Nanoxia, of the DeepSilence fame, unveiled a string of new yet-unnamed cases. One of them is this box-type mini-ITX beauty. Roughly the size and shape of a micro-ATX tower, this is definitely one for those with an ITX itch, or at least those who prefer a smaller motherboard, with rest of the case' room better spent accommodating drives and cooling. The case gives you a horizontal mini-ITX motherboard tray with two expansion slots for double-slot graphics cards, and room for CPU coolers as much as 170 mm tall. The case' lone 5.25-inch drive bay creeps into the motherboard tray just a little, but shouldn't obstruct CPU coolers. The bottom half of the case gives you a vertically-oriented PSU bay, a drive-cage that gives you three 3.5-inch bays that each convert to a couple of 2.5-inch ones; and room for a 140 x 280 mm radiator. The case appears to be made of SECC steel, ABS, and aluminum highlights and feet. Ventilation includes two 140 mm front intakes, 120 mm and 140 mm rear exhausts, and provision for a 140 mm top exhaust.

Umm... that looks like the internals of a Bitfenix Prodigy?
There are only so many ways you can build a PC case. The Deep Silence 1 was basically a copy of the Fractal Design Define R3/R4 with a few refinements. Likewise, this is definitely strongly inspired by Bitfenix's design. There is a reason for that: these are good designs, so tweaking them is likely to get better results than trying to come up with something from scratch.

SilverStone is very good at creating original designs that also have excellent performance, but they're about the only company doing real innovation in the PC case market these days.
