Introduction

In the market of cases, there are multiple ways to really get the public's attention.  Sometimes more really is just more bells, whistles and lights draws the attention and holds it.  However on the other hand, sometimes less is more.  Clean and simple lines, a straight-forward design, tried and true methods of cooling, all of this combined with all the bays you could need and given an open, easy to maneuver workspace.  Today, thanks to the good people at Sunbeamtech we have an opportunity to look at just one such case, the Tuniq2.

The Case

The first thing that really drew my attention to this case was its sheer simplicity.  The black and silver aluminum finish really is stunning, even though I'm usually a big fan of premodded cases.  The straight, sleek lines, and black mesh screen on the front bezel makes for an awesome sight.  The left side of the case is just a plain black aluminum side panel.  The case also seems quite deep and should offer plenty of space to maneuver around while working.  Let's see what else it has to offer.
