped inside and if you don't have a modular PSU, there will be wires everywhere which will obstruct air flow.
I like small cases. In fact, I really like small cases. I've sold a few and I own a few, and generally I think they're the cat's meow. This case, however, I'm afraid is just not good design and I'll tell you why.
