-- Zeus Silver Mid-Tower ATX Case
-- Price: ~ $79.99 USD
-- 04.14.2002
-- By: GideonX
-- Page: 1 2 3

   We get in contact with a lot of cases here at GT, and each one is individual and different.  Well, almost all are different.  Nick from CrazyPC sent over a Zeus mid tower for us to take a look at.  I have never heard of Zeus, so this was something new to me.  He mentioned it was a steel case with some extra goodies not seen usually on common cases.

   I guess it is a bit different in that it already has a side window installed.  I've seen other manufacturers get into this pre-modded fad, which is fine by me.  Not everyone has the tools or hands to do it.  So it has a side window, seen it done before so that wasn't too shocking.  Let's see what the spec sheet on this says from CrazyPC:

  • Motherboard Type: ATX, Extended ATX, Pentium IV or AMD 
  • Construction: Coating Heavy Duty Steel Cooling 
  • Fans: Comes with 1 x 80mm cooling fan in CPU Duct, optional 80mm blow hold fan, and front fan. 
  • Mounting Kits: Included 
  • Hard Drive & Power LEDS: Included 
  • Total Bays: 11 
  • External Bays Available: 4 x 5.25"; 1 x 3.5" 
  • Internal Bays Available: 6 x 3.5"  
  • Actual Dimension (L x W x H): 18.5" x 8" x 17.5" 
  • Weight: 20LBS with No Power Supply

   Not too bad, except for the absence of a power supply.  Should not pose a problem, PSUs are widely available, and you can even add it into your order for this case for a little bit extra.

   Everyone can make and install a window kit, but not all are created equal.  Notice in the vents, that the plexi protrudes a bit too far.  It isn't too noticeable from afar, but when you're closer and a nit picker, it jumps out at you.

   The side panels are held together with thumb screws which makes it easy to get inside the unit.  Even though that is true, the side panel was a bit hard to put back together.  I pushed it into the notches and it would fall out by itself.  You'll need to hold it there while you screw in the panel with the screws.
