DeepCool QuadStellar Four-lobed Chassis Starts Selling

DeepCool started selling the QuadStellar four-lobed chassis, which made its debut way back in January, at the 2017 CES. An upscale of the TriStellar design, The QuadStellar design uses two diagonally-opposite lobes along with the central hub as the main compartment of the case that has the motherboard tray, with the other two lobes making up power and storage compartments. What's changed between the production case and the one showcased earlier, is that its green GamerStorm-specific LED lighting made way for RGB multi-color LED lighting.

The DeepCool QuadStellar is marketed by its makers as an ATX full-tower, which means there's room for EATX motherboards, besides standard ATX and smaller motherboard form-factors. The central chamber holds the motherboard tray and 8 expansion slots, there are six additional slots inside another lobe, so you can install your high-end graphics cards there, connecting through a riser, to take advantage of the tempered glass windows, to show off your creation. Other lobes house the PSU bay, and a number of drive caddies (eight 3.5-inch and five 2.5-inch). The case measures 523 mm x 485 mm x 485 mm. Cooling includes six 120 mm front intakes, 2x 120 mm side exhausts along two lobes, and three rear exhausts.

Gotta say this is a really cool design.

But is it a *cool* design? Small compartments with limited cooling options and lots of small airflow channels. Hmmmm

Hard to quantify the benefits of this design, beyond "it looks different".

This is bizarre! A good bizarre though. And it has EATX compatability. Time to seriously consider a dual Xeon system..

I think the news article left out the specs.. but it can hold a shed load of fans so I do not believe it will be an issue when properly outfitted.

Looks like they tested it as well in their labs... (missing a couple slides from their facebook release).
