Up until now, I truly wasn't even aware that MSI, the same people that bring you the Twin Frozer cooled video cards and Big Bang motherboards are also offering the chassis to house all of your MSI components in. To be blunt, whether I knew or not, this is a smart move. This way you know when buying the chassis, those MSI motherboards and video cards are very likely going to fit and line up well. In the instance of this chassis, they can even be color matched, as most of the boards are now cooled with blue heat sinks and even some have the memory and PCI-e slots that match as well.
Back to the chassis, though. This mid-tower has a couple of things that I have seen from someone else just before this. This chassis offers a feature called Super Charger and it's a port that will allow you to constantly charge a mobile device as long as the PSU is turned on. A handy feature, just like when I saw it from BitFenix. The other thing that resembles BitFenix designs is that this MSI chassis gets a Shock Resistant Finish (SRF) that is just like the SofTouch rubberized coating we have seen on a few cases previous to this.
The chassis we are going to be looking at today is one of a set of very similar cases and this version is called the Stealth. MSI seems to offer most of the conveniences found on some of the more, high-end designs and it seems that with the choices made to accent and "śtheme"ť this design, they very well may be onto something here. Love it or hate it at first glance, there is quite a bit to consider before I give them my seal of approval.
As always price is most important, but functionality, feature set, accessories, layout and of course the build and testing. Hang tight, as I work my way through this and decide just what to think about his new offering from MSI.
