DLH21: a vertical ITX box at darkFlash!

If you like ITX boxes (our Sugo 14 test is available here

), darkFlash offers its DLH21. It is a compact reference with a sober design, but above all, it is vertical.

DLH21: a vertical ITX box!

darkFlash DLH21 So we start with the dimensions and about this, this model displays 175 (W) x 238.8 (D) x 412 (H) mm. For the moment, the weight is not specified, however, be aware that the brand uses 0.8 mm steel for the whole case. The different panels are perforated to allow the best possible ventilation of the configuration placed inside.

Of course, compatibility with motherboards will be limited to the mini-ITX, but that’s the point of the exercise. On the other hand, there will be little or no need to worry about the graphics card. The latter can measure up to 32 cm in length on 2 slots. On the ventirad side, we will be rather limited: 134 mm high at most. Moreover, we will also be able to install watercooling in 240 mm if necessary. Finally, as far as the power supply is concerned, we will have to make do with an SFX/SFX-L block.

You can see the graphic card vertically in the bottom of the case

If you want to improve the air flow, you can add fans. A first 92 mm slot will be available at the top. If we stay on aircooling, we can also add two 120 mm mills in front of the motherboard.

For the price, this model is available at Newegg (USA) starting at $190. The same goes for the colors, you can choose between black, white, pink and cyan. Colors that are off the beaten track, but not foreign to the brand in view of its catalog.

Here is the darkFlash datasheet !
