GEEEK shows off its budget G1 SE case again on Twitter

GEEEK has taken to Twitter once again to show off its upcoming G1 SE PC case, a low-budget take on the standard G1 currently available. This new image of the case confirms things we noticed yesterday and shows us a few new things.

Taking a look at this new image, we now know for sure that bottom fan intakes have been updated with a grill design, a much-welcomed change. On top of this, we can now see the case has a new inner shell covering the silver metal on the inside and forms the bottom of the case.

Overall, it seems that GEEEK is essentially creating a V2 of the current G1, with cosmetic improvements that manage to keep the cost down at the same time. The case looks pretty good from the looks of things, and we can’t wait to get our hands on it.

Taking a look at the previous image posted to Twitter by GEEEK, we can see a few notable differences from the original G1. The first thing we noticed is the black metal ring surrounding the inside of the case. This new black ring covers the silver finish on the inside, giving the case a more finished look.

Next on the list of changes in the bottom fan grill. The original G1 lacks a mesh-like pattern in favor of large cutouts, allowing more air and dust into the case from the bottom. In the new image of the G1 SE, it appears that the large holes have been switched out for the same circular mesh.

Looking at the fan intake on the top of the case, it appears that it has been made a little longer, possibly to accommodate three 92 mm fans along with the standard 120 mm fans. This should also improve the thermals of the case, as it has plagued the current G1.

Something that took me a little longer to notice is excluding the metal case on the bottom of the case. Since the outer casing is likely the most costly part to make, it makes sense that the bottom of the case would be cut down to use less material and save a little money at the same time. I assume that the side panels will cover this so that it won’t be an issue.
