Jonsbo V8, Small Case With Premium Looks

Jonsbo might not be the most well-known case manufacturer out there, but that hasn't stopped it from making some pretty nifty enclosures. We last used one to build our RGBaby, and were pleasantly surprised with it in the process. Now, the company released its V8, setting some high expectations.

Of course, when I think V8, what comes to mind is a big, roaring American engine, but the Jonsbo V8 is rather cute instead. It measures in at 260 mm tall, 250 mm wide, and 390 mm deep, weighing just 5.8 kg. Not very thunderous, is it?

But, that doesn't mean you can't pack it full of powerful gear. It's got room for a small Mini-ITX board alongside GPUs up to 330 mm long, so although small in footprint, you'll be able to pack it full of quite a bit of punch.

The chassis features a unique design where the components are all installed into a  tray that slides into the enclosure from behind, which makes for a very clean exterior look. Indeed, the entire exterior is made from one big piece of brushed aluminum, and it does look very premium.

Air is pulled into the case by a huge 200 mm fan at the front intake, which undoubtedly provides all the airflow you should need. Should you want more though, the rear also supports a 120 mm spinner.

No word on pricing yet, but with its premium materials, you can expect it to be priced accordingly.

    Wow, you can cram a 3 fan version in that and in my old ATX case I can barely put in a 2 fan card. Ill build a small computer in that case and smuggle it into my school

    I wonder if the front 200mm fan is replaceable, just in case it's too loud. Hopefully it's a standard hole placement & non-interfering case design, so you could replace with a Noctua NF-A20, if needed.

    Just going off of the pictures, it looks like it should fit the NF-A20's "inner" corner mounting pattern - 154mm x 154mm.

    Very nice looking case design.

    Well at least it's got an exhaust fan, as it looks like that huge intake fan is pretty much smothered by the solid piece of metal on the front. Why not perforate that as well? The other sides are.

    Exactly my feeling.
    front should be a mesh / air filter. when a fan this bigs starves for air, it makes more noise and moves less air

    This case also looks like a knock-off of the Thorzone Mjolnir mini-ITX case.
