Incredible Quality and Value

Cooler Master MasterBox NR200P SFF Small Form Factor Mini-ITX Case with Tempered glass or Vented Panel Option, PCI Riser Cable, Triple-slot GPU, Tool-Free and 360 Degree Accessibility
Cooler Master MasterBox NR200P SFF Small Form Factor Mini-ITX Case with Tempered glass or Vented Panel Option, PCI Riser Cable, Triple-slot GPU, Tool-Free and 360 Degree Accessibility

Pros: Exceptional build quality - S tier at this price Cools better than most ATX size cases Fits 6 fans with a 2 slot GPU installed 280mm AIO support Easy to work in Easily removed side panels/dust filters Great cable management for ITX Quiet due to its great cooling layout

Cons: The fans that came in the top vibrate at high speed making the top panel rattle. Normally they never spin fast enough to cause problems, but I use my GPU to mine and set the fans to 85%. They make a lot of vibration noise at this speed, I replaced them. Even at 100% my new fans do not make anything rattle. A bit big compared to small ITX cases (Better cooling / fits more stuff) No USB Type C

Overall Review: This is easily the highest quality case anywhere near this price range I've ever seen. I originally was planning on using this case as a placeholder while waiting for a limited supply ITX case to come back in stock. After using this case I am blown away at the quality and especially the cooling capacity. I have 0 intention of replacing this case anymore. My 3090 is actually 2c cooler in this ITX case than my ATX case. Even my 5950x only hits 82c with PBO enabled pulling 220watts. The cooling layout of this case is exceptional, easily makes up for it being a bit bigger than the smaller ITX cases. The smaller cases simply can't fit 6 fans with a GPU installed. It is a bit bigger, but it is just big enough to fit 2 fans above the motherboard and 2 fans under a 2 slot GPU, any smaller and they would not fit. This is probably near the limit to how small a case can be without making any compromises to cooling capacity. 10/10, 100% recommended to anyone looking for an ITX case.

Easy to use, works great.
