When I think "budget friendly" in chassis design, I think of most of the cases offered currently under $60. What I do tend to find are cases that may look good, but then they lack installed fans, tool-lees features, or both. Of course, the other option is to get an ugly "box" that has more fans, but lacks in appeal and likely will end up under the desk or buried behind other things over time. It is a rare occasion that you can get good looks, loads of cooling, tool-less features, and a few other options to coincide with the term "budget friendly".
Sentey is here to dispel that myth, that you really can have your cake and eat it too! - Back in October I took a look at their full tower chassis, the Arvina GS-6400. Now, this chassis had more room than what we are about to look at, but I can definitely see where Sentey used this basic concept of the Arvina and down scaled it into a mid tower variant. They look to be keeping most of the feature set of the Arvina, along with the external appeal, but this time dropping the price way below the $130 the Arvina demanded at launch.
Today we are going to look at the Optimus GS-6000 mid tower chassis from Sentey. I don't want to give away too much too soon, but this chassis offers one of the fullest feature sets I have seen in a chassis at this price point. This fact alone is a great reason to show the rest of the buying public that they need to take a look in Sentey's direction the next time they buy a chassis, but that isn't all this offers. I say we get right into the specifications so you can see what is on the inside, and see why I really like the Sentey Optimus. The fact that this chassis is only going to leave a dent the size of most tower coolers these days in your wallet, just gives me that much more to praise this chassis for!
