ORIGIN PC reveals desktop case that lets motherboard be placed in four different ways

When anyone has purchased a big desktop PC for gaming or work, or if they assemble one of their own, there's only been one place where the motherboard and graphics cards could be placed inside a case. Today during CES 2014, ORIGIN PC debuted an all new case design that supports what it calls Variable Mounting, which lets a motherboard and graphics cards be orientated in four different ways inside.

ORIGIN PC says its new Millennium and Genesis cases allow for the motherboard to be placed in Standard ATX, Inverted ATX, 90 degrees or Inverted 90 degree modes inside. This allows for the board and graphics cards to have improved airflow inside while also offering a better look at the liquid-cooling blocks. The cases also support up to four NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards to be placed inside in SLI mode. The cases also offer a duel hinge front door that can be set up to open from either the left or right side for access to the optical drives, media card reader and bay devices.

In addition, people who purchase the mid-tower Millennium case from ORIGIN PC can later purchase an expansion kit that can be placed on the bottom to turn it into a full tower Genesis case. The kit allows users to add two 360 radiators, up to 12 3.5 inch storage drives or up to 24 2.5 inch storage drives. ORIGIN PC also offers a way to include up to five hot swappable hard drive bays so owners can switch out storage drives without having to turn off the PC.

The Genesis desktops from ORIGIN PC starts at $1,849 with the Millennium desktops starting at $1,629.
