Yeah, the really strong points were the simplicity and the quality of the components. If it had come with the silent (Cooler Master) fan I tried on it later, it may have done better.

This thing 'could' really be good for an mATX PC, or some other HTPC type setup. It almost worked in mine, except the optical drive comes a little too close to the CPU socket in my current arrangement (I actually have to use a 2u server cooler it is so tight). With a passively cooled mobo chipset and video card, being able to water cool the CPU in there really appealed to me, since server coolers aren't even intended to be quiet (it has something like a 9 bladed 70mm fan + my own fan speed controller for sanity purposes).
