For testing this mATX-case we got a brand new MSI 890GXM-G65 motherboard, and while we were at it, also some other components changed to new ones. From now on this system will be used for all case reviews.

The small case combined with the enormous Noctua cooler mean there's very little room to connect some cables around the CPU-area, but other than that the installation is very straight forward. The hard drive sledges are the same steel ones with rubber grommets we've already seen on other Fractal Design cases.

From the flip side the installation doesn't look quite as neat, but despite this cable chaos, the side panel still fit in place. The case uses an internal USB3-header, which in itself is a welcomed new feature, but for people with no internal USB3.0-headers I'd like to see an adapter included in the bundle. The CPU-cutout could be a bit larger, but even as-is it gets the job done.
