One day, not so long ago, someone realized that standard cases were somewhat boring. From the first fan mod to now, modders have added a range of creative things to their cases. Once modding really started taking off, manufacturers hopped on the bandwagon, wanting their cut of this new market. I remember the good ol’ days, where older Maximum PC and PC gamer issues contained ads for Alienware, pumping out quality PC mods. Aesthetics aside, do these, for lack of a better word, “prettified” cases actually increase performance in any way? Are there some real pluses to a modified case? The Apevia X-Telstar Jr. G Type Case has many extra features over your average whitebox; let’s see if they succeed or fail miserably.
The Apevia X-Telstar Jr. G Type Case is a smaller case, with lots of bells and whistles. Coming stock with two 120mm fans for the G Type and one 240mm and one 120mm for the S Type, these cases seem to have what it takes to keep a case of this size, nice and cool. Let's get a closer look at it.
When I first received the package, I noticed the picture on the front. Most of the time, the cases I order have a plain brown box with no product shots at all, so this was a nice change. On the side panel it tells you the color of the case with a black sticker in the designated spot.
Styrofoam protects the X-Telstar Jr. G from being bashed, and a clear plastic covers the case to prevent scratches tand the inevitable dust from shipment ruining the X-Telstar finish.
The X-Telstar Jr. G comes with your standard standoffs, screws and manual. It also includes rails for its tool-less disk drive mounts, which are a clean translucent blue color.
