LG Launches EA93, 29-inch 21:9 Ultrawidescreen Monitor, in Korea

Raidmax Announces the Wide-Bodied COBRA Mid Tower Chassis

Today Raidmax announced COBRA, a new mid tower chassis with a patented wide body design, featuring LED lights, tool-less installations, and a "thermal" design.

The 525x240x460mm COBRA has space for up to three 3.5" and four 2.5" hard drives, that can be installed in the HDD cages without any tools. These hard drives just slide into the bay thanks to the COBRA's rail slide technology. The three 5.25 bays also have a tool-free design, allowing for simple optical drive installation. The smart one-click 5.25" bay covers on the front of the case come off with limited effort, and make it even easier to install optical drives.

COBRA can accommodate CPU coolers up to 6.9" tall, and has 25cm behind the motherboard tray for cable management. There are seven vented PCI slots and expansion cards up to 16.3" in length fit in the chassis when the 2.5" HDD cage is removed.

There are one rear 120mm fan and one front 120mm fan with a green LED glow. At the top of the Raidmax COBRA two 120mm fans or one 180mm fan can be placed. Also, another 120mm fan can be placed on the floor on the chassis. Underneath where the power supply sits is a PSU fan filter. The COBRA also supports water cooling with three rubber grommets in the rear of the chassis for water cooling tubes.

The I/O panel has one USB 3.0, one USB 2.0 and audio ports. The power button and reset button sit on opposite sides of the I/O panel.

The Raidmax COBRA will be available in the US and Canada in December for the suggested retail price of US$69.99.
