Improved Features

As an updated version of the Kolink Observatory design, the Kolink Observatory Y aRGB has improved features and support. As such, this case is user-friendly whilst still retaining that premium aesthetic. The front panel has been manufactured from tempered glass and elevated from the frame by side ventilation, providing airflow to the chassis. This panel showcases three of the pre-installed fans, providing a splash of colour against the matte black finish.

Utilising high-quality build materials, the Kolink Observatory Y aRGB offers great support and stability for all the hardware you install. The frame and panelling are manufactured from 0.7mm SPCC steel, providing a robust structure for the chassis.

Extensive Cooling Options

The Kolink Observatory Y aRGB has four, pre-installed Kolink Umbra PWM/aRGB 120mm fans. Three are mounted upon the front panel, whilst the last is upon the rear panel. As PWM fans, their speed scales to match the workload – using higher RPMs during intensive workloads and fewer revolutions when not needed for quieter operation. This bolsters the airflow provided by the ventilation and mesh top panel.

Alternatively, there is extensive support throughout the chassis for both fans and radiators, making the Kolink Observatory Y aRGB great for custom water-cooling. The front panel accommodates three 120mm or 140mm fans. The panel could alternatively cater for 240mm, 280mm, and 360mm radiators. Upon the top panel, there is space for either three 120mm fans, two 140mm fans, or up to a 360mm radiator. Finally, the rear panel can hold a single 120mm/140mm fan or radiator whilst the PSU shroud cover has mounts for two 120mm fans. Additionally, there is clearance for a CPU cooler up to 175mm thanks to the spacious interior.

Hardware Flexibility

With its specially curated interior, the Observatory Y aRGB grants you incredible flexibility when it comes to the hardware you install. The backplate can hold all motherboard form factors, including E-ATX, and is supported by seven expansion slots on the rear panel. This chassis is compatible with the Kolink Vertical GPU Kit, catering for vertically mounting graphics cards. With clearance for up to 380mm long cards, this case can accommodate most triple-slot GPUs currently available.

Below the main chamber is a dedicated PSU shroud, which has a removable panel to grant easier access to this narrower section. In the shroud is space for an ATX power supply, up to 190mm long, and a drive cage that holds two 3.5” HDDs or two 2.5” SSDs. What’s more, there are mounts for three 2.5” SSDs upon the rear side of the motherboard backplate – truly offering extensive and flexible support for your storage solution.

Cable Management and Connectivity

Helping to keep the interior of your gaming PC tidy, the Observatory Y aRGB has a dedicated area behind the motherboard backplate for cable management. With 27mm of space and three Velcro ties, cables can be maintained and easily routed to where they need to be.

Directly above this section is the I/O. Situated to the right-hand side of the top panel, this features two USB 3.1 and one USB 2.0 ports, as well as two jacks for audio and microphones, power buttons, and an RGB controller button.

Excellent Case - Be careful with triple height GPUs

by Peter star_border star star star star

Overal an excellent case, if you are using a GPU that is only 2 bays tall this case is perfect and would likely be 5 stars. However, if your graphics card is taller than 2 bays (I have a Sapphire RX 7900xtx Nitro+ that is 3 bays tall) the built in supporting bracket doesn't quiet slide low enough to allow the card to be installed. This can be resolved by removing the support using the 2 thumb screws and swapping it to the otherside of its runner and remounting it with only 1 thumb screw low enough to support the graphics card, takes only a few seconds and once the GPU is mounted its almost invisible. Working in the case is effortless with ample cable access points and lots of room to run the cables behind the motherboard tray resulting in a very clean install. The rear area of the case also has several velcro straps to help manage the cable looms. I have the Gigabyte Aorus B650 Elite AX running a Ryzen 7 7800x3D with a Kolink 240mm AIO mounted to the top of the case. With the fans all set at 40% speed there is ample airflow for average sustained workloads with almost silent operation. If you plan on air cooling this case will support large CPU air coolers as there is a lot of space above the motherboard to the glass side panel. In prolonged gaming sesssions the fans do increase in speed and noise, but only marginally once you tweak the curves whilst still maintain a very quiet system. The only very minor gripe with this case is the Kolink ARGB hub that comes with it, although easy to install and cable up it can be a little fickle setting up, mine kept dropping certain light groups and the only way to restore functionality was to unplug and reconnect the USB header on the motherboard between system reboots. But once setup and working, it has kept working. Pros Allows clean sleek designs with excellent cable management Good airflow and allows almost silent operation even under stead load Support for big GPUs (both height and length) Nice case to work in, ample space and no sharp edges Lots of options for fans and AIOs Cons GPU support bracket, although an excellent feature, doesn't support the very tallest of 3+ bay cards Kolink ARGB hub a little fickle but does work Would certainly recommend and build in this case again
