SkyHawk ATX-4378C-IV Case Review

There are a few reasons why installing my parts into this case was not an enjoyable experience. The first being that the fan blowing onto the CPU and the shaft holding the card holders and the extra cooling fan had to be removed when installing the motherboard. The shaft was on a hinge so it's just a matter of unscrewing one end and folding it up when you need to add/remove parts. The hinge was extremely loose and continually fell on my arms with the slightest movement of the case. The second being that there are alot of sharp edges inside the case and I cut myself on numerous occasions whilst installing my hardware. If you intend on using this case make sure you have sand paper handy. Other than those slight problems, all my parts fit into the case well and I didn't have too many complaints in that area.



Pricing Considerations


As mentioned before, Skyhawk are a Taiwanese based company. The 4378C is a fairly new product from SkyHawk and has not yet been distributed to many resellers. The only reseller we could find that had this case in stock were a popular Australian PC reseller based in Sydney, named AusPCMarket. They are selling the case for $AUD379.50 ($US195) without a power supply. The same reseller is also selling the highly popular Lian-Li PC-60 without a power supply for $AUD396 ($US203). Both cases are quite expensive considering that they do not come with a PSU. We are quite disappointed that not many resellers are stocking this case at the moment and hope to see more in the near future.
