AOpen Nouveau B-350B Case Review

Postby Apoptosis » Thu Sep 15, 2005 10:30 am

The AOpen Nouveau case is an aluminum ATX Mid-Tower that screams infidelities. With a 350W proprietary Slientek power supply, a clear coated paint job, and speed controlled blue LED ball-bearing fans this is clearly a top of the line case. Read on as we assemble a system in one and give our thoughts.

The AOpen Nouveau will be perfect for the average gamer who may do some mild to medium overclocking and is looking for that elegant and clean external look and feel. With most cases that are deemed 'elegant' comes an impressive price tag. The Nouveau currently carries a price tag of over US$150.00 with the 350 Watt PSU included. However, if you are like me, most of my case purchasing decision for my next LAN rig is based on if the case positively captivates my attention... and the Nouveau did just that!

I'm really enjoying this case. I'm used to a bright case though, so the LEDs don't bother me a bit.

Wow, that actually looks like a decent case!
However, I don't like that huge giant lock thing, the case feet seem too large, and the I think that round front LED is a little large. Other than than the slighly higher price tag, it's a decent case.
Thanks for the unique review! :mrgreen:
