Assembly:

The components we installed in this case were:

∙ ATI 9000PRO 128MB
∙ Intel D845BG Motherboard
∙ 2 x 80mm Case Fans
∙ Western Digital 80GB 7200RPM HDD
∙ Lite-On CD-RW
∙ MSI DVD-ROM
∙ Intel 2.4GHz
∙ D-Link DFE-530TX+ NIC
∙ SilenX 400w Pro iXtrema PSU

Installing the above components into the Maxtop case was very easy and painless. No major problems occurred during the installation, although if there had been removable drive cages, installation of the drives would have been much easier.

Final Impressions:

After the components were installed and the computer was booted up, I noticed that if the top stealth fan was closed, it turned off automatically but when it was opened, it turned back on again. This is a very useful feature which I have not seen on other cases before.

The toolbox accessory kit in the bottom of the case was very useful; it served as a convenient way to place easy-slide rails and screws. One other improvement that I feel they should have made is placing tool-less fan mounts in all of their case fan mounts.

Conclusion:

Maxtop's latest creation, the Domino Type II is a real beauty. Overall, I was very impressed by this case, even though it has its minor faults. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a really practical yet attractive computer case. Keep in mind, the Domino Type II CSF-800 is designed for file servers and so it is very large.

Pros:

∙ Heavy-Duty
∙ Cheap (US$55)
∙ Top Assembly
∙ Large
∙ Fan Mounts
∙ Swing-up Handle
∙ Tool-less for most of parts
∙ Toolbox Accessory Kit

Cons:

∙ No Removable Drive cages
∙ No Tool-less fan mounts
