THE AOPEN HX95A DESKTOP COMPUTER
Last updated: 6/30/99
HX95A ATX desktop computer case is an improved version of the HX95,
a case I have been using for years. It
is roomy and a pleasure to work with. It looks good, has a solid
feel, and is furnished with an ample assortment of hardware. It is
a good choice for building the average computer, but less than excellent
ventilation preclude its use for most file servers and heavy-weight game
BENT METAL. The case is made
from 1 mm steel. Some, but not all of edges are rolled-over to strengthen
the case, make it easier to slide the cover on, and reduce the possibility
of cuts during assembly.
There is a removable channel-shaped metal
brace that goes from the top of the back of the 5 1/4" drive bays to
the rear of chassis, just
to the right of the power supply. Not only does this add strength
and stiffness to the chassis, it also accommodates an additional 3 1/2 inch
internal drive for total of seven drives. The brace easily connects
to the chassis with a single screw. I like it. Additionally,
there is stiffener rod along the top, left side which connects the front
to the back of the case.
The U-shaped cover is easy slide on from the
back and is secured at the back with three screws.
There are two DB-9 and two DB-25 knockouts
for Baby AT motherboard I/O connectors. They do not have screw driver
slots for easy removal.
