Deepcool has announced a new variant of its eye-catching Tristellar mini-ITX case, the Tristellar SW, featuring a windowed section to show off your graphics card.
First unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) earlier this year
, the Tristellar is certainly one of Deepcool's most intriguing designs. Eschewing the traditional box-like shape of a PC chassis, the Tristellar features three independent sections splayed out in a triangular array: one to hold a mini-ITX motherboard, one to house a PCI Express graphics card connected via extension cable, and a third to host a standard 180mm-long power supply unit and slot-loading optical drive.
While the original Tristellar was entirely enclosed, the new Tristellar SW is designed to showcase your hardware: the upper compartment includes toughened-glass panels on the sides and top to provide a full view of the graphics card. The remaining two modules remain closed from view in their 2mm SPCC.
Aside from the replacement panels, the specifications of the case remain unchanged: there's support for CPU coolers up to 85mm in height, graphics cards up to 320mm in length, an optional 120mm fan or liquid-cooling radiator in the motherboard cabin along with the bundled 90mm fan in the graphics card compartment, and support for 2 3.5" and 3 2.5" hard drives. The case measures 388mm in height, 435mm in width, and 395mm in depth, and weighs an impressive 16Kg.
