Azza’s Pyramid Chassis: The Up-Side Down Case, But Also a Table?by Ian Cutress on June 6, 2019 12:00 PM EST

The average PC case is fairly non-descript, often purchased based on whatever cost is left in the build. There might be a tempered glass panel, or some noise dampening, and there might even be some RGB, if you are so inclined. Azza thinks you want something different, so enter the Pyramid case: a square based pyramid that can also double as a table.
When upright, the transparent windows on each side allow users to peer in to the components inside. There are small gaps for airflow to be driven up from the bottom, but the idea is that the user can cart their PC off to events and then blind everyone with something RGB and shiny. As shown in our images, there’s room in there for a good sized graphics card, plenty of storage, a power supply, and this ends up being a great use case for those RGB SSDs you invested in. The front panel ports are on the sides at the bottom.
Now enter table mode: if you purchase the $60 extra stand that Azza will offer, then the case can be installed upside down. As long as everything is screwed in, this interesting addition will allow users to make the PC become part of the furniture. The top of the case in this orientation seems to be tempered glass (I’m not sure if Azza will supply this as well), and assuming a user can rearrange the cables to look half decent, we have another table PC. With lots of RGB.
Azza expects its Pyramid to be available later this year. We saw a number of builds with this case at Computex, however the company is yet to enable a product page on its website.

Rocket321 - Thursday, June 6, 2019 - linkBuilt for people who spend lots of time at trade shows and no time talking to consumers.

Does that make it a "deskbeneath" system? Rolls right off the tongue!
GreenReaper - Thursday, June 6, 2019 - linkNot sure about the thermals, either. On the bright side: it'll keep your pizza warm.
PeachNCream - Thursday, June 6, 2019 - linkWould not recommend as a desk. Think of the crotch impaling potential of that pointy thing at the bottom. It'd also be awkward to wrap your legs around it and then explain to your boyfriend that you're not infatuated with your computer and enjoy spending time with it more than him because it does what you want it to do most of the time and isn't an emo-drama queen that demands constant attention and ego stroking over his automobile/tools/muscles/sports team.
kaidenshi - Friday, June 7, 2019 - linkThat's oddly specific. You ok?
FullmetalTitan - Friday, June 7, 2019 - linkHe has permanent damage from constantly working himself into a frenzy over his hate of RGB components. You learn to ignore his posts eventually
Gunbuster - Friday, June 7, 2019 - linkIt's all fun and games until someone spills a drink on your $3000 coffee table PC...
qhd - Friday, June 7, 2019 - linkOnly $60 for the stand? It looks sturdy and well-made, worth more than $60. I guess I've read too much Apple news in the past week.
