Xclio A380 Super Tower Case
March 07, 2007

Exterior Inspection:

The front of the case looks intimidating with the huge 25CM fan and its grill. The top half swings open to the left to reveal the 5.25" bays. On the 'business' side we see yet another 25CM fan and a pretty large viewing area through the acrylic window.

The back of the case looks like many on the market today with the exception of a pre-installed knob in the expansion card area. This is the fan speed control for the side 25CM fan.

The right side of the case mimics the left side's protruding extension of the front 25CM fan. On the top of the right side we see the easy access USB and audio ports. There is a small slider to cover them while not in use to keep out dust and dirt.

Opening the front panel door we see five 5.25" bays, one 3.5" bay, and the reset and power switches. On the door there are two small magnets that snap the door closed. I am not a huge fan of doors because sometimes the DVD/CD tray will auto eject and forcefully pop the door open. With these magnets holding the door closed, the tray needs to push harder to open.

The front 25CM intake fan also includes a fan speed controller. On the left side of the case you can see a small black dial that dictates the speed of the front fan. The fan mounted to the side window is placed to cool a video card or two, and to help bring some cool air onto the CPU and chipset. I like the side fan's filter which will catch the majority of the dust and keep it from clinging on the hardware inside (although the whole fan must be unscrewed to get to the filter). It is too bad the front fan does not have any filtering other than the exterior grill. Both fans are rated at 800RPM with an air flow rating of 150 CFM which is pretty nice for some extra cooling.
