Backers will have the chance to get first access to the first batch of TAKU cases once in production.

Space-Saver, Multifunction

The Cryorig TAKU chassis is designed to save space on your desktop as well as to provide viewing comfort by improving the ergonomics in your desk. It is both a PC case and a monitor stand for you to raise your monitor higher and to more comfortable levels. It is offered as a high-end mini-ITX form factor chassis that can house graphics cards as long as 280mm. It has support for ITX motherboards, SFX or SFX-L power supplies. For storage space, the TAKU supports one 3.5-inch hard drive and two 2.5-inch drives.

Sturdy and Smart
The TAKU features solid aluminium panels making it sturdy to support up to 15 kilograms on top of it. The chassis also features smart layout by using a sliding system tray for easy access on the hardware installed inside without dismantling the entire desktop setup. On the right side of the chassis, there are dual USB 3.0 ports and the set of audio ports which are accessible and in reach. Cryorig reports there will be a type-C port for future models. There are two small cable routing holes in front of the TAKU chassis for charging cables and others that might be needed to be routed in the front of the chassis.

Unique Aesthetics

The Cryorig TAKU case uses a combination of wood and aluminium giving it a unique look that has an organic at the same time a touch of modern Technology. Cryorig will be bundling the TAKU chassis with the Cryorig C7 ITX CPU cooler. Once the TAKU project exceeds orders of 1,000 unit, Cryorig will offer multiple colour options and material options.
