Default Hiper Osiris Review Comment Thread

Well, after working on this review for MUCH longer than I had anticipated, the Hiper Osiris Mid-Tower Case Review is finally UP!!!!!

Overally, it is a great mid-tower case with some issues that drag it down a bit in my eyes. However, like I mentioned many times in the review; opinions about cases are highly subjective so tell us what you think.

Enjoy the review!!!!

Great review as usual but $200 for a mid-tower case seems a bit much IMO even if it is aluminum. I would of also preferred a acrylic side panel rather than mesh since that allows all the dust to just fly in.

As per the CPU power connector, I think that's a problem with all bottom mounted PSU cases. My Antec 900 is the same. It's impossible to plug in with a TRUE. Luckily the top panel can come off giving you a 200mm hole to stick your hand down through though. I just use an extension since it makes life easier, but my LCD Poster connector is right there too.

The side panel has acrylic BEHIND the mesh.

Oh, guess that's what happens when I don't read carefully

you forgot to mention the problem with expansion brackets. this case has a MSRP of $201 USD, little expensive, not alot of flexibility and nobody needs air grade aluminum :p

Thank you for the review.

I should clarify, you mentioned it to some degree in the review but some reviewers didn't like that there was only 3 expansion covers for 7 slots so they chose to list it as a con. :)

maybe more reviewers need some of this:
