If you are familiar with Sentey, you'll recognize a certain pattern they have when releasing their computer cases. They generally release a style of case and then release a few more with the same style and some minor changes. There will be an R version of the case that has red highlights, a B version with blue, W for white, and so on. In some case series they will also release a V version with a different side panel (usually windowed). In the case of the Optimus series, as well as a couple of other series, Sentey has now released a II version of the case. At Benchmark Reviews, we have a Sentey GS-6000 II Optimus case on hand and ready break down to explore what they've changed on this one.

While I plan on focusing mainly on what has been changed, altered, enhanced, etc. on the GS-6000 II Optimus in comparison with the original, I'll also be looking into the three main areas of focus for any computer case. These areas are price, functionality, and style. No one of these three areas can stand alone and make a fully featured case. There are, of course, inexpensive cases, very functional cases, and stylistically appealing cases all over the market. It is when these three areas mesh, balance, and come together that a computer case really shines.

The Sentey GS-6000 II Optimus is part of Sentey's Extreme Division family of cases. There is a lot of diversity in Sentey's Extreme Division, but all of the cases focus on an enthusiasts need for cooling and good looks. After all, any gamer worth his salt knows that looks > stats, right? In all seriousness, however, Sentey's new spin on the Optimus needs to hold up to a high standard in terms of functionality, price, and style to pass this test. So let's get started taking a look at the Sentey GS-6000 II Optimus Mid-Tower Computer Case.

Lots of people would turn their noses up at a case like this but this objective and very sincere review was very well done and very objective.

Well Done.. When so many are just Kick Ass or Great. This was a solid and uniquely honest review.
