    Thanks for the review. Looks kinda noisy from the pictures. Any chance you test noise output sometimes later?

    How large of a CPU cooler can you install? I might be making my GF a shoebox rig!

    That's one of the most anticipated cases for me. Not all people can afford Silverstone's cases for MiniITX builds. For 45 euros or so it's as good as it gets. Can't really complain about anything. The prodigy comes at about 70, so....yeah. That's why I love CM, just enough to get the job done without too much fuzz.

    Put a handle on it and it would look better and be functional too.

    Easily done. :) The case is only 50 bucks so one wouldn't feel very guilty drilling some holes in the top for a handle.

    I am loving this case. It would look so cool to have a handle mounted on top.

    65mm MAX!! You can easily put a Big Shuriken 2 in there; however, the stock fan is freaken LOUD!!!!! I have two stock fans in there and I really can't stand it but that's what you pay for when you want a small rig.

    Would like to see thermals, especially with that particular PSU installed, since it doesn't appear to have a bottom-mounted fan which would help the airflow.

    Assuming you can get ahold of a solid piece of the chassis, otherwise you would more than likely pull the siding on the top off.

    Was thinking about this for a friend's build. Now since he wants me to build one for him, this ought to be perfect

    How about adding a Liquid Cooling system? One of those all-in-one systems from Corsair or Antec? Im building my mom a new rig with an i5-3570K in it and so far have selected the H60 with the Bitfenix Prodigy and a 450W PSU. Would I be able to do that with this case w/o modding it to save my mum sum cash?
