Akasa Infiniti Zor Case


First of all we set about trying out the hard drive enclosures. Initially we were a bit baffled as to how you attach your hard drive to the rails. However, it seems you simply push some pins in the screw holes on your drive. It seemed to hold it fairly securely, but it’s certainly not the strongest hold in the world.

Next up, we tried out the removable motherboard tray. This was simple to remove and it only took a couple of moments to install our motherboard onto the tray. However, we hit a bit of a problem when installing it into the case. There are anchors which slide into slots on the case to hold in the motherboard tray. Getting these lined up perfectly isn’t easy, especially as you cannot see them under the motherboard. Unless you get these perfectly lined up first time, you end up bending them (they are incredibly flimsy) and unfortunately the tray will not attach.

After three attempted installs of the motherboard tray, we still couldn’t get it right. In the end we had to leave the tray installed and install the pc in the usual manner. It was then that the next problem presented itself- cable management. There is barely anywhere for you to hide your cables, and it took longer than usual to get the cables looking decent

Nice review guys, and you're honest.

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