Fasten your seatbelt, turn on the engine in your DeLorean and get ready to dial in for the journey you are about to go on. 2003, Cooltek, high quality cases? Ring a bell? Of course it should as since they entered onto the European market, they have been building a high calibre, form factor plentiful catalogue and today we not only have their latest aluminium bespoke case, but it’s rather special to say the least. I am of course talking or “waffling on” about the new RM1 from Cooltek; this is actually marketed under the name “Jonsbo – Powered by Cooltek” in case you are getting confused.
Not only does the RM1 offer support for ATX, m-ATX and m-ITX motherboards, but it comes in a size which would put some “ITX” designed cases to shame in terms of size. Now the focus is clearly on saving space, utilising the small amount of space efficiently and of course, quality.
So can a “mini ATX tower” be a viable option for a regular system? Or does the Jonsbo RM1 scream server/HTPC system? I think we should find out, as the hardware we intend to fit inside of this to be not only of the highest quality, but should show the potential of this aluminium pocket rocket off tenfold! Before we dive into the review though and let’s get a grasp on the specifications; yes the dimensions are correct, we have double checked to make sure!
