Anidees AI Crystal Tempered Glass Case Review

Introduction and Technical Specification

Anidees AI Crystal Review

Introduction

As we said on the home page, Anidees are billing the new AI as "not just a case with a glass side panel" (actually they left out the second "a" but it was bugging us so we put it back in), the effect though, is much the same.  They are though kinda right, this isn't just a case with "A" glass side panels. it's a case with two glass side panels and a glass front pane for that matterl, and it has to be said, looks simply stunning.  So stunning in fact that we donned a pair of white cotton gloves before handling it so as not to soil it with our greasy fingerprints.  We also dug out the Polaroid filter for the camera, otherwise all you would be seeing would be reflections of the junk that accumulates behind the photography area.  So what do we have here then, well in simple terms its a mid size tower that offers a range of motherboard support as well as rather impressive water cooling options.  If first impressions count, then the AI has made a good one, but let's crack on and have a look at the all important Technical Specification

I did have a think about white, not sure it would work even with a light grey tint on the glass. The front deffo wouldnt work.Quote

Did the Anidees crew grab someone from Fractal?
The thing looks awesome and that 3x140 support is wonderful, but it does bear a bit of a resemblance...
Now to get some 90 degree adapters for 24 pin, 4/8 pin and USB 3.0 to allow that cable cover to really do it's job!Quote

Does look a lot like the Define S with some nice little additions. Still I do hope that this will be available in AUS.Quote
