Xclio Touch 787 Super Tower Chassis Review

Final Thoughts


The touch series cases have now not only added simplicity with the touch controls for the power of the PC, the LED lighting, power of the fans, three various speeds, silencing the beep, and even locking the control panel are all just as easy as a soft touch for a second on the appropriate button. At first, what I thought was just going to be a larger rendition of the 320 we just looked at, I am pleasantly surprised to see that the ideas and implementation of those ideas are still coming from Xclio as they keep pace with other solutions, just in a different manner. Most cases in this price range offer some sort of removable hard drive racks, and Xclio does too. When the drive racks are in place, even then the orientation of the drives is just so natural to allow airflow and ease of access to then drives with just the release of a clip.


While I would have liked to have seen a USB 3.0 20-pin connection on this case, at least we do still get USB 3.0 in the front I/O, even if it does take up one from the rear I/O to do so. There weren't any real fit issues, but I must say these door panels are some of the tightest fitting panels I have seen in a while. It really took some force to remove the panel, and when re-installing it, I had to really force them back in place as well. The only real downside that I can speak of, and I better do it with the case off, is the noise level of these included fans. I thought the Touch 320 was a bit loud for my tastes, double the fans, and you can imagine things don't get any quieter. While the fan speed is adjustable, on high speed, the noise is too much for me to personally like it. If I were to use this chassis the fans wouldn't make it past low speed. Even then the ten included fans offer plenty of air at low speeds to sufficiently cool the interior and my components.


Both the noise levels and the limited availability are going to affect the final score, but they can always improve the amount of stock available for the Touch 787 over time, so don't take that hit to the score into effect really. What we are left with, bottom line, is a super tower chassis that has a lot of the latest in features while adding a few new ones, packaging it in an aggressive looking façade, and delivering this chassis at a respectable price point. I have to say that Xclio offers everything basic and advanced users would want, and with the listing of $159.99, the Xclio Touch 787 is enough case to stand tall in a segment of cases that is heavily populated already.
