    Probably my favorite computer case of all time. Includes many inherent flaws, such as lack of GPU ventilation, and having to rely on the PSU as your exhaust. With modification, this case is fantastic.

    4 Stars for requiring modification.

    As I said previously for my CPU cooler, any product that requires modding to do something that is WELL within the scopes of reasonable use can't get 5 stars from me. And oh boy, does the TU100 need modding to perform REASONABLY well with midrange components. I modded the bottom of the case for mounting of 2x Noctua A9x14's for air intake. Further mods might be required: a 92-120mm case fan on the side panel as well as 2x 80mm exhaust fans on the top between the handle will help with providing the airflow this case so desperately needs and DOESN'T have from stock. I wouldn't get this case if I wasn't ready to make these mods.

    That being said, I am in love with this case. I'm sure normal people would rate it at 2-3 stars MAX, but I just can't do that. I want to give it 5 so badly, but I know that's just me being super biased. So 4 it is, and that's kind of generous, I feel like.

    Big shoutout to the OCN community of TU100 owners - fer, simmons, myrdahl, and all the others from the thread - and reddit user /u/stupidasian94. Lots of help from other TU100 owners made it possible for me to do this build despite the difficulties entailed.

    List of mods made:

    • Cut 2 holes in the bottom of the case with a hole saw and drilled 8 4mm holes for mounting of 2 Noctua A9x14's. Alterantively, one can go for a 120mm A12x15 or similar low-height 120mm fan and/or perforate the bottom panel instead of cutting holes for the fans.

    • Drilled 4 holes in the back panel for scooting the PSU roughly 15mm towards the side panel. This enables the CPU coolers of up to 70-75mm's to be mounted. Keep in mind you need at least 1cm of clearance between the CPU fan and the PSU in order for there to be sufficient air available to the fan of the CPU cooler. After having scooted the PSU, I've stuffed the hole with a ~20mm wide piece of perforated acryllic. Long-term plan is to replace this with a piece of perforated aluminium, spray-painted black.

    • Replaced the case feet with rubber feet. A fairly simple mod that drastically improves quality-of-life for users of the TU100. The stock case feet scratch any surface they go on, so you either have to put some sort of anti-scratch tape on them or replace them. Also, the stock case feet at <5mm high, and when the bottom panel is modded for air intakes, the fans really need some added height to have sufficient body of air available. Otherwise, you get turbulence and/or reduced cooling efficiency.

    Great case, but one that requires specific components and the ability to deal with tiny spaces. This case has one major flaw: no bottom case ventilation.

    I've read there are previous versions of this case that don't have perforation on the side panel, which probably turns this case more into an oven.

    This is a widely modded case, I recommend checking out overclock forums as they have a TU100 owners thread.

    Pros:

    1. Handle
    2. Can fit 3x 2.5" drives at stock
    3. Fairly easy to work in given the size constraints.
    4. Looks good, i've had people think it's part of a sound system. (subjective)

    Cons:

    1. No bottom ventilation
    2. Only 1 intake
    3. When you install 2.5" drives at the bottom of the case it chokes the GPU even more than normal.

    Great case if you need a LAN/Travel rig. Really small so you need to plan your parts accordingly. 2.5" drives are in an odd place and somewhat restrict air to the GPU. The front fan is weak so you need to get a new one and set it up to exhaust to get decent temps with high end gear.

    Overall I love the case, but a few nit-picky things make it not the best

    I love this case! If only there were ventilation at the bottom. But I still love it though.

    Great case. Temperatures with a low wattage GPU are fine. Should be great with a 1060.
