Japanese company Abee may not be the best known of PC makers, but it definitely hasn't been keeping a low profile recently, its latest announcement dealing with, among other things, a model called AS Enclosure DX3.
AS Enclosure DX3 is not the most visually-embellished of PC enclosures, nor the largest or most sophisticated.
Nevertheless, at the end of the day, it can still say that it will keep everything in it running optimally, without having to get the hardware all cramped together.
The whole compactness aspect was already covered by the Acubic M50 HTPC unit after all (read about it here).
The newcomer measures 411 x 219 x 333 mm (16.18 x 8.62 x 13.11 inches) and is a steel-wrought chassis with either black or silver-colored aluminum panels.
The weight of 6.1 kilograms isn't the smallest in the world, but it isn't the highest either and, either way, this isn't something people will end up moving much anyway.
A pair of 5.25-inch bays are present, along with tow 3.5-inch bays and one 2.5-inch bay, the latter mostly intended for solid state drives.
Other specifications include a front-placed pair of USB 3.0 ports and all the cooling anyone except the more enthusiastic and overclocking-concerned of owners, could want.
For people who want more specifics, there are four fans on the inside of the Abee AS Enclosure DX3.
One of them is at the back, one of them is on top and the other two are on the side, side by side in fact.
All of them have a diameter o 120mm and a rotary speed of 1,000 RPM (rotations per minute).
The two spinners on the side are actually placed at the level where the video card usually ends up sitting, so there is a bonus to video board stability as well.
European stores should start listing the Abee AS Enclosure DX3 soon, if they haven't already, for the price of 289.90 Euro, which is about the same as $401.7, based on exchange rates.
