Packaging and Scope of Delivery
The Inter-Tech X-908 Infini2 arrives safely and well packed in a black cardboard box. Wrapped in polystyrene it is also protected against shocks. In the cardboard box, on which you can already admire the case, you can find the accessories in a cardboard box in the hard disk cage of the case. Everything important is included: all important screws and spacers, spare screws, a few cable ties, adapter cable for USB 3.0 to 2.0 as well as a 3-pin RGB cable. A quick guide is also included. Three addressable RGB fans of the Argus series are already installed directly. One on the back and two in the lid. These are also already connected directly to the RGB/PWM module with built-in for up to five RGB devices. But more about that later. A graphics card holder is also included as a special extra.
Already on the package itself the Infiniti front of the X-908 is to be marvelled at and one gets desire to finally put the case into operation. However, you have to be a little careful when unpacking and assembling the case. Although everything is stable and robust, it’s easy to do something here and there unintentionally. The lid cover detaches quickly when worn and fingerprints are also quickly visible on the front and on the viewing window. So before you introduce the finished system to someone, you should grab a cloth and clean it again. What might seem a bit annoying pays off.
After the installation, we’ll come to this later, you can only marvel at the successful effect in the front. At the push of a button the lighting can be switched without additional software. For this, 14 configurations are stored in the RGB module. Besides the illuminated glass front, the other surfaces are simple and without gimmicks. The front panel has 4x USB 3.0, of which two are type C, as well as a headphone and a microphone connection. The switch-on and reset buttons are slightly lowered so that they cannot be operated accidentally. This could happen, for example, if you want to control the RGB lighting. There are two switches on the front panel that change the speed and intensity of the lighting.
The interior of the X-908 Infini2 is clearly divided into two areas by the power supply cover. As usual, the mainboard tray and the power supply tunnel have been provided with some openings for cable management. Unfortunately they decided against rubber cuffs.
Up to seven expansion cards can be screwed inside the case. All slot bezels are reusable, so that an exchange or removal doesn’t leave any unattractive holes.
The view on the back side reveals the RGB/PWM control as well as the already connected cables to the front panel and the fans. At first glance, everything looks full of cables and there’s very little space. Behind the mainboard tray there are two 2.5″ slots for SSDs and under the power supply tunnel up to three 3.5″ hard disks with a plastic frame can be installed.
System Configuration in X-908
Now we come to the installation of the components. As hardware we use a Intel Core-i3-8100 on the B360 Pro-VH from MSI with 8 Gigabyte G.Skill Aegis DDR4 2133 RAM. The graphics card is a GTX 1660Ti Gaming X 6G from MSI and for the performance the 400W Pure Power 10 from be quiet! is used.
The installation of the components ran without problems. All screws are available and all necessary spacers can be added. The installation of the power supply was a bit complicated. Here one must bring along some skill, but also this is to a large extent unproblematic.
However, a somewhat larger problem developed with the cabling. For a motherboard with the mATX form factor, the openings are unfortunately quite far away. With a larger motherboard and maybe a fully modular power supply you have less problems and the closing of the sidewall should work fine.
Lighting, Cooling and Volume
As already mentioned several times, the X-908 Infini2 comes with an addressable RGB control. With 14 pre-programmed modes, you don’t necessarily need such a connector on the motherboard itself. With this you can synchronize the lighting with programs like Asus Aura, MSI Mystic Light and Gigabyte RGB Fusion. In addition to the RGB fans, the Infiniti front and the RGB strip on the power supply tunnel are connected to the controller.
In order to get a short impression of the cooling capacity, we have executed the system described above for 15 minutes with Prime95 and FurMark. The case fans ran at a speed of 1400 RPM and are audible, but not disturbing.
Conclusion of the Inter-Tech X-908 Infini2 Review
Let’s just put it all together. The Inter-Tech X-908 Infini2 case comes with really good RGB lighting. This can now even be addressed and synchronized via various programs. The workmanship leaves nothing to be desired. The extras like for example the dust filter, as well as the three already existing addressable RGB fans alone are already praiseworthy and together with two sides made of tempered glass not cheap.
Somewhat negative in the test was the fact that the cable management is not perfect. Here you should pay attention to a mainboard with a larger form factor and possibly a fully modular power supply. With these components also this point should not be criticized any more.
All in all, Inter-Tech offers a spacious and well thought-out housing. It can be used in a variety of ways, even if unfortunately not everything has been perfectly implemented. The price-performance ratio is not the best, but you get something unique for it.
