One of the best deals, glad I bought this.

I moved the PC from the old building to the new one in 3 hours, it was very interesting and informative But it's really big, I would say huge. In the photo is standing next to a 27 "monitor

  • Iron quality Contents of delivery Appearance Lots of build options PSU location and installation Rubber gaskets in HDD trays and in PSU mounts Ease of assembly The instruction is not very convenient, but there is 2022, so it will do It's Lego for adults, huh
  • Strange decision in the location of mounts for ssd / 2.5 drives Pulling SATA from ssd to motherboard is weird fun, ruins visual style Keep in mind

I can't stop being happy with the purchase, a very good deal!

I did a compact mini-ITX gaming embly in Core V1 with i3 6300 and GTX 1060 3GB at the end of 2022, the video card was , and the processor cooler was compact, designed to drain 100W. I decided to upgrade and the case was no longer enough for a new video card and a tower cooler for a more powerful processor. The V21 solved the problem, although now the collection is less compact.

  • - Horizontal layout of the motherboard. But you can turn it over if you wish, the case is free to rotate, even the logo is magnetic especially for this. - Very spacious, it will fit any size video card and tower cooler. There is an option for connecting two such cases (but it's not very clear why). - It blows well. - Still quite compact.
  • - Trays under 3.5 are poor, made of plastic (in Core V1, for example, normal metal ones). - Transparent window made of plastic, not gl.

Great option, I recommend. Some pros: Excellent case, made in the form of a "cube", very convenient for quick replacement of iron, all covers are interchangeable. Got cons: The fan on the front draws dust well, in a few weeks the gasket on the front can become clogged, which will spoil the appearance a little. Solved by vacuuming or blowing.

Product satisfying the quality of the product, good price.

With its pros: the ability to put a 140mm valve on blowing, anthers on magnets. the ability to put a 280mm radiator (if you want from the side, you want from the top). Has some cons: in comparison with the core v1 version, it is huge, for some fig under the matx board. the assembly with Micro-ITX looks so-so. I'm upset, but as they say, the fool himself hurried with the purchase without checking the trite dimensions.

A really necessary purchase, Im glad I found this product.

3 slots for 3.5 HDD, 3 slots for 2.5 HDD. Interchangeability of all covers, including the bottom with legs. There are no 3.5 and 5.25 bays - this is a plus for me. USB 3.0 on the side panel. A large "basement" under the motherboard, all the extra PSU wires were hidden.

Good product for me, no problems at all.

Providing an objective assessment.Has some pros: Convenient from any side there is an opportunity to climb Got cons: 200mm cooler doesn't blow very well Put in its place 140mm two

My impression of the purchase is good, buy it.

In general, the model is good. I am satisfied with the purchase, although I expected more, but even for a pedant, finishing up to the ideal will not be a big deal. Has pros: 1) Beautiful appearance 2) Convenient arrangement of elements inside Some cons: 1) The badge is on a too weak magnet, and I don't like the logo itself. It would be better if the front panel was solid, without a recess for it. 2) Accuracy of body parts at 3+ 3) The front cooler is quite noisy (according to reviews, I…

Just super, the product is made wonderfully, very satisfied.

I thought it would be smaller, but it did not affect further impressions. There is enough space in the case for a Boeing and a bag of nuts. There are really 4 places for 2.5 drives, but the 4th tray is apparently clamped. The 3.5 screw basket is great, although some people don't like that there are screwless trays. Some pros: 1. The organization of the interior space is just great 2. Basket for 3.5 hards 3. Workmanship 4. Removable washable filters Different cons: 1. Whoever called it…

Great quality, did not expect at all for the price.

I bought it almost immediately, as it went on sale in 2022, during this time it had a couple of different ssd and hdd, several processors, a couple of CPU coolers, several sets of RAM and just countless video cards from simple ones like GTX660-960 to hot tops like GTX470-480 and HD7970, so even they had a great life and they didn’t really heat up the rest of the components, since ssd, hdd and the power supply are in the lower compartment and they are almost not affected by hot streams from the…

  • 1) everything fits (CPU cooler - TR TS140 Power 175mm, FB cooler - AC Accelero Extreme 320mm) 2) good air circulation, very comfortable temperatures inside 3) dust filters help to rarely clean the insides 4) if you put the video card not in the PCI-E closest to the CPU, but lower (who has motherboards with full-fledged lower PCI-E x8 / x16), then the video card fans will in cool room air directly through the wall with a grid
  • Rather than disadvantages, but features of operation: 1) I strongly recommend putting the left wall (next to the video card) with a grid so that the video card has access to room air 2) all the noise that is in it freely spreads around the room, so the case is suitable only for down-and-out silent freaks or those who sit in headphones and don’t care, therefore, to be quiet, you need: - 120mm fans use up to 800rpm - 140mm fans use up to 600rpm - do not use 3.5" hdd at all, replace with the quietest 2.5" hdd + ssd - select a non-hot (respectively quiet) video card or install a good alternative cooling 3) dust filters should also be vacuumed 1-2 times a week with a nozzle with a long nap, otherwise the inside of the case will still get dusty 4) a complete 200mm fan cannot be silent at stock 800 rpm (reobas, resistor, pwm on the motherboard to help), it starts normally from 400 rpm and at this speed it is really silent or almost inaudible 5) bright LEDs that annoy someone here can (suddenly, who would have thought) not connected to the motherboard, I never connected them 6) clean the wall with the window from dust with something soft (I covered the entire window with small scratches with a vacuum cleaner without a nozzle)

A cool cube, for small systems or systems on the whole circuit its the very thing. In terms of size, it is, of course, decently larger than v1, but hence there are more opportunities. A 330mm long card easily climbed in, until the whole system was in the air, there was a CM Hyper T4 tower on the CPU, it also got up without any problems, but I had to remove the top covers a la "radiators" on the operative, there were no problems with temperatures, that's all within the normal range. On the…

  • Enough space in this form factor to fit large cards, possibly even large towers Modularity - rearrange the covers as you want, hence the various installation options for turntables and radiators He, sorry for being rude, is completely full of holes, there should be no problems with blowing cube)
  • Cable management, but this is more likely not a disadvantage, but a necessity. In such a form factor, it is hardly possible to come up with something sane, except to close the lower part of the case under the power supply cables

Reliable purchase, guaranteed to be a good purchase.

Firstly: The body is large. I put it on the table (it doesn’t fit on the shelf under the table, because it’s 1.5 the width of a typical tower) and it became a bit cramped. So I highly recommend taking measurements seven times before deciding to buy it. And also take into account the fact that this is a "cube" - not everyone will like it. Secondly: Everything that I described above - for the "default" location of the motherboard - horizontal. Since in cross section the body is a square, and…

  • 1) Lots of space inside. You can not really think about the size of the video card and CPU cooler. Drafts, again, have a place to walk 2) Front pre-installed 20cm fan 3) Panel with buttons (Power, Reset), indicators (Power, HDD), audio jacks and USB ports can be placed on the left, top or right - to choose from 4) The front, top and right walls are fully perforated to improve air circulation. On the bottom wall there is a perforation for the PSU and closer to the front of the case (this implies the installation of two 12cm fans) 5) There are dust filters: in front under the perforation (the filter itself is non-removable, but you can remove the front panel), on the top and on the right - removable filters with magnets, under the PSU - a small removable filter with latches 6) In the left wall, almost in full size - a window 7) Under mat. board is a basket of 3 HDD. 3.5" HDDs are mounted without screws. You can install 2.5-inch drives, but they will have to be screwed 8) On the right side there are three "slots" for the SSD. All of them are removable. SSDs are installed without screws 9) Complete set: instructions, bolts, cogs, couplers, washers and two pairs of straps for installing case fans (each pair of straps can be hung 2x12cm or 2x14cm)
  • 1) PSU mount is weird. On the one hand, it (BP) is bolted to the rear wall, and on the other, it is, as it were, supported by a corner. I have this corner in its place and did not get up. After several attempts, I threw out the corner, because. The PSU practically lies on the bottom wall, and it is securely screwed to the back wall - it will not go anywhere :) 2) Anti-dust filters are not everywhere where they should be. There is a rather large perforated area for fans on the bottom wall, but there is no filter there, although there is a filter for the PSU nearby - strange. As far as I know, fans are blown from below - it is doubly strange that there is no filter. On the rear wall, above the I/O panel, there is a place to install one 12cm or 14cm fan - also without a filter. Although here it usually works for blowing, so the filter may not be needed 3) The paint on the PCI-E plugs doesn't stick very well. Once screwed-unscrewed the plug and the paint peeled off under the bolt 4) SSD "slots" are problematic to install in their place if you first insert disks into them 5) The pre-installed 20cm fan is noisy (tried to turn it off: + 3-4 degrees on the processor)

The best I ever used, recommend it to everybody.

Very good case, I liked it. Spacious, all surfaces are well treated. It is a pity that there is no modification with a perforated wall instead of a window. It is not clear why they did not make a seat for fans next to the basket for hard drives: 92mm fits there in size. Skolhozil himself, put 92mm at low speeds right in front of the basket, directed the flow towards the basket. Screws above 32 degrees have not yet heated up.

  • Modular, can be customized. Good processing quality. Sufficient thickness of the frame. Oversized accessories come in. Good ventilation. Easy assembly.
  • Transparent window - plastic, easy to scratch. I would like to add another perforated wall. No filter for bottom fans. Filters are weak. It would be nice to have two more guides for fans. There is no mount to put the fan on the hard drive blower.

Found a long red hair. Front 200mm cooler connector on 3pin (you can also plug it into a 4pin connector, but without speed control). The power indicator is said to be very bright. Wouldn't say With its pros: - the panel with the power button can be rearranged to the other side - capacious (up to 3 ssd, cooler up to 180 mm high) - the ability to install a large amount of additional cooling - magnetic wall filters Has some cons: - the size of a microwave - disgusting instructions - an…

Great body overall. The only thing that spoils the impression is cables that have nowhere to put away, and difficulties with the selection of motherboards. For myself, I left the orientation of the case as it was originally, but moved the IO and the POWER button to the opposite corner of the case. Different pros: Plenty of space inside, rather large coolant radiators are installed, it is well customizable, a large 200 mm fan for blowing, removable dust filters on all openings Has cons…

The best thing I've ever used, a great item for everyone!

I collected everything neatly, probably in an hour, the case disposes to this. I bought a bedside table separately for it, put it next to the main workplace, just beautiful case is not very small Some pros: high quality, made of normal steel and therefore a very quiet case, always cold, convenient location of all PC components, pleasant to assemble, the ability to install more fans when loading the fan at nominal (1000 -1100rpm) the sound is within 26db and it's just fine. there are also…

The goods are normal, money is not wasted!

Has some pros: The case is beautiful and stylish, in terms of functionality the young man is satisfied with it. Blue color LED. Its cons: Wildly collects dust, after 2 weeks of use on the grid a circle of dust :( Mega bright LED

Nice case with an unusual design and different features. I didn't intend to do modding, but I already added a 140mm fan in the back to blow out hot air from the processor, I put the backlight in the main cooler on the front panel - there were just holes for 4 LEDs. To be honest, the body could be more compact. In my case, with a micro-ATX board, two HDDs and a not very large video card (1060GTX), there is still a lot of room left. Been working in this building for 4 years now. All OK.

  • • Build quality and materials (it's nice to assemble the system in such a body) • Four covers are completely removable • Front folds down for access to the main fan • 200mm fan included • On the frame of this fan there are sockets for 4 LEDs (inserted blue ones) • A set of sleds for hard drives 3x3.5 and 3x2.5 • Dust filters on sides with magnets • Dust filter on the suction of the power supply • Ease of opening (all with quick release screws) • One of the walls is made of plex • Possibility of mounting on any side • Two mounting options for the motherboard • Possibility of installation of water cooling • Great capacity • Proper arrangement of parts (power supply at the bottom - lowers the center of mass) • All bolts and screws included
  • • Body is really big (larger than expected) • Due to the fact that two walls are open to sound - the body is quite noisy • USB 3.0 only • There is no dust screen on the floor wall, although ideally air should not be drawn in there • Too few cable ties included for cable routing • The bar for fixing the power supply did not fit . I left it on 4 bolts • Restriction in terms of choice of motherboard - ATX will no longer fit.
