In the original introduction of the Touch series of cases, I took the angle of how everything that is tech related is going to touch panels in some form or fashion. With anything that gets developed, there is always a guy sitting around thinking, what did we leave out of the first attempt? What could we have done better? What happens if we just go nuts and offer as much as we can in the space allowed with the control panel? To be honest, this is exactly what I see has happened to the new arrivals touch panel, and being the namesake of the chassis series, it is only fitting that it is a bit over the top, and should offer anything they can think to make switchable or selectable at the gentle touch of a finger.
On top of an improved Touch panel of this chassis, we are also moving up in chassis classes. Here we go from the mid-tower design of the Touch 320, skip right over full towers, and deliver a Super Tower chassis! The optical bays stay tool-less, but this time there is a whole new look at HDD mounting. Similar to what I have seen in press releases from Lian Li, Xclio is the first to deliver such an implementation to me. This puts Xclio in the lead for not only the Touch panel, but now they are the first to bring me this! Xclio really appears to be stepping up the game from the chassis I remember getting even a year ago. I really like to see this sort of progress, even if it isn't for everyone, it shows there are some people with really good ideas and concepts and that Xclio isn't afraid to stand out and deliver new things.
Today we are going to be looking at the largest offering of the Touch series of cases, the Touch 787 from Xclio. This case not only offers what I covered already, but the chassis comes with ten 120mm fans with blue LEDs in them to cool and illuminate this chassis. It seems like with the Touch 787 Xclio delivers a case that keeps on giving.
At almost every turn and even right in front of you are some really cool tricks and features to be had. Usually with the second of a series I am over it already, and I am rarely excited or even inclined to want to write what I have found. Most times it is all the same concept in a different flavor. With the Xclio Touch 787, it offers enough to stand on its own and is in no way a new flavor of the original. Instead this is more like the main course where the Touch 320 was just an appetizer!
