Sharkoon Announces Tarea Mid-Tower Case

SECC vs Aluminum: Does the material of the case matter (as long as it's metal/alloy)?

  • Yes, aluminum is cooler, lighter

    Votes: 2 50.0%
  • No, thinner SECC sheets are light and sturdier than aluminum, fans look after cooling

Sharkoon is expanding their collection of PC cases: The Sharkoon Tarea comes with nine 5.25" bays and a straightforward, simple mesh front design as a follow-up to the successful Sharkoon Rebel9 Economy.

The ATX case, to include the interior, maintains a completely black lacquer finish. The front presents itself with nine different mesh faceplates, while mesh inserts in the rounded, vertical frame edges complete the design. The nine 5.25 inch bays and seven card slots offer more than enough room for hard drives, optical drives, function panels and expansion cards of your choice.

The only thing Sharkoon should have done was installed rubber bushings/grommets where you'd route your wiring. For the price though...this seems like a really good deal on what I'd say is a clean, great looking case. Ugh lol, I really dislike that they labeled the bays for as CD-ROM, silly.

The edges are rolled, no danger to wiring

It wasn't the issue of the wiring be in danger to short, I just think it provides a cleaner look. I guess it doesn't matter since it doesn't have a window though. Guess I was just being too damn picky.

The price is right, any chance of a review?
