Many of you may already be familiar with the case we have on the review block today. It is the Blue Dragon full tower from Directron, or more commonly seen as the Chieftec server models. The Blue Dragon is Directrons own full tower monster, lets take a look.
Some quick specs:
- Dimension: 18.75"(D) x 8.13"(W) x 25.63"(H)
- Drive: 6 x 5.25" external, 2 x 3.5" FDD external, 6 x 3.5" HDD internal
- Case fan: 3 x 8cm front case fan (optional), 2 x 8cm rear fan (optional)
- Removable drive cages
- Quick lock 5 1/4" bays
- Lockable front bezel and side panel
If you prize your possessions within the box, you may wish to keep this on lockdown. Provided with the screws are 4 keys that you can use to secure your computer. Might be useful at a LAN, but then again, if the other person has the same case, they also have the same key I believe. Best to keep an eye on it anyway.
The rear of the case has two 80mm fan exhaust holes, we'll get into that a little bit later. Also notice the power supply is not the common horizontal orientation, but a vertical. This cuts down the space near the rear if you need to put anything extra in there.
There's also another lock in the front of the case to prevent you from opening the front bezel. And with most full towers, it comes equipped with feet to prevent it from toppling over.
