Up Close: Exterior Overview
As you can see, the Styx we have for review today is a lovely deep candy apple Red in colour. If Red doesn't float your boat then there's always Silver, Gold, Blue and Green. Heck it's even available in Black for all you traditionalists. As if that wasn't enough choice you can also choose whether to buy the windowed or non windowed version of the case, so straight off the bat we have a twelve different options. Whichever you go for we think you'll be delighted with the quality of the Hair silk Anodising of the Aluminium, it really is a thing of beauty and flawless in every respect.
As this is an inverted Motherboard design, the left hand side of the case is devoid of any windows and features, with that duty being handed over the right hand side panel. This has a small window in the bottom right hand corner. It's not full width because the PSU resides immediately forward of it, and it's not full height because as you'll see when we look inside, a dirty great HDD rack runs across the top of the case above where the window is located. The window itself is acrylic and is held in by four bolt through allen headed screws, so it'd be an easy enough job to change it should you so desire. Also in the front there's a very subtle slot for a slim line Optical drive. It's convenient enough to be usable should you need it and small enough to pretty much ignore if you'd rather not.
The roof of the Styx has a large Black mesh panel under which are mounts for a pair of 120mm fans (none are included). The Front I/O can also be found up here
The front of the case is a beautiful un interrupted sheet of 1.5mm thick Hair Silk Brushed Aluminium, bevelled elegantly around the edges to reveal the bare Aluminium shining beneath.
