Case maker Jonsbo has announced a pair of new towers, the QT03A and VR2, alongside a range of LED fans dubbed FR-101.

The Jonsbo QT03A is, the company has explained, based on its earlier QT01 'Antiphon' design, but will sit alongside its predecessor as a second model rather than replace it as an upgrade. The case is manufactured from anodised aluminium with a 5mm tempered glass side panel and optional glass front panel for what Jonsbo claims is 'an almost unimpeded view into the interior.' The designs has also been tweaked for noise reduction, as per its predecessor and the whole point of the 'QT' line branding, with sound-absorbing materials to the front and cover and decoupled mounts for hard drives and the power supply. An integrated fan controller, allowing fans to be set to 7V, 12V, or switched off altogether, also aids with reducing the noise from the three bundled 120mm fans - two at the front, one at the rear.

According to Jonsbo, the QT03A supports 360mm radiators, two 3.5in drives and three 2.5in drives simultaneously, tower heatsinks up to 172mm in height, and graphics cards up to 400mm in length with bundled mounting brackets to tidy up power cables on longer graphics card models and keep the interior neat and tidy.

The VR2, meanwhile, is a scaled-up version of Jonsbo's earlier VR1. Using the same vertical graphics card mounting system as its predecessor, the VR2 supports micro-ATX or mini-ITX motherboards, tower heatsinks up to 190mm in height, and graphics cards up to 300mm in length. As with the QT03A the case is built from anodised aluminium and 5mm tempered glass, all around a core steel chassis. Three 120mm fans are bundled, with support for 140mm fans and up to a 280mm radiator at the bottom. Four 2.5in and one 3.5in drives are supported.

Finally, the FR-101 fan family launches with two 120mm models with pulse-width modulation (PWM) speed control and a further four with three-pin Molex connectors. In all cases, the fans are based around hydraulic bearings and include 18 high-power LEDs for a spiral-style lighting effect. The two main types can be distinguished by their blades: the Molex models have clear blades, while the PWM models have a silver finish. The PWM models are available in red and white, while the non-PWM versions in blue, green, red and white.

Jonsbo has indicated that all its latest products are available now, and while UK pricing has yet to be confirmed the company has set European retail prices at €119.99 for the QT03A, €124.99 for the VR2, €13.99 for the FR-101 Molex models, and €16.99 for the FR-101 PWM models (around £101, £106, £12, and £14 respectively, including taxes.) More information is available on the company's official product pages.
