HBT+ Gravity 6 Mid-Tower Chassis

The HBT+ Gravity 6 is faced with a 3mm thick sheet of aluminum mounted atop a plastic bezel. The corners are rounded, the front is angled, where it is highest on the center line and is cut out for the lower section of the front I/O panel. We also see a slightly raised top section, which inverts the angle used, reminding us of something like the Raven Series of cases.

The front I/O panel is both on top of and down the face of the Gravity 6. Connectivity is all up top, where we find the HD Audio jacks and USB 3.0 ports. The power LED is on the corner where the panels meet, and down the face, is a large power button.

The top panel on the Gravity 6 is angled at the front edge to match the profile of the bezel, but the entire expanse is covered with another 3mm thick sheet of brushed aluminum. The angle we saw at the front is carried down its length, it is cut to surround the I/O panel, and uses the sides and back to allow ventilation.

The left side panel is also made of aluminum, and taking up the majority of the panel is a dark tinted window. The panel is cut along the top and the front edges to clear the venting offered in those locations, and offers rounded corners except at the top, near the back.

Even at the back of the chassis, the angled top continues and has venting on either side of it. Below that, we find the exhaust fan location and the rear I/O cutout. Then, there are seven expansion slots which are vented, the area next to it is as well, but we also find a pair of grommets for external water cooling. At the bottom is where the PSU will reside, and both panels are held in place with thumbscrews.

The right side of the case mimics what we saw on the left, but there is not a large window this time. Just a vast expanse of brushed aluminum to look at, which is cut at the front and top again to allow the same breathability on this side of the Gravity 6.

Underneath of the chassis, we see long plastic feet very near the edges, and they have rubber applied to each of them as well. The back is slotted where the PSU is to go in, and the optional fan location is also well ventilated. We do see tabs for a dust filter, but sadly one is no present here. Near the front of the case is a multitude of holes in the floor, and these are used for pump or reservoir mounting.
