DEEPCOOL TESSERACT SW Mid Tower Computer with Side Window and 2 Blue LED Fans CaseSGCC+PLASTIC+RUBBER COATING

5 out of 5 eggs Correction on Tesseract Case - re metal thickness 02/21/2015

This review is from: DEEPCOOL TESSERACT SW Mid Tower Computer with Side Window and 2 Blue LED Fans CaseSGCC+PLASTIC+RUBBER COATING

Pros: See correction in "other thoughts"

Cons: See correction in "other thoughts"

Other Thoughts: In my original post I typed 18 mm for the steel's thickness. My mathematics goof; that should have been 1.8 mm and that's wrong. I measured the thickness again, looking carefully for a non-rolled edge. Where the power supply goes in I found such an edge. My micrometer says between 0.05 mm and 0.06 mm. I measured this metal thickness a few times. The thickness is about 2 hundredths (0.02) of an inch, or about 25 gauge. A really high end case uses about 20 gauge steel; that's about 1 mm in thickness. Since I've never bought a high end case, or had a customer who wanted such a chassis, I can't tell you how the difference might feel. But, know this; I've never bent the steel on any case I've used for a build.

5 out of 5 eggs Great Case for the Price 02/21/2015


Pros: Case is OK size for a mid tower. Came quickly via FedEx and in PERFECT condition. Just received it. There are places for six 12 cm fans. Plenty of width (7 inches by my inside measurement) from motherboard tray to case side allowing for water cooling. Metal is about average thickness for an inexpensive chassis. I measure 18 mm and that's right fine! Material is carbon steel and yes, it won't take a lot of pressure before it will bend. Printed instructions are EXCELLENT. Hardware package is generous.

Cons: None at this price point.

Other Thoughts: I been building PCs for over 30 years. I never spend SERIOUS $$$ on chassis (cases). My money is reserved for components. Once I build a new PC I never re-use the chassis and it's highly unlikely the box is moved much. Ditto says my customers. This case has rolled edges; no chance of cutting the builder. There's a full 1 cm behind the motherboard tray. That's plenty of room IMO for cabling. For the price this is a GREAT chassis.

Intel Core i7-4790K Devil’s Canyon Quad-Core 4.0GHz LGA 1150 BX80646I74790K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4600
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Wonderful CPU. This is an update.

Cons: None. This is an update.

Other Thoughts: Here’s an update to my original post. A friend told me about the Intel Extreme Tuning Utility and also added that he felt the data I originally submitted for my i7 4790K wasn’t too accurate. So, I installed the utility and ran the test. My benchmark score on my L337 Machine motherboard using a Seidon 120v liquid cooler was 1,013 marks. My highest CPU temperature was 82C and CPU idle temperature was 27C. Room temperature was 20C. System Analysis said, “Your system is performing excellent, nearly everyone with a Core i7 4790K at 4.6GHz scores less. Interesting to me is that my CPU is clocked at 4.7 GHz. I’m wondering if the test didn’t take into account that my FSB is overclocked to 103. My advice to you Newegg readers, buy this CPU!
