Don’t let the small size of the case fool you, there is lot of room for a build in this case. I plan on running a CPU and a GPU loop with a single 240mm radiator in pull configuration.
The case has perfect dimensions and internal space to install some decent cooling power.
I had no issues getting a radiator in this case. If you are planning on running a loop with a 240mm rad or a 240mm AIO, you will not be able to run two(2) GPUS in SLI/CrossFire. The rad and fans take up enough room on the top to block the second PCIe lane.
Even though the case has support for PSUs up to 160mm tall, I recommend using a SFF PSU to make sure that it does not take too much space. Also the small length of the SFF cables are perfect for this case.

For those who want more storage from a little case, the HDD plate can come in really handy. You can mount three(3) SSDs, and two(2) HDDs on this panel (SSDs on one side, HDDs on the other). That alone will offer you a lot of storage. The plate is not a good idea if you want to show off your build, but there is still a lot of storage space in this case.
Installing a 3.5″ HDD is very easy, just slide in the included rubber grommets onto the drive mounting holes, and screw in your HDD. Easy and secure, you don’t have to fight with any brackets to get your HDDs in.
