15 Case Power Tower Round-Up


  • Plenty of room for 80 mm system fans
  • Sturdy case
  • Sturdy front doors, 180 degree hinge, lockable
  • HDD carriage rotated by 90 degrees
  • Room for PCI long cards
  • All drives have rails with vibration absorption


  • Weight
  • Sharp edges
  • Breaking points create high risk of injury

The second front door hides an 80 mm fan with a dust filter that draws fresh air into the case interior.

Castek's C1020 case failed our cucumber test miserably. None of the other cases has as many sharp edges and corners as this one. In other words, exercise caution when installing the hardware and even opening the case.

    I find it admirable that an article so old is still kept alive. Recently acquired one of this cases in excellent shape at a garage sale and wanted to know more about it.

    Thanks to this article and the great dedication of this website I have been educated. Kudos to you all.
