P-ATX V2 REVIEW

This is the v2 release, which has increased the case volume from 9 to 10L, enabling better component compatibility. SFF time have also altered the stand design for better stability, however we prefer the v1 stand design over v2.

The case features support for 120mm AIO’s equipped with 92mm fan. This is located at the bottom right of the case. This has high potential to cause the AIO to fail, due to air to getting trapped in the AIO’s pump block, certainly something to keep in mind if water cooling.

We have sent our feedback to the developer regarding swapping the stand to the opposite side of the case so that the GPU and AIO radiator sit above the motherboard for better cooling and to reduce the chance of AIO failure.
