Sharkoon Intros 'Mask' PC Case

Sharkoon has announced a new enclosure with some very simple looks, as well as a very simple name – 'Mask.' The case is a mid-tower PC chassis that can house up to ATX size motherboards.

The case can also house up to two optical drives, one external 3.5" drive, as well as room for up to four 2.5" internal drives paired with three 3.5" drives. Graphics cards can be up to 325 mm in length, while CPU coolers can tower up to 170 mm before colliding with the side panel.

Front I/O connectivity is handled by a pair of USB 3.0 ports, a pair of USB 2.0 ports, and HD audio jacks. These are all hidden under two different flaps on top of the enclosure.

Cooling is achieved by three fans: one rear exhaust and two front intakes, all three 120 mm fans, and all three preinstalled.

    On topic,

    Thanks to Tom's, now I know there is another traditional looking, boxy PC case on the market. I'll sleep better tonight.

    Yes, Doge approved.

    Other than that, meh... Oversimplified is not good either.

    Some bland case with a poor ventilation design from an unknown manufacturer. I'm guessing this is just a thinly veiled paid advertisement posing as an article.

    Lol @ blind brand loyalty. I'd rather have the better case (at whatever my criteria are), regardless of the manufacturer.

    Flooding the market with advertising is not a guarantee of quality. Case in point: CoolerMaster - they're famous, yet mediocre at everything that can be benchmarked.

    3x120mm fans with positive pressure is not poor ventilation in any case, and Sharkoon fans have been getting great reviews for years now.

    I just stumbled over this article and was surprised by the amount of features at this low price point (~55 Euro). Wanted to chime in with some alternatives as this case borrows from others a lot.

    The interior layout reminds me of "BitFenix Ghost", which btw costs twice as much. The 2.5 cage can be removed for more clearance/airflow and it even comes with dust filters and 3 fans. The exterior reminds me of "Nanoxia Deep Silence 1", while featuring a dedicated 2.5 FDD mount behind the door with only 2 ODD slots instead of standard 3 slot midi setup, which is a bonus imho.

    Overall a very capable case with room for big coolers and long cards. Not sure about maintenance though (front panel). Looking at the weight i guess the build quality is pretty sturdy. If you think about the price of the fans alone, this case is a massive deal and i may get back to this if my budget gets tight.

    Not bad at all!
