This case is worth every penny. Solid construction and well layed out. Makes me wonder why I've been spending the same money on branded tower cases that are always filled with plastic. Will be using xcase going forward.
As this is the first review I'll try and make this nice and detailed for other people deciding to buy. So my criteria was a rack mount case to protect my computer out on the road but also look kind of nice when in my production space. A lot of the rack mount cases are pretty **** so I was happy to find some decent looking ones on this website. I often work in high dust environments, so the dust filters that this case has were essential, and they're already proving their worth a month in. I opened up the case to take the photos and there was no dust inside, but I vacuum the inlets every weekend there's always a lot of dust on the outside! I didn't want a super deep case for portability but this case has the perfect balance of space inside for the depth. It also features two 120mm fans, I wanted a case with a wall of three, but actually the two do a good job of keeping it cool. I replaced the fan's it came with for a couple of Ventilateur de boitier Be Quiet Silent Wings 3 fans, just to keep the noise down while giving me enough cooling when I need it. I haven't fitted any exhaust fans, there is space for two 60mm fans on the back but I reckoned the CPU cooler fans would do the job just fine. Some other cases have vents for the PSU at the side, sadly this case doesn't have this, but as I say, it all stays cool fine, and it's quite nice just having a simple air flow of in through the front and out of the back. I have a big graphics card too but there's plenty of space for that. The case is strong, I haven't included the photo, but I did stand on the case and it doesn't bow at all thanks to the middle support bar. If you're changing HDDs lots... this isn't the case for you, there's loads and loads of space for them, but you basically have to screw into the top of the hard drive, there's no nice slotting in. This works fine for me but it's worth baring in mind. The only two slight bug bares I have with the case are: having to take the top off to get the dust filters out, rather than being able to directly access from the front, and only one USB on the front is frustrating, I wish it was two! I had a slight issue with the cabling to the blue light strip when the case arrived, but Xcase were extremely good in helping with the issue, I highly recommend them to buy from! All in all, I'm so happy with this case, I would buy another straight away when I need another build.
