CES 2019: Riotoro’s Morpheus Convertible Case, Rising & Shrinking
One of many hallmarks of the fashionable PC present is that any person is exhibiting off a chassis someplace that both drives you loopy, appears to be like loopy otherwise you go to, eh, what? & # 39; (Ed: it takes us on a regular basis). These days, the in-win case that has stood up and introduced itself is final 12 months's iBuyPower Snowblind LCD-as-a-case panel and a 40 kg aluminum case, one other in-win design. This time it's Riotoro's flip.
Morpheus is all about highly effective transformation. If the standard Micro ATX chassis will not be massive sufficient, customers can actually pull the decrease half of the chassis away from the highest of the chassis, add a help connector, and design in E-ATX mode. These modes are known as mid-tower and mini-tower. When altering from one to a different, the peak modifications from 15.1 inches to 17.5 inches.
To simplify meeting, Riotoro selected a dual-chamber design, with motherboard / CPU / GPUs in a single half and PSU / storage within the different. This helps with cable administration and cooling when every little thing is there. The motherboard makes use of a reverse placement, which implies the GPUs are on the prime. Subsequently this must be taken under consideration. Along with supporting bigger motherboards in bigger mode, the case can accommodate as much as four GPUs and some SSDs with two extra 2.5-inch drive bays.
The case comes with two RGB followers mounted within the entrance and one within the again. The entrance followers can be utilized in each modes. In mid-tower mode, a complete of six 120/140 mm followers can be utilized, whereas the mini-tower additionally provides six, however the diminished Z-height doesn’t permit liquid cooling on prime of the case.
The case appears to be like filled with holes, however there are mud filters on the entrance, an acrylic sheet on the highest, and magnetic mud filters elsewhere. The entrance panel has two USB-C ports, two Sort A USB three.zero ports, and your entire chassis is a tool-free design.
The one reply I actually have is, "Um, what?" It's a pleasant idea and all, however most customers have no idea the scale of their construct earlier than they purchase the chassis. Now I can think about that the chassis is maintained by a number of builds and customers could change between a smaller system and a bigger system. However the place precisely do I maintain the additional components in small mode? I can think about dropping her or placing her in a field that I cannot keep in mind in a number of years.
Possibly I cannot get it. You?
