Building on the idea behind the DB1 computer case, Streacom introduced the DB1 Max case. It is also intended for building a small desktop computer with passive cooling, but the power dissipation has been increased from 35 watts to 65 watts. This is due to the fact that now not one side of the case serves as a ribbed heatsink, but both.
The case with dimensions of 222 × 222 × 118 mm is designed for a Thin mini-ITX board. Placement of an expansion card or drive is not provided – you will have to limit yourself to the drive installed in the M.2 slot on the board. The I / O panel has one USB connector and a power button. By default, this is USB-A, but you can replace it with USB-C.
The Streacom DB1 Max case should be on sale in the first quarter of 2022. It will be offered in three color options. The body is expected to cost around 110 euros.
