The Arvina comes in a big box as it’s a big case. Inside you’ll find the case wrapped in a cloth bag and protected by Styrofoam.

The case is bright red, some people may not like the color but I think it’s nice to be different. If you don’t like red you can get other colors though. The case is a combination of plastic and metal. The red paint job is nicely done. The case itself seems well made and sturdy.

On the front of the case you’ll find vented drive bay covers, the Sentey logo and a built-in card reader at the top.

On the top of the case is a large power button and four buttons that control the fans. There’s also a smoke colored sliding door that covers SATA power and data connections, four USB ports, audio ports and the reset button.

On the left side of the case is what I guess is the Sentey logo in the form of sort of a window, but it’s actually ventilation for the fans on the inside.

The right side of the case is just plain red.

Moving around to the back we find the chassis is painted black, it goes good with the red color I think. You’ll find the familiar stuff on the back, along with liquid cooling ports as well. The side panels are held on with thumbscrews and spring locks.

Moving to the bottom of the case you’ll find a lot of ventilation and rubber feet.

The front of the case pop off easily to reveal a front cooling fan and four 5.25” bays along with one 3.5” bay. Two of the bay covers are spring loaded so you can install an optical drive and it will remain hidden.

Removing the right side panel you’ll find a large hole for the CPU, and three holes for routing wires along with cables ties. The hard drive bay is open so you can run the wires to and from the hard drives.

When you remove the left side panel the first thing you’ll notice is the fans that are there to keep your video cards nice and cool. The fans are mounted on a metal bar that swings out and can be removed if need be.

Here are a few views of the inside of the case, the PCI cards are held in place with plastic locks, and there are ventilation spots on the bottom of the case as well. One is for the power supply and one is for an optional fan.

The optical drives are held in place with spring loaded locks, it makes it easy to install them.

On the bottom is the hard drive cage. The hard drives go into racks that slide into place. The cage itself can be removed as well. The racks are screw less; you just pop the hard drive in place and push the plastic tabs in on the side.

Inside of the case you’ll also find a tool box, it’s plastic and inside you’ll find a screwdriver, motherboard speaker, PCI slot cover, cleaning cloth, and a bag of screws for installation.

Included also is a mini-CD that has the drivers for the card reader on it. There’s also a set of cables that go with the SATA port on top of the case, and then there’s some documentation.

I installed my main system in the Arvina case and I found that there’s a lot of room in it, more than enough for the largest of video cards I would think. I have two ATI video cards, one is a 4890 and the other is a 4870. I did a bit of wire management; the holes in the motherboard tray come in handy for that.

Here’s the back of the case with the wires, I didn’t do much management back there but there’s a lot of room there so it’s not really needed if you don’t want to.

All of the fans in this Arvina have red LEDs in them, and they are bright. The top fan controller has red LED indicators as well, and the power button has blue LEDs. It’s very bright in the dark; I don’t think you’d want to sleep with this case in your bedroom, unless you like nightlights.

Speaking of fans they’re quiet, they’re very quiet actually. I did run into a small issue with them though, the left side panel vibrates sometimes and it can be very annoying. Smacking the side panel fixes the problem temporarily though.

I did run into another small problem with the card reader, it worked fine for a while then it just stopped working. I unplug it from the USB header on my motherboard and moved it to another one and it worked fine again. I’m not sure what the problem there was.

I really like the addition of the SATA ports on top they work well with the included cables for quickly and easily transferring data from a loose hard drive.

 

Conclusion:

The Sentey Arvina is a top notch case truly, there’s plenty of room for the largest video cards and everything else that you might need to put in there.

The addition of the card reader is a useful thing for sure, it makes life much easier.

I really like the SATA ports on the top of the case, the cables are long enough to reach to the bottom of the case so your hard drive can just sit flat on your desk.

The case is well made, it’s big and bold, if you want to make a statement then this is the case for you.

 

Pros:

+Lots of room

+Well made case

+Relatively quiet

+Easy installation

+SATA connections on top of case with cables

+Built-in card reader

+Looks great

 

Cons:

-Small issue with card reader

-Case side panel vibrates annoyingly sometimes

-Sucks dust in, a lot of it
