Last week, we reviewed the Janus case from Logisys Computer. But what if that case is too much for you? What about a somewhat normal case that’s not beige? That’s where the Case-51 case comes in. It offers a standard case, with some flair, and for a good price. Let’s check to see how it made out in our review!
- Max. Motherboard size:12″x10″
- 4 open 5.25″ drive bays
- 2 open 3.5″ drive bays
- 5 hidden 3.5″ drive bays
- A total of 11 drive bays
- Built-in 2 front USB 2.0+Audio Output
- This case comes with a POWER LAB 450watts power supply
- Toolless Thumb Screws
There are some today who view todays pre-modded cases, like the Logisys Janus and the Ultra Wizard that we’ve reviewed, to have too many features, or to be overdone. Some like it simple, but not so simple, so as to date back to when everyone had a plain Jane Beige case.
So now that I said that, you are expecting to see a completely boring case! Well, the Case-51 is amazingly simple, yet very cool at the same time. Let’s jump right into the features of this case.
One thing about the case you will notice quickly, is that it’s quite light. The case comes in two colors, Black and Silver; I reviewed the Silver version. The paint color is pure matte Silver, and really looks good and clean. On the front of the case, you can see the large black guard, which helps to make this case look even more stealthy.
Opening that guard will allow you to access the (4) 5.25″ drive bays, as well as the (2) 3.5″ floppy drive bays. Also included here are the (2) front USB ports, as well as the audio ports.
