Addtronics W8500 Workstation Chassis
Addtronics W8500 Workstation Chassis - PCSTATS
The W8500 WTX chassis is about one of the larger workstation housings available. Size isn't the only good thing about it, it comes with all sorts of goodies...

The last picture I have for you is of the rear of the tower. I saved it for last because you will be seeing this again later down the road.

Note the black marker outline towards the center left of the rear panel. If I have to tell you what is going to go in there, you've got problems. This is some seriously thick steel though, and that is why it is still only sketched in ink and not a gapping hole. What can I say, I am a greedy little bastard. The included 300watt PSU just isn't enough, and why not when you have that large blank rear plate section to put in another one!

Now there are good things, and bad things about this case. The only bad ones I could come up with are the $300+ price tag which puts it out of the budget hobbyists grip, and the sheer size of it which will take up the back 40 of your pad for sure. The upside to those is that you get a seriously strong case, strong enough for my lazy butt to cruise my garage on for hours on end (yes I actually RODE the case). Hey, you would to admit it. Also with all that acreage inside you shouldn't run out of space to upgrade. Other strong points are the easy off panels for quick access, all those lights to lull you into a hypnotic state, beautiful aesthetics, oh and did I mention you can ride it?

Would I recommend this case to you all? Damn skippy, that is if you have 300 bones to drop for it (add some for shipping too). When you just have to have the biggest, loudest, and most maneuverable case out there, get the W8500 and you're sure to be in for a treat.
