ASUS Prime AP201 in review
Ventilated Micro-ATX Case with Style
Innovative Micro-ATX cases are rare. ASUS model Prime AP201 is even more exciting: despite its compact dimensions, it promises flexibility and gives hope for effective cooling, thanks to a lot of mesh.
So far, ASUS has mainly attracted attention with gaming cases. Meditation also literally means – because the habitats are like this ASUS ROG Strix Helios are anything but inconspicuous. However, the Prime AP201 isn’t a ROG or TUF model and is actually so discreet in appearance that it’s by no means only interesting to gamers.
It is also suitable for more powerful gaming systems. The mini tower should be able to accommodate graphics cards up to 33.8 cm tall and CPU coolers up to 17 cm tall. And water cooling can also be used with AiO or 360mm radiator.
ASUS Prime AP201 is introduced around 91 euro and optionally in black or white.
