There has always been a lot of innovation in the mini-ITX case market, as case makers are constantly trying to come up with ways to ensure high-end hardware compatibility in a small package, while retaining ease-of-use for system builders. Jonsbo has a new addition to its mini-ITX line-up this year, the V11, which can be set up for a vertical or horizontal mini-PC.
Measuring in at 170 x 353 x 217 mm (W x D x H), the Jonsbo V11 is a 13-litre case that will be available in black and silver. The external panels are made of 2.5mm aluminium alloy, and the internal structure uses 1mm steel. This results in a total weight of 3.6 kilograms, which should come in handy if you like to travel with your PC.
The case features 2x 2.5-inch drive bays, 3x expansion slots and supports ITX motherboards, SFX PSUs up to 110mm long, CPU coolers up to 70mm tall and GPUs up to 300mm long – or 330mm if you remove the front fan. As a very compact case with limited space, users will have to be careful and well researched when choosing components. The from I/O has a USB-C port, a USB-A 3.0 port and an HD-audio 3.5mm jack.
The front panel comes with a 140mm fan mounted, but you can install a 140mm water cooling radiator in that same spot. Inside the case, there's a dedicated section for the GPU, while the rest will be for the PSU, motherboard, storage devices and remaining components. The side panels are vented so the GPU, PSU and CPU can pull in air for cooling.
