Spacious System Layout and Easy Cable Management

The Taku’s system tray layout is divided into compartments to maximize space and upgradability. The Taku can house a full 280mm high-end GPU card as well as two 2.5” SSDs and one 3.5” hard drive. This makes the Taku fully capable of housing a high-end gaming system. The Taku has even taken care of cable management with specialized covers to tuck away your cables for aesthetics and improved internal airflow.

CRYORIG

Liberate Your Desk Space

The Taku is designed specifically to create a more space efficient PC experience. The fact that the Taku is capable to house your full PC, store the keyboard and work as a monitor stand saves massive amounts of desk space by arranging everything vertically. This means more physical desk space for you to use, not just as a PC desk.

Hand Crafted, Solid Wooden Legs. No Taku is Alike

Solid hand crafted wooden legs were the chosen material as the base of the Taku. This was both for the excellent structural support and also for the craftsmanship of solid wood. No two sets of wooden legs will have the exact same texture, which awesomely makes each Taku unique.

Neat case non-existent customer service

Pros: It's pretty easy building inside this case
The look is definitely unique

Cons: Overpriced
The rails I received did not align correctly and I've been trying to contact their customer service for months to no avail. Newegg customer service isn't any better. Don't bother buying this if a manufacturer won't stand behind their so called warranty.

Good, but not perfect.

Pros: This product is all about the looks and style. I bought it to build a midrange gaming system for someone and she LOVES it. It doesn't show any flex with a 34" ultrawide LG on it. The included extension cables for the power supply were a nice (and needed) touch.

Cons: $300 is a lot for a system that can never handle high-end heat. Make sure you pick out hardware that will work with limited cooling capabilities. I ended up with a 1060 6GB Founders Edition for the blower style cooling and an i5 7500T so I'm only putting out 35W of heat around the CPU. There's no clip for the GPU's IO plate other than the two screws and PCIE slot, so be gentle with the card.

Overall Review: A little white LED underglow adds a nice touch and can be powered over USB.

Gorgeous but surprisingly HUGE

Pros: What a beautiful case. They "out-Appled Apple". Love the drawer, look, feel and smells.

Cons: - So much bigger than it seems in the pictures. To be fair, I wasn't going to use it as a stand. I wanted this to sit besides my XBox and Playstation -- a PC that blends in as a console. But it utterly dwarfs both and doesn't really leave much room on the shelf for anything else.
- Everything seems so well made but the freaking ON button wasn't correctly mounted in the center of the hole AND it was askew. I could probably fix it with some effort, but for the price? I sent it back for a replacement.
- Afraid to set a monitor on top of it. Might scuff the finish.
- Wooden legs are ugly (imo).
- Even if you take off the legs, you're left with metal nubbins. This is for airflow. I keep my electronics on a bread rack, so for me, even if it were flush with the shelf, the air flows freely through the thin metal bars. That's a pretty specific complaint though.
- My big gripe with the nubs is that make it impossible to set the case vertically and have it look good.
- No room for optical drive. But maybe I can rig one inside the drawer? Hmm...

Overall Review: This is still a beautiful, thin case. And because I'm sick in the head, I'll still keep it around, waiting for the right reason to use it. Until then, I'll be sticking with another lovely case, the Silverstone FTZ01.

Kind of retro, but perhaps the best desktop form factor for today

Pros: Clean design, entirely capable of fitting a medium-high grade gaming rig componentry in a small space
Two 3.5", two 2.5" and two M.2 drives can be fit in this case if your motherboard has two M.2 like my Gigabyte. More storage than you need typically.

Cons: There is a slight misalignment of the left aluminum foot extrusion on my case; it is too short to match the rest of the case in depth. I didn't really notice it until I had the build well under way. It's not a deal breaker for me but for something so well designed I would have liked it to be completely perfect.
The graphics card has to exhaust a fan out the bottom of the case. This isn't best for most cards.
I wish there were some loops punched in the back metal to put wire wraps through to do some cable management. If you are planning on putting this on a table the back end is no better to look at than most PCs, though if your motherboard uses a nice dark or black port cover it will look better. I stuck on some desktop rubber cable guides.
The rubber pads on the wood feet can mark some surfaces if you slide it.

Overall Review: To me it seems wider (and taller) than it looks in pictures in person, yet shallower than I expected. I had an older graphics card I was originally intending to build with it but it was 1/4" too long to fit. Yet it is this wide to allow a full height graphics card to fit between the Mini ITX board and the standard sized power supply. If they had a custom power supply and used two 2.5" drive cages instead of 3.5" it could be a bit smaller and I think it would feel a little less daunting on the desk. But it is still pretty spiffy to look at.
I was glad they had a deal with the Cryorig low profile CPU cooler that fits it when I bought it.
I bought an unusual monitor to go with this; a MP 22" IPS FHD Graphic Pen Display. Due to the way its stand works it sits just above the main body and blocks almost none of the air holes on top. Several pen displays and touch displays are out there that are very close to this form factor and make the system feel very nicely integrated. Most monitors have feet that will block some of the air holes. I wanted it to run as quietly as possible so I took some steps to avoid that.

Nice Case, Disappointing Service (Updated 4/4/18)

Pros: I know that some people are averse to supporting this case due to the price, and I'll fully admit that the case is not worth $300. However, I understand why the price is what it is. Cryorig is a first-time case manufacturer, and the cost of tooling, producing, and shipping these things is probably immense for a company of Cryorig's size. They need to recoup as much of that cost as possible. If this case had been produced by a company that was established in the industry, it would probably cost $100 less. However, none of the established case manufacturers were bold enough to produce a case like this.

The Taku is everything I was looking for in my next case purchase: small form factor, unique, made of high-quality materials, and well-built. It also allows me to use the case as a monitor stand, and helps reduce desk clutter by hiding cables, providing a storage space for my keyboard and mouse, and generally reducing the footprint of my rig. I only have a few minor quibbles with the case (that I'll outline below). It was a relative breeze to build in, and overall I'm quite satisfied with the case and happy to give it a 5/5.

Cons: Cryorig's customer service needs major improvement. The C7 cooler that was included with my purchase did not come with an AM4-compatible bracket, which I find to be absolutely inexcusable a full year after Ryzen's release. I had rush shipped the case to my location in order to build over the weekend, and my build was delayed several days as I attempted to sort this out with Cryorig. My initial attempts to contact the company were met with silence. When I finally received a message from customer support, they offered to send an upgrade kit in 4-11 business days. My issue was only fully resolved when I contacted Steve, the co-founder of the company, via reddit. However, he was only able to expedite the delivery of the kit. I would've appreciated a refund on the rush shipping I paid for the case, but I was happy to have the kit in a decent amount of time. It looks like they've adjusted the listing on Newegg to ensure an AM4 kit is included with the cooler.

Other smaller issues:
-The quality of the shipping materials was sub par for the price of the product. This is a cheap fix and should be rectified.
-The 3.5" HDD tray could easily fit two drives, yet it has only been tooled to fit one. The 2.5" SSD tray could fit 3 drives, but only fits 2.

Overall Review: Some notes for folks thinking about building in this thing:
- Max CPU cooler height is 48mm. The wraith coolers that come stock on Ryzen CPUs will not fit. Good options are the Cryorig C7 (if you're using an Intel CPU, since it doesn't include an AM4-compatible backplate) and/or Noctua NH-L9a-AM4.
- You may want to order SATA power extensions with this case. The drives are mounted flush against the floor of the drawer and trays, so you need 180 degree (flat) SATA power cables. My PSU, the Corsair sf 450, came with cheap, inflexible 90 degree cables that wouldn't work with the drive mounts in the case. More of an issue with Corsair than Cryorig, but still worth mentioning.

Some suggestions for Taku 2.0:
-Raise HDD and SSD mounts ~10mm off the floor of the case to allow for compatibility of 90 degree SATA power connectors found on most SF PSUs.
-The region around the HDD cage is the warmest spot in my build, though I'm using a full-length GPU which may limit airflow to that section. It would be great to get an option to mount a fan to the top of the HDD cage, especially if you continue to use a cage that only fits one HDD.

Great design, surprisingly easy to build in

Pros: Love the look, totally unique. The tray design coupled with smart cable management options made this a breeze to use.

Cons: Be careful not to disconnect the front panel USB cable - no idea how I did that but it was a pain to re-position.
