What just happened? Among the many products on display at CES, there were many innovative PC cases. The latest is from iBUYPOWER subsidiary Hyte, whose Y60 ATX PC case is engineered to showcase your computer’s hardware through the panoramic views provided by its design.
Instead of tempered glass on one side, as in most PC cases, a mid-tower case Hyte Y60 ATX PC The case has three removable glass panels without bezels: on the side, in the front and in the corner. This looks quite overwhelming, especially when the system uses a dedicated water-cooled unit like in the example below.
Three panels are easy to remove and attach, which, as you might guess, greatly simplifies the work inside the case. Interestingly, the Y60 is designed in such a way that the graphics card can only be installed vertically using the supplied PCIe 4.0 adapter cable, which, together with the card’s PCB, is hidden behind a cover that matches the color of the case’s exterior. Hyte adds that there is enough room in the chassis to accommodate half-height expansion cards behind the GPU.
The Y60 comes with three 120mm fans: two air intakes in the floor and one exhaust in the rear. Users can also install a 280mm radiator on the side and a 360mm radiator on the roof. Hyte says its “cold floor” design eliminates hot spots with wide side vents, and its front chamber design separates cables from thermal components.
The Y60 will be available in all black, white and black, or red and black when it goes on sale in March for $ 199. That’s a decent price for such a unique case, and is $ 50 cheaper than the CyberPowerPC Deus Ex-like Kinetic Series with 18 motorized triangular vents.
