At first glance the case looks like it aluminum, but it is not. For the most part is is .7 MM steel. On the front of the case, there is a light blue acrylic front cover over a thin aluminum layer. I feel that this gives the case a very elegant look to it.
The side panel comes pre-modded with a window and a fan. The window is in the shape of the Enermax logo. The case fan is a translucent blue fan. I would have liked to see one of the 4 led fans here, but this one does the job it was intended to.
