from completed build The JoshBOX: lil bro's 1st gaming rig
I wanna give this a higher rating, but it really is a difficult and flawed case. It's pretty old now and it shows it - no thumbscrews, no built-in wire management (does come with a mountable clip), no slide-in drivebays - but, you're not gonna buy it 'cause you want an easy install. You'll buy it cause it's the smallest sub-$50 case on the market with an optical drive slot. I bought it cause we live in a rural area necessitating trips to town for decent internet downloads and don't want to deal with a lug of a case.
Comes with all the screws you could need and then some (including super tiny ones for mounting a 12.7mm slim optical drive). DEFINITELY recommend a magnetic screwdriver. Philips. Long. Thin. 120mm case fan included. Cover is removed via 4 screws and a series of tabs that you really have to watch out for (corner sticking out? rogue tab). And to get your mobo in, you have to remove the triple bay super-structure, add your drives, mount your psu, and then put the bays back on (the lower 3.5 one, again, with tricky tabs).
- Test your build out-of-case.
- Remove the cover and bays and mount the mobo with only ram and cpu.
- Connect led's, power, reset, and fan to mobo.
- Mount and connect psu to mobo. Zip tie some cables to keep clear of your cpu fan.
- Install ssd, hdd, and any laptop optical drive on the bay brackets.
- Remount bays (psu cables mashed a bit).
- Attach power and sata cables to drives. (Recommend 90 degree connectors, 7".)
- Graphics card is swung in from the side (yes, last).
- Connect any psu cables to gpu, finish cable management, reattach cover.
The body's metal with a plastic front panel held on with (you guessed it) tabs. This panel is like half a mm taller than the metal body, resulting in an unflush bottom edge that drags across any surface. (I mean, nice rubber feet are included, but before adding that it's annoying.) As a result (or maybe by default), the lowermost tabs holding this panel on suffer breaks that render them useless. I fixed this via a couple well-placed zip ties mashed down with pliers (you can see it in the corner of one pic of my build), but still, really annoying design flaw. Only other jerry-rigging I did was some mounting tape to keep a power cable from twisting a sata connector.
Still though, with all its faults, the end result is so compact that you can't help but love it - ala stockholme syndrome. See my completed build for any suggestions about alternative cases with similar form-factors.
TL;DR Wow that was hard. Wow it fits.

I really like the Silverstone SG06 case. The only downside is that it needs to use an SFX power supply. Of course, the smaller PSU means a larger CPU cooler can be used.
If you want the option of using an ATX power supply and don't need the drive bay, the Silverstone SG13 case is barely larger, but supports a longer graphics card and an ATX power supply.
I also unplugged the cable for the HD light on the case. The power and HD lights are a very bright blue and the flashing of the HD light can be very distracting.
