Right side


The side panel feature very practical handles which makes it easy to move the case. In the top part of the case you can find handles to carry the case easily. Apart from that there are no notable features. The side panel itself has been metal from a metal sheet and offers sufficient stiffness. The handle is made from plastic and inside the case, attached to the chassis, there are reinforcements to ensure stability. Therefore you can also carry the case when it's fully loaded with hardware. Taking a closer look at the ground floor shows the hot swap cage and its connectors. There are two SATA ports as well as one molex power plug. In the back of the case there goes the power supply, which is not lying on the ground direclty. There is about two millimeter space between the ground and the power supply which allow the PSU to breathe appropriately. Another feature that is worth mentioning concerns cable management. There are lots of dedicated cable management loops. Basically you can attach each and every cable to the case using cable ties.

Was mir im Rahmen dieses Tests definitiv fehlt, sind Angaben dazu, welche Grafikkarten verbaut werden können.
Das ist bei normalen Midi Towern ja manchmal schon kritisch wegen der teilweise fest verbauten Festplattenkäfige.
Insofern wäre es für potentielle Käufer - gerade weil explizit darauf eingegangen wird, das richtig große Kühler verbaubar sind - schon interessant, wenn man erfahren würde, wie groß die Grafikkarten sein dürfen.
