Last week, boutique PC maker CyberPowerPC launched its Trinity gaming desktop, which featured DeepCool’s GamerStorm TriStellar Chassis. The case maker is now launching a standalone version of the chassis that will be available for system builders shortly.
The TriStellar differs from other high-end gaming enclosures in that it is divided into three sections, each with room for a specific set of components. The mini-ITX chassis can hold video cards up to 320mm in length, and can accommodate coolers 120mm in height. Full-size PSUs with maximum dimensions of 150x160x86mm can also be slotted into the TriStellar Chassis. There is an LED power on/off button situated at the front fascia, flanked by two USB 3.0 ports and HD audio connectors.
The video cards and the 2.5-inch SSD slots (of which there are three) are housed in one section, and are connected to the motherboard located in another cubby through a PCI-E extension cable and SATA ports. The motherboard chamber has room to fit a CPU cooler 80mm in length, or a liquid cooler with a radiator of 120mm. The chassis has a spine along the “V” of the structure, allowing the passage of cables across different sections. The PSU section has slots for two 3.5-inch HDDs.
The idea behind the modular nature of the chassis is to allow for faster dissipation of heat, with the case coming with a 90mm fan by default. There’s no word on pricing as yet, but given the aesthetic value of the chassis and the category it is being aimed at, it will likely command a premium.
