The Packaging and Exterior

ImageImage
The case arrived in the  retail box. The box was adorned with images of the case as well as some information of what is to be found inside. The box seemed quite large and when I picked it up, I was pleasantly surprised by the weight of it. At least this was not going to be a flimsy cheap case judging by the weight. I opened the box to find the case protected by plastic and dense white foam. It seemed to be well protected from damage and my expectations were upheld when none was found.

This case  is quite a beauty to behold. With clean lines, the front bezel sports louvers from top to bottom. There are 5 external 5 1/4” drive bays and 2 external 3 1/2” drive bays, all displaying the same louvers as the bezel. The power and reset buttons are nice and clean as well. The rectangular buttons are surrounded by blue light when powered up. The front panel I/O ports consist of a mic, headphone, and 2 USB ports (located on the side of the bezel under a small door). Though this keeps the front of the case nice and clean, some users may find this a little cumbersome.

Our review sample came with a side window. The plexi is quite thick and designed very well, with holes were drilled into the panel to allow air to pass through to the optional 80 or 120 mm fans (should you choose to add them).

The back of the case is nothing out of the ordinary. If you look closely however, you will see the tool-less retention brackets on the 7 expansion slots. There is also a 120mm clear fan mounted for exhaust. This could serve as a mounting place for a radiator for all those water cooling buffs out there.
