What use are those rubber grommets when it appears right at the bottom of the board? As much as I like my PSU cables to come forth from those grommets, I’m unable to do so due to lack of clearance.

Another problem with the Strike-X is the top. It looks great with quite some clearance for heatsinks, even enough from for AIO water cooling setup but what I didn’t like was that the top panel relies on screws to keep it in place.

Unlike the DS 200 where the top panel is secure and requires some force to remove, the Strike-X Cube’s top panel is secured by screws. This means you need to go through the hassle of opening the side panels, find a small screw driver and unscrew all the screws before being able to release it. Bummer.

Another thing about the Strike-X Cube is that the surface on top is of a mesh grill, this helps structural integrity but it means you have to work through a netting. šŸ™
