The Azza Storm 6000 comes in two color choices and offers a whopping five fans (four of which are RGB), E-ATX support, the ability to install large radiators and potent hardware; all while keeping the price pretty low. Will the case hold out the storm or will its four Hurricane RGB fans rattle the cage?

I have two Azza cases... from 8 years ago...

This one does have a certain style going for it, but why no reset, why USB2 on front instead of all USB3, why a front panel that murders airflow?

I have this case, the cheapest case that has 8 expansion slot in my country.
The only thing I hate about it that it uses tempered glass that adds to shipping cost. The only thing adding to shipping cost is the fact that the tempered glass side is packed on its own wooden packaging, not even the case proper is in wooden packaging.

Maybe I will buy one later saying don't bother with wooden packaging. The tempered glass is broken? Who cares.

Ikenai borderline!
Page 4 could stand to be clarified a bit regarding the location of the drive trays. I was looking at this picture https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Azza/Storm_6000/images/innerside2.jpg which shows the back of the motherboard and 3 of the trays, I didn't realise that I should've looked at the previous pic to see the last tray (because the thumbnail for the 1st pic doesn't highlight that last tray very well, so I ignored it). So I thought it only had 3 trays, which didn't correlate with the review text, so I was very confused.

The shroud makes no sense, it's supposed to hide your cables and PSU and HDDs from the big beautiful window, here it seems Azza has got confused and put the shroud's vertical component on the other side of the case where it does nothing except block things.

Would be very useful to know if the 5.25" bays are removable and if you can mount larger radiators in their place. In fact, how the cooling of this chassis does or does not work is a pretty important - but missing - data point considering its interesting styling.

I purchased a AZZA 3000 from SneakyPete several years ago. It's a nice large case and fits my needs with 360 rad and water loop. I agree with Assimilator if you put the glass on the side your cable management needs to be up to par but over all a large workable case at a decent price. Thanks for the review Darksaber...

on my copy of this casing the 5.25" bays are removable but putting any 360 mm on there will probably need to consider the fact that the SSD trays may block it.
the psu shroud is removable.
