Jonsbo QT01 Quiet Mid-Tower Case Review

Complete System

There really are no surprises here, it was a pretty straightforward build from start to finish. The case is a little old school, but since I’m a little old school too, it all felt familiar to me. What did amuse me was that I had to install the motherboard standoffs, haven’t had to do that on a case for a good few years.


Overall though, it’s really neat and tidy in here. It’s strange seeing a case without a PSU shroud, but as you can see, the space for cable management is doing its job just fine. Cable runs are kept short and tidy throughout.

There’s room for a fan in the bottom of the case, albeit, I can’t see much need for it myself and you risk getting cables jammed into it anyway.

GPU clearance is decent, and a GTX 1080 Ti fit with ease. Some of the monster gaming GPUs of today may suffer though, so measure twice before you order. That’s mostly due to the HDD bays being located in the front of the space, the trade-off being it has more bays than many modern gaming cases.

Amusingly, if you have a motherboard with the GPU slot as the first (many have it one space down), and the GPU isn’t a triple-slot card, the GPU support bars don’t touch the card.

Cooling clearance is extremely good, with plenty of airflow from the two front fans, easily channelled up through the case, and a good quality exhaust fan at the back. Large CPU air coolers will fit easily enough too.

Overall, it’s just a nice clean build, with huge amounts of space for optical drives, SSDs and HDDs. While it may not be ideal for a big gaming PC, for a workstation or server style build, it’s ideal.

With all the panels back in place, it’s bold, stylish and overall, quiet.

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
