Moving back up top, just behind the I/O panel you have a small indented section for putting, stuff. There’s also a Mini-USB extension cable that runs up to this area, making it easy to charge or transfer files to phones or MP3 players etc.

At the back of the Tattoo is another grilled section for an top mounted exhaust fan. Again it features an easy-to-remove grill with a built in dust filter.

When removed you get easy access to the fan for cleaning. However, due to its non-fixed nature you can actually flip it over to change it to an intake fan if you so wish.

On the main side panel is the styling that gives that Tattoo its name. Due to this being the Fire version with a large side window, the art work is somewhat reduced, but it’s still tribal tattoo inspired. It looks pretty cool and actually having just a small area makes it look more unique and interesting.

The rear of the Tattoo is also bright red, but not garishly so; it’s a good choice of hue. This case has a base mounted PSU, and features a top 12cm exhaust fan with some water tubing holes just beneath.

Each PCI-Bracket features a clip mechanism to hold things in place, with a large PSU mounting slot underneath.

The underside of the case features a set of four “high profile” – meaning tall – plastic feet to make things sturdy while also allowing for air to be pulled under the case and up into the PSU, keeping its internals nice and cool.

    Great review I must say, very structured and thought out.

    I’m considering buying this for my new rig!
