You can see from Xclio's posted specifications just how big this chassis is. It comes with two 250mm (that's almost 10 inches, folks!) fans and the A380 includes a fan controller for each one. It's a steel case with plastic accents and an acrylic side window that tips the scales at a hefty 11.75 kilograms (26 pounds for us non-metric types.) Plenty of drive bays and some tool-free features round out the pertinent information about the A380.

 

PRODUCT COMPOSITION


For $100-$110 US you'll get the following.




The box has some nice graphics and a relatively complete list of specifications and features. Inside, the case is protected by a heavy plastic bag sandwiched between two foam blocks.



Some zip-bags contain the mounting hardware, including a speaker, cable routing aids and tool-free drive rails. There are five sets of rails for 5.25 devices, four sets of HDD rails and a single set of FDD rails. The manual is rather rudimentary. While an experienced PC enthusiast will have no trouble working in this chassis, Xclio could have provided a more detailed manual for the novice builder.
