Directron 8889-AL Aluminum Mid-Tower Case

Today I am reviewing an aluminum case made by Directron. For an aluminum case it is very nicely built with rolled edges and very few sharp protrusions. It has plenty of room for most users. It also has the advantages of some front ports for USB (2) and Firewire (IEEE1394). And it comes with a side window already installed. All this and more for under $100.00 shipped. (I think mine was right around $90.00 to my door.)


Advantages of Aluminum Cases: (1) Excellent thermal dissipation. Greatly reduced operating temperatures for high-speed microprocessors, high-end video cards and high-RPM hard drives. Ideal for overclocking and high-end machines. (2) Very light weight. Great for easy assembling and carrying it around for a LAN party. (3) Shining metallic, futuristic look. (4) Transparent Side Cover (Material: Acrylic).

Features & Specification: Materials: Aluminum. Dimensions: (W x D x H) 8.00″ x 18.25″ x 17″; 200 x 470 x 425mm. Form factor: Mid Tower ATX. Drive bays: 4 x 5.25″, 3 x 3.5″, . Expansion slots: 7. Front USB port (without connector and cable). Front IEEE1394. Connector: 4 X IDE, 2 X floppy. Power supply: TigerPro 360W, Model No: TP-360. Material: Aluminum. One 80 x 80mm fan in the front, One 80 x 80mm fan in the rear. Color: Silver-colored.

BitFenix Colussus Mini-ITX Review

I get very excited when I get a new case in the lab for review. I get even more excited when the case comes from BitFenix. BitFenix has been quietly making some of the best computer cases out there. Their signature SofTouch Surface Treatment is simply amazing. Having gained popularity with their Colossus case, BitFenix has decided to bring all that style and pizzazz to the Mini ITX platform, and dubbed it the Colossus Mini-ITX.
