Cooltek UMX2 PC Case Packs Front-mounted Power Supply

Cooltek has announced a new chassis, the UMX2, which is as intriguing as its odd name. The case is an ATX enclosure, which can also house Micro-ATX and Mini-ITX motherboards. It has a sleek appearance, and oddly enough, a front-mounted power supply.

The case measures 445 x 200 x 421 mm, and is made from both steel and aluminum. Internally, users will find room for up to three 3.5" hard drives, two 2.5" drives, a single slimline slot-loading optical drive, as well as graphics cards up to 280 mm long and CPU coolers up to 150 mm tall.

Front I/O is handled by two USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports, as well as the standard set of HD audio jacks. It has room for up to five fans, with three 120 mm fans shipped with it straight out of the factory.

It is available now through select retailers in Europe, with a street price of €169.99. There was no word on whether it would be coming to the U.S., though we can imagine there would certainly be a market for it.
