    Taiwanese company Xilence Technology has now introduced a new PC chassis, the Black Hornet. Described as the 'little brother' of the Interceptor model, the Black Hornet measures 200 x 493 x 490 mm, is painted black both inside and out, and features a steel structure, a front I/O panel with USB 3.0 (x 2), eSATA (x 1) and HD Audio ports, a built-in SATA drive dock (it supports both 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch drives), and seven PCI slots.

    Xilence's case also has four exposed 5.25-inch bays, two 2.5-inch and four 3.5-inch internal drive bays, two hot-swap drive trays accessible through the front, and two built-in fans - one 120 mm spinner at the back and one 140 mm model with red LEDs in front. The Black Hornet costs 89.90 Euro and is now shipping to stores.

    Side panel looks to be mighty flimsy. There even seems to be a small dent on it in the picture.

    I agree, but I think I must be blind or something cos I can't find the small dent. D= Could you please explain where it is?

    EDIT: nvm, I think i see it now. ( near the two corners of the protruding section closest to the front of the case).

    i think it made that way and it's just the angle of the picture as i believe all that center part is indented slightly ( their is one higher up from it too.

    If there's one "dent" you see, then the one just opposite it isn't a "dent"? Even though they're mirror images? LOL

    Rebranded Enermax Hoplite? Is Enermax an OEM for cases? Having a Rosewill Blackhawk next to me I'm shocked at how many times I've seen it "introduced" by yet another company. Still... I'd trade it for the green version from Sharkoon in a second. Doubt this version has the Enermax fans but it looks to bring more than the Hoplite, that could be a plus or minus depending on how well you rate the vegas fans.
    Hokum says thanks.

    You nailed it. The Black Hornet is a Hoplite case with red accents, a slightly bigger front fan, and USB 3.0 ports on the front (with black plastic inside them - thanks for following the accepted standards, Xilence :shadedshu ).
