Deepcool seems to be gradually positioning itself into a genuine competitor in the high-end case market. Much like In Win did years earlier, when it released the first of what would grow into its “Signature” line of exclusive chassis, Deepcool has released a string of unconventional, quality-focused cases targeted at those who value novelty and aesthetics above practicality and performance. The two cases that most exemplify this are the Tristellar and Quadstellar.

The Ark 90 isn’t quite as unique, or expensive, as those two, but it’s still a level above in design compared to most cases. At $300, it’s also a level above most in cost, but that price buys you an included CPU water-cooling system and four RGB-lit fans. Specifically, the cooling system is based on Deepcool’s Captain AIO water cooler, but the water is additionally piped through an aesthetic water channel and flow indicator that is built into the front of the case. Other unique aesthetic features include integrated RGB-lit accents and a two-faced construction that features a glass left half and steel right half, not unlike the Lian Li PC-09.

If you like the Ark 90 but want an even more unique version of it, then you can get the new Electro Limited Edition version. Like NZXT and its Hyper Beast or Lian Li and its ROG edition cases, Deepcool has a history of making uniquely painted and colored versions of its regular cases. The first case to receive custom paint was the Tristellar, but with the Quadstellar Electro and Ark 90 Electro, Deepcool seems to have centered on a striking silver and orange color scheme. The Ark 90 Electro’s steel right half has been done up in orange, both internally and externally, and its left half remains glass-on-black. Like the Quadstellar Electro, the Ark 90 Electro is limited to 100 units, and each is uniquely numbered.

Deepcool didn’t detail the availability and cost of the Ark 90 Electro, but we’ve reached out to the company to find out how to acquire this unique case.

    I don't understand, in some of the photos and on Deepcool's website they show a Captain Series All-In-One cooler with two 140 fans (280mm) and sometimes with three 140 fans (420mm). Seems slightly deceptive.

    I like the color scheme of this case. It could make for some interesting modding experiments.

    What is the difference which cooler is on the photos of a case? It's not like ther're sold in combo. DeepCool has a Captain 360 with 3 fans. Captain 240 has 2 fans.

    From the article:

    The Ark 90 isn’t quite as unique, or expensive, as those two, but it’s still a level above in design compared to most cases. At $300, it’s also a level above most in cost, but that price buys you an included CPU water-cooling system and four RGB-lit fans.

    This mentions that there is a 280mm water cooler which would be 2 fans. I am guessing that the third fan is just a fan and not connected to the water cooler. It is not deceptive as long as you read the description and not just assume the size of the water cooler from the pictures.
