Here we get our first glimpse of the Sentey Arvina GS-6400. It has a high gloss finish on the side and front panels that looks great but will in all likelihood be a finger print magnet. Sentey have thought ahead and included a small lint free cloth to restore the finish.

The side panels are very sturdy and use a manual locking mechanism when removing or securing them. When a case has flimsy side panels they usually bend if they are removed more then a couple of times so it’s nice to see that Sentey have reinforced them.

The front bezel of the Arvina GS-6400 is made of a molded plastic and the front panel is designed with removable steel mesh drive bay covers. This design is clean but it certainly isn’t bringing anything new to the table. To be fair it is a proven design, so we know the air flow should be good and they have also fitted the bay covers with a foam dust filter.

The top portion of the front panel offers two 5.25″ bays that are spring loaded, we will see how well this works in real life when we get to the system build section of the review. To complete the front panel there is a multiple slot card reader built in.  This is a great feature and Sentey implemented it without making it look awkward or congested.

As we move to the rear of the Arvina GS-64-00 the layout consists of a bottom mounted PSU with 7 available expansion bays directly above the PSU. Further up we have the 120mm exhaust fan and the location for the I/O shield that protects our motherboard connectors. The last thing to be noted about the rear is that there are 2 water cooling holes factory drilled that are protected by rubber to prevent any damage to the tubes holding the liquids.

The top panel of the GS-6400 is loaded with features. First, we have the power on/off button followed by on/off buttons for each of the 4 sets of cooling fans that come with this chassis.  This gives us the ability to shut down each group of fans separately to reduce fan noise if so desired or allow us to make temperature comparisons with specific fan configurations.

There are also 4 USB 2.0 ports, 1 e-SATA port, 1 native SATA port, the reset switch and audio and microphone inputs. Sentey have included a sliding plastic cover to provide protection for this portion of the panel. The remainder of the top of the GS-6400 is made up of molded plastic that surrounds a cutout area of steel mesh designed to allow the 2 120mm top exhaust fans to push heat out the top of the chassis.

The base of the Arvina GS-6400 has 6 rubber feet that will absorb the majority of vibrations and hold the unit steady.  The base is well ventilated to allow the maximum amount of cool air to be drawn in. This will definitely assist with cooling system components and Sentey covered this area with a fine screen mesh to prevent dirt from being sucked into the system.
