Pretty darn lightweight. I used an ASRock H470-ITX/ac mobo, with both 1GbE and 2.5GbE, and AC wifi (Wifi 5), and dual M.2 NVMe slots, 2x DDR4 DIMM slots, 4x SATA6G ports, front USB3.0, front USB2.0. Paired with a G6400 Pentium 4.0Ghz dual-core w/HT 10th-Gen CPU.
I didn't use any sort of "fancy" RGB, although I thought about getting an RGB PSU, and RGB RAM. It would probably make it look nicer. And I was going to use a Rosewill Blue LED 120mm case fan at the top, but rather than search for it, I had a Scythe dual ball-bearing 120mm fan (in black) handy, so I just used it. It seems like you probably do need at least one fan in the rig, and the top port seemed the best place to put it.
The PSU mounts internally, sucking air in from the inside, and blowing it DOWNWARDS, which is kind of wierd, since the top exhaust fan is UPWARDS. Too bad there isn't a PSU fan reversal switch.
I used a Rosewill Leptop 500W 80Plus Gold Semi-Modular ATX PSU, it is quiet. The whole rig is pretty whisper-quiet, the Scythe DBB fan is only 1200RPM, and I can't hear it over my mining rig(s) and window exhaust fan.
Given how mostly-simple this thing is, I wish it were more around $50 or even just $60, $67.99 seems slightly steep for it, but it does look really sweet externally.
The power LED is a blue ring around the power switch, and the HDD LED turns it red, briefly (or purple).
It has a single front USB3.0 and a single front USB2.0 port, and a headphone and a mic port.
