GMC H-80 ATX Mid-Tower Gaming PC Case Review

GMC's slogan is "Design and Innovate" and their H-80 definitely shows a lot of innovative design features. The GMC H-80 is an ATX Mid-Tower case that is solidly built and has plenty of features to make for a great system build. Four included fans provide plenty of airflow to keep even high powered systems running along nice and cool.

GMC might have started in this review as being a relatively unknown brand (it's the first of their products we've reviewed here at LR), but to me they've come away with a great first impression. The construction of the case is one of quality, the whole case feels very sturdy, and there was practically no give when I tested the rigidity of the side panels. GMC's slogan is "Design and Innovate" and their H-80 definitely shows a lot of innovatively designed features. The GMC H-80 is an ATX Mid-Tower case that is solidly built and has plenty of features to make for a great system build.

Great review and glad to see some competition.

I do have one request if the system is still up. Could we get a shot of the backplate cutout, with the system fully setup? It looks plenty big but only one way to be sure.

Thanks

In my opinion, that case is ugly. And GMC reminds me of General Motors, which explains the design of the case.
Intel Core i5-3570K @ 4.2Ghz @ 1.16V (CPU-Z + LinX)
Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H F14 BIOS

That looks like a taillight on the bottom front of the case. Way too stylized for my tastes.

GMC's slogan is "Design and Innovate". Right, the two cases I have seen from them are "toy like and gimmicky". A fan door, wow....

Sorry, the system is no longer up, but if you judge the size of the cut-out against the motherboard stand-off locations in the review pictures, and then look at where the stand-offs are on the motherboard on the installed page you can see that there was plenty of room to access the CPU socket (at least on this particular motherboard used for review).
