Chassis Size Comparison Video

Mainstream computers have gotten smaller and smaller over the years, as more functionality can be bundled into fewer chips - like integrating graphics into CPUs, as is common from both AMD and Intel today, or even full ‘system on a chip’ (SoC) configurations like smart phones and tablets use. As such, folks are sometimes surprised about how large many of the systems we offer are. We list dimensions, but those can be hard to visualize - so Jeff did a great comparison of case sizes compared to a can of Coke recently. That is perfect for sizing an individual chassis, but it may help to see all of our current (as of this writing) cases next to each other - to better judge how big or small they are relative to the other options in our product line. As such, I’ve put together the video below. It covers all the cases we commonly use as of early 2016, and includes basic info about what size of motherboards they fit and which of our branded systems they are used on. Enjoy!
