Spire has been around in the computer world for over 15+ years and have created some items that we all use. Whether it is power supplies, cases, or modding supplies, Spire seems to have something on the market to cater to our needs. This week I received the Spire Blackfin mid-tower case to test out.
- Durable lightweight metal
- Stylish & sophisticated design
- Front USB & SOUND connections
- 120mm Fan duct system on the side panel
- Full folded edge, full screen, radiation protected
- Easy installation, screw free side panel, one manual screw top panel
- Optimized internal space design for easy installation and highly-efficient airflow
The front of the case is out-lined in silver. The drive bays are finished with a smooth black finish, whereas the rest of the front panel has a textured finish. The case also comes with a DVD/CD-Rom drive cover so it doesn't matter if you have beige or some off-color optical drive, everything will look uniform.
The lower part of the front of the case has the headphone plugs and two external USB ports.
The side of the case comes with a handle to unlock the door at front of the case to remove the door panel. It also has an air vent that holds an 120mm fan.
A closer look at the air vent when it is closed shows the center silver button turns on the fan and open/closes the vent.
This time with the vent open. The clear ring glows blue when it is on and opened.
A look at the inside of the door.
The fan also has a duct mounted on it to draw air from the CPU heatsink and help remove the heat from the case.
The inside view of the lock on the case door has a plastic latch that holds it in place
Also on the inside of the case you can see a stationary latch that lines up with the doors.
On the bottom of the case is a printing of the basic instructions of where things go.
The case feet consist of tiny rubber nipples glued to the case.
