Several months ago we received an email regarding the chance to review a very interesting case called the XClio 1000. At that time I searched and found very little info and never heard anything else from them until just recently. This time they offered to send a sample of this cool looking new case, so of course we jumped at the chance to check it out. This monster of a case is a Super Tower with a steel chassis that has 8 180mm tri colour LED fans. It can hold up to 12 hard drives based on their Smart Modular HDD system as well as an additional 3 5.25” devices like CD ROM drives. Do we have your attention yet! These are some pretty nice specs. Let's have a look at their company profile so we can learn a bit about XClio and how they roll.
XClio Profile as posted on their website:
The overwhelming popularity of the personal computer originated with IBMs compatible design. Starting with the AT design then todays popular ATX designs a new form factor evolves almost every other 10 years. Intel launched its new BTX form factors to the market in 2003, so we see the evolution from AT to ATX continue.
With continued research and development companies keep providing new technology that enhances components used in computers and consumer electronics (i.e. CPU, Hard Drives, video card, etc). Intel and AMD continue to introduce new processors that exponentially increase computing capabilities. Manufacturers of hard drives are providing drives with larger capacity, increased cache speeds and even the revolutions per minute has increased to 15,000 for SATA drives. Both nVIDIA and ATI manufacturers of video cards have increased their graphic process performance while requiring faster and larger memory. But, with all of these electronic components performing more, a great amount of heat is generated.
XCLIOs philosophy on designing cases is one of simplicity and practicality. XCLIO design group combines the expertise and ideas from designers locally and aboard. Our designs are verified against guidelines from the CE/FCC testing lab, temperature-testing lab, noisy testing lab, so we can achieve the following:
