Whats the big deal about this case?
Not being rude but looks 'plain' to me Whats the aim? Silence? Simplicity? Does it have a heap of internal space?

Plain? Maybe.

Simple design. Lightweight. Quality construction. Just enough room for mITX board, low profile GPU, HDPlex PSU, a couple of SSDs and a couple of small fans.

Just 1 80mm fan in the L3, though, and I'm not sure why. More space for SSDs? Simplicity?

thumb.gif , that`s about right smile.gif i also like very much the compact splash for the same reasons but i don`t do water cooling and the case is almost impossible to buy for a reasonable price 450+$ kookoo.gif

My old media player:
http://www.ms-tech.de/eng/index.php/product/detail/pdcid/66/pdid/293




Added two 3,5" drives. About 5mm clearance between heatsink and HDD.
But no upgradability and it ran quite hot when it was turned on.

So decided to get a new case:
http://www.cooltek.de/en/cubes/coolcube-mini/14/coolcube-mini (Also known as the jonsbo V2)
Added two "rails" at the top, gives support for 4x3,5" drives.
Looks quite ghetto, but works just fine.



About 10mm from tallest point on the motherboard to the harddrives and about the same from the case and to the harddrives opposite.

The L3 is a new model. It was either one new model, or stop producing cases all together. The L3 does have a top vent, but the fan mount has been moved to the bottom, and changed to support only one 80 mm fan. If you plan to use a single slot dual width low profile GPU then you can't use the 80x25 mm fan.

It's really designed for two use cases... first for the non-gamer enthusiast like myself, looking to build a small as possible, high performance, energy efficient, silent system, and second for the casual gamer who wants to push the limit of what can be built in the case.

There were clearance, acoustic, and appearance issues with the fans at the top.

Thanks,
James

Thank you very much! I guess the side vent makes up for the missing top fan and I'm trusting James to have put enough effort into testing this. Looking forward to seeing builds in this case smile.gif

That's pretty neat, I was already asking myself if that case was good for anything, but apparently it is. biggrin.gif I would be concerned about the drives just hanging there but as a media player it probably isn't moved around ever, so that should all be fine.
