Rosewill Announces RISE Slim Full Tower Cases

Rosewill announced the RISE line of slim ATX full-tower cases. Available in two variants, the RISE, and RISE Glow (featuring illuminated fans), these cases are low on depth, and should be less stuffy to tuck away under your desk. They measure 233 mm x 440 mm x 550 mm (WxDxH), dry-weighing 14 kg, and are made mostly of SECC steel. The two achieve their relatively low depth by doing away with drive bays lining the front side, and instead positioning them along the bottom, thereby creating room for long graphics cards.

Storage features on the Rosewill RISE include two 5.25-inch drive bays (from which one converts to 3.5-inch external), and two 3.5-inch bays, which each convert to 2.5-inch. An additional 2.5-inch drive can be bolted to the top of this cage. Cooling system includes three 120 mm front intakes (blue illuminated fans on the RISE Glow), a 140 mm rear exhaust, two 140 mm top exhausts, and an additional 80 mm rear exhaust. Front-panel connectivity includes two USB 3.0 ports, four USB 2.0/1.1 ports, and HDA jacks.

On the Clock with Parvum Systems

The modding and custom water cooling scene has never been a particularly stable or reliable medium to build a business in and around of, with its intrinsically superfluous character making it a particularly risky bet for a start-up of any sort, and indeed a losing bet for very many of those who did bite the bullet, invested the money and delivered the goods, but failed to capitalize on what can best be described as a frivolous demand. A multitude of brands with a wide variety of products have come and gone, while some of those still on the scene are slowly fading into irrelevance, all of whom failed to correctly grasp the nature of that demand.

Thankfully, all is not gloom, this is a vibrant scene I'm talking about, with many household names that have been around for many many years, and some quite new ones also, doing very well and in some instances thriving. All of whom brought and bring to market products that not only meet existing demand, but primarily come to generate it. While generally a low volume market, the sheer variety of products is quite overwhelming, from completely over the top contraptions such as the Aqua Computer GIGANT radiators or the obscenely expensive, functional artwork boasting the Murderbox branding, to grotesquely designed and executed kitsch that will remain unnamed, in-between you'll find anything meeting every taste or budget. And from this busy, vibrant and idiosyncratic scene a new player by the name or Parvum Systems is looking to carve a piece for itself.
