What is the C1 Case?

The C1 Case is a computer case, designed for gamers and hardware enthusiasts, that saves desk space and is easly transported by mounting a monitor and utilising a carry handle, giving you more room to work and game, and letting you bring your rig to events with ease.

The case has features for cable management: the motherboard IO points downward to allow all cables to be tidily routed underneath the case. The motherboard is also raised off the back of the case to allow cables to be put underneath it for cable management.

  • Many people use their monitor VESA mount in order to attach it to an arm, but what about screwing in a case instead? Marketed as an easily manageable and upgradable all-in-one type solution, even a case carry handle is included in order to help you transport your whole system around the office, to LAN parties or to a friends place.

  • An Irish startup company called Crono Labs has launched an Indiegogo campaign to create the C1 computer case. The C1 can have a VESA compliant monitor attached to it, creating a DIY all-in-one system with the ultimate goal of decluttering your desk. The big advantage over typical all-in-ones is that the C1 actually has space for full-size components, including big graphics cards.
    The Indiegogo campaign is looking for $2,000, which will be used to produce prototypes for testing as well as sending out to hardware reviewers. Any additional money raised will be going towards marketing and further design iterations. If the campaign is successful, a follow up campaign will be set up to do a production run of around 1,000 more cases.

  • Crono Labs of Galway, Ireland is a startup that hopes to “declutter your desk” with their C1 Computer Case, a unique enclosure that allows you to mount a VESA compliant monitor to the case itself, creating your own all-in-one system. The idea of creating a portable all-in-one type system is appealing for the space-constrained or for LAN gaming, and the ability to use full-sized components would allow for a more powerful, and lower cost, build.
