We're off on another case reviewing journey.
This time we have a sample case from Super
Power, a 12 year veteran in the PC chassis market.
Established back in '89, Super Power has evolved to becoming a
leading manufacturer in the case and power supply business.
Teaming up with the big names like Intel and AMD to provide a solid
line of products to support everyone's needs.
Today we will be taking a look at their Zephyr
case, model #201. Weighing in at about 30 pounds, it isn't too
heavy at all to carry around. There are a few different models
in the Zephyr line, the 201 comes in at the mid-tower category.
Here are a few dimensions and specs to
start off with:
9.70"W X 17.00"H X 19.50" L
External Bays: 5.25" x 4, 3.5" x 2
Internal Bays: 3.5" x 1
1 X 80mm Fans installed (2 total possible)
AT/ATX/Extended ATX Motherboards supported
Standard 250W PSU, optional 300W AMD Approved PSU (P4 available
30lbs in weight
The front bezel contains the normal large power up
button along with the smaller reset. Two LEDS are also present
to display power on and hard drive activity. I found the power
button to be very easy to press, hardly ever getting stuck. The
reset button is a little small, so if you have larger fingers you may
need the aid of a pencil : )
The back of the case is a little
different than what most tweakers and case modders may be accustom
to. There is a piece of plastic covering most of the back
area. Exposing only the PCI/ISA slots, I/O panel, and the power
supply. For the case modders, you'll probably want to chop away
at the plastic covering that 80mm rear exhaust fan. You may also
want to do the same for the exhaust hole for the power supply.
