Time for my standing test. Thanks to the foot thick steel used on the case, I flexed before it did. I’m sure they could build houses out of these cases, and it’ll be fantastic for a LAN party, providing you are the worlds’ strongest man and can lift breeze-blocks with ease (say that fast).
The vibration mounts used on the fans make for a mulnaz experience and the loudest fan in the case was the power supply. Both of the fans move a reasonable amount of air but nothing that’s gonna break awards.
Surprisingly, even though none of the drive rails have any vibration reduction features on them; there is no hard disc noise or rumbling. This is probably due to the fact that the rails themselves are made of a reasonably soft plastic that absorbs the noise.
Also, as the case is made out of tank armour, the sounds waves have trouble actually getting out of the case which means that your computer will be quieter, even if you use the same fans as another case.
The front of the case looks pretty awesome once you power it up. The blue LED fan shines through the front slits – just like on the box picture – and make for a great looking case. Using the blue LED bar as you hard disc activity lamp looks equally cool, although the full effect is only really noticeable at night.
I doubt anyone would laugh at you if you had this case at a LAN event and it’ll probably turn heads.
