The ELITE SHARK CA700 has just arrived as Sharkoon's latest and most ambitious PC case to date. This open-frame PC case can accommodate up to eight RGB fans and a water-cooling system with two 360 mm radiators and includes five 120 mm RGB LED PWM fans, all for a manufacturer's suggested price of 399 Euros (roughly US$469).

Sharkoon is back with a new addition to its ELITE SHARK series of computer cases, namely the CA700. Its first open-frame PC case, the CA700 sports a futuristic design and a cleverly designed interior. In addition to the extensive modification options, the Sharkoon ELITE SHARK CA700 can accommodate up to eight fans and two 360 mm radiators out of the box.

In addition to the five pre-installed, fully addressable 120 mm PWM fans, this case also comes with a water pump holder, a vertical graphics card kit, as well as a tempered glass side panel, and, obviously, a cable management system designed to make everything look good.

The addressable RGB lighting system supports 20 manual lighting modes and is fully compatible with the following control technologies: MSI Mystic Light Sync, ASUS Aura Sync, Gigabyte RGB Fusion Ready, and ASRock Polychrome Sync.

The maximum length of the graphic cards that can be installed inside the Sharkoon ELITE SHARK CA700 can go up to 475 mm, the CPU coolers supported have a height of up to 165 mm, and the power supply can go up to 195 mm. When it comes to storage, this case can handle up to six 2.5-inch or up to two 3.5-inch drives.

The Sharkoon ELITE SHARK CA700 doesn't come cheap, as its manufacturer suggested price is 399 Euros (roughly US$469). The case can be already ordered via the many online and offline retailers that have Sharkoon products in their portfolio.

Open-Frame Case for PC Enthusiasts


Pohlheim, 26 August 2021 – Sharkoon Technologies is an international supplier of high-performance, quality PC components and peripherals. With the CA700 from the ELITE SHARK series, Sharkoon now presents its first open-frame PC case. Apart from the futuristic design, it should also impress with its cleverly designed interior. This provides room for up to eight fans and allows the simultaneous operation of two 360-millimeter radiators. In addition, the case offers extensive modification options: It can, for example, be tilted and locked in up to four positions via its base.


High-Quality Open-Frame Design

Five pre-installed, fully addressable PWM fans, with a diameter of 120 millimeters, and a case design which is open on all sides should all ensure the ideal cooling, even with power-hungry hardware. However, if anyone wants the case to be both water-cooled and even more eye-catching, then the spacious interior offers a particularly creative solution: For future-proof heat dissipation, a 360-millimeter radiator can be installed in the top of the case, and, at the same time, another 360-millimeter radiator can be operated next to the mainboard tray.


Extravagant - Inside and Outside

So that the presentation of the built-in hardware can be just as extravagant as the PC case itself, the CA700 comes with two mounting frames to vertically install a graphics card: one mounting frame for cards that require two slots and another for cards that require three slots. The manufacturer has also included the necessary riser cable in the case's package contents. The large side panel made of tempered glass allows the graphics card as well as the built-in fans or other illuminated elements to come into their own.


Practical and Convenient Features

In addition to its most conspicuous highlights, the ELITE SHARK CA700 offers many other smaller features which provide ease and convenience for creative hardware installation. Thus, for proper cable management, the case has several cable pass-throughs, and hook-and-loop cable ties are also supplied. And for additional flexibility, the water-cooling pump or the reservoir can be attached in one of two positions. For safe and easy handling, the tempered glass side panel is supported with a mounting bracket, and the front and top of the case have practical panels that can be easily opened and locked into position when necessary. According to personal taste, the body of the CA700 can be tilted and locked at four different angles via its base.


Lots of Space for Large Components

With dimensions of 63.2 x 25.0 x 67.0 centimeters, the ELITE SHARK CA700 is also the largest Sharkoon PC case to date and should thus offer a correspondingly large amount of space for the biggest components. For example, the maximum length of the graphics card is 47.5 centimeters, the maximum length of the power supply is 19.5 centimeters and the maximum height of the CPU cooler is 16.5 centimeters. In addition, there is room for six 2.5-inch SSDs and two 3.5-inch HDDs.


Price and availability.

The ELITE SHARK CA700 is now available at the manufacturer's suggested price of 399 euros.
