Raidmax Readies the SIGMA Mid-tower Chassis

Raidmax is working on the SIGMA mid-tower chassis. The case features a unique horizontally-compartmentalized interior design that sets it apart from the scores of similar case designs. The horizontal partition, instead of running the entire length of the case, stops short of the front panel by a few centimeters. This frees up room for a large 360 mm x 120 mm radiator along the front-panel, including fans attached to its inner side.

The case features a brushed aluminium front-panel with four perforated steel polygonal intakes. The case provides room for 2.5-inch drive bays along the motherboard tray, and two 3.5-inch bays under the bottom compartment. Besides the three 120 mm front intakes, you get two 120 mm top exhausts, and a 120 mm rear exhaust. A tempered-glass side panel is thumb-screwed to the side. Front-panel connectivity include USB 3.0 ports (standard header) and HDA audio jacks. The company didn't reveal pricing or availability.

Cooler Master Announces the MasterCase 3 Pro Chassis

Cooler Master, a leading manufacturer of desktop components and peripherals, today announced the MasterCase Pro 3. This is the newest installment of the MasterCase series. The goal here was to create a case that gives users the same level of customization as the MasterCase 5 but for Micro-ATX builds.

"Based on our community research, we found that Micro-ATX motherboards are becoming increasingly popular. People using Micro-ATX motherboards also want a smaller case much of the time. Therefore, we decided to make the MasterCase Pro 3 smaller than the MasterCase 5 series," said Mark, Product Marketing lead for cases. "Being part of our MasterCase series, the Pro 3 is also modular thanks to our FreeFormTM system, allowing users to customize, adjust, and upgrade their case the way they want. Moreover, despite being a mini-tower, this case is able to handle large components like long PSUs, tall CPU coolers and long graphics cards. Users can finally enjoy powerful PC rigs without having to use an ATX case."

Be Quiet! Unveils the Dark Base 900 Chassis with Reversible MB Tray

Be Quiet! showed off a unique ATX full-tower chassis at Computex, the Dark Base 900, featuring a fully reversible motherboard tray. This lets you change the interiors between a standard layout, in which the motherboard faces the left side of the chassis with its I/O up top; and an inverted (BTX-like) layout, in which it faces the right panel, with its I/O at the bottom. This is possible by pulling out the rear panel that's attached to the tray, and inverting it. This also gives you the flexibility of installing your motherboard, CPU cooler, and add-on cards outside the case. The case features room for a 420 mm x 140 mm radiator along its front panel.

Streacom Announces the DB4 Chassis

Streacom introduces the DB4, its most ambitious fanless case to date, featuring a bisymmetrical design that is uniquely bold and blurs the lines between technology and art. With the DB4 we set out to not only redefine what a PC case could look like, but the performance and compatibility achievable from a fanless solution. Every element of this case subtly screams premium, from the 13mm thick extruded aluminium side panels to the precision CNC'd internal frame, all perfectly blended together with our characteristically understated design tone.

The identical sides of the case serve both as the striking monolithic exterior and the convection surface (or heat sink) for component cooling and is the basis of its fanless operation. The challenge was to create an efficient heat sink that didn't look industrial, one that would actually be integral to the sleek exterior, and the result speaks for itself. Each side can handle 65W of heat dissipation and can be coupled to provide 120W of total CPU cooling.

Reeven Intros the Rheia Mid-tower Chassis
