At the end of April, the manufacturer Kolink expanded its product portfolio in the area of enclosures without much notice. The new product is called Citadel and is a simple mini tower with tempered glass. As further features Kolink mentions the support of two 240 mm radiators, two pre-installed case fans and plenty of space for “powerful” hardware. The Citadel is only offered in a black version and costs € 44.90.
