Huntkey's New Gaming Chassis Has a Handle

Huntkey announced Spider, a new gaming case that appears to be geared towards value-oriented gamers.

Inside the chassis you will find room for ATX motherboards, graphics cards up to 300 mm long, four 3.5-inch drive bays, two 2.5-inch drive bays, and three optical drive bays. It also looks like the case has a floppy drive. The case measures 400 x 180 x 412 mm, and is made of ABS plastic and steel. Front I/O consists of a USB 2.0 port, a USB 3.0 port, and the usual pair of HD audio jacks.

On top of the case sits a very clearly labeled carrying handle.

For cooling, the case can house one front 120 mm fan, one 92 mm rear exhaust fan, and two side-mounted 120 mm fans. Oddly enough, the specifications page makes no mention of a top-mounted fan. No fans are included.

There is no exact word on pricing, though given the feature set, it is clear that this is a value-oriented case, so make sure you don't overpay for it.

    But did they need to label it too?

    Why does "value-oriented" always seem to mean "built for a preteen! Now with 85% more cheap looking plastic! (parts sold separately, fans not included)". My old Antec 300 doesn't look that bad and I bet it was cheaper as well (purchased the 300 @ $35 and it included fans).

    Is the handle really the selling point here? With so much plastic the construction can't be that good, so you can move it like once or twice before it falls apart?

    Where have I seen this before? I don't suppose the Scout had a handle as well?

    They should fire the case designer(s).

    See, this is what's wrong with society, today. They need to label a handle as a "Handle" or no one will think it's a handle.

    Why does budget oriented mean that they spend all their time making it look hideous, rather than taking the time to work a bit more on the internal design. I mean, I don't know about other people, but when I'm looking at a case I'm not interested in the looks at all (though I will dismiss hideous cases flat out), but rather the internal layout. IMO a big case should fit at the very least two forward 140mm fans, and preferably another one or two at the top, I also don't give a crap about optical bays, so stop adding three of them as they all they do is limit cooling and eliminate their case from my decision.

    So no one noticed the top 5 1/4 bay wasn't properly seated before taking the picture...
