    In addition to the C1007UN-D motherboard, GIGABYTE rolled out the IF 400 chassis for gaming PC builds. The ATX mid-tower measures 185 x 412 x 450 mm (WxDxH), and is made of 0.6 mm-thick SGCC steel and ABS. It gives you room for two 5.25-inch drives, both of which feature tool-free retention modules, and five 3.5/2.5-inch ones, of which two are tool-free. Ventilation is care of a 120 mm front intake, and a 120 mm rear exhaust, although there's provision for two 120 mm fans on the side-panel, and one on the bottom. GIGABYTE did not give out pricing information.

    No window - no go. Good is Front-USB. But looking cheap and uninspired, like the overwhelming rest. Even Lian Li - and I have 2 of them - should orientate towards Corsairs Design, they doing them same since decades.
    Still waiting for a caselab merlin with a XXL size window side panel, this would be my favorite.
    And a lot of room for cablemanagement is in my view prime.

    Nice case. I gues this will be around 50 bucks, so its pretty ok. Painted interior. Side mounting points, I like the fact it doesn't have a window.

    The same case is sold in my country ( Vietnam ), under "Thor" brand, name is Athena. It has side window here:

    Pretty cheap case ( around 35 USD ) with tons of features, but the steel used is very slim, same kind of steel used on cheap-dirty 15$ cases found on Newegg.
    Frick says thanks.

    It's this that makes it good imo. I really don't like windowed cases.

    You can always swap the side panel.

    its the other way round. easy to install a window. not an option for a steel sidewindow unless the company makes it.
