his week it's all about Computex 2015 - and all our fans know that Computex means new Nanoxia products: We revealed our first PC-case, the Deep Silence 1, during Computex 2012. The Deep Silence 4, Deep Silence 5 and Deep Silence 6 have been introduced during Computex 2013. To keep in this tradition, on this opening day of Computex 2015, we want to introduce a complete new range of PC-Cases: The Nanoxia CoolForce Series!

The CoolForce Series will offer an outstanding price-performance ratio. Five different models will be made available, offering a variety of features at very attractive prices. As with the Deep Silence Series, we made sure that the different models will be easily recognizable as belonging to the same family.

 

The clean cut front panel with the green-lit Nanoxia lettering and the silver edges can be found in each of the models. Each CF-case will come with two fans, one in the front, the other one in the back. Each new case will have a multi-stage fan control. 2 x USB 3.0, 1 x USB 2.0 and HD Audio ports are available. The top mounted fan holes are hidden under separate, removable covers. And of course, each CoolForce case will be "watercooling ready" with multi-radiator support.
