HDPlex H3 V2 Fanless Chassis Pictured

Here are some of the first pictures of HDPlex H3 V2 fan-less HTPC chassis. The H3 sits between the tiny H1 and deck-sized H5. It has the height of the H5 and the width of the H1. The case measures 270 mm x 264 mm x 93 mm (WxDxH), weighing in at 5.5 kg. Its main chamber can house mini-ITX motherboards, and a half-height add-on card that's no more than 1-slot thick. As with most fan-less cases, the chunky, ridged aluminium body of the H3 V2 doubles up as heatsink for the CPU/SoC, and can handle thermal loads of up to 80W. The CPU block uses eight 6 mm-thick copper heat pipes to transport heat to the body. The case also has room for up to four 7 mm-thick 2.5-inch drives. Available now, it is priced at USD $240.

Raidmax Intros the Gama Mid-tower Chassis

Raidmax today introduced the Gama ATX mid-tower chassis (not to be confused with the NZXT Gamma). The case is characterized by a glossy and bulbous front-top section made of ABS plastic, which comes in four colors - white, piano-black, bright-green, and orange. Contrasting it are matte-black vertical slats. The left side-panel is dominated by a 4 mm-thick tinted tempered-glass panel.

Inside, you'll find a horizontally-partitioned layout, with the top compartment housing the motherboard tray, while the bottom one, which is enclosed from one side, holds the PSU and a couple of 3.5-inch drive bays. Two additional 2.5-inch drives can be mounted behind the motherboard tray. Cooling system includes either three 120 mm or two 140 mm front intakes, either three 120 mm or two 140 mm top exhausts, and a 120 mm rear exhaust. Front panel connectivity is basic, with two USB 3.0 ports (standard header) and HDA jacks. The company didn't reveal pricing.

GIGABYTE Intros Aorus AC300W Lite Chassis

GIGABYTE today released the Aorus AC300W Lite chassis, a slightly scaled down variant of its AC300W chassis with VR-Link. The Lite variant does away with the original's USP, the VR-link connection. The original has a front-panel HDMI port that plugs into the "VR-Link" internal HDMI ports of certain Aorus-branded graphics cards. The Lite variant also does away with the glowing Aorus logo on the bottom compartment cover. The rest of its specifications remain unchanged. You still get the RGB LED-illuminated front panel Aorus logo and accents, controllable by GIGABYTE RGB Fusion software.

Inside, you'll get a conventional horizontally-partitioned layout, with room in the top compartment for graphics cards up to 40 cm in length, and CPU coolers up to 17 cm in height; and the bottom compartment housing two 3.5-inch drive bays, in addition to the PSU bay. Two additional 2.5-inch drives can be mounted behind the motherboard tray. Ventilation includes either three 120 mm or two 140 mm front intakes, two 140/120 mm top exhausts, and a 120 mm rear exhaust. The company didn't mention pricing.

DeepCool Intros Earlkase RGB White Edition

DeepCool today introduced the White Edition variant of its Earlkase RGB mid-tower case. The case features a predominantly matte-white front, and interiors, with matte-black contrasting elements. The tempered glass panel that covers the entire left-side panel is slightly tinted. RGB LED elements in the design include the rear 120 mm fan, and a diffuser along one of the front panel edges. Internally, the case features a contemporary horizontally partitioned layout, with shrouds over not just the bottom partition, but also towards the front, where you'd normally hide a 360 x 120 mm radiator.

The top compartment, which houses the motherboard tray, has room for graphics cards up to 34 cm in length, and CPU coolers up to 16.5 cm in height. Storage areas include two 3.5-inch/2.5-inch drive bays in the bottom compartment, and four 2.5-inch drive mounts above the partition. Ventilation includes three 120 mm or two 140 mm front intakes, two 140 mm or two 120 mm top exhausts, and a 120 mm rear exhaust (fan included). Front panel connectivity includes USB 3.0 and USB 2.0/1.1 ports, and HDA jacks. Measuring 500 mm x 203.5 mm x 510.5 mm (LxWxH), the case dry-weighs around 8.1 kg. The company didn't reveal pricing.

Streacom Readies Fanless GPU Heatsink for DB4 Chassis

Expert fan-less case maker Streacom is putting final touches to its fan-less GPU heatsink for the DB4 cube-shaped chassis. The cooler transports heat drawn from the GPU onto the main body panels of the DB4, which dissipate it. Its design is similar to the CPU heatsink included with the case, in which a GPU base where four 6 mm-thick copper heat pipes make direct contact with the GPU, transport it onto a second block that makes contact with the innner wall of the body panel. The cooler comes with included heatsinks for memory and VRM of the graphics card, and is designed to handle thermal loads of up to 65-75W, which would mean lower-mainstream graphics cards such as the GeForce GTX 1050 (or below), and the Radeon RX 550 (or below).

Thermaltake Unveils the New View 91 Tempered Glass RGB Edition

Thermaltake, a leading premium gaming tower manufacturer, announced the immediate availability of the new Thermaltake View 91 Tempered Glass RGB Edition Super Tower Chassis at CES 2018 at the Venetian Hotel Veronese 2402 Suite from January 9th (Tue) to 12th (Fri).

Lian Li to Resurrect the LanCool Brand

Lian Li announced that it is resurrecting the LanCool brand of gaming PC cases. LanCool branded cases are differentiated from the main Lian Li series in typically being of a lower cost, having more steel in place of aluminium, and breaking away from the restrained and minimalist style Lian Li is known for. LanCool cases compete with some of the more mainstream ATX mid-tower and micro-ATX tower-type cases. With the advent of RGB multi-color LED lighting, tempered glass, and horizontally-partitioned designs, Lian Li probably sees a market in resurrecting a new gaming PC case line without diluting the Lian Li identity. The first LanCool cases post its resurrection, will be shown off at the 2018 International CES, which begins later this week. Below are some of LanCool's cases that are nearly a decade old. If they look contemporary today, they would have looked ahead of their time back then.
