Danger Den Q20 Black Series  Acrylic Chassis Review - PCSTATS.com Danger Den Q20 Black Series Acrylic Chassis Review
Tue, Jan 03 2012 | 9:20AM | Filed under: Cases| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

Some time ago, back when extra hardware wasn`t something that was available to me, I had my first go at a Danger Den acrylic chassis build with the Black 21 chassis. If you want to, go ahead and have a look at how limited hardware and installing air cooling into a chassis designed for water can really bring a slick looking chassis down a peg. With that in mind, with this newly developed chassis there will be a full on custom water cooling loop installed into the chassis to showcase it how it deserves to be, and to give the readers more of what is to be expected when reviewing a product that is specifically driven as a chassis to house water cooling out of the gate. If the Black 21 was a full tower, this new chassis is more of a mid tower just going by the chassis sizing, but don`t let that cloud your judgment. Even though the chassis has gotten smaller than the last solution I looked at, this new design has a couple of things the other didn`t, as well as a better handle in the way the water cooling is mounted into the chassis rather than directly to the face as the Black 21 did. The more obvious changes up front are things like the power button moved to the rear in the new chassis, the acrylic motherboard tray has been redesigned and the PSU has been moved from the top to the bottom. There are a couple of others to mention as well, but I`ve got to save some material for the rest of the review, so if you want to see what those things are, stick with me; I`m sure you are about to like what you see over the next few pages."

Any major computer upgrade generally requires a full software reinstall too. No so if you heed the advice in the guide to Upgrading a Motherboard without Reinstalling. PCSTATS Tips
