I have to say I was pretty impressed with how gorgeous of a design this case is, not only is it original in its own rights, it looks really good to with a ton of different modding options. The paint is sprayed very nice and gives a great shine off of it, the side panel has a blue mesh covered filter to allow good air flow to the inside of the case, the front shows off the 5×5.25 bay drives you can install on this case. The front bottom is a dust filter as is pretty much the entire case has some sort of filtration on it which I was kinda impressed with it.
The top houses a pretty neat control panel for everything on the computer, this case is perfect for any media buffs out there, It has a standard power button, reset button, 4 Fan on and off switches, a full card reader for 5 different cards including mini SD, then there is the slide panel witch accesses the port options on the case, audio, 4 USB ports, e-SATA, and SATA. They included a wire in the package we will get to in a moment and you can plug any internal hard drive to it in the top and hook in a hard drive.
Burton GS-6500 comes with a pretty neat hardware bundle, they actually give you your own toolkit for assembling the computer. They also added in a dust towel, sata and power cable for the top port connector and a brochure. Inside the case is just as impressive as the outside of the case to me. I really like the video card cooler fans and how they lock and swivel out also helps for working on the case. Although I was surprised that the theme doesn’t match inside as that would have been nice and really helped with the flow of the case.
The hard drive cluster is completely removable or you can remove them separately by using the red button on the front.The drive caddies are made up of plastic on the sides and a metal tray inserted into them for some added strength. With 5 hard drive bays it will be hard to run out of space for drives with this case.
The inside of the case is extremely well built, motherboard tray has a cutout for mounting brackets without having to remove the motherboard, you can rest assured your hardware is well protected inside this case. Also shown are the 2 L.E.D. 4 inch fans that when closed blow cool air directly onto your graphics cards and pull the cold air from the filtered side panels, I really liked this feature and with the push lock mechanism it stay tight in place when closed. There is also room for one more 140mm fan on the bottom of the case once the power supply is installed.
OK, so lets take a look around inside now. Looking inside we can see the rear of the case is equip with a 120MM blue Led fan and 7 hardware less slots for peripherals, normally for me the clippies never work either my card is not shaped right or they are just to weak, not the case with the Burton, WINNING!!! I was able to slap in my GTX 580 with no problems and no screws and I was very confident it wasn’t going anywhere it also secured in my Killer Nic card no problem, I really checked to make sure they wouldn’t come undone too. The top of the case also houses 2 120mm led fans although none of the fans can be changed to a different size.
