Introduction and Specifications


Revoltec is a new brand marketed by the German based Listan Group. Listan Group is also responsible for the popular PSU series called “Be Quiet!”. Today we have Revoltec’s latest product in for test, a mid tower ATX case with stylish design at an attractive price.

The Zirconium RT-101 is available in silver or black and is made of 0.8mm steel panels, making it a solid case. It has good expandability and room to fit higher end gear.

The case is delivered without PSU, so you can add one that will fit your exact needs, you get a 120mm exhaust fan and room to install another one in the front, but only 1 fan is included. The side panel features a plastic air duct which is situated over the CPU area on the motherboard. With total weight over 8kg (and this without PSU or system inside) it’s not a light-weight, but still do-able for LAN party goers.

Let’s compare the size of this case with others ->
