If you're looking to build a new gaming rig or upgrade your existing machine, you need a high quality case that includes all the latest connectivity features and has enough room for future expansion. In short, you need this ATX Mid-Tower Case from Monoprice!
This case is designed to give maximum cooling and provide maximum space for high-quality gaming components. It is water-cooling ready with four rubber aperture ports on the back for routing water cooling pipes. For ordinary cooling needs it comes with five 120mm cooling fans pre-installed, two on the top, two in the front, and one in upper rear. The front and top fans feature red LED lighting, which can be turned on and off using a separate LED switch on the top control panel.
The fans are divided into three groups, each of which is controlled by a switch that allows them to be turned off or set to low or high speed operation. An additional 120mm cooling fan (not included) can be installed in the bottom of the case, in front of the power supply mount. Removable dust filters are included for the two front fans, for the optional bottom fan location, and at the rear of the case floor for the power supply's internal fan. A spare set of dust filters for the front fans is included.
The case is compatible with ATX and Micro ATX motherboards with up to eight expansion slots. It uses an ATX 12V form factor power supply mounted in the bottom of the case (power supply not included). It is constructed of heavy-duty 0.8mm steel and measures 20.1" x 9.1" x 20.7" (510 x 232 x 526 mm) (LWH). It has three externally accessible 5.25" drive bays and eight internal 3.5" drive bays, which can also accommodate 2.5" drives.
The 5.25" drive bays feature two large thumbscrews, so you can install optical drives without using screws or tools. The internal drive bays use plastic mounting trays, which are designed to mount a 3.5" internal drive without requiring screws or tools of any kind. Four small buttons on the inside of the tray mate with the screw holes to provide a secure mount for a 3.5" drive.
The trays can also accommodate 2.5" drives, but you need to use the included mounting screws to affix the drive to the bottom of the tray. The trays are also designed to allow mounting of 80mm and 90mm cooling fans for direct cooling of individual drives or to provide additional drive bay cooling.
Internally the case provides 11.8" (300mm) of VGA clearance. If the middle drive bay is removed the VGA clearance increases to 16.9" (430mm), enough to mount even the largest video cards. Unlike most cases with an unfinished, silver interior, the inside of this case is painted black, which provides better contrast for internal LED lighting.
The removable left side panel features a large, transparent window, which allows the components and internal lighting to be seen. The top mounted control panel features the LED, power, and reset switches. Additionally it includes two USB 2.0, two USB 3.0 ports, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a 3.5mm microphone jack, and a card reader that is compatible with full sized SD, MMC, and Memory Stick cards.
All of the included screws feature a black finish so that they blend into the case when installed. In addition to the mounting screws, the case comes with anti-vibration rubber rings, a motherboard speaker, hook-and-loop cable ties, wire cable ties, and a support bracket for extended length video cards.
