It's almost like i'd be looking at my Lian Li PC-V354. Just with no front intake fans and slightly different PSU placement (rotation). Looks ok though, but i'm a bit unsure about HDD's being placed vertically. I still think bearings work the best if it's placed horizontally.

meh... just a box with some edging... :rolleyes:

though I like the idea of placing the HDD/SSD on the back of the motherboard tray... That is an area that is practically lost, so reusing it like that I welcome...
I know, it is limiting the height of the CPU cooler, but that is easy solvable by making the case wider with 10-15 mm; it will not change the looks dramatically (it is cube anyway) but will allow more standard sized CPU coolers (~160 mm)

I seem to remember a Cubitek review where the build quality was atrocious...Anyone else?

Cubitek has some insanely good products, but their price....I am pretty sure I will never buy one of their works :)

Nice mini-ITX layout. I've dreamt up layouts for mini ITX that are very similar...the bottom front intake fan is key to getting this size case to fit gear with lots of clearance. In mine I would mount the HDD vertically in the front of the case - that gives them some airflow and would also allow for a taller cooler. Mine would have an optical drive though, I still rip optical media, mainly music, rather than buy mp3's (yuck).

This case is almost exactly golden ratio W:H :)

True, but one could always go with an all-in-one water cooler mounted on the 120mm intake. There are also plenty of coolers <150mm that are very good performers even if not the absolute top which are good enough for solid but not extreme overclocks. A more important improvement imo would be to change the rear fan to 120mm, no idea why they went with 90mm.

The other improvement would be a sexy silver version :)

I like this case... Not only this and other their case...
But this rear mash is funny...
That need to cut but leave holes for 120mm fan and some grill because like this it's barier for 50% of AIR.
