The XClio Godspeed One Advanced Mid Tower Case


Staring at the XClio face to face, we can see they incorporate four 5.25" bays and just below is a spot to house a 3.5" floppy drive. A plastic vented area breaks up the front panel and houses the XClio logo. Just below is a mesh covered intake, the same as the optical drive bay covering that allows airflow into the chassis in the front.


Setting the Advanced model apart from the more basic Godspeed One are the twin 180mm fans placed in a shroud in the door. These dual LED fans should provide adequate air flow into the chassis for they're being the only provided fans to push cool air into the chassis.


The rear of the chassis houses a top mounted PSU above the rear I/O panel hole. They do provide room next to the I/O area for a 120mm exhaust fan, but they don't send one with it. At the bottom are seven total expansion slots, but one is taken up with the fan controller and LED switch for the fans I just showed in the door.


The panel behind the motherboard tray is what you would expect to see on a more budget minded case. XClio does take an extra step here to vent the front area. This allows for a draw of cooler air into the chassis.


The top of the Godspeed One series has this cowling on them. This not only houses the front I/O, but it acts as a deflector and cover for the two 80mm fans placed underneath, which I will show a bit later.


Looking at the front I/O panel a little closer, there is a better view of what is included. At the top left there is an eSATA connection just above a fan control knob for the fans under the shroud. In the middle are the two 3.5mm jacks for the audio, with the power and reset switches just below. The outer edge of these switches is where the HDD activity and power lights are found. Last but not least, to the right, is a pair of SATA 2.0 ports.
