Shortly a lightly revised edition of the first model of our new CoolForce series will become available: The CoolForce 2 Rev. B. In the course of our continuing product development, our design team was able to implement optimizations, which are partly based on suggestions from customers and fans. Thus we were able to improve the user-friendliness of the case and integrate the latest technologies.
The main critique from reviewers and customers focused on the dust filter, which was hard to clean, and the complicated way to access the two front fans. Here we use a two-parted front-design in the new revision, separating the I/O-panel from the rest of the case front. This allows users to simply remove the main part of the front.
The dust filter is not connected to the fans, making it far easier to remove and clean it, even when the system is running. The access to the front fans and the installation of a radiator was also facilitated.
We also reworked the I/O-panel – here we decided to remove the single USB 2.0 port in favor of an ultramodern USB 3.1 connector. The LED On/Off-Button was moved to the I/O-panel as well, allowing easier control of the two Rigid LED bars. Overall, we were able to notably increase the user-friendliness of the CoolForce 2 in the new Rev. B.
The case offers a variety of features that one would not suspect in this price class. This includes, but is not limited, to the versatile ModuWand, the practical “AirCover” in the top, and the two pre-installed Rigid LED bars behind the front.
The all-round cooling system of the CoolForce 2 with three installed 140 mm fans (2 x front, 1 x rear) can be upgraded with additional 120/140 mm fans in the top (max. 3 x), the ModuWand (max. 2 x), and the bottom (max. 1 x).
A variety of installation options for hard disk – four dedicated SSD mounts, additional spots on the ModuWand and the HDD-cage behind the front – allow maximum variability for the installation of hard disks or solid state disks.
The CoolForce 2 Rev. B offers space for CPU coolers with a height of up to 185 mm and VGA cards with a length of up to 300 mm. And if you need more space, remove the ModuWand and install cards of up to 445 mm! And for your multi-GPU system, eight PCI expansion slots are available.
