Total build time on the DX-02B was a breezy 20 minutes, the chassis has a vast interior that allowed the components to be easily dropped into place without issue.

Normally the CPU cooler leaves little room to connect cables to the motherboard, but there is significant headroom here to get hands on with the motherboard.

Airflow around the CPU is nice and clear and with room for an EATX board, you’ll have no issues with dual socket motherboards and dual coolers here.

Cable routing is a little rough around the edges, but it’s more than competent to keep airflow unrestricted within the case and there is enough space behind the motherboard to handle all the cables from a multi-GPU setup and fully saturated storage bays without any issue.

Even our not so small Sapphire R9 270X fit with plenty of room to spare, even with the hot swap PCB’s at the back of the top two hard drive bays stealing up another inch of space.

Side panel back in place and we get a sneaky view of the CPU cooler from the top window, the GPU from the fan mesh and the right window doesn’t really show anything other than cables.

the chassis is a little heavy on the plastic fittings, but the mixtures of aggressive angles and shapes does love it looking pretty cool overall.
