Ultra Microfly SX6

Ultra Microfly SX6

The Case

Although Ultra is trying to turn the MicroFly SX6 into a flashy-looking case by adding side panel windows and a smoked Plexiglas front door, we feel they haven’t quite pulled it off. The MicroFly SX6 is a fairly good looking case, but not the kind of chassis which can be easily considered to be eye-catching. The chassis and the front panel is painted silver, except from the front door and lower part of the faceplate which are made out of smoked semi-transparent Plexiglas. While the paint job is high quality on the chassis and the plastic faceplate, the color tone of the faceplate is slightly lighter than that of the chassis, which cheapens the look, particularly as it is so noticeable.

The smoked semi-transparent Plexiglas door is very smooth and slightly reflective, but also very prone to fingertip marks. Although it covers most of the faceplate, the front buttons and connection ports are completely exposed. At the right side of the faceplate are the metallic power on and reset buttons, as well as the power and HDD activity LED lights. At the left side is the front USB, audio and Firewire ports and there isn’t any door or cover to conceal them.

Front panel doors generally open sideward either left or right however the door of the MicroFly SX6 flips upwards. Behind the door there are two 5.25” and one 3.5”device bays, the covers of which are painted Piano black. There is also a small LCD with bright blue backlighting displaying the results of the K-Type temperature sensor which can be found inside the case and you can place anywhere you like. Although the LCD is quite bright, it is hardly readable when the front panel door is closed, rendering it rather useless.

Both of the side panels of the MicroFly SX6 are mostly covered by a Plexiglas window. The windows are thick enough so that they won’t rattle or easily crack. They are not secured by any screws and both can be removed during installation by simply pushing them upwards after removing the top panel, this panel is secured in place by a single thumbscrew, meaning that by removing a single thumbscrew you can take off all of the case’s side panels.
