I have a Pentium 4 system which I primarily use for e-mail, instant messenger programs and streaming music from the internet. Lately, it has been locking up on me due to overheating. I thought this might be a limitation of the case since it has no internal cooling and limited ventilation due to its construction. I felt a new case may solve my problem, so I decided to breathe new life into the old system and set it up in a new case. Fortunately, the prices of good quality cases have become more reasonable and it is not unlikely that a case upgrade alone can improve the overall performance of your system.
This is the first review HiTechLegion has completed on a Raidmax product. According to their website, they were founded in 1988 and manufacture several different series of cases, power supplies and CPU coolers.
The Skyline is part of Raidmax’s Elite series of cases. The case comes in four different options: a windowed model and a non-windowed model, called the Silent model. Both types come in either solid black or black with silver trim. The case is packaged in a box that clearly depicts the sleek look of the product. The box ends show all four options, as well as giving the case specifications. It is also noted the Silent version comes with a noise reduction padding – an option which is absent from the windowed version. For my purposes, the old P4 system is not used to duress so noise has not been an issue. However, the padding is a great benefit for high-end gaming or multimedia systems.
