Nice little server/NAS case

I've been using this case for my home server for about a year, and am very happy with it. The build was one of the quickest and most painless I've ever experienced due to a very thoughtful layout. It was (and still is) a bit on the expensive side, but the design and finish are good enough (despite minor niggles) that I don't regret it.

Pros:

- Small.
- 4 hotswappable 3.5" drive bays with backplane, up to 6 total. That's a lot of storage in a tiny case.
- Removable motherboard tray with cutout. Top marks!
- No case vibration. This was a problem with a previous Lian Li case I owned, thankfully not this one.
- Very quiet 140mm fans.
- Effective dust filters, with one caveat (see cons).
- Superbly high quality machining and finish.
- DTX and extended mini-ITX motherboard support with 2 PCI slots. Rare, but essential to those that need it.
- Good looking.

Cons:

- Expensive.
- PSU is mounted opposite CPU, leaving only 80mm for CPU cooler. I used a Noctua NH-L9i for my i3, but high TDP CPUs might be a problem.
- Side panels are toolless and just pop off (pro) but one of the popper things broke off straight away (con). Makes no difference to me since the panel still mounts securely, and no more have broken off since.
- Front panel USB 3 cables terminate with external plugs, with a little hatch on the back of the case for routing them to the outside! Had to buy an adapter to connect them to my motherboard's internal header.
- Front dust filter mesh starts to sag inwards over time causing it to rub against the fan blades noisily. Corrected by inserting washers between filter and fan, then sealing the gap with electrical tape.
