Introduction
Hardware Secrets Silver Award

The Blackstorm is a mid-tower case from Raidmax, offered in two color options, black or white, both with blue trim and fans. The unique feature of this case is that its motherboard tray is attached to the right-side panel, and comes off the case together with the panel. Costing USD 80, it promises a good cost/benefit ratio. Let’s check it out.

We reviewed the black version of the case.

The side panels can be easily removed by lifting the existing latches. The right-side panel has a mesh for an 80 mm fan, while the left-side panel has a huge mesh and comes with a 180 mm fan that glows blue when turned on. This fan comes with a standard peripheral power connector, so you can’t monitor its speed. The manufacturer doesn’t publish the technical specifications for this fan. This fan can be replaced by a 120 mm model, but we doubt that anyone will perform this downgrade.

This case doesn’t come with an air filter for the left-side mesh.
