Cryorig's Taku pictured and Mac Pro-inspired Ola represent the cooling company's first foray into PC case designs.

Cryorig is refreshingly honest about the inspiration for its Ola case, describing it in its official press release as 'a Mac Pro inspired cylindrical home theatre lifestyle ITX PC case' and claiming to have focused on performance and cooling.

Coolers of up to 82mm in height are also supported, providing the top is no larger than 92mm by 92mm, along with SFX power supplies up to 130mm in length

While the cylindrical design of Apple's Mac Pro hides a triangular layout of components nestled against a central heatsink, Cryorig's Ola is more traditional: accepting mini-ITX motherboards, the design includes individual components for the CPU, PSU, and GPU, side air intake ducts across the full height of the case, and a 140mm exhaust fan at the top - a layout claimed to be up to the job of housing high-power graphics cards and CPUs with up to a 100W thermal design profile TDP .

The case will also include modular front and back panels, available in a range of finishes including brushed aluminium and wood veneer.

The Ola is joined as a launch product by the Taku, which hearkens back to the early days of computing where desktop systems generally did sit on your desk and provide support for a monitor.

As this would prevent access to components if the case opened in a traditional manner, the Taku is designed with a sliding drawer which can be pulled from the front to provide easy access to all internal components, including graphics cards up to 250mm in length, up to two 2.5" or one 3.5" hard drives, and the SFX power supply.
