It isn't very often that I agree to look at a duo or trio of cases from the same manufacturer all in one delivery. Case and point as to why is just like when I looked at the trio from NZXT and the duo from MSI. Typically what I will receive is essentially multiple flavors of the same chassis. Of course the exteriors are rarely exactly the same, the frame and offerings within the group are usually pretty similar, if not just one case offering more fans. That combined with the failure of GameTiger to impress me with their Xniper PR-3 chassis, I really wasn't looking forward to going through the motions for another case that may or may not be very similar to what we just looked at. I will say this, even this early in the game; it is hard for me to keep a poker face trying to hide the fact that I am really impressed with the 180 degree turn I have taken from almost loathing one case, to actually being able to get behind a product from that same company.
In almost every aspect that I kicked the Xniper in the teeth for not having or overlooking, you won't find those things in the latest chassis I'm looking at here today. Where the first one lacked many features such as fan controllers, USB 3.0, had cheap break-away slot covers and a limited drive cage design, you won't have this problem here. Dealing now in the Advanced Case series of designs, GameTiger raises the bar from our last look at their products and gives users a case I think they can actually do something with. Not only does this offering include a pre-wired fan controller, Native USB 3.0, replaceable expansion slot covers and gets a better design for the drive bays, there is still a couple of "tricks" I am going to hold until I can show them to you.
The chassis we are looking at today is the T-Rex FR-16 from GameTiger. This chassis, while still a compact mid-tower like the Xniper, the layout is so different and the offers are so good, that I may be eating some if not most of my words from the last time we discussed GameTiger.
I say we just get on with the business at hand and see just how much salt I am going to need to flavor those words because GameTiger has actually sent me something that when compared to the Xniper, it is just impressive that this chassis comes from the same manufacturer.
