GT3-BH Case ReviewPosted on 2007-05-17 12:01:27 by Thomas De Maesschalck
A desirable feature of a LAN PC would be for it to be small enough to carry around. That is exactly what I have to review in the form of a GT3 made by the GTR Tech Corporation. In fact, not only is it small, it is light and comes with a built in handle made for carrying it. Now, you may be saying,” yes, the micro cases do that too”. Well, this case has a rather large advantage as it is the only MicroATX size case that will accommodate a full size ATX motherboard! You are no longer restricted by the rather lame feature set of a MicroATX motherboard, the restricted expansion options, or the often behind-the-times chipsets on them. Another thing, many of the pre-fabbed SFF cases use a proprietary motherboard that is not user replaceable when the chipset in it becomes too outdated. This case will accept most of the latest, newest, and fastest ATX motherboards on the market. That alone makes this case quite future-proof, so you can use it over and over in your builds. Not only that, it will take a full height PCI-express VGA card up to 235 mm in length; this includes the cards based on the nVidia Geforce 8800 GTS GPU, which would make this one powerful PC to haul into a LAN party! A few cards will exceed this length, especially the 8800 GTX cards.
