A Micro-ATX case and fish tank combo #PCgaming @TomsHardware
China’s MetalFish has added a new PC case, called the Y2 Fish Tank Chassis. The product combines a Micro-ATX PC at the bottom with a fish tank above. If you are an aquarist and PC enthusiast looking for a new HTPC, this might be a match made in heaven. For others, MetalFish reckons its new product will help owners “feel relaxed and calm.”
Many PC makers describe the size of their PC cases in liters, but MetalFish has omitted this important spec for its Y2 Fish Tank Chassis. The dimensions of the complete tower are 370 x 250 x 290mm (about 27 liters), so that would give your fish about 13 liters to swim around in.
MetalFish bundles a USB-powered pump/filter/oxygenator. The LED light strip above the 5mm glass panel constructed water tank is also claimed to be tuned for fish and plant health, so it probably doesn’t sync with your RGB gaming peripherals. The case has separate RGB lighting, which can be turned on and off and adjusted using a supplied remote.
The Y2 Fish Tank Chassis can fit your choice of Micro-ATX/Mini-ITX motherboard.
