ASUS Introduces VENTO TA-M2 Chassis

ASUS released the new ASUS VENTO TA-M2 Chassis. It incorporates screw-less design for easy installation and maximizes thermal efficiency for key components, especially the CPU and graphics cards.

The VENTO TA-M2 supports 1 front LED, 1 rear and 2 side LED 12cm fans. Additionally, the side panel fans are located on an adjustable plate for easy customization. This is especially useful to target specific hotspots and lower CPU and video card temperatures. The VENTO TA-M2 also features a mesh design for the front panel and side panel for maximum ventilation. Furthermore, venting holes found around the HDD racks enhance ventilation for hard disks. The VENTO TA-M2 also provides extra space to fit either a single graphics card of up to 380mm or SLI/Crossfire cards of up to 280mm.

The new chassis provides a patented screw-less design for the ODD and PCI slots. Furthermore, dust filters for the ODD cover and the front fan rack are easily removable for for cleaning and maintenance. The addition of a 5.25-inch rack convertible into a 3.5-inch slot provides better expandability options. Last but no least, the front I/Os are located on the top panel for easy accessibility.

The VENTO TA-M2 employs a matte black-coated paint finish and a silver frame. The VENTO TA-M2 also utilizes foot stands typically found on stereos, enhancing the overall style and stability of the entire chassis.
