MSI MEG Treble 6 Sided Case Delivers Three Chamber Quality


We’ve seen our share of weird cases over the years, the most recent being the Azza Regis 902 Borg-type cube. However, MSI is strutting around at CES 2022 with the equally impressive MEG Treble Series ITX hex case, which has an unorthodox look inside and out.

Looking at the exterior of the case along the sides (in an upright position), you will find three large removable panels and three other surfaces for a total of six sides. These panels give you access to three separate chambers in the case, as well as plenty of room to run your cables for internal components. Of course, you won’t be in a hurry for space either, as the MEG Treble’s first chamber accommodates one of MSI’s flagship GeForce RTX 3090 Ventus Ampere graphics cards.

The second chamber is dedicated to the motherboard and the power supply. The motherboard chosen for MSI’s build example (shown in photos) is the MEG Z690i Unify, which nests with a 750 watt power supply. Finally, the third chamber is reserved for the liquid cooling solution. In this application, MSI opted for the MEG CoreLiquid C280, which uses an aluminum radiator with an integrated pump and two 140mm fans.

By using the triple chamber arrangement, MSI can isolate the heat generated by the separate components and, in theory, improve cooling performance. For its demo, MSI added a 12th generation Intel Core i9-12900K processor paired with 32GB of Corsair Vengeance DDR5 memory and a 2TB Spatium M480 PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD.

Designed to compete with the best PC cases, the MEG Treble supports placement horizontally or in a more traditional vertical orientation. We imagine standing upright would be more beneficial for cooling, and that also looks downright cooler (forgive the pun).

MSI hasn’t provided any pricing or availability information, but we hope to see the MEG Treble arrive in the United States sooner rather than later. And while the system shown here comes fully equipped with MSI (and Corsair) components, you would just buy it as a bare chassis.
