Introduction

Mountain Mods has been in business since 2003, only a few short years but long enough to make a name for themselves as a top-notch case manufacturer. Most if not all of their designs start off with a cube shape of some sort, divided in half to make two chambers, one for the motherboard and one for the drives, power supply and other components. In the example of the U2-UFO Duality, reviewed here at OCIA.net last year, the case splits the chambers into room for two separate computer systems, a novel idea for those with more than one rig and constraints on space. But that seems to sum up Mountain Mods designs: novel and interesting ideas.

Today I am taking a look at one of their latest cases, actually released in the second half of last year, the H2gO. In the words of Mountain Mods, the H2gO is "designed for the enthusiast on the go. Measuring up to 17 inches deep, 13.5 inches tall and 12.75 inches wide, makes this case highly portable without sacrificing in the cooling or technology departments." The box the H2gO came shipped in certainly didn't match the typical computer case shipping container; a plain brown cube with no exterior markings to indicate what's inside. I always liked this about one other manufacturer, Thermalright, who for years has used plain brown boxes to pack their products in. I think it says something about the company, something to the effect of... we'd rather spend our money on making you a great product than flashy advertising on the box it comes in.



Join me as I take a closer look at the Mountain Mods H2gO.
