After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at

    Case layout and Features

    The Armor A60 comes with a total of 3 fans.  The first is a 200mm blue LED fan is located in the top of the case.  This fan spins at 800rpm and whisper quiet at 15dB.  The next fan is a 120mm unit located in the traditional exhaust location spinning at 1000rpm.  The third and final fan is another 120mm blue LED fan located at the front of the case and serves as the primary intake.
    Aside from what is included you also get 4 additional 120mm fan locations to suit your cooling needs.  Top, bottom, side, front, you name it; you can put a fan there.

    The Armor A60 is a reverse case design featuring the PSU at the bottom of the chassis.  This style has become very popular over the years since it allows for better overall cooling performance and allows for the entire top to be vented.
    Standard ATX and MicroATX motherboards can be installed however due to the location of the drive bays your expansion cards will need to be less than 12inches in length. 
    The hard drive bays feature a plastic tray to hold the hard drives in place.  This is a tool-less design that wraps around the hard drive before it slides into the drive bay.  All of the external 5.25" drive bays feature tool-less clips, though can be replaced with screws if your old school like me.
