Today we have a new case from Color Cases to play with.  They tout this as their own design and have gone and manufactured it for their site.  High expectations for this unit, we'll see how it fairs in our tests.

   Here are some specs from CC:

Steel with Plastic Face
Drive Bay: 5.25' Bays (exposed) x 4
3.5' Bays (exposed) x 1
3.5' Bays (hidden) x 2
Slot Bracket:
M/B Type: ATX, or Extended ATX or Pentium IV
I/O Bracket:
Standard ATX
Power Supply:


-ATX Form Factor Mid-Tower Case
-Universal ATX I/O Shield
-Electro magnetically Shielded
-Electromagnetic interference protection
-Fit any standard ATX or Pentium IV Power Supply
-Built-in extra two 80mm quiet Fans available
Port(s): Front USB ports
25 Lbs. (w/o power supply)
Dimension: 455 x 200 x 415mm (LxWxH) in mm

The immediate selling point of the case is the pre-cut 4 sectioned window on the side panel.  In total there are 8 small screws that hold the single X-Window in place with a spot in the middle for an 80mm fan.  In the accessories bag there are no fan screws so make sure you buy them beforehand.  There are additional fan spots inside the case, so the lack of fan screws is a bit of an inconvenience.

Upon closer inspection, two screws on the side panel holding the window in place was loose and missing as seen above.  A quick check in the plastic bag yielded no loose screw either.  To make do with what we had, the loose screw was tightened but it seemed it was already stripped. Again, no spare screws for this panel either.


Moving on to the front of the case, we notice the power/reset buttons are situated in a unique spot.  The power button is not oversized like many other cases and the reset button is small enough to poke with your fingers.  The LEDs are a bit too small for my taste, I prefer the 5mm over the 3mm.

The front panel is covered in a frosted plastic, with ColorCases printed on the top panel.  There is a larger frosted panel near the bottom that covers the two front intake fan spots.
