With the boom of case modding, more and more companies are opening up in this market. They bring to the plate the idea of providing the perfect case mod to the masses. The mod that will awe every person that lays their eyes on it. Often times, this is hard to do as there isn't a 'perfect' mod that will fit every person. One person's love is another person's hate.
Xoxide Modifications gave us a holler a few weeks back letting us here at GT know that they were getting some complete mods out. Of course, we're always interested in new and improved mod ideas, we wanted to take a look at what they offer. So they sent us a Polaris Iceforge:
Now this case looks oddly familiar! We actually reviewed this unit under a different name, the Super Power Zephyr. Now the Zephyr doesn't look like this one, but with a switch of the front bezel, and you'll get this Polaris case. Anyway, we're not look at the stock values of this case, more on how the case has been modified. Read through the Zephyr review if you need some basic background information on the unit. One thing to notice, is that they took off the rear plastic bezel. Other than that, the case is nearly identical.
Here are some basic advantages of this case:
- Dual 120mm high output Dynatron fans
- On/Off switch with LED for the dual fans
- Option of adding different Power Supplies to the case
The dual fans are on a switched circuit, which allows you to turn the fans on or off. Right above the rocker switch is an LED which turns on red while the fans are on, and off when it isn't. Pretty straight forward.
There's a smudge above the rocker switch in our sample. We just used a little elbow grease and some Goo Gone and it went away. At least these weren't serious scratches! : )
