A+ Case Monolize ATX Full Tower Case



The Aplus CS Monolize is a very well proportioned case that is well built and looks pretty decent, especially when lit up. Mostly built to a very good standard, there are a few niggles that you may not find in some of the more expensive cases out there.

The looks of a case is a very personal thing but I actually have grown to quite like the Monolize case. OK, it's not your £200 top-end all-alu chassis, but it is good looking with only a touch of "gaming case bling".

Coming onto the price, £70 from one of our trusted retailors seems very good value to me for such a large case with some of the features I've mentioned. That's a full half of the price of the Silverstone TJ09 I reviewed earlier.


The A+ Case Monolize get's a "Value For Money" Award and "Recommended" for being a well made, attractive case well inside most people's case budget.

Meh, not a case for me. Not on the external looks either.

But I`m over 35, so I have an excuse.

In all seriousness tho, the internals of the case closely resemble the Thermaltake XaserII I have laying empty next to me. The lower drive area has been rotated and rejigged, but even looking at the front - it has the same pinching insertion things u stick to u`r devices. (the XaserII comes with a temp and fan control that fits into the top 5.25 bay, which I removed cos I never got it working >.< )

Those pci blank plate things are a pita without the top piece thing, good to see the inclusion of that to the spec.

Looks like a copy to me. Pretty darn heavy solid metally case ?Quote

Would you like some case with your fans Quote

Would you class it as heavy? If adding front and rear fans brought cpu coolingness up to scratch I would deffo consider this as a tj05 replacement Quote
