Over the past two years, the DeepCool brand has managed to significantly improve the quality of its cases and cooling systems. Having gone far beyond the budget segment of the market, the company is confidently moving higher. At the same time, the modern line of its products can generally be characterized by such words as simplicity, practicality, convenience, functionality.

The subject of this review is the DeepCool CK560 case, which is a typical representative of the new generation of PC chassis, which takes into account almost all the current trends of this industry. In addition, it arouses sympathy even at the moment of unpacking. And although there is nothing special and innovative here, attention to detail is felt in almost all design elements. So, without further ado, I suggest moving on to its general description, and later to thermal tests.

Supply set

The case is sold in a regular cardboard box. Basic information about the product can be found on a colored sticker on the side. There are cut-out handles on both sides for easy portability. A pair of foam dampers, a polyethylene bag and a double-sided film on the glass protect the product from damage from the inside.

The set of parts is contained in one bag. There are the following things:

  • user manual;

  • 22 small screws for the motherboard and SSD drives;
  • transitional adapter for connecting the backlight controller to the motherboard.

Appearance

DeepCool CK560’s understated appearance is nothing extraordinary. Designers fantasized a little with the front metal false panel, covering it with holes in the form of square crosses, but that’s probably all. On the side faces there are vertical ventilation holes, which are rounded depressions in the plastic frame.

The fake panel is made of fairly thin metal and is held in place by just two hooks on the bottom and a pair of magnets on top. It is easy to remove and, in my opinion, the case looks good without it. Especially since there is a dust filter mesh.

After removing the plastic frame of the filter (one hook on top, two on the bottom), we get direct access to the fans. And we immediately notice that there are vertical slits on the sides. Air enters there directly, bypassing the dust filter. Not the best option for a constructive solution.

External ports and buttons are located on the front of the top panel. There is a white indicator of the activity of the drives, a button to start the system, two USB 3.0 connectors (green) and a combined 3.5 mm audio input under the headset between them, a control button for the ARGB backlight controller, and a USB Type C port.

The right panel is glass (a tribute to modern fashion). It is held on by two screws with a knurled head, and has a handle on the back for convenient disassembly. A slight level of tinting of the glass allows you to clearly see everything inside.

The panel is removed by sliding it back and tilting it to the side and then up. The thickness of tempered glass is 4 mm. It has a painted black frame around the perimeter, and metal mounting guides are glued to the edges on the front and back.

The right metal side is completely flat. It is also held on by two screws with a knurled head, and has a handle on the back for convenient disassembly. To remove it, it is enough to move it a little back and then to the side.

The stiffeners on all sides are made by bending the metal at right angles. They are quite enough so that the panel does not bend under the load.

The ventilation grill on the upper panel of the case is covered with a metal magnetic dust filter. It has a nice rubber tail in the back for easy removal.

The grid is composed of medium-sized square holes. The seats for fans are shifted to the left side. Two 120- or 140-mm propellers or a liquid cooling system of appropriate dimensions can be attached to them.

The rear panel is completely standard. On top there is a ventilation grill with square holes. It has seats for one 120- or 140-mm propeller. There are seven PCI expansion slots below, covered by reusable vented plugs, and opposite them is another grille. The place for the power supply unit is provided below.

The frame of the dust mesh filter of the power supply unit slides out behind from the bottom. BZ can be oriented only with the fan downwards, according to the location of the mounting holes.

There is nothing interesting on the bottom panel, except for the ventilation of the power supply unit, legs and several technical holes. But if you’re looking for the serial number, the sticker with it is right here.

The plastic legs of the case with rubber stickers have a height of 20 mm.
