The Antidote To Tedium: 11 Midi Tower Cases Bring Excitement to the Desktop

Illuminated Interior

A cold cathode (enclosed) ensures even more lighting effects, shown to advantage through the transparent side panel. When switched on, this light glimmers through the blue 5.25" front panels. But even without the lighting, the interior is a feast for the eyes. Foxconn obviously put a lot of thought into it.

The mainboard is mounted on a tray that is removed from the case in a flash. The mount for the hard drives is made of transparent acrylic plastic, which not only looks good but also insulates the drives from the rest of the case. A preinstalled 120mm system fan is also made of this material. Unfortunately, additional fans have to be bought at an extra charge, since they are not included in the package.
