Bij Sharky Extreme hebben ze een review online gemikt van de 3DCool Tornado 1000 kast. De Tornado 1000 is met zijn goede cooling mogelijkheden perfect geschikt voor overklokkers. Hieronder wat meer info:
Overclockers are probably licking their chops at the cooling potential of the Tornado 1000 case. After all, a high ambient case temperature is the bane of any performance nut trying to run peripherals and CPUs way outside their rated specs. After all, what good is a large CPU heatsink/fan or Peltier cooler when your case has no way to exhaust the buildup of heat? The four internal cooling fans and spacious case design ensure that airflow is kept to a maximum and heat buildup remains at a minimum. If you wondering how to connect all those cooling fans to the power supply, 3D Cool.com includes several Y-adapter plugs to make sure the installation is a breeze.
Not only is the Tornado 1000 a cooling demon, it's also a very high quality case. Opening up the Tornado 1000 won't require a screwdriver, since it features thumbscrews for not only the case itself, but also on the removable motherboard tray, the internal 3.5" bay and the removable 5.25" bay cover. Other amenities include swappable 3.5" bay faceplates (one standard, one stylized), a very deep design (19.75") for maximum airflow, and a deep metal construction for enhanced thermal conductivity and dissipation. To top it off, the Tornado 1000 actually looks good, and will definitely make a great home for your hotrod components.
The Tornado 1000 case also sports a very innovative design. While most PC cases have three removable panels, two on the side and one on the top, the Tornado 1000 has only two removable panels. The side panel accessing the motherboard and internal components is standard, but the usual top and side panels are integrated into a one-piece unit. When opening the case for a quick tweak or upgrade, this design is very stable and you don't have to worry about the other side panel falling off by accident. The only issue I found is that the dual blowhole fans are on the standard side panel, and the attached power cables can make it needlessly difficult to remove.
