A+ Case Monolize ATX Full Tower Case
Before I move on to the installation lets see what I put into the case.
CPU: Intel Core2Duo E6700 @ 3.33Ghz
Motherboard: XFX 650i Ultra
GFX Card: Sapphire X1600Pro with Arctic Cooling Accelero X2
RAM: 2gb Mushkin XP2-6400 4-4-4-12
HDD: OS - 160gb Hitachi Deskstar SATA II
Power: Zippy 500w
Cooling: Scythe Infinity
Idle temperatures were taken after 30 minutes of "rest" time on the PC.
Load temperature for the CPU was Dual [email protected] after 30 minutes.
Load Temperatures on the GPU were taken after 30 minutes of RTHDRIBL.
This should be a nice test of the cases thermal properties.
Installation was a simple and pretty quick process. I have performed a small amount of cable tidying but in fairness the case does a lot for you with a nice range of cubby-holes in which to route and hide those ugly spare cables. Here's the result:
Minor gripes aside the case was incredibly easy to install into and the features like the drive bar clips and the PCI slot clip, as well as the ample cable-routing options made it a pleasure to work in. I also have to say that there was not one sharp surface or edge in the case and I was pleasently surprised that my fingers didn't have the usual plethora of cuts that you usually get from cheaper cases.
