Xanthos

 

With the Xanthos we present a very attractive midi tower with impressive features.

In contrast to other PC-cases, the Xanthos stands out through its completely unique design. The front with its gentle angles in unobtrusive matt black, in conjunction with the blue illuminated fan before located in front of the hard disks gives the Midi Tower a timeless, elegant design. In order to keep the noble look, the tower is equipped with two flip-down covers, to cover the 5.25 inch bays. 

Like the rest of our Midi Tower Case series, the Xanthos is solidly built and exemplary equipped. With a material thickness of 0.8 mm, the chassis is designed as solid and massive as it is seldom found today. Thus, the tower offers high stability for users who like to take their cases to LAN parties. In the production has been carefully paid attention to folded and deburred edges, so that the user is effectively protected from cuts during the installation. This also documents the high quality of the spacious midi tower. 

Four external 5.25 inch drive bays are available, which are equipped with quick-lock fasteners. One of the bays is fitted to for an external 3.5 inch device, like a card reader or a floppy drive. An adapter is included. The HDD-cage can be filled with up to five 3.5 inch hard disk drives. For easy installation of the drives, the cage can be removed, the HDD are installed in aluminium trays and secured without tools or screws. Since both the HDD cage and the individual trays are equipped with plastic bearings, vibrations of the drives are significantly reduced.

A low-noise, blue-lit 140 mm fan is installed behind the front, a black 120 mm fan is located at the back for an effective heat dissipation of the system. Up to five fans can be installed in the case. Two 120 mm ventilators can be mounted under the top cover, at the case bottom, another 120 or 140 mm fan can be installed. Dust filters in the front and bottom of the case effectively prevent dust particles from being sucked into the interior.

The power supply is mounted at the bottom of the Xanthos. 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.

The Xanthos is an elaborate, elegant and in every respect convincing case that its owner will surely enjoy using. In the top cover, you can find 2 x USB 2.0, 2 x USB 3.0, as well as the mandatory audio connectors. You can easily install a large CPU-cooler; a corresponding cutout in the motherboard tray allows easy removal or installation. Tool-free installation of drives and expansion cards is a given, as are dust filters for the fans. As can be expected, the workmanship is excellent and our Xanthos will convince you in every way possible. 

The two external USB 3.0 ports (Type A female) can be connected via an internal 19-pin USB 3.0 port directly to the motherboard. If your motherboard should have no internal 19-pin connector, you can purchase an adapter from your local supplier.
