TUREMETAL : new major player ?

Chinese brand TUREMETAL launches the UP2, a Thin mini-ITX fanless chassis for CPUs up to 55W TDP.

Offering a fresh perspective on fanless cases, the UP2 features a semi-open frame (no IO shield is required), an ingenious third cooling panel, a small footprint (220 x 220 x 50 mm), and for the very first time, 8 mm heat pipes.

The UP2 is available right now on China's Taobao from about $100. But more importantly, TUREMETAL will reveal in September and October, at least two other fanless cases, the UP9 for CPUs up to 95W, and the UP10 (that could be a tower) for CPUs / GPUs up to 140W TDP. We'll keep you posted.
