DeepCool's new SteamCastle enclosures look funky!
Editor's Note: While Computex took place last week and all of the news announcements are behind us, we're still sorting through hundreds of in-person meetings and demonstrations, picking out just a few more of the most interesting items we saw up close.
At Computex 2014 DeepCool announced a new chassis called the SteamCastle. This chassis indeed looks like a SteamPunk inspired chassis.
Inside the chassis users will find an unusual Micro-ATX layout. The bottom segment of the chamber houses the PSU and a number of hard drives, while the upper segment will house the motherboard, cooling hardware, and graphics cards. Graphics cards can measure up to 320 mm long, with CPU coolers up to 200 mm tall. There is also support for a 240 mm water cooling unit, as there is a large front 200 mm fan installed as the default kit. Rear exhaust is dealt with by a 120 mm fan, although a 140 mm fan can be mounted.
Front I/O is handled by a relatively standard kit consisting of two USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports, along with the standard set of HD audio jacks. There's also a fan control dial.
DeepCool indicated that the chassis would carry an MSRP of about $150. It will be available in black, white, yellow, and red, some of which will come in matte variants (which have a very nice feel to it), and others will come in glossy variants. Some colors will be available in both versions.
