The Revolution 03 case from the Galax Revolution series of cases boasts a small but powerful design. The case is made for people looking for a small form factor PC but can run extreme setups. Its tool-less design ensures anyone can use and maintain the setup with ease. 
Check out our quick review of the case down below.

What’s in the box?

The case comes with its own supply of accessories and all the screws required to build the PC from scratch. The front of the case is completely covered with a thin RGB strip. The seamless smooth design on the front imparts a premium look to the case. The front panel also sports some vents for sucking in air and keeping the insides cool. The top I/O panel consists of the power button, reset button, Audio jacks, and 2 USB 3.0 ports. This should suffice for most use case scenarios.

The side panels are completely toolless Which ensures ease of access to the panels for maintenance or for simply swapping out components. The case supports ITX and M-ATX motherboards(the latter is only possible if you are using an SFX or SFX-L PSU) and Graphics cards up to 245mm when connected vertically or up to 335mm when mounted horizontally (did I not mention that the GPU can be mounted vertically as well).

By default, the case supports the SFX power supply but the same can be replaced with an ATX alternative if needed. With the limited supply of SFX power supply and the heavy price tag attached with it, this is a wonderful feature to have.

Apart from the large graphics card, the case can also fit a Liquid cooler. This ensures that this case, in association, with the AIO can tame most modern CPUs. The case supports a wide range of fans, up to 2 120mm fans, on the side 2 120mm or 2 140mm fans, 2 120mm fans in the bottom, and 2 80mm fans on the back.

Galax suggests 2 configs on their website shown as below. One with the Graphics card vertically mounted and the other horizontally mounted.

Don’t let the small form factor fool you. It looks small but packs a punch. The only thing missing, in my opinion, on this cabinet is a handle on the top which could have been used to easily carry the cabinet around. Yes. It’s small enough to be carried around with ease.
