PC enthusiasts can match the Metallic Gold case with the TOUGHRAM RGB Metallic Gold to form the ideal PC build in a more comprehensive style and to further achieve the "Your MOD, Your Way" spirit.

The Tower 100 Metallic Gold provides panoramic viewing by featuring three 4 mm tempered glass windows at the front, left, and right sides. Additionally, the two 120 mm standard fans preinstalled and the sophisticated internal layout helps to provide a smooth air intake and exhaust to keep the interior temperature low, guarantying outstanding cooling performance. What's more, The Tower 100 Metallic Gold has good hardware compatibility, supporting a CPU cooler with a maximum height of 190 mm, VGA with a maximum length of 330 mm, a power supply with a length of up to 180 mm, two 2.5" SSDs with the side bracket, and two 2.5" or two 3.5" HDD at the rear (without rear fan).

Gold? No doubt the color accuracy on my monitor has degraded in the decade since I bought it, but that looks bright orange to me. Copper, maybe?

Reminds me of the old Metallic Orange NZXT cases they had back in the early 2010s (had one of those as a semi-custom prebuilt from an young iBuypower), as well as some of the other early "Brushed Aluminum and Colored" cases from the likes of Superflower? (PowerFlower? Some OEM that made many of those cheap brushed aluminum cases with different badging), which also had Metallic Orange and Metallic Purple as some of the weirder color options.

I was just about to say the same thing, prob cause of low-quality rendering, but if it truly is a color-accurate gold, I wish they would make a 900 series model in the same color, which I could set beside my black & red one, just for kicks.....hehehe :)

I'm reasonably sure those are actual product photos - they're a bit too natural-looking for renders (a render would likely look more geometrically perfect and less realistic in terms of surface finishes etc.). Still, it could just be a paint that doesn't come off well in photos, or poor lighting, or poor editing, or anything really.

I was thinking the same thing while looking at the pictures like this: :wtf:

Also, has the construction of the case improved since the initial release? I've read somewhere that the GPU is too close to the side panel for any air to move towards it, resulting in (potentially) overheating.

That second pic sure doesn't make it look like there is a lot of breathing room there. 2-3cm at most, but likely less.

Hm, perhaps color naming might be down to there being a certain ... let's say stigma attached to the color orange growing over the past four-and-a-half years or so? And a parallel culture of emphatic denial of the existence of any orange color as well?

To be fair, I've got nothing against the colour orange. I've always thought the orange Focus ST looks cool. I also like the orange accents on my ASUS Tuf Gaming motherboard - or do they call it gold as well? :D

I quite like the color orange myself as well, I was just thinking aloud regarding certain political connotations it might have gained, at least in the US (and overall English-speaking world, I guess?), and how this might motivate some to claim that no, this is not orange, it is in fact a perfectly normal and high end gold. :D

It would have a lot more political connotation in Hungary, where the leading (and quite dictatorial) party's colour is orange.

I'm seeing the same thing. That looks more Copper-ish than Gold like. Not a bad look, just not Gold.

that's about as metallic gold as you're gonna get with flat spray paint on cheap steel. Burnt orange.

Accessing the I/O on the motherboard looks inconvenient. I like the colour.
