Akasa Infiniti Zor Case

Internals and Bundle

Internals and Bundle
Once you remove the side panel of the case, you are greeted with the internals. After you have removed the accessories box you are left with a case that seems quite bland. The internals are bare, and a fairly ugly affair.

The internals of the case are rather dull. It includes everything a case needs to, and little more. Because of this we will focus on the internals at the front of the case, where there is some genuinely very useful engineering going on.

We were a bit baffled as to how the front of the case disconnects and allows you access to the hard drive bays and the 5.25" drive bays. However, after a bit of discovery, it would appear you just pull it off. The panel came off a bit too easily for our liking though, and was a pain when lifting the case- we came close to dropping it a few times as the front panel simply ‘fell off’.

It’s also worth noting that if you don’t like where the USB, Firewire, Power switches etc are, you can simply move them using the modular drive bays. Another clever idea is to have all the cables that go into the back detachable. Presumably so you can remove the front of the case and not have to keep it just next door. However, since most, and not all of the cables do so, it’s useless. Each cover is attached by 2 screws, one of each side, and is easily removed

Below the usual drive bays, you come to the hard drive enclosures. These have four clips at the side, which you simply press in and slide out the enclosure. Removing the enclosure is certainly a two hand affair- the clips are quite far apart. Each enclosure has a 120mm fan, which is situated just behind a removable dust filter  which would certainly help keep things dust free.

Below is a picture of all the accessories included. There are the drive rails (for hard drives and 5.25” drives); various screws for installation and a user manual. Also included is an adapter for using a floppy drive or something of a similar size in the modular drive bays.

Nice review guys, and you're honest.

Not a good case unless you like your silicon cooked and your hard drives noisy.Quote
