The KX is a functional, elegant, as well as inexpensive standard mid tower. Two external bays for the installation of an optical drive are available. Appropriate peripheral devices can be connected quickly and easily from the front. The lower part of the front is dominated by the colored MESH-elements, which allow for a very effective cooling of the HDDs and the installed hardware. The ODD quick locks are either in red, green, blue, orange, or white, depending on the model.
The Power- and HDD-LED are located in the red strip at the top of the front. The Power-Button is located to the right of the USB connectors. A storage compartment is located in the front of the top cover. You can store and charge smartphones or MP3 players, using the easily available USB ports. The compartment can also be used for external hard drives or digital cameras.

The KX features a ventilation system suited for this price level. Included is a rear mounted fan, which helps removing the heat from the inside of the case. Another fan can be mounted behind the front cover. The side panel offers two additional mounting spaces for fans. The cooling performance of existing VGA cards and CPU coolers can be improved and optimized by installing fans in the side panel.…more
