Default Jonsbo's 2nd battle; The over-sized mitx Throne

I know I'm looking more and more like A Jonsbo rep but nobody's paying attention and they have mine in full.

ausgepackt & angefasst: Cooltek W1 - YouTube

Test: hard-edged mini-ITX case Cooltek W1

Another Jonsbo case -perhaps more focused in targeting the user it wants than the confusing UMX2- is the W1. This mitx hasn't been released state side by Rosewill, but is being sold in Germany under the Cooltek Brand. Not sure what the price is but there is no way it'll be less than $180~200.

This thick aluminum case can fit anything you throw at it. Large coolers, a maximum of 4 140mm fans with fan control and watercooling support, the cooling is extreme.

I'm sure Prodigy fans with a bigger budget will drool at this high-end piece. I'm not a fan though. My favourite mitx still is the Lian Li PC28Q due to the smaller footprint, $100 price and ability to house long video cards and ATX power supplies. I'd love to see Jonsbo take it to the PC28Q and make something like it.

I'm looking at a third Jonsbo case that caught my attention and might post it later, The QT01, an accoustically dampened mid-tower.

That actually looks pretty damn cool. I could see a nice Nas system in there.

It does look pretty good, but IMO is too tall for what I'm looking for in an mITX case. Remove the space allotted to the slot loading ODD, and drop the height of the rear fan down to 92mm and then come back to talk to me. :)
