from completed build Pascaline - Ultrawide on a Budget
Overall I’m satisfied with the case, but it is not without weakness.
Pros.: 1. It is made in Germany and it is built like a tank, with noticeably ticker steel than on competing products. 2. Inside of the case is fully lined whit very highly density sound dampening material. No light foam that you find in a lot of other silenced cases. All of this makes case very heavy. 3. It also has a lot of drive cages (5 x 3.25 or 2.5 and 3 x 2.5) and three 5.25 inch bays. 4. In Europe it is very good value but looks like prices are a bit higher in US. Probably because of the transport costs, this thing really weights a ton.
Cons.: 1. Design is somewhat dated. Case is quite large for mid ATX. It is longer and taller but narrower than something like Fractal Design Define R5 or S. Those dimensions are more suitable for installing radiators. Personally I’m in air cooling camp so that is less of a concern. 2. Other old-fashion oddity are rubberized holes for external water cooling, which I really don’t see any use at all these days. 3. Side panels are very heavy because sound dampening material and difficult to take on and off. 4. Cage for 2.5'' drives and one of the 3.5'' cages can be removed, but other 3.5'' cage and 5.25'' drive bays are riveted, so you can’t free up space in the front for 240 mm front radiator. Those can be mounted in top, but you will loose some of the sound dampening. 5. Power on switch is way too bright ant it pulsate when is's in sleep mode, which is annoying if you have bed in the same room as PC. 6. Front fans are difficult to reach. 7. The most annoying thing for me is that fans have 3-pin connector. Case is comes with all the necessary cables for plugging the fans directly to the PSU and using two little sliders behind the front panel to control them manually, but I think that most people, who buy heavily silenced case would like to use headers on motherboard to plug in the fans and control them in UEFI or use motherboard utility. Fans should be 4-pin. 8. Also, no tampered glass, if you are in those sorts of things. I couldn’t care less.
Overall this is 70's Mercedes of cases. Affordable, well built and quiet, but probably not what most people want these days.
