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.
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.
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.
Here, here. Can't have put it better myself.
Case only exists to prey on people's fears and ignorance
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.
