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.
In November 2013, we jokingly accused Xigmatek of being a bunch of Martians who design cases from in a hut. Well, at Computex 2014 we met the folks behind the Xigmatek Nebula, and we've now verified that they are not Martians, nor do they work in a hut.
In all seriousness though, while we were visiting Xigmatek's booth we spotted the very pretty Nebula enclosure in several new colors. Originally, it was only available in black anodized aluminum with orange accents, but at the show it was displayed in silver, yellow, blue, red, pink, purple, and white. The white version was not made of aluminum though, but rather out of glossy plastic.
Inside the Nebula there is room for mid-range Mini-ITX systems. Buyers can mount a Mini-ITX board, ATX PSU, graphics cards up to 200 mm long, along with two 3.5" or 2.5" drives. Pre-installed users will find a 1200 RPM 120 mm fan. While this room won't accommodate the most high-end systems, it will let you build quite a nice HTPC, for example.
The aluminum versions are likely to come to the market over the next few months, although the company wasn't sure about the white variant yet. Pricing for the aluminum versions will be in line with the current Nebula.
