New Interior Concept
With the compact S1000 Window, a micro-ATX case incorporates a tunnel for the very first time. As a result, the power supply and hard drives can install discreetly to the case bottom. The acrylic side window displays a clear and exposed view of everything else going on inside the S1000 Window. For example, the cable management system, which allows for orderly cabling of all components via its numerous openings and recesses, while simultaneously ensuring optimal airflow inside the case. The tunnel offers enough space for a power supply with a maximum length of 24 cm. The mobile HDD cage allows this installation space to be expanded: The cage can be moved, via thumbscrews, up to four centimeters in the direction of the front panel - for example, for extra-long power supplies or if more space for cabling is required. Maximum length of graphics cards is up to 40 cm. Maximum height of CPU coolers is up to 15 cm.
Two 120 mm fans come pre-installed: One fan is located behind the side air intakes of the front panel and provides fresh air supply. The other fan is attached to the rear panel and illuminates with blue LEDs, providing atmospheric lighting to the case interior. The dust filter protects the case from contamination, which, thanks to its magnetic fasteners, is removable and easy to clean. Also, behind the front panel and on top of the air inlet for the power supply on the case bottom, are two easily accessible and removable dust filters.
Highly Customizable Installation Possibilities
3.5" hard drives install tool-free inside the tunnel on the case bottom thanks to a convenient rail system. The vents incorporated into the side of the tunnel fully support air circulation. Two SSDs can mount to the back of the mainboard tray. A drive bay for 5.25" drives is readily available, allowing installation of two additional SSDs. Even with its compact design, the S1000 Window still offers the possibility to install a water cooling system: 240 mm radiators can install directly to the front. To facilitate the installation of 280 mm radiators, the 5.25" drive bay is modular and, if necessary, can be easily removed. The total height of the radiator, including fan, is up to a maximum of 5.9 cm.
Audio connectors for the microphone and headphone as well as two USB 3.0 ports, for easy connection of the most important peripherals, are located on the top of the front panel. The USB 3.0 ports connect directly to the mainboard via a 19-pin mainboard connector.
Quick Access to all Components
Both side panels are equipped with thumbscrews and are removed tool-free. The interfaces, status LED as well as the power and reset buttons are incorporated into the body of the case thanks to its cableless front panel design. Therefore, the front panel can be easily removed at any time. This simplifies the installation of front hard drives and the cleaning of dust filters, which are all located behind the front panel.
