AZZA unveils Genesis 9000. Offering unprecedented features, with uncompromised performance, all at an unbeatable price. Among the many courteous innovations you'll find in Genesis 9000, is a removable motherboard tray that can be installed in two opposite directions. Placed in the traditional way, your CPU is next to the top fan. Place the motherboard tray in reverse, the ventilator is now in close proximity to your VGA cards. Placing a giant exhaust fan next to your hotspot is one feature that helps keep the computer cool locally. Furthermore, since the physics of good airflow demands global planning of the position and the direction of the ventilators to ensure adequate air intake and proper exhaustion, Genesis 9000 is engineered with the power supply installed in the front bottom so that 2 x 140 mm mid- and rear-bottom fans can supply gusts of wind blasting upward removing excess heat via the top 2 x 230 mm fan. This design generates an uninterrupted vertical airflow that allows air to flow in a straight line from bottom to top, providing optimum cooling for the entire system. The full-tower case supports dual-power supply. A second power supply may be installed in the rear bottom.

1. Cable management is superb. You can build the entire system and conceal 95% of the cables behind the motherboard tray. There is an amazing amount of space behind the motherboard tray.
2. Plenty of fans. There is more than adequate cooling with this case. The fans, although not as loud as some, are still fairly loud even on low setting (and I am only running one of the bottom 140mm and the two top 230mm). The border LED lighting only lights up on the HIGH fan setting.
3. Plenty of room in the case for large motherboards.
Cons: I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you leave the "removable" motherboard tray INSTALLED and do not attempt to build the system on the tray outside of the case. Upon removing the tray I found it to be quite warped and am in the process of obtaining an RMA for another tray. There is a handle on the back of the case that APPEARS to be for the motherboard tray but it most be removed to extract the tray. The unique "reversable" design of the motherboard tray allows for additional options for cable management to be available.
The "tool-less" drive bay latches are poorly designed and will simply pop off when you insert a 5.25" drive into the bay. The drive is relatively secure due to the tight clearances and guide rails but the latches popping off is definitely annoying.
Bottom-line: Although it is obvious that several corners were cut to keep the price low, I would still have to recommend this case. The storage space behind the motherboard tray is truly amazing and that alone would be enough reason to recommend the case in my opinion. The design flaws, though frustrating, are forgiveable and the unique options provided by this case make it well worth the price.
There are quite a few things I liked about this case; a few things I disliked, but the overall experience was very good. I've listed a breakdown of these things I discovered during my build (system transfer from an Antec PC183 v3) below:
+Plenty of included fans
+Astounding amount of interior volume; the specs do not do it justice, this case is absolutely massive and positively dwarfs my old Antec (which was itself a large-mid to small full-size tower)
+The entirety of the metal is painted, and thoroughly. This includes the "Oh, nobody but the builder will see this" sections - this shows a level of thought and care I really appreciate in a case design.
+Reversible ATX design
+Removable motherboard tray
+Cable routing behind the tray is deep and usable
-Case arrived with a couple minor cosmetic flaws (nick in plastic, small; slightly rubbed-off feet on bottom of case)
-One of the 120mm fans on the side-panel had a broken blade (not an issue for me, was replacing them anyway)
-230mm fans are clearly audible when on. I don't expect a lot from included fans and intend to replace them, so this is a minor annoyance at worst.
-Blue LED strips on sides and top bleed light into surrounding panel. This is probably the only "lack of careful thought" part I found in this case, but I imagine I'll remedy this by masking off the interior of the panels to give it a more isolated lighting effect.
-Hard drive rails were a little tough to fidget into behaving right, but once you get it sorted it works well enough
-The motherboard tray was slightly bent on arrival. I don't really care on this one, it goes into a straight rail and is fastened across the plane of the motherboard so that straightens the metal out for you. Still, it speaks a little to the quality of the metal. Getting to that...
-The metal in this case is a wee bit flimsy; this isn't really well noticed in the doors, since they make use of raised edges and fan holes like in an automobile to prevent torsion across the panel. It shows in the motherboard tray though.
And now, for things which are merely observations, or maybe tips for folks picking this up:
\ Again, the case is massive. Your wire run might not be long enough, so consider this if you're installing your PSU in the front. If I hadn't done a reverse ATX, my CPU power might not have reached the spot on the board.
\ You have ~50mm of clearance for an internally mounted top radiator if you intend to get a 480mm radiator. I haven't done my water cooling build yet, but this is something I've discovered in observation and in my research at other sites.
\ There are screws holding the bottom of the case on (four holes at the corners). I managed to feel like a goof for about twenty seconds trying to figure out why the bottom wouldn't give and let go until I realized this.
\ The front is very open for air flow, but also for noise. If you've got a spinning hard drive, you will clearly hear head noise on boot. I couldn't hear this in my P183, which is a little unfair; the P183 has vault like silence.
\ If you're installing a front PSU, make sure to install it before sliding the motherboard tray in. It can be done, but it is so much easier with the tray out.
\ If the 230mm and 140mm fans are any indication, the 120mm from the door will be a little loud. If you're serious about cooling though, you're probably bringing your own fans to the party.
Overall, I only docked the case one star for the metal quality and the light bleed. Everything else is just par for the course in case design. What easily elevates and retains this as a four star case is what you get for your dollar. At this price point, choices that exude this much flexibility and quality are few and far between and I would enthusiastically recommend this case to anyone who is looking for room, a dual loop water cooled build or just a thoughtfully designed and very well executed case.
The idea of "reverse" ATX was intriguing, and wow was it a worthwhile configuration. My thermals and temps on each individual graphics card have never been lower. And I'd be lying if I said I don't like the look on my friends faces when I open my tower and everything is upside down.
This is accomplished by a removable motherboard place which then flips to the other side of the case. At first, if I'm honest, it did take some getting used to, with all of my DVI and HDMI plugs being "upside down" to what I was accustomed. But it's still worth it to run in this configuration, combined with the vertical airflow design. I'm also a fan of the "game mode" toggle button on the top, which dramatically lights up the LEDs on the case while increasing your fans inside to a higher speed.
Also, that it can accommodate so many TYPES of motherboard means this investment will certainly be a "buy once, cry once" investment. To put it another way, between the customization options and the build quality, I've got a case for my next several builds.
There are a few minor gripes, however. The hard drive trays, while sturdy and made of metal, are not slotted for the front of the case very well. They have a fair amount of resistance to remove or insert. Also, for the expense of this case I was really expecting some sort of fan controller on the front, instead of a button that just cranks them all up to max speed. Those that are very picky about fan noise may not be impressed, although an after-market fan controller can be installed in one of the many, many optical bays.
All-in-all, it's a great case with a really unique internal thermal/airflow design. There are a few quirks, but it's a top quality case I'd buy again in a minute.
