Sharkoon tries its hand at an open-frame case with the new ELITE SHARK CA700. While a lot of Sharkoon gear focuses on the budget market, this is definitely not the case with the ELITE series. This new case has a MSRP of 399EUR.
Sharkoon Technologies is an international supplier of high-performance, quality PC components and peripherals. With the CA700 from the ELITE SHARK series, Sharkoon now presents its first open-frame PC case. Apart from the futuristic design, it should also impress with its cleverly designed interior. This provides room for up to eight fans and allows the simultaneous operation of two 360-millimeter radiators. In addition, the case offers extensive modification options: It can, for example, be tilted and locked in up to four positions via its base.

High-Quality Open-Frame Design
Five pre-installed, fully addressable PWM fans, with a diameter of 120 millimeters, and a case design which is open on all sides should all ensure the ideal cooling, even with power-hungry hardware. However, if anyone wants the case to be both water-cooled and even more eye-catching, then the spacious interior offers a particularly creative solution: For future-proof heat dissipation, a 360-millimeter radiator can be installed in the top of the case, and, at the same time, another 360-millimeter radiator can be operated next to the mainboard tray.

Extravagant - Inside and Outside
So that the presentation of the built-in hardware can be just as extravagant as the PC case itself, the CA700 comes with two mounting frames to vertically install a graphics card: one mounting frame for cards that require two slots and another for cards that require three slots. The manufacturer has also included the necessary riser cable in the case's package contents. The large side panel made of tempered glass allows the graphics card as well as the built-in fans or other illuminated elements to come into their own.

Practical and Convenient Features
In addition to its most conspicuous highlights, the ELITE SHARK CA700 offers many other smaller features which provide ease and convenience for creative hardware installation. Thus, for proper cable management, the case has several cable pass-throughs, and hook-and-loop cable ties are also supplied. And for additional flexibility, the water-cooling pump or the reservoir can be attached in one of two positions. For safe and easy handling, the tempered glass side panel is supported with a mounting bracket, and the front and top of the case have practical panels that can be easily opened and locked into position when necessary. According to personal taste, the body of the CA700 can be tilted and locked at four different angles via its base.

Lots of Space for Large Components
With dimensions of 63.2 x 25.0 x 67.0 centimeters, the ELITE SHARK CA700 is also the largest Sharkoon PC case to date and should thus offer a correspondingly large amount of space for the biggest components. For example, the maximum length of the graphics card is 47.5 centimeters, the maximum length of the power supply is 19.5 centimeters and the maximum height of the CPU cooler is 16.5 centimeters. In addition, there is room for six 2.5-inch SSDs and two 3.5-inch HDDs.
