DeepCool Nephrite ITX Case Lets You Flaunt Your Graphics Card to the Max

DeepCool, which is on a roll with cases such as the Tristellar, unveiled a slew of unique new case designs at Computex; beginning with the GamerStorm Nephrite. This slim, console-sized case, which measures 330 mm x 100 mm x 428 mm (DxWxH), features a two-compartment design, much like the ones we see in cases such as the RVZ02 by SilverStone, except for its asymmetric design, and its top (add-on card) compartment, which is transparent on three sides, letting you flaunt your high-end graphics card. So now, when you say your machine runs a GTX Titan X, or a Fury, you'll mean it.

The rest of the case is made of steel, with carbon fiber pattern cladding, cutouts at the right spots, and an interesting vent pattern. The motherboard tray seats a standard-height mini-ITX motherboard, with room for CPU coolers as tall as 120 mm, with a 120 mm fan mount right over it. You should have just enough room to stack an AIO liquid cooler block, with a 35 mm-thick radiator and one 25 mm-thick 120 mm spinner right over it. The case offers room for an SFX power supply. Now, if only NVIDIA bundled a $2 back-plate with its GTX Titan X, like it did with the GTX 980.

SilverStone Unveils Raven RVZ02 Mini-ITX Gaming Chassis

ASRock Develops Mini-ITX LGA2011v3 Motherboard with Quad-Channel Memory

They've done it! After building the first LGA2011v3 motherboard in the mini-ITX form-factor, letting you cram up to 8 "Haswell" cores into a lunchbox-sized PC, albeit having to make do with just dual-channel memory; ASRock developed the first mini-ITX motherboard with not just LGA2011v3, but also its full quad-channel memory interface, called the EPC612D4I. There's just one rider, which shouldn't really be a dealbreaker - this is a server-grade motherboard, and is bound to be expensive.

The EPC612D4I achieves its quad-channel memory chops by using smaller DDR4 SO-DIMM slots instead of standard-sized DIMM slots. Availability of aftermarket DDR4 SO-DIMM memory is close to non-existent, but that could change with 6th Generation Core processor notebooks hitting the shelves by Holiday 2015. As an enterprise board, it also supports Xeon E5-1600 V3 and E5-2600 V3 processors.

XIGMATEK Intros Nebula C Case in Pink, Purple, Yellow, and Two Shades of Green

DeepCool Launches GamerStorm TriStellar ITX Chassis

A week after its debut as part of CyberPowerPC's Trinity gaming desktop, DeepCool launched the GamerStorm TriStellar mini-ITX chassis, so PC enthusiasts can cram in whatever hardware they want. It may be designed for mini-ITX motherboards only, but this is not a lunchbox sized case you can tuck away behind your flatscreen. It measures 435 mm x 395 mm x 388 mm (WxDxH), and takes up the same volume inside a carton as a cubical ATX case of comparable dimensions would.

Its design involves three temperature-isolated chambers with a triangular projection, which converge at a central hub for cabling to route between them. The bottom-right chamber houses a standard-height mini-ITX motherboard tray with just enough clearance for a stock CPU cooler (up to 80 mm height), or an AIO liquid cooling block with a 120 mm radiator. The bottom-left chamber houses the standard ATX PSU bay, a slimline optical drive bay, and two 3.5-inch drive bays. The top chamber has three expansion slot covers, although there's just one PCI-Express gen 3.0 x16 riser. There's enough volume for a GeForce GTX TITAN-Z dual-GPU graphics card. This chamber offers another three 3.5-inch tray-type drive bays with hot-plugging back-planes and 2.5-inch support. DeepCool didn't disclose pricing.
