Is XFX Getting Into Case Design?

XFX may be looking to expand beyond graphics cards and power supplies.

CeBIT, the world's leading high-tech event, officially kicked off today in Hanover, Germany, and we're already seeing some interesting developments emerge from the convention. One of them is an aluminum computer case from none other than XFX Force , a company most people associate with graphics cards, power supplies, and an assortment of accessories. Lo and behold, it looks like XFX is interested in adding case design to its resume.

The folks at Fudzilla spotted what it describes as a beta version of an aluminum chassis. A shot of the exterior shows a ventilated front panel with an XFX logo on the bottom, along with more ventilation on the side panel.

An angled shot of the inside reveals an all-black interior with plenty of cable cutouts, eight drive bays, and three optical drive bays that appear to be tool-less. There are four rubberized cutouts on the rear for watercooling tubes.

It's not clear if XFX is planning to bring this case to market or if it's simply gauging interest.
