The all-metal 2017 Falcon Northwest Tiki unit we received boasts a navy blue base with two metallic gray vertical stripes running along the front and top panels.
The paint job is pretty slick, resembling the iconic hood of a Mustang.
The new Tiki is still a slim and compact tower, measuring 13.25 by 4 by 13.5 inches (HWD), while the old one stood at 14 by 4 by 13.75 inches.
Left Panel Window
The left side features a window perfectly sized and positioned to let you look in at the GTX 1080. Given that Nvidia’s newest graphics cards are futuristic looking in their own right, it’s a nice touch of flair to an overall restrained design.
The right side panel can be opened without tools via two hand screws on the rear, giving you easy access to the interior. Any Mini-ITX build is tight to work in, but the inside is managed about as cleanly and efficiently as possible.
In addition to the Power and Reset buttons, the top panel includes a slot-loading DVD-RW drive, two USB 3.0 ports, a headphone jack, and a mic jack.
Around back, there are three more USB 3.0 ports, a USB-C port, four USB 2.0 ports, an Ethernet jack, an HDMI port, a DisplayPort connector, and audio lines.
The graphics card includes the usual suspects for modern cards to connect to your display: four DisplayPort connectors and an HDMI port.
