Akasa Infiniti Zor Case

Conclusion

Conclusion
 
From the specification sheet, this case looked like an absolute steal. Out of the box, it also looks fairly impressive, with the modular drive bays, removable motherboard tray and water-cooling ready mountings.

However, once you get to installing the system and getting the case up and running, the story changes completely. The case is one of those products where you feel it was well designed, but then poorly implemented. The rattle of the side panel, easily bent motherboard tray and overheating components don’t fill us with excitement.
 
Using PriceGrabber, we found the cheapest price for the Akasa Infiniti Zor - Gamer Edition Case to be £76.07 including VAT from Tekheads.

The Good
+ Very well designed modular drive bays
+ Water-cooling ready (untested)

The mediocre
* Motherboard tray is difficult to install
* Front Connector removal is innovative, although flawed

The Poor
- Poor cable management capabilities
- Very poor cooling
- No hard disk vibration absorption
- Side panel rattles with movement

Nice review guys, and you're honest.

Not a good case unless you like your silicon cooked and your hard drives noisy.Quote
