Spire, The Netherlands-based supplier of enclosures, cooling solutions, and power supplies announced the availability of a new PC case aimed at gamers and overclockers. Dubbed the Epoxi rev. 2, the ATX full tower enclosure is constructed from .8mm SECC steel and aluminum front panels. Accommodating ATX motherboards, up to five 5.25” and six 3.5” tool-less drive bays, and six 120mm fans, Spire claims that the case is perfect for use with high wattage devices and water cooling components through the use of two rubber grommets providing exterior access. Thumb screw secured panels, anti-vibration mountings, front port eSATA, and a sleek design are all nice touches. Further, the case features rotating feet and a bottom mounted PSU design.
On the inside, the case features the same dark design as the exterior in addition to a CPU back plate cut-out and wire routing holes that provide access to the area between the motherboard tray and side panel to hide PSU and other cables. From the image above, it is apparent that this case has no shortage of available drive bays! Weighing in at 13.5kg, it wont be easily toted around to LAN parties; however, it will gladly house all your components at home and keep them nice and cool- perhaps even when bitcoin mining ;).
Spire lists the new case as having an MSRP of 139.95 USD (108.95 EURO) and is now available from their European distribution center in The Netherlands. More photos of the case are available here.
