CeBIT 2017 has kicked off this week and we have Leo Waldock there reporting straight from the show floor. Today, we got a chance to check out the Deepcool booth, where there were new liquid cooling cases and RGB fans on display.
The RGB fans in particular seem reminiscent of fans we have previously seen on display from Corsair. Deepcool’s MF120 and MF120 GT fans connect up to a controller that can manage up to three at once. You can then use the Deppcool GS control app to adjust the lighting, different patterns as well as the fan speed. Both fans are rated for between 500rpm and 2200rpm but given that the MF120 is frameless, it should push more air than the MF120 GT.
As for cases, Deepcool had several on display, the first of which is The Quadsteller. This is a revision of the previous Tristellar design but as the name suggests, it has four compartments instead of three. The motherboard mounts in diagonally, allowing the case to accommodate the E-ATX form factor. Deepcool told us that you should be able to install three graphics cards with an E-ATX board or four GPUs with a standard ATX one.
In each instance, PCIe risers are used to connect the hardware. Aside from that, this case also has room for nine hard drives or 12 SSDs. The Quadsteller should be available later this year with a price around the $300 mark.
The next case we got to take a look at is the Ark 90. As is the style at the moment, this case uses tempered glass, in addition to an integrated Captain 280EX AIO liquid cooler. This particular case will run you $400 when it eventually launches. Aside from that, we also got to see the Genome ROG, which is Deepcool’s collaboration with ASUS ROG. It’s essentially a Genome chassis with the ROG logo included.
Finally, the most interesting case we got to see was the Baronkase Liquid. This case offers some interesting configuration options. Those planning a Micro-ATX build will be able to place components exactly where you would expect to have them. However, if you install the power supply in the drive bay area and use a power cable pass-through, you could fit a larger ATX motherboard into this very small case.
KitGuru Says: We will be at CeBIT for a few days, so expect more coverage to follow.
