Jonsbo comes out swinging with the VR1

The mini-ITX form-factor is really exploding with the current generation of  components.  Every major manufacturer now has a at least one motherboard that supports each of the three chipsets in the Intel 100 series. I’m sure there will be AMD ITX boards when ZEN finally launches.

But with the trendiness of the form factor, that may  leave some of us questioning what are we going to put our speedy compact builds in? Well, Jonsbo may have the answer you seek in the form of the VR1.

The VR1 sports aluminum and tempered glass shell, vertical motherboard layout, and support for GPU’s of up 320mm. That’s just the beginning of all the goodies that come built into the case.  We know that the Cyrorig OLA is everyone’s darling case, but the VR1 is capable of standing toe to toe.

Rolling around – white knight pi itx case review

Most cases are some form of a box and with good reason – most components these days are still some form of rectangle. The only component that we can think of as uniformly not a cube of some sort are the cylindrical liquid reservoirs and the tubing that comes to and from them.

After seeing Apple’s unveiling of the current design of the Mac Pro, I patiently waited for a manufacturer to produce a round computer case.  I waited and waited and still nothing came to market. We had all but forgotten about the nition of owning a case that didn’t come in the shape of a shipping container. That is, until we stumbled across the White Knight Pi.
