In 2008 a company was founded in Hong Kong: GELID Solutions. The founders come from an extensive PC cooling and IT background. Makes sense the name GELID was chosen, meaning icy! A Swiss management team is in place running operations. This makes me excited to see what GELID Solutions has put in their first mid-tower case, DARKFORCE . I hope it has the fun of an early Jackie Chan movie and the precision of a Swiss time piece.
The DARKFORCE mid-tower comes into a saturated field of mid-towers made for PC gamers and enthusiasts. Gelid Solution will need to take a unique approach to find ways to distinguish itself from the competitions at the entry price of $120 in the US market. After an overview of the specifications, it looks like Gelid Solutions has used its past experiences to put something a little different into this product. Cooling versatility is certainly at the forefront, as you will see in this review. A group of Hong Kong Modifiers called DIY Forces also get an assist in helping Gelid Solution with the DARKFORCE.
We as PS builders always want peace of mind when purchasing our next components. Gelid Solutions has a nice two year warranty in place with the DARKFORCE. Gelid Solutions support has stated that the warranty will cover RMA and defective parts for this model. The steel frame case with plastic exterior and a clear acrylic window comes in at 20lbs. It shipped to me fully boxed at 22 lbs.
