Preview: My name is Dark Force

Thermal Solutions specialist GELID Solutions reveals its first tower case from its GAMER product line. The case is dubbed “Dark Force” and boasts 0.7mm SECC steel  body and a long list of advanced features. Since gamers like to show off, Gelid included a large acrylic window on the side panel.

Gamers usually make sure that a case has enough room for their graphics and whether it packs good cooling. Dark Force thankfully has enough room but if you need more, you can remove the HDD cage, leaving 410mm of room. Dark Force will take CPU coolers up to 165mm, meaning that most high-end CPU coolers will fit easily.

 

Unbenannt

Dark Force can take up to eight fans but although Gelid Solutions is famous for quality fans, the case comes with only two. Namely, it has two 120mm fans – on the front and the other on the rear panel. Gelid also threw in two included internal fan extension PCBs.

The bottom panel will take a 240mm fan whereas the rear panel features 8+1 slots for peripheral devices. The I/O panel houses USB 3.0, two USB 2.0 ports, eSATA and a hotswap unit for 3.5” or 2.5” devices.

“No compromises were made in the design of this case, no costs were cut in order to provide PC enthusiasts looking to upgrade or replace their desktops with a high quality build“, said Gebhard Scherrer, Sales Director of GELID Solutions Ltd.

The case is RoHS and WEEE conform and carries a 2-year warranty. It is available now and has a MSRP of USD 119.99 or Euro 91.

Stay tuned though, as we’ll have the full review up soon.
