Introduction, Specifications and Pricing
Sentey is a company that has been around for a while now, and with such a huge selection of cases, it would take us quite some time to see and review them all, but we have had our fair share of them along the way. The thing is, while most of what we have seen in the past, this latest chassis lacks anything to do with any of them aside from the Sentey name being present on the front of this chassis. While it will not take you long to recall that this chassis resembles the BitFenix Prodigy design, sans the handles, when it came to even BitFenix offering their Micro-ATX version, even they did not lay it out like you will find in this new case.
While many users out there are migrating from huge full towers to something more space conscious, it is silly for any company out there trying to compete not to attempt to offer their own take on a cube style case, and this is exactly what Sentey is doing. With a lot of options out there in the SFF chassis scene, Sentey has the cards stacked against them before they even got started with this design, but to stay relevant, you have to do this sort of chassis, even if you are late to the game.
With no further ado, we would like to introduce the Sentey SS6-2440, from their Slim series of cases. While they have set it into that series, don't get any preconceived notions, as this chassis may be squat in size, but it is in no way a slim design in our mind. As we addressed, this Micro-ATX tower design is more along the lines of the Prodigy, yet is still able to offer room for anything you could want inside of the chassis, while keeping with a horizontal motherboard tray. Without giving too much away up front, it is now we ask you to continue on and see just what Sentey has going on with the SS6-2440, and figure out if this is the next case for your space saving ideas of grandeur.
With the SS6-2440, Sentey is sure to provide every ounce of information they can in their charts. We see the name is the model number as well as also being the part number to keep things simple, and we see it also comes with a one-year warranty. As for its structure, we find that this chassis is classified as a Micro-ATX tower that comes in white. There is also a black version, but it is named the SS6-2441. This chassis is made from SGOC steel and ABS plastic and will house Micro-ATX, FlexATX, Mini-DTX, ITX, or a Mini-ITX motherboard. The power supply is located in the rear at the bottom, there is 320mm of room for a video card or two, and offers 150mm for CPU coolers as well. We also see that there is water cooling support, a motherboard tray, and there are options for basic wire management.
We covered the color already, but we did not get to the 15mm feet under it. The side panels are solid and do not offer a window, but they also cover the "grid" at the top, which we assume is what they are calling the design of the plastic there, there is no LCD display, but the panels do use thumbscrews. In the next section, we see there is a single external 5.25" bay as well as a single 3.5" bay, but internally there is room for two 3.5" drives, a single 2.5" drive, and at the back, they offer four expansion slots. The last bit of the left column then shows us that there is one USB 3.0 port, a pair of USB 2.0 ports, HD Audio jacks, and a card reader installed into the front I/O panel.
Moving over to the right hand column, we are first shown the cooling options. There is a 120mm LED fan in the front of the chassis, but the sides, top, and bottom do not offer any cooling options, which leaves us with just a 120mm fan in the back as the cooling options in a nutshell. We are then given the dimensions of this chassis where we find it to be listed as 345mm high, 265mm wide, 385mm deep, and weighs in empty at 4.3 kilograms. The last bit that the chart has to offer for us is to let us know that there is an included dust filter at the bottom of the chassis to keep the PSU nice and clean.
Funnily enough at the time of writing, when it comes to locating this chassis, we find references of it inside of the US, but no actual listings at any of our favorite haunts. Even with the limited availability, one look at the product page and we are made aware of the MSRP for this design. We are happy to say that they are listing this chassis for only $59.99. They even have a list of where to buy their cases inside of the US, with three pages of companies, but no matter which we checked of the lesser known companies, or even the big name e-tailers, we are finding nowhere that currently stocks this chassis. Other than trying your luck on eBay, if you want this chassis and are inside of the US, you may need the help of a friend overseas to actually obtain this chassis at this point, and once shipping gets involved with that concept, we would guess the price would be near double by the time you got your hands on the SS6-2440, which is a shame, as we know many would like this chassis.
