GamerStorm Baronkase Liquid: Our Verdict.
- Full metal construction – no plastic!
- The inclusion of the Captain 120EX RGB AIO with the flowmeter
- The ability to fit an ATX board into what is essentially an M-ATX sized case
- I’d like to see a 7 expansion slot version for full ATX support but I like that size is supported regardless.
I feel the case has been very well designed. The overall aesthetic is very clean and tidy with the full steel construction with the matt black paint job, not mentioned in the video review the case is also available in white!
I like that Deepcool had the thought of adding the ability to mount the PSU in the top of the case behind the cover should you choose to use an ATX motherboard as well as the blanking plate in the PSU’s normal location which is easily removed along with the power pass-through cable should you use a smaller M-ATX or ITX board and want to mount it in the bottom as usual.
I also appreciated the addition of the flowmeter along with the RGB goodies on the included fan and pump.
Another good addition is the removable plate that allows you to install longer graphics cards, remember that it’ll be a lot easier to install the PCI-E power cables easier to make installation easier for you.
At £120 at the time of review, I think that the GamerStorm Baronkase Liquid is great value for money especially considering that Deepcool’s Captain 120EX is bundled and already installed to take care of CPU cooling.
Big thanks to Deepcool for sending the GamerStorm Baronkase Liquid to review!
