Description (From ClearPC):
The ClearPC® 'Secret Agent' Briefcase is the smallest, lightest Full-ATX computer enclosure we manufacture. With James Bond styling, this briefcase is ideal for LAN gaming events and anywhere else where portability and power are paramount. The ClearPC® Secret Agent measures 14 1/4" H x 6 1/4" W x 18 1/2" L and weighs approx. 6lbs. This case has exactly 2 CD bays and 2 HDD bays. The default cooling arrangement sees 2 x 40mm fan receptacles placed in the rear, 2 x 40mm fan placements in an internal HDD cooling bay, 1 x 120mm fan on the side panel and a set of 6 vents on the side of the case for direct CPU cooling. With a tapered, contoured, 3/8" carrying handle, a completely rounded over design and innovative features found in no other case, the ClearPC Briefcase is sure to turn some heads.
The Secret Agent Briefcase ships with the following components:
-Full-ATX & Micro-ATX.
-2 x 5 1/4" (CDROM), 2 x 3 1/2" (HDD) (No FDD)
-Unibody. Not in kit form. Fully assembled utilizing just 2 thumbscrews and a molecular bonding agent.
-2 X 40MM rear, 2 x 40MM HDD, 1 x 120MM side panel. (Note: 2x40mm fans can and often do equal the CFM of a regular 80mm fan).
-CPU venting, side panel. Rear exhaust vent holes. Built-in HDD cooling tray.
-2 USB 2.0, 1 firewire, 1 set audio/microphone/line-in jacks. Located on side panel. This custom, all-clear cable assembly is not included.
-Quiet PC compatible.
-6 1/4" wide x 14 1/4" high x 18" long.
-SHIPPING BOX DETAILS: 11" wide x 20" high x 20" long. Packaged profusely with styrofoam peanuts in a super tough, double-walled cardboard box. Sealed with tamper-proof security tape. Each case ships individually plastic wrapped and is rigorously subjected to inspection prior to delivery.
The case comes extremely well packed. It is surrounded by bubble wrap to keep it from being scratched or punctured. This is excellent. Another important thing to note is that the USB/Firewire/Audio cables inside are secured so that they will not scratch the inside of the acrylic. Way to think ahead!
Fyi, bubble wrap keeps kids occupied so that you can proceed with your inspection of the case. :)
