 Build Quality

The build quality of the Gabriel is ok but not great. The fan clips are flimsy but they do hold the 120x120x20mm fan in place. The mounting is via 4 screws and no backplate – whilst easy to do, the fit felt a little lax and I saw some evidence of poor connectivity with the CPU heat spreader to the point where I used a bit more thermal paste than usual get better heat transfer. On the positive side, the manual is easy to follow and the main unit and fan didn’t feel fragile. The previously reviewed Lucifer by comparison felt like it was of better build quality than the Gabriel even though it’s from the same Gamer Storm Line up.

Overall, I’d say that the build quality is “ok” and certainly not “premium”.
