GELID Solutions Dark Force Gaming case tested - Left and Right panel

Written by Sanjin Rados

Review: Gelid obviously means business

The left side has a large transparent acrylic panel. It measures 361.5 x 280mm and is 3mm thick, making it easy to see every component inside. Case modders and some gamers will probably welcome the panel but GELID Solutions will probably provide a solid side panel if there is demand for it. For the time being though, this is the only version available.

The right panel has a hole for the 80 of 120mm fan, which must be 15mm thick.

The acrylic window is protected by a thin nylon film which should be taken off after inserting components in the case. Side panels are held in place by thumb screws.

The panels are tough and rigid. They are made from 0.7mm steel but they are fingerprint magnets.

We could not remove the left panel on the first try as it was stuck. As you can see from the picture below there are white traces left on the metal surface, which are a result of our pulling. However, after removing the panel ten to fifteen times, sliders softened up and removing it was not that hard any more. The right panel is closed normally.
