With the CoolForce 2 Rev. B, we present a slightly revised edition of the first case of our CoolForce case series.
The models of the CoolForce series are aimed at fans of water-cooled systems and offer various possibilities for the installation of radiators and other water cooling components. The case offers a very elegant front design that on the one hand is very elegant and simple, but on the other hand is also – thanks to two pre-installed, green-lit LEDs – a real eye-catcher.
Based on the suggestions of our customers, our design team has developed meaningful optimizations in the context of product development, which you will find in the present revision. The case front was reworked slightly, to offer the user an unhindered access to the dust filter and the front fans. The I/O-panel has been separated from the rest of the front, which allows to easily remove the front panel.
Further changes include the I/O-panel itself. The CoolForce 2 offers a USB 3.1 connector, which can be routed to the appropriate external port of the motherboard. The LED On/Off button for the front-mounted 30 cm Rigid LED bars has been moved to the top as well, making it easier to use.
Finally, we decided in favor of the optimal noise insulation to use sound absorbing materials on both side panels and remove the window side panel.
The CoolForce 2 Rev. B offers many practical features, such as the Nanoxia AirCover and Nanoxia ModuWand (modular Wall). The ModuWand is one of the outstanding features of the case. If necessary, it can simply be removed to install longer video cards or it can be equipped with fans, hard drives or a reservoir / pump for a water cooling system.
The front of the case is deliberately held simple, visually striking are the LED bars which shine through the louvers, as well as the green illuminated Nanoxia logo. Two bays for installing optical drives are available. The optical drives offer tool-free mounting.
At the top you can find the I/O-Panel of the case. If you look straight at the front, you can see at the left side the USB ports (1 x USB 3.1, 2 x USB 3.0), and the LED on/off button – allowing you to comfortably turn off the Rigid LED strips. Located in the right side are the HD-Audio connectors and the three-step fan control (5V, 7V, 12V). Power- and Reset-Button are located in the middle.
Also in the top cover, there is our practical Nanoxia “Air Cover”. This cover can be conveniently removed when users want to install fans or radiators. This preserves the simple look of the case, without sacrificing useful features and ventilation.
The side panels are equipped with the noise-reducing insulation materials. These are designed to minimize any noises from inside the case.
The hard disks and power supply are mounted using rubber suspension. The case stands on decoupled feet – thereby vibrations are reduces notably.
By using materials of the highest quality we ensure that the case is extremely stable.
Another important part of the noiseless concept are the pre-installed CoolForce fans. The quiet-running models are designed for the best possible compromise between cooling performance and low noise levels.
Intelligent ventilation system
Behind the front cover, two 140 mm CoolForce fans rotate at a maximum of 1,100 RPM. The fans are located in special swiveling brackets which allow for simple removal of the fans and easy access to the serial dust filters. Mounted at the back of the case is a 140 mm fan (max. 1,100 rpm).
If the AirCover is removed, up to three additional 120 or 140 mm fans can be installed under the top. Other fans can be mounted on the ModuWand and the bottom of the case. Through this, a maximum of nine fans can be installed in the CoolForce 2 Rev. B.
The pre-installed 3-stage fan controller allows to control up to three case fans, which allows an individual compromise between low system temperatures and the lowest possible noise level can be achieved, even with a full fan assembly.
The CoolForce 2 Rev. B is designed as an entry-level case for water cooling enthusiasts. Behind the front panel, there is enough space for 240 mm radiators or compact water cooling solutions. Under the top cover, users can install 360 mm radiators without any problems.
The case has special, laterally offset mounting points that allow maximum compatibility, especially when using particularly thick radiators. However, it may be necessary to install in low-profile RAM in this case.
As usual, we offer customers maximum freedom when installing hard drives:
For fans of SSDs no less than four dedicated mounting spaces are available in the case – three can be found on the left side, as seen from the front; one is located in the back of the motherboard tray. The ModuWand also offers the possibility to mount two 2.5 inch or 3.5 inch drives – even two drives (2 x 2.5 inch, 2 x 3.5 inch) per side, if desired.
A fully modular HDD cage for two 3.5 inch hard drives can be found between the ModuWand and the front. They come with mounting rails to significantly expand the disk capacity, using our separately available HDD cages. Included are special SATA combination cables to allow the trouble-free installation of the hard drives on the ModuWand or on the 2.5 inch holders. These are also available separately.
In the CoolForce 2 Rev. B you have the possibility to install graphic cards with a length of up to 300 mm. By removing the ModuWand, cards with 430 mm installation length can be fit inside the case.
Four rubber hose guides for external water cooling solutions can be found in the rear panel.
In addition to high-end graphic cards, users can install CPU coolers of up to 185 mm in height. Eight PCI expansion slots are located in the rear – the installation of a multi-GPU system is therefore possible at any time.
