XPG Starker Mid-Tower PC Case Review


XPG Starker Case by ADATA

XPG has added several computer cases to their lineup in the last several months. One of these cases is the XPG Starker, which is a small enclosure for compact ATX builds. It comes ready to cool out of the box with two 120mm fans; one XPG VENTO 120 ARGB in the rear, and one XPG VENTO 120 fan at the front. Two RGB LED strips are located at the front of the case for extra lighting. Both the rear fan and the front LED strips are compatible with Gen 2 RGB header equipped motherboards. For motherboards that do not have the Gen 2 RGB header, the case includes a built-in lighting controller to cycle through 13 different modes.

Other features include an included vertical GPU mounting bracket, 4mm tempered glass side panel, and an innovative removable-on-rail dust filter. The XPG Starker comes in both black and white variations. We were kindly sent the white variant, which is available online for purchase for $79.99 shipped on Amazon. Let’s take a look at its features and specifications below.
