Titan likes to be unique, and it’s very apparent in their product line-up. We are going to take a look at their Robela case, that’s far from being ordinary. Packed inside is a full fledged water cooling set-up, but also includes many of the features you look for in a regular case.
With all water cooling systems, you should always let the cycle run for at least 24 hours to test for leaks. Because of laziness, I let the Robela run it’s loop for 48 hours, and was pleased to see no leaks at all. Now we are good to go and start installing everything.
Once I found out that the Ultra X-Finity would not coincide with the door, I replaced it with the Coolmax CXI 400 and installation has officially begun. First up were the hard drives. I applied the included clips to each side and then situated it in the bottom right drive bays. I quickly found out that this is not the smart way to do things, because attaching the IDE/S-ATA cables could cause problems. It’s a very tight area, so I only installed my primary drive here. I installed my other two drives in the floppy drive bays, since I would not be using a floppy drive or anything else that needs to fit there.
I now installed the CD-Rom in the top drive bay, which was the only one without a metal guard. Once again, I found out this is not the smart way to do things, since the IDE cable would not be able to stretch from a hard drive all the way up to the top of the case. So I quickly moved that to the bottom bay.
