GMC X-21 Trinity - Quiet Computer Casing

In the past, to have a quiet case, you had to install the case with slower spinning fans. While this will reduce the overall noise of the case, in return, you are losing valuable airflow which unfortunately increases case temperature. The X-21 Trinity gives users the chance to use high-end coolers and louder fans which increase CPU overclockability without having to put up with the normal volume increase it causes. Even if you have no interest in overclocking, who can say no to a silent operating computer?


There are a lot of features within the case and a lot of them haven't been seen before in a retail package. While we have seen such items as sound dampening material, it has always been a DIY job. The X-21 gives users the chance to purchase a stylish looking, quality build case that has all the equipment needed already installed to get your PC as quiet as possible.


Due to the case being made of steel its heavier then various aluminum cases which we have grown accustom to, yet you can tell it's a sturdy case and could probably handle a little beating if that's the type of thing you're into. PC Case Gear has the case available for a very reasonable $195 AU (about $125 US) and while it doesn't include a power supply it is very good value for money and does exactly what it is intended for - silent computing!
