All About the Case

 

In truth I really just wanted the case. I've used variations on this case for several years and the air flow and arrangement work for many solutions. Newegg didn't list the case separately and other sites were selling the bare case for ridiculous...

The case has rolled edges, good air flow, and is compatible with many low profile mini-ITX boards ; The power supplies last a good long time ; Fans are quiet and also last a long time

None

Key Points You Should Know

 

Before you buy you should note the following: Update the BIOS to the latest before installing OS. (Tech support says earlier BIOS' have an issue with locking up the machine. Pull power for a couple minutes to unlock.) Machine was designed for 32 bit...

Cool and quiet ; Has an HDMI port ; Has an IR connector on board

Limited OS compatibility ; Can't use full 4GB of RAM in Windows

Decent little box. Good for surfing and email.

 

I have 3 different bare bones that are foxconn. All basically the same. Close in configuration to this one. The different model bare bones (those that include at least an SDHC card reader) allow you to put an OS onto an SD card and boot from it. Would...

1. small ; 2. Just add: a). RAM, b). HDD and c).optical drive ; 3. Unit contains chassis,mobo, cpu ; 4. cooling is passive via heat sink, so fairly quiet

1. some issues with locating correct linux drivers ; 2. this model lacks any built-in card readers ; 3. only 1 PCI slot for expansion ; 4. Not super fast but adequate to surf with and read/compose email ; 5. expect to add about $75 to $100 to each unit...

PSU failure

 

This machine runs cool and stable with a Celeron G530, 8GB RAM... I am using a passivly cooled Radeon 5450 half height video card, so I can't speak to the integrated video. I didn't have any problems described with the CPU cooler/fan combo or the...

Price, appearance

Failed PSU... noisy PSU fan

Poor design

 

box is poorly designed and it is not that small. I've seen smaller box that fit a lot easier with the hardware. other than that, it's running without a problem so far.

cheap, compact and quiet

3 things ; 1. If you're going to install a 5.25" CD rom drive, which most people would, you would find that the it's impossible to fit without damaging the cd-rom's sata cable. The end of sata cable would collide with the heat-sink and you won't be...

Nightmare

 

If it weren't for these two issues this would be a great little machine. If Foxconn had some real support that would be nice.

When it is working it is a great machine

I am on my second one and it won't boot with USB connected. Also, at boot and waking from sleep all I get is snow on my TV. I have to turn it on and off several times at boot for it not to show snow. I am using this as a HTPC and it is my only way to...

Sleek, compact, speedy

 

CPU:Intel Core i3-2120 Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz RAM:Pareema 2x2GB 240-Pin DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) HDD:Samsung Spinpoint F3 500GB 7200 RPM ODD:Sony Optiarc Model AD-7280S-0B Internal graphics are fine for business use

Price - under 100 on sale w free shipping ; Sleek and compact, good performance ; Quiet - as long as you turn automatic fan power control on in BIOS, it defaults to off ; Needed 5 inexpensive business desktops, great value for the spec

As others have said, very tight. Make sure the CPU cooler is facing the correct direction - when installed correctly it gives an extra half inch to the optical drive bay. Even with the special Sata/power 'cheater' that rotates power 90 degrees on the...

Great Little Box

 

Overall was pleased with the case.

Very Quiet, compact, and professional look. Great feature set for such an inexpensive case

Ability to mount second 3.5" drive is not available without a 5.25" drive converter kit (I was able to screw it into the side of the cdrom bay but not ideal) If you have small form factor drives (2.5") there is a second mounting space inside for that...

Nice barebone, but watch out for the optical drive

 

Here are the specs of the machene, built around this: Obvoiusly case, PSU and MB from this barebone CPU: Intel I3-2100 3.1GHz RAM: Mushkin Enhanced Silverline 2x4 GB DDR3 1333 (the max speed officially supported by the MB) HDD: 1TB Hitachi 7200rpm...

Price (119 on sale with free shipping) ; Looks and size (a friend wanted a small, no bright leds/fans case for his new PC - besides the blue led under the optical drive this requirement was met) ; Fast delivery to Montreal - in less than 3 days from...

Tight - the box cooler of the I3 2100 this was paierd with makes impossible to put the drive cage. So even if you don't like the Foxconn heatsink that comes with the barebone, use it. The fins of the heatsing are offset towards the rear of the case...

Nice computer but

 

Installed a core 2 duo and 4gig of ram...lots of power in a small case

I have yet to figure out how to turn it off short of pulling the plug. It will always shut completely down and then restart. I have checked the bios and haven't found the answer yet. Checking the web for an answer but no luck yet
