is a manufacturer of computer components that has been around for a while, and they have sent a large number of items to Bigbruin.com for review over the years. They are also the parent company of a line of higher performance components that they have decided to brand under a different name... Tuniq.
The Tuniq brand includes a variety of products, including the Tuniq Tower 120 CPU cooler
, which has received many great reviews and was a pioneer as one of the first big heatpipe coolers. This review will be focused on a chassis from Sunbeamtech's Tuniq series, the Tuniq 3 Mid Tower ATX case. I was looking for a new home for a Core 2 Duo system, and this case seemed to be a good fit.

The Sunbeamtech Tuniq 3 Mid Tower ATX case arrived in the cardboard box shown in the images below. The front of the box displays an overview of the case, which looks a bit dull except for some blue lights on the bottom and some vents on the side. The back of the box has many pictures that focus on the various features, each with some text explaining what is being shown. The most interesting item shown on the box is the 3D Core-Fan system, which will be discussed in more detail later.
