ASUS heat-efficient case

ASUS recently introduced the VENTO TA-M1 chassis designed with thermal efficiency and ease of use in mind. The PC case can accommodate a front-mounted fan, another one on the rear and two more on the sides, all up to 4.7 inches (120mm) in diameter. Additionally, the side-mounted fans attach to a movable plate, which can then be slid to adjust their output where it is necessary, with an emphasis on the CPU and graphics cards. The front, top and side panels are made with an all-mesh design for maximum ventilation while venting holes in the HDD rack free up more space for air to move around in.

The case can accommodate a larger high-end PCI-E VGA up to 15 inches (380mm) in size or an SLI/Crossfire card up to 11 inches (280mm). Adding flexibility is the inclusion of a 5.25-inch rack that can be converted into a 3.5-inch version in order to hold card readers and floppy disc drives. Otherwise, the case has space for four external 5.25-inch optical drive bays and four 3.5-inch floppy disk drive bays, all attaching via a screwless design. The front panel sports two USB 2.0 ports along with a pair of audio outputs. There are also seven PCI card expansion slots.

ASUS has not announced a price or release date for the VENTO TA-M1.
