The Sigma Unicorn

Sigma Unicorn - Poncey Name But Great CasePC modding is one of those habits that you get into gradually and progressively you add more in-depth mods in much greater numbers until it completely envelops your waking hours.Or alternatively, you may be more inclined to buy the bits, realise how difficult it is to get started and then put your plans the back burner for the next immeasurable number of years.

Whether you’re looking at PC modding in a bid to create a more powerful system or you just want more freedom over what you can stick in it, as it were, you have to have a good case. A case doesn’t just hold the bits, it tells a story of what’s inside and unless you’re one of these crazies that insists on even building their own case then you’re looking for something really showy.

Sigma is a fairly new company, in terms of case manufacturers having only really entered the market in any significant form in the last couple of years. However, their latest effort – the Sigma Unicorn, or Sigma Metal Storm, certainly looks the part.

The black case comes with the obligatory conservatory window so you can show off the nuclear core of a system that’s under the hood As well as offering an entire bucket load of expansion slots and having a unique custom feel and look to it, the Sigma case uses fairly unique quick release clips inside, rather than the usual fiddly array of inaccessible screws and mounts.

In terms of drive bays there’s quite a collection, with 5 x 5.25” and 2 x 3.5” bays externally, and 3 x 3.5” bays internally. The 80mm Red LED fan cools your system and, as Sigma themselves state, keeps it looking great.

All in all it’s a good looking piece of kit and if you’re in the market for a new PC case then you could do worse than the £80 or so that it costs.
