Vivo Offering Free Upgrade Kit For CASE-V08 Chassis

Seeking to get ahead of a few bad-news reviews, Vivo told Tom's Hardware that it's including a free front-panel spacer kit for owners of its CASE-V08 ATX mid-tower. A fix for the poor ventilation seen within the review of a competing sample of similar design, airflow is significantly improved by spacing the glass ¼” from the front panel frame.

Comprising longer mounting screws and a few spacers, photos of the upgrade kit will be available once the volume product has shipped. We’ll test our CASE-V08 sample both ways in a future review to let readers know what to expect. (This could be one of the rare times when a long review queue helps the company representing a given product.)

If you own a Vivo CASE-V08, you can contact the company's technical support page or send an email to for the free components, which are expected to ship in coming weeks.

    Didn't even know Vivo made cases. Looks pretty slick, though, cooling issues aside. Not a very unique design, but that's never really been their calling card anyways.
