SAMA Tank RGB case

1 Attachment

Recommended Posts

I picked this case up for $60 shipped at Newegg. This is a Mid tower and comes with 4 RGB 120mm fans installed. You can install up to 8 fans total. It has 2 3.5in drive bays and room for 7 2.5in drives. I will be installing the following components.


Motherboard Gigabyte Aorus Z390 Master

Cpu Intel 8700k

Cooler Deepcool Neptwin v2

Ram Team Group Night Hawk RGB 3200c14 2x8GB

NVME 1x Toshiba RD400 128gb boot. Intel 660P 512GB game drive

SSD 2x Adata SU800 256gb in Raid0 for games

HDD 1x WD blue 1TB

PSU PCPower&Cooling Firestorm 1050w gold

GPU Gigabyte Windforce black OC 1080ti 11GB


So here are my thoughts on the case. First it is a great case to build in and i'm very happy with it. It can for sure handle custom watercooling if you want and has plenty of room on top and front for rads. I do have a couple complaints with the case. First the 2 fans that can be added to the top of the power supply cover are useless and will do nothing for cooling. Next the PSU can only be mounted fan down and this comes into play with the fans being useless above it. My only other complaint is the RGB controller the case has. The fan speed can only be changed from high to low and using the button seen in the pic below. This means you will have to pull the back cover to change it if you want. Now they could have put the button on a long switch the same way they did the rgb button and mounted it to the top of the fron panel like the rest of the buttons.


Case Dimensions (H x W x D) 20.40" x 8.40" x 17.20"

Certainly sounds like a strange fan arrangement. But looks like a solid case for the money nonetheless, GPU length is such an important factor though, especially if you are having a front mounted RAD.In my case ''Be Quite Dark Base Pro 900 V2" once you have the RAD installed and then the RES in front of it, it really starts to vut down on the maximum length card you can get, luckily I manage to get my cards in with a little room to spare so it was not too much of a disaster haha. What will you be using the build for ?


This is a pre-lim image of my recent completed build, well I say recent it has been built for over a year. AIO cooling on GPU's really adds to the clutter...but not too much you can do about it lol.

Very interesting, looks like a bit of a copy of the Phanteks Evolv. If it holds up well though, it looks like a great deal for just $60!
