PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES
The Optimus GS-6000 is a steel chassis with a plastic front bezel and will support both ATX and mATX motherboards. There is ample storage space for ODDs, HDDs and SSDs and seven expansion bays will be sufficient for the vast majority of users. With four included fans, the Optimus should provide a cool environment for components. We’ll see. Senty also offers a second version, the GS-6000R with red LED fans and red trim, but we have the original for review.
We’ll go over these features in more detail as we proceed through the review, but I like what I see so far.
The carton has full color graphics on the front depicting the case in both states of trim. Elsewhere, there are abbreviated specification and feature lists and the whole packaging scheme is much more than one would expect from a budget chassis. Hell, it even has a convenient carry handle on the top. Inside, the Optimus is wrapped in a plastic bag and nestled between two Styrofoam blocks. There’s nothing remarkable about this, but what is remarkable is that the carton received so much damage in transit and still delivered its payload in pristine condition.
Also included is a product sheet and user’s manual, along with the accessory bag. Containing only a case speaker, an extra expansion bay cover, a padlock loop and a few screws and standoffs, the hardware bag seems to portend a lot of tool-free features. Again, we’ll see.
