Sharkoon has extended its PC cases with the REX Water Cooling Edition Midi Tower dedicated for micro-ATX motherboards. The arrangement of the case offers space the installation of a 120 mm or 240 mm water cooling radiator on the top, and if water-cooling is not for you, it can still be used with an air cooling ventilator, providing its height does not exceed 165 mm.
The case does not look very different from the REX series from outside, but make no mistake, the inside is completely rearranged so as to fit only micro-ATX motherboards. Due to this, it gains a lot of space for cooling systems to be mounted.
You can also view inside the case with the help of a tinted acrylic window on the side, which provides insight into the housing interior and the installed components. Don’t worry about having cables all over the place when you want to show off all your LEDs and fancy equipment you have inside, because a cable management system is in place to help you with just that.
Looking at the Rex Water Cooling Edition features, we can see it has five slots for expansion cards and up to two dual-slot graphics cards with a maximum length of up to 40 cm can be installed. Also, the front panel is made completely out of mesh for perfect air circulation, having behind the panel two 120 mm Low Noise blue LED fans.An additional 120 mm LED fan is pre-installed on the back of the case to ensure optimum air circulation.
Optical drives can be installed without screws in the two available 5.25″ drive bays, also up to three 3.5″ hard drives or 2.5″ hard drives/SSDs can be mounted in the HDD rack system. There also is a panel containing a mounting frame for card readers is also included. The front panel has six USB ports, two USB ports on the top and four USB 2.0 ports in the front, along with headsets and speakers which can be connected via the two audio connections.
The case is retailing at around $68 / €50 / £42 and can be found in selected retail stores.
