Time for my standing test. The case featured a bit of flexing with my loafers on it, and scored a 1 out of 3. Not a bad score, but for a gamers case that is likely to be shown off at LAN events I would have liked more. Unfortunately as a result of this ‘test’ the case down has a slight dent in the top.
Once the Hush was turned on, the noise deadening panels do their trick and absorb the sound of the X1950 PRO humming away and stops any whiny fan noise getting to you. It doesn’t stop all the sound, but numbs the high pitched noise to a much more comfortable octave.
The two fans that are included with the case are the main sources of noise and you can hear the fan vibrations being passed onto the case. This is a shame as another four grommets on each fan would stop this from happening. They aren’t loud in their own right and manage to pump a reasonable quantity of air, and the front fan is in a position to keep your HDD’s cool too. As the front grill is directly in front of the fan, the blue LED’s shine out and compliment the front LED strip and power LED which also glow blue.
Try this case at night and you’ll be happy.
