Parvum Systems has added three new cases to its line up for 2016, including its first ATX case - the M1.0.
The company has traditionally catered only for smaller micro-ATX and mini-ITX form factors with cases such as the popular S2.0 and X1.0 (see our review here
). In fact, most of the line up has received some upgrades since we last looked at it, with the X1.0 now becoming the X2.0, and S2.0 now the S2.5.
However, it's the R1.0, M1.0 and L1.0 that are the star attractions for 2016. The R1.0 is a new style of micro-ATX case that Parvum claims is its ultimate micro-ATX offering, featuring triple layered acrylic and space for two 360mm radiators in the base chamber - a much more potent arrangement than the company's previous micro-ATX case.
The M1.0 is likely to appeal to anyone that isn't keen on downsizing to one of the smaller motherboard form factors - it's the company's first retail ATX case. Sporting a familiar design to the rest of its cases, the M1.0 is 452mm tall and supports 360mm radiators in the front and 240mm radiators in the roof, each with 65mm of clearance along with two 2.5in and two 3.5in mounts for storage. Parvum Systems has also placed the PSU and storage mounts in a chamber behind the motherboard to keep the case clutter-free and so only your core hardware is on show through the large windowed side panel.
Finally, the L1.0 is the company's largest case to date, standing at 600mm tall and 570mm deep. Whether you're air or water-cooling, this case has some serious dimensions. Up to 200mm air coolers are supported, while there are eight PCI-E expansion slots and GPU length limit of 45cm. The front of the case supports a 480mm radiator with 92mm of clearance - enough for a full height model plus single row of fans. The roof supports a 360mm radiator with 85mm clearance and the bottom chamber offers a home to two 360mm radiators, each of which has a massive 135mm clearance.

At Parvum Systems we are continuously refining and evolving our designs to provide truly innovative cases for the hardware enthusiast. Over the past two years we have concentrated exclusively on small form factor cases which dominated modding forums and social media, proving our flexibility and ability to adapt quickly with countless custom projects. During that time we have received many requests to expand our range and so for 2016 we have made three entirely new cases available from our website, the R1.0 (mATX), M1.0 (ATX) and L1.0 (E-ATX).
To unify the aesthetics of our products we have also updated two of our previous designs to create the ultra-compact X2.0 (ITX) and S2.5 (mATX). Every Parvum case is made from high-quality European 5mm acrylic in a variety of colours and precisely machined in the United Kingdom.
