Computex 2013: Huntkey showcases micro-ATX All-In-One Chassisby Ian Cutress on June 8, 2013 2:18 AM EST

A lot of companies are dealing with the All-in-one concept. One side of the global business is dealing with the manufacturing, and then the other side is marketing, distributing and actually selling. Out of the all-in-one market, there is a push from various manufacturers for DIY all in ones – you buy the chassis with the panel and power supply, and then fit your own motherboard, CPU and memory (the CPU cooler is often part of the chassis or a small heatsink/fan). This is essentially what Thin Mini-ITX was designed for. Though now users wishing for more motherboard choices have Huntkey to turn to for a micro-ATX chassis solution. This possibly expands the market in terms of less restrictive motherboard requirements.
With a 1920x1080 21.5” CMO (Chi Mei Optoelectronics) A+ panel that has to be removed with a suction cup (should be included with the panel), the chassis will come with a 150W Bronze power supply and the CPU cooler:
No word on what markets Huntkey are going to focus on, or whether this is an OEM project, but I would imagine China would be the initial market, with others to follow.

pichemanu - Saturday, June 8, 2013 - linkWow 150 W! So generous!
K_Space - Saturday, June 8, 2013 - linkShould be more than adequate to handle Kaveri or upcoming Haswell i3. I am not sure about the thermals for anything more than that.
What about CPU fans that meet the ITX requirements like the Noctua NH-L9, can they be fitted in?!
DanNeely - Saturday, June 8, 2013 - linkit's an IGP only system. 150W is plenty.
Mentawl - Sunday, June 9, 2013 - linkWhy would you need more?
flyingpants1 - Sunday, June 9, 2013 - linkCool. Call me when it's 23-24" and has support for 4770k, GTX680 and 4TB HDD.
Mentawl - Sunday, June 9, 2013 - linkWould you also like a flying unicorn with that?
You can't have everything in an all-in-one.
flyingpants1 - Sunday, June 9, 2013 - linkYes, you can. Do you see how much empty space there is inside that thing?
Gigabyte actually made one that supports a 200W GPU, it's just really huge and expensive.
And you can look at http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1588463 for an example of someone who has created their own "slim ITX" case from scratch.
The components for a high-end gaming PC all easily fit on the back of a 23" monitor. Requires mini-ITX and a small Silverstone 450W SFX12V PSU (or 1U, or custom form factor) to handle the GPU, but you are not space limited. Not even by a 12" graphics card. So then it's just a matter of making a custom case that has an LCD panel mounted inside, like the one in this article. Then adding slim (15mm thick) 140mm fans that ramp up when the system is under load.
There's no reason we can't have an slim AIO that supports a dGPU and eventually a 200W dGPU.
