Tecware has launched its new Forge M case, a compact micro-ATX chassis with a ton of features and a really attractive price. At just S$55 on Lazada, the Forge M is shaping up to be a huge steal for system builders, in typical Tecware style. 

This is a case built around high air flow, and it sports a polygonal mesh front that can hold three 120mm fans. There's room for two more 120mm fans at the top as well, and one more 120mm mount at the rear. The Forge M ships pre-installed with four Orbis F1 addressable RGB fans at the front and back, so you don't even have to shell out more to buy your own. There's a built-in controller hub too, which lets you toggle between 62 different lighting modes via the dedicated LED button. Alternatively, the fans can be plugged into the RGB ecosystems of all the major motherboard manufacturers, including ASUS, ASRock, MSI, and Gigabyte.

There are helpful magnetic dust filters at the top and bottom, which should make for easy removal and cleaning. The hinged tempered glass side also makes it easy to access the case interior and tidy things up, while the PSU shroud of the bottom can help hide the bulk of your cables. 

Tecware has made room for two 2.5-inch SSDs to be mounted beside the motherboard tray, and there's a removable drive tray at the bottom that can hold two more 3.5-inch HDDs or SSDs. 

Elsewhere, the case will hold up to a 180mm long power supply unit, in addition to graphics cards up to 340mm long and CPU coolers 160mm tall.
