    Fractal Design Mini C TG is an awesome MATX case. It's perhaps a bit bigger than some other small form factor cases, but it was perfect for my custom-loop dual RAD build with 1080ti.

    Excellent cable management at the back with supplied ties, and more than enough space between the back plate and the case cover to install a Corsair Commander Pro, 3x SSDs, Lighting Node and all relevant cabling for a full-on system.

    Well played Fractal Design.

    Phenomenal case, absolutely no complaints. The clean minimal look shows off your hardware very nicely, especially thanks to the tempered glass. Cable management went very smoothly, although you may have trouble fitting a non-modular PSU if you keep the HDD caddy installed.

    This is by far the best case I have ever used! And I have built in 4 other cases! I love how FD stays with simple but useful designs. I have a feeling that I won't own a case that isn't made my FD.

    An absolute beautiful case. Great to build in and makes cable management super easy! The only problem is that with the motherboard I used, and the position of the case cable gromets the USB 3 header is extremely tight and has alot of stress on it due to the bend and placements. Oh, you'll definitely want a short PSU if you want to use the HDD bays, I used an EVGA G3 and it fits great.

    This matx case has more then most full atx cases, and its well built, and its easy to use. Easy pick. Go for the mesh version if noise isn't a thing that bothers you. This one manages to stay cool with the sound dampening so the noise really just comes out the back. Kinda nice I gotta say.

    Its an amazing case! Plenty of room to navigate and good cable managements. Sadly cannot give it 5stars. For a case that of this price, it seems kind of silly to not have a single motherboard stand off installed.

    Gorgeous, clean case. Would give it 6 stars. Probably my favourite part of my build. Easy to build and cable manage in, has dust filters where you need them and sound dampening as well. Initially was thinking of the meshify mini instead but that one didn't have a clear tempered glass (it was tinted very dark). Now I think I would have preferred this one over the meshify anyway.

    Fantastic case with great features. The TG side panel is clean with the black trim on the glass border. While the footprint of the case isn't the smallest, it's an all around excellent choice for an mATX build for both air and water cooling support.

    The is by far the best quality case I have used! (I've owned Air 240, Jonsbo W2, Silverstone KL06, and Cougar QBX). The case layout out perfect with plenty of room for cable management and drives. Really like that it can support a big cooler and 140mm intake fans.

    Love it. Small without being akward; loads of drive space whether you want SSDs, HDDs or both. Airflow seems perfectly good even with no fans in the top; my components idle at around 25 degrees which is great, and nothing ever seems to get above low-60s in typical workflow. Tempered glass is much clearer than most of the 'smokier' versions out there, which I like.
