Just as graphics card prices begin to settle with a nice 25% discount on Amazon from the highs of an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti costing you $1600 and AMD's flagship Radeon RX Vega 64 making you burn $2100... Alphacool is here to save the day with a new 12 x GPU mining rig open air frame.
Alphacool's Mining Rig 12 open air frame case can take not just one motherboard, but two, and some mounting for serious watercooling setups. You can use 6 x 360mm radiators and mount them on the Alphacool Mining Rig 12, while two reservoirs can be placed with positioning for their respective pumps.
Alphacool takes mining rigs to the next level by making them water cooling friendly, with the company using different NexXxoS radiators, Eisbecher reservoirs, and various pumps.
Corsair hasn't had a super ridiculously high-end chassis since the Obsidian 900D which was released all the way back in 2013, before RGBs went mainstream, and now we're seeing a tease of the unannounced Obsidian 1000D chassis.

Corsair has the front, sides, and top panels all made using curved tempered glass with aluminum inserts that allows for discrete air inlets for a bunch of fan mounts inside.
