Nowadays, optical drive bays in cases have actually all however gone the method of the dinosaurs. Whenever you do discover one, it’s typically in an ultra-budget design– searching for a more superior case that supports a Blu-Ray or perhaps DVD drive can be rough going.
So our late discovery of the SilverStone Redline RL08 was a pleasure, as it does not make you pick in between your media collection and having an appealing PC case that’s simple to integrate in. As you’ll see in the video above, this special inverted micro-ATX case sports a 5.25-inch external drive bay, while still using a modern-day appearance, much better products (no low-cost plastic here!), and assistance for radiators, lots of fans, and detachable aspects. It’s spacious too, with a volume of 36 liters.
This case’s just genuine disadvantage is the possible dispute in between a thick graphics card and longer optical drives– due to the turned design of the chassis, the bottom PCIe slots of the motherboard sit at the top of the case– however in general, the RL08 ticks most boxes for anybody seeking to handle looks and more old-school elements.
