Sharkoon reveals four new low-budget Micro-ATX towers

Posted on Thursday, November 07 2013 @ 13:43:50 CET by


Sharkoon reveals four new mini towers for Micro-ATX motherboards; the MA-A1000, MA-I1000, MA-M1000 and MA-W1000. Priced at 29.99EUR these cases aim at the low-end market, they feature a compact design, a front I/O with USB 3.0, and a pre-installed case fan.
Sharkoon expands its range of low-priced PC cases and introduces four new mini towers with the MA-A1000, MA-I1000, MA-M1000 and MA-W1000 for µATX mainboards. The cases are nearly identical and differ mainly in just the optics.

True to the motto "Save on space - not on possibilities!" the cases in the series provide, despite their compact size of 415 x 185 x 360 millimeters, space for up to eight hard drives/SSDs, which can be decoupled installed. In addition, graphics cards up to 340 millimeters in length as well as CPU coolers with a maximum height of 165 millimeters can be installed. The cases contain two 5.25" drive bays and a 3.5" drive bay. Pre-installed is also a Sharkoon BayExtension. Through this special installation frame up to four additional Solid State Disks can be attached. Two pre-installed fans, a 140 mm fan in the front and a 120 mm in the rear of the case ensure continuous air flow. Removable dust filters are located on the front and lower ventilation openings. In the versions without a window, an optional fan on the side panel can be installed.

On all the cases the front I/O offers two USB 3.0, two USB 2.0 and two audio ports. The two USB 3.0 ports are connected via a 19-pin mainboard connector and also provide an alternative USB 2.0 connector, ensuring backward compatibility with older mainboards. The front panel design of the series is completely cable-free. The panels can be removed at any time, without having to detach any cables. This simplifies the installation of external 5.25" or 3.5" drives. Optical drives are mounted with quick-release fasteners, or optionally screwed in.

The biggest difference between the four mini towers is their various designs. The MA-A1000 with its closed front comes in pure Alu-optic. The MA-I1000 is equipped with vents, behind which a blue 140 mm LED fan is installed. For lovers of classic mesh design, the MA-M1000 with its blue LED fan is recommended. Also with a mesh front and blue illumination is the MA-W1000, which has an Alu-optic finish in the front and fitted with an acrylic side panel.

End customers will find the Sharkoon MA-A1000, MA-I1000, MA-M1000 and MA-W1000 cases available for the suggested retail price starting at 29.99 euros from authorized retailers.
