The power supply is in a nice place, but as you can see, it really would have been great to make it three inches shorter. The wires have to bend up 90 degrees to make it to the motherboard.
All of these cords make the case look like a wreck. Making it look clean is impossible. I'm sure you all know how annoying SATA cables can be, and with all of these wires, it is a real pain. I had issues with them popping out and crashing the PC.
The headers for the USB and audio are a little too long for my liking. I realize that different motherboards have different locations for the headers, but I think that the cords are too long. They can easily fit to the headers, but there is too much excess. It just piles up and causes more chaos, and we already have enough of that in this case.
One final aspect I'd like to point out is the low profile expansion slots on the case. They work, but once you take a cover off, you can't get it back on, ever. Make sure that when you take one off you will always have a card in there.
When I turned on the computer, I noticed that it was really silent. Yay, finally a silent PC around here! Oh wait; there aren't any fans in the case outside of the CPU. It's nice to have a silent HTPC, but you need ventilation to keep the parts cool. There are some slots for air to move about, but none of them appear to do much. I would have loved a fan or two.
I managed to stick a fan into the case. It isn't pushing air in or out, but circulating it around the case, and hopefully it is making its way out of the opening. Overall I think that heat isn't an issue with my PC. I have an E2140 running stock and no graphics cards in it. If you have a quad core overclocked CPU, you might have some issues.
