Tagan A+ El Diablo Advance Case Review

Hardware Secrets Golden Award

Introduction (Cont’d)

In Figure 6, you can see the top panel from El Diablo Advance with its two 180 mm fans. These fans use 160-mm blades and you can control their speed through a knob also available on the top panel (see it in Figure 7).

Besides the traditional microphone input and headphones output jacks and two USB ports, this case has an eSATA port and a knob for controlling the speed of the two top fans on its top panel. The thermometer is available right below them, on the rectangular black part shown in Figure 7. The two USB ports are located apart from each other, allowing you to connect two “fat” USB devices at the same time without any problem. We think this case could have come with four USB ports and a FireWire port wouldn’t be a bad idea.

The thermometer comes with a probe containing a thermistor that must be installed on the component that you want to monitor the temperature, like the CPU, the video card, the hard disk drive, the motherboard chipset, etc. Of course you can also use it to simply monitor the temperature inside the case.

The rear panel can be seen in Figure 8. The power supply goes on top of the case and there is a space for installing an optional 120 mm fan that doesn’t come with the product. This case has seven expansion slots and no holes for external water cooling solutions.

Now let’s see how El Diablo Advance looks like inside.
