The exterior of this case is very simple yet very sleek and functional for the Small Form Factor application.  Flat Black exterior with red accents surround a 5.25″ bay, 3.5″ bay, Power buttons, and 2x USB 2.0 / HD Audio ports.  We do have mesh on both sides of the case as well as on the back for air flow but we do not have a fan or fan mounts.  As I said earlier, to be safe I would not put a passively-cooled board into this case and stick it in an enclosed area.  While most mini-itx boards are not “hot”, over time they can become quite warm if not ventilated properly.  I would not trust the PSU fan both cool itself and the case.The back of the case shows us  the top-mounted PSU and 1x PCI expansion slot.  Overall the exterior of this case is simple and will easily fit into any situation (black matches everything, or so I’m told).  However with the flat black paint be sure to keep a rag handy as fingerprints seem to pop up everywhere.
