When rack space is tight, the CS785 chassis is the solution. At only 13″ deep and 16.8″ wide, it is ideal for short racks, mobile enclosures, desktops, and media shelves. Its sleek and simple design fits well with other gear, and is well-suited for home theater, media servers, and video surveillance systems. Supporting all the latest Intel® multi-core processors, the General Technics CS785 chassis packs incredible power into a compact case.

Compact and Quiet

Though only 1.5U high (2.63″), this chassis supports a microATX system board, and up to three full-height cards. A modular card extender system lets you choose any combination of PCI-32 or PCI Express x1 through x16 cards. It has plenty of room for storage with two 3.5″ hard drive bays, as well as up to three 2.5″ hard drive bays. The system is cooled with two quiet 60mm fans directing airflow towards the critical system components. Exhaust and inlet vents maintain a flow of cool air over and through the hard drives, CPU, and memory. This quiet and efficient cooling keeps noise to a minimum, enabling your media applications to run both quickly and quietly.

Adaptable IO

On the front panel is a blue LED pushbutton and power indicator, two USB 2.0 ports, and a slimline optical drive bay. A large, removable panel allows silkscreen artwork or custom front panel IO. On the rear panel are three PCI brackets for add-on cards or additional IO, as well as two D-sub cutouts for serial or VGA size connectors. When space is limited, a compact system using the CS785 chassis can enable limitless possibilities
