Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Scythe's Fenris Wolf chassis - Scythe's Fenris Wolf chassis
Thu, January 29 2009 | 12:32PM | PermaLink Feedback?
www.pcstats.comDespite its silent performance though, we’re still far from convinced by the Fenris Wolf, with the easily dented and deformed panelling our primary concern. Scythe seems to have totally omitted reinforcing any of the case’s panelling with the usual methods and it’s clear that this isn’t a case that’s going to stand up to much wear and tear or even multiple fittings without showing some very obvious signs of degradation. It’s a shame really as the black anodised aluminium Scythe has used feels and looks great – it’s just not strong enough without being reinforced in some way. The Fenris Wolf isn’t the easiest case to put together either, with the rubber grommet mounted hard drive rack particularly frustrating to build and the mount into the chassis. On more than one failed attempt at mounting the test system hard drive came close to being hurled across the room in frustration – it’s just a million miles away from the easy drive mounting trays used in Cooler Master or Antec chassis and while we appreciate the excellent vibration reduction it can offer, we’re not sure it’s worth the bother. Again, it’s a shame as Scythe has gotten the basics right with the roomy interior and easy PSU mounting, it’s just spoiled by the irritating hard drive mounting.
