ASUS Presents New TA-89 Chassis

ASUS has announced the TA-89 Series chassis with an advanced ventilation design, injury-proof installation, easy access to hardware components and a large hardware capacity for customized PC building. Additionally, its well-built frame and independent USB port design provides users with convenient access to USB devices and avoids mutual interference when multiple USB devices are connected.

The TA-89 supports dual 80mm rear and front fans, with the option of upgrading the front fan to a 120mm large fan. The side venting holes pull in cool air to lower CPU and graphic card temperatures and the air-duct funnels the cool air towards the CPU, while the rear venting holes enhance ventilation around the add-on cards.

The screw-less hard drive cage with user-friendly holders and side panels with thumbscrews enable easy system upgrade and maintenance. The injury-proof hard drive cage and folded metal edges protect fingers from scrapes and cuts. The spring-opened optical drive door allows quick access to optical devices, and intelligently located USB ports avoid mutual interference when multiple USB devices are connected.

The TA-89 provides support for four 5.25-inch and six 3.5-inch drive bays, seven PCI slots, two USB ports and two audio ports to support an array of optical drives, hard disks, sound cards, LAN cards and peripherals.
