Sonex 6010 Computer Case is $70 of "Just Pure Cool Looks," Spire Says

Paul Lilly

Spire set out to release a "versatile gamer chassis" and came up with the Sonex 6010, a $70 computer case with a meshed aluminum front panel and a "spacious internal design." And by spacious, Spire means this mid-tower case can accommodate graphics cards up to 330mm (just shy of 13 inches) in length, large-size CPU coolers, and support for up to six 3.5-inch and four 5.25-inch drives.

The case is made of SECC (Steel, Electrogalvanized, ColdRolled, Coil) 0.6mm material, a lighter weight alternative to aluminum over standard steel (aluminum is the lightest and great at dissipating heat, but also the most costly). It comes with 120mm blue LED fans pre-installed on the front (intake) and rear (exhaust), with two additional 120mm fan mounts on the side panel. Dust filters cover all meshed areas.

In terms of getting inside and building a system, thumb screws hold the side panels in place, and there's a CPU cutout for easy heatsink installation. As has become standard, the Sonex 6010 also features rubberized water cooling in/outlets in the rear.

The front panel supports two USB 2.0 ports (no love for USB 3.0), as well as AC'97 and HD audio connectors.
