DeepCool's Pangu SW-RD Comes With Remotely Controlled LEDs

DeepCool has built a new variant of its Pangu case, adding a side window and LED lighting. Meet the Pangu SW-RD.

The Pangu itself is fairly ordinary, offering room for ATX motherboards, graphics cards up to 310 mm long, CPU coolers up to 165 mm tall, six 2.5" or 3.5" hard drives, and two optical drives. Included with the case is a single 120 mm fan, although it has room for two additional front 120 mm fans, two top 120 mm fans, and a bottom 120 mm fan. Two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, and HD audio jacks handle front I/O connectivity.

The Pangu SW-RD comes in black with red accents. The left side panel comes with a side window, through which you'll be able to see the included LED lighting. It consists of two strips that you can adjust with the included remote control. The strips are powered internally by a single 4-pin Molex connector.

The standard Pangu carries an MSRP price of $69.99, while the Pangu SW-RD bumps that up by $30 to $99.99.

    This is just a little ridiculous. I'm buying a computer. Why would I want to sit there and fiddle with physical lighting on the box? I mean, I can see wanting to put a light in, but who is going to want to sit there and not USE there computer and mess with the colors?

    Taking a closer look at this case on the manufacturers site it bares resemblance to the CM 690 II Advanced ( )with some cosmetic changes and slightly different internals like the cable routing cutouts, and the water cooling holes around back. This is a better design though it is smaller (LxWxH)498*205*477mm compared to (LxWxH) 528.8 x 214.5 x 496mm on the CM, the screws for PCI slots are easier to access, dust filters are easier to get to. Not a fan of tiny reset buttons, they can be a pain to push for those with fat fingers (ink pens will work to press them though). I do like the look of the case, nice clean lines (doesn't look like a transformer), the ability to change the light coloring is a nice touch.
