OC3D Review: A+ Case El Diablo

If you like your case to have a presence, take a look here because this case has it in spades!

What a stellar effort on your first review mate. You covered all of the main features/cons and provided good images to reinforce them. Well done ...keep up the great work.

The case actually looks interesting, and those larger fans seem to keep things well cooled. I'm a sucker for an aluminium case, but the steel used here is reflected in the price.

Thanks for the feedback Peevles.

For the price the case has plenty to offer in terms of cooling features.

My current short list for buying a case is either the el diablo or the NZXT blackline in blue. Any preferences people?

Oh, and im afraid you didnt note that the door is on the left, major irritation, and by the looks, only open 90 degrees.

Lo matey...hope you enjoyed reading the review

Yes, the door opens up to 180° degrees...I think the image which depicts the case with the door open shows that the hinge is on the left-hand side...

Tough decision tbh as I've not seen a NZXT case in the flesh....I hope the review helps you to make your mind up either way.
