Today we have the Solano 1000 ATX full tower chassis that is geared towards the gamer and power user. The Solano 1000 is made by a new comer to the case market called Azza. They are, however, not new to the computer world as they made their start in 1999 manufacturing motherboards. Earlier this year they made the jump to enthusiast cases and power supplies.
The cases and power supplies that Azza currently have in their line up all seem to be styled with gamers in mind. Looking at their “Information” page there was a simple straight forward company mission statement, “Your satisfaction is our success!” and a short paragraph stating that their goal is to provide the highest quality products of unmatched value, along with exemplary customer support.
The particular case we are looking at today is the Solano 1000 gaming case. The Solano was designed for ease of use and air flow, as fans are installed everywhere to keep your components cool. A 230mm blue LED super fan is mounted on the top for main ventilation. A second 230mm blue LED super fan is built-in on the side panel to facilitate CPU cooling. Two additional 140mm blue LED fans are installed in the front panel to boost the cooling of the HDD cage. Also, a 120mm fan is mounted in the back panel vented to the outside. To sum it up for you, a total of 2x230mm fans, 2x140mm fans and 1x120mm fan work synergistically to provide you unprecedented airflow. Not only does it cool well, but it looks good. The Azza Solano 1000 gaming case is made from high-quality Japanese steel and the interior has a black painted finish on it.
So let’s take a quick look at the specifications for the Solano 1000 before we get too far.
The Solano 1000 comes packed in a sturdy cardboard box with an image showing the whole case in pretty good detail. The sides and back panel sport the case specs and have images showing the inside of the case.
With the box open we can see the Solano is shipped in standard fashion, wrapped in plastic and styrofoam end caps.
