Default Gigabyte iSOLO 210 Mid-Tower

Gigabyte is well aware that consumers yearning for a quiet PC don't want to give up great looks and functionality. They prove this with their iSOLO 210. In addition to the case's aesthetics, it also turns out to have very impressive construction, especially considering its low price point.

You can read Bill's first review here and discuss it here!

Great review Bill. That looks like a pretty decent mid-tower. Oh, welcome to the staff as well

Thanks! I will say one thing. After reading 50-75 of you guy's reviews over the last 2 weeks trying to prepare my own, you all make it look easy. Glad you like it and I hope to do many more!

Nice review thanks. This looks perfect for me, however my only concern about getting this case is whether a geforce 9800gtx would fit. The graphics card used in the review is 24cm and I can see there is additional space to the side of the card, but as the one I want to get is 26.7cm I can't be sure. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I would say it would fit. The real issue is if the way the SATA connectors are arranged on your motherboard. I thoroughly enjoy this case, it is still in use today for my HTPC. It is a very quiet and efficient unit.

Default Great Coolermaster clone

-- I have owned the iSolo case for some time, and am also very pleased with it. I dont know if anyone is aware of this, but this is essentially the same case as the coolermaster 534, which I also own. I love Gigabytes front panel design for this already good design. I consider it a little higher grade version of the Coolermaster design, and bought it specifically for its classy front bezel and mesh side panel which seems to work quite well. Only odd thing about this case is the lack of a reset button and HD light. I knew this going in, and simply added an HD light to the front, and a reset button to the rear of the case as I didnt want to spoil the looks of the bezel too much.
