When is a Computer Case Not a Case at All?

 |  |  |  |  |  |  July 23, 2008

Looking for a way to keep your souped-up PC from overheating? This series of bold acrylic cases out of Japan does away with convention by doing away with the exterior case walls, thus eliminating much of the heat which might otherwise be trapped by a traditional enclosure.

Digital Cowboy’s Acrylic Cowboy computer cases sort of remind me of those old “visible man” anatomical models, spilling the guts of your PC all over the exterior for everyone to see.

Cases are available in several different styles, ranging from the beautiful, minimal orange platform design of the ACPC3 and the hot pink ACPCD, to the dramatic smoke grey/black ACPC4 which places your motherboard at an extra special 25 degree angle.

All models can house an ATX or Micro ATX logic board, and provide open bays underneath for mounting hard drives and optical storage devices with ease. As an added bonus, the open air designs make adding and removing cards, memory and storage about as easy as it gets too. Also, thanks to a pure acrylic motherboard shelf, it’s much less likely that you’ll ever short out the solder on the bottom of the board.

Acrylic Cowboy cases are now available from Hanwha Japan, with prices ranging from ¥3,980 (Appx. $37 USD) to ¥10,800 (Appx. $101 USD). And of course, there’s that small problem of trying to get one here from Japan.
