Great Case for Budget Builds

Strengths:

Great case for budget builds. The fact that it includes a 450W power supply was what attracted me to this case, thereby not requiring for me to break the 100 dollar threshold I set. There is plenty of USB ports and no lack of expansion with plenty of space for mounting 2.5'' drives, 3.5'' drives, as well as 5.25'' optical drives. The motherboard mounts are elevated so there is no risk of the board touching the case, and it fit an mini-atx board with no trouble, just required putting board in at a slight angle. Front mounted USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 as well as Audio and Mic work great, and are tightly mounted into case housing.

Weaknesses:

A few weaknesses exist, such is the cables the front mounted audio and USB 2.0 are a little short. I managed to connect them but the cable is pretty stretched, with where pins are mounted on board. So make sure that when selecting a board to fit this case that the audio and USB pins on the motherboard are closer to what would be the front of the board/case. Power supply is quite and has plenty of connectors for hard drive and optical drives, but contains only one additional 8-pin connector for graphics cards (beyond the one utilized for the CPU) so this may not work for those looking for something better than a budget to mid range graphics card. Lastly while the case does include one 120mm fan, there appears to be only one more additional spot on the front of the case to mount an 120mm fan. This means overclockers looking for advanced liquid cooling may need to look other cases that support dual 120mm fan setup.

Additional Comments:

Bought with MSI B450M Gaming plus, AMD Ryzen 5 3600, Western Digital Black NVMe 500GB, 16 (8x2) GB of Thermaltake 3200 Mhz ram. Using old Asus RX 560 and Windows 10 Education to save on costs. Overall great buy for a work at home system that will also support moderate gaming.

InWin EFS052

Strengths:

Compact design with 2 drive slots for M2 SSD, plus 2 drive bays for 3.5 HDD. Comes with 450 watt power supply. Case quality is pretty good

Weaknesses:

The front panel audio cable is about 3 inches ( 6cm ) too short to reach the mobo audio connector. The only way it would reach is by re-routing it diagonally behind the 3.5" HDD bays. This way it connects but the thickness of the cable is just enough to prevent installing a HDD using the provided drive clips.

Additional Comments:

Just built this with an ASRock B450M-Pro4 mobo, and Ryzen7 2700 with 16GB DDR4 2666 and Intel M2 SSD. I also removed and re-installed the case fan to make installing the mobo easier. A longer front audio cable and this gets 5 Stars,

Great Case

Strengths:

Front USB (4 Ports 2x 2.0 & 2x 3.0) Usb 3.0 not shown in Pic. Solid - professional looking. Rear case fan

Weaknesses:

Tight space for Micro-ATX Motherboard

Additional Comments:

This is a great Case - I have probably used about 6 in the recent months. Only problem is that I have to remove the internal fan to allow the installation of the motherboard (ASUS Micro-ATX). Then re-install the case fan.

BEST STARTER CASE

Strengths:

I recently built my first gaming PC, and this case was the one i got with it. So far it has performed amazingly and I have had no problems with it. The grounds which keep the motherboard from touching the case are actually built in, which was very convenient. It has a sleek design and quick release side cover. It has a spot in the front (where the cool design is) which is a great place for a fan.

Weaknesses:

None so far

Additional Comments:

I highly recommend this case to anyone who has a low budget. This case (so I am told) would also work great for server computers.
