Pros and Cons:
- Nice design.
- USB 3.0 support.
- Windowed side-panel.
- Tool-less drive cages (except the three 3.5″ drive bays at the bottom).
- Good airflow support.
- Good price-to-performance ratio.
- Those red clips inside the case doesn’t work with the all-round color scheme.
- The square-shaped power buttons do not look so good, anything more decent would’ve been better. (Opinion)
The price of the Cooltek GT-04 for both green & orange aesthetic models is 60 Euros, including Value Added Tax (VAT).
And yeah, HAPPY 2016! 🙂
