PC Power and Cooling is probably better known for their power supplies, but
today we'll take a look at their full tower case. It's solid steel and is a
monster. Let me start first by saying that when I first saw this case on Maximum
PC I thought, "Wow, that thing is huge and looks very sturdy. It definitely looked
like you could do a lot with the case." Then when I actually received the case it
was exactly how I expected it to be.
My first impression was that this that you could do a lot of modding to the
case and that it could hold a number of things inside of it. It was very roomy
and had potential to hold a water system. The box that it came in was absolutely
humongous as well, which no doubt prevented any dents or scratches while being
shipped. There are no really sharp edges, inside or out. The case had no visible imperfections at all in the paint or
construction, it is very solid. I mean like a rock. It definitely was
made for a power user or someone who needs a lot of space. This case is heavy
Too start off as I have stated before the case was very large. Just looking
at the specs you can already tell that it has to be pretty big to have 10 drive
bays. There are 7 PCI slots as well which should be enough for any user really.
I don't have even close to that many cards. There are little slots towards the
front of the case which show that this design supports full length cards as
well. There are two (2) 80mm fans in the front too that use 4 pin connectors for
course the case already came with an internal speaker and connections for the
Speaker, hard drive light, Power button, the reset button, and the power light.
The front Bezel can be totally detached from the case as well. When I took the
front bezel off I noticed that there are filters covering the front fans which
is a nice option to have. This will obviously keep out a lot of dust which is
nightmare for some of us. They are foam and they seem very easy to clean.
