AZZA Titan 240 Case Review
The AZZA Titan 240 case offers a balance of style and functionality for your gaming setup a perfect choice for high-performance builds. Cases intrigue me more than any PC component with the exception of cooling units. When it comes time to settle on the perfect chassis, it can take me hours and I still never seem to have 100% certainty about my selection. Because of this, I’m always happy to see numerous manufacturers bringing variety to the market.
AZZA is a company I’ve seen numerous times, but this is the first time I’ve been able to get my hands on one of their cases. The other revolution we’ve been seeing in the case market is the crazy amount of tempered glass cases that are being released by almost everyone. AZZA Titan 240 Case is no exception to this and there’s a good reason behind it.
The glass side panel goes a long way to making the case look far cleaner than any plastic one, while also making the components inside show through a bit clearer.
The end result is a PC that looks a lot nicer than the Plexiglass-type panels we’ve dealt with before. We’ll begin looking into how AZZA implements its design, but first, let’s look at its statement to find out the philosophy behind the company’s designs.
Setup, Closer Look, and Installation: Titan 240
For starters, here’s a list of all the hardware used in the build of the Titan 240
CPU: AMD FX-6350 @ 4.5 GHz
Motherboard: ASUS 970 Pro Gaming/Aura
RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance 4×4 GB @ 1600 MHz
SSD: CRUCIAL MX300 750 GB
PSU: Seasonic Gold Series 750W
Video Card: SAPPHIRE Nitro R7 370
I’m staying with the video approach on this. Not only does it speed things up a bit, but it makes it much easier to show a step-by-step install process as well. This guide will help show not only how easily certain components go in, but also help answer questions like how easily panels come off.
Let us know in the forums what you like or what you think can be improved since much of this is still a bit experimental for our site.
Azza jumped into the tempered glass fray and it seems like they did a pretty good job overall. Temper glass side panels look excellent without even trying so it’s up to the manufacturer to make the rest of the casework as well.
Overall, the Titan 240 does a good job of being a solid mid-tower case. Building in it was fairly easy which is always a plus in my book, while the overall build quality had a sturdy feel to it. Azza is on its way to being looked at as a premier case maker if it keeps these kinds of qualities up.
What will hold Azza back are two things that I hope to change in the future. First, nothing says “cheap budget case” like a Molex connector on a fan. These fans usually end up being throw-a-ways and many manufacturers won’t use them.
Still, this is minor in comparison to the top panel issues I had with the radiator. Users will expect to install a 240mm radiator in a top slot, which means there needs to be extra space to accommodate the ends that stick past the 240mm mounting holes.
All around, Azza did a great job on this case though. The design looks great and it seems like quality materials were used. What really gets me about the Titan 240 is the fact that you can get a tempered glass case for $60.
That’s a good price! What really gets me is the fact that Newegg has a $20 rebate as well. That can come and go, but that puts this case on the top of my budget list when compared to others of similar price.
