A+ Case El Diablo ATX Case

Appearance - II

Appearance - night-time

Well, here are the night-time shots. I can honestly say that I've never owned or tested such a well lit PC case before. Some of you out there may look at the images and think "no....too much", whereas those of you who like all things bright and 'blue-tiful' may already be considering a purchase. I'm not a huge fan of in-your-face cases but this one somehow appealed, the lighting seemed to be bang on in terms of it matching the case's styling. I'll leave you to draw your own conclusions...

A shot of the front intake, looks pretty impressive...

El Diablo - Intake Fan Lit

The intensity of the lighting can be clearly seen here. Who needs domestic lighting when you've got a case which looks so good with the lights off!

El Diablo - Lighting

The lighting is simply phenomenal, if PC cases could be categorised on the basis of looks I'd say this case falls into the 'futuristic doorman' category!

This case may look good but let's find out what the internal layout is like on the next page...

If you like your case to have a presence, take a look here because this case has it in spades!

What a stellar effort on your first review mate. You covered all of the main features/cons and provided good images to reinforce them. Well done ...keep up the great work.

The case actually looks interesting, and those larger fans seem to keep things well cooled. I'm a sucker for an aluminium case, but the steel used here is reflected in the price.

Thanks for the feedback Peevles.

For the price the case has plenty to offer in terms of cooling features.

My current short list for buying a case is either the el diablo or the NZXT blackline in blue. Any preferences people?

Oh, and im afraid you didnt note that the door is on the left, major irritation, and by the looks, only open 90 degrees.

Lo matey...hope you enjoyed reading the review

Yes, the door opens up to 180 degrees...I think the image which depicts the case with the door open shows that the hinge is on the left-hand side...

Tough decision tbh as I've not seen a NZXT case in the flesh....I hope the review helps you to make your mind up either way.
