Fatty Case Review

Fatty Case Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: The Fatty Case is a complete departure from typical no-name crap cases with their poor design, and tin foil like metal construction.

Air Flow:

The case is very spacious in design and even comes with a small intake fan. The venting on the back is just pushed in, not punched out. An exhaust fan can be located behind the CPU just above the I/O ports for some extra venting of hot air from the processor region. Lastly the side panels have the same pushed-in venting, rather than fully punched vents. This case is just screaming to have some blow-holes installed (which of course you can read about here!).

Usability:

Overall the case is easy to get into, with only two screws on each of the side panels. The front bezel pulls off quickly with no tools required. Activity LED's give you some insight into what your computer is doing at any one moment, and a power switch is easily accessible. The reset switch is one of those which requires a pen to use, but at least it works!

The front bezel also has means for an integrated floppy drive, but not surprisingly we lost the little plastic part which makes it work, so we cannot test out the ease of its use. Lastly the I/O shield comes nicely labeled so you don't have to guess what those three audio jacks really do.

In conclusion the Fatty Case is one of the best cheap OEM cases we seen around. The steel is thick, the box is spacious, and it makes the perfect case to punch full of holes for a more fans and cooling. At $60 CDN it's cheap and even comes with its own small 12v intake fan. Access to the motherboard and the slots is unobstructed, and edges are nice and rounded over. The venting could be a bit better, but with blow holes that shouldn't matter. Unfortunately we can't tell you where to get one (unless you live in Toronto) because the packaging has absolutely no identification. If you know who makes the Fatty Case drop us a line and share the wealth!
