For those who’ve had your fill of massive home windows and blinding lights in your PC case, Fractal Design’s Outline 7 mid-tower PC case is the remedy for what ails you, and proper now you possibly can decide one up for simply $129.99 at Newegg.
The Outline 7 is mainly the exact opposite of typical gaming PC instances. It is a monolithic slab of brushed aluminum, with nothing however an influence button, a single energy/HDD LED, and a handful of audio and USB ports throughout the highest to disclose that it’s actually a PC case and never only a bizarre slab of metallic. There’s sufficient house inside this unhealthy boy to accommodate E-ATX motherboards, and the tool-less chassis opens to completely expose the inside on three sides. It comes with three 140mm cooling followers (and has room for much more), and if watercooling is your factor it additionally helps radiators of as much as 420mm in dimension.
There’s so much to love about this case, however one among my favourite issues is the “silence-optimized building with industrial sound-damped entrance, high, and facet panels,” because the Fractal Design website places it. That is not an idle boast: I’ve an older Outline R4 case, and even with all the inner followers cranking away (to not point out the GPU fan when it will get going), I do not hear my PC working until I am standing instantly beside it. I’ve had some loud gamer instances up to now (actually, my Outline R4 changed an Antec 9 Hundred, which was enjoyable for awhile however appeared like a jet taking off and sucked mud such as you would not imagine), and after a while with a Fractal Design case, I do not miss them in any respect.
The Outline 7 additionally options multiplayer high-airflow nylon filters to assist maintain your internals dust-free, and the highest panel may be swapped from a sound-dampened strong piece to filtered air flow, when you’d slightly have slightly extra cooling in trade for slightly extra noise. Windowed fashions are additionally accessible, for $10 extra—personally, I feel the strong look is a a lot nicer approach to go, however you do you.
