Default Tuniq Symmetry 1 Case Review

Tuniq Symmetry 1 Case Review

Tuniq is a division of Sunbeam Tech. This is a very sleek and elegant looking case that comes in both black and silver. It includes a window and options for 4 x 80mm or 1 x 120mm fan(s) up front and 2 x 80mm or 1 x 120mm fan(s) in the rear. As well the case has an analog gauge on the front. Personally I'm not a huge fan of doors on cases but this case has a nice aluminum front door and it opens the right way if you have case to the right like most people. I think this case looks just as good without the door on it. Virtual Hideout did a review on this case.



Pros:
  • Styling
  • Analog Gauge
  • Temp sensor included with gauge
  • Location of UBS Audio/Mic ports
  • Door opens to the right
  • Every drive bay had tool lees setup

Cons:
  • Light weight metal for case
  • 120mm front intake fan difficult to install
  • Larger PCI cards difficult to install with the Tool less setup
This case is available at Direct Canada - $82.97 and at NCIX - $91.42

Looks like a good case for the dosh, but it reminds me a bit of an upside-down TT Kandalf

Yeah I was going to make that comment too. I think it looks good without the door on it personally.
