HexGear R40 Case Review



The Hexgear R40 has been around a little while now and we have seen some amazing mods based around it. Is it worth of your hard earned beer tokens and some of your desk real estate?

Nice case for enthusiast watercooling cant wait to see the atx version and the price that comes in at.

Loving the new office Tom, looks like you have more room for reviews like this. I hope you have insurance on that top right shelf

About the offset of the fan mounting plates you mentioned you'd like to see: It would be impossible I guess because then people would moan about their lovely little spinny thing not being centered in their huge playmobile doll house with the honeybee logo grill up top. It would look off and i think in the case of the top panel it wouldn't even fit

You would guess wrong other than the off-centre rad / fans but if it was in the bottom it wouldn't matter. They are actually going to launch a panel you can buy if you want to to address this now.

The new award makes a lot of sense for products of this nature and it looks gloriously coordinated in the new studio. Seeing 60 fps in recorded footage takes some getting used to but it does make everything feel very fresh and crisp.

I think seeing the fans centered under the grill justifies the lack of offset, there is a huge amount of 25-40mm radiators and that covers nearly all of the premium offerings you would expect to be paired with a case like this. Still the more available options the better I guess, on that subject I thought permanently attached feet were an extra too?

I like this case IMHO this case is better than the Parvum Systems Cases but the sad thing is that i can't see any PC shops getting them cause of the flat pack people here don't want to put cases together cause the Parvum Systems Cases was a major flop here.
