15 Case Power Tower Round-Up

Gotcha: Two Minor Weaknesses

Despite our initial euphoria, we found two weaknesses, albeit very minor ones. When installing the hardware, we spent some time hunting for the power-button connector. The blue-and-white cable for the power-on button is labeled "reset," which has got to be a small error: there isn't a reset button to be found anywhere on the case. But who needs a power-on button, anyway? Most people leave their computers running all the time.

The second snag is the retaining screw of the speaker, the sole danger spot in the entire case. In its defense, however, we should add that this area is inaccessible and does not pose an immediate threat.

Where in the world is the power-on plug? It's missing!

This is the only screw that could cut you, but it's very hard to reach.

    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.
