Introduction to the AZZA Toledo 301 Budget Gaming Tower
Go to your favorite online retailer, roam around the gaming PC cases area, set the price point for 'under $100'. Chances are that you will spend some time looking due to the fact there will be several. Depending on the size of the e-tailer, I bet there is about fifty or so cases. Do another search for budget gaming cases, but now for under $60. Once again chances are you will find several, not quite as many, but enough that the search results are spread over several pages.
We have reviewed cases here at Pro-Clockers that fit this criterion. Spanning all the familiar companies, from Thermaltake, to Antec and Cooler Master (to name a few). A new face on the scene that has made a big splash is AZZA. Bringing us cases like the Fanthom 900, Helios 910, Solano 1000R and the Hurrican 2000 were just the beginning. Getting back to the budget theme though, AZZA released a new case on March 15 called the Toledo 301.
The goal of AZZA when it came time to release the Toledo 301 unto the world was to offer the customer a great looking budget gaming case, but not budget on features with toting many of those of more expensive case. With Toledo you get water-cooling capability, enough room to house massive amounts of storage space, and for the gamer it comes with enough room to accommodate graphic cards as long as the Radeon HD 5970.
AZZA’s take on the Toledo 301
The AZZA Toledo 301 should end your unremitting compromise between value and budget! With performance, features, and quality found only in high-end cases, designed with an eye-catching exterior, AZZA invites you to build your next power rig with its Toledo 301.
This mid-tower chassis has massive storage capacity, with four external 5.25" drive bays, one external 3.5" bay, four internal 3.5" drive bays, two 2.5¡±SSD, HDD drive bays and seven expansion. The assembly is a breeze with AZZA's screwless design. All your components will stay cool with one monster 250mm blue side LED fan, a 120 mm front blue LED fan, and one black 120mm in the rear. Enhanced ventilation can be achieved by your option to add 2 x 120mm fans on top. It supports water cooling radiator up to the size of 240mm, and the longest VGA card in the market up to 340mm (ATI 5970). It can accommodate Micro ATX and ATX motherboards and is compatible with all kinds of Nvidia. In addition, the painted black interior complements the black exterior and just adds to its overall sophistication and refinement.
Easy USB 2.0 and audio connectivity are provided on the top I/O panel. An adjustable PSU support bridge is located in the bottom and you may install the PSU with the fan either facing up or down, for air intake or exhaust. The pre-drilled fan holes right underneath all but help to eliminate the PSU as one of the heat sources in the case! Furthermore, since cable can be organized behind the pre-drilled motherboard tray, this case comes with a superior cable management system that allows for improved cable routing and enhanced airflow.
Lower you budget, not your expectation with the AZZA Toledo 301!
