A Masterpiece in the Making

In March of this year, 8Pack released the incredible Frame R8 wall-mounted PC: an insane gaming computer that was packed to the brim with innovation and high-performance hardware. A system housed inside a unique wall-mounted chassis, the Frame R8 was designed in collaboration with the team at Creative Solutions For Gamers to deliver a truly unique gaming experience.

You might be asking yourself, what is the ‘big guy’ going to release next? Well, it’s time for 8Pack to deliver the news that everyone has been waiting for…

Introducing The Crow & The Tower of Doom

Working closely with CSFG, 8Pack has been working behind the scenes on the development of two stunning wall mountable cases. Say a big “hello” to The Crow (as utilised by the Frame R8), and The Tower of Doom.

Both cases feature an ingenious wall-mounted design that has been manufactured from premium-quality materials. The beautiful aluminium framework has been CNC-milled and sandblasted for a perfectly smooth finish. In addition, the 4mm laser cut tempered glass front panel allows you to proudly display your gaming hardware in all its glory. Simply put, these over-engineered cases will elevate any water-cooled build to masterpiece status!

Designed for water cooling, each case excels when it comes to thermal performance. The Crow ups the ante coming in a 540mm x 820mm x 200mm form factor, deep enough to accommodate a dual pump cooling system operating in a single loop for maximum flow rates. This can be paired with 2 x 360mm radiators, 6 x 120mm fans, and 2 x reservoirs. It even comes with custom Pinion distro-plates and Spectre D5 pump tops (pumps sold separately) as standard.

The Tower of Doom, on the other hand, fits in the same footprint but is a little narrower than its counterpart at 540mm x 820mm x 160mm.
Due to its slimmer framework, the case can house a single loop water cooling setup and comes with a custom-built Bloodfountain distro-plate reservoir, designed to feed the whole system.

Other differences include hosting a GPU with a maximum length of 330mm (400mm on The Crow), plus support half the number of radiators and fans. Fret not, this still grants an insane level of customisation, allowing you to build the ultimate gaming PC of your dreams.

Functional Art

More than a mere case, both The Crow and The Tower of Doom look like something you might find in a modern art gallery. The cases are clean and sleek, almost zen-like in appearance.
There are no side panels, allowing for natural airflow throughout the case. Plus, due to their streamlined nature, there is minimal dust collection so the need for unsightly dust filters are a thing of the past.

Taking this a step further, the back panel has integrated cross-sections, ensuring cable management a breeze. What’s more hidden, behind the backplate, is a ton of storage space, allowing you to hide away boring hardware such as SSDs, HDDs, USB hubs, and RGB controllers.
