If slanted faux vents with LED lights in them and a front grill say Steampunk to you then the DEEPCOOL Steam Castle might just be up your alley. On the other hand if sturdy construction, colour matching and a design which is ornate yet functional is closer to your preference then this might not be the case you are looking for. Style design aside, the case does sport well designed filters, large fans to lower the noise generated and providing cooling performance that was far better than [H]ard|OCP is used to seeing. The MSRP is also under $100, giving you a unique looking and well performing enclosure without a large investment.
"It is one of those moments that you go, "Uh, what?" Deepcool Industries comes to us today with its Steam Castle micro-ATX and mini-ITX computer case for smaller system configurations. While your definition of "steam-punk" may differ from Deepcool's, one thing for sure is this case is unique in its look. How does it perform however?"

I like it! Not enough to
I like it! Not enough to spend cash on a case I dont need, but If I was re-doing my main rig, AND there was some reason not to re-use my current case, this would be right up my alley……. if it were just a little better filtered. Heavy cat home, there cant be a single clear intake.
