Sanctuary Micro-ATX Cube Case - Black

Kolink has constructed the Sanctuary micro-ATX cube case to offer your components a safe haven where looking cool is as important as heat dissipation. The cube-style case comes with a dual-compartment chassis for improved cooling and airflow whilst offering windows on each side of the case to view your components in style and blue LEDs to match the theme. An attractive mesh on the front of the case also assists in improving airflow. The low temperatures of this case are matched by a similarly attractive price for such a premium case.

The Features of the Kolink Sanctuary Micro-ATX Cube Case at a Glance

  • Dual-compartment chassis for improved cooling, airflow and aesthetics
  • Acrylic side windows allow an unparalleled view of your components
  • Bottom PSU placement with PSU shroud to separate components and improve airflow
  • 2x 120 mm 15 LED blue fans on the front and a 1x12 cm blue LED fan on the rear
  • Convenient tool free SSD and HDD installation
  • TF/SD card reader on the front panel for easy access to multimedia

The Perfect Cube Micro-ATX Case: Cool & Convenient

Cube cases offer a variety of advantages over larger full-tower cases, they are easier to move for LAN parties, take up less space, are perfect for living room gaming and offer an eye-catching alternative to the standard PC gaming case. Usually, however, a smaller case demands a compromise in the form of heat dissipation and a greater focus on cooling and component selection. The Sanctuary is Kolink's response to these issues.

A dual-compartment chassis separates a significant source of heat production from sensitive components such as your processor or graphics card. Some modern SSDs even respond to high thermals with significant throttling. For this reason Kolink has decided to separate the power supply and drive cages by relocating them to the basement of the chassis. Not only is this good for thermal control, it also helps system builders achieve a clean and lean look without resorting to extensive cable management.

Kolink's attention to detail extends further than the aesthetics of the case however, they also made sure that the Sanctuary is compatible with full-size GPU and CPU coolers. The maximum GPU length is 325 mm, the maximum CPU cooler clearance is 170 mm and the maximum PSU clearance: 170 mm. In terms of optical drives and storage options, the front of the case is capable of holding two internal 3.5" drives and two internal 2.5" drives, increasing to a total of four when using 3.5" HDD bays. Given the form-factor of the case Kolink manages to squeeze in an impressive five expansion slots.

Due to the design of the case and the placement of the side windows, the visibility of the CPU will allow you even more options to give your case the desired look. Furthermore, with careful measurements and component selection the front of the case could potentially fit two 120 mm radiators for AiO CPUs or hybrid-cooled GPUs with the flexible tube connector facing downwards. A 240 mm dual radiator on the other hand would be too broad and could not be installed.

In terms of optical drives and storage options, the front of the case is capable of holding two internal 3.5" drives and two internal 2.5" drives, increasing to a total of four when using 3.5" HDD bays. Given the form-factor of the case Kolink manages to squeeze in an impressive five expansion slots, and further evidence of Kolink's judicious use of space is seen in the relatively large CPU cooler clearance height in this mATX case at 170 mm.

This expandability means that with a Kolink case your upgrade options in the future are equally broad. The I/O panel in the front of the case offers one USB 3.0 port (with USB 2.0 converter), two USB 2.0 ports, HD Audio, a microphone input and a SD/TF card reader.

Good budget case

This is a fairly nice case for the price. I wasn't expecting much really for just £46, but it pretty much ticks all the right boxes (mostly).

Pros:

* Plenty of airflow! It comes with 3 x LED fans pre installed. The front LED fan patterns look nice through the mesh.

* No more GPU sag as the motherboard sits horizontally.

* Nice touches such as removable SSD compartment, and cover for PCI slots to hide the screws.

* Tool-less HDD installation/removal.
Good view through the case courtesy of a window on each side.

* Good length on the various header connector cables.

* Integrated SD & Micro SD card reader.

* Pretty solid construction given the price point and a few large holes for cable routing/management which is always welcome.

* Space in the basement compartment to hide extra PSU cables if you don't go modular.

* Room for tall coolers (but not wide - see cons)

* Room for long graphics cards (watch the PCIe power connector placement though!)

* Soft feet instead of the slippery hard plastic you usually find on cheap cases!

* Dust filters all round, although I'm not too sure how easy it is to remove the front and top filters (PSU filter is easy enough to pop out). I'll probably just vacuum them now and then ;).


Cons (me being picky):

* The tool-less HDD rails are a good idea and convenient to use, but they do feel slightly loose (rattly) and don't have any rubber grommets to dampen vibrations from mechanical drives.

* The various header cables hang down behind the front intake fans slightly obstructing them and could possibly get caught... Luckily I managed to route them along the top of the fans and then down the inner-front side of the case, but it's a bit tight!

* There is room for a tall cooler, but I wouldn't get one that is too wide as it might be a tight fit with the rear case fan in place (also down to the CPU socket placement on the board... Mine is close to the I/O panel).

* It will take a relatively long graphics card, but my Sapphire Nitro RX 470 only just fits due to the power connector being at the end of the card instead of on the top... The connector is almost touching one of the front intake fans.

* Big mesh top, but I can't really see where to mount the fans in the top? It states it can have 2x120mm fans in the top... But where am I supposed to attach them? Not really a deal breaker for me though as the case stays cool enough anyway.

* The included fans are louder than what I'm used to (they use a 3-pin or 4-pin molex connector), but they do push a good amount of air.

Overall a good case for the money, but obviously don't expect perfection or anything outstanding for this price. It does the job and looks nice if you manage to tidy and hide most of the front panel cables ;).

Great service from OcUK as usual too! Cheers
