If inter-tech is one thing, it’s cheap. And with the A-3411 Creek, they’ve put out another blast. A gaming case with integrated digitally addressable RGB LED stripes in the front, tempered glass side panel and contemporary power supply cover.
As a compact midi tower for mainboards up to ATX format, the case offers some conveniences. This is particularly impressive when the price is taken into account. Because according to the price comparison, there is no cheaper case on the market that combines these features.
You are now asking yourself whether the features have found their way into the case at the expense of the workmanship and material quality? Don’t worry, they haven’t. We were thrilled with the case – you want to know why? Then read on now!

Scope of delivery
The Inter-Tech A-3411 Creek is delivered in a plain brown cardboard box. This is only printed in black. So here Inter-Tech has already saved money, and that is a good thing. After all, who needs a case packaging with a high-gloss design?
Packed inside, the case is of course still perfect. Besides the obligatory padding, the side window is also covered on both sides with a protective film to prevent scratches.
The accessories are attached in a bag inside the case. Included are spacers (four are also pre-assembled), screws, cable ties and a speaker. A manual and fan are not included. The accessories are as far as not as exhausting as with high priced cases and also not as nicely packed, but absolutely sufficient. I could even have done without a speaker.
