Xclio Wind Tunnel Extreme Cooling PC Case
August 31, 2007

Installation and Operation:

For the installation, operation and testing portion of this review, I installed the following components into the Xclio Wind Tunnel Extreme Cooling PC Case:

AMD Opteron 185 Processor
DFI LANParty NF4 SLI-DR Motherboard
1024MB G.SKILL Extreme DDR (2 x 512MB) memory
3x Western Digital 36GB 10K RPM SATA-I hard drives
Two eVGA GeForce 7800 GT CO SLI 256MB GDDR3 PCI-E graphics cards
Zippy (EMACS) 600W power supply
Sound Blaster Audigy 2z Platinum sound card with front panel device
Pioneer DL DVDRW
IcyDock MB722 series SATA drive enclosure


The only part of the case that actually needs a tool is the motherboard installation. That part is standard and there weren't any surprises. After the motherboard is installed I put the cards in the expansion slots and secured them all at once with the clamp. Installing hard drives is also a snap, simply attach two of the turquoise colored rails onto a drive and slide it into the appropriate section. Three hard drives can be installed without removing the accessory storage box.

Since the Xclio Wind Tunnel is a full tower case there is plenty of room for all of the hardware and cables. Everything fits nicely and air from the dual 25cm fans should be able to circulate freely and keep the hardware cool. As for the 5.25" bay devices I installed, there weren't any issues sliding them into an open bay. Just like the hard drives, insert two of the appropriate device rails into the device and slide it in. One flaw I found in the front panel door is that it would not close all the way because of some of the 5.25" devices stuck out a little bit. If the door had a few centimeters of clearance this wouldn't be an issue.
