MetallicGear, a sub-brand of the Dutch Phanteks, has shown its Neo Pro casing during the CES. The case draws inspiration from the Mac Pro with a ‘cheese grater’ front panel. The company also shows a casing with 119 programmable RGB LEDs.
The MetallicGear Neo Pro offers a good airflow through its open front panel with cheese grater design, while at the same time this front muffles sound, Phanteks reports to Tom’s Hardware. The front is made of ABS plastic. The internal design of the Neo Pro shows some similarity with the P300 from parent company Phanteks. The casing offers space for an E-ATX motherboard and comes with a single 120 mm fan at the rear. The front offers space for two 140mm fans, but these are not included. AIO water coolers are also supported with this. The top has no room for fans. The Neo Pro has room for five 3.5 “HDDs. The casing also contains a plate that covers the power supply.
The Neo Pro is available in two colors: silver and black. The casing will be released in March and will receive a suggested retail price of $ 60, which, when converted and including VAT, amounts to around € 65. The casing of MetallicGear can be purchased via webshops such as Amazon.
MetallicGear also shows a Neo Matrix casing. This has a similar internal design as the Neo Pro, but offers space for two 140mm fans at the top and has a front panel with 119 argb LEDs in a grid of 7 by 17. It is still unclear how these LEDs can be programmed , but MetallicGear reports to HardwareCanucks that at least ‘many’ presets are delivered. The Neo Matrix will be released in March and will receive a suggested retail price that is approximately 109 euros with VAT.
