Bgears b-Envi

Bgears

Introduction:

Are you in the market for a new computer case? If you're looking for something stylish and unique, while not lacking in features, you should consider the b-Envi, a compact, cube-shaped gaming computer case from Bgears. The b-Envi has two windows, one on each side of the case, or an option for those who find the windows unnecessary is the b-Envi-nw. This is a very attractive case with a unique feature many may not be aware even exists in the marketplace.

The extras included with the B-Envi case truely make a big difference. We like the addition of the card reader, blue LED fan, and SATA adaptor that we wil discuss on the next page. Additionally you can see that the Bgears even includes a 20 to 24 pin power adaptor cable which may come in handy to those with 20 pin motherboards. The other big plus are the touch sensitive buttons (Power/Reset/Lock) which are just plain really cool to use.
