Product Page



I want to start off saying a big thanks to Azza for sending me this case for review.

Product Specifications



Packaging





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.

Exterior




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.

Back





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.

Interior








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.

Exterior




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.

Fan mounting




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.

5.25" Support




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.

Conclusion

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.

Not really very impressive looking. Looks really plasticy like the old Xion cases. Too bad since I love my Solano 100 Full tower....its built like a tank.

Honestly for the price, I was expecting less plastic, but if it was matte outside instead of gloss, it'd feel closer to it's MSRP.

Yeah I was thinking the same thing. The ginormous molded plastic faceplate certainly resembles a RaidMax faceplate. And really, do we need 5.25 bays? Let alone 3 of them?
