  • Phanteks Eclipse P300 Tempered Glass Case Review



    Computer cases have changed quite a bit of the past several years.  There once was a time where a case was more than a box to hold your motherboard where it was a challenge to pack in as many drives as you could.  Several of these need external access to the chassis like Blu-Ray and DVD drives while primary storage drives were stacked away inside the case.  Lately it would seem that external drives have fallen out of favor, mostly due to the advent of large USB storage drives, and larger hard drives and SSDs have removed the need to allocate more than 4 drive locations inside a chassis.

    So, what do you do with the extra space once these excesses have been removed?  Well, nothing.  In fact many case designers have resorted to making cases smaller to save both on space and manufacturing costs.
