Introduction


GMC is a Korean manufacturer who focus almost entirely on the design and production of HTPC cases. As a result we have reviewed several HTPC cases and a few unique tower cases from them in the past.

Today we will take a look at their latest creation, the X-7 X-Station, which is not another HTPC case but a 'gaming' chassis. Obviously GMC are trying to build a case which appeals to gamers but be easy on the wallet at the same time. We will see how good GMC's latest product is in this review.

Packaging & Bundle




The X-7 is supplied in a typical cardboard box, the artwork is minimal but it feels sturdy enough and the case is held by two thick Styrofoam pieces providing the necessary protection during transport. The bundle is minimalistic, as inside the case you will find only a small cardboard box full of screws and the few of the accessories you will need. There is also a very basic manual with information you need to assemble the system. Noteworthy enough, the provided screws are colored green and red even though there wasn't any real reason for GMC to do that, because the case hasn't got a windowed side panel to begin with.
