XPG Claims Leadership of the Mesh PC Chassis’ Market

Taipei, Taiwan – June 3, 2021 – XPG, a fast-growing provider of systems, components, and peripherals for Gamers, Esports Pros, and Tech Enthusiasts, announces the launch of the XPG STARKER AIR and a new XPG DEFENDER to boost its offering in Mesh mid-tower chassis dedicated to avid gamers, PC enthusiasts and System Integrators on the lookout for the best airflow performance.


XPG STARKER AIR – Best Compact ATX Mid-Tower Chassis Performance for the Size

The XPG STARKER AIR will turn heads with its bold, yet not excessive gaming style and stunning ARGB flair while showcasing one of the best size/performance ratio in the whole industry in a compact form factor that makes the most out of the ATX format.

Compared to other STARKER offerings, it features a functional and sleek mesh front panel while retaining its iconic two front-facing ARGB light strips and comes in either black or white to match different personalities.  For ease of maintenance, the XPG STARKER family features an innovative on-rail dust filter design that is incredibly easy to remove, encouraging more frequent cleaning to prevent unsightly and potentially harmful dust accumulation. What's more, a replaceable VGA bracket makes it easy to show off graphics cards with lighting effects vertically or horizontally, despite the chassis' compact dimensions.

The chassis facilitates excellent airflow with support for up to six fans. It can also mount multiple radiators, including a 360mm radiator at the front of the chassis, a 280mm radiator on top, and a 120mm radiator at the rear. Closing the lineup of capabilities, users can store up to two 3.5" HDDs and two 2.5" HDDs or SSDs, plus a Combo Drive for 2.5" and 3.5" form factors. A complete set of I/O ports are also offered for easy connectivity with USB accessories, audio devices, and hassle-free switching between pre-programmed lighting effects.


XPG DEFENDER - Mid-Tower Mesh Chassis for the Ultimate PC Build

The XPG DEFENDER family manifests XPG’s ambition in PC components by introducing an E-ATX mid-tower dimension chassis that can host a graphic card up to 380mm length, which is plenty of space for supporting both the latest-generation NVIDIA® and AMD® cards and a CPU-mounted cooler up to 170mm depth. With enough space for better heat dissipation, the DEFENDER’s E-ATX dimensions ensure future-proof upgradeability for versatile modding.

XPG DEFENDER has a beautiful minimalist styling, featuring a magnetic mesh front panel that is understated yet elegant that is specifically targeted at maximizing optimal airflow. DEFENDER is able to support up to a 360mm radiator at the front and a 280mm radiator on top. What’s more, the XPG DEFENDER is built with three XPG VENTO 120 fans, which can be expanded up to seven if desired.
