Genesis, a company best known for its range of affordable peripherals, is today launching the latest in their range of PC enclosures. The Irid 505 White ARGB is an all-white variant of their mainstream Irid 505, a chassis designed for ATX systems with a few stylish flourishes that shows off internal components and provides modest cooling features for a wide audience. This white interior and exterior model with internal illumination is available for $119.99/109.00.

The case features a perforated front facia to promote good air flow and hardened glass side panel to display your high-performance components. Users with a creative outlook will find the white interior and exterior to be a great blank canvas on which to stamp their own personality, while ARGB illumination will make for an attractive aesthetic no matter your talents.

Cooling can be augmented by additional 120/140mm fans beyond the four 120mm included, anti-dust filters on intakes will help to keep the interior clean, and plenty of cable channels will keep the build un-cluttered. Up to five SSDs are supported with conventional mounting as well as two 3.5" HDDs or an additional two SSDs.

Conventional and AIO water cooling is supported by mounting positions for up to 280mm radiators in the roof and front, while a single 120mm radiator can be mounted at the rear. Front panel connectors are solid, offering two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports and two HD audio jacks (for stereo audio and microphone-in).
