December 16th, 2021, Taipei, Taiwan – AZZA, a leading brand of computer cases and accessories, introduces the futuristic high-end OPUS 809. The luxury tower has a minimal footprint of 32cm2 yet capable of supporting full-ATX tower hardware. Flanked by 4 darkly tinted tempered glass panels and built on a 4mm thick CNC milled aluminum frame, the OPUS ensures a unique PC look standing vertical or horizontal, and with its semi-open design, ensures adequate airflow to high-end components up to 360mm long triple slot GPU, 360 AIO, ATX motherboard and PSU, and dual storage drives.

Futuristic Aesthetic with Dual Orientation

Mixing precision and style, the anodized and sandblasted 4mm CNC milled aluminum frame of the OPUS with sharp angles and “X” shape gives the case a futuristic design. Surrounded by 4 tinted tempered glass panels, the OPUS ensures the PC remains elegant no matter which side is exposed. The unique shape and sturdiness of the case allows it to be placed in two orientations, vertically for a minimal 32 x 32cm footprint, or horizontally, changing the look of the PC entirely.

Ingenious Design

The OPUS required rethinking standard case designs. Entirely modular, each panel can be removed to open up access to the inside of the case. The vertical GPU bracket is entirely removable to provide access to the PSU installation, which sits at the bottom of the case. At the rear and away from the motherboard and GPU, the fan/radiator bracket is entirely removable and sits on tracks to ease its installation. Inspired by SFF tower designs, every component is separated and has access to a direct fresh air intake, ensuring peak performance.

Ready for High Performance

The OPUS’ unique form factor doesn’t limit its ability to support large high-performance components. With support from Mini-ITX to ATX motherboards, up to 360mm long triple-slot GPUs, a 360 radiator, ATX PSU, and 2x 2.5” SSDs or 1x 2.5” SDD and 1x 3.5” HDD, users have the possibility to build a powerful PC with modern hardware without holding back.

Is that a pun on the open air nature of the case? [emoji14]

It certainly has an interesting design. 4mm is pretty thick, but the choice of aluminum over steel give the option to anodized and change the color (either by the home enthusiast or the manufacturer). I still think I might prefer a thinner steel chassis, but only because it would offer a slightly smaller footprint. I fully appreciate that the choice of material and thickness is part of the aesthetic as well functional. I would like this case more as a special order that could add customization. If I could choose designs and have them milled into the aluminum, or have a choice of colors/patterns/hydrodipping then I would be more likely to consider this case, even at a stiff premium.

Just my .02

There are plenty of machine and specialty shops that will do exactly this for a (no so) small price. Hydro dipping can actually be done pretty easily by the end-user too.

Yeah I get that. I'm just saying this particular case would be a bigger draw for me if those options were available from the manufacturer instead of sourcing the work locally. I would settle for different color schemes though
