Case Choices

An often neglected part of building a computer is the case. Its the part that defines the look of your custom build PC, holds all the components in their place and importantly is responsible for a large chunk of getting rid of the stuff that kills computer parts - heat! Here at UK Gaming computers, we only use the best cases out there, which is unlike a lot of our competitors who use cheap substandard cases as its a very comon corner cutting trait. Who wants their £1000 PC in a £20 case? When choosing a case, we recommend you pick the best one that you can afford, as it is one of the parts that you will probably reuse upgrade after upgrade.

It is also worth noting that because we are not tied to a specific brand/supplier we can provide you with exactly the case you wish. If you have seen something and want to incorporate it into your build or want to know what we think of it then please do feel free to get in contact with us.

Game Max Abyss RGB Glass

The Game Max Abyss with an infinity mirror with RGB LED lighting on the front and a tempered glass front panel with a perspex side panel. The most important adjustment feature is directly in the eye with an intelligent integrated infinity mirror at the front. This optical illusion is created by a glass front, consisting of an outer one-way mirror, which partially reflects light on its inner side and is partially transparent to the exterior and a fully reflecting mirror inside, placed parallel behind it. The light emitted by an RGB LED strip arranged in the gap around the walls is thus reflected back and forth between the two mirrors, whereby, with each reflection, a part of the light penetrates visibly outwards and ultimately produces the visual effect. The principle corresponds to the mirrors in police interrogations frequently shown in crime series and films. There is also an RGB LED strip on the PSU cover. The highlight of this lighting arsenal is its complete configurability with adjustable colours in the RGB kit built-in, along with the PWM function, to produce silent cooling and the Abyss offers seven different LED colours at the front and on the side panel with the RGB LED strip and it offers five different colour lighting effects.
