Akasa Venom Toxic Case Review

The chassis of the Venom Toxic case is all black, including the rear and the interior. From the rear side of the tower we can see that the PSU compartment is placed at the bottom part of the case and a 140mm exhaust fan is installed near the top.

Right above the rear exhaust fan Akasa drilled four round holes which are covered by rubber grommets. While these holes are most usually used for watercooling hoses they can also be used to route cables to the rear of the case, such as the user of this case will have to do with the USB 3.0 connector.

A dust filter has been placed at the bottom of the case to filter the air of the PSU intake. It can be removed by simply pulling it from the rear of the case. This case has very tall round feet with anti-skid bottoms, although given its weight it could really use a set of four optional wheels for people which would move this around often.

On the right side panel of the case, Akasa subtly etched a very large logo of the Venom series on the otherwise plain black panel.

The left side panel of the Venom Toxic case is very complex, with most of its surface covered by a thin black perforated mesh. The large mesh above the system area is filled with mounting holes for a plethora of cooling fans. Akasa used soft plastic for the fan holes which should absorb fan vibrations of quality fans up to a medium speed; however we would like to see a mounting method with higher vibration absorbing potential when so many fans are to be placed on a thin mesh of a side panel. The side panel can hold either up to four 120mm fans or a huge 180mm-230mm fan. No fans are factory installed.
