Raidmax Intros the X08 Tower-type Open Air Chassis

Raidmax today introduced the X08, a quasi-open air ATX mid-tower chassis. A collection of stamped out sheet-metal bolted to tempered glass side panels, the X08 holds a standard ATX motherboard with 7 add-on card slots. Its motherboard tray has room for graphics cards up to 40 cm in length, and CPU coolers up to 15 cm in height.

There are no drive cages as such, and you're left to mount 2.5-inch drives along the spinal panel with the motherboard tray. The only fan mounts are three 120 mm along the top panel, letting you install a 360 mm x 120 mm radiator there. Front-panel connectivity includes a pair of USB 3.0 ports, and HDA jacks. The case measures 610 mm x 255 mm x 525 mm (LxWxH). The company didn't reveal pricing.

The Raidmax lettering on the glass gives it an ultra premium feel.

That's sarcasm, just in case you didn't pick up on it

There was a big explosion in the Raidmax factory, and all their cases were blown apart. To recoup some of their losses, they spot-welded case parts together, stuck some glass on the side, and the X08 was born.

Kudos to Raidmax for something innovative and certainly appropriate to some use cases. I'd have too much trouble with dust, but this is cool to see. I hope it sells enough to warrant their boldness.

If mining takes off again, heck, could work.
