Specifications, Availability and Pricing
This mid tower chassis's body is built from 0.5mm thick, SECC steel. This includes the main body and both doors. There is a shroud that houses the front I/O and the actual front of the chassis (panel) that are both made of black, ABS plastic. The entire outside of the chassis is a combination of shiny plastic and a flatter finish on the metal. Speaking of the front, the Godspeed One can house up to four exposed 5.25" drives, and one 3.5" drive. Inside the chassis is capable of holding up to five 3.5" drives. Jumping to the rear, this chassis has up to seven expansion slots, although one is already taken up by a controller which you will see later in the review.
As I mentioned, the Godspeed One Advanced houses a few tricks of its bigger brother. This chassis houses two, 180mm, blue LED fans in the door. These are both wired together and controlled by the controls found in that seventh expansion slot. Once you get the air in, you need to get it out. XClio chose to do this with two, 80mm, and no LED fans. These take the air and blow up into the bottom of the shroud that also houses a controller that can change the speed of these two fans. From what I remember of the 1000's 180mm fans, these should do quite the job of providing good air flow into the Godspeed One Advanced chassis.
Sub $50 pricing isn't that hard to find in a chassis, it can be done via Google in just a few clicks of the mouse. Finding one with any optional equipment or tool-less hardware makes the choices a lot slimmer. Looking around on the wide, wide internet, I was only able to locate one e-tailer that stocks the XClio Godspeed One Advanced chassis. Want to take a guess at where? That's right! Newegg is the one holding current stock of this chassis. I know I said sub $50 pricing, and this XClio falls just under that. Following the Google link over, I found the chassis for $49.99 over at Newegg. Of course there is shipping involved, we can't get around that. Let's move on to the images and see just what the Godspeed One Advanced chassis is all about.
