If you’ve ever seen either of this chassis’ predecessors then you’ll have a very good idea of what this case looks like; all-black, silver trim, grills for airflow and significantly lacking in much detail.

It’s advertised as a mid-sized tower, but it’s nearly as big as a full-size tower, standing at almost 2 feet tall.

Everything is made out of solid steel, down to the grills for every single fan. This helps to reduce noise since there’s no chance of the grills reverberating or letting the fan attached to them shake.

The I/O panel has everything you’d expect from any recent chassis currently on the market: USB2.0 support, SATA-II port (In case you do have a SATA-II external device), power/reset buttons, but it also has an external card reader: a feature not shared by many cases currently on the market. It’s hidden under an easily removed panel, but it’s there.

Included with the extraneous components is a VGA holder so that you can attach fans to your video card. Since I put a lot of pressure on my graphics card, this was a much appreciated addition.
