A case that costs 20USD has near twice that in terms of shipping to an USA address. I don't see how this is a cost effective chassis or build platform. For about the same you get a full featured mitx chassis that has support for watercooling and large platter based drives.

I'll pas son this one since this has nothing special about the chassis design. Other itx chassis of this form factor have a lot more going for them.

Other issues are 10mm fans seem to be eithter pure crap or just not available, and more importantly the case is shown with a Ryzen mini ITX motherboaard- I can not seem to find a suitable pico ATX power supply that would power a Ryzen 2200g /2400g. I am sorry, love the idea but this case has way too many issues even at $20.

For the Pico power supply, this will work just fine:
switch
power adapter


Here are 2 example builds from pcpartpicker that use the 2200g/2400g and are mini-itx:

You have to use a pico psu for those systems.

I do see plenty of problems with that.

You could go for the asrock desk mini. Its more expensive, but even smaller using a proprietary am4 motherboard and sodimm.

You can throw a 2400g in that deskmini and have insane performance for the size.
