Enermax boasts a new Mid-tower PC chassis developed specifically for inveterate gamers. Codenamed Fulmo ST ECA3270, this chassis is ready to welcome the motherboards of ATX or micro-ATX form-factor, along with eight expansion slots.

At a price of 90 $, IconBIT IS308 offers the buyer an autonomous Torrent-downloader, a network drive, support for protocols Samba and FTP, gigabit network interface and USB 3.0 port.

The device has stylish black aluminium hull and comes with a stand for vertical installation. IconBIT iS308 looks more like a normal external hard drive rather than the NAS.
