I got this case for an HTPC micro-ATX build, and to that end, it's nearly perfect. The case is exceptionally quiet; the two included fans at high speed, the PSU, and a stock Athlon X2 fan together barely whirr, and despite this, case temperatures stay only a couple degrees C about ambient.

The cable management is also excellent. Ties are included that make it possible to route all cables around the perimeter of the board, and extra space near the power supply compartmentalizes all those that go unused.

The appearance lets it fit in with regular stereo equipment. It's unfortunate that only its more expensive brother, the Fusion, has a black front, because it's difficult to find non-black colored DVD drives nowadays.

One complaint: for an HTPC-oriented case, there should be more than two 3.5 inch internal drive bays. It's possible to turn one of the two 5.25's into another space for a harddrive; however, then it would miss out on the case's excellent rubber grommet HDD vibration damping system.

Overall, it's a great case.
