Nanoxia CoolForce 2 Review
Up Close: Roof, Rear and Base
The roof of the case has what Nanoxia call the "Air Cover". it's essentially a removable plastic panel that converts the clean lines of the roof into something that offers better ventilation. The panel is secured by a catch at the rear and is easy to pop on and off. With the panel off we can see that the roof has slotted mounts for up to three 120mm or 140mm fans. It's also possible to get up to a 360mm radiator up here, but owing to the lack of off-set, 140mm based rads are a no go, which is a bit of a shame really.
The rear of the case is a pretty standard ATX affair, with a layout we've seen a million times before. Nanoxia have though allowed for four water cooling hoses to pass though, so if you want a case with features that were handy 15 years ago you're in luck. We should say that Nanoxia are not alone in persisting in offering us things we no longer need.
The case stands on four rubber capped chromed plastic feet, which Nanoxia claim are de-coupled from the case to prevent vibration. The base of the case has a large mesh fan filter that easily removable by sliding it to the rear.
