ADATA XPG Invader PC Case Review
Peter Donnell / 3 weeks ago
The XPG Invader comes in a choice of black or white. Can you guess which version we have? If you guessed white, give yourself a cookie. First impressions go a long way, and I have to say, it looks bloody fantastic. The tempered glass window really shows off the interior quite nicely and is going to look great for those who like to show off their hardware.
I love that you can see that little XPG logo on the side of the shroud too, a little detail, but it’s cool regardless.
Upon the top, there’s plenty of airflow and an external magnetic dust filter; all in matching white of course.
It’s hiding a few fan mounts, but it’ll provide a bit of passive airflow to shift heat from the rig too.
The front I/O has a pair of USB 3.0 ports, as well as the power controls and a lighting control too, which is nice. As with most modern PC cases, it also features a single audio jack with a 4-pole connection.
The front panel is pretty simple looking. However, I think it looks fantastic, especially in white. There’s a simple XPG logo at the bottom, which I rather like. If you’re worried about airflow, there’s a couple of large vents on the sides.
Right Side Panel
Rather than just a blank right panel, the XPG Invader has a stunning looking fan/radiator vent cut into it. There’s a dust filter on the inside too, ensuring you keep your rig free.
Speaking of dust filters, this is the front panel dust filter. It’s mounted magnetically too, so you can just pop it out in a few seconds, clean it, and clip it right back in; easy!
Around the Back
Around the back, it’s business as usual really. There’s a rear 120mm exhaust fan at the top and the PSU mount at the bottom.
What I do like is the attention to detail though. There are seven expansion slots, which has the same triangle pattern we saw on the right-side panel. Plus, they’re all reusable metal ones, not those nasty snap-off ones.
Finally, one the bottom we have two more dust filters. So that’s two in the bottom, one in the front, one on the right side, and one on the top. That’s a LOT of dust filters!
