The AZZA Toledo 301 should end your unremitting compromise between value and budget! With performance, features, and quality found only in high-end cases, designed with an eye-catching exterior, AZZA invites you to build your next power rig with its Toledo 301.

This mid-tower chassis has massive storage capacity, with four external 5.25" drive bays, one external 3.5" bay, four internal 3.5" drive bays, two 2.5" SSD, HDD drive bays and seven expansion. The assembly is a breeze with AZZA's screwless design. All your components will stay cool with one monster 250mm blue side LED fan, a 120 mm front blue LED fan, and one black 120mm in the rear. Enhanced ventilation can be achieved by your option to add 2 x 120mm fans on top. It supports water cooling radiator up to the size of 240mm, and the longest VGA card in the market up to 340mm (ATI 5970). It can accommodate Micro ATX and ATX motherboards and is compatible with all kinds of Nvidia. In addition, the painted black interior complements the black exterior and just adds to its overall sophistication and refinement.

Easy USB 2.0 and audio connectivity are provided on the top I/O panel. An adjustable PSU support bridge is located in the bottom and you may install the PSU with the fan either facing up or down, for air intake or exhaust. The pre-drilled fan holes right underneath all but help to eliminate the PSU as one of the heat sources in the case! Furthermore, since cable can be organized behind the pre-drilled motherboard tray, this case comes with a superior cable management system that allows for improved cable routing and enhanced airflow. Lower you budget, not your expectation with the AZZA Toledo 301!

Conclusion:

I found the AZZA Toledo 301 to be constructed well. Its chassis is made of 1mm SECC steel. Although it has a lot of plastic on the front and top, it does not feel flimsy. The tool-less mounting system for HDD and optical drive was easy to use. It felt very secure. It has a Transformer’ish appearance that is very aggressive. The pre-installed fans are nice, but it could use at least 1x120mm fan in top to help with exhausting all the heat from the case. The blue LED in front along with the two LED fans gave it a nice blue aura. All the front panel wiring was long enough to route any way you want. The cut-outs made wire management a breeze. I did like the way the side panels were mounted. Instead of sliding forward, they are hinged at front making installing the very easy.


The AZZA Toledo 301 can be found on the internet in the USA for about $80. It is an aggressive looking mid-tower case. It is not for everyone, but if you want something different from everyone else it’s a great choice. I did find one thing I was concerned about; it does not have any filter on any of the intake fans. This can cause dust and heat issues down the road if you don’t take care to keep it blown out.  Although I usually remove filters from the exhaust fans, having intake filters would be nice. Overall, the AZZA Toledo 301 mid-tower case is a very good choice with its extreme appearance. It’s definitely an eye catcher.
