Packing 3 drive bays, 4 low-profile expansion slots, a top fan, and 2 USB ports into a slender steel case, Rosewill's R379-SM gives you a powerful platform for building a solid MicroATX system. Bearing a 300W PSU that acts as a second exhaust fan, this compact case has many of the features you'd expect from a larger box, all arranged to do the job neatly and efficiently.

A spring loaded door covers the 3.5" drive slot, and the CD slot is below that. The drive cage pulls completely out to facilitate your build, and all the cables can be carefully arranged for a professional fit and finish.

Rosewill gives you the box, but lets you put it all together and have the joy of customizing your own private powerhouse!

2 out of 5 eggsGood Case but Not a Great Case

Pros: The pro's for me were the price, case size, and fairly easy installation of all the computer parts.

Cons: My greatest complaint is the noise caused by the power supply and power supply fan. I have a desk top atx mid-tower case with 10 fans that makes far less noise than this case with 1 case fan, power supply fan, and the cpu fan. Most, if not all, of the high pitch noise is coming from the power supply. I think it is a combination of a vibration from the power supply and the power supply fan. Another con, but minor in comparison to the noise, is access to to the DVD.

Other Thoughts: I was going to use this case/computer as part of my media set up. However, due to the noise created by the case/computer and since the thirty day period has passed for returning this case I am now looking at purchasing another case. I'll use this case with spare parts I have on hand to assemble a back-up computer.

5 out of 5 eggs3 years running 24/7 as my pfSense box..

Pros: [-] Very affordable and very reliable Power Supply.
[-] Using my Kill a Watt and confirmed by my UPS unit, it pulls a whopping 18 watts (full build for my pfSense in the "other" comments)
[-] Well built and everything I needed fit perfectly in it.
[-] 3 years of running 24/7 in the washroom (where builders in their infinite wisdom placed the drops in the house I currently live in) so temperatures aren't exactly the most ideal (nor humidity whenever washing whites which happens once a week, so 156 days of the 1095 days its been running non-stop, I have no doubts the humidity spikes up around 90 percent with temperatures in the high 80's).

Cons: [-] I could do without the silver two-tone, but, it's stuck up on a shelf in a wash room, so...

Other Thoughts: My pfSense build:

[-] This case
[-] ASRock H61M-DGS
[-] Intel Celeron G530 Sandy Bridge Dual-Core 2.4 GHz LGA 1155 65W BX80623G530 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics
[-] G.SKILL NS 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-4GBNS
[-] (2x) Intel EXPI9301CTBLK 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI-Express Network Adapter
[-] 64GB Crucial M4 (if I remember right, it was pulled from another defunct system)

4 out of 5 eggsGood for the price

Pros: * Sturdy metal, and no sharp corners
* Relatively easy to work with.
* Plenty of expansion room for such a small case
* Looks decent

Cons: * Front buttons are very stiff
* Pressing the front buttons will somewhat flex the plastic; feels fragile
* PSU seems to run pretty hot
* Exhaust fan has good airflow, but is somewhat loud. Not all motherboards can regulate the speed of it.
* Not much of a con, but there doesn't seem to be any thought to the case screws supplied. Seems to be a random assortment, which doesn't really help when there aren't enough screws of the smaller threading.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I felt this case was fine. I just feel the front wasn't designed properly - seems like it was designed without being tested. I'm not feeling confident the PSU will last long. Otherwise, this is just fine for an office PC.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible design, flimsy, piece of junk

Pros: - The cons outweigh the pros so much so that I can't think of any pros.

Cons: - DVD drive bay door doesn't lock in place, just flops
- PSU blows hot exhaust directly at CPU heatsink making it work twice as hard
- It's basically a slim desktop tower, way too much empty space
- Screw threads are too big so motherboard sits loosely (don't use it vertically)

Other Thoughts: - This thing is awful, just terrible
- Requested an RMA since it's a terrible product and my estimated return was $0.81, what a great deal that is. Might as well resell it online at an auction retailer instead of returning it. Won't be buying anything through here again.

5 out of 5 eggsThe best low profile gaming case ever

Pros: Very easy to build in. I threw in my motherboard, graphics card, and SSD in 20 minutes and I really like the lift-able cage for the hard drives. Solid design and the build is very good. No issues with my power supply yet either ways.

Cons: Maybe sharp edges? I don't know but there could be some close calls?
Pretty dense for a case but at least it's not flimsy.

Other Thoughts: A must have if you want to have a solid portable gaming case but want to use a micro-ATX board. And the cooling is fairly good. I don't recommend high profile CPU coolers due to the lack of width here.

2 out of 5 eggsThe Poorest Made of Cases

Pros: If I was comparing this case with many others on the market I would have no pros about it.

Cons: I can't tell you where to begin. I bought 6 of these for a project and not one case was delivered intact and completely without defect. I should have known that while I was unpacking them I heard pieces inside the box. Things don't fit correctly in this case and just in general I want to be able to unpack a case from it's box and put the computer together. I could not in this case. I was surprised this was a Rosewill product! I have been assembling systems for 20 years. My problems to follow:

Other Thoughts: Six cases bought... not one was perfect out of the box!

1. plastic retaining clips broken off the front face
2. front decorative covers fell off (not secured properly)
3. audio plug was smashed and one prong broken
4. flip down door on the CD/DVD slot had a missing spring on the hinge.
5. hard drive tabs were bent on one of the cases.
6. the SATA power connectors needed to have electrical tape put on them because they don't hold in the hard drives.

2 out of 5 eggskeep looking

Pros: Slim size, I like the power button. Gauge of metal is adequate, not super cheap or flimsy. I won't go so far as to say there's "cable management" but there is a nice spot to tuck most everything away behind the optical/HDD rack.

Cons: No switch to turn ps on/off. Also, ps lacks ATX 12V (8 pin) power connector that has been required by every mb I've ordered in recent history. Thankfully I had an adaptor. Also regarding ps: fan grill has large gaps, had to open the case twice to reroute cable that was falling into the fan.
Optical drive cover found loose in box, I was not fortunate like the other reviewer to also find the spring. I now have the door taped closed, as it just flops open.
If you want the side vent to point up, your front USB ports will be at the bottom. Stands will allow slight clearance, so if you're hell bent on having the usb ports at the top, you might get away with it, but this fan blows out - really should be on top to get heat out.

Other Thoughts: Typically, I'm forgiving and easy to please. Keep looking, this one falls short on too many points.

5 out of 5 eggsNice case, good design

Pros: -Small and Simple
-Lots of room to work (you can remove the ODD mount)

Cons: -Front panel has a tight fit, was hard to take off

Other Thoughts: I can only see this case being used in low profile builds.
Other than the side panel being a little snug, I had no issues with it.

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Case power supply is not grounded. My whole entire system fried after 3 months. Was too late to save anything.

3 out of 5 eggsBuy the Apex case instead

Pros: This is an APEX DM-387 with a different bezel on the front.

Fan is quiet though larger than the included one on the Apex case.

Cons: Same cons as the Apex (though I did find a Startech card reader with bottom mount holes).

However, the front bezel sucks. It's super flimsy, broke the drive door fast (replaced pin with part of a toothpick). The biggest issue though is that the dimensions for the optical drive are way too thin. I used an older Plextor IDE (with adapter) and I had to carve out a lot of the plastic so that the drive tray could pop out. Did they even measure full size optical drives for this thing? It was ridiculous.

Other Thoughts: Just buy the Apex case. Same thing and no carving necessary. Haven't had it long enough to see if the PSU holds up but the same one on my Apex has been running for 3 years now.
