Well we saw the packaging and as interesting as that is, I think what most of us want to see is the case itself. The Apevia X-Telstar Jr. G Type Case has a very cool look to it. The first thing I noticed on this case was the brushed red steel, offset by a flat black. The front looks like a yin yang symbol; the Apevia logo is inset into a round, chrome circle in the top right, and an LCD is in round, chrome housing in the bottom left. The design is very well laid out on this case. The second feature most people would notice on this case is the large, blue 120mm fan attached to a clear, plexiglass side panel. This feature really makes this case stand out as not being your average case. The back of the case features another 120mm fan.
The front of the case opens up to reveal five 5.25" drive bays and one external 3.5" bay (a second is hidden internally), as well as reset and power buttons. Getting a closer look at the side panel fan reveals a metal cover in between the fan and the plexiglass. This cover has holes in it and is in place to keep larger pieces of debris from getting into your case and ruining you fragile components.
Removing the bezel reveals that the Apevia X-Telstar Jr. G Type Case is pretty much, what you see is what you get. There isn’t very much room to do any after market modding on the front of this case. On the other hand, as I mentioned there are some very creative ones out there. Maybe there is something I am missing; the bezel is deep enough to add in more lights if a person wants to go all out on their case.
At the back of the case there is a 120mm fan. This fan does not have pretty blue LEDs, but it is the same translucent blue color of the side panel fan. It also has a protective guard over it to keep big debris out of the case.
