Case newcomers in giant and dwarf format

(PresseBox) ( Ahrensburg, )
Aplus extends its product range with two new PC cases, which are totally different from one another. While the CS-802B - a gamer/server case - offers maximum space for many extensions through its extreme length (584mm), on the other hand, the mini-ITX case CS-160 scores with a small size (only 220x68x245mm) and variable positioning options. Both cases are made of solid, black coated steel, and partly supplemented by plastic parts in the front. Multiple ventilation openings provide a good air flow.

Optically, the first eyecatcher of CS-802B is the attractive, lockable front panel with blue illumination in a sinuous mix of matt black plastic and mesh. Behind this door eSATA, 2x USB, audio in/out and Firewire ports are hidden, and bays for maximal 9x 5.25" or 6x 5.25" + 4x 3.5" drives or HDDs. All bays can be mounted screwless with a clip system and enable a variety of configuration options. The hard drives are mounted into a removable cage with an antivibration protection, additional cages are available separately.

Due to the generous interior the CS-802B has enough space for an outstanding cooling system. A 12cm fan is already integrated on the back side. Inside the case a space is available for a 7x 120-140mm fans or optional water cooling. Four holes are located in the rear for the cooling hoses. The power supply can be mounted on the bottom of the case, with the fan facing upwards or downwards; and a soft rubber frame is included for noise reduction. In the rear are 7 slots for PCI cards that can be assembled without screws as well.

The smart mini-ITX case CS-160 can be positioned upright or laying horizontal with adjustable clever feet. In the front panel with A+ logo a silvery ON/OFF switch, a HDD activity indicator, a slim ODD bay, audio in/out and two USB ports are located. The large interior includes a 5cm rear fan and a variety of connection cables; it provides space for a 2.5" HDD. The content of delivery also encloses a 72W power supply.

Both cases are marketed exclusively by MaxPoint Handelsgesellschaft mbH. CS-802B is available in specialised shops for a recommended retail price of 89 € (incl. VAT) starting from now, CS-160 costs 49 €.
