I must say the Apevia X-Telstar Jr. G Type Case definitely caught my eye. The design and features were very well thought out. Let's get back to the questions we asked in the introduction; did the “prettified” case help performance in anyway? Yes, part of the reason this case looks so nice is the 120mm fan. Sure it may be more so the pretty blue lights, but the big fan is a huge plus for this case, both aesthetically and for cooling. Are there some real pluses in a modified case? Absolutely; the LCD screen fan control and dual stock 120mm fans give this case a huge push in the right direction. My “Super Case” is the closest thing I have to a whitebox and the Apevia blew it away.
All of the neat features aside, there were a few notable flaws; the cheap plastic tabs for the PCI slots and the fact that you need to store the rails for hard drives if you don’t use them all up is a little irritating. Other cases use tool-less drive bay options that are stored on the drive bay till you need them. My office is a mess I can’t keep track of little rails, so I hope they try something different in the future. These are some small drawbacks to an otherwise great case. In spite of these flaws, I still wholeheartedly recommend this case to anyone looking for something new. This may be one of the best cases you’ll ever own.
