The new ORIGIN CHRONOS can also be placed vertically, horizontally, or even upside-down thanks to its detachable magnetic feet and rotating logo making it a perfect choice for any living room, bedroom or small office setting.

"With the ability to fit up to an NVIDIA GeForce TITAN X and up to 5 hard drives, our new CHRONOS is the best small form factor PC on the market for VR, streaming, 4K, or really any high end application," said Kevin Wasielewski ORIGIN PC CEO and co-founder. "The new CHRONOS is so small, yet so deceptively powerful thanks to its support for high-performance components like overclocked Intel Core i7 processers and up to 32GB of RAM. The CHRONOS is the best small form factor PC for VR with its compact size, high-performance, upgradability, configuration options, and U.S based 24/7 lifetime support. Have a question about your VR PC at 3AM? ORIGIN PC is here to help!"

Besides not wanting my PC look like a XBox and would of been nice to allow air be drawn in from the fan area i kinda like it. More so when it's flat down as the heatpipes of the CPU ( if any ) and the GFX card should work as they were designed.

Dammit, just want that case screw the rest of it.

I agree, its a good looking case but I would not spend the money on buying an ORIGIN PC. Unfortunate because it seems well designed.

I bet they would earn more if they just went ahead and sold the chassis separately. I for one won't mind shelling out a sum for just the case since it is hard to find a decent one. All itx with that form of chassis feels a bit too big for me (Silverstone's etc)

Drill some holes through the perspex before you install the GPU and it might be alright. Putting a Titan Z up against that is asking for heat issues.
