Requirements: Atandard ATX PSU, ATX, micro and mint-ATX motherboard support
The Falcon case, from Game Max, is a fantastic-looking item that comes in three different versions – blue, green and red – with each representing the colors of the pre-installed LED fans.
The Game Max Falcon is a pretty neat case to build your future system in. This midtower measures 202 x 505 x 473mm, and features seven PCI expansion slots, two 5.25″ drive bays, two 3.5* bays and three 2.5″ bays. The PSU is mounted at the bottom of the case, and there are a couple of grommets available at the back for a liquid cooling solution.
The front of the case is almost a solid ventilated section, with at least three quarters of the front of the case being used to vent in air from the included two 120mm LED fans, and the last quarter of the front is taken up with the removable drive bay panels. The top of the case features a pair of USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports, along with power, activity LEDs and the microphone and headphones ports. There are also a couple of fan speed controller switches and a magnetic removable filter that covers the optional top-mounted fans.
Cable management is adequate enough, with plenty of entry and exit sections cut out from the motherboard backplate. The cut-out sections are slightly rounded off too, so they’re not as sharp as some other examples we’ve seen in the past.
The drive bays feature removable plastic trays for both SSD-sized drives and more conventional 3.5″ hard drives. There’s enough room to house a 415mm graphic card and clearance for 161mm CPU coolers. Also, thanks to the decent cable management, you should be able to get clear airflow over the motherboard and its components.
Speaking of air flow, there’s room to fit another three 120mm fans within the case.
The Game Max Falcon is a pretty impressive looking case with its green LEDs and large side panel window. If you include some internal LEDs in your build, you can get the system looking quite spectacular; if not, then you’re still in for a treat with the included front LEDs.
We liked working with the Game Max Falcon. It looks great, has plenty of room inside for everything we needed, and there’s ample room to expand.
