The DA2 is a compact ITX case designed to strike a balance between size and compatibility, allowing for high performance components to fit comfortably in a small form factor space.
What truly sets the DA2 apart from other SFF cases is its unique approach to mounting components. It utilizes a rail and bracket system that makes it incredibly versatile, greatly improving the range of hardware and type of systems it can be used for.
Cooling performance was another critical consideration throughout the design process, not only will the DA2 support 145mm tall air coolers or a 280mm radiator, it provides excellent airflow for them to run at maximum efficiency and minimal noise.
Version 2 of the DA2 features the same great design and modularity but with refined venting hole patterns on the back and side panels that greatly improve the airflow potential.
For a full breakdown of all the changes, please see the press release.
The original DA2 (now known as the V1) launched in 2018 has been superseded by the V2. The DA2 product page can still be found here
No doubt the oblong rectangular box is the most space efficient shape for components, but wouldn’t it be nice to sacrifice some space for style?
We think yes, and the characteristic openings at the top and bottom of the case serve as additional airflow surfaces whilst maintaining a minimalist clean exterior panel that is easy to clean.
