Cube-shaped micro-ATX cases tend to all look the same - often black cubical monoliths, DeepCool's latest creation, the Steam Castle, was unmistakable. Its two heatsink-like front pillars, and four top fan vents, give it a steampunk character, which you'll either love or hate. The vents push out heat from the bottom-oriented motherboard tray, which apparently has enough room for tall (30-ish centimeter) graphics cards, and tall CPU coolers (an NH-D14 should fit comfortably). There appears to be room for a standard ATX PSU, and four 3.5-inch / 2.5-inch drive bays. The case features an integrated fan controller for its top four fans, its front-panel connectivity includes two each of USB 3.0 and USB 2.0/1.1 ports, next to HDA front-panel audio jacks. The case will be branded under DeepCool's GamerStorm series.
