ExtremeHW is excited about its opportunity to review three new products being introduced to market. Not only are these the first products under review for our friends at PCCOOLER, but they are also extra special because they are coming to market under the new brand name CPS. If you have been paying attention to the evolution of personal computing, the PCCOOLER brand should be a familiar one. Since the company's founding in 2005, Shenzhen Fluence Technology PLC have engaged in the R&D and manufacture of PC hardware products including CPU coolers, RGB case fans, computer cases and PC power supplies under the brand name PCCOOLER. With more than 500 patents under their belt, the introduction of the CPS brand heralds the birth of the flagship product line that is surely going to cause some disruption.

Good stuff from CPS. I look forward to seeing what they release next.

 

The new photo gallery app works well on mobile, and enabling scrolling for the pro/con table also works well on mobile browser.

Thank you. I was more impressed than I expected to be, and the pricing is very good. Especially the case. My son absolutely loves his "new" build. Not only because it looks much better, but it also runs a whole lot cooler than it did in the antique easy-bake oven his parts were in before.

That's a LOT of review to go through.  Dude, I don't know how you did that in the required time frame.  Absolutely amazing.  Am I the only one who was alarmed at first though reading about CPS being a bully on the playground on here?  Very nice choice of headlines there.......🤣  I'd never heard of them as a PC parts company before.  I'll definitely be on the lookout for their stuff next time I'm shopping, looks great!

LOL, thanks Brother Pio. It was a lot of work, but I felt it was a priority with our first review for this vendor and because it was a new brand and new products launch.

 

I hope you have a good week.

Building a PC for my son with this case as we speak.  May I ask how you ran the wires for the 3 bottom fans?  I can't make it out from the pictures but however you did it I'd like to replicate it! Did you pinch them between the motherboard and the bottom of the case?  I don't see them going through the main wire hole that it came out of the box like but can't figure out how you did it with no clearance between the bottom of the case and the MB.

 

Thanks for the review!

@Guest ML04:  I'm not the builder here, but it LOOKS like @Mr. Fox ran the cables from a hole behind the motherboard, and then out the side and used the fans themselves along the bottom of the case to hide the wires maybe?  There's usually enough clearance between the motherboard and the tray, USUALLY to hide basic front panel wires and let them sneak out from under the motherboard where they belong.  Regardless, I'm sure Mr. Fox will respond soon. 🙂

Hello. Yes, the wires are flat and I smoothed them out and stacked them neatly so they would lay perfectly flat against one another and held them with white zip ties, then ran the bundle behind the motherboard, between it and the motherboard tray. So, there was just a single bundle of wires neatly stacked together. When you do that, some wires end up longer than the others on the connector end, but the extra slack is hidden in the rear chamber behind the motherboard tray. On the visible side there is no slack between them where they are stacked together neatly. You can see where I circled the bundle in blue in the image below. The stand-offs provide enough clearance to sneak them through on the right side near the lower right motherboard screw.

Beauty!  Thanks for sharing guys.  I saw that wire there but assumed it was the case audio cable.  I guess the bundle was so neatly stacked and tied that it looked like on single larger wire which I mistook for the audio cable.

 

Great work and thanks for the responses.  Looking forward to getting this build finished up in the next few days!
