For PC DIY enthusiasts who like to toss around various hardware, the open chassis/test platform has the advantage of quite a convenient experience. However, Nagao Industry Inc.’s newly launched N-Frame-OP01 brings another display bracket-based mounting option to consumers. If you want to get an all-in-one computing solution, the N-Frame-OP01, which supports standard VESA holes (75×75 / 100×100 mm), maybe a good choice.
The open chassis / test bench allows users to easily remove and install various accessories without having to frequently remove side panels or other obstructions. In addition, the open chassis has a unique advantage when it comes to heat dissipation.
However, if you are concerned about dust accumulation after prolonged use, radiator (fan/water-cooling pump) noise, or the environment is more sensitive to electromagnetic radiation, then it is more appropriate to have a traditional chassis with optimized air duct design.
In addition, in the process of using open cases, you must also pay attention to the discharge of static electricity (while avoiding drinks and other items that can easily be knocked over), so as not to directly damage the sophisticated computer hardware.
From the official photos shared by Nagao Productions, the “complete” N-FRAME-OP01 open chassis is still quite compact in terms of desktop space.
