Today, Phobya unveiled its new top-of-the-line Black Owl PC case that was designed with the extreme water cooling enthusiast in mind. The Black Owl is actually the end-result of a design contest held earlier this year on the popular modding website Bit-Tech.

The case is constructed completely out of aluminum and features support for up to three radiators. Weighing in at less than 7kg, the Phobia is spacious enough to feature today's latest hardware, including eATX motherboards and extra long graphic cards.

The Phobya Black Owl features a concave front panel that features enough room to mount three 5.25-inch and three 3.5-inch drives. Additionally, space is available for up to four 2.5-inch drives. The case is definitely built to be modder friendly as it does not feature pre-installed power and reset buttons, allowing the customer to choose something like Phobya's vandalism-proof push buttons.

As I mentioned at the top of this post, the Black Owl is built for extreme water cooling setups. Up top is enough space for a 480mm radiator, including normal thickness fans, while in the bottom, a bracket is present that can fit a triple 120mm or 140mm radiator with fans. On the back is additional space for a single 140mm radiator or fan. Additionally, grommets and holes have been provided throughout the case for easy tubing routing and multiple placement spots for watercooling pumps.

The Phobya Black Owl ships without any fans installed as the company feels that custom watercooling builders are highly individual. Users can optimize their set up towards each individual's needs. The Black Owl will be available for purchase in the coming weeks at Aquatuning for 470 Euros.
