Specifications, Availability and Pricing




On their own website, Raidmax doesn't supply too much information about the chassis at all really. They will say that there are five external drive bays, plus a bay for a floppy drive and three internal hard drive bays. They also mention that the Skyline supports micro-ATX and ATX motherboards and the rear supports up to seven expansion slots. Aside from that there is very limited information. For my measurements I used the tried and true tape measure; it's pretty easy to see what those numbers are, but I can only guess at the weight. And to be honest, I'm not that good at guesstimating. I can say the chassis feels light, but I have chassis' that cross the desk weighing in at over forty pounds empty, so "light" is very subjective.


Personally I would have liked to see some specs on the included fans listed with the chassis on the site. Looking around to see if maybe they listed the fans separately came up empty as well. What I can tell you is that the Skyline ships with a total of five fans, four of which are 120mm fans. These have a black frame and a set of seven blue blades to move the air. Two of them are in the top of the chassis blowing out, one is in the rear blowing out and one is in the front blowing into the chassis. The fifth fan is located in the windowed panel and this 80mm fan has blue LEDs to help illuminate the interior.


While the Skyline in its many forms can be found at a few retailers, it isn't what I would say is widely available. Taking a bit of time to price things out and look in Google shopping, I found only three pages of listings. That means that there are a lot of places that carry a Skyline, but many of the hits were repeating e-tailers just showing another version, too. Some of the links aren't such a great deal, asking almost $70 for the chassis and then wanting shipping on top of it as well. I was able to do a little better. Looking where we usually do, I found it lists at Newegg for $69.99, plus standard shipping charges.
