Tuniq 2 ATX Case
July 19, 2006

The Basics (continued):

The first thing that I noticed was the fan duct. This should provide good airflow as well as a place for hot air to be funneled out of your case.


You can do two modifications to the air duct, if necessary. The first is to remove the circular funnel if it interferes with your CPU heatsink. The other is to remove a panel under the 120mm fan (again, perhaps if it interferes with your system). In the second picture here, you can see the additional 120mm fan which would reside above your video card and several of your PCI expansion slots. Depending on the orientation of the fan, you can have it blowing air onto the devices or pulling the hot air away. This is the only included LED fan, this has four LEDs in the corner. While it does not have the brightest LEDs I did find that this fan looks nicer than many others I have used.

Here is the bottom of the case, usually the location where the expansion cards reside. However, since this case is upside down, the power supply resides here. In the second picture you can see the location to mount your hard drives. As you will see in the installed view, hard drives need to be installed with the cables facing out. There is room for four hard drives, and to install them you need to remove the air duct and have access to the bottom of the case. The hard drives slid in without any problems.

On most cases the cables hang loose and tend to get mixed together. The Tuniq 2 has the cables secured behind some clips on the chassis. In the first picture you can see the cables for the USB/Headphone/Mic/1394 ports. In the second picture you can see they have done the same for the other motherboard connections.

Turning to the rear of the case you can see the tool-less expansion slots. This is almost the only aspect of this case that is tool-less. The slot at the very top is a bit of a concern, because if you have a full height card it might be a little difficult to put it in there. Installing a USB bracket or half-height LAN card was easy. In the second picture you can see the front 120mm intake fan. Nothing fancy, it's a black case fan rated at 1,000 RPM. I have used these fans before and while 1,000 RPM sounds slow, they push a good amount of air. Using a fan controller, you can push them to 1,300 RPM without any additional noise.
