- Very compact, yet supports mini-ITX through full ATX motherboards.
- Near perfect air (or water) cooling design with unobstructed, filtered air intake and output
- Supports 2 x 140mm front intake fans (Those who say not haven't fully removed the front panel)
- Supports 4 additional 120mm fans (1 bottom, 1 back, and 2 top)
- Bottom-mounted PSU with isolated air path
- 2x 5 1/4" front bays, USB 3.0, front + back panels, thumb screws for panels and slots
- CPU access on back of motherboard panel.
- Not all filters are easy to remove for cleaning (and no filter on back 120mm fan).
- Requires significant disassembly to install dual 140mm fans in front.
- Thin metal, sufficient but somewhat flimsy.
- Protruding side panels negate much of the compactness, though it is still compact.
In short, I'm very happy with this for $51 including shipping. I would be happier to pay $80 for a deluxe version that mitigated or resolved the cons I listed above. But no such case exists in the world right now. So this is as good as it gets for a very compact option at this time.
Great looking, clear design, glass window looks great. It is even better looking than pictures, not like most cases with pictures looks great while real thing looks just so so.
Great size, compact, but big enough to hold full size graphics card and full size CPU cooler. I see no reason to go bigger case.
Light weight (8lb) for its size.
Steel plate not thick enough, kind of worrying when screwing in parts since the case was tweaked when I just tried a little more force.
A few sharp edges.
Some obviously cheap looking parts (the front panel wires).
I believe that going one size up on the grommets would correct this problem. Or, even better, use grommets that are slightly longer so that when the thumbscrews are tightened, it causes the grommets to expand and hold the glass securely.
The only other minor complaint I have is that the power button is pretty loose and feels like it may fall out one day.
1. This front of this case is plastic, unlike the Temjin, which is aluminum. This reduces cost.
2. This case has two 120mm fans up front, instead of a single huge 180mm fan.
3. This case has no 3.5" bay on the bottom of the front for a memory card reader like the Temjin.
4. Front dust filter access is different on this case. You open a door on the front to reveal a large, removal air filter. The Temjin case front air filter you push out from either side of the front of the case. More of a pain than this case.
Everything else about this case is identical to the Temjin model. The structure is exactly the same, and uses the same parts as the Temjin. Since it is the same, the internal layout and build process is the same. You get the nice magnetic air filter where the power supply mounts for easy cleaning. Silverstone thought this case out a lot, trying to make it small, but with excellent build quality. There are cons to this case, just like the Temjin since it is virtually the same. I will list them below.
1. The screws that hold the top panel on, and the motherboard tray, along with the hard drive cage and pedestal are proprietary, very small screws. I strongly recommend you use a magnetic screwdriver. You can't just go to the hardware store replace them. I can't figure out why Silverstone decided to do this. I never lost any screws, but just be warned. This also applies to the Temjin model.
2. It might be disconcerting for some how the layout of the case is. The motherboard is installed upside down.
3. Serviceability - You have to remove the top to install or replace the power supply, not to mention the optical drives. Also, the only SSD mount in this or the Tejmin is on the bottom of the case, where the pedestal and hard drive cage are. These are sacrifices that you make for such a small tower.
ON THE FENCE ABOUT:
The motherboard tray is removable, which is really nice. You really need this though anyway, given how small the case is, and the space you have to work with. Putting the motherboard tray back in, I had to tweak and jockey into the position to get it just right. It was a bit of a struggle to get it to align with the motherboard I/O shield properly. So just keep that in mind, since you could possibly run into that.
1. Excellent airflow just like the Temjin. The fans included are very high quality, and the system is about near silent in my opinion.
2. Excellent quality material used. Even the plastic front panel felt solid enough, and looks nice.
3. Excellent cable management/room for cables. I will stress that you need to take your time and do proper cable management. Not really a con, and you should enjoy and take your time building your computer anyway.
4. The front panel USB 3.0 ports, power and reset buttons ooze quality. They feel very solid. The power and reset buttons have a very satisfying click. They are not cheap like so many cases. The USB ports and headphone/mic jacks feel very sturdy and not like they will break when you plug things into them over the years.
5. Like the Tejmjin, the optical drive bay covers are very easy to remove or re-install. Kudos to Silverstone.
I would keep in mind, and Silverstone tells you in the excellent documentation they provide that the optical drive and power supply configuration has limits. You only have so much space between the two when installing them. I installed an EVGA 430 watt power supply in here, which fit fine. However, since it wasn't modular, I had to bundle the unused cables in some of the space they provide for cables in the case. I would recommend you use a modular power supply. Silverstone has a specific recommendation for one of their models when building in this or the Temjin. Any modular or semi-modular power supply will work fine though.
In conclusion, I think Silverstone has hit many marks here, and some not so great marks. But this is a high quality mini tower, and head and shoulders above most others out there.
