Tecware Forge L High-Airflow E-ATX Case Review
Peter Donnell / 1 month ago
While Tecware may still be a relatively (or completely) new name to our readers, they’ve been making waves in the market for some time now. It’s been just over a year since we first featured them on eTeknix, with the Tecware Phantom TKL Mechanical Keyboard Review. We’ve had plenty more reviews since too, and it was only in January that I tested the first PC case for them, the Nexus Evo Mid-Tower. So far, I’ve loved what I have seen, but can they keep that combo going with their latest effort? Today, I’ll be taking a look at the Tecware Forge L, an E-ATX Mid-Tower that comes in at a little under £100, so it should be something pretty special!
Tecware Forge L
The Forge L doesn’t appear to be reinventing the PC case here, but it’s certainly ticking all the right boxes for the current PC gaming case market. It has a proper high air-flow design, and three 140mm fans upfront to make the most of that, with a 120mm in the rear to exhaust heat. The fans feature ARGB and PWM, and it’s all synced up to their built-in hub for easy control and pairing. You get tempered glass, a PSU shroud, stealth storage mounts, cable routing, dust filters and liquid cooling support. As I said, nothing innovative, but it’s still everything we want, so I can’t complain.
- Airflow Focused: Full-mesh front panel with pre-installed 3 x 14cm PWM fans in the front for maximum air intake.
- ARGB & PWM, Sync Multiple Devices: Pre-installed with 4 x OMNI fans that are ARGB and PWM sync compatible (800-1800 RPM), connected to a Universal controller that allows you to sync across multiple ARGB devices.
- Seamless Display: Tempered glass side panel slides in place and is secured by thumbscrews at the back, instead of on the glass surface.
What Tecware Had to Say
“Forge L is optimized for superior airflow performance through its full-mesh polygonal-shaped front panel and pre-installed with 3 x 14cm PWM fans in front and 1 x 12cm in the rear. Side glass panel is secured via a slide-in mechanism that provides a seamless display of your system. Fans are connected to a hub that is sync compatible and allows connection of up to 8 ARGB devices.” – Tecware
