The GEEEK G1 SE features adequate compatibility for its 1.1L volume and has clean/minimal exterior, using 2mm sandblasting and anodisation for the aluminium body which gives nice finish while also being more fingerprint resistant “Apple eat your heart out”.

In the UK, the GEEEK G1 SE comes bundled with the 3.0 PCIe Riser Cable. We would have liked to see the option to buy the case only for those who already own a compatible Riser Cable, thankfully this is an available configuration on geeekstore.com.

The GEEEK G1 SE has good cooling capabilities, thanks to supporting both top and bottom case fans for intake and exhaust. We recommend getting the aluminium panels rather than the acrylic for additional cooling for the CPU and GPU. The case also supports AIO liquid cooling which is nice option to have in a SFF case. Unfortunately the radiator mounting is located at the bottom of the case which may impact the AIOs lifespan as explained by GamersNexus. We hope GEEEK can move the radiator mounting to the top of the case in future versions.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.
