The U1 Plus is the predecessor to the popular U1 case, making it the perfect base for home PC systems. The main feature of this case is the timeless design line with the elegantly rounded corners and a very appealing exterior. Another special feature of the case are the transparent window, which is an optical highlight for all hardware enthusiasts who enjoy the view of inside their PC.

The I/O panel with 2x USB 3.0 and the HD audio connectors can be found on the right side of the case (as seen from the front). The U1 Plus is made of sturdy 4mm thick anodised aluminium with the right side panel sporting a 5mm strong tempered glass.
This high-quality and well-manufactures ITX case supports motherboards up to a maximum size of 170 x 170 mm (Mini-ITX).

In order to guarantee a particularly smooth-running and at the same time very compact system, Jonsbo decided to leave out mounting options for 3.5 inch HDD. In total, two 2.5 inch SSDs can be installed behind the front of the U1 Plus. Two expansion slots for the installation of a graphics card or sound card is available if required.
The case is aimed at users who are looking for a very small and stylish PC for typical living room applications. Thanks to the intelligent design of the case, you can install CPU-coolers with a maximum height of up to 133 mm and VGA cards of up to 195 mm in length. It’s perfectly suited to house a small Mini-ITX system with a compact VGA card.
The ventilation system of U1 Plus is designed for lowest possible noise levels. Users can install one 80 mm fan at the rear side of the case to exhaust heat from inside the case.
