We all know Danger Den for their high performance watercooling systems, parts, and accessories. But, nowadays you can also purchase custom PC cases built to your own specifications! That’s right, you can tailor every aspect of your acrylic case from the color, fan grills, and custom graphics.

We all know Danger Den for their high performance watercooling systems, parts, and accessories, but nowadays you can also purchase custom PC cases built to your specifications! That’s right, you can tailor every aspect of your acrylic case from the color, fan grills, and graphics. We saw many of their custom cases at this year’s Quakecon so we gave them a call and they provided one of their Black Series Tower 21 cases for us to review. We’ll show you the entire build from scratch and give you our expert opinion on how this case handles a mid-range gaming rig with basic watercooling.
The Danger Den Black Series 21 Case is highly customizable and incorporates a unique mid-tower form factor that is unrivaled by any other modern PC cases available today. The most unique aspect of the Black Series 21 is its ability to house a triple 120mm radiator configuration on the front panel and a dual 80mm radiator on the back panel. If watercooling isn’t in your budget, this case also works well with air-cooled heatsinks up to seven inches tall.
