BALANCE

BALANCE

This feature-rich Midi-Tower case may have a stunning exterior, but behind this facade lies a lot of space for powerful gaming hardware. All this gaming goodness can be admired through the tempered glass side panel, and as it supports motherboards up to E-ATX in form factor, there will be plenty to look at. A thoughtfully included PSU shroud also helps users stash away unsightly cables. The front of the case, with its fine mesh and air vents, helps ensure not only good airflow, it also helps accentuate the digitally addressable RGB-LED strip and the look of the case as a whole. A switch on the I/O panel allows the lighting to be controlled. Alternatively, the strip can be connected directly to the motherboard and controlled that way instead. The overall ventilation of the case is also helped by the presence of a fine mesh with integrated dust filter on the top. A pre-installed 120 mm fan is also equipped with dARGB lighting.

Kolink Balance: Plenty of Space for Powerful Gaming Hardware


Even though the outer dimensions of the case are those of a Midi-Tower, the Balance uses its clever design in such a way as to make space for even an E-ATX board if necessary. Graphics cards up to 370 mm in length will fit comfortably, and even tall CPU coolers up to 162 mm in height will fit. One of the highlights of the case is the fact that GPUs can be mounted vertically using a PCI-E riser cable (sold separately) - meaning that users are really free to make their system stand out from the crowd. A PSU shroud conceals the power supply and the HDD cage, where two 3.5"- or two 2.5" drives can be installed. Two more 2.5" SSDs can be installed to the rear of the motherboard.

 

As for those who prefer to opt for air cooling, there are more than enough slots for 120 mm fans. The front allows for three 120 mm- or two 140 mm fans to be installed. The roof supports either two 120 mm or two 140 mm fans. The cover is equipped with a mesh that allows the system to benefit from a plentiful supply of fresh air - and this is combined with a dust filter to ensure the interior doesn't need frequent cleaning either. The rear of the case supports a high-performance 120 mm fan, a 360 mm or 280 mm radiator can be installed in the front, and a further 280 mm radiator can be installed in the roof if needed. The pre-installed 120 mm fan can be replaced with an identically-sized radiator.


Tempered Glass and RGB-LEDs: Showcase Your System


Thanks to the clever locations of the cable guides and brackets, users will enjoy the various benefits of smart cable management. All the more important as so much of the case is on show, thanks to the use of a tempered glass side panel. In the centre of the front of the case, users will find a strip with dARGB-LEDs. These LEDs and their effects can be controlled via a switch situated on the I/O panel. Alternatively, the strip can be connected directly to a compatible ARGB motherboard and controlled that way instead. Aside from the RGB button, there are also power- and reset buttons alongside a USB 3.0 port, two USB 2.0 ports, Power/HDD-LEDs, and a 3.5 mm jack for headphones and microphones.
