Gigabyte reveals a Lite AC300W.
Representing a toned-down variant of its Aorus AC300W chassis, the AC300W Lite is something to keep an eye out for. The main difference between the original and the Lite model is linked to the product’s VR-Link. As you might suspect, this new chassis doesn’t offer this functionality anymore, which might be a good thing or a bad thing depending on your own needs. Those of you who don’t use VR much won’t really be affected by its absence. The VR-Link was based on a dedicated HDMI port located on the front panel. This port plugged into the “VR-Link” internal HDMI ports of some Aorus branded graphics cards.
Any other differences between the standard and lite versions?
Well, the glowing Aorus logo is also absent on the AC300W Lite. Other than that, the specifications are largely the same. This means that the RGB LED-illuminated front panel Aorus logo is still included. Furthermore, you’ll also be able to leverage the GIGABYTE RGB Fusion software. The case’s horizontally-partitioned layout includes a top compartment large enough for graphics cards up to 40cm in length. CPU coolers up to 17 cm in height will also fit right in. The bottom compartment holds two 3.5-inch drive bays as well as a PSU bay. Moreover, two extra 2.5-inch drives can be installed behind the motherboard tray.
As far as ventilation goes, you will have three 120 mm or two 140 mm front intakes. There’s also a single 120mm rear exhaust complemented by two 140/120 mm top exhausts. No word on pricing for the Aorus AC300W Lite chassis just yet, but it should definitely be cheaper than the original.
