Do you keep your PC tower on your desk? No? Neither do I and I don't think there are too many people that do anymore, mostly because these big boxes take up so much space. We put them under our desks, but that's hardly elegant. A far more stylish and, dare I say, minimalist approach could be the new Cryorig Taku, a monitor stand PC case built by the fine folks at Lian Li.
Lian Li is no stranger to thinking outside the box. Remember that they're the ones responsible for the series of desk PCs. With the Taku, you get a slim and flat full ITX PC that serves double duty as a monitor stand. Just plop your monitor on top and you've got yourself a workstation worthy of the IKEA catalog.
First showcased as a concept at last year's Computex, the Cryorig Taku is now being put into production... so long as they get the funding from the crowd they desire. Among some of the quick highlights include a easy pull-out system tray, space for GPUs up to 280mm, ITX motherboards, and multiple spots for HDDs and SSDs. The space underneath will accommodate a full size keyboard too.
Find more information on the Kickstarter page where a Cryorig Taku can be yours for a pledge of at least $250. They've set a funding goal of $100,000 with the end date set for July 27. They're expecting to start shipping these to customers in September. More pics and the full press release below.
