Raidmax Iceberg Case Review

Introduction

Iceberg is an all-aluminum mid-tower case from Raidmax featuring four 5.25” bays, four internal 3.5” bays and four 120 mm fans, coming with a terrific price tag of only USD 150 (a bargain for an all-aluminum case) and targeted to mainstream users. Let’s take an in-depth look at this case from Raidmax.

Iceberg can come in two different colors, black or silver. We reviewed the black version. This case uses a different opening mechanism where the side panels are removed by moving them from top to bottom instead of from front to rear; pay attention to the latches present on the side panels.

In Figure 3, you can see the front panel from this case. As you can see, this case doesn’t have a door. This case has four 5.25” bays – which is more than enough for mainstream users – and the top 5.25” bay come with an optical drive “fake” cover, which is great: your optical drive will be installed behind this masks making its “face” to be all aluminum. You can even install a beige drive that it won’t make any difference to the aesthetics of the case, as the mask will cover it. You need to remove the front panel to install optical drives, as we will explain later.

As you can also see, this case does not provide an external 3.5” bay for floppy disk drives and it doesn’t come with any kind of adapter. This is really frustrating. The funny thing is that on Raidmax’s website the manufacturer says that this case comes with two adapters, which isn’t true.

In Figure 3 you can also see one of the 120 mm fans that come with the case. This one is attached to the hard disk drive cage and we will talk more about it later.
