so given what i'd call a dearth of micro ATX "high quality" options I stumbled across this case when looking for a new case for a build and wow its actually quite nice.

is its newegg link. There is a slightly different version the CSE-731d that has a media reader/front audio and usb instead of just 2 usb ports (i didnt get it because i bought the case at superbiiz.com with a 15% off coupon and the usb only one had free shipping....which made the total cost $20 less)
that said, this case is quite nice. very very well made, which is the type of thing you'd expect from super micro.
that said, the included power supply is even nice. 300W but its a 80plus bronze "ablecom" that is 86%+ efficient. the included 92mm case fan is even pwmm and mounted with those zalman style rubber things. and outside of the motherboard screws everything is screwless.
now its about $90-100. but worth it. i've had an antec nsk3480 before and i think this is a better case. plus it has 4 3.5" bays and 2 5.25" which is more than the antec (the antec has one bay on the bottom floor of the case which is well... awkward). its not a particularly huge case either so its not almost full atx size.
anyhow, just wanted to give people a heads up who are looking for a higher quality micro atx case given the lack of choices generally. seems like usually its always some very expensive htpc desktop case, or something without full size slots, or something really cheap and flimsy like all the coolermaster RC3xx cases.
