Kinetic Series Case: Review Roundup

If you have been keeping up with the buzz surrounding CES 2022, you most likely have seen our latest case design, the Kinetic Series. The inspiration behind this case’s unique design was Kinetic Architecture, the concept through which buildings are designed to allow parts of their structure to move, not just for the sake of the design, but with a purpose in mind. As such, the case features 18 individually controlled vents that open and close, according to the systems current temperatures.

Currently the case is planned to launch in the 3rd quarter of this year. We’ve loved seeing and hearing the publics and critics reactions, positive and negative, to what we think is a welcome change to the current PC chassis market. We’ve put together this article with the goal of providing a central location for you to see what various tech reviewers are saying about the Kinetic Series. We’re so excited to see the buzz surrounding the Kinetic Series, and we are also grateful for all of the feedback, critiques, and comments that people are telling us about the case. With this feedback in mind, we are excited to continue improving the Kinetic Series as we head towards it’s launch later this year.

“I am not sure who, if anyone, was asking for the ability to turn their airflow down, but, that doesn’t matter! What matters is that this thing looks like a mechanical eldritch horror that will eat your hand if you stick it in there. And that my friends, is what the CES Season is all about.” – Linus sebastian

“But on this last point, we must admit that Kinetic boxes are certainly the most original that we have been able to discover for a very long time. They are trimmed with a triangular pattern which gives them quite an interesting texture. The real surprise, on the other hand, is hidden at the level of the front facade; here, this surface pattern gives way to a tangle of small articulated triangular panels.”

CyberPowerPC has just unveiled their Kinetic Series Chassis, an eye-catching PC case inspired by kinetic architecture, and made up of 108 triangular panels that form 18 moving, individually controlled vents.

“I love this uncalled-for new PC case with expanding and contracting vents that react to the machine’s ambient internal temperature. The Kinetic Series case comes from CyberPowerPC, which swears that it didn’t stick irises of Deus Ex triangles on a PC just because it looks cool. In fact, it’s not even supposed to look cool. “

“I’m a sucker for RGB fans in my PC, but CyberPowerPC’s new PC case goes one step further to turn a typical tower into a breathing computer.

“CyberPowerPC may be a brand you’re familiar with for putting together custom desktops that are ready to go, but the company is working on some interesting chassis ideas for PC builders. A new development, codenamed KINETIC, allows a prototype case to adjust ventilation on the front panel, depending on the requirements of the system cooling at that time.”

Input Magazine
“Pretty much all the popular computer cases these days follow the same blocky design formula of clear side panels, mesh front panels and maybe some cool LED strips. There are exceptions like Teenage Engineering’s computer-1, but they’re far from mainstream (or budget-friendly). CyberPowerPC didn’t stray too far from the tried-and-true design, but they revamped the front panel with form and function in mind.”

CES 2022 is fully under way in Las Vegas, even as many companies cancelled on-site presentations this year due to the pandemic.

“To say that PCs have come a long way in their evolution would be the understatement of the century. It seems that not a week can pass without a tech giant unveiling a new innovation for one of its computers. Thankfully, due to CES, we’re being treated with a salvo of groundbreaking PCs from companies throughout the space. While they all come in different shapes, sizes, and colors, one of the PCs that really caught our attention was CyberPowerPC’s Kinetic Series Case.”

PCMag
“Dust is no friend to your desktop PC, but neither are overheating innards. Proper ventilation is a must if you want to avoid the latter, and CyberPower PC has found a unique way of letting massive amounts of air flow through one of its cases without just poking it full of holes. At the same time, it has turned it into a funky, vaguely menacing work of PC chassis art.”
