Lepa Shows New LPC501 Case, Previews 360D Cooler

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.

Lepa highlighted its Computex 2014 with new cases, power supplies and cooling, with some unique designs that caught our eye.

The LPC501 features six dual-format (3.5" / 2.5") drive trays in two cages, where the center cage can be removed to allow installation of extra-long graphics cards. Having only the standard seven expansion slots, this budget gaming case is expected to sell for around $50 in August.

New versions of Lepa's AquaCharger liquid cooling system are also expected later this year, including both 120 mm and dual 120 mm (aka 240 mm) models. Design improvements give us hope for vastly superior performance compared with previous products of its sister brand.

Part of that hope rests with Lepa's "360D" radiator design, in which the fins contact the entire periphery of radiator tubes. The background image shows the dismantling of a traditionally-designed radiator. We place some additional hope with the system's new, 3-speed selectable fan.

Lepa also display its previously announced, but still unreleased LPC801 full-tower. It is equipped with nine expansion slots and two high-current USB charging connectors. Distribution of this model is expected by the end of this year.

    OH, I get it. If you live on the East Coast of the USA, you pronounce "Leper" as "Lepa", and you avoid lepers like the plague. OK, enough of this silliness.
