SilentiumPC Rolls Out Gladius GD8 TG ARGB Pure Black Case

SilentiumPC today rolled out the Gladius GD8 TG ARGB Pure Black case. This ATX mid-tower is characterized by an asymmetric band that runs from the center of the front, through the top, with its gaps with the rest of the panels being embellished with RGB LED diffusers. The left side panel features a clear tempered glass panel. While the RGB LED units are addressable, meaning you can control them via your motherboard's RGB software, SilentiumPC also included an RGB controller module wired to a button on the front-panel, which cycles through 50 lighting presets.

Inside, the Gladius GD8 features a conventional layout, with horizontal partitions. The motherboard tray serves up room for graphics cards up to 37 cm in length, and CPU coolers up to 17.8 cm in height, and the bottom compartment can hold PSUs up to 21 cm in length. Storage features include two 3.5-inch trays that can each hold 2.5-inch drives, and two additional 2.5-inch mounts. SilentiumPC is including three Sigma Pro 120 fans with the case, two fitted as front intakes, and a rear exhaust. There are two 120 mm front intakes, two 120 mm top exhausts, and a 120 mm rear exhaust. Measuring 219 mm x 455 mm x 496 mm (WxDxH), the case dry-weighs around 7 kg. The company didn't reveal pricing.

Why is the case name so long? They only have one "GD8" variant case on their product page. Why not just call it the "Gladius GD8" and be done with it?

Because that would make too much sense.

I have a big problem with these, not only are they not re-usable but you have to remember to remove the ones you need before mounting hardware. Its a cheap cop-out.

Those also suck if you change motherboard where the PCI-E layout is different, for example the graphics card goes one slot lower than before. And then there's just a stupid hole in the slots.

They're not meh, they're a quick method for crossing cases off my interest list ;)
But I can't really tell from the attached pictures whether these are reusable or not. Maybe there are better pictures on the product's web page?

Exactly! Though I have some slot covers in my boxes of goodies, but it's still a meh.
