Anidees introduces the AI-4B, a new steel case with a brushed aluminium front panel. At first sight, the pictures suggest this is a full tower case, but it's in fact a mini tower designed for Micro-ATX and Mini-ITX cases. It measures only 186mm x 429mm x 420mm and weighs 6.06kg.
Anidees is known from very unusual projects designed for people who appreciate the elegance and functionality. Manufacturer have announced their latest chassis AI-4 dedicated for Mini-ITX and Micro-ATX motherboards. Despite this, case is compatible multiple equipment and can give you a lot more than you expect at first sight. If some of you remember previous model AI-6, you can see similar design of AI-4 case which is also finished with brushed aluminum on the top and front panels. Front door can be hinged right or left to the users preference.
The top I/O panel includes high speed USB 3.0 (2x), USB 2.0 (2x) and audio innput/output for more comfortable connectivity. Like any great case, cable management areas are present including cable chips to keep cables tidy. A three speed fan controller situated alongside the I/O input gives dynamic cooling and sound potentials. Three Nano tech fans, 2x 120mm in the front and 1x 120mm is already included with the system which have an ultra long lifetime. The case has space 4x 3.5" or 2.5" devices, up to 340mm graphics cards and 168mm CPU coolers, so this will ensure you can get great cooling and a powerful graphics card inside the system. Anti-vibration rubber for the fans, HDD and removable dust filter in the front - this all can also be found on the AI-4.
