The centerpiece of the In Win booth at this year’s CES is the massive H-Tower enclosure, a limited edition chassis that transforms from an enclosure to an open platform automatically. The company had a version of this enclosure at Computex, but now a final 6th generation of the concept is set for e-tail availablility.
The transformation is a sight to behold (which in this final version now uses a medical grade arm for smooth operation), and has the practical benefit of providing easy access to your system components. In Win has provided a video to demonstrate the H-Tower, imbedded below:
Beyond the unique mechanical functionality, the H-Tower is about as premium an enclosure as you could imagine, beginning with a brushed aluminum exterior with lighting effects that can be controlled with a mobile app. There is also an integrated laser lighting system which “indicates the safe opening area on the floor around it” – an important point to consider once you see the enclosure in action.
Front I/O includes three USB 3.0 ports and a USB Type-C port
The interior supports motherboards up to E-ATX, graphics cards up to 340 mm, tall CPU coolers up to 200 mm, and there is room for a larger liquid cooling well as well with three 120 mm fan opening supporting up to a 360 x 35 mm radiator. Storage options are limited to a single 3.5-inch HDD with room for four 2.5-inch SSDs. Large power supplies of up to 230 mm are supported as well.
There are two versions of the H-Tower, with the titanium version shown at the booth as well as an official ASUS Republic of Gamers version that is black with red accents.
The enclosure will be available in February in North America, and Newegg already has a pre-order listing for a staggering $2399.
