The panels are kept at 2-millimeter thickness for good rigidity and light weight, while the internal Aluminium structure can handle any load that can be placed inside it. Visually, the PC-Q38 looks gorgeous and little details, such as the diamond-cut line in the front panel enhance that feeling.

Enermax Releases Their Equilence Tempered Glass PC Case

After showing it off some months ago, Enermax is finally releasing their Equilence mid-tower PC case for the masses. Their Equilence is focused on providing ultra silent operation of the internal components, while keeping the tempered glass side window users are so fond off, and further fleshes out Enermax's case chops. This is done through the usage of high density, noise dampening foam on the top, front and left side of the case, leaving the tempered glass and breathing holes the only places where sound might escape through.

The top part of the foam can be removed for users to install extra fans or an up to 360 mm radiator, though that will, of course, reduce the sound dampening capabilites of the case. The left side panel uses 4 mm thick tinted panoramic glass, with dampening mechanisms on its mounting screws for reduced vibration. Users can mount a 360 mm, 240 mm or 120 mm radiator at the front of the unit, and a side wall offers room for an extra 240 mm or 120 mm radiator.

The Sharkoon AI7000 Silent is equipped with damping mats on both side panels, top panel and front panel. Sufficient space inside the case allows installation of a wide range of components: Install the power supply and up to three 3.5" hard drives decoupled within the tunnel on the case bottom. The AI7000 Silent also comes with two mounts for 2.5" drives behind the mainboard. Thanks to numerous openings, the mainboard can be discreetly cabled. CPU coolers up to a height of 17.5 cm can be installed thanks to a practical mainboard tray cutout.

SilverStone Adds Tempered Glass to Redline Case Series

SilverStone has just announced availability of their Redline chassis lineup. Aimed towards a more budget-conscious consumer, the Redline offers a standard ATX support and seven expansion slots in black and red or white and black color schemes (yes, you physics pundits are right when you say that black or white aren't colors...

Sharkoon Flaunt Their AM5 Case, Pacelight RGB System at Computex 2017

At5 Computex 2017, Sharkoon took the opportunity to set customer's eyes on their AM5 case, which features a modular front panel that can be swapped at will (provided you acquire the other options.) One of the most interesting characteristics of this case is that it will be sold in two options with differing materials for the side panels: one with an acrylic sheet, which is already a well-known material for those who want to gorge their eyes on their hardware; or with soundproof panels, which make sure not a whisper from your system's cooling can escape the confines of your case (at least from this particular side.)

Other characteristics are as usual, with a maximum 40 cm length for the graphics card, 16.7 cm for the CPU cooler, 20.5 cm for the power supply, support for 2x 140 mm fans on the front panel (pre-installed) or one of those 240 mm radiators; 1x 120 mm fan support on the back of the chassis; and up to 3x 120 mm fans or 2x 140 mm on the top of the case (we posit 280 mm AIOs can also be fit there).

Phanteks Showcases Their Unique EVOLV Shift, Shift X SFF Cases at Computex 2017

Two of the more unique mass-market designs on show on Computex 2017 have to be the Phanteks EVOLV Shift and Shift X SFF cases. These are the essence of a tower case (though they can also lie on their side like a roman citizen at dinner time, if you are so inclined.) These are aluminum and tempered-glass crafted cases, with a ridiculous 17 (W) x 27 (D) x 48 (H) cm footprint on the Shift. The Shift X is the taller solution of the two, with a 65 cm height. These little cases than could support water cooling and component placement in multiple orientations, and include an integrated RGB controller to boot.

The front I/O contains just two USB 3.0 ports, but it's the interior which shines. Phanteks managed to cram a lot into such a compact form-factor. Motherboards will have to be of the mini-ITX type, there's no way around that; however, there's also with support for 2x PCI slots, and the Shift X brings support for 2x internal 3.5" and 2x 2.5" drives (you can also mount 2.5" solutions on the 3.5" bays, mind you.) It also supports PS2 PSUs, while the smaller Shift has to cut one of the 3.5" bays, and only supports SFF PSUs. However, for their sizes, both Shifts support 3x 120 mm and 3x 140 mm fans on the front of the case, and 1x 120 mm, 1x 140 mm fans on the bottom. The EVOLV Shift will retail for $110, while the Shift X brings that number up to $160.

Enermax Steelwing and Steelwing X Cases Pictured

Enermax showed off its Steelwing and Steelwing X cases. The Steelwing is a mini-ITX case with three expansion slots, so you don't run out of room for 2+ slots thick graphics cards. It's characterized by vertical metal inserts along the front-panel, which gives it an industrial look. Inside, you'll find room for more than one 3.5-inch drive bay, a 2.5-inch bay, a prominent LED-lit 120 mm front intake fan, and room for a top exhaust. The case is available in silver with green LED lighting, and clear tempered glass side panel; and black with red LED lighting and slightly tinted tempered glass side panel.

The Steelwing X is a scale-up of the Steelwing design. It is a micro-ATX case in almost ATX mid-tower proportions. It can hold on to micro-ATX motherboards with 5 expansion slots, so you get to install a dual-slot graphics card on even the bottom-most slot. Yaou get a large number of drive bays, vast clearance for graphics cards and CPU coolers, and three 120 mm front-intakes, besides top exhausts. This case will be available in similar color combinations to the Steelwing.

Aerocool Quartz and Quartz Pro Cases Pictured

Aerocool showed off the Quartz mid-tower and Quartz Pro full-tower cases at the 2017 Computex. The two feature a consistent design theme, with a large polygonal acrylic front window, tempered glass side panels, and factory-fitted RGB LED fans, with IR remote control for the lighting, color, and fan-speed. The Quartz features a fixed front window since it lacks an exposed 5.25-inch drive bay; while the Quartz Pro has a front door with the acrylic window, which opens up into the front intakes and an exposed 5.25-inch drive bay. As the larger case, the Quartz Pro has room for larger E-ATX motherboards, with more drive bays, and mounts for larger 140 mm fans (although the three 120 mm intakes are carried over from the Quartz).

Nanoxia Project S Family Pictured - Standard, Mini, and Midi

Nanoxia showed off its entire lineup of Project S series pedestal orientation-capable cases. The cases can be oriented flat along their sides (pedestal), so you can revel upon your creation through their all-tempered glass side panels; or be made to save space by orienting them as common towers. The Project S Mini is designed for mini-ITX gaming PC builds, in which you can install a full-length 2-slot graphics card using the included riser cable. It can hold onto an SFX power supply.

The Project S Midi is designed for micro-ATX builds, with its PSU and drive bays located where you'd expect them to be in a common tower-type case. The Project S (standard) is where the action is - capable of seating ATX motherboards, this case has loads of room for your liquid cooling setup. All three cases are characterized by a brushed-finish aluminium front panel that protrudes out of the fascia.

A Brief Stroll Through the Jonsbo Booth - UMX 5, VR1, C4, and More

Ahead of their official Computex 2017 unveiling, we took a brief stroll through Jonsbo's booth, and took a peek under the covers to reveal some fascinating creations of anodized aluminium and tempered glass. The styling on these cases includes matte aluminium with brushed finish, and diamond-cut edges, mated with tinted-black tempered glass panels. The first case that caught our attention was the VR1, a cuboidal SFF chassis for mini-ITX builds, with a pedestal motherboard tray, a graphics card bay which utilizes the 399 mm height of the case to hold graphics cards up to 32 cm in length, using a PCIe riser. The case also takes advantage of its height and motherboard tray orientation to free up room for CPU coolers as tall as 19 cm.

Next up is the new UMX 5. Featuring a characteristic vertical striped front fascia, this case is made of 0.5 mm-thick aluminium-magnesium alloy, with 5 mm-thick tempered glass over the side panel. It measures 224 mm x 507 mm x 485 mm (WxHxD), and serves up room for E-ATX (and smaller) motherboards, with graphics cards up to 32.5 cm in length, and CPU coolers up to 16.6 cm in height. Cooling includes three 120 mm front intakes, two top exhausts, two bottom intakes, and a rear exhaust. The radiator support works out accordingly.
Pictured above: three colors of UMX 5, VR1, C4, and two unnamed cases.

Is Wood the Next Big Case Material? In Win Thinks So

In Win is one of the most influential brands when it comes to case-design, the company is at the cutting edge of implementing new materials. If 2015-16 was all about tempered glass, 2017-18 could be about wood, at least that's what In Win thinks so. The company unveiled two cases with plywood (particle-board) panels, the In Win 806 ATX mid-tower, and the Gaming Cube A1 cubical mini-ITX. Both cases feature a slightly lime-tinted wood panel. On the 806, it dominates the design running from the front to the top; on the A1, it finishes off the top. Both cases further feature aluminium and tempered glass, the two other premium materials for PC cases.

The Gaming Cube A1 measures 200 mm x 268 mm x 340 mm (WxHxD), and features a pedestal-type layout for its motherboard tray, which frees up room for a dual-slot (well, 2.5-slot) graphics card up to 31.5 cm in length. It can hold an SFX power-supply, and a CPU cooler up to 16 cm in height. Cooling features include two 120 mm bottom intakes and a 120 mm exhaust each on the rear and side. The In Win 806, on the other hand, is a mid-tower measuring 215 mm x 490 mm x 468 mm, with room for CPU coolers as tall as 17 cm, and graphics cards as long as 32 cm. Cooling includes two 120 mm mounts each along the top, bottom, and front; and a rear exhaust. The case features reversible USB 3.1 type-C front-panel ports.

Lian Li Announces the PC-T70 Open-Bench Chassis

Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd is eager to announce the PC-T70 test bench. After productive collaboration, taking feedback from high-end PC hardware reviewers, Lian Li sought to create a test bench that could both provide unhindered access for enthusiasts who want to rapidly swap hardware, and those who like to use their test benches as a workstation. Lian Li's latest test bench is its most flexible yet - a sleek, minimal platform for easy hardware swapping, with an optional kit that encloses the bench with radiator mounts and an acrylic cover.

"Testing on an open bench requires careful planning, else it leads to misguided results. Most gamers have closed cases, affecting thermal, acoustic, and even performance results compared to exposed hardware. I'm working to represent that more accurately. While my measurements are easier to collect, more applicable, and completely objective, it was the close cooperation with Lian Li that helped move this project forward. The closed case gave me the platform I've been needing, and that readers have been asking for, to facilitate more realistic reviews." - Igor Wallossek - Senior Contributing Editor Tom's Hardware.
