A computer case is probably the most personalized part of the computer building process, while the case only plays a small part in the computer's performance, it plays a much larger role in its personality.  Today, we look at the Sigma Unicorn, which looks to deliver on the promise of personality by adding some interesting features we don't see too often in cases these days.  Let's see how the Unicorn stacks up!

Features:

  • Full removable motherboard tray
  • Two 80mm fans and two 120mm fans included
  • Side strut bar that balances the system as well as securing your AGP/PCIE/PCI peripherals
  • Front mounted USB 2.0 and Audio ports
  • Tool-less mounting system for hard drives and optical drives
  • Additional fan mount for cooling the hard drives

Out of Box Experience:

Now that we have the gory details out of the way, time to unpack the case and give it a thorough inspection.  First up, let's check out the exterior features, then we will move on to the interior.

The first thing we notice is how the window has been well protected with a sheet of plastic.  This prevents scratches from happening before you get the unit.  We can also see the 80mm fan mounted in the window. 

Once we peel the plastic away, we get a better idea of what this case is about.  There are a few things on this side that we can immediately see that make this case different than most out there.  The first is the location of the latch.  While most cases open from the rear, this one actually opens from the top.  The second thing to take note of is the smoked glass.  This has the benefit of seeing inside your case like a normal window, but in a way that keeps the system looking sleek.
