Customer Reviews

Good choice but could be improved.nice profile and well thought out. access is good. cooling is an issue. as a home pc builder i wish for the following:- quick release external assembly things on the side covers instead of screws.- an extra fan that would fit in one of the hard drive bays. or a custom exhaust fan on the top surface.- complete sidecover cut-outs under the external dust filter panels instead of the grill lattice.- the little stabilizer feet don't lock together well. the case is narrow when upright and tippy without them.- the GPU is poorly supported. they provide a little clip but it doesn't work.4One Amazing Case For The Discerning BuilderThis review is for the model RVZ02B-W, which I bought right here on Amazon.I've always liked Silverstone cases for their quality and innovation, and this case does not disappoint. I have owned Fortress FT03 & FT03-Mini as well as the first RVZ01. This case is my favorite by far because it ended up offering the best balance between size, power, cooling, and noise; so much so I decided to write a review for it so others can also benefit from my experience. Did I mention it also looks 100 times cooler in person?My PC:Silverstone RVZ02B-WGigabyte Z170N ITX Motherboardi5-6500 CPUNoctua Low Profile Cooler NH-L9I (With Cooler Master Blade 92 PWM Fan)8GB DDR4 RAM (Geil Super Luce, Glows Red, Newegg)Asus GTX970 Mini (Upgrading Soon To GTX1070)Corsair SF600 SFX PSU1TB Samsung 850 EVO SSD (OS)2TB WD 7200 RPM 2.5'' HDD (Data)Samsung Slim Optical Drive SN-208FB/BEBEWindows 10Important note: My ITX builds in the past always got scrapped because of one thing: the noise. So this build was successful thankfully for the newly released Corsair SF600 SFX PSU. In the past I have used Silverstone's (and other brand's) SFX PSUs but they were always so noisy (I have not tried the SFX-L version). Personally I prefer my PC to be nearly dead silent when on idle, and this PSU delivered as promised: no coil whining, no noise, period. Without this PSU I think I would have ended up skipping this case as well. Also, I dislike liquid cooling because of the pump noises (yes that bothers me) so instead I went for the highly praised Noctua low profile cooler but opted to change the included fan for a thicker, black colored alternative from Cooler Master, which fitted just fine in this case and still left about half inch of clearing from the side panel.I built this PC for 1080P, 60fps gaming and I wanted it to be quiet when I'm not gaming. Mission accomplished.The case itself consists of metal & plastic and feels solid when handling. I won't get into the specifications and details since there are many websites who've already done a wonderful job of it. What I will say is this case allowed me to cram so many powerful components into it without being too much larger than a Xbox One. Also, the Noctua heatsink with the Cooler Master 92mm pwm fan combo kept my i5-6500 at a nice 30C idle and 55C load. On the reverse side, my Asus GTX970 Mini stayed around 28C idle and 60C-75C load, depending on the game (averages 70C for Fallout 4 @1080P with Ultra settings). This is in a room with temperature of about 70F. A few minutes into gaming the CPU, GPU, and PSU fans all kick in with a moderate (but very bearable) noise level and can very easily be ignored/covered up by game sounds. Overall I'd say the noise was no louder than my old first generation Asus G750 17'' laptop during load.Appearance wise, the windows in the photos are whiter than they appear in real life. So if your room isn't lit by bright florescent bulbs, chances are the case windows will look much more transparent in person. The windows also sit flush with the side panel, which was another reason I chose this version over the standard all black version. The orange triangle LED gives the slim case some character when viewed head on; and my Gigabyte motherboard had onboard audio panel LEDs (red), which gave the left side window (ironically) some modest glow while my right side window was decorated by the slow-pulsing LEDs (also red) from aforementioned RAM. So in a low light environment (as any respectable gamer would have) the completed build looks like a living, breathing (thanks to the RAM) sophisticated gaming machine.The build itself: EASY. Much, much more so than all my other ITX builds (including Cougar QBX, Corsair 380T, Azza CSAZ-103, ASRock M8, and Silverstone FT03-Mini) and even easier than many larger desktops thanks to the inverted GPU placement made possible via two GPU PCI adapters (included). Since I used a SFX (as opposed to a SFX-L PSU) there was also extra room next to the PSU for me to neatly bundle the cables.The only area I could offer improvement is to include dust filters since all of the openings on the case are quite large. But then again when I thought about it some more this way also made sense because while the openings made dust easy to get in, it's also easy for them to get out. And opening the case up once half a year or so and going through it with a can of air doesn't seem like that much of a chore since I can kill two birds with one stone and make sure all my components are still in operational condition while I'm at it. Nevertheless, it's been almost 1 month since I've built this and I still don't see any dust buildup inside.And that concludes my 2 cents on this case. The total for my build came out to around $1500, which I thought was reasonable given what it can do. Everybody needs a PC these days anyways, and I figure I'd just go a little further and make the PC powerful enough, small enough, and quiet enough to replace my game counsels with the aid of a Xbox 360 controller. If you consider the size of Xbox One plus the power brick, this case isn't that much larger, yet the games run smoother, quieter, and looks better.100% Recommended.5Dell, eat your heart out !!!!I have always had to buy small form factor computers from dell because they were compact, small and had great cooling for internal parts because of their design. But their maximum power supply is only for 240 watts, which was a no for graphic card that are VR ready. This case solves my problems. Its a little bigger but with a 3 & 1/4 inch thickness. This case can hold large powerful graphics cards, a large 500 watt power supply and intel or amd poweful cpu's. There is a vent in front of the CPU and a vent in front of the Video card, allowing fresh cool air in to the major components that produce the most heat. I really love this case, and anyone who wants to build a compact power pc should use it. Granted, you cannot use 3.5" hard drives in this case, it only accepts 2.5" hard drives, but I have a synology nas that can cater files throughout the house using deluge as a central torrent server with clients on several pc's. I can turn off my pc and keep the low power consumption file server going. Wonderful setup, a great way to save space around your desk and home, just love it all.specs:motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H170N-WIFIram: 32 gigcpu: Intel Boxed Core I7-6700 FC-LGA14C 3.40 GHzcpu cooler: Noctua Low-Profile Quiet CPU Coolervideo card: VisionTek Radeon RX 480 8GBpower supply: SilverStone 500W SFX-L Form FactorHard drives: Samsung 850 - 500GB - M.2 SSD SanDisk Ultra II 960GB 2.5-Inch SSD Seagate HN-M201RAD ST2000LM003 2TB 2.5"5this is the size of a large cereal box and has a lot of great features.

I chose to leave the video card chamber windowless so i could see the beautiful Asus 1080 in there.Pros:Slim, sleek, beautifulInexpensiveLight weightSeparate chamber for video cardCons:PlasticNeed smaller more expensive sfx power suppllyCan't add fansOverall a nice case if you're looking to build in a small form factor, here are pics of my build [...]5Nifty, Clever Case, but Small Flaws Can Make it UnusablePros:- Small form factor; about the size of a VCR player and very mobile- good materials for case- Relatively low cost- designed for passive cooling- full size GPU supportCons:- challenging to build in- poor cable management- small imperfections in machining make it nearly unusable.I want to be clear, this is actually a very clever, neat little case. It should be perfect for a Home Theater PC build, and can fit just about anywhere that you could put a cable box or DVD player. The design is crafty and does a lot with very little space and the 'flat' design gives it a lot of versatility (though it will have much better cooling when standing upright.)However, some of the clever solutions that let this design work, such as the use of riser cards to make the GPU parallel with the motherboard, are also what make the case basically useless if there are just a couple of tiiiny errors during production. My case had two very small problems: the screw holes used to mount the riser card are just about a millimeter off, and the GPU bracket's screw hole came threaded too bare to hold the screws. As a result of these tiny flaws, the GPU can't be mounted with the PCIe Lock without unseating itself, and the GPU support bracket is effectively worthless. Even jostling the case slightly (such as nudging a desk or opening a drawer) causes the GPU to unseat because of these flaws, let alone moving the whole computer, which means I basically need to open the whole thing up every time the machine is bumped even slightly.Short version: A very neat case if you get one that has holes drilled correctly, but the level of precision this design requires does mean even very small flaws can ruin the entire point of a computer this shape/size.2It's a very good case for a console like gaming PCWhen I was thinking about making a new PC for myself I wanted something small and portable, sadly extremely small cases like the Dan case and a few others are just way to overpriced imo, so I went with this case. It's bigger than a PS4 Pro when I put them side by side, I had to buy a new bag however it's worth it being able to bring a desktop when I travel. The Graphics card I have inside of it is the Sapphire RX 480 Nitro, and it still had room left over, this case can pretty much fit many graphics cards of all sizes, well besides the big 3 or 2 1/2 slot cards I can imagine.Building inside of it was really nice, not a bad experience whatsoever, I love the tool less 2.5 drive holders, such a good idea, I haven't used the included space for the DVD drive however I want to add one in the future. The included feet was a nice touch however I personally don't use those, instead I just use the little holders to put it in a vertical position. The only negative thing I can say about the case is the fact that the dust filters don't allow for much airflow, I noticed that my fans ramp up higher with the filters on, however I don't mind that so much so I kept them on.4Versatile, well-made, and well-engineered!One of the smartest airflow designs I've ever seen that also economizes space and allows for ease of travel. The two side vents are located on the top left and bottom right, respectively, of the case, with a riser card for the PCIe slot. What you're left with is the top left vent exposing the CPU and PSU fans, and the bottom right vent open for the GPU. With the new Z170 ITX motherboards out there, you can really max this chassis out!Power: You can fit an SFX-L (lengthened) power supply easily into this chassis. You may want to have extra SATA and Molex cables on hand to run power to each component, as space will be a little limited.Hard Drives: There are two snap-in-place slots for 2.5" hard drives in the main compartment (as the graphics card has its own compartment with separate airflow). There is a cable pass-through (hole) between each compartment that allows you to mount a third hard drive far at the back of the video card compartment as long as you get a reasonably-sized video card. And I believe if you opt out of an ODD, you can mount a fourth one as well (check back with me later, once I verify).Slim Optical Drive: The optical slot is tool-less, which is nice, except the front bezel cover plate doesn't fit well in the case. I could not get the Blu-Ray drive to open using the included ODD cover. It was jammed. I just used a different bezel and it works fine, though not as pretty as I like. I have an ultra-slim (9.5mm) drive in the ODD slot, which now leaves a 3mm gap between the drive and the opening. I find this minorly irritating, since this provides exhaust for the air intakes. Also, get a Syba SATA to Mini SATA Cable with Molex Power Adapter if you plan on using the optical drive. I forgot to grab one originally, but it's necessary for the SilverStone PSU's.Video Card: You can fit any card in here. Seriously the space is huge. My GTX 970 looks tiny in the video slot. There is also a little rubber clamp that supports the back end of your card so that it doesn't bend in the middle. Also, when you open the video card compartment, you get access to the bottom of your motherboard, where the m.2 slot is often found. This also allows for easy installation of the CPU cooler.Airflow: A++!!! I can't tell you how thrilled I am at how silent I can keep this running. Each vent is over fan intakes blowing directly onto your mobo/GPU/CPU/PSU. And each vent is covered by an easily removable/cleanable dust filter!! Way to go, SilverStone!!CPU Cooler Height: This one is tricky. The website says that it can have up to a 58mm cooler, but I was able to fit in a cooler up to 65mm. I have a 95w TDP processor, which can get REALLY hot, so I really couldn't skimp on the cooler. This is what I did, and I recommend it for anyone else who buys this case:Get a DEEPCOOL GABRIEL CPU Cooler and replace the fan with a Noctua 12cm iPPC 2000rpm fan. I've found that this JUST barely fits into this case cleanly. I can now overclock my CPU and keep my RAM and chipset ultra-cool with the oversized fan. I tried all sorts of CPU fans, but the Noctua industrial 2000rpm fan really was the perfect mix of quietude and cooling power. Anything less powerful wouldn't be able to handle my CPU and anything more powerful is too loud.Cons: As I mentioned, the optical drive cover has a poor fit for the case and gets jammed. But that only bugs me because I happen to use an ultra-slim drive. The feet are useless. They fall off any time you move the tower around. The chassis comes with rubber feet for placing it horizontally, but you would not be able to set anything on top, since the vents are really necessary for the airflow. Still, that's really all I can gripe about. I saw pictures of some guy who fit a liquid cooler into the case, but I seriously doubt that's a feasible solution for most consumers with this case. You'd have to do some major rigging to get that to work.Pros: Airflow. Well-engineered for versatility. Great design. SOLID craftsmanship. Great for gaming or home theater use.Here is my rig. I built this with mostly top-of-the-line components as of February, 2016:Motherboard: Gigabyte LGA1151 Intel Z170 Mini-ITX DDR4 MotherboardCPU: Intel Core I7-6700K 4.00 GHz 8M ProcessorCooler: DEEPCOOL GABRIEL CPU Cooler /Noctua 12cm iPPC 2000rpm fan comboPSU: SilverStone 500W SFX-LRAM: Vengeance LPX 32GB DDR4 DRAM 2400MHz C14 MemoryPrimary SS Drive: Samsung 950 PRO-Series 256GB M.2 Internal SSDSecondary SS Drive: Samsung 850 EVO 1 TB 2.5-Inch SSDVideo Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 970 4GB FTW Graphics Card5Really sleek, well designed case, EXCEPT for the (painful) handleI've been using this case for over a year now, and I really love how the case is laid out; the components all fit the case wonderfully and securely, and it can hold a huge video card thanks to the smart top card bay. The finish is pretty nice, though for a case designed to be moderately portable, I wish the paint was a little sturdier, or maybe included a travel cover. I also wish that you didn't have to remove the handle to get into the case, though ideally you wouldn't NEED to get into the case very often after your initial build. My only MAJOR complaint with the case is design of the handle itself - it's physically painful to carry around the case for more than a couple minutes. The bottom/inside of the handle is comprised of sharp plastic fins that dig into your hand immediately when you pick up the case. I have no idea why the top of the handle, which you barely touch, is nice and smooth, while the interior of the handle is brutally serrated. Horrible design oversight, which almost totally negates the utility of having a handle at all.3it is either not snug and does nothing OR it feels like the plastic is getting forcedPROS:-the design and cable management is superb.-fits my big ol radeon 480 red devil. Comes with the adapter that lays card parallel to mother board.CONS:-Can not access power supply switch as it is trapped inside and it uses an extension cord to expose it on a different side of the chassis.-The foot platforms do not snap on or attach at all, the chassis just sits on top of it. And since it just goes over the air filter part that is indented off of case, and depending on the width you set the platforms, it is either not snug and does nothing OR it feels like the plastic is getting forced. Basically that option I don't even feel like considering.OTHER NOTES:-you put the SilverStone logo on yourself. And you have to choose. center the snowflake, or center the text. not both. Center the Snowflake is probably the better option, and I wish I thought about it more before I stuck it on!-Two fully wrapping outer plates were prone to looking like it is on snug, but on later inspection, a flap had missed. Resulted in many re-screwing and a bit of irritation.-No space or holes for any fans at all.-4 longer screws are probably for the handle bar (Doh)-There is a piece to hold your graphics card in place. May not work if your card is too big. I instead used some twist ties through random holes.5I love it (with some modifications)Pros:looks very sharpfits everything well enough (though wire maintenance around the drive holders can be difficult)love the easy to remove filter screensDon't let my extensive con rant below dissuade you from this case. I am really happy with it and I'm glad I chose this one.Con:Pushing the power button will slide the unit before it depresses the button. Did anyone test the resistance? It makes me want to wire a third party power button into it).The PSU I/O button is sealed of inside the case. If I need to unplug the system or do some digging inside I have to remove the side panels. (Solution: I drilled a finger-sized hole in one panel so I could reach inside. I covered the sharp edges with sugru).The side panels are a pain to remove and reattach. There are so many little clasps inside that I tend to miss one or two (so I have to pull it back a little then try to slide it forward again (and again)). I really don't like that they wrap around from one side to the next. Some have noted that its cool that the side panels are interchangeable but I think we lose out on potential design feature improvements (like an PSU switch access point).For some reason, there is no filter screen on the holes at the very top of the case. I'm looking into adding my own.All that said, I love it.4

The design is crafty and does a lot with very little space and the 'flat' design gives it a lot of versatility (though it will have much better cooling when standing upright.)However, some of the clever solutions that let this design work, such as the use of riser cards to make the GPU parallel with the motherboard, are also what make the case basically useless if there are just a couple of tiiiny errors during production. My case had two very small problems: the screw holes used to mount the riser card are just about a millimeter off, and the GPU bracket's screw hole came threaded too bare to hold the screws. As a result of these tiny flaws, the GPU can't be mounted with the PCIe Lock without unseating itself, and the GPU support bracket is effectively worthless. Even jostling the case slightly (such as nudging a desk or opening a drawer) causes the GPU to unseat because of these flaws, let alone moving the whole computer, which means I basically need to open the whole thing up every time the machine is bumped even slightly.Short version: A very neat case if you get one that has holes drilled correctly, but the level of precision this design requires does mean even very small flaws can ruin the entire point of a computer this shape/size.2It's a very good case for a console like gaming PCWhen I was thinking about making a new PC for myself I wanted something small and portable, sadly extremely small cases like the Dan case and a few others are just way to overpriced imo, so I went with this case. It's bigger than a PS4 Pro when I put them side by side, I had to buy a new bag however it's worth it being able to bring a desktop when I travel. The Graphics card I have inside of it is the Sapphire RX 480 Nitro, and it still had room left over, this case can pretty much fit many graphics cards of all sizes, well besides the big 3 or 2 1/2 slot cards I can imagine.Building inside of it was really nice, not a bad experience whatsoever, I love the tool less 2.5 drive holders, such a good idea, I haven't used the included space for the DVD drive however I want to add one in the future. The included feet was a nice touch however I personally don't use those, instead I just use the little holders to put it in a vertical position. The only negative thing I can say about the case is the fact that the dust filters don't allow for much airflow, I noticed that my fans ramp up higher with the filters on, however I don't mind that so much so I kept them on.4Versatile, well-made, and well-engineered!One of the smartest airflow designs I've ever seen that also economizes space and allows for ease of travel. The two side vents are located on the top left and bottom right, respectively, of the case, with a riser card for the PCIe slot. What you're left with is the top left vent exposing the CPU and PSU fans, and the bottom right vent open for the GPU. With the new Z170 ITX motherboards out there, you can really max this chassis out!Power: You can fit an SFX-L (lengthened) power supply easily into this chassis. You may want to have extra SATA and Molex cables on hand to run power to each component, as space will be a little limited.Hard Drives: There are two snap-in-place slots for 2.5" hard drives in the main compartment (as the graphics card has its own compartment with separate airflow). There is a cable pass-through (hole) between each compartment that allows you to mount a third hard drive far at the back of the video card compartment as long as you get a reasonably-sized video card. And I believe if you opt out of an ODD, you can mount a fourth one as well (check back with me later, once I verify).Slim Optical Drive: The optical slot is tool-less, which is nice, except the front bezel cover plate doesn't fit well in the case. I could not get the Blu-Ray drive to open using the included ODD cover. It was jammed. I just used a different bezel and it works fine, though not as pretty as I like. I have an ultra-slim (9.5mm) drive in the ODD slot, which now leaves a 3mm gap between the drive and the opening. I find this minorly irritating, since this provides exhaust for the air intakes. Also, get a Syba SATA to Mini SATA Cable with Molex Power Adapter if you plan on using the optical drive. I forgot to grab one originally, but it's necessary for the SilverStone PSU's.Video Card: You can fit any card in here. Seriously the space is huge. My GTX 970 looks tiny in the video slot. There is also a little rubber clamp that supports the back end of your card so that it doesn't bend in the middle. Also, when you open the video card compartment, you get access to the bottom of your motherboard, where the m.2 slot is often found. This also allows for easy installation of the CPU cooler.Airflow: A++!!! I can't tell you how thrilled I am at how silent I can keep this running. Each vent is over fan intakes blowing directly onto your mobo/GPU/CPU/PSU. And each vent is covered by an easily removable/cleanable dust filter!! Way to go, SilverStone!!CPU Cooler Height: This one is tricky. The website says that it can have up to a 58mm cooler, but I was able to fit in a cooler up to 65mm. I have a 95w TDP processor, which can get REALLY hot, so I really couldn't skimp on the cooler. This is what I did, and I recommend it for anyone else who buys this case:Get a DEEPCOOL GABRIEL CPU Cooler and replace the fan with a Noctua 12cm iPPC 2000rpm fan. I've found that this JUST barely fits into this case cleanly. I can now overclock my CPU and keep my RAM and chipset ultra-cool with the oversized fan. I tried all sorts of CPU fans, but the Noctua industrial 2000rpm fan really was the perfect mix of quietude and cooling power. Anything less powerful wouldn't be able to handle my CPU and anything more powerful is too loud.Cons: As I mentioned, the optical drive cover has a poor fit for the case and gets jammed. But that only bugs me because I happen to use an ultra-slim drive. The feet are useless. They fall off any time you move the tower around. The chassis comes with rubber feet for placing it horizontally, but you would not be able to set anything on top, since the vents are really necessary for the airflow. Still, that's really all I can gripe about. I saw pictures of some guy who fit a liquid cooler into the case, but I seriously doubt that's a feasible solution for most consumers with this case. You'd have to do some major rigging to get that to work.Pros: Airflow. Well-engineered for versatility. Great design. SOLID craftsmanship. Great for gaming or home theater use.Here is my rig. I built this with mostly top-of-the-line components as of February, 2016:Motherboard: Gigabyte LGA1151 Intel Z170 Mini-ITX DDR4 MotherboardCPU: Intel Core I7-6700K 4.00 GHz 8M ProcessorCooler: DEEPCOOL GABRIEL CPU Cooler /Noctua 12cm iPPC 2000rpm fan comboPSU: SilverStone 500W SFX-LRAM: Vengeance LPX 32GB DDR4 DRAM 2400MHz C14 MemoryPrimary SS Drive: Samsung 950 PRO-Series 256GB M.2 Internal SSDSecondary SS Drive: Samsung 850 EVO 1 TB 2.5-Inch SSDVideo Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 970 4GB FTW Graphics Card5Really sleek, well designed case, EXCEPT for the (painful) handleI've been using this case for over a year now, and I really love how the case is laid out; the components all fit the case wonderfully and securely, and it can hold a huge video card thanks to the smart top card bay. The finish is pretty nice, though for a case designed to be moderately portable, I wish the paint was a little sturdier, or maybe included a travel cover. I also wish that you didn't have to remove the handle to get into the case, though ideally you wouldn't NEED to get into the case very often after your initial build. My only MAJOR complaint with the case is design of the handle itself - it's physically painful to carry around the case for more than a couple minutes. The bottom/inside of the handle is comprised of sharp plastic fins that dig into your hand immediately when you pick up the case. I have no idea why the top of the handle, which you barely touch, is nice and smooth, while the interior of the handle is brutally serrated. Horrible design oversight, which almost totally negates the utility of having a handle at all.3it is either not snug and does nothing OR it feels like the plastic is getting forcedPROS:-the design and cable management is superb.-fits my big ol radeon 480 red devil. Comes with the adapter that lays card parallel to mother board.CONS:-Can not access power supply switch as it is trapped inside and it uses an extension cord to expose it on a different side of the chassis.-The foot platforms do not snap on or attach at all, the chassis just sits on top of it. And since it just goes over the air filter part that is indented off of case, and depending on the width you set the platforms, it is either not snug and does nothing OR it feels like the plastic is getting forced. Basically that option I don't even feel like considering.OTHER NOTES:-you put the SilverStone logo on yourself. And you have to choose. center the snowflake, or center the text. not both. Center the Snowflake is probably the better option, and I wish I thought about it more before I stuck it on!-Two fully wrapping outer plates were prone to looking like it is on snug, but on later inspection, a flap had missed. Resulted in many re-screwing and a bit of irritation.-No space or holes for any fans at all.-4 longer screws are probably for the handle bar (Doh)-There is a piece to hold your graphics card in place. May not work if your card is too big. I instead used some twist ties through random holes.5I love it (with some modifications)Pros:looks very sharpfits everything well enough (though wire maintenance around the drive holders can be difficult)love the easy to remove filter screensDon't let my extensive con rant below dissuade you from this case. I am really happy with it and I'm glad I chose this one.Con:Pushing the power button will slide the unit before it depresses the button. Did anyone test the resistance? It makes me want to wire a third party power button into it).The PSU I/O button is sealed of inside the case. If I need to unplug the system or do some digging inside I have to remove the side panels. (Solution: I drilled a finger-sized hole in one panel so I could reach inside. I covered the sharp edges with sugru).The side panels are a pain to remove and reattach. There are so many little clasps inside that I tend to miss one or two (so I have to pull it back a little then try to slide it forward again (and again)). I really don't like that they wrap around from one side to the next. Some have noted that its cool that the side panels are interchangeable but I think we lose out on potential design feature improvements (like an PSU switch access point).For some reason, there is no filter screen on the holes at the very top of the case. I'm looking into adding my own.All that said, I love it.4
