ASUS Introduces the VENTO TA-U Series Chassis

ASUS, leading producer of PC chassis, today released the new ASUS VENTO TA-U Series chassis. Targeting users who require a chassis that provides excellent functionality as well as trendy aesthetics, the VENTO TA-U Series utilizes an exquisitely handcrafted aluminum body and features exceptional ventilation for both performance and stability. It also allows users to enjoy hassle-free installation and optimized scalability—making it the best choice for gamers and power users alike.


Exquisitely Handcrafted Quality Design
The VENTO TA-U Series utilizes a unique frame welding technique to provide lightweight yet mechanically strong reinforcement for the whole frame. The sturdy design incorporates an aluminum body with brushed aluminum finishing on the faceplate as well as the top panel; while the optical drive bay is exquisitely framed with a diamond-cut technique. The faceplate is also overlaid with an anode treated bezel and the delicate VENTO logo name plate that exudes a premium and luxurious feel. The side panel also supports two transparent 12cm LED fans to radiate a cool blue lighting during operation—further enhancing the overall look and feel.

Maximized Thermal Efficiency for Continuous Operation
The VENTO TA-U Series provides support for four 12cm LED fans: a front intake fan, a rear exhaust fan, and two side fans—allowing fresh, cool air to be drawn into the casing for exceptional cooling capabilities (VENTO TA-U2 cooling fin edition supports an additional three LED fans on the top of the chassis). Heat generated from the system is expelled immediately via the rear fan, while side venting holes deliver even more cool air to circulate into the chassis—lowering CPU and video card temperatures. The VENTO TA-U Series even features pre-drilled liquid cooling pipe holes that allow users to prepare for future liquid cooling options. This maximized thermal efficiency enables long and continuous operations for the most powerful processing platforms and increases overall system performance and stability.

User-centric Design for Easy, Hassle-free Installation
Incorporating several convenient design features, the VENTO TA-U Series is user-friendly and easy to assemble. These features include trimmed and folded metal edges that protect fingers from scrapes and cuts. The ASUS screwless design allows users to easily and quickly install the ODD, HDD and PCI cards tool-free, without requiring screws or extra tools. The added space in the chassis also accommodates either a single graphics card of up to 315mm or SLI / Crossfire cards of up to 300mm. One of the four 5.25” racks can even be converted into 3.5” via a supplied bracket for more flexibility in the users’ setup. Furthermore, rubber shock absorbers in the side cover and foot stands eliminate vibrations that cause excessive noise for quiet and comfortable operation.

This is a Full Tower, right? It doesn't look bad at all, though I really would like to know the price.

i have to admit, that dose look quite nice

it seams like the TA-U2, could be good for water cooling with 3 X 120mm fans at the top, and the side fans are great too, ive been thinking of adding a fan the the side panel of my cosmos because things get hot with no air flow when using water cooling

It's too bad the original Vento (3600) was such a great looking case and all the follow-ups have just gotten more & more generic. Now the Vento line just looks like every other normal case out there.
