PRODUCT COMPOSITION & WALKTHROUGH



The X-QPACK arrived in excellent condition. I won’t bore you with photos and verbiage about the packaging; it was both quite adequate and unremarkable. Aspire offers this case in five different colors: Aluminum (silver), blue, green, red and yellow. After removing all the protective stuff, I found that they had sent me the silver model. The front bezel is really very elegant in its simplicity.



Framed in silver, the black central portion of the bezel houses two 5.25 inch and one 3.5 inch drive bays, an LCD temperature display, two USB 2.0 ports, a Firewire port, headphone and microphone ports. Power and drive activity LEDs are green and amber, respectively followed by a recessed reset button. The power button lives near the top right corner. One of the more unique features of the X-QPACK chassis is the integrated carry handle tucked away just under the black center area. Aspire claims that this handle will support up to forty pounds.


 

 

 

 

 

 


As mentioned above, the X-QPACK gives new meaning to the term “windowed case”.
Just to the right of the left side window are ventilation louvers providing cool air intake, as there is no provision for ventilation from the front.



The right side is virtually identical to the left.



Moving to the rear, the X-QPACK sports a 120mm exhaust fan behind a honeycomb grille with lots of open area to minimize airflow restriction. Similarly the power supply has been designed with low airflow restriction in mind. The customary I/O shield and four expansion slots round out the rear of the case
