MNPCTech SC135 Pre-Modded Case ReviewFormer staff writer - April 13, 2004
The case comes in all black, and is made of steel with a modified front grill (more on that later). At the bottom of the front panel you have 2xUSB ports, firewire, speaker, and microphone jacks. These can come in real handy setting up at a LAN.
From the back we can see another 120mm fan with grill, and your standard I/O port, seven PCI slots, and the installed PSU.
On the side of the case panel there is a 120mm case fan that blows air inside the case, directly over your video card. Instead of a cool looking laser cut fan grill covering the fan hole, MNPCTech opted to go with a plain chrome fan grill. MNPCTech did use rubber like washers between the screws of the fan grill and the case panel. This keeps noise down by absorbing the vibrations that the fan makes. MNPCTech finished the hole off by wrapping a rubber seal around the cut hole, which gives the fan hole a more complete look. The same attention to detail was taken on each hole punched out for the other two 120mm fans.
On the top of the case we can see the powder coated heavy duty recessed case handles. These handles are awesome! They're spring-loaded so they wont be flopping around and rattling while transporting the SC135. These handles make transporting the SC135 to LAN�s a breeze.
