Redragon MC211 Case Overview
Taking a first look at the MC211 it has that very familiar design that of course gained popularity with Lian Li’s PC-O11 series. The case is all white and it appears that this is the only color option available. As I said this case takes up a very small footprint, the official dimensions are 365mm x 188mm x 360mm.
At the front of the case we have a glass panel that allows you to see straight through the case. There is a small Redragon logo on the right side of the front panel.
You can pull on the front bezel from the bottom of the case and it will pop right off. Now there are no fan mounts or anything like that on the front of the case, but removing the front panels gives you easier access to the side mounts and other parts of the case.
Moving up to the top of the case the first thing we find are our buttons and connections. There is a large power button, two USB 3.0 ports, a combo headphone / mic jack, power HDD activity LED, a small reset button, and LED switch button.
The rest of the top of the case is ventilated and it is worth mentioning that the ventilation holes are pretty small. I assume this is to cut down on dust entering the case as you will not find a single filter on this case. Removing two thumbscrews on the back of the case the top panel is easily removed. Once removed we can see cooling section that supports either two 120 mm fans or radiators up to 240 mm.
The main side panel is a tempered glass panel. This panel uses a tool-less system so there are no screws or anything like that visible. The opposite side panel is a ventilated panel and is held into place by two thumbscrews. At the bottom of the case on each side is what Redragon is calling their Rhythm Sync Lighting Bar which is a light bar that is going to react to noise, more on that in a bit.
Moving around to the back of the case we find two more ventilated sections, but there are no fan placements back here. We can see there are four expansion slots as the case supports motherboards up to Micro-ATX. The bottom of the case has feet on it which will lift it off the ground. There is ventilation on the bottom of the case, but again no fan placements here, which is weird because they definitely would fit.
