The Sharkoon BD28 is a PC case in ATX format, geared for the needs of gamers and enthusiasts. The case is available in the colors red, blue and green, with the interior painting, fan color and front LED all matching in color. Next is a gunmetal edition with two blue LED fans and a black interior painting. The acrylic side panel provides, in all color variations, insight into the inner life of the built-in components.
With a width of 23.5 cm and generously broad side panels, easy installation of large tower coolers with a height of up to 17.9 cm is guaranteed. Likewise, the BD28 offers more options for the installation and unobtrusive wiring of all components. Extra-long graphics cards up to 41.5 cm can be installed due to the modular hard drive management. If equipped with the maximum 2.5″ hard drives/SSDs, the BD28 still offers enough space for VGA boards up to 32.5 cm.
With the pre-installed, low Noise 120 mm LED fans in the front as well on the back, it’s already arranged for optimal cooling. To further enhance the air flow inside the case, up to three additional fans can be installed. On the top of the case there is space for either two 120 mm, two 140 mm or a 180 mm fan. In the front, there are already prepared holes to mount an additional 120 mm fan. To correspond with the internal color design elements the lights are matched to compliment the color version. With the red version a red LED fan illuminates in the case’s front and backside, this is also true with the blue and green versions with their respective colors.
Two USB 3.0, two Audio as well as two USB 2.0 ports in the front offer quick access for connecting peripherals devices. In the event that the mainboard does not have an internal USB 3.0 connector, the two USB 3.0 ports can also optionally connect and operate in USB 2.0 mode.
Installation Options for Drives
The case offers two 5.25″ drive bays for screwless installation of optical drives. For the installation of card readers or other devices in 3.5″ format a 5.25″ adapter is included. Up to three 3.5″ HDDs and four 2.5″ HDD/SDD can be mounted without screws due to the included rack mounting system. An additional 2.5″ HDD/SSD can be mounted on the bottom of the case, if needed.
