Introduction

On review today is the new Ultra m998 Mid-Tower ATX chassis. The chassis was named after one of the world’s toughest and most versatile military vehicles. This case is designed to be the ultimate gaming weapon.



Exterior

The case is made from black coated brushed aluminium, which helps prevent smudges and gives a nice metal effect. The front of the Case is a plastic panel with holes for the small I/O access and the power and reset buttons. The front grill is quite covered however there is a large opening on the bottom section of the front panel to allow air flow through. The side panel has quite a large plexiglass window and two grills.




The side panels of the case are screwed in by thumb screws and clip in at the front for a strong lock. The bonus on this case is that the top panel is removable via a single thumb screw and clips in like the side panels.


The front IO connectors are concealed by a small push clip flap which integrates into the right side of the front panel. The USB/eSATA/Firewire/Headphones/Mic connectors are all hidden behind the flap.




The Power and Reset buttons are on the front panel at the top right, which is a common place to put them however these buttons are not like a standard button power buttons they use a small button similar to that of a monitors buttons which is easy to press but not too easy. The LED’s are flush with the area surrounding the groove. For some unknown reason Ultra has decided to place 2 HDD LED’s instead of a single, I could guess this may be because of HDD racks or a secondary HDD output from a PCI(e) card.



A neat accessory that is included with this case is the Castors (or wheels). Whatever you may intend their use for is up to you, but it’s a nice additional feature to add.
