DEEPCOOL's Tristellar S - Limited Edition Flair

👤by Tim Harmer Comments 📅11.09.2015 16:31:13

Computex 2015 was the event to be at for case manufacturers this year, with each keen to show off their design skills and unique flair. Such was the case for DEEPCOOL, Chinese cooling specialists who have in recent years created eye-catching coolers and cases to fit a wide range of tastes, who showed off an eye-catching modifications to their new Tristellar chassis alongside other attractive pieces. Little did we know then that a variant would be going into production.

Designed in collaboration with well-known modder Bill Owen of MNPCTECH, the Tristellar S is inspired by the iconic spacecraft you can find in the Star Wars universe, perhaps most notably the tri-wing Lambda-Class shuttle. Small tweaks throughout the case exterior show off the skill of the designers, whilst the immensely clean lines indicates they know just what an every-day user would want to see (or indeed not see).



The case accommodates petite systems with mITX motherboard, but doesn't restrict the user much beyond that. A 120mm fan position is ideal for CPU AIO liquid-cooling systems, where otherwise you're limited to a maximum cooler height of 85mm. By contrast VGA clearance is ample, with space for 320mm cards which utilise a triple-slot cooler design. A 90mm fan emplacement is also included in this compartment for better air circulation.

Storage options are as comprehensive as you could want in a compact design, with space for up to two 3.25" or three 2.5" HDDs/SSDs that can be installed toollessly. Space for a single slot-loaded optical drive bay is also included. Two USB 3.0 ports, a headphone jack and microphone jack round out the technical features you can expect to see on the front of the chassis.

Each Tristellar S has the blue and white livery of DEEPCOOL's performance-oriented GAMERSTORM brand, and bears Bill Owen's signature. Windows located is key positions around the case show off high-performance components, giving you just a few more bragging rights.



Unfortunately only a lucky few will be able to get their hands on a Tristellar S as the model is a limited edition run of just fifty pieces. It will be availably globally this month, priced at an MSRP of $599.99. Meanwhile if you want to work your own magic on a similar canvas the regular Tristellar is also available.
