Montech Has Released A High Performance PC Case: The Air X ARGB

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP

Montech recently announced the Air X ARGB, which is the next PC case in Montech's Air series of PC cases. The Air X ARGB has some fantastic features like a Diamond Mesh front air intake, a 6-port ARGB fan controller, and three pre-installed fans for some excellent cooling, this case has two 200 mm fans installed on the front of the case as an air intake, and one 120 mm ARGB fan as an exhaust.  Air X ARGB has a wide range of features that enhance the already fantastic design besides the Diamond front mesh, and these features are a tempered glass side panel and a 6-port ARGB fan controller. The tempered glass side panel uses a new sliding mechanism that stops the need to drill four holes in each corner of the glass. This new sliding mechanism allows for more structural strength.  For more specs it can be found at  https://www.montechpc.com/en/products_detail.php?nid=153&s_ok2=

I’d like to see testing.  Those are some big big fans up front.  They’ve got decent looking filtered airflow, but large diameter fans like that are kinda known for abysmal static pressure.  While it LOOKS like a good idea I’d want confirmation that those fans can handle the static pressure requirements imposed by the filtration.  I mean the SHOULD of course.  The average engineer would be simply affronted at being force to design a device that didn’t work. The problem is marketing has a habit of getting in there too and marketing in general has a rep for not caring if something actually works or not.

Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

I have a case from the series before this, The Montech Air 900 ARGB and it is by far one of the best cases I have used. My monitoring program says that once up to operating temp for cpu and gpu it never really increases (anything concerning) no matter the load I am throwing at it.
