Being a DIY PC enthusiast for years, I’d been my pleasure and nightmare to have come across many great casing and even more dismal ones, especially low budget casings. I got to know the price of the Versa before I got to handle the casing and I wasn’t expecting much out of it but the casing proved me wrong.
Of course, I didn’t realize how neat the casing was until going through it thoroughly. Right out of the box, the Versa casing felt just like any other el-cheapo casing – it’s very light.
Now before I proceed, I’d like to clarify that this review works for all Versa series – the H23, H22 and H21. In reference to the photo below, the H23 is the one on the left, the H22 is the one on the right. 🙂 The H21 and H22 shares the same placement for Button / I/O panel.
I think the front panels requires no introduction now so let’s look at the top – the Versa series comes with vents on the top but they are just as what you see, there’s no mounting points for fans even though it looks like you could mount 2x 120mm units on it.
Now looking at the view from the back, you’ll realize why there aren’t any mounting holes on top. In case you’re not familiar with how a casing is, take note of how close the fan and motherboard I/O cutout are close to the ceiling of the casing.
On the bottom is the PSU placement nothing out of the ordinary. The Versa casing comes with a PCI-E plastic cover but it doesn’t seem to look like a security lock either. As for the PCI-E covers, they’re part of the casing and if you ever do remove them from the casing, you’ll have to find some PCI-E cover brackets to put into place.
At the bottom are non-rubbered feets and a filter for the PSU.
With that settled, let’s have a look at the interior of the casing. The base doesn’t come with any stand-off screws as the board comes with raised platforms for motherboard mounts.
Here’s another view of the interior, the casing comes with a 120mm fan pre-installed and as you can see there’s very little gap between the fan and the ceiling.
