  • Meet the end user demand on a tower HTPC case

  • Aluminum panel with a clean look and behind door connection ports

  • More hard drive spaces (6) to meet the increased data storage needs

  • Support full height / length PCI devices and video graphic card, no wiser card needed, no blocking with optical drive or hard drive

  • Excellent air flow design and quiet fans to keep the noise and heat low

  • At the mean time, maintain the compact size of the chassis. Especially the depth

  • Easy Installation. Move the PSU back to the normal position. Intelligent design of architecture to simplify your installation as easy as 1-2-3. Click on the user guide for more detail.
