Anidees does not have a long history but the company offers impressive computer cases and also USB chargers. Today, one of the most ambitious cases of the company “AI Crystal” is here with us and has a lot of nice features, most significantly tempered glass panels.
Packaging and Accessories
The case comes in a very simple box but very well protected thanks to the huge foam layer since it is very important to protect those tempered glass panels.
Other than the installation guide here we see cable ties, seperately packed and titled mounting screws for mainboard, drivers and PSU.
The case is huge and features sharp corners, straight lines take attention. Front, left and right sides hold the tempered glass panels.
Both left and right panels are in fact made of 5 mm thick tempered glass mounted with the help of four thumb screws. As a result a total of three glass panels make this case really heavy.
Top air outlet is covered by an easy-to-clean magnetic dust filter. If you touch this area accidentally that filter might slide.
Top located I/O panel includes fan speed controller, mic in, headphones out, power & reset buttons, dual USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports each. The fan controller selects low mode on left, high mode on right and turns them off on the middle position.
Seven expansion card slots, bottom located PSU area, 140mm exhaust fan are visible at the back of case. A special sliding cover is added to secure expansion card slots.
Four large feet located at the bottom are covered with non-slip material. The PSU intake fan dust filter can be cleaned easily. Those four holes support mounting a 3.5″ HDD.
The front located 5mm tempered glass can be removed easily after pulling from bottom. The design is simple yet effective. Clean air entering from sides reaches the front fans.
After removing the front panel, it is easy to understand that front fans have a similar easy way to clean the dust filter, too. It is not possible to install any kind of external drive.
The front located dust filter is exactly the same as the one on top and containing magnets along its sides. Don’t expect it to drop from its place unless you carry it somewhere else.
When the dust filter is not in place, it is easy to guess those clear fans have LEDs inside. 1100rpm 140mm fans are expected to be quiet and even at lower speeds they can supply enough airflow into the case.
The 5mm tempered glass panels at each side are identical and the smoky glass has a semi-matte effect.
The right side of the case contains an isolated PSU area, cut out for CPU cooler installation, three 2.5″ SSD/HDD holders, dual 3.5″ HDD drawers.
In the close-up shot it is clearly visible the fan controller board which can supply outputs for up to five fans simultaneously. High mode supplies 12V, on the other hand low mode only 5V.
There is enough space between the right panel and the case so you can organize all cables easily.
Every time you need to install/uninstall drives you will need to reach the right side of the case. Thumb screws are used here but it is still necessary to use screws for mounting. 3.5″ HDD drawers are supplied with anti-vibration grommets.
Thanks to the seperate location of drives, AI Crystal has an extremely big interior space. The PSU is isolated and even E-ATX mainboards won’t cause any issues.
Bottom located PSU chamber is fixed and can’t be removed. There is a big gasket-protected opening for cables so that you can hide unnecessary ones.
You can route data cables of your HDD/SSDs through this hole and cover it easily. This looks like an elegant and helpful idea.
Top located fan mounting area looks ideal for liquid cooling solutions. It supports 240/280/360mm radiators.
Rear located 140mm 1100rpm fan is identical to the rest so as a result clear wings are supported by white LEDs. One can install a 120/140mm raditor here in case of an AIO water cooling. Your CPU cooler can’t be taller than 175mm by the way.
You can install PSU only from the right side of the case. Even the longest versions are supported. It needs four screws from the back. Since enough room is supplied here, you don’t necessarily need to have a modular PSU.
A standart ATX mainboard and a 280mm long VGA do not take more than half of the supplied space! The maximum supported length for VGAs is 410mm (mind the front fans and/or radiator).
White LEDs are clearly visible even behind the 5mm tempered smoky glass and dust filter. Since they are connected in parallel to the motors, their brigthness depends on the selected fan controller mode. Here we see them in High mode and low mode halves the brightness and fan speed.
Obviously the case looks great in a dark enviorenment. If you have a mainboard, VGA and CPU cooler with LEDs it can look much better than this!
It is impossible not to like the Anidees AI Crystal after all the top quality materials, looks and hardware compatibility. Although the 5mm tempered glass panels make it very heavy, it is quite easy to setup a powerful performance and/or gaming PC. The included 140mm fans result in a very capable cooling system yet the fan controller lets you choose silent operation or performance when needed. Water cooling can be installed without problems since you have multiple options. Magnetic dust filters look like an afterthought idea. Even though external drives are not supported, there are multiple slots for HDD/SSD drives and all cables can be hidden. A similar situation applies to the PSU and even a closed chamber is included. When you consider flexible design, strong structure, elegant look and cooling performance, the 149.90 € pice tag is easily understandable and acceptable.
