CDI Alaska Cool-Case
Intervention or Invention ?
three main problems that you'll need to
solve with respect to your next computer
case selection, accessibility, looks, and
cooling/ventilation. The folks at Computers
Divine told us they have the
solution. They claim the
"Alaska Cool-Case" is an answer
to your prayers sent from the heavens
an intro. We thought this sounded a
little "over the top" too.
So we decided to get in a little piece of
heaven to see what it looked and performed
like. This is the H.H. take on the
Alaska Cool Case from CDI. Divine
Intervention or just a cool
invention? You decide...

Blank and Gold Marble paint job...
bad boy already has the blowers now all it
needs is side pipes! We decided to
take the above shot on some cold
concrete. It is a really mean
looking case and we wanted to shoot it in
a mean environment. The paint job is
a hoot! This thing looks like it is
a customized hot-rod out of a
magazine. If you are the type that
wants a low profile case that will blend
into the scenery, this is not your
case. On the other hand, if you like
looking stylish as you're
"offing" your friends in a round
of Quake3, this thing is right up your
cooling fans cut into the case, have a
black grill covering providing a nice
finished look. It also keeps the critters
from straying into the blades leaving
road-kill as you cruise the info-bahn.
There are the 4 fans you see on the side
and 1 on the other side adjacent to the
top fan in the picture above. There
are also fans in the front chassis,
pulling air into the case through the
bezel and in the back blow air out.
Finally, 2 - 30mm fans are mounted
directly behind a plastic painted grill in
one of the 5.25" bays. These
are for keeping a drive chilly.
(The back is a standard ATX setup -
backside is pretty straight forward but
has the additional vents for the chassis
fan blow out.
