|Sonex 6010 Review at coolingtechnique.com|
April 24, 2012
The Spire Sonex 6010 proved to be a good case, aesthetically appealing and non-trivial. The
materials, especially those used for the front, are of excellent quality as well as the painting is of excellent quality that allows a quick and easy mounting without worry of causing significant damage to the aesthetics of the plates that also use the rounded cut-resistant in accordance with European regulations for the safety of this kind of empty homes products. The weight is minimal, but at the expense of the thickness steel parts that because of the thickness in some points were already deformed at the time of delivery of the product even if the traction had been minimum as well as the deformation.
The presence of the generous size of the window behind the cpu, convenient to replace the heat sink or when the waterblock is a backplate that will allow us to perform routine maintenance without having to dismantle the entire system, thus losing several hours. Comfortable even the windows for the passage of the wiring, and excellent use of the internal spaces, with the possibility to mount video cards quite long, while maintaining the ability to mount three hard drives mechanical or solid state with the appropriate adapters to reduce the bay 3.5 "to 2.5".

The SONEX 6010 is an honest box. It asks 50 € from the buyer and gives him several things lacking expensive boxes. It features black interior with paint, holes in the motherboard tray for both the heatsink and for tidying up the cables and enough space for storage.
The box of the SPIRE promises appearance, functionality and privacy. The appearance is something subjective. Some people like it and some don't. I personally like it, it's not something fancy, and it's plain and simple. Regarding privacy, it does so, and very well indeed.
The two supplied fans are very quiet. Overall, when the computer turns on, it must be quiet to hear it. In normal conditions it is practically inaudible.
On the other hand, 2 usb ports on the front I / O panel is not much. Negative is considered the lack of port firewire. Generally it is a worthwhile proposal to SPIRE at the boxes. Certainly not with the eyes causes the appearance but perhaps that the prospective buyer wants it.
Ignoring the few design flaws, would characterize as a respectable opponent in the battle for supremacy in the low budget PC cases, by adding more and more suggestions. The box we tested in this review, despite some shortcomings, is a very good box, which does what it promises.
