Although the future is all about miniaturization and thus we should see powerful systems which will fit at the palm of our hands sooner rather than later i still haven't given up on full towers. Of course this might have to do with my line of work but still as far back as i can remember I’ve always preferred full towers over midi/mini ones so it may just be me. However i can't deny that there's an increase in demand for mATX/mITX cases lately mainly from people who are either looking for something to blend in beneath/next to their TV set or people who just don't want to sacrifice much room space. The only downside with the majority of HTPC cases out in the market is their design since with very few exceptions (like the train model by Lian-Li) they have nothing to show for. Well Deepcool decided to address that issue with their latest Steam Castle mATX/mITX compatible PC case.

Deepcool design and manufacture a comprehensive range of high quality products, covering desktop cooling solutions, laptop cooling solutions, server cooling solutions, embedded cooling solutions, and other thermal components. Our goal is to maintain customer satisfaction by serving our customer’s ever-changing thermal needs and providing the quickest and most comprehensive service available. As our slogan goes, we wish you all “Enjoy your cool life”!
The Steam Castle may look like nothing else in the market currently but it's based on a cube-style micro-ATX chassis like many others in the market currently so if you feel like you've seen the same interior someplace else then chances are you're correct. That being said aside its design Deepcool also makes the Steam Castle available in 4 different colors (black, white, yellow, and red) with the black version featuring a nice rubber matte coat and the other three a glossy exterior (like the red we have here with us). Now although the Steam Castle is by no means a large HTPC case still it offers room for a 280mm radiator at the top (or two 140/120mm fans), graphics cards up to 320mm in length, CPU coolers up to 200mm in height, tool-free drive bays, two pre-installed fans (200mm/120mm), 4 LEDs at the top that can change colors and a very convenient fan controller which can also be used to adjust the brightness and color of the top LEDs. So let's take a closer look to see what the Steam Castle by Deepcool is all about.
