Gelid Solutions recently entered the PC case market with introduction of the DARKFORCE mid-tower enclosure. This case will try to wow you with some cool innovative features while keeping to the Gelid Solutions focus. The focus of the company is to give a PC enthusiast a product with great cooling capabilities while also having great aesthetics.
If you look closely at the interior of the Rosewill BLACKHAWK Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, you will find it is exactly the same chassis. Even the top and bottom are the same. Only the side panels and cabling look different.
(Note the mounting holes for the built in 3-pin power modules)... I wonder where I can get those modules?
Hi! I do see the similarities. but I have to say that the CoolerMaster that you mentioned seems very close to the Corsair Carbide 400 as well. It actually has some charcteristics from others that I have reviewed as well.
The CoolerMaster HAF series does seem to have a very similar front bezel to the Gelid Solutions. IMO things seems to start getting different after that. Maybe that is just Gelid Solution putting their touch on the PC case. Below you can see for yourself.
With tooling costs being close to six figures or well over that for some cases it is very common that some chassis by different companies will be the same. This being GELIDS first case, it is highly likely that it is a clone of an existing chassis.
