Quick international delivery, well packaged. Very sturdy steel. Easy assembly, however screws are not magnetic, so be careful and don't drop them when switching out graphics cards. I am using the Minestation 1 not for its intended purpose, but instead as a project box/workstation for Blender, so I need both a relatively powerful CPU and a number of powerful GPUs. The case is more compact than you think, and because of the components I used, I encountered several clearance issues you have to work around: - CPU air tower coolers will take up at least half of your GPU space - CPU water coolers will take less space, but the tubing will still interfere with the rightmost GPU slots. The fan screw spacing on the front and back panels are also not ideal for radiators, but you can at least mount half of a 240 rad. - Using PCIe x16 risers is tight, but doable if you cable-manage everything with ties. It would be much easier if the graphics card mounting rails were not offset to the back and instead were right above the PCIe slots, so the flat stiff riser cables would not need to be twisted, which would require the mainboard to be moved a few cm towards the middle of the case as well as to the right. However... - The mainboard and PSU are very close together already. All my boards have side mounted SATA ports which are inaccessible if you mount the PSU in the left bay. The right bay is better, but it would be ideal if the PSU was simply rotated 90 degrees and stood upright. - My GPU power connectors are on the top of the cards, and the lid will only close if I use the lowest possible mounting point. This may seem like a long list, but honestly this is one of the best cases for my use case I have come across. Thermal performance is excellent, noise is very low, even with a ton of fans. And if I look at the price, I will happily work around these issues. Wish list: - vertical PSU mount - another set of screwholes in the bottom plate to reposition the mainboard - a reusable cover for the PSU hole if you use the right bay - ferrous screws
Excellent chassis for a multi GPU build - my m/board restricted me to x 4 GPUs, but these (double width) fitted with plenty of space for airflow, with 2 spare GPU positions.
Great chassis for multi GPU builds - my m/boards have just 4 GPU slots, so I have just the 4 cards in mine, but the case is sized for 6 cards. Very impressed with the quality of the chassis - recommended.

It feels like one got what one pay for in this case, i don't realy hawe anything to complain about and it actualy looked better than i tought when it's on place and equipped with fans and stuff. It fits well in a normal 19" rack cabinet, it'´s around 2 cm in total mariginal left in the front, so it shall be no problem to fit it in any normal 19" cabinet if one want to. I use some heavy industrial metal fans on it and even they fits without any problem. As said in the description, it needs a rack shelf to rest on since it's not possible to hang it directly into the cabinet, and it's not possible to screw into the cabinet rails at all (at least not without modifications). But that's not a big deal. Tecnically One can build whateewer one want into this cabinet, like cooling systems, industrial controllers (Like CNC controllers), etc. as well. Since it's basically just a big box there are no real limitations for what one can do with it.
