Gamer Storm Dukase Liquid Case Review  

Cooling

Traditionally we'd start off with an image of our Havik 120 tower cooler in the case to show the limits and proportions of the case with regards to the cooler.  As this case comes with an integrated AIO it would be kinda daft to buy it, rip out the AIO and replace it with a tower cooler.  Should you so desire though, be assured that it will in fact take coolers up to 160mm tall.

We actually quite like the red, and the semi Steam punk appearance of the cold plate/pump assembly.  It might not be to all tastes, but it's each to their own as they say.

We thought the fans were also worth a mention, as they're far from being cheap OEM units often seen on AIOs.

"Quality issues aside, we suspect this case will sell quite well,especially to those wanting the simplest route possible into water cooling."

To quote the ending: I would avoid this case like the plague. Simply for the issues you mentioned in the article. If I was a newb at building a pc and thought oh cool...yeah if I found this article my reaction would change from "oh cool" to..."wait its just screws for the AIO? I can do that!"

I know its not an AIO and is an extended AIO, using the article words, but like...just no! To many issues to deal with and bother with.

Also while the price isn't bad, again this case has far to many little problems for a case of that price point. In my opinion I would never buy or even recommend this case- Its a GREAT idea...but the design of the case kills it.Quote

Really does seem like they have tried to recycle old stock cases and sell them as a new product.
90mm exhaust fan mounts? who even uses those these days?

But those fan blades. Never seen anything like them before. Would love to see some tests done on that design. Looks like it would provide increased direct flow but generate a little more noise. I would hazard a guess that they have taken an average airline plane design to increase airflow over the blades. You see planes extend the flaps for the stability. Wonder how it behaves in a closed environment with Static pressure.Quote

Reading this review started with an astonished "What is this?!" and ended with a rather disgusted "What is this?!"...

I thought the hot glue seriously were spider webs at first sight...

Nice idea and deserves the innovation award, but other than that... Meh. Especially the PSU issue made me facepalm so loud, my colleagues two bureaus down the hallway could hear it.Quote

This is horrific. It looks nice from the outside, but it's actually horrific. And I am so triggered by those optical and floppy drive slots.Quote

You are paying for the cooler, case comes free. The metal looks extremely thin, no cable room which points to a reskin of an old design and so on. I do like the braided hose and flow meters though, that is a nice touch.

But yeah, the photos alone make me want to avoid it.Quote
