Build and Final Product

The optical drive was easy enough to install and lock into place with the clips. With everything now wired up, we also made sure to break up the fans into zones. The back fan was attached to the hub for 12V constant power, while the top and front fans were separated on the fan controllers.

This is the kind of chassis that takes an ATX motherboard, a fairly good sized cooler, and an averagely long VGA and just makes it look tiny. While we in no way came close to needing this much room for our build, once a couple of radiators, a pump, and maybe a couple of reservoirs are in here, or you choose an HPTX system, the room will come to very good use.

Nothing out of the ordinary out back either. The rear I/O cover snapped right in, the card went in nice and easy, and the PSU tightens up nicely against the gasket at the bottom.

We did find that there is sort of a choke point for the wiring, but with 30mm of depth behind the motherboard tray, stacking wires does not conflict with the panel. We also made good use of the extensions not just for looks, but rather because they allow for the wiring not to be stretched getting there.

As we close up shop for testing, this is yet another one of these designs that what you see out of the box is what you end up with when finished, and we really like that. Of course, we could have the top popped up and the side plate removed, but it is still as clean and sleek as it was when we started.

When the chassis is powered, the ring around the power button illuminated with green LED light. There is an occasional red flicker of LED lighting--which we were unable to catch--in this ring as well to denote the HDD activity of the system.

With the chassis now running and the testing started, we find the amount of airflow, even with everything closed and the controllers set low, is enough to keep everything cool. Once the controllers are allowed to run full speed and we open the Active Air Chimney, we are at 40 dB of noise, but our system is nice and chilly.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Chad Sebring

Jumping into computers for just the aspect of gaming is how it all started for me. After a solid year of gaming, I caught the overclocking bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and I have had both air and water setups to tinker with. With a few years of abusing computer parts, I looked for something new. I then decided to take my chances and try to get a review job with a online site. As an avid overclocker, I am always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals technology.
