Summary

We found the quality and overall just plain good looks to be impressive, especially when you consider the price range where this mid-tower competes.  The Freedom Xone has the interior room to house multiple GPU configurations and will have you showing your system off for others to appreciate along with you. The cable routing holes in the Freedom Xone provides for more than adequate opportunities for wiring management.  This feature, along with the many attributes, made this install a pure pleasure. 

The thermal characteristics for the Xone is more than sufficient for moderate overclocking especially when the side panel and rear fan grills are filled with 120mm fans.  The hole behind the CPU enables the installing of high performance CPU coolers without removing the motherboard and of course there are the possibilities of water cooling.

A search on the web reveals that the Akasa Freedom Xone is available with an average price of $80.00 (USD), a reasonable price but in tough competition when you compare against several competitors that are available for about $20 less.

Overall we would say the Freedom Xone Chassis is aimed towards gamers and computer enthusiasts on a budget and with the Xone you will have an attractive and functional case.
The black interior is well done and the 140mm cooling fans throughout is a great feature, but we do think the Xone is in a tough price point, ideally coming in a bit lower. The aesthetics are nice, the features aren’t particularly innovative but are well executed, and while the Xone doesn’t excel in any particular fashion, it is a good case overall.
