The US startup Kimera Industries says it has completed its draft of the additional small mATX Computer Case Cerberus and leave on March 1 to start the associated IndieGoGo campaign.

The American company is finalizing the design and announcement of the campaign known on his blog. The case where the two men have worked behind the company since 2014, has a capacity of 18.2 liters. That’s less than housing as the Silverstone FT03 and the Corsair Carbide Air 240 and even less than some mini-ITX enclosures. What concern size, Cerberus comes out on 303mm high, 170mm wide and 354mm deep. The authors argue that in this case nevertheless apply a mATX motherboard and two full size graphics cards.

The housing will be available in black and white, with red, blue and dark gray as optional stretch goals within the campaign. The design of the exterior of the housing is deliberately kept minimal, and in order to reinforce this appearance is the front panel I / O in the course of the design process is also moved to the top. Will also be options a handle on the top and a partially transparent side panel.

Kimera Cerberus blowup In order to provide system builders flexibility with regard to the incorporation of small components in the inside of the Cerberus, Kimera rarely deals with screw holes. Instead of holes, which predetermine where the parts should enter the cabinet works with what the company calls Infinite vents. These are ventilation meshes which mounting clips can be mounted as drives, fans and stick radiators turn parts. What engage those fans and radiators: Kimera promises that there is room for fans of 140mm in diameter and 240mm radiators.

Kimera has already on his website set put which party will be responsible for manufacturing the housings. For this the company has taken an American manufacturer in the arm. Possible Kimera pays so much attention to informing potential backers about the case and its production because it’s their first product. That does not mean that the Kimera Cerberus has no chance of success: the Ncase M1, a crowdfunded mini-ITX enclosure, the product of a very similar process. How much Cerberus will cost at Indie Gogo, is not known.
