The majority of Revoltec products consist of trendy looking cables, fans, input devices and USB peripherals. They are still not one of the most well known companies on the planet, but they are well respected by enthusiasts throughout Europe. Although most products Revoltec produce have been modding related equipment, they have recently begun to diversify more and moved on to cooling, enclosure and ATX case products.
Today we will take a look at one of the latest products added in the Revoltec product line-up, the Rhodium ATX midi tower case. Bearing the name of the most expensive metal known to mankind, Rhodium is designed to be a good looking, spacious case, mainly aiming towards enthusiasts and gamers.

Packaging and Bundle
The Rhodium comes in a fairly large and thick cardboard box with clear artwork printed on it. Inside the box the case is held between two Styrofoam pieces, common practice when packaging a case. The case is wrapped in a plastic bag and silicone pouches are inside, absorbing humidity in order to keep the case in prime condition. Although the Rhodium is fairly heavy, the packaging should be sufficient to keep it safe during transport.
There were several items bundled with the Rhodium case. To begin with, there is an I/O shield and a bag full of screws and necessary hardware bits. The included manual is good and also written in 4 languages, but it could be better. There is also a small tool for removing the front panel and two spare plastic fan bolts. Finally there is a plastic tray which holds the 3.5” and 5.25” drive rails, which can be inserted in a 3.5” drive slot itself. This way you won’t lose it, but a 3.5” slot is wasted.
