Here's the part that scares me the
most. The expansion bay covers are twist off versions, which
means you'll need a pair of strong fingers or pliers to pry them
off. I used to work at a computer shop building/fixing PCs and
some of the cases that came through the shop had these twist offs.
I always had a box of bandages near me, constant cuts from this
Neat, its the fan duct from Dell
computers. Just kidding, its the CPU fan duct which sits over where
your CPU most likely will sit. One thing to remember, if your
CPU HSF fan is blowing into your heatsink, this duct brings the air
out through the back of the case. Make sure to reverse your
HSF fan if you want to use this duct. I guess Zeus knows about
gigantic heatsinks, just read the label they attached to the duct:
There is no intake fan included, heck, the
case itself doesn't have a place to put one:
Without a doubt, the best part of the case
is the bay cover!
That's my DVD/CDRW combo drive from
Samsung. I was quite surprised the button on the bay cover would
be flush against the button on the drive itself. A very nice
accessory which I hope other case companies may adopt.
There is a bit of differences in what the
case specs say, and what you receive. The case is not entirely
edge rounded, but only on the drive cage itself.
The other edges are not sharp, but they
aren't smooth either. If you rub hard enough, you will cut
Overall, the case looks nice with the plexi
and stealth bay covers. There are some quirks that hopefully the
next revision of model of this unit would fix. For $79, its a toss
up. Its either you like the color and other features, or you just
don't have time to hack away a case like this yourself. For case
mod beginners, this might be a good place to start getting your feet wet
without breaking the bank with modding tools.
