Claritas 260M compact digital media server enclosure

incredibly compact depth The 260M is designed to accomodate the more compact microATX motherboard with full height PC cards. A standard format microATX PSU is employed (not supplied). We recommend either Seasonic power supplies which are rated up to 300w or the SilenX 320 / 350 or 400w microATX supplies both types are very quiet with a slight preference to the Seasonic range under extreme load. All this in an enclosure measuring only 260mm deep. The 260M makes for an ideal 'client' based digital media machine. These higher power supplies and developments in 'heatpipe' technology for cooling the CPU and GPU by linking the processors with the enclosure chassis directly has meant this enclosure can now be used for more serious Media server systems. The design of the Claritas can even be used for Audio Power amplifiers with 'Tee-slots' engineered into the inside of the side extrusions to allow for 'power amplifier boards' to be bolted directly to the mass of the case for maximum heat dissipation. A Microsoft Media remote control receiver can be adapted for internal mounting inside the enclosure whilst the dark blue drawer cover is IR transparent to allow the remote control to work.
