Case Build & Finished Product

Without the need to use a DVD or Blu-ray reader in our builds, we find the front of the chassis has not changed one bit since we pulled it out of the box. While this is not fancy, it is not too basic either, making it something that could go anywhere.

There were no issues when it comes to mounting the motherboard or the AIO for that matter. However, we do see quite a bit of VGA sag, and we did have to force the back of the chassis inward to mount the card too. Outside of that, the wires are clean and mostly hidden, and the Alpha interior is tidy to see through the window. Also, notice, we stole an SSD tray from the back and put it on the PSU cover.

The dust shield snapped right into place, and once the cover for the4 expansion slots is opened, the card fits without any force or jostling. The PSU at the bottom, slid right in to rest on the foam pads, and the holes lined right up for the screws.

Wire management is fairly easy to accomplish with all of the tie points offered in the tray. We did have to remove the HDD cage to fit the PSU we do, but it also gave us plenty of room to tuck all the loose wires into.

Stepping back, with the panels no securely mounted to the chassis, the Alpha, while cubic, does have a nice look to it. Even though the window is tinted, we can still see the parts inside, and even without lighting, you can see where all of the PC build money went.

Blue was the color which tended to show up best in the images, so we are showing it, but keep in mind there are plenty more color options. There are nineteen other colors to pick, and modes where colors cycle, pulse, flash rapidly, the list goes on and on.

Like we said, once you get the RGB LEDs set the way you like them, you can just attach the remote to the chassis via a magnet. This way the remote is never lost, should the urge strike you to play with the lights for a friend, or change it to match a second or third build inside of it, down the road.
