DeepCool Rolls Out the MATREXX 55 PWM 2F E-ATX Case

DeepCool today rolled out the MATREXX 55 PWM 2F, a variant of the original MATREXX 55 from 2018, but a sibling of the more recent MATREXX 55 Mesh 4F from earlier this year, which replaces the tempered glass front panel with an airy steel mesh that lets the front intake fans breathe better. What sets this case apart from the Mesh 4F is the set of pre-installed fans. While the 4F includes four DC fans (three pre-installed along the front intake and one at the rear exhaust), the new MATREXX 55 PWM 2F includes just two fans, one at the front and the other out back. It's just that these included fans are of a higher quality, with 4-pin PWM input, and possibly a higher service life bearing.

The case is otherwise identical to the Mesh 4F, with its horizontally partitioned interior with room for motherboards up to E-ATX length, graphics cards that are up to 37 cm long, and CPU coolers up to 16.8 cm in height. Storage areas include two 3.5-inch drive bays that can each hold 2.5-inch drives, and two additional 2.5-inch mounts. Among the fan mounts are three 140/120 mm front, two 140/120 mm top, and a 120 mm rear exhaust. The case measures 440 mm x 210 mm x 480 mm (HxWxD), weighing 6.6 kg. The company didn't reveal pricing, but it could be identical to the Mesh 4F, at around $80.

Except it's not Dell quality and not professionally looking (mandatory glass panel).
Do they even offer dust filters for this case?

And I just can't get my head around the shroud hole that exposes the PSU. What happened there? :o

If I had to guess they included it so you could see the side of your PSU. Not entirely sure why unless you're constantly wondering what brand you have lol.

Also top lols @ you thinking a dell would have better quality.

I guess PSUs got so expensive and elitist, it's worth showing how much you've spend on your shiny Corsair or whatever. :)

Have you ever seen a Dell Precision case? :D

It's quite a miracle when a $100 DIY case matches mainstream Optiplex line.

To me it looks more like a Thermaltake Versa H18
DeepCool has a cheaper window solution. It also look like they don't believe in mesh panels, because they left side intakes.

That Thermaltake is weird too.
Again, no dust filter on the mesh front. Maybe there's a net. Not sure if it's removable (not mentioned in the manual).
At least it has a more robust side window solution than the Deepdust.

On TT website it has a similar PSU hole to admire the ratings. However, in a review 2 years ago it had a full shroud:

Who buys these? :o
