Sharkoon has expanded their PC casings lineup with the Bandit ATX case. The Sharkoon Bandit offers easy installation, good airflow, an integrated card reader and even a docking station for 2.5- and 3.5-inch SATA hard drives.

Sharkoon has integrated for the first time its highly-demanded external QuickPort docking station into a case. Simply slot in your 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch SATA hard drives, and it is ready to use. Another distinctive feature found on the top of the case is the 180mm blue LED exhaust fan. Also, the Power and Reset switches, audio connectors, as well as the eSATA and USB ports, are all easily accessible on the top panel. The card reader pre-installed in the highest drive bay supports SD, SDHC, MS and CF I cards, and has an additional USB port.

 

The Sharkoon Bandit is constructed out of sturdy SECC-steel with a black finish on both the inside and outside. Behind the plastic front faceplates, which are constructed in a mesh design for optimum air intake, there is space for five optical drives and three hard drives. The three hard drives are cooled by the 120mm LED front fan situated in a removable hard drive cage. The optical drives can be installed tool-free by quick-locking mechanisms.

The motherboard tray has a cut-out to allow installation and swapping of heatsinks that come with a backplate without the need to remove the whole board. A cable management system is in place to allow users to route cables between the motherboard tray and the side panels. This minimises cable clutter and improves airflow within the case.

If the pre-installed fans are still not sufficient, users can opt to install an additional two 120mm or 140mm fans on the side panel, and a 80mm or 120mm at the back.

 

The Sharkoon Bandit measures 200 x 485 x 485mm (W x H x D) and weighs approximately 6.6kg. The case is already available on the market, and goes for 69.90 EUR.
