PC cases and accessories specialist Azza is up to its ‘extreme’ PC tricks again. Its latest eye-catching chassis takes the high-octane world of supercars as its inspiration. The new chassis, due to be released this April, is called the Octane, and looks something like a v6 car engine with gull wings component access doors, and plenty of RGB lighting options.

As well as looking like something bestowing great horsepower, the Azza Octane has plenty of room for top-notch PC components and lashings of cooling components. It is described as an ‘E-ATX wide enclosure’ and measures a pretty substantial 440 mm x 570 mm x 590 mm, weighing in at 15kg unpopulated. It is made of a combo of 2mm SPCC and 3mm aluminium with the gull-wings being made of both aluminium and tempered glass.

With such a size, it is natural that this chassis has (mostly) good max compatibility figures, and they are as follows:

  • Max CPU Cooler Height: 80mm
  • Max GPU Length: 400mm long video card (Horizontal)
  • Max Cooling Tube Reservoir Length: 300mm
  • Max storage: 2x 3.5- and 4x 2.5-inch drives
  • Fan locations: 1x 200mm fan port in the front, 6x 120 mm / 4x 140mm fan ports on the top (brackets), 6x 120mm fan ports on the sides
  • Power Supply: ATX
  • Motherboard Compatibility:
  • Expansion slots: 3 + 3

Interestingly, you can choose to install your graphics card in either side – under either left or right wing. The layout even gives you the option of double 280 or 360mm radiators or double graphics cards at either extreme – as well as a separate top mount 280 or 360mm radiator. As an open air chassis you shouldn’t have much trouble with air flow and at the front sits the Azza-supplied 200mm aRGB fan. C8Ac8D78 37D4 4549 Aec2 D0F4297A20A2

On the topic of RGB there is an onboard Azza controller with 7×3 pin aRGB ports, 6×4 pin PWM fan ports, a reset and LED switch, as well as the necessary cables to get power and connect to your motherboard. 300 mm PCI-E 3.0 cable (support EATX、ATX Motherboard) is supplied.

Beneath the front fan is a selection of easy to access I/O including: Reset / LED / HD Audio / USB3.0 x3 / Type-C x1.

Azza says the Overdrive will become available in April but hasn’t provided any price guidance.
