Today at the Club, we
have a very special treat! Danger Den has given us the opportunity to
review their new case, the “Water Box Plus”. This case is a very
different than your standard ATX case on a multitude of levels. First
off, the case is specifically designed for water cooling. Secondly, the
case is completely clear, and finally the layout is far from the norm.
Let’s take a second to look at all of these aspects.
Water Cooling specific:
The case is laid in a way to be easy to setup a
water cooling box, specifically the Danger Den Black Ice Pro Single Pass
and Black Ice Xtreme Single Pass Radiators and Danger Den DDC pumps.
Many other radiators and pumps may fit; I encourage any interested buyer
to contact Danger Den directly if they want to find out more. On hand I
had the Asetek WaterChill 3x120 kit, however it was much too large for
this case, as the case is large enough for a 2x120 radiator at most. We
will be using extreme air for the review, however I will do my best to
point out aspects of the case that will be of interest to water cooling
High quality clear acrylic
construction: Another eye-catching feature of
this case is the clear acrylic construction. This combined with it’s
unique layout will definitely be a crowd pleaser at LAN parties.
Unique Layout: The layout of this case is what really separates this
case from most others; the motherboard lays flat above on top, while the
radiator, pump, power supply and drives lay underneath.

disassembled into distinct panels. Everything is packed tight and
secure, and all parts are individually wrapped.
