The case exhibits many features the other few Mini-STX cases also have, with a the support for VESA mounting, two 2,5″ storage devices and optionally extra USB and serial ports, along with cutouts for external WiFi antennas.
It’s designed for tower or desktop orientation, with the included stands and rubber feet. You are also getting a 50mm fan with 10mm thickness and 3-pin connector in the standard package, located on the top when oriented in tower-configuration.
No mention is made on the CPU cooler height restriction except that it supports standard Intel Box coolers which are generally 45mm in height. The case is made of steel and plastic, specifically SGCC and ABS. SGCC is a “hot dip galvanized steel” which seems to offer an increased corrosion resistance.
