Akasa's Booth

As we cover more and more shows, we've noticed Akasa showcasing an increasing variety of chassis and cooling equipment. We show you some new items that look really interesting.

This is the new Venom Toxic chassis that's really geared for the no nonsense gamers. With space up to four high-end graphics cards (up to 330mm in length), it has excellent ventilation characteristics with space to accommodate massive 120mm or even 140mm fans in several locations. The case also has cable routing in mind and the base tray has several accessible slots to route cables underneath the motherboard tray. Other features include water-cooling system ready design, dust filters integration, tool-free installation and a very handy front I/O panel. In case you're wondering, the chassis is made of SECC steel and the size is 232 x 555 x 620mm (W x D x H).

To accompany the new Venom casing, there's also a new Venom cooler - the Voodoo. Specs include dual 120mm PWM fans, six heat pipes with direct CPU contact, S-Flow fan blades for better airflow and rubber fan mounts for quiet performance.

This is one of their newer front-panel accessories, the FC.Trio fan controller hub. With a brushed aluminum panel, tri-fan control a VFD display, you would wish it came bundled with the Venom casing.

Meet the Bay Master S, one of the more versatile front panel bays with a simple finish that would go well with any chassis. It combines front panel USB 3.0 ports with card reader functionality and a 2.5-inch HDD/SSD bay.
