This gaming desktop has a very classy but simple outfit. Only by its sorbet looks, it can impress a lot of people.

Some glossy black-colored plastic has been used there. So, to figure out this logo one needs to observe the front panel of the chassis with great attentiveness.

At the side panel of the case, there is a glass panel and the quality of the glass is quite good.

This glass panel is the gateway to access the core hardware section of the product.

To remove the glass panel and to get access to the internal section of the chassis, one needs to remove the screws that are located at the rear section of the case.

This process is very simple and one who has some basic knowledge about the hardware of a computer can easily upgrade or modify the configurations of this device.

As the internal section of this PC is easily visible from the outside, the cables that are used in the chassis are very professionally managed.

And to maintain the sober design, the users have to manage the wires properly, while upgrading or replacing any component in it.

The design of the upper panel of this chassis is very interesting.

At the front section of the upper panel, there are some USB ports, which can be used by the users very frequently to connect various peripherals externally to the PC.

In the rest of the part, there is no solid plane. Some bars are placed there and they are placed in such an order, which gives the entire panel a ‘V’ shape.

For this particular design, this PC has sufficient airflow inside the case.

And on the chassis, there is a handle, which is very unique. By grabbing this handle, the users can move this PC from place to place very easily.

As ‘processing speed’ is one of the major considerations in gaming desktops, SSDs are mostly used in these products.

An SSD can offer faster and efficient performance than the traditional mechanical HDDs.
