Deepcool Steam Castle B Micro-ATX Chassis Review

DeepCool Steam Castle B Micro-ATX Chassis




As we get our first look at the front of this Steam Castle, we can see a lot of design elements all at once. There is a mesh grill at the top, some ventilation on the sides that reminds us of classic car grills, and there is the matt finish, the grooves, and the faux screws that make it appear armour plated. There are also some oddly shaped bits at the bottom; maybe those are the "murder holes" for hot oil.




On top, the grooves and faux screws continue with the plating theme as it works between the four turrets that allow this chassis to ventilate. At the back, we are given that automotive essence once again, with louvers and "frenched" holes that look like they should have some nasty headers coming through them.




This panel will lift off, and once it is removed, the LEDs under each of the four turrets are exposed. Removing this panel also shows us that the top of the chassis is open, and ready for a pair of fans, or a dual radiator. This open space will also provide us with places to run wiring cleanly.




When viewing this side of the chassis, we can still see the turrets on the top. The top of the chassis wraps down and meets the steel side panel containing the large tinted window. We also find that the front curves around to meet this panel, as does the plastic used under the chassis.




The back offers a 120mm fan off to the left, which you could change out for a fan up to 140mm. There are water cooling holes above the four expansion slots, and the rear I/O access is right above the PSU location.




The right side of the chassis is shaped identically to the opposite side. The difference here (other than the lack of a window) is the placement of the front I/O at the front. In the front I/O, there is an LED brightness dial, a tiny reset and a much larger power button, activity LEDs, HD audio connections, and at the bottom are two ports for each USB 3.0 and USB 2.0.




Under the chassis, we see that it has been entirely wrapped in a plastic panel. It offers a place for the very large rubber pads that give it excellent footing on just about any surface. We can also see they cut venting to allow the PSU to draw fresh air in through the panel and the removable dust filter.
