ALTHOUGH THEIR small size and light weight make them ideal for LAN gamers, small form factor systems lack the expansion capacity of full ATX systems. For those who desire multiple PCI slots, hard drives, or even graphics cards, ATX towers are the only way to go. Thermaltake's Shark aluminum ATX case attempts to blend light weight with plentiful expansion potential.
On paper, it looks like the Shark delivers. The Atkins Diet has trimmed the case's weight down to just 14 pounds, and the Shark offers loads of both internal and external drive bays. With dual 120mm fans to keep things cool and a thoughtfully laid out interior, the Shark could be easy to live with and a joy to work on, but is it really all that? Read on to find out.
