Full Disclosure: The product sample used in this article has been provided by Sentey.

The Sentey Burton (GS-6500) is a full tower enclosure developed for enthusiasts who desire high performance and a sexy exterior. This case flaunts its multiple LED fans, and LED buttons, turning heads in the process. The Burton, is one of several models belonging to the Extreme Division line of computer cases. The Burton comes in 3 flavors. The GS-6500 in glossy black, the GS-6500B with blue highlights and grills, and the GS-6500R with red highlights and grills. It's pretty easy to glance at the exterior of this case and be charmed into submission. As your jaw drops, your guard is let down, but don't worry, Benchmark Reviews presents an in-depth look at the all black GS-6500 case, from its highly glossy exterior to the bright blue glowing interior.

Sentey's inspiration comes from their philosophy. Performance, quality, innovation and sustainability are combined synergistically to meet their goals of providing high value through design. Sentey is an international corporation currently headquartered in Miami and with a strong Latin American presence. They have manufacturing in Shenzen, China, and an operations center in California.

This computer case shines visually, with a stunning array of fan LEDs, as well as a beautiful array of LEDs on the top console, but ultimately, the true purpose here is to determine if this case is more than just visual appeal. Does the Sentey Burton GS-6500 attain the level of excellence that the computer enthusiast expects?

What a strange name for a company, and the case seems more like a budget oriented box. I probably would have given it a 2.5 for appearance.

Nice review Marc. I think Sentey is a newer player in the case market as I haven't heard of them before late last year; their web site doesn't offer much history either. But from what I've seen in the way of reviews of their products they are serious about their work.

Kudos for your "fan theory" as well. Most folks aren't overly math conscience and this is appreciated.

Yeah the fan area compared to single large or smaller multiple is a good call.

Sentey is indeed a newer player in case market; they've been around for about 12-18 months, maybe more.... nice review here! Not my taste in PC cases, but a good review none-the-less... one question:

What's the CPU cooler used in the build? It kind of looks like a Scythe cooler of some type... if I missed it somewhere in the review, I apologize ;)

Its a Scythe Mugen 3. No formal testing was done using that cooler. The CPU is an Intel Xeon E3-1235 Sandy Bridge @ 3.2GHz
I actually ran it idle for most of the pics without the fan because one of the brackets that holds the fan on the Mugen broke. Later, I had to rig a mounting bracket.

Re: the exterior of the case, man, that is really subjective... All I can say is it looks great for me especially in the dark, so you can see the blue lights. But, it looks best with the left case cover off.

I gave it a high score for looks, but if you say... drop the looks score down to 8.25, then that drops the whole case down a notch.

That's why I always recommend your weighing your own personal values, into the score...

Nice, complete, clear review. This case has some nice innovations, like that top bay cover. The plastic pins for the HD suck. What were they thinking? Now if they were made of nylon, they'd probably last forever and it would have been fine. But plastic? Also confusing is the 80mm fans that you point out. Huh? What were they thinking, indeed. No USB 3.0 port. Go figure. It's a nice case though, except the outside looks like an "Alien" of the "Alien" series movies that got his balls cut off and a buzz cut. lol

"space for expansion cards which measured 13 5/8? (346.08mm) with a simple measuring tape from the backplate to the drive cage."

Dimension per ASUS: 11.5 " x 5 " Inch

Should be more than enough for it.
