Default EVGA Shows Off Their New Water Cooled mITX Chassis

EVGA is entering the case market in a “small” way by introducing a unique mITX chassis with integrated water cooling, among other features.

With a strong selection of ITX motherboards, it was only a matter of time until EVGA started designing a case to house their miniature creations. Details are still coming in but it looks like they’ve designed a compact chassis which incorporates a front mounted, slot loaded DVD / Blu-Ray drive and diminutive exterior dimensions. The real difference between this and other solutions is an embedded water cooling setup that features a side-mounted fill port for the included reservoir. Supposedly a less expensive air cooled option will also be available.

I would love that case!! The CM Elite 120 advanced I have is a great chassis, unfortunatly it needs a few design overall for a few things I think.

the styling works for me, but I'm not so sure the need for water cooling in something so small.

Hence why they have an air cooled version.

I would love to see one up close to decide if its right for me or not.
Still, the one think I have always loved about EVGA is there sometimes eccentric and unique designs. This is no different, well done,

I really REALLY want to see a review of this case.

I was tempted to go with the Ghost, because of its small stature and watercooling capability. This case takes it one step further.

I'd even be willing to sell my brand new MSI z77 mobo for a mATX board, and buy this case if the reviews are good.

Wonder if that can be changed for a Delta DPS or something. I kinda worry too when they integrate PSU's in a case. Usually is the point where they skimp, and its the last thing we would want to skimp on.
