They say first impressions are important, and honestly, the XPG Starker makes a pretty great one. It’s not a particularly outlandish design, but I like that. I don’t want my case to look like a Transformer (well, not all the time). I want something smart, clean and stylish and the Starker delivers on that. There’s a tempered glass window down the side, with a bit of black trim around the edges to smarten things up.

The front panel looks great, with a couple of large cutaways at the sides, but otherwise, the ventilation takes up the full height on each side, so the airflow is going to be great while still maintaining a clean front panel design.

There’s a decent I/O panel on the top too, offering a pair of USB 3.0 ports, and the usual power controls. However, there’s also a small button for controlling the built-in RGB hardware.

The top panel is covered with a large magnetic dust filter, which will keep dust and debris out of your case.

Of course, just lift it off, and you’ll find room to mount 2 x 120mm or 2 x 140mm fans; that also includes radiators up to 280mm, obviously.

The right side panel is just a solid steel panel; clean and simple.

Around the back, there’s a fairly standard ATX layout, with the motherboard I/O, seven expansion slots, and the PSU mount in the bottom of the case.

What’s nice to see is that there’s additional ventilation near the top.

Further ventilation to the right of the expansion slots, and all of those covers are reusable metal ones too.

The fan is pre-installed, but there are elongated screw holes, allowing a good range of height adjustment.

On the underside of the case, there’s even more ventilation! Plus, a full-length clip-in dust filter here too. However, you will have to tip the case to clean this one, but that’s fine with me, it’s still a nice feature to have.
