Sentey GS-6000 Optimus Mid Tower Case ReviewWed, Jul 06, 2011 - 12:00 AM
The Sentey Optimus GS-6000 is fairly a handsome case after first being removed from the box. The mid-tower is lighter than expected when first being handled. This is due to the metal SECC 0.7mm used in the construction combined with plastic to round out the six sides of the case. The paint is a glossy black much like a piano black that matches the plastic well.
The front of the case is quite stylish and would hold its own if at a LAN party. Top-center as the front of the case angles down the power and reset buttons are next to each other forming a trapezoid underlined in lighting. The angling quickly end hitting the front ends of the case.
The front ports consist of a digital card reader, two USB 2.0 ports, audio ports, and a fan controller. Directly below are the four drive bays bezels in a honeycomb style. The first has a button that would work with an optical drive and the fourth sports the Sentey logo. Below the last half of the front of the case shows off some more style with cool looking cover for the front case fan location (120mm with LED) that includes honeycomb styling and a lighting strip vertically down the middle.
It should be noted that the Sentey Optimus comes with four fans, but the fan controller only works with one fan.
Rounding our way to the first side of the case we see the first big distinctions. The Side of the case moves from plastic to being metal. Mounted on the side of the case is a 180mm fan. The fan on the side panel has a cover in the same design. No windows are available for the side panel or less you are looking to modify the case on your own.
The opposing side is a simple metal panel. This panel still has a nice black glossy paint.
The top side resembles the styling of the front. It is not an over bearing style and the honeycomb mesh styling also works well. A 140mm LED fan also is set below the top.
The read of the case looks pretty standard. I/O cut out comes with no default plate. 120mm Sentey fan is set next to the I/O openings. Two rubber portals for water cooling are also available. Seven black slot covers with red plastic tabs line the middle. Finally the slow for the Power supply opening is at the bottom.
The bottom even has a few features! Four plastic feet get this case off the ground. In between the front feet is a larger holed honeycomb design. A fan can be install above it cooling hard drives. A large drive slots. a large screen takes up most of the bottom that is a cleanable filter. Sentey looks to be holding up to their four words in regards to the exterior sans USB 3.0.
