A+ Case Monolize ATX Full Tower Case

Test Results

Test Results

Here's what happened up against a Silverstone TJ09S with only stock fans left in:


The only place that the Monolize let itself down was in CPU temperature where it trailed the Silverstone by some distance. I have a feeling this is due to the non-standard side-through air passage in the Monolize. The rest of the temperature scores show a pretty competitive cooling solution from the Monolize case.

If you're looking to get this case and want a cool CPU I would suggest adding a front and rear fan for better airflow as that is what the ATX standard intended.

Still overall a pretty decent performance from the Monolize.

Meh, not a case for me. Not on the external looks either.

But I`m over 35, so I have an excuse.

In all seriousness tho, the internals of the case closely resemble the Thermaltake XaserII I have laying empty next to me. The lower drive area has been rotated and rejigged, but even looking at the front - it has the same pinching insertion things u stick to u`r devices. (the XaserII comes with a temp and fan control that fits into the top 5.25 bay, which I removed cos I never got it working >.< )

Those pci blank plate things are a pita without the top piece thing, good to see the inclusion of that to the spec.

Looks like a copy to me. Pretty darn heavy solid metally case ?Quote
