Hansan Systems Space
I've had some good experiences
with Hansan's cases in the past. The Explorer
III sparked a whole new market that previously had been held by very low
quality cases that were big on looks. Hansan was one of the first manufacturers
to couple a solid look with quality components. The Hansan Audi
followed up the act and introduced us to some great features such as front
mounted USB ports and a very good latch design to hold on the cover to the

The case shipped was all silver.
Imagine the case to the right in only the silver color without the colored
accents and you'll get the idea. I think the case actually looks a lot nicer
up close than pictures can show. One thing that surprised me was how heavy
this case was compared to the previous units I've tested. The construction
is very similar to the Audi so I had to wonder where the extra weight popped
up. I think I've tracked one of the improvements down to the 300 W power supply.
Not only does it feature some great internal parts but there are also the
standard fan to exhaust air out the back of your case and now a fan mounted
to the bottom of the power supply to suck the heat away from the interior.
The power supply is Pentium IV compatible and the case features the extra
screw holes to mount a P4 motherboard.
A couple of nice extra touches
were the inclusion of an 80mm intake and exhaust fan. What the pictures can't
show is that the front plastic fascia of the case is actually open at the
bottom to allow lots of cool air to enter the case. Simple, but a lot of cases
don't even take cooling into consideration.
