Cooltek Skiron reviewed - The Looks: Outside

Written by Sanjin Rados

Review: Attractive features but expected more from it

Cooltek decided to offer black/white and red/black versions of Skiron, and both come with black exterior. You can see both on the pictures below.

The large mesh on the left panel caught our eye, so we'll start there.

The mesh is protruding out of the case, which allows for CPU coolers up to 175mm tall. Additionally, this provides extra room for fans. Mounting fans on the left side panel helps with CrossFire and SLI cooling. The mesh is large enough to take four 120mm fans, or a single 180/200/220/230mm fan.

The rubber grommets are there to prevent fan noise that comes from vibration.

It would've been great if there was a dust filter on the mesh, but unfortunately this isn't the case.

The opposite, right side of Skiron also has air exhausts, although they're not meant for fans. The hole in the bottom corner is parallel with the 3.5'' cage.

The bottom part of front panel is reserved for fans, while the top part has room for three 5.25'' optical drives.

Unlike Cooltek's cases we've tested before, Skiron comes with removable 5.25'' covers, the kind that doesn't require taking off the front panel. The covers have handles that you use to take it out. Many users use at least some kind of a 3.5'' device, so shipping a 5.25''/3.5'' adapter cover is a pretty nice touch from Cooltek.

Skiron comes with four fans - a large 17cm one on the top panel (max.900RPM), one 12cm fan on the rear panel (max.1200RPM) and two 12cm fans on the front panel (max.1200RPM).
