    RAIDMAX is pleased to announce a mid tower chassis with a patented wide body design – COBRA. Designed with gamers' tastes in mind, this wide-bodied ATX and micro-ATX supporting chassis features LED lights, tool-less installations, and an effective thermal design. The 240mm (9.4") wide COBRA has plenty of interior space to fit the hardware gamers desires, and many tool-less features to make installations easy. Up to three 3.5" and four 2.5" hard drives can be installed in the HDD cages. The 2.5" HDD cage can be removed.

    These hard drives just slide into the bay thanks to the COBRA's rail slide technology. The three 5.25" bays also have a tool-free design, allowing for simple optical drive installation. The smart one-click 5.25" bay covers on the front of the case come off with limited effort, and make it even easier to install optical drives.

    With its wide body, the COBRA can accommodate CPU coolers up to 6.9" tall, and has a roomy 25cm behind the motherboard tray for cable management. There are seven vented PCI slots and expansion cards up to 16.3" in length fit in the chassis when the 2.5" HDD cage is removed.

    Effective Thermal Design
    The front 120mm LED fan has a green glow, adding a gaming ambiance to the case and the room. The rear 120mm black exhaust fan blends in unobtrusively with the rest of the case. At the top of the RAIDMAX COBRA two 120mm fans or one 180mm fan can be placed adding more cooling ability. Also, another 120mm fan can be placed on the floor on the chassis.

    Underneath where the power supply sits is a PSU fan filter to help increase the life span of the power supply. The COBRA also supports water cooling with three rubber grommets in the rear of the chassis for water cooling tubes.

    Easy Access Connectivity
    The I/O panel with one USB 3.0, one USB 2.0 and audio ports is easily accessible on the front of the chassis. The power button and reset button sit on opposite sides of the I/O panel.

    Price/Availability
    The RAIDMAX COBRA will be available in the US and Canada in December for the suggested retail price of US$69.99. For more information, visit the product page.

    Looks ok-ish on the outside, though it could do with a plate covering the empty DVD etc bays. Inside is green o_O kinda cool i guess, but those HDD bays look very basic. Not a huge amount of fan mounting options either. Certainly not an enthusiast case.

    Not exactly, there is an option to remove the middle hdd bay for larger cards. Or if you want to be more creative with water cooling, you could mount a pump/ resvr as well. ;)

    I like the green inside and the general look. I wish case manufacturers would stop being stingy on their window sizes. I want to see my fancy kit clearly!

    When will the case be released?

    Waiting for this case to be released,
    used the old cobra for one of my first builds.

    the new cobra is exactly what i'm looking for, for my next build, love the cable management and removal of drive bays, i actually like not having a big plastic door to open to get to my drives.

    Not to mention smsrp of 69.99

    Should fit all of my new peices perfectly not to mention cooling gear.

    come on raidmax Release it already

    Ooh, it's not blue or red! +1 for novelty, -2 for looks.
