I want to start off saying a big thanks to Azza for sending me this case for review.
The case is packaged inside a brown cardboard box that details the product inside. Styrofoam protects the case itself from damage inside and a plastic bag keeps dust away. Static cling plastic is used to cover all glossy parts and the acrylic window.
The exterior of the case, once you've removed the cling wrap, shows its true colors. It's a black case with glossy plastic parts, it brings a different feel to that standard matte case. Appart from what, the layout is very basic and standard.
The case has flexibility as far as the PSU goes, it can be oriented in both directions. It also has 8 expansion slots, making quad SLI or quadfire a possiblity. Moving up, we see the 120mm fan slot, no possibility for a 140mm fan.
The case has removable hard drive cages, but the 5.25" bay is fixed with rivets. The passthrough for the 8-pin EPS is done differently by leaving the CPU cutout larger at the top. The power supply sits on anti-vibration rails and the bottom has room for a 120mm fan.
The glossy exterior features 4 USB ports, two 2.0 and two 3.0 along with HD Audio.
Back of the case
The back of the case has hook and loop straps (velcro) for managing cables. It also has passthroughs for all major cables, but no room 2.5" drives, which I consider a big downside.
Good fan options though, three at the top, two at the front, one on the back and on the bottom. Five included fans in this case make it a great purchase.
The case can support up to three 5.25" single devices.
Cable management and GPU
The case has room for almost 12 inch GPUs. As far as cable management goes, there's about 1 inch for parts of the back, while some other parts have about 3/4 inch, which is still decent.
Considering the price tag of $99.99 I consider it a bit steep for the overall quality of the case. It still is a good option if you intend to store a big system. At 79.99, it would've been a much better deal. I give this case a 4 out of 5 flames.
