Exterior

Without a doubt, this is a gorgeous looking PC case. Sure, it’s a bit bland and clean looking with that solid panel on it, but that’s what I ordered, and it looks great!

The details are what make this case though, and the fit and finish of all the edges and corners really let you know it’s a quality product. Nothing rattles, everything feels slightly overbuilt and really well-engineered. There are two large air vents as well as airflow gapping around the main front panel surface. It’s a big case too, so overall there’s a lot more airflow here than you might think, and even more along that bottom edge too.

There’s a lot going on up top, with a full length radiator/fan mount. However, it has two covers on it as standard. There’s a ventilated one towards the rear, and a solid one for the rest.

They’re all magnetically removable, and there are ventilated version with filters included in the box, should you wish to actually open this bit up.

Just lift up the panel and drop in a new one, it’s that easy. Of course, they’re really well made, all lined with noise isolation materials, and have the magnetic locks.

As you can see, you could just pop the roof off for passive airflow, handy if it’s a really hot day in the office or something. It also means you can add a big radiator or more fans up here too if you really need to.

The main control panel is well equipped too. There’s a large power button, with a smaller reset button off to the right. You get audio jacks too. There are two USB 3.0 ports and a Type-C, which are all blacked out and stealthy. Finally, there’s a four speed fan control switch, with AUTO, 1, 2, and 3 speed settings.

Down the right-side panel, it’s really just the same as the left. Another thick panel with even more noise isolation materials on the interior.

Around the back, you can see there’s a lot of headroom above the motherboard, and the case has some ventilation here to prevent heat building up in the top or rear of the case.

There are two push-release buttons to remove the side panels; no thumbscrews required!

There’s a 120/140mm fan mount, with a 140mm fan pre-installed.

You get all the usual expansion slots for an ATX motherboard, but there are two additional slots mounted vertically; perfect for using a GPU riser cable!

The PSU is installed from the rear of the case, and you’ll need to remove this bracket to fit it into the case.
