A Solid Jonsbo U1 PLUS Gaming ITX PC Case Makes a Real Difference

Gaming Mini-ITX PC Cases are becoming more and more popular from day to day. At present, among them we can distinguish the latest U1 PLUS model from Jonsbo, which is notable for its inner space optimization.



This framework weighs only 2.77 kg, and its 170 × 220 × 320 mm dimensions allow to install graphics cards up to 195 mm long and CPU coolers up to 133 mm high. The SFX format power supply units can be utilized with this product. There’s also a potential for embedding two 2.5” drives and an M.2 storage device. In the lower part of the chassis one can find enough room to mount a 80 mm fan for additional cooling and a dust filter.

The novelty is designed in two colour variants – black and silver, so users can choose any to their liking. Shockproof legs advantageously contribute to the exterior.
