Inter-Tech IT-8816 POLLUX – Simple Midi-Tower with USB Type-C on the front

Inter-Tech Elektronik Handels GmbH is a company based in Germany and was founded in 1996. Since then the main focus is on a Europe-wide distribution of OEM and retail hardware for PC systems. Originally, the portfolio mainly consisted of PC cases and power supplies. But in the meantime it has been extended by numerous divisions (fans, peripherals, hard disk enclosures, etc.). In October 2020, Inter-Tech introduced numerous new cases for the narrow wallet. These include the IT-8816 POLLUX.

Behind this cryptic name is a very simple midi tower with a focus on low price and solid hardware compatibility. As an additional feature, there is also a USB 3.0 type-C connection in the front and space for up to three external 5.25″ drives. How the Inter-Tech IT-8816 POLLUX performs, you can read in this review.

Scope of delivery

The packaging of the IT-8816 POLLUX corresponds to the estimated purchase price. The box is plain brown and has been printed with a schematic drawing of the case and numerous technical data. Inside the box, the IT-8816 is wrapped in normal polystyrene and a thin plastic film. Due to the low weight of the tower this should be sufficient to prevent damage. The supplied accessories are in a plastic bag and were fixed inside with a cable tie. All necessary screws to install the components and a mainboard speaker are included. An assembly instruction is unfortunately not enclosed with the case.
