|Xclio 3060 Plus ATX Case with 36cm Fan
As computers become more advanced they generally produce more heat, and one way to reduce the heat is to use fans to circulate air inside the case. 80mm fans were the standard for years, then 120mm fans became more popular. Recently, some manufacturers have gone to even larger fans inside their cases to help increase the airflow while keeping the noise level down.
Xclio was one of the first manufacturers to incorporate oversized fans in their cases when they released the A380 Super Tower Case with two 25cm fans. Now they have released the 3060 Plus, a mid-tower case with a 36cm fan on the side panel! Let's take a look at this case, and see whether the incredibly large case fan offers any benefits.

The packaging for the Xclio 3060 Plus ATX Case with 36cm Fan does not include a vibrant box covered in a lot of pictures. The box is plain white with simple black letters, and there is not a lot of information provided. The front and back of the box simply have the Xclio logo, while the sides have the shipping weight and model number. Like almost every other case, it is surrounded by two large foam blocks inside the box to protect it from shipping damage.
