A new German company called Haxx is working on a passively-cooled ATX case. The Haxx Case 0.1 mid-tower case has a very bare look, it consists largely of 3mm thick aluminium with an anodised, scratch-resistant silver color.
The chassis measures 180mm x 420mm x 420mm, it only uses industry standard components and is completely designed and manufactured in Germany! Designed for fanless computing, this mid-tower features its own massive aluminium heatsink capable of handling the heat output of processors with a TDP of up to 95W.
Inside the case is room for a Mini-ITX/Micro-ATX/ATX motherboard, 7 expansion cards, two 5.25" drives and five 2.5/3.5" storage devices. You can mount extra long graphics cards in the case, but Haxx points out that if you use a lot of power-hungry components, you may need to limit the CPU's TDP to 80W to avoid high temperatures.
By default, the case obviously doesn't include fans but if you really want to you can equip it with some 120/140mm fans or even a watercooling radiator.
Shipments will start in September but the case will only be available as a DIY building kit - which you need to assemble yourself. You can pre-order it at Haxx's website for 333EUR. Optional features include handles (+10EUR), wheels and wall mounting.
