According to Sharkoon's official press release, the RGB Slider features an RGB LED strip that has a built-in addressable RGB controller that provides 14 preset color modes. The lighting can be customized thanks to the 5V-D-coded-G or 5V-D-G pin header via the software of compatible motherboards. The list of supported software solutions includes Asus Aura Sync, MSI Mystic Light Sync, Gigabyte Fusion, and ASRock Polychrome SYNC. Lastly, it should also be noted that the RGB controller of this case allows the connection of additional RGB components.

The list of other specs and features includes aa side panel made of tempered glass, a pre-installed 120 mm fan and support for up to three 120 mm fans behind the front panel, two 120 mm or two 140 mm fans under the top panel, as well as another 120 mm above the power supply tunnel. The Sharkoon RGB Slider can also accommodate up to three SSDs on the mainboard tray or on top of the power supply tunnel, which also contains an HDD/SSD cage that can take in two 3.5-inch HDDs or two SSDs. The CPU cooler supported can have a height of up to 15.7 cm, and this case allows the use of graphics cards up to 33.5 cm long.

As mentioned in the beginning, the Sharkoon RGB Slider has a manufacturer's suggested price of 39,90 Euros (roughly US$47.26) and should be already available for purchase via various online and offline retailers, including Amazon.

Compact ATX case with extensive installation options

 

Pohlheim, 17 November 2020 – Sharkoon Technologies is an international supplier of quality, high-performance PC components and peripherals. Sharkoon Technologies now presents the RGB Slider, a new midi ATX case with a compact format. The case has a minimalist and simple design, and despite its low price range, it still has special features such as a side panel made of tempered glass and a front panel with an integrated RGB LED strip.

 

Simple Yet Chic Design

Thanks to its black finish and simple form, the RGB Slider makes a straightforward and unobtrusive impression. For subtle visual variation, the matt black front panel contains an RGB LED strip that can be illuminated in 14 preset color modes via the built-in addressable RGB controller. The lighting of the RGB LED strip can be freely adjusted through compatible mainboards with a 5V-D-coded-G or 5V-D-G pin header and using software such as Asus Aura Sync, MSI Mystic Light Sync, Gigabyte Fusion and ASRock Polychrome SYNC. The integrated RGB controller also allows the connection of further RGB components.

 

Full View into the Case

The RGB Slider possesses a side panel made of tempered glass, located on the left side of the case. This enables a full view of the interior, and the installed hardware components let themselves be seen. The surface of the side panel remains free of visible screws, as the panel is rested into the frame and firmly attached from the rear of the case.

 

Range of Options for Fan Installation

In order to provide the case with an optimal airflow, the RGB Slider has various installation options for cooling fans. The 120 mm fan which is already pre-installed at the rear of the case can be supplemented with additional fans if required. Behind the front panel, there are locations for up to three 120 mm fans, and under the top panel there is space for two 120 mm or two 140 mm fans. For additionally cooling the installed storage drives, another 120 mm fan can be mounted directly above the power supply tunnel.

 

Designed for Plenty of Storage

Inside the RGB Slider, a variety of data storage drives will all find room at the same time. Up to three SSDs can be mounted on the mainboard tray or on top of the power supply tunnel. The tunnel itself contains an HDD/SSD cage, in which two 3.5” HDDs can be accommodated or, instead of these, further SSDs.

 

Takes on Large Components

Despite its compact dimensions, the interior of the RGB Slider is also suitable for an extensive hardware build. The small case presents the possibility of also installing larger examples of hardware. Thus, a CPU cooler can have a size of up to 15.7 cm while a graphics card with up 33.5 cm length will still have sufficient room available.

 

Price and Availability

The RGB Slider is now available at the manufacturer's suggested price of 39,90 euros.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
