The first of many ProArt chassis to come, the ProArt PA602 chassis from ASUS offers outstanding cooling straight out of the box. It offers excellent thermal performance thanks to a front panel made for maximum air intake, a thick 140 mm rear fan that comes pre-installed, two 200 mm front fans, and support for a 420 mm radiator. With a full suite of cutting-edge features, the ProArt PA602 is also intended to simplify the user’s PC building experience.
It comes equipped with a number of convenient features, such as automatic dust detection, an integrated PWM control on the front I/O panel power lock latch, and a generous array of readily accessible USB ports, making it ideal for everyday use. Furthermore, it’s all wrapped up in a modern, minimalist design that would look great in any creator’s workstation, studio, or set.
Amazing cooling capabilities
Users can enjoy the most optimal all-out cooling and discreet operation with the ProArt PA602 chassis. Its open-grille front panel, which has two pre-installed 200 mm ProArt front fans and broad 15.5 mm venting slots with 45% porosity, is where its cooling prowess begins. These characteristics allow air to flow freely inside the chassis. These fans provide customers an amazing balance of performance acoustics since they can move a similar volume of air much more silently than typical 120 mm or 140 mm case fans because they are significantly thicker.
With a wide 300-1000 rpm range and PWM control, these robust, large-bladed spinners with 38 mm thickness can produce amazingly high airflow while being remarkably silent. They have an airflow rating of up to 190.2 CFM, which is almost twice as much as standard 200 mm system fans. The ProArt PA602 chassis comes with a 140 mm fan that is pre-installed to aid with heat exhaustion. When conditions allow, the fan can be completely turned off for silent operation.
Two air deflectors located inside the chassis assist in directing cooling air to the areas that require it most. In order to minimize turbulence and provide excellent cooling for the CPU and power delivery circuitry, a long panel that runs the length of the motherboard tray softly nuzzles the airstream over the top edge of the motherboard. Additionally, the front edge of the PSU shroud is slanted to guide airflow toward the graphics card.
Building a PC that is creator-friendly using the ProArt PA602 chassis
The ProArt PA602 chassis goes above and beyond to make the process of creating a PC easier and more efficient. Initially, there is ample space in this PC box, even for bulky components. Motherboards up to 12 inches long and 10.9 inches broad can fit into this chassis. The PA602’s maximum CPU cooler height of 190 mm gives users the freedom to choose from nearly any available option if they desire a hefty tower cooler for their CPU. The top radiator can accommodate radiators up to 420 mm in diameter for extremely high-end cooling, for those who are thinking about liquid cooling.
Large datasets, high-resolution graphics, and finished projects might all require a lot of storage. Because of the ProArt PA602’s roomy interior, users have several possibilities for mounting a lot of disks. Users may easily set up a big and fast storage array with support for up to eight 2.5-inch SSDs, and the chassis features four drive bays that can also accommodate 3.5-inch HDDs.
In order to streamline the front panel I/O connection process, we have combined essential features into a single header. Lastly, the ProArt PA602 chassis reduces the amount of tools users need to assemble and maintain their PCs. One key is all it takes to unlock both side panels. Additionally, the ASUS-exclusive and patented method for installing PCIe add-in cards including graphics cards without a screwdriver makes made premiere with the PA602.
Beyond just making the assembly process simpler, the ProArt PA602 chassis has thoughtful features that improve the user’s daily experience with their PC. The front I/O panel has a ton of USB ports since creators frequently need to connect a wide range of peripherals and external storage devices to their workstations. The fastest USB 20 Gbps Type-C port tops the list; to maximize its usefulness, use this case with a motherboard that is compatible. There are numerous USB 2.0 and USB 5 Gbps Type-A connectors available for consumers to connect additional devices.
The ProArt PA602’s physical power button latch will be appreciated by users whose projects have ever been delayed by an inadvertent bump on the button. This straightforward method prevents inadvertent depressing of the power button.
The front, top, and bottom panels of the ProArt PA602 chassis have detachable dust filters to reduce the amount of dust that collects inside the chassis. Additionally, the PA602 includes a unique mechanism that determines automatically how much dust, microfibers, and other particles have accumulated on the front filter. When it determines that it is time to give the filters a thorough cleaning, it will turn on an LED on the side of the chassis.
The ProArt PA602 chassis boasts an effortlessly stylish appearance because to its simple, symmetrical design that is based on clear lines. Inviting a closer look into the internal hardware, the tempered glass side panel is tinted to reduce distractions and allow users to maintain concentration on their workflow. To build a PC with a unified design, users can combine the ProArt PA602 with other ProArt parts, such as ASUS ProArt motherboards, the ProArt LC 420 AIO liquid cooler, and ProArt graphics cards.
