Assimilate your desktop gaming or workstation with the Limited Collector's Edition variant of our Star Trek Borg Cube ATX computer. Featuring the unique look of the Artifact Borg cube starship seen in Star Trek: Picard, this Star Trek computer case is extreme in every way.

Custom features include hand-painted details and extensive fiber optics. You can also choose between our addressable or standard RGB lighting packages, to show off your favorite colors. It's not just a powerful computer; moreover, it's a beautiful art piece that demands attention. This Star Trek: Picard Borg Cube ATX PC case can also be used as a standalone display piece, complete with details and lighting.

Each case has 16 Borg panels, and each panel has vents of different sizes. We put a lot of thought into this when we designed these Star Trek computer cases - they are not just black boxes with 3 fans on the back; our Star Trek Borg Cube PC cases need to breathe!

A computer case, also known as a computer chassis, is the enclosure that contains most of the hardware of a personal computer. The components housed inside the case (such as the CPU, motherboard, memory, mass storage devices, power supply unit and various expansion cards) are referred as the internal hardware, while hardware outside the case (typically cable-linked or plug-and-play devices such as the display, speakers, keyboard, mouse and USB flash drives) are known as peripherals.

Cases can come in many different sizes and shapes, which are usually determined by the form factor of the motherboard since it is physically the largest hardware component in most computers. Consequently, personal computer form factors typically specify only the internal dimensions and layout of the case. Form factors for rack-mounted and blade servers may include precise external dimensions as well since these cases must themselves fit in specific enclosures.

Full tower cases are typically 56 cm (22 in) or more in height and intended to stand on the floor. They can have anywhere from six to ten externally accessible drive bays. The full tower case was originally developed to house file servers which would typically be tasked with serving data from expensive CD-ROM databases that held more data than the hard drives commonly available at the time. Hence, many full tower cases include locking doors and other physical security features to prevent theft of the discs. However, as computing technology moves from floppy disks and CD-ROMs to large capacity hard drives, USB flash drives, and network-based solutions, more recent full tower cases typically only have none, one, or two external bays for CD drives, with the internal bays moved elsewhere in the case to improve airflow. Today, full tower cases are commonly used by enthusiasts as showpiece display cases with custom water cooling, lighting, and tempered glass (replacing acrylic).[7][8][9] They may also hold two computers (as is the case with the Corsair 1000D) and dual power supplies (Corsair 900D).[10][11]

The marketing term midi-tower sometimes refers to cases smaller than mid-tower but larger than mini-tower, typically with two to three external bays.[14] Other times the term may be synonymous with mid-tower.[15]

Computer cases usually include sheet metal enclosures for a power supply unit and drive bays, as well as a rear panel that can accommodate peripheral connectors protruding from the motherboard and expansion slots. Most cases also have a power button or switch, a reset button, and LEDs to indicate power, hard drive activity, and network activity in some models. Some cases include built-in I/O ports (such as USB and headphone ports) on the front of the case. Such a case will also (normally) include the wires needed to connect these ports, switches, and indicators to the motherboard.[16]

Accessing the interior components of a modern ATX tower case is done by removing the side panels. Looking front-to-back, accessing the motherboard, PSU, drive bays, and most case fan installation points are done by removing the left side panel.Removing the right-side panel is done less often to access the space behind the motherboard mounting plate. This space is devoted to cable management, as cables routed in front of the motherboard may disrupt the flow of air within the case causing increased temperatures.[17] BTX, an uncontemporary standard, has the main side panel on the right side as opposed to the left. Some upside-down designed ATX cases are also accessed by removing the right-side panel door.

Traditionally, most computer cases required computer case screws to hold components and panels in place (i.e. motherboard, PSU, drives, and expansion cards). From the early 2000s onwards there is a trend towards tool-less cases, in which components are held together with snap-in plastic rails, thumbscrews, and other methods that do not require tools; this facilitates quick assembly and modification of computer hardware and is also cheaper to manufacture.

Throughout the 1990s, most computer cases had simple rectangular shapes, and were often painted beige or white with little attention given to the visual design. Beige box designs are still found on a large number of budget computers assembled from generic components. This class of machines is still known as white box computers. More modern computer cases include a much wider range of variation in shape, color, form factor, and materials, such as brushed aluminium and/or tempered glass which are offered with more expensive cases.

Case modding is the artistic styling of computer cases, often to draw attention to the use of advanced or unusual components. Since the early 2000s, some cases have included clear side panels or acrylic windows so that users can look inside while it is operating. Modded cases may also include colored internal lighting, custom paint, or liquid cooling systems. Some hobbyists build custom cases from raw materials like aluminum, steel, styrofoam, acrylic, or wood.

Historically, cases used CCFL lighting[18] and eventually single color LEDs as strips or in fans to illuminate their interior; modern cases use RGB LED lighting instead, often incorporated into case fans. To improve airflow while allowing RGB fans to be visible, many cases as of 2020 use metal meshes, without any external bays.[19] Many include a PSU shroud and vertical gpu mounts. Some used to include holes to support external water cooling radiators.[20][21][22][23][24][25] Cases with side windows may have side fans (on the window) as well, although it is uncommon for cases with glass windows to have side fans.[26]

Some computer cases include a biased switch (push-button) which connects to the motherboard. When the case is opened, the switch position changes, and the system records this change. The system's firmware or BIOS may be configured to report this event the next time it is powered on.

This physical intrusion detection system may help computer owners detect tampering with their computers. However, most such systems are quite simple in construction; a knowledgeable intruder can open the case or modify its contents without triggering the switch.

In the past, many tower cases intended to house file servers featured a locking door covering the external drive bays. This was a security feature intended to prevent the theft of the CD-ROM discs the drives would be holding. At the time, CD-ROM capacity was larger than the hard disks available, and many business-critical databases were distributed on this media. These databases were often very expensive or held proprietary data, and hence would be likely targets for casual theft.

Desktop computer cases are the first step to building a customized PC. The empty chassis is waiting for you to add a hard drive, motherboard, graphics cards, and other components you desire, so your machine serves your exact needs. Many also have sleek and stylish designs, and even external lighting.

How to Choose a Desktop Computer CaseComputer cases often feature a number of ports. Make sure there are enough to serve your requirements, and that they line up with the motherboard form factor that you install. If you want to be able to see your components, choose a case with one side made of tempered glass, which serves as a durable but transparent barrier. Size also matters, so choose a tower that's large enough to hold all the components you want to include, including extra fans and other cooling systems if your goal is a gaming system. If style is important, many cases feature lighting or other cool design touches that add visual appeal.

A mid tower case is smaller than a desktop full tower case, and accommodates smaller micro-ATX form factor motherboards. With a full tower size, you have more room for adding components, which is especially useful for building a gaming PC that uses graphic cards and sound cards to maximize performance. Mid tower cases take up less room, making them well suited for areas where space is limited. They can still house sufficient components to build a powerful PC or home server. 041b061a72
