With the Timaios we present simple yet elegant Midi Tower. In the open state, the sophisticated color concept of the case is revealed. In the Timaios, everything is "black & white" ;-)

The fan behind the front cover is white illuminated; the Power and Reset buttons are equipped with white LEDs. The three included 120 mm fans located under the top cover and at the back of the case are in white, as well as the quick-lock fasteners of the optical devices and hard disks. The fan cables are covered by a white sleeve. In combination with the black lacquered chassis and the elegant front cover, this ensures a special optical highlight.

Four external 5.25 inch bays, as well as a slot for 3.5 inch drives or card reader, are available. The upper 5.25 inch bay is equipped with flip-down cover. This maintains a uniform color appearance even when using a different colored optical drive. It can be used with all conventional drives with tray. The installation of the upper two 5.25 inch drives is done via convenient quick-lock fasteners without the use of screws or tools.

There are four internal 3.5 inch bays in a rotated 90-degree cage with practical aluminium trays. The hard drives are easily installed screwless in the trays. If a particularly intense HDD cooling is desired, the slots can be equipped with 60 mm x 60 mm x 10 mm fans.

The power supply is mounted at the bottom of the Timaios. As it draws in cool air from the, the sound levels are reduced and the life expectancy of the power supply is increased. To prevent the suction of dust particles into the PSU, an easy-to-clean dust filter is mounted under the bottom.
Our innovative Advanced Modular Ventilation Concept is very effective:

The Timaios tower comes equipped with a 2-channel fan controller in the upper front area to be used with the included case fans. With our innovative "advanced modular ventilation concept", the system offers the possibility to configure the ventilation of your PC system according to your wishes and to choose between different fan combinations. It is for example possible to combine the front fan with the rear fan and regulated the top fan separately.

The cable length of the fans is about 50 cm and supports various configurations.

Behind the front panel a 140 mm white LED fan is located. Air intakes in the front panel effectively support fresh air. A positive effect of this is the optimum cooling of the installed hard disks. The fan in the front panel can be removed easily by simply unscrewing four screws, simplifying the fan assembly considerably. At the bottom an 80 or 120 mm fan can be mounted, if desired.

A 120 mm fan is pre-installed at the rear of the case, which provides an effective dissipation of heated air. Two 120 mm are installed under the top cover, effectively complementing the ventilation concept and optimize the heat dissipation.

The cooling performance of existing VGA cards and CPU coolers can be measurable improved and optimized by installing 92 or 120 mm fans in the two air holes in the side panel.

With the help of the fan controller, you can decrease the fan speed continuously until the fans stop (Silent or Sleep Mode). Please note that the lighting of the front fan is also turned off in sleep mode.
The preparation of the side panel for two 120 mm fan provides additional design options.
For simplified installation of external water cooling components, the Timaios has two rubber hose outlets in the rear panel.

The Timaios is designed for standard ATX power supplies. You can install both ATX as well as Micro-ATX motherboards. Included is a 30 cm long extension cable for the 4-pin Intel P4 connector (CPU power).

The two external USB 3.0 ports can be connected externally to the motherboard. For this, the cables can for example be led through the water cooling hose guides, as shown in the picture, and then connected to the external USB 3.0 ports of the motherboard or an extension card. It is of course mandatory, that such connections are available. The USB 3.0 ports are of course also compatible to USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 standards, but at a reduced bandwidth.
