Regner has introduced a new PC case (“INDIVIDUAL”) that has huge radiators built into each side panel. They are made with anti-corrosion materials and are connected to an EKWB EK-Loop DDC 4.2 PWM pump. It has 3x be quiet! Silent Wings 3 140 mm fans (two in the front, one for exhaust). The case supports up to E-ATX motherboards and graphics cards up to 13.385 inches in length. At roughly 46 pounds, the case is not light, and it is priced at 1,900 Euros (~$1,986.49). Other features include 1x USB 3.0 and 1x USB-C ports, and LED lighting in the front. Overclocker der8auer reviewed the case on his channel and explained that the high price is due to the case and parts being manufactured in Germany.

Simple design and modular structure – the Cooling System INDIVIDUAL is an excellently equipped high-tech case with integrated water cooling and a real eye-catcher! 

The high-quality aluminum construction with huge aluminum radio gates combines stylish aesthetics and practical features. The fan speed and the cooling capacity can be controlled dynamically and optimally adapted to the requirements. The airflow is improved and excellent heat dissipation is guaranteed by specially designed ventilation channels including removable radiators.

  1. I like this concept. Thos massive radiators ought to provide some great cooling.

    That said, the pricing is in nutso territory.

    For that price I can build a system cooled with an acquarium water chiller and run slightly subambient (but above the dew point) and still have about $1000 left over.

    Edit:
    Also, the radiators are aluminum, so that's going to pout a damper on things. Can't use them with copper blocks, or you'll have galvanic corrosion due to dissimilar metals (they can write "anti-corrosion" all they want, that's not how it works) so you'll be stuck with aluminum water blocks, which is a bummer.

    The more I read into the details, the less this looks like a good solution.

    He did say they were hard coat anodized. If that's the case, it shouldn't corrode very easily. That's essentially what the milspec coating of 7075 T6 aluminum in AR-15 receivers is. I can attest to that being pretty resistant to corrosion.

    On the other hand, I don't have that much in my cooling solution which includes two 360mm radiators, 7x Lian-Li Unifans, all the fittings, tubing, distro plate, EK Quantum squared CPU block, and a custom block for my GPU. I'm also not convinced this will cool all that well being passive. Then again, you do have a great deal of surface area.

    We will see I guess.
  3. As a 1st run I doubt it'll go far but kudos to them for trying something new. Hopefully, it gets case manufacturers to start working on some ideas of their own. At some point, somebody has to come up with something that's impressive and cost-effective.

    You know, I didn't even notice it was passive. Shame on me for not studying it closer before commenting. I presumed some case fans drew some air over it. I'm sure one could mod it with some large quiet low speed fans to up the performance drastically, but I am already over this thing now.

    It's certainly a very interesting concept, and quite different from what we usually see. Will be interesting if other case manufacturers run with this idea and improve upon it.
