Raidmax to Release Seiran Gaming Case

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 18 comments

Raidmax will be releasing the new Seiran series mid-tower case in mid-November.

The Raidmax Seiran is set to offer "tool-less installation, simple cable management, plus great expandability" in white, red or black. The case measures 18.9 (L) X 7.3 (W) X 18.9 (H) inches, and has a front panel with a 2-channel fan controller, USB 3.0 (x 1), USB 2.0 (x 2), audio ports, and LED light adjuster. It supports nine 5.25-inch bays (tool-free mounting system) with removed meshed bay covers for the possibility of nine external drive bays. The case has a space that's convenient for gripping, making it easy to transport or move. 

Cooling is provided by two 120mm fans (one with LEDs in front and one without lighting at the back) and an optional side window fan (120mm or 180mm fan). There is support for water cooling through three back panel tube outlets. It has a bottom mounted PSU with a removal dust filter, for ease of cleaning.

    it's not that bad, but... they really need to stop dilly dallying around with USB 3.0 and just replace the "2.0" ports. Oh and start using the internal headers... enough of this out the back b.s.

    It's not that ugly. It might be a retro design but some people love these designs. To each his own I guess. Also, the pricing is not that bad too.

    I don't know about you guys, but I'm digging the new design. I like cases that are retro, functional and have a bold colour scheme. The Seiran fits all 3.

    And as youseff says, to each to his own. To me, these cases look more attractive to me than the minimalistic Lian-li cases. And at this price, it's a steal.

    Can't see this selling a whole lot, especially with harddrive prices going up because of the floods.

    I actually like the look of the black model, but 7.3" strikes me as very narrow. It seems like it would be very restrictive as far as mounting large tower style air coolers, no? Especially with a side fan.

    Why only 7 slots?

    asside from the fancy lights, and tool-less aspect, this is basically my $40 case I bought last year... and mine looks better :p

    not bad for a mid tower, but it is narrow. Make a full tower version, and maybe id think about it. Companies need to just start putting what people want in the cases, instead of what they think they can fit. Thats their problem.

    Anyone else notice that it looks like Cooler Master's HAF series of cases?

    Yes.It's just WAY to similar in appearance to be a Raidmax original design.

    They are starting to all look the same. No originality.

    Needs a top blow hole and a faceplate for the control panel. OTOH, it does not look as much like it is made out of LEGOs like HAF cases do. I really, really like that all of the slots are 5.25 from top to bottom with sleds for 3.5 hd (didn't see any for ext card readers though). I hope the front fan can be moved up or down and would prefer either an acrylic or solid side panel (mesh can get noisy). If it isn't made with raidmax's typical beer can thickness I might even give it a try...

    Simple is the best. Antec 300 or 900 all the way.

    It actually looks much better in "person" than in photos - some extra photos in this review:
