Huntkey PC Chasis Offers Radiation Protection

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 53 comments

This chassis could help prevent acne and hair loss!

Last week Huntkey Enterprise Group revealed its new SHIELD chassis slated for a global launch. The big deal behind its upcoming PC case is that it supposedly protects the end-user against radiation generated by PC components. This means the chassis could possibly reduce acne, balding and infertility--three side effects associated with PC-generated radiation.

According to the company, the chassis adopts full-body radiation protection and a TAC 2.0 design. The rack is made of premium conductive metal while a large steel mesh front panel ensures excellent ventilation, dust and radiation protection. It also has an independent USB rack wrapped with metal, EMI shrapnel embedded in the rear PCI slot for better chassis shielding, ventilation diameters smaller than 5.5-mm for an optimal balance between radiation protection and ventilation, metal panels shielding the HDD, and more.

"The inspiration of Huntkey SHIELD H405 case is from heavy trucks, which stands for power and defense capability," said Jack Ye, from Huntkey industrial design department. "The whole case is designed by matt black color, which provides mysterious, stable, and sturdy visual attacks. The large steel mesh front panel and set-top connector handles reflect our concerns among excellent ventilation, dust and radiation protection and humanized factor."

As indicated, the overall design was inspired by military vehicles, 18-wheelers and even city-sanctioned utility trucks. The Huntkey SHIELD H405 chassis supports Intel Core i5 and i7 CPUs and liquid cooling. The specs also call for seven expansion slots, two USB 2.0 ports, a 120-mm fan for the front and an optional 120-mm fan in the rear, three 5.25-inch bays and seven 3.5-inch bays. The chassis is Micro ATX/ATX and measures 475 x 190 x 450-mm (L x W x H). The chassis also adopts a tool-free design.

Huntkey did not provide pricing or availability.

    LOL

    Acne is from the chips and soda you keep chugging down on the PC.
    Balding is from the useless stress from nerd-raging.
    Infertility is only because you cannot impregnate a human hand.

    What a load of baloney!
    I have been using computers since I was 9 and at 36, everything is still functioning very well thank you with 2 kids to show for it.
    The only real use for this case might be the other way - to protect the HDD from data loss against perhaps an EMP attack, or maybe a nuclear bomb in the next town. If those aren't real threats where you live, then it's a waste of money.

    Here, here. Can't have put it better myself.

    Case only exists to prey on people's fears and ignorance

    yeah, they can try to sell that load... see who buys it.
    BTW, never heard of anyone actually measuring the amount of radiation emitted by a PC, never mind the effects on humans or other living beings.
    This whole thing is pure marketing gimmick for ... naive people, to put it gently.

    Any metal computer case will have excellent EM shielding and the power levels generated inside a computer are pretty small. Its just a great big marketing ploy playing on peoples fear of random crap that may kill them if taken in a much larger dose than is possible.

    really??? i have been using computer for over 15 years now and i was able to have a beautiful daughter, infertility??? i don't think so...this is a load of crap...wait, i just lost some hair and got a pimple on my arse, lol. crap i tell you, it's called life...get used to it

    Well looks like a crap case, but as long as if the sun emmits too much radiation, all radio waves will be down, ill be fried, but atleast my computer will be safe!

    Where is the lead or beryllium shielding.I expect it to stop or reflect neutron radiation.

    Is it secretly a case with shielding to prevent TEMPEST-like side-channel attacks?

    Nice to know the case supports Intel CPUs directly. Cuts out a fair bit of expense from my next build. ;)

    Right, because those three things didn't exist before the late 20th century. Oh wait.

    It's more likely that the pompous people who work at Huntkey need to shield the engine bays of their Prius. The Prius electric battary generates way more radiation than a PC...

    Are you sure you have a kid, it may be an illusion created by the radiation coming from your PC :)  Why not buy a possibly cheaply made case that may be vastly overpriced, to find out :) 

    anyway

    Also aren't computer components heavily regulated by many places such as the FCC to prevent these problems.

    Also the company doesn't seem to have any scientific data to back up their statements. or proof of their case working.

    Also radiation shielding only works when the source of the radiation is 100% shield, a pinhole is enough to significantly reduce the effectiveness of the shielding.

    If you look at a nuclear reactor, the reason why you have such large teams of highly trained people to handle the reactor is not because of a meltdown (it is nearly impossible to happen with current facilities, what they are scared of is a microscopic breach of the shielding as it is enough to kill many people over a short time

    How much shielding will you have when you have a 5 inch+ hole for the dvd drive, and a few other large holes for the 120mm fans, then the additional large holes caused by the installation of things like a videocard, sound card and other pci/pcie/agp devices.

    well i agree with all of the above about this "radiation protection" gimmick they have going.

    But i like how it looks, if they don't charge crazy amounts for it then i might get it
