lower section also contains two plastic racks in the front for
80mm intake fans and a spot in the back near the CPU for a 92mm
exhaust fan. None of those fans require screws to be installed,
everything is held in place by clips. The holes in the chassis
to let the air go through are much bigger then what I have seen
in other cases. The front panel has a built in filter to prevent
dust accumulation in the system. This filter is removable so
it can be washed and reused. One 80mm ball bearing fan is included
with the case.
removable motherboard tray is included. It makes the system
easier to install. You can install the motherboard and all the
ISA/PCI/AGP cards, the CPU and DIMM(s) of RAM on the tray and
then slap it back in place in one big piece. The tray is held
to the case by four screws.
The LEDs and reset button are also located in the lower section
of the case. What is interesting about them is that they are
not attached to the bezel but to the frame of the case. They
are held in place by a little plastic box, which is held to
the case by clips. This makes it very easy to switch LEDs. There
is one dual color (green/orange) power LED and two red LEDs
for hard drives. The reset button is a little bit too small.
the case is great! It's a little bit expensive though. You can
get the 6890A for 80$ without a power supply. With a 300W power
supply like I got, the price jump to $134, I believe the price
is fair if you consider all the features and the level of quality
you get. If this case is not exactly what you are looking for
there is other models available in the same series. The 6896A
is a revision model of the 6890A. The 7890A and 7896A are bigger
models, which feature all the same nice options but with even
more drive bays and more fan cages.
for more information on all the models they offer. They give
excellent service and they ship your order within 24 hours.
For the price I will give it 8/10 because it is quite expensive
but I believe it is a fair price. And I will give it a big 10
for it's performances. It is very spacious, robust and has enough
fan options to keep any system cool. If you are shopping for
a top quality case, Addtronics is definitely a brand you should
put on your list.
