ADATA XPG INVADER – ADATA XPG INVADER: introduction

As already mentioned, this is a mid-tower cabinet, ready for Mini-ITX, Micro-ATX and ATX motherboards. However, we do not install Extended ATX in the cabinet. I am quite surprised that the company ADATA has decided to start producing its own cabinets, because the competition is huge and the offer is inexhaustible. But as they say, every product will find its buyer, I have no doubt that even with this cabinet it will not be different. So let’s look at its specifications.

As the dimensions suggest, it’s quite a cat. Almost half a meter in height and depth and a weight of almost 8 kilograms confirm the overall durability of the cabinet. And so it is durable. Before we get to the analysis in the photos, the video below will introduce you to the closet.

The manufacturer states on its website that no screwdriver or combination will be needed to assemble the PC in the cabinet. However, this is not entirely true, but we will get to that in the corresponding chapter with assembly.

The cabinet is delivered in a papundecel box, is wrapped in mica and embedded in solid plastic protectors. In addition to the case itself, the package also includes a manual, several pullers, a set of screws, a plate with stickers and a plate for mounting the power supply.

As the specifications suggest, you have the option of installing a large number of fans (up to 9 pieces), as well as the case is perfectly prepared for installation and cooling from the largest (1x 360 mm), three smaller (240 mm) to the smallest (120 mm) to back panel.

Due to the increasing use of NVME disks on boards, the number of disks is also sufficient (2x 3.5 “and 2x 2.5”, or 4x 2.5 “). It goes without saying that 4 positions will not be enough for notorious data collectors, they must be Case carries two more slots for 2.5 “SSDs, but only two brackets are included.

I don’t know if it is possible to buy another one, but I verify and specify the information. However, the SSD holder itself is a relatively simple piece of sheet metal, so our skilled colleagues will certainly be able to tinker more at home in the garage if necessary.

Of course, Invader doesn’t forget about lovers of RGB lights either, the case contains a simple ARGB controller that will give you the choice of whether you want a disco or not.
