The case itself its great, it fits perfectly in my comms cabinet running pfsense. I've removed the front fans and strapped a 120mm fan in there instead to keep things quiet. However the ordering process from X-Case was poor. You have to pay for you other with either paypal or a link which they email out to you. I received multiple emails from them about the order and they twice got my address wrong in those emails. I also received another customers order details which makes me very concerned about the safety of my own data with them. I spent a while wondering if I should even order as it seemed like a scam, but they did deliver the case promptly in the end.
great product, great and responsive communication about tax deduction when shipping to sweden
The case is elegant and solid. I wanted a short rackmount rack to integrate together with my other rack instruments. I removed the front fans and use only a Noctua CPU fan + a Seasonic PSU and it's extremely quiet. Regarding the psu I had some big trouble installing it because of the short space: the cables were touching the front two-level separator and I was forced to saw a bit of it, losing the possibility to mount one of the HDD there. I also have to say that mounting the HDD there wouldn't be optimal because the screws were too close to the pivot and couldn't lay it properly and have to move it forward to the left and let it hang only on two screws. Regarding HDD mounting, in some configurations if you screw it then it lays on a plate and it's a bit hard to plug sata connectors.
The item is well-made and sturdy - I would say its short-length unique rack form justifies its slightly expensive price.
Like it alot! :) Great case if you're short on space and are using a mATX mobo. If the case is located near you, then you might want to consider replace the fans, unless you prefere the sound of a storm in your work space. It can be a challange if you (like me) are using a non-modular PSU and an ATX mobo, in which case you'll need to think alot of cable management as well as using spacers to rais the SSD:s under the PSU to be able to connect the cables. However, if you're a musician with a lack of space (as I am), then remember that you only build it once and then don't have to touch the case (besides from the power button) untill the spring cleaning. All in all, a greate case, if (like me) you're lacking in space and like fun and creative challange (if using the "wrong" components).
