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

    Hardware Installation

    Opening the case you will find a generous amount of space making hardware installation a lot easier.  Overclockers will appreciate the extra space at the bottom of the case for liquid cooling setups. 
    Drive swapping can be a major hassle with some cases.  The Burton solves this by adding a removable drive cage that supports up to 5 3.5" or 2.5" hard drives while allowing plenty of space for the drives to be cooled by the 140mm fan in the front of the case.  Up to 4 optical drives can be installed by easily sliding them into the 5.25" bays. 
    You will find tool-less clamps on all of the expansion brackets which makes installing expansion cards quick and easy.  However, I would recommend removing the fan bracket for the two 80mm fans as it can get in the way while you are installing your gear.

    Cable management is made easy with three long slots along the edge of the motherboard.  The slots were well placed and I had no issues routing cables.  Sentey has included re-usable cable-ties that stick to the case so you can route cables the exact way you want them to.  
    Rubber grommets like the ones found on the watercooling ports would have been a welcome addition to this case since they tend to hide the cable routes a little better.
