Paean M Micro-ATX Benchtable/Showcase

The semi-open benchtable has a stable base plate made of 3 millimetre thick, anodised black aluminium with a fine hairline finish. The two side parts made of lightly tinted tempered glass with a thickness of 4 millimetres, which makes it an ideal showcase.
The PAEAN M can be fitted with a water cooling unit, a 280 mm radiator and It supports both Mini-ITX and Micro-ATX motherboards. While on the outside there is room for a 3.5" and three 2.5" drives and an ATX power supply A power supply mounting frame ensures that PSUs up to 20 centimetres long can also be used.

The front of the chamber can accommodate either two 120 or 140 fans or a 240 or 280 mm radiator. Directly behind it, a vertical reservoir (e.g. a Raijintek RAI-R20 in the desired colour) can be attached to the aluminium base plate, so that nothing stands in the way of a complete custom water cooling system. The reservoir can also be monitored horizontally in the chamber underneath the motherboard. Depending on your preference, it is possible to turn the chamber into the front, with other components remain discreetly hidden on the back side.

Graphics cards built into the motherboard can be up to 43 centimeters long Coolers for the processor can be up to 14 centimetres high, with unlimited space available without the glass side panels. The easy-access I/O panel with four USB 3.0 ports and audio in/out can be mounted on the right or left side of the baseplate and also houses the power button.

The adapter slot cover is attached to the slot covers of the housing and supported by means of an adjustable stand on the bottom of the case or the PSU shroud.
The riser cable connects the graphics card to the PCIe slot of the motherboard. Its x16 slot is electrically connected with a full 16 lanes and thus provides the full bandwidth for graphics cards. A flexible flat ribbon cable with a length of 200 millimetres is used for data transmission.

The design doesn't look that good to me, at all... More of a mashup of different design styles, done badly. The wall mounted one is 'okay'... the rest, yike.
