Zadak is a relative newcomer to the PC hardware scene, having only been around for a couple years. But that isn't stopping the new kid from showing off what it can do -- its new child, the MOAB II Elite, is one seriously good looking custom, water-cooled case, succeeding last year's MOAB II system.
Measuring 311 by 193 by 371 mm, (12.2 x 7.6 x 14.6 inches), and weighing in at 7.5 kg (16.5 lbs) this case is designed for Micro ATX motherboards and uses a riser cable to mount the GPU vertically. The brains of the PC is on the left, and cooling hardware including a 240 mm radiator and power supply are on the right. Sandwiched between these two sides is the water reservoir itself, milled into the center of the chassis to reduce tubing and the risk of water leaks.
Only the CPU is water-cooled, but MOAB II Elite does that in a stylish fashion with its own water block featuring RGB.
A case such as this wouldn't be complete without RGB, which is why next to whatever RGB your motherboard supports, the MOAB II Elite also comes with RGB for the chassis and along its baseplate. The chassis also has a water level indicator, temperature display, and a capacitive touch power switch.
As far as motherboard compatibility goes, this case can be used with a select number of Intel motherboards from the B360M, Z390M and Z490 range. AMD motherboard options are right now limited to the GIGABYTE B450M GAMING and GIGABYTE B450 AORUS M.
No word on pricing yet.

Oh wow, this looks cool! Most likely gonna be pricy: ~$175-250?Reply
What ASUS GPU is that? That looks interesting (but I'm a sucker for simplistic rectangular shapes heh)Reply
That's so bogus to leave the gpu out like that...Reply
I also wonder how user friendly assembly and maintenance is...
The distribution plate alone is probably $175-250. I'd be surprised if this was under $700.Shadowclash10 said:Oh wow, this looks cool! Most likely gonna be pricy: ~$175-250?
Stylish fashion water cooled case but what about efficiency ? ? ? ? ?Reply
The price is key here !
Hideous... And if you're going to make a "water cooled case" why would only the CPU be plumbed to be cooled? It also looks like your gpu would get dusty pretty quick since it's just sitting there in the open and lastly micro ATX sucks. The holes for standoffs and mounting screws are never where they belong.Reply
I just built a system for someone using a gigabyte micro ATX board and it was awful to work with. It also didn't come with a backplate and gigabyte support has been awful.
First I go on the website and submit a ticket with my receipt... they tell me to email this special address so I do, nobody ever replies so I update the original ticket and 9 min later I finally get a response and even though I attached pictures of the receipt they asked me for pictures of the receipt so I send them again and then hear nothing. So I go back to the ticket and say they aren't replying again and now I'm supposed to call.
I mean Jesus I'll pay for the damn back plate that wasn't in the box just let me talk to someone!
