GMC Trinity, Continued
The design of the case is unique and features a mirrored stripe down the front door that opens to access the front bays. The door is very solid on this case. The Trinity offers 2 side mount USB ports on the side of the case, but no 1394 Firewire port. The case offers a unique sound selector function that allows you to select the output of the sound between different output configurations at the touch of a button.
One of the highlights of this case is the 90mm fan that is located in the lower corner of the side panel. This assists the case in airflow efficiency and works to remove more heat from the case. We touched on the troubles with the window earlier, but we really liked the gold trim around the window opening and this was a nice feature, as it really helps dress up the case.
The airflow in the case was good and the case is able to move a lot of air out of the case. We think the case could have used a few more vents in the front of the case for air intake, however.
A look a the side mounted ports for the Trinity as well as a close up of the case front. Notice the flash card reader at the top of the picture.
The Trinity features a flash card reader that can be connected to the computer via a USB connection. This adds significant value to the case, as well.
We really liked the Trinity and found the design to be unique. The drive selector is a great feature, with a lot of potential uses. Overall, this is a great case and one that could become a classic. While the window in our test case had a few problems, it appears that GMC has worked through these. If you don't want the sound proofing design offered by the Noblesse SE and prefer the window, the Trinity is the way to go.
