One component that always separates enthusiasts is the chassis that holds their components. The case can define your personality, show your taste, and your expertise in computers. Almost every enthusiast that I know has picked their case because of its features, but more importantly, its appearance. Personally, I love cases that are painted black, look very sleek and are complimented by a nice red or blue LED fan on the inside. I also tend to like cases that are either full tower or mid tower because almost every component I have has aftermarket parts installed on it. The biggest problem I have is trying to fit my CPU heatsink in the case or that really long video card. Let's take a look at a new mid tower case from Sigma named the Unicorn and see exactly what it has to offer.
Sigma is a rather new brand on the computer hardware scene, but from its products that I have seen, I can definitely say that the company has some unique and innovative products because I have never seen anything like some of them. The company's cases stand out more than anything to me and I'm very interested to see how this Sigma Unicorn case is like in terms of quality, performance, and aesthetics. Will this product alone cement Sigma's place in the computer hardware market as a heavy hitter? All of these questions and more will be answered as we examine this mid tower case.
The Sigma Unicorn comes packaged in a fairly large black box with predominately red writing on it. On the front and back of the box, you'll be shown the case, as well as some of its key features. On either side of the box you'll be able to find the specifications of the case. One feature that really caught my eye was the ability to pull down each side of the case since one side contains a motherboard tray. For someone who is constantly swapping out hardware, a motherboard tray is a must in a case. I can't wait to open the box and see this feature!
The Sigma Unicorn is held in place by Styrofoam to prevent any damage during shipping. Also, you'll find plastic all over the case to protect it from scratches that it may incur.
Now let's take a closer look at the case itself.
