EK Water Blocks Vulture ITX case has been revealed! Of course we know EKWB for their waterblocks and watercooling accessories so it is very exciting that they are moving into the case market. We have seen this from other cooling companies in the past.
The case will support Mini-ITX motherboards and has support for 360 mm radiators with push and pull configurations supported. The radiator mounting is on the front of the case. Also on the front of the case you will find power and reset buttons, audio connections, two USB 3.0 ports and a slot loaded slim optical drive bay.
The case is made out of 3 mm thich aluminum, which seems to be very high quality. This should make the case more expensive than your typical mini-ITX case. The one thing that really stands out about this case is the curved window, which is something we have not seen on a case before. This allows for great view of not only your motherboard, but graphics card as well, something that is missing in most modern cases.
Taking about the graphics card this case can fit a 12-inch dual-slot graphics card, although the size of the graphics card may depend on the radiator / fan setup you choose to install.
Your power supply will be located on the opposite side of the case from where your graphics card will be. The case will support full-sized ATX power supplies and even longer ones, which is great to see. Right below the power supply mounting is a hard drive cage that supports two 3.5-inch drives.
The motherboard tray itself is not removable, but it does have cable routing cutouts.
In front of the motherboard tray are two 2.5-inch SSD mounts. There are designed so you will be able to show off your SSDs through the side panel window.
Keep in mind that this is just a prototype case right now. It’s official dimensions are 17.25″x7.75″x18.5″ (LxWxH). Expect EKWB to make some changes and tweak to this case before it is made available for sale.
What do you guys think of this case?
