Video Review #707: Tuniq 2 Mid-Tower ATX Case

The Tuniq 2 case does have some excellent features. One of the best things about this case is the layout inside. There are three 120mm fans that provide excellent cooling power. There is also a plastic ducting system that assists in cooling. Also, the power supply gets mounted at the bottom. There are plenty of drive bays, but the way the 5.25" drives are installed is odd. It's a steel case for the most part, so it's fairly heavy. Watch the Video to find out more...
