Tecware’s new Forge M2 is a great looking case from the moment you take it out of the box. It’s fairly compact, lending to its micro-ATX design, which also means it’s reasonably light too. As you can see, there’s a large 4mm thick tempered glass window on the left side, which uses a magnetic clasp, giving it a very clean look overall.

The front panel looks fantastic, with a huge mesh cover design ensuring that airflow is pretty much unimpeded. Moving that air, you’ll find a pair of large RGB fans lurking behind the panel, so really, cooling should not be an issue.

The right side panel is pretty standard, with just a solid metal panel that’s held in place by a pair of thumbscrews at the rear. Nothing fancy, but it’s neat and tidy enough.

Upon the top, you’ll find a pair of 120mm fan mounts, with an exposed mesh design allowing for passive heat exhaust even if you’re not using the mounts. Towards the front of the case, you’ll find the main power controls, a pair of USB 3.0 ports, and the audio jacks. Again, pretty standard stuff, but there’s nothing wrong with that!

Around the back, you’ll find a third fan, mounted as the exhaust. It has slightly elongated mounts too, allowing for some height adjustment of the fan, which can greatly improve AIO compatibility.

There are four expansion slots, as you would expect from an mATX case. There’s a small bracket to the right, which will allow you a little extra wiggle room when installing larger expansion cards.

The PSU mount is located at the bottom and supports regular or inverted mounting.

However, pointing the PSU fan down makes the most sense, as there’s a built-in mesh dust filter towards the rear. There are also some screw holes towards the front for mounting some additional storage on the interior base of the case.
