EDGE – great airflow, silence and plenty of space for a whole lot of HDD’s and opticals. Hard disk drives and DVD-players are installed inside the EDGE case with rails. These rails allow an easy and tool-less installation of these components. The side panel and the secondary bay door can be locked individually. This provides maximum security for your components. Unused rails can be stored in an special compartment so you will not loose them in due time.

The Nexus Edge case is a Full-tower big case that fits ATX/Flex ATX/Micro ATX and Full ATX motherboards.

Noise absorption wave foam
The side panels of the Edge case are fully covered with noise absorption wave foam to absorb noises and sounds from the inside of the case.

Stunning front panel
The front panel is from 3mm thick aluminum with three stunning finishes. The right hand side of the front panel has the recognizable aluminum hairline finish and the left hand size has a sand-spray mat finish. And at the edge, where these two different surface treatments come together, has been polished to a mirror finish line.

Sure you need good cooling…but you do not want the noise…right? We fitted the Edge with 3 pieces of real silent 14cm (!) case fans. These fans run at 1000 RPM and move a massive amount of air….but all ultra quiet.

Rubber buffering
When you install the power supply of your choice in the Edge case you will notice that you lay the PSU on nice, soft rubber buffers. These buffers prevent resonance and vibration and make sure the PSU has enough room to ‘breathe’ so the fan speed of the PSU is not influenced by air obstruction.

At the air intake areas such as at the front 14cm case fan we have positioned some filter parts to keep the dust out of the case. Also at the ventilation and air-intake holes in the bottom of the case there are 2 dust filters.

And to keep things nice and simple… HDD’s and opticals are fitted tool-less.

The Nexus EDGE is expected to retail for around 160 EUR.
