    I think the handles make a case more portable than a small cube. just saying why don't more companies put handles on their mini itx cases?

    I have the blue version of this case, nice little case. You can fit an AIO 120mm water cooler, I have myself. Silverstone has a slim one that is nice and works well in it. But if you use the fan instead I recommend turning it around and using it as an intake fan on the rear….which will use the PSU as the exhaust. It cools better that way, I've done it both.

    I have the DIYPC version of this case running a Gigabyte motherboard and the same gpu as Linus mentioned. It's awesome.
