Hex Gear Launches Enthusiast Class R40 Chassis

by - 5 years ago

Hex Gear A40

Hex Gear are a completely brand new entry into the case market opting for stylish and reliable construction on a small form factor. The Hex Gear R40 is a mATX case featuring 4 extruded premium aluminium panels, 3 2.5″ Drive Bays, 2 3.5″ Drive Bays and 5 PCI expansion slots. Furthermore, the R40 offers huge watercooling capabilities via three separate compartments. The main chamber accommodates either a 360mm radiator or 240mm up to 40mm thickness while the top and bottom section manages to fit coolers at a maximum of 34mm. There are also 6 x 120mm fan mounts which provides stunning cooling options for such a compact chassis. Surprisingly, there is ample room for larger aftermarket heatsinks and it has a lot of flexibility compared to other mATX cases.

Retailing for £199, the R40 is built to an impeccable standard and only utilizes the highest grade materials. It is also a modder’s dream and requires assembly on delivery. Even the sheet metal adopts a flat structure which allows for a fantastic degree of customization. Here at eTeknix, we were absolutely thrilled with this case and thoroughly recommend it. While it is a considered purchase, the quality construction and subtle yet beautiful styling make it a perfect companion alongside a high-end compact build.
