The German company Silent Power Electronics GmbH distributes numerous PC components in Europe under the name LC-Power. The portfolio includes cases, CPU coolers and fans, as well as power supplies and other gaming equipment. By 2020 LC-Power has already introduced nine new cases. These belong to the gaming series and are intended to impress above all with features such as tempered glass, RGB lighting and a spacious interior.
One of the new cases is called Gaming 701B Badge_X and represents a relatively simple midi tower. In addition to the features already mentioned above, this model has four USB ports on the front, an aluminum front panel and two vertical PCI slots. The Gaming 701B Badge_X is already available and costs only 43 euro (currently: € 56.18*). Thus it offers a good price-performance ratio, at least on paper. Whether this is true in reality, you can read in this review.

Scope of delivery
The LC-Power Gaming 701B Badge_X comes well and safely packed in a brown box with black writing. Inside the box the tower is covered by two blocks of normal styrofoam and a plastic foil. However, the styrofoam blocks are borderline thin. A sketch of the tower and all important technical data are printed on the cardboard. The supplied accessories are in a bag and are fixed inside the case with a cable tie. But there is not much to see here. Included are only all important screws, five black cable ties and a mainboard speaker. Also included are the pre-installed spacers and a magnetic dust filter for the lid.
