In Win B2 Stealth Bomber ATX Computer CaseMon, Apr 14, 2008 - 12:00 AM
The paint finish on the B2 from the matte finish paint to the warning labels, it just screams military. The pin striping around the edges of the external bay doors reminds me of features you would see on cockpits.
Looking closer to the front we see the hard drive LEDs on the right, the power button in the center, and on the left is a touch sensitive button for the external bay door. (More on this little feature in a minute.)
Looking at the side we can get a good look at the side vent shape.
Looking closer to the front edge of the case we can see how In Win blended function with style. The rescue arrow points to the manual release toggle. This toggle allows the end user to gain access to the external drive bays when there is no power to the case.
Just below that we have the front ports hidden behind a door.
In Win continued the styling cues having the “open” arrows point to the quick release tabs for the side panels.
Continuing around to the back we can see it is pretty much a standard layout. At the top next to where the power supply will be there are two grommets that are for an external water cooler if one should ever be used. This will make for a cleaner installation as many external kits have to go through the PCI slots.
On the bottom of the case we have the feet. The feet are different than most cases; they consist of a hard plastic outer ring with soft foam like inner ring.
Now, going back around to the front of the case we can have a look at the flat out neatest thing on this case: the auto bay door. Yes that is right, the bay door will open on its on with the touch of a button. This is also the one feature of this case that blows the ‘stealth’ aspect of this case. The drive motor is loud and sounds a little under powered.
With the system powered up and the door open you can see the power LED. In Win pulled off a two for one with the power LED. It also lights up the front of the drive bays, and does a good job of it. With the door closed there is very light glow at the bottom of the door.
