Compact Case for Multimedia and Gaming
Whether it is a compact multimedia station or demanding gaming PC: The V1000 Window from Sharkoon offers multiple solutions in a compact size. With a size of only 45 x 19.5 x 40.2 cm, the micro-ATX case is small enough to fit underneath low-rise desks. However, it still offers plenty of space for convenient extras typically only accommodated in ATX cases. This includes a tunnel on the case bottom, which allows discreet installation of the power supply and cabling, as well as separate dissipation of warm air. Plus, only items wishing to be seen are viewable through the large side window. The generous space inside the V1000 Window offers a wide range of possibilities for installing all the necessary components and even a radiator in the front panel.
Optimum Fan Solutions for Perfect Airflow
In order to provide even the most demanding components with sufficient fresh air, the front panel of V1000 Window consists of a full mesh grill, supporting front fan installation options. Air is drawn into the case by two pre-installed 120 mm fans with blue LED illumination and through a removable easy-to-clean dust filter. Alternatively, two 140 mm fans can be installed in place of the pre-installed 120 mm fans. For those wanting it even cooler, a 240 mm radiator can be easily installed or even a 280 mm radiator after removing the drive bay. Radiator height, including fan, can be up to a maximum of 5.9 cm. Another pre-installed 120 mm LED fan with blue LED illumination on the rear panel ensures the dissipation of warm air. For those preferring a different fan configuration, there is plenty of room on the top panel: Here, two 140 mm or three 120 mm fans can be attached using the oval hole cutouts. A pre-installed dust filter, which is secured with magnets, protects the fans from contamination and is easily removable. The opaque tunnel on the case bottom receives fresh air through the front pre-installed fans and an opening on the bottom panel, which is covered by a pre-installed dust filter in order to keep the case interior clean. The warm air from the tunnel completely dissipates separately and does not reach the inside of the case. This separate air circulation relieves the power supply fan and also reduces operating noise.
Inside the tunnel, power supplies with a maximum length of up to 24 cm can be installed. It also includes a HDD cage, which offers room for two 3.5" or two 2.5" hard drives. As with the fan installation, practical oval hole cutouts are provided, which allow flexible repositioning of the HDD cage. For power supplies without a separate cable management system, additional space can be created for discrete cabling. Numerous cable pass-throughs inside the case ensure that the remaining cabling can cleanly disappear behind the mainboard tray, which also contains two mounting brackets for additional 2.5" HDD/SSDs. A CPU cooler cutout is also provided for easy installation of a CPU cooler, which can have a maximum height of 15 cm. Maximum length of usable graphics cards is 40 cm, which can only be found in cases with ATX form factor.
Multiple Possibilities on the Front Panel
Optical drives also find a home within the V1000 Window: There is a 5.25" drive bay in the front or, optionally; one external 3.5" drive can also install using the provided 5.25" to 3.5" bay cover. If even more space is needed, for example the installation of a 280 mm radiator, the HDD mounting bracket can be easily removed. On the front panel, above the 5.25" drive bay, the microphone and headset audio ports plus two USB 3.0 ports for important peripheral devices are positioned together with the reset and power buttons. The front panel is also cableless designed and easily removed for the convenient installation of components or cleaning of the pre-installed dust filter.
