The developers at Raijintek have given particular thought to cooling. The front is now completely made of a fine mesh. A huge 200 mm fan can be installed behind it. The back and bottom also have holes, as does the cover and side parts made of sandblasted aluminum. This allows cool air to reach the hardware installed from all sides.

Externally, the METIS EVO AL captivates with its simple but elegant design in noble silver, which only features the illuminated power button on the mesh front, a USB 3.0 port of type A and a USB 3.0 port of type C is decorated. The cover is made of lightweight aluminum and has a perforated grille both at the top and on the sides, which significantly supports the airflow inside the housing.
The housing of the slim cube case for Mini-ITX mainboards is made of two millimeters thick, colored anodized aluminum and measures only 29.3 cm (width) by 26.3 cm (height) by 29 cm (depth). The vertically aligned mainboard is attached to the steel frame, which extends over the back, bottom and front.

Raijintek METIS EVO AL: Innovative design, optimally cooled
With the innovative design of the METIS EVO AL, Raijintek has thus created a good balance between the smallest possible volume and yet usable space and thus combines an appealing flexibility in the choice of components with a small footprint. The additional fan slots are new here. Up to two 92 mm fans can now be attached to the rear, and either a 92 mm or even a 120 mm fan can be placed on the floor. The front 200 mm fan can be replaced by small versions in 140 or 120 mm format. This creates an effective airflow that cools the hardware installed inside. A CPU cooler can be up to 135 millimeters high. If you prefer all-in-one water cooling, you can attach the radiator up to 200 millimeters at the front. Then, however, the length of the dual-slot graphics card is limited from a maximum of 280 millimeters to 220 millimeters.
The METIS EVO AL also offers enough space to mount two 2.5 / 3.5-inch drives in the HDD cage under the lid. There is also room for two 2.5-inch drives on the HDD cage and on the floor. , The full-fledged ATX power supply on the back can be replaced by a compact SFX power supply, the bracket required for this is included in the case. This is how technology miracles become possible! At the bottom there are the stable feet, which also ensure good decoupling of vibrations and the air supply from below.
