Disappointing: Hyte Y40 Case Review - Thermals, Noise, & Cable Management

Sponsor: Linode Cloud Computing by Akamai - https://geni.us/CBl2fS
The Hyte Y40 case was a let-down: The case had excellent potential going into this review, and while we found its build quality to be high, we unfortunately found its thermal and acoustic design lacking. The case further makes major changes against the Y60 that jeopardize the original, unique positioning of the brand by casting it into a sea of other O11-like cases. The Y60 maintains its strong positioning, but the Y40 flubs and loses to the likes of the Lian Li Lancool III and other similarly priced cases on the market.
