Colorful today releases its first mini-ITX Barebone for gaming, named the Desert Eagle. The Barebones is made up of an ITX chassis, an ITX motherboard, a Low profile graphics card and a Flex-ATX PSU.
For the ITX chassis of the Barebones, Colorful uses an all aluminum alloy structure. The dimensions of the chassis are 228 by 262 by110mm, and it has a weight of 3.7kg. One of the side panels uses a hollow design, and the other side panel provides docking for two 2.5-inch bays. The internals of the Desert eagle use the reverse extended design (RTX), so both the motherboard and graphics card need to reverse installed, the CPU is at the bottom of the case while the graphics card is at the top. Due to the mesh at the top of the case the graphics card will be able to intake and exhaust cool air.
The system comes with the Colorful i-H67HD U3 ITX motherboard and the ‘Desert Eagle’ supports Intel Core i7/Core i5/Core i3 LGA-1155 processors. The motherboard adopts the Intel H67 chipset, and contains solid-state and Tantalum capacitors. The Colorful i-H67HD U3 has two SATA II ports and two SATA III ports onboard whilst also providing two USB 3.0 ports and two dual-channel DDR3 slots which support up to 16GB of total memory.
The desert eagle equips a custom Colorfire HD6750 graphics card to ensure the 3D performance required for gaming. The Colorfire HD6750 is using Low Profile design with twin fan cooler, and it runs at 700MHz/4000MHz of Core/Memory. The graphics card provides two display outputs, one is dual-link DVI port and the other is a standard HDMI port.
There is a built in 250W Flex-ATX power supply which has a peak power output of 300W. The unit provides enough power for both the popular LGA-1155 processors and Colorfire HD6750 graphics card. In addition, the PSU has 80Plus Bronze Certification.
Colorful are yet to announce official pricing for the product yet. The kit includes a power supply, case, motherboard and graphics card. Everything else must be purchased separately.
