15 Case Power Tower Round-Up

Ingenious Innards

The side panels are attached by only one screw with a central lock. You have to remove the thumb screw before you can pull out the latch by about half an inch. Then you can remove the lid. The layout of the motherboard, power supply and hard drives is entirely unlike that of conventional cases. Nothing in it so much as resembles what we've seen in other midi towers. In the PC-V1000, the power supply and drives are installed at the bottom, the motherboard on top. It takes a little getting used to, but it's still brilliant: one glance at the 120 mm fans showed us that both are isolated from the case with rubber pegs.

One look inside reveals the innovative hardware layout.

The central locking system lets you remove the side panels with one thumb screw on either side.

    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.
