CyberpowerPC has announced a new family of PC cases that boast a one-of-a-kind feature to help keep temperatures in check.

Dubbed the Kinetic Series, the cases in the lineup feature nearly 20 vents that automatically open and close depending on how hot the system is running. CyberpowerPC has shared a video that shows the concept in action with one of the models, which features an eye-catching white and gold design.

“First up is, perhaps the project we are most excited to reveal, our Kinetic Series chassis: a case inspired by Kinetic architecture that dynamically adjusts 18 individual vents that open and close according to the internal temperature and cooling needs of your system,” wrote CyberPowerPC. “Our hope is that this design can create an effervescence of creativity throughout the industry that fundamentally changes our way of thinking about design.”

CyberpowerPC’s new Kinetic family was teased on its CES landing page, which can be found here. The company also showcased a handful of other cases that include the M series with sleek aesthetics and a patent-pending Venti airflow system.

  1. Looks kind of cool, but why is it necessary? I don’t think it accomplishes much of anything, and just adds more moving parts, and moving parts create opportunities for failure.

    Theorizing, it might be a means of increasing airflow while keeping noise down. Restrictions increase noise, of course, so this might be a means to address the increased noise at higher fan speeds.

    Which is my sentiment to a tee. Even if there is a demonstrable improvement in one or more metrics, CyberPowerPC will be hard pressed to make a case for increasing cost and introducing more points of potential failure.

  3. Kind of cool but totally impractical.
    I mean what’s the easiest way to reduce air flow? Reduce fan speed which also reduces noise. Reducing opening size speeds up the air, which increases noise. And instead of just fan noise now you have servo noise, that is not even a constant like fan noise, which is easy to get used to.

    I’d want one for the looks, but I’d probably end up hating it.

  4. I think the idea of a kinetic case is pretty cool. That said, I can’t think of a single practical use for it, other than it could look neat.
