The Spire Diablo PC case is a versatile ATX chassis with a modest gamer look. This tower structure is contemporary and cost effective. The meshed aluminum front panel allows unrestricted fresh air intake which is mandatory for today's extremely hot Micro-processors, Graphic cards and Data Drives. The internal design provides enough room for hardware assembly, supports up to six (6) 3.5-inch & three (3) 5.25-inch drive devices. The 5.25 bezels are tool-free and easy to remove. You can also install a 3.5 inch device such as a multifunctional card-reader. The chassis structure is all black and prepared for decent cooling, there is space for 1* 92mm fan at the rear and 1* 80mm fan on the side panel for additional VGA cooling.

I like it, looks are ok nothing crazy just simple but effective. I could see myself building a few mid range gaming computers with this case. Reminds of of alot of midrange cooler master cases realy

This case looks bad. It is much better to buy Xigmatek Asgard 381 instead this. Xigmatek features: cable management, bottom mounted PSU, Tool less mounting system, USB 3.0 and much more bigger holes for fans and long LCS. So I see no point to take this case :/

... The meshed aluminum front panel allows unrestricted fresh air intake which is mandatory for today's extremely hot Micro-processors ... The chassis structure is all black and prepared for decent cooling, there is space for 1* 92mm fan at the rear and 1* 80mm fan on the side panel for additional VGA cooling.

Main Features:
  • Rear and side –panel fan space
  • Efficient Air In-take, rear, front and side-panel

MSRP: USD 29.99
So if I understand correctly, this case comes with no fans?

Common people don't be fooled by the black interior. This case is too small, you can barely fit a standard atx mobo in it and I'm sure you cant event install a radeon hd7770 and a hdd at the same level. A gamming case needs to handle a lot of heat, in this case you cant install a 120mm fan. This is just an overpainted very low budget case.




p.s. sorry for my bad english
