MonsterLabo had their 'The First' small form factor case on display at the Seasonic booth. Measuring in at 200 x 200 x 400 mm, The First only weighs around 10 kg. It can house a mini-ITX motherboard, a graphics card with a length up to 270 mm, an ATX or SFX power supply, one 3.5-inch drive, and three 2.5-inch drives. The case features a high-performance and fanless cooling solution capable of dissipating up to 200 W of heat. The radiator is shared between the processor and graphics card. There is also a single fan mount for a 120 mm or 140 mm fan to increase the cooling capacity to 300 W. For connectivity, The First has two USB 3.0 ports on the front panel. Consumers can fully customize the front panel with different painted and patterned skins and other surfaces like glass, wood, copper or leather.
