ICON Loading...

You want air flow? You got it with the Diablo from ABS. Just make sure that children and small animals are kept away from the case when the system is powered on. It has a 250mm front fan and a massive 360mm side fan to cycle air through the case so efficiently that everything stays cool with no problems. The Advance edition has 2 more fans mounted on a special raised top panel for additional cooling.

Once you get the mobo in you can put down your tools since the rest of the components go in without tools. The 7 expansion slots have individual locking levers. The drive bays, both internal and external use a locking rail system to keep things in place and minimize vibrations.

This case is ready to handle a powerful system and powerful systems need large PSUs. ABS leaves the choice up to you so you can get a unit that fits your needs. Since there is a support bracket that is attached to the drive cage you can go ahead and install an oversized unit with no worries.

  • newegg Superior Expandability with 13 Drive Bays Featuring five 5.25" external drive bays, and eight 3.5” drive bays (one external and seven internal), the ABS Diablo ADV provides superior expandability.
  • newegg Exceptional Cooling Performance The ABS Diablo ADV features an enormous 250mm blue LED fan in the front and a monstrous 360mm blue LED fan on the side panel as well as dual 180mm fans on the top for highly efficient heat dissipation of the hard drives and CPU. With the ON/OFF switch and fan speed control, adjust fan speeds for the optimum balance between cooling performance and noise level.
  • newegg Mesh Side Panel Window The mesh side panel maximizes airflow of the inner system and reveals the cool VR LED lights for added stylishness and eye-catching fun.
  • newegg Convenient Top I/O Panel The ABS Diablo ADV features a convenient top I/O panel for easy access to one e-SATA port, two USB 2.0 and two audio ports.

4 out of 5 eggswow

Pros: ITS BIG!!! still using as my main rig i love it to bits painted the inside all black looks amazing, took off all of the mesh and put a plexiglass window on the side with a 120mm fan right next to my graphics card, cut wire management holes for my psu looks amazing, this case has lasted me 3 builds over 2 years

Cons: side fan was the first to go but not by failing I broke it :( it lasted a year or so, about a week ago both top fans stopped working :( but hey guys its a fan its gonna fail at some point, I lost all of the extra hdd mounting and disk drive mounting rails in a move :O

Other Thoughts: wish they made a abs +2 with better fans a wire management but hey that what moding is for!

2 out of 5 eggsExpensive yet cheaply made

Pros: Big and very roomy. Has a temp gauge on the top panel. 4 fans make the case stay very cool. The lights and size of the case give the "WOW" effect to a lot of my friends. tons of expansion slots and very nice holding area for the HDD, which gets it's own huge fan blowing right on all of your HDD's. Very nice design overall.

Cons: Now the design might be wonderful, but the cheap parts that it's made by makes it fall apart rather easily. After the first week of use the side fan died. About 2 months later the top/back fan died and fell off while moving it after another few months (Not like it matters if it's already broken). The top/front fan ran for about a year, but had to mess with the fan controller on the top to get it to work, and eventually stopped anyways after a day or so being on. The front fan died after about a year and a half, and the controllers for that never worked at all. The front panel fell off, but it was my fault while moving it, but it wasn't to much pressure... so cheap plastic. Cheap materials, yet very expensive...

Other Thoughts: This is definitely not a bang for your buck product. I gave it 2 stars because of it's amazingly huge, and very well designed, but with the wrong materials. The inside of the case is also very nice. Though I don't expect medal to bend/break unless there is some serious abuse. If the plastic would've been stronger, and the components for the fans would've been made properly, it would've been worth a lot more. Now it's an eyesore to even have it, but when it was first out of the box it was beautiful. Even under the best environments I don't think there is much you can do to stop the fans from dying out on you, so your best off getting your own fans for it.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Case

Pros: This case looks good, will definitely stand out from others, lcd on front side and top making it look nice, the case is big and study, installing the case wasn't a problem at all., fan controller on case is very nice.

Cons: this case did not have room for my cpu cooler (CMV8) had to take out the side fan for needed room, the case did not come with a rear fan

Other Thoughts: overall it's a good case, bought it on sale so definitely worth it.

the air flow isn't that strong, when the fan is on max you can actually hear it, but not too loud.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat Case, Bad Wires

Pros: Big case! Excellent room to fit just about whatever you want in there. The hard drive bays are side load with no tools required, and the power supply support seems extremely sturdy.

Cons: It's steel, so it's obviously heavy. Other than that the cables provided to work the fans, lights, and top temperature are completely out of whack! Some cables are way too long, and others are so short you have to undo their neat packaging and possible splice them to make them longer. They obviously didn't wiring problems with different motherboards and components.

Other Thoughts: I read a lot of reviews about the wiring being terrible, but ignored all of the warnings, make sure you can take care of it yourself before buying this case.

1 out of 5 eggsAWESOME!! while it works

Pros: Awesome cooling

Cons: Awesome cooling...when it works. It has been nearly 3 months since I bought it, and I have become a statistic. Yes, the megafan quit working. It doesnt respond and i can't get a replacement. :(

Other Thoughts: They really should sell that megafan separately.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: Great cooling. The hottest my case gets is 84 degrees F. Lots of room and is truly tool less. All fans and leds worked. Very quiet.

Cons: The shortness of the USB And Audio wires were not that much of a problem. Knowing they were going to be to short, I made sure to have enough parts on hand to lengthen them.

Other Thoughts: I would by this case again.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: The cooling is great! I love the tooless case, it's the first I've ever owned. Everything was well labeled and easy to hook up. I liked that it came with zip ties and extra fan and motherboard screws since I'm prone to losing those.

Cons: I couldn't get the front fan to work, the LED powers on, but the front fan doesn't work. Also the on/off and hi/lo controls for the front and the side fans don't work. I checked everything and it looked to be hooked up correctly. The temperature LED also wouldn't work, that too was hooked up correctly.

Other Thoughts: I noticed a lot of people found the length of the audio and USB wires as too short to reach their motherboard. I also saw several reviews saying they were able to get past it, but none saying how, so I'm going to tell you how:

The first thing you want to do is unhook the wad of wires from the clasp against the side of the HD bays. Then feed the wad underneath the power supply bar on the far side of the case. Next take off the top part with the fans. If you look inside, you can see little tabs that need to be pulled to release the top, there are 3 on each side and 1 on both ends. Now cut the zip tie and pull the remaining wires from around the side of the fan, then just pull those straight down and it should reach where you need it to go. I installed my drives at the bottom in order to leave room for these wires to hang out, and eventually zip tied a bunch of stuff to get them out of the way. (Note: This will move the temp wire way down, you can move it up higher by pulling it out.

5 out of 5 eggsGrate Case

Pros: Great room to work with the tool- less is easy to use I don't know what the guy below me is talking about cools great before my cpu was from 30c-38c and gpu was at 150c-168c now i am getting cpu 28c-35c and gpu 112c-130c and the temp. display is nice i have it reading my cpu temp. so I am very happy with my new ABS and also I am a first time buyer from Newegg. i will try to get a video up of my build so every one hear can see how nice this case really is most defiantly a high end case without the price tag :P

Cons: wire management is totally wrong but easy to fix took me about 5 min to redo My motherboard does not suport the highdeff sound on the top :( but that is most defiantly not a con on the case more on my poorniss lol but the only thing is the big fan seems to be more of a teal now and the others a dark blue but i kinda like it to its not a big deal but it might annoy some one

Other Thoughts: i wish new egg would pack it better then the stock box mine came with a big hole in the side but the case was not damaged

3 out of 5 eggsCase

Pros: Fans do create great circulation.

Cons: Had to install a back exhaust fan just to maximize air flow. V/R switches do not work and even after taking it apart and looking at all the hookups it still doesn't work.

Other Thoughts: Lights are annoying but with a little work you can disable them.

5 out of 5 eggsSweet Case!!

Pros: It is a freakin sweet looking case, the lights are pretty bomb for lans and what not. Its massive!! with all kinds of room for anything you want to put in there, and it has phenomenal air flow with great temps

Cons: After like two months of having this bad boy the big 360mm fan on the side died!! Im calling ABS tomorrow and hopefully they hook me up with a new one.

Other Thoughts: Got it on a sweet deal for like 90 bucks :)
