Sentey Arvina GS-6400R Computer Case Review

When it comes time to build a new computer, many people look at changing their current case. Some want a case that is very subtle, others want a brightly colored case that, like Jeremy Clarkson, screams "Powwweeeerrrr". If the latter sounds like what you want, then Sentey may have the case you have been looking for with the Sentey Arvina GS-6400R. But external looks should not be the only thing you look for in a case. More importantly, you want your case to support your components in a way that will increase longevity and provide protection from external influences. With its five internal quick load HDD bays supporting 2.5" and 3.5" drives, quick locking ODD bays, along with many other features, the Arvina has the possibility of being a wonderful mid-ranged Full ATX case.

# It's all about the cooling!realneil 2010-08-25 06:12
With that many large fans inside I'm surprised that it's not already kept frigid. Having to replace the fans is a bust at a 130 dollar price point. I'll stick to my CoolerMaster Cases. They just work, in every way.

As much as I like the overall design of CoolerMaster cases, the damned flimsy power button on the Elite 330 is a disgrace. Do a Google search on "CoolerMaster Elite power button", and you'll see what I mean...

I find the button to feel very sturdy with very little play in the way it moves. Compared to the Antec 900 this cases power button which had a decent amount of play side to side this button feels very well made.
