The size of the case is also reasonable, neither too big nor too small. As a point towards the size of the case it seems likely that a standard PSU’s cabling may not be long enough to reach the ATX power connection on most mobos as this is normally situated near the top of the board where the PSU is normally attached. However, since the PSU must be mounted at the bottom this may pose a problem. Due to the size of the case there is lots of scope for modding and cable management. The case supports e-atx motherboards and large PCI-e cards such as the 8800 ultra, which you would have a hard time getting into most cases.
