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.</p> <p>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.</p> <p>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.</p> <p>The front panel supports two USB 2.0 ports (no love for USB 3.0), as well as AC'97 and HD audio connectors.</p> <p><a href="http://www.spire-corp.com/main/product_detail.asp?ProdID=1154">Sonex 6010 Product Page</a></p> <p>Image Credit: Spire</p> http://www.maximumpc.com/article/news/sonex_6010_computer_case_70_just_pure_cool_looks_spire_says#comments Build a PC case chassis enclosure Hardware sonex 6010 spire News Mon, 16 Jan 2012 17:20:23 +0000 Paul Lilly 22267 at http://www.maximumpc.com
