GameTiger T-Rex FR-16 Gaming Mid-Tower Chassis
The front of the T-Rex reminds me of a high rise building. Wide and stable at the bottom, lots of layers like floors in a building and as you get higher, the chassis steps back to allow light to all the tiny people at street level.
Just above the four mesh 5.25" bay covers you find the GameTiger name and logo. Above both you will find the front I/O panel that offers USB 3.0, headphone and microphone jacks, the power and reset buttons and a trio of USB 2.0 ports.
Just behind the front I/O panel there is a dial and an LED. The dial operates the fan controller, while the LED shows it is functional. Moving just a bit further to the back you run into the 3.5" HDD dock. It has rubber strips to stabilize the drive, but offers no guide rail or mini door for a 2.5" drive.
Taking the whole top into view, you would think finer details were through with me saying there is some mesh over the 120mm fan that blows out the top of the case.
That would be true if the mesh didn't have a pressure release to allow it to hinge open to the back of the case to allow you to have access to the fan for replacement or maintenance without having to completely remove the top of the case to do so.
The left side of the T-Rex look nothing like a dinosaur either, but it does offer a large mesh panel that will allow for a mild flow of air through it due to the fans inside of the case. If that isn't enough flow for you, you can install up to four 120mm fans (and appears to take a 200mm as well) here for added airflow.
From the back you get an idea of how thick the top of the chassis is as it steps down to the steel. There you get a pair of pass-through holes for tubing above the 120mm exhaust fan. You then see the seven expansion slots and the bits of the ends of the red latches. That leaves the bottom for the PSU.
On the right side of the T-Rex you don't get an intention to help remove the panel, but you do get a few millimeters of room with the large bump across most of the panel to help to allow a bit more wiring behind the tray.
Under the T-Rex you get two large feet with two pads on each to give this good footing. The back foot assembly has a bit of a filter built into it under the PSU, but the other half gets a removable filer. There is an optional 120/92/80mm fan mounting hole that also has its own dust filter.
