Glass outside and inside: The Deepcool Matrexx 70 3F with a lot of RGB and even more visibility

The Matrexx 70 3F resembles a checklist that highlights current trends and requirements that young and creative PC screwdrivers place on a modern housing. With an attractive price of less than 100 euros, Deepcool also wants to appeal to particularly price-conscious users. I have looked at whether this bill is going up and what the Matrexx 70 3F has to offer behind the glass facade.

After unpacking, the Matrexx 70 3F presents itself quite classically, with clearly defined shapes and hardly conspicuous or even playful elements. The front and left side wall are made of tempered glass, the rest of the case is made of sheet metal and a steel frame inside. On the top there is a flexible mesh sheet, which is attached to the housing by magnetic strips and acts as a dust filter. The side parts, on the other hand, are attached to two knotting screws and placed in rubberized recesses.

Even if real glass is installed at the front, the frame is made of plastic. The glass can be opened via a dedicated button. Behind it is the dust filter and the holes for mounting the fans. Three units are already factory-mounted, another fan is located inside the housing, but has not implemented RGB LED lighting. For the fresh air supply, Deepcool has inserted a repetitive triangle pattern on the sides of the front.

And when I'm talking about the air in the interior, it's time to take a look at the case. The basic equipment of the Matrexx 70 3F includes a power supply shaft, which is decorated with an LED bar and an illuminating logo. This is exactly where the real highlight of the Deepcool housing can be found: A small glass plate is held on the top of the power supply shaft with a kimer screw. This reflects the (RGB) LED lighting of fans, memory, AiO cooling and graphics cards. As a result, both a little movement and a more modern design make their way into the interior. And I take it in advance at this point: In detail, the inner glass pane is a nice, but not a perfectly implemented idea.

The internal glass pane is fastened by a knotscrew

The housing is mounted on rubber feet, which dampen both the vibrations (slightly) and a fresh air supply from the bottom or the bottom. allow the blowing of warm air from the power supply. In order to prevent dust or (animal) hair from entering the interior of the case, a removable filter is mounted on the underside, which I can pull out over the entire length of the case.
