The fact may be that the Tt Swing is based on simplicity when it comes to its design, yet as far as its features are concerned, the Tt has come up with some really interesting additions to its case, additions that will satisfy any potential buyer. Being light years ahead from the default stock cases people are used to procuring along with a new retail PC buy, Swing's features make up a good reason to render this case one of the primary targets in the shopping list of the consumer who is really a fan of moding.
Now let us have a look at these features, one by one...
- Piano Coating Front panel. By reflecting what is all around it like a grand piano, the Front Panel, as discussed above, offers a pretty impressive look to the case.
- Audio and Speaker. There are two ports on top of the case, the Audio and the Speaker ones, a quite handy addition...
- 12025 Fan. A 12 cm cooling fan is installed in the rear (exhaust) escorted by a fan holder placed at the front (intake) plans to ensure low operating temperatures.
- IEEE 1394. The IEEE 1394 firewire slot in the front panel resides next to the Audio/Speaker and USB ports and it is more than welcome.
- USB 2.0. Front panel Dual USB 2.0 ports.
Apart from these basic features, the Swing also offers:
- A Transparent side panel, enabling a straight clear view of the interior. With proper illumination and moding, it should look quite impressive by the end of the day.
- Tool Free Installation when installing 5.25" & 3.5" devices, with the aid of sliders adjustable to them, and a patented sliding rail design, will render any tools unnecessary, reducing thus installation time to minimum.
- Thumb-screws are featured to exclude any inconvenience while opening the Side Panel, and that means screwing as well as unscrewing it, a task usually undertaken when a new device is being installed.
- EMI Protection spring which applies certain pressure on the side panel for perfect fit.
- Midi tower
"Midi Tower? Will all my stuff fit?"
It is an indisputable fact that the TT "Swing" is a really versatile case, with more than enough extra bays and room to cover every need should it occur, not to mention the fact that it is an SLI enabled motherboard, as is the case in this review.The thought that it can displace a full tower case must never cross your mind as this is not what the Swing has been designed for. But it sure does its job.
|Here you can clearly discern the 4 x 5.25" and 2 x 3.5" drive bays... notice the marble floor pattern reflected on the "Piano coating"...pretty impressive...|
In addition to the Exterior drive bays, the Swing also holds 4 x3.5" Internal drive bays.
Quite a handful of features, but what about the case itself? Moving on to the next page, we will see a more detailed view of the case exterior and-mainly-interior environment.
