LOS ANGELES, CALIF., OCTOBER 16, 2019 – iBUYPOWER, a leading manufacturer of custom gaming PCs, today announced its new MR Series of PC cases, expanding upon the company’s signature Slate, Trace and Element series of cases.

The Slate MR, Trace MR and Element MR all feature a black, partial-mirror finish on the front and side tempered glass panels. This custom finish gives the illusion of a mirror and reflects its surroundings when systems are off and no lighting is visible. When the enclosure is illuminated by the four addressable RGB (ARGB) fans included with each MR case, users will have a clear view of the internal components of their PC.

While similar in specifications, each of the MR cases feature a strikingly different aesthetic design on the front panel. The Element MR is designed with the same classic, flat face of its predecessor while the Slate and Trace MR both have three-dimensional crystalline shapes. Continuing the triangular pattern on the current Slate case, the MR version is constructed with three separate asymmetrical tempered glass panels. In comparison, the front panel of the Trace MR is composed of more traditional clean edges that come together to form a symmetrical trapezoid.
