All righty then, first off we'll want to know just what we're getting ourselves into here. After all, the if a design can't fulfill our immediate storage needs, then there is no sense going any further, is there? But fear not, the Jupiter case, though seemingly small in stature, has ample storage to handle most any needs where peripherals are concerned. Here is what we've got for you:


Material: 1.0 mm anodized Aluminum Alloy resisting dust & fingerprint.


Coating: Hardness scale 3, protecting from scratch


Front Jacks: USB 2.0, Microphone, Earphone, IEEE1394


Fans: One front 80mm intake fan, one rear CPU blower with 80mm fan, one 60 mm rear exhaust fan


Drive Bays: 4 x 5.25" (external), 2 x 3.5" (external), & 4 x 3.5" (internal)


Expansion Slots: 7 slots with screwdriver-free thumbscrews


Motherboard: ATX or Micro ATX


Dimension: 7.9" (W) x 16.2" (H) x 19.3" (D)




Now that we have a rough idea what the case is like and what it can hold, what else can we expect from this little toy?


LCD/Light Module: Always-on (even system off) power from VSB output. LCD displays time, temperature, and HDD/System-on/off status.


Multi-Color Light: Auto mode - automatically change colors every 2 seconds; Manual mode - manually choose and lock the colors.


Temperature Sensor: 23" long wire sensor, placed anywhere in the enclosure.


Chassis: All folded edges to strengthen the structure and keep from cutting fingers.


Bezel: Integrate Aluminum Stripe/film, Plexiglas, painted/plated plastic, and LCD/Light Module with style.


Packing: Polyethylene (PE) foams, better protection from damage in shipping.
