The DB4 is a design masterpiece featuring a bi-symmetrical design that blurs the lines between technology and art. Every element of this case subtly screams premium, from the 13mm thick extruded aluminium side panels to the precision CNC’d internal frame, all perfectly blended together with our characteristically understated design tone.
Key to its design are the identical sides of the case which serve both as the striking monolithic exterior and the convection surface (or heat sink) for component cooling and is the basis of its fanless operation.
Motherboard compatibility has been addressed, the DB4 solves one of the biggest complexities of building a fanless case. With both the motherboard and side panels being parallel, the heat pipes run perpendicular, away from any components and in combination with the flexibility of the universal bracket, means that virtually all ITX motherboard are compatible with the case.
Our existing CPU mount has also been re-engineered to be adjustable and universally compatible with any socket. It now features a copper shim interface between the IHS and heat pipes which creates a more efficient all copper thermal path to the heat sink, greatly improving cooling performance.
To make assembly easier, all the side panels are removable, as is the motherboard tray, leaving an open frame with plenty of accessibility. Building on the innovation of our F12C, components are fitted using a universal bracket system that supports, drives, heat sink mounts and the ZF240, allowing components to be mounted anywhere along the frame of the case, delivering a truly modular and flexible layout.
The DB4 measures 260 x 260 x 270mm but still manages to accommodate an ITX motherboard, a dual-slot full-height PCI card (max 200mm length, 110mm height), up to 5 x 3.5” or 12 x 2.5” drives (lots of combinations in between), and can be powered by our Nano or ZeroFlex PSU solutions.
A ENTIRELY DIFFERENT CLASS OF CONSTRUCTION
When assembled, the inner frame is completely hidden by the outer panels, but that doesn’t mean any less care or quality was spared for its construction.
Fabricated entirely from aluminium with no single part less than 4mm, the high grade frame is in itself a beautiful piece of engineering and makes working within the DB4 a breeze thanks to the 360 degree open access.
The symmetrical design and bottom placement of all ports means the DB4 looks stunning from every angle. Available in three colours, the classic two tone silver with black upper and lower panels, the sleek all black or the recently introduced middle ground titanium colour, all make an ultra sleek and sophisticated PC experience.
INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO CPU AND GPU COOLING
Fanless cases are nothing new and in principle they all employ the same method of cooling, a heat sink large enough to dissipate the heat without forced convection. The DB4 also utilized this principle but features an adjustable and scalable heat pipe design coupled with a unique heat sink that was designed to not only perform but do so without having the typical industrial look
