GMC X-7 Review

Introduction

GMC are a company known for innovative ideas and unique aesthetics – for instance the Bulldozer and Corona. Once again, the Korean company have created a rather unique looking enclosure, named the X-Station. This PC case, like most of GMC’s product range, seems to have a very bold appearance but does it live up to the standards set by their other cases? Only one way to find out.

Box and Bundle

The GMC X-Station arrives in a relatively standard size cardboard box. The front and rear of the box are exactly the same; they simply list the key features of the enclosure and showcase a large image of the case standing with all its lights beaming.

After opening the box up and removing the accessories from inside the GMC X-7, you will find the following:

  • User’s Manual
  • Accessories Box containing:
    • Quick User Manual (leaflet style)
    • Cable Ties
    • Cable Tie Mounts
    • Bios Speaker
    • Card Washers
    • Silver Motherboard Standoffs
    • Gold Fan Screws
    • Green, Pink and Black Assorted Screws

Enclosing the accessories inside a box is a good idea. You’ll be surprised by how many cases do not do this which sometimes results in bits getting lost.

The multi-coloured screws are certainly ‘different’, most cases simply contain screws in the bog-standard black or silver. That said, since the case is black, I’d be surprised if people used anything but the black ones.
