This case is undoubtedly a great performer. If we remove aesthetics from the equation there is no getting away from the impressive idle and load temperatures which were derived from the tests. However, what makes this case such a great performer, may also put traditionalists off. If you have a high specification PC which generates alot of heat and you like your cases well lit, look no further, El Diablo will not dissappoint.
However, if you are a traditionalist who dislikes cases of this ilk then you're missing out on the opportunity of owning what is probably one of the best air-cooled cases around.
Looking at the price, the case is available for around £75. When one considers some of the features and cooling potential on tap I think that's great value for money.
