EVGA launches cable suspension PC chassis starting at $1,599

WTF?! Open-air case designs have long been a viable choice for PC users who would like something just a little different. However, EVGA’s latest boutique option takes what to the extreme with a cost to complement. Those ready to spend the amount of money with this unique system ought to know there will not be most of them.

The E1 Frame Set is really a new open-air chassis from EVGA that can be found now. Open-air cases aren’t new, but that one sticks out by holding PC components in-place with steel suspension cables. The nonexistent covering and 100-percent weave carbon fiber frame likely get this to among the lightest chassis ever at only 2.76lbs.

The frame and cables contain the motherboard set up while brackets on leading band back contain the graphics card and power, respectively. Mesh racks privately and top can support coolers. In addition, it includes analog temperature gauges to improve the E1’s industrial theme. Mounted on the meters is really a front I/O port with two USB 3.2 Type-A and something USB-C port. The E1 supports mini-ITX, micro-ATX, ATX, and eATX motherboards.

The three packages EVGA offers are notably expensive, and none add a complete PC. The Chassis alone (with the gauges and GPU bracket) start at $1,599, as the other two options add PC components. The middle-tier E1 Kit 1 includes an RTX 3090 Ti K|NGP|N and a 1600w PSU for $3,699. The priciest set ironically dubbed the E1 Bare Bones throws in a Z690 DARK K|NGP|N motherboard, a PowerLink 52u adapter for the 3090, and a fancy shipping case for $4,999. That still leaves a CPU, RAM, storage, and CPU cooler that users must purchase separately.

Those prices might look crazy to many people, but EVGA clearly labeled the E1 being an exclusive product when unveiling it in January. Quantities will undoubtedly be quite limited, and only EVGA members can buy the E1.

Open-air cases may leave PC components more subjected to dust and moisture than standard chassis while also increasing noise. However, the superior airflow helps the machine stay cool while potentially allowing more space for components and easier usage of them. Antec started offering its still-expensive but more sensible $500 Canon case in-may. Japanese company Nagao Industry produces the N-Frame-OP01 mount to permit monitor installation privately of an open-air chassis.
