THE VENOM TOXIC BLACK EXTERIOR

Akasa has designed a good looking PC case that can appeal to pretty much every age group out there and much like every Full Tower out there it's quite large measuring 620mm in height, 555mm in depth and 232mm in width with a weight of 13.1kg.

Looking at the left side panel we see an X shaped meshed section and 3 smaller ones right above that.

In that X shaped section you have the ability to either install four 120mm fans, one 180mm fan or one 230mm fan.

The front fascia looks great although I’m not very fond of the hard plastic used.

There are six 5.25" bays at the front one of which comes ready for use with an 1.44" floppy drive.

A nice Venom logo is placed on the lower perforated section of the front fascia right above the Akasa logo.

The I/O is placed on the edge of the top and includes the on/off power button, two speed fan controllers, 2 USB 3.0 ports, 2 USB 2.0 ports, eSATA port, HDD activity LED and the usual headphones/microphone 3.5mm mini-jacks.

Right above that there's a medium sized storage area (this is where you place the anti-slip rubber pad).

One 230mm exhaust fan is placed right beneath the large meshed area found at the top of the case. Beneath the same area you can also mount an 240mm radiator (without removing the 230mm fan).

A large Venom logo is also printed on the right side panel but it's not that easy to spot.

The rear of the Venom Toxic Black comes with the same black color as the rest of the case.

There are 4 water cooling grommets and a 140mm exhaust fan (can be replaced with an 140mm/120mm one) at the rear top.

One thing that really impressed all of us was the 10 PCI expansion slots the Venom Toxic packs.

Once again the PSU spot is placed at the lower rear end much like most towers in the market today.

One of the few things we didn't like with the Venom Toxic was the use of normal thumbscrews (not rubber coated ones) which were not very easy to remove.

Four round feet, an air-filter right beneath the PSU space and a perforated space which you can use to install an extra 120/140mm fan.
