Take a look at any case section at your favorite e-tailer or brick and mortar computer shop and the choices available today are overwhelming. Full tower, mid tower, small form factor, aluminum, steel and the choices go on and on. There are a few fundamental basics that a case should have; first and foremost, good airflow. Then we look for ease of use when swapping out components and performing general maintenance, enough room for all your components, a well thought-out layout and finish it off, it should have an aesthetically pleasing exterior. With all these, you should be set for a while with your case. A well thought-out purchase will, in most cases, survive a few major hardware overhauls.
The X-Supra G Type case is a mid tower case packed with features. With a large side window, tool-less chassis, and room for Standard ATX, Baby AT and Micro ATX form factor motherboards, will the X-Supra make the short list?
The X-Supra comes in a striking box showing exactly what the case inside will look like. Apevia uses one box for both product lines of their cases, showing the windows version and the massive 240mm fan version, which ultimately means cost savings for the consumer. A black dot sticker shows which case is inside.
Inside the box, we get the first glimpse of the X-Supra protected by Styrofoam for bumps and bruises and a plastic bag to protect the finish.
Stripping the case of the remaining packaging reveals the extra step Apevia went in protecting the glossy finish of the front bezel and side window from scratches.
