This is a review of the Noblesse Electric Blue Case designed for overclockers. This case is designed to supply more than ample cooling. Without question, this case provided plenty of case cooling and plenty of room for modding this bad boy. Sleek and classy, giving the end user who wants a cool case in black, without worrying about having black drives to put in it. With the door, you can just hide those components and still use a black mouse, monitor and keyboard. In fact, most users could setup this case to a point were they almost never have to open the door in the first place with the cubby hole at the bottom which I will show you later.

The Noblesse is a roomy case with plenty of room for CDRs and hard drives. Here are the specs for the Noblesse:

  • M/B type : Extended ATX (12" x 13")
  • Drive bays : External 4 x 5.25", External 2 x 3.5", Internal 5 x 3.5"
  • Slot opening : 7 x standard PCI slots
  • Dimensions (mm) : 445(H) x 200(W) x 411(D)
  • Cooling fan : 4 x 80mm (Optional)
  • ATX I/O Shield: 2 provided
  • Access: Side Panel Access
  • That is right folks. The specs on the Colorcases.com website are inaccurate when it comes to the fans. There is room for two front case fans and two rear case fans. That’s four 80mm fans that can be installed and of course if you’re a modder, there is always room for more. This case lends itself to modding as all panels come off. Both left and right side panels as well as the front and top panels all come off. All edges are rolled over making this a cut free case to work with. Even in its stock format as is presented here, the case performed quite well dropping internal case temps by 5ºC over the old 30$ case with less cooling options. It’s a matter of you get what you pay for. And when you buy this case, you are purchasing a cool case with plenty of configuration options and modding options already there. So on we go with the show.

    The case does not come in a plain jane brown box but one from the manufacturer. Plenty of packaging material for it to show up at your door unharmed. It contains a box of parts to go with your system including plenty of screws, slot blanks, and not one, but two I/O plates depending on whether or not you motherboard has the game and sound ports. That is very good since most don’t come with one at all. Only drawback, neither come with an open port for onboard LAN. Since most boards don’t come with one it is not a problem, but more and more are coming with them built in and you will have to cut that out yourself. Its very light tin so it shouldn’t be a problem using a small pair of snips.
