The Sharkoon M25 series stands for minimalist design ATX Midi Tower, which is particularly impressive due to its versatile installation possibilities and its tidy appearance, both inside and out. The M25-W, available in both black and white, is especially deep. Its acrylic side panel displays what gamers care about, which stays well-lit thanks to the LED fan mounted on the rear panel of the case. However, the innovative distinguishing feature of the elegant case is not just its appearance, but also its rich sound: Thanks to its integrated sound card, demanding gamers benefit not only from the perfect coordination of their team but also from bombastic surround sound.
Virtual 7.1 Sound
The integrated sound card is attached to the front connectors on the case and suitable as a second sound source for the operation of speakers and headsets on a PC. In addition, existing Windows systems can be easily upgraded with virtual 7.1 sound. The included audio software for Windows allows individual equalizer functions with effects as well as microphone boost settings.
The special construction of the case interior offers enormous possibilities for discreet installation of various components. Cabling can be inconspicuous and hidden, therefore not affecting airflow inside the case. The power supply and up to three 3.5″ hard drives can be installed on the bottom of the case inside the tunnel, therefore not detracting from the appearance. The air vents on the tunnel, side and top, ensure optimal cooling of hard drives. The mainboard and the remaining components enjoy perfect cabling thanks to the cable outlets.
Cableless Front Panel Design
Another big advantage of the M25-W is its cableless front panel design. The front panel can be easily removed without needing to disconnect any cables. This facilitates the installation of a 5.25″ or 3.5″ drive tremendously.
Optimal Preparation for Perfect Airflow
The front panel has on its right and left, hidden behind the mesh panel, numerous air inlets, which ensure a supply of cold air. Pre-installed in the front panel, behind the dust filter, are two 120 mm fans. Alternatively, there are suitable holes for two 140 mm fans. For water cooling, the M25-W offers the possibility of a 240 mm or 280 mm radiator, with a total height of 5.5 cm including fan, to be operated in the front of the case. On the rear panel of the case a 120 mm LED fan is pre-installed. If desired, three 120 mm or two 140 mm fans can be installed underneath the magnetic dust filter on the top panel. Oval hole cutouts offer excellent opportunities for perfect positioning of fans or radiators.
Modern Front Connectors
Two USB 3.0 and two Audio ports in the front panel provide quick access to connect the most important peripheral devices. The USB 3.0 ports are connected via a 19-pin mainboard connector, including alternative USB 2.0 plug, to ensure backward compatibility with older mainboards.
Versatile Mounting Options
For optical drives, the M25-W offers two 5.25″ drive bays with automatically locking tool-free device installation. By means of the enclosed 5.25″ to 3.5″ bay cover, for example, a card reader can be quickly and easily installed into one of the two 5.25″ drive bays. If necessary, two 2.5″ HDD/SSDs can be incorporated instead. If more space is needed, the screwed in drive bays can be completely removed. In the bottom of the case, up to two 3.5″ hard drives, or two 2.5″ HDD/SSDs decoupled, are installed by means of a mounting frame.
