The “The Beast” case from the Belgian manufacturer Monsterlabo is said to have been sold out for months, but now the fanless ATX tower can be pre-ordered again in limited quantities. 20 units are available as “The Beasts and Accessories” pack and 50 are available for future configurations.

It’s been almost two years since Monsterlab, a Belgian manufacturer of fanless cases, presented its tower “The Beast”, which is equipped with two total 400 watt coolers. A few units of the case were already sold before being sold out for months, according to Monsterlabo. However, since June 15, the case with the ATX form factor can be pre-ordered again, albeit in an updated version and in limited quantities.
