This case is huge. The amount of internal room is remarkably impressive. In addition to the four fans that are included, you can increase the total number to 7. Not to mention the dual radiator support. A huge relief to anyone who has been paying attention to the size of video cards in the past two years, is that the case supports greater than 350mm length cards. When you consider the space necessities for some of these features alone the 11kg weight comes as no surprise.

Out of box

The box is very straightforward, you can see some stock photography of the three colors available. As far as the interior packaging nothing seems out of the ordinary, standard foam blocks and plastic bag. there is also protective film covering all the plastic exterior. I cant wait to see what this case has in store.

  1. How is the white case lit up, is that a special edition, the black version doesn’t seem as bright. I think a feature like that should be highlighted.
