Diablotek Cyclops Mid Tower Case Review

We are back with another case from Diablotek.  The last case we reviewed by Diablotek did not impress us that much at all so we are hoping for something better with this case.  Part of Diablotek’s Gamer Series the Cyclops is a mid tower case that features support for full length graphics cards, is USB 3.0 ready, has tool-less drive bays, and has 5 pre-installed fans! You get all of this for under $70! Will this case be one of your choices for your next build? Read on to find out!

Special thanks to Diablotek for providing us with the Cyclops Mid Tower Case to review.

    Bought this case feb of 2014 and now in late 2015, 3 of the 5 fans went out. Replacing them was a Bitch. 2 of them were the top fans. I had to remove everything… down to the motherboard (okay, I didn’t have to remove the power supply) in order to replace the fans on the top of the case. The tool-less portion of the hard-drives break very easily. The case comes with 3 drive adapters to convert 5.25 drives to fit a 3.5 inch hdd. The rear I/O port panel problem described in the review is correct. you nearly need to use a prybar on your motherboard to get the screws to align. On my case the power supply aligned just fine, but for 1 screw. One of the front USB 3.0 ports died, and is only good now to charge devices. Seriously, not a case that you’d really want to own. I need to install (4) 4 TB hdds. and I can’t find the adapter trays. The company does not support this product or any more
