Kolink: Two new cases at one stroke

With the Kolink Rocket Heavy and the Stronghold Overseer the case experts of Kolink are launching two new products at once. They cover several interests at once. While the Rocket Heavy comes in Mini-ITX format, friends of ATX cases will enjoy the Stronghold Overseer.

Rocket Heavy

The similar name compared to Rockets is not by chance. This is the successor of the popular case. Kolink uses an aluminium front for the small case. Among other things, the openings in the form of honeycombs should provide enough air to breathe. On the right and left side Kolink uses high quality tempered glass, which allows a view into the inner workings of the case, while the Rocket Heavy accommodates a standard Mini-ITX system. Beside a SFX-L power supply you can install a processor cooler with a maximum height of 8,5 cm. Furthermore, a graphics card with a maximum length of 34 cm fits into the case.

The Rocket Heavy is primarily designed for targeted water cooling of the processor. For this reason there is a 240 mm radiator in the lid of the case. The only pre-installed case fan of the system has a diameter of 120 mm and is also located in the lid. The user himself can then optionally use the two 120 mm fan spaces in the lid or the 120 mm fan space in the side panel of the case. Here the fan sits directly next to the mainboard. In addition to two 2.5 inch drives, the Mini-ITX can be equipped with a further 3.5 inch drive.

Although the name would justify fears, the Rocket Heavy is anything but heavy. At just 4.75 kg, it can be easily transported at any time. The dimensions are also typically Mini-ITX not large. The small case measures 180 mm x 265 mm x 350 mm (W x H x D). The I/O-Panel, which Kolink added to the case, looks very practical. It offers a USB 3.2 type C connection as well as two USB 3.0 type A connections. Furthermore, there are two USB 2.0 ports (type A) and two 3.5 mm audio connections.

Stronghold Overseer

The Stronghold Overseer is much bigger than the small Mini-ITX case. With 215 mm x 460 mm x 415 mm (W x H x D) Kolink offers a real ATX system. The design is also very different from its small counterpart. So Kolink focuses on the optics of brushed aluminium. However, the apparent metal is plastic. The I/O panel can also convince here, but turns out a bit narrower than in the small Mini-ITX case. It offers two USB 3.0 ports and one USB 2.0 port, as well as two audio connections.

Inside Kolink does not make any experiments with the ATX case. The interior of the Stronghold Overseer is based on the well-proven two-chamber system. The case offers space for a CPU cooler with the maximum height of 175 mm. With the graphics card you can let off steam up to the maximum length of 34 cm. You can install a total of six fans (120 mm) in the Stronghold Overseer. Alternatively, one can also install three fans with a diameter of 140 mm. There are already two fans inside the case ex factory. Both on the front and on the back of the ATX case there is a 120 mm fan.

At the front of the system you can either install a radiator with 360 mm or a radiator with 280 mm. There is also space for a radiator under the lid. Here you also have the choice between two sizes (240 mm or 280 mm). Kolink has also provided enough space for the drive. So there are two combined drive places for 2.5 or 3.5 inch drives in the case. Additionally there are three drive places which are custom-made for 2.5 inch drives.

Prices and availability

The two cases are now available for pre-order from Caseking. The shipping of the two new additions is scheduled for August 20th. The Rocket Heavy is smaller, but has a higher price. So you have to pay a UVP of 119,90 for the Mini-ITX model. The ATX case Stronghold Overseer, on the other hand, costs 49.90 Euros.
