darkFlash V22 White Mid Tower ATX Case Review

Unboxing and a First Look »

Cases with rotated motherboards are still a bit of a rarity, despite not really being a new design anymore.  Because of that, we were intrigued when darkFlash reached out to us about their V22 ATX mid tower case, their take on the rotated motherboard layout.  darkFlash has been developing a new design language for their cases, moving away from the glass and RGB formula of their earlier products to a more refined styling more in line with the likes of Fractal Design and NZXT.  The V22 is their first ATX case to feature this new styling, alongside the MATX DLM21 and DLM22.  darkFlash offers the V22 in white, black, mint green, and pink.  Offering two pastel colors is a bold move from darkFlash, and it sets their cases apart from the vast numbers of black cases on the market.  Is the combination of a new style and an uncommon layout a winner, or has darkFlash missed the mark?  Let’s dive in and find out.
