The Card Cooler's "Max Cool" Case (Page 1/3)

Back in June we reviewed one of the nicest cases we have ever come across - the Addtronics 6896A. The case scored highly with us due to its unique design and how it has plenty of room for fans and components. Well, the 6896A is back, but this time with the aid of the Card Cooler it is even better than ever. The Card Cooler took this great case, put professionally cut holes on the side and top and laced the inside with a variety of legendary Card Cooler fans. So isn't this just the Addtronics 6896A with more fans? Keep reading...

Before we continue, let me point out that the normal Addtronics 6896A case retails for $132, and the Max Cool version of the case costs $219. However, the prices of the fans that have been added to the case bring the price of the plain Addtronics right up to this level... so the professional blow holes are essentially free.
