AOpen included a 350W power supply (ATX-350GU) with the A600 case which
should be good enough for most users out there. Personally I would have expected AOpen include something
a bit larger, as 350W for today's computers is cutting it tight.
Speaking of power, the front power button also glows
several different colours; very cool!
There are three LEDs behind the power button (one red, green and blue), and the different colour
combinations, and intensities translate into a nice mix of colour up front.
We were happy to see that the A600 has large
feet on the bottom of the case, the last thing you want is for your PC to fall to the ground because it
was knocked over. The feet swivel 360 degrees so you can set them to stick out for
extra stability if you want, or tuck them in under the aluminum chassis
so they're out of the way.
With case modding gaining
in popularity, the A600 also includes a factory pre-installed window which is a nice touch. Having a
case window is great but it looks like perhaps some of the AOpen engineers were rushed
when designing it...
First the case window
is too small and it's set too far back on the panel. Since PC's are often set
next to the monitor, or placed towards the back, all you are likely to see are
the expansion slots.
Perhaps AOpen could make the window a bit larger so one
could see the CPU area a little easier when the case is sitting on the floor, or
beside a monitor.
