Nanoxia at Coputex 2016
Among other Brands also Nanoxia has a nice booth by Computex, where they presented some of their new and upcoming products. One of main new products is the new CoolForce 1 case series. Which should be available end of August. The case was updated with USB 3.1 Type C front connector, in addition to the two USB 3.0 and HD Audio connectors. The front panel was also slightly re-designed to get even better access to dust filters. and front fans. Many feature like removable HDD-trays or separately available 2-bay or 3-bay HDD-cages can be installed at the bottom. The mounting rail is a bit offset from the front panel, in order to allow the installation of a 240 mm radiator. Alternately, either two 2.5 inch SSD or a 120/140 mm fan can be installed here. Under the top cover, a 360 mm radiator can be installed. The mounting holes are offset for the maximum compatibility to motherboards.
The CoolForce 1 will be fully soundproofed, with two noise insulated side panels. Hard disks and the PSU are decoupled and a fan control for up to three case fans is included, allowing the best compromise between maximum air flow and low noise. We will also offer tempered glass side panels as an accessory to the case, for users who want insight to their systems. The CoolForce 2 will shortly be updated in a similar fashion as the CoolForce 1. The USB 2.0 connector will be replaced by USB 3.1 Type C, and we will change the front design with the easily accessible and cleanable dust filter, implementing one of main proposals for improvement our customers suggested.

Another interesting new product is their Nanoxia Ncore Retro keyboard. As the Nanoxia is expanding their product portfolio with mechanical keyboards. The Nanoxia Ncore Retro keyboard looks like an antique typewriter, with detachable, interchangeable keys. The keyboard is made of aluminum. Each of the keys can be detached and switched at any time. On top of that the keyboard offers all the benefits of a mechanical keyboard. They will offer the Ncore Retro with different European keyboard layouts.
Last but not least the “Project S” inspired by their Nanoxia Project showed at last year’s Computex. It’s a high-end HTPC case with aluminum front and tempered glass top. As with the original Nanoxia Project, it’s a drawer design, allowing users to pull out the tray that holds PSU, motherboard, fans/radiators and HDD’s/SSD’s. The classic case features an I/O-panel with 2 x USB 3.0, 1 x USB 3.1 Type C, and HD Audio. A RGB Rigid LED is installed in the lower part of the front.
The drawer designs allows it to pull out the system, even when it’s running, making the installation of hardware, the swapping of hard disks or the (re-)filling of a water cooling system a breeze. Two 2.5″ or 3.5″ HDDs, as well as three 2.5″ SSDs, can be installed, with all the HDD mounting spaces being fully removable. A very generous cable management system allows a very clean installation. For fans of water cooling, they included holders for a 280 mm solution in the front, and a 360 mm radiator at the right side. Another 240 mm system can be installed on the left side, after the HDD-holder has been removed.
For users who prefer tower over HTPC cases, the Project S can be used standing up. The glass top will then function as the left side panel, the PSU will be on the bottom and you can install up to three 120 mm fans under the top. All fan mounting spaces will be equipped with dust filters. The Nanoxia Project S will be available in Europe from August.
