FragBox

The Box is back!

All-new and completely redesigned to handle the latest generation of super hot-running CPUs and gigantic new graphics cards. About the only thing we didn't change was the overall shoebox-size & exterior look you love. We stole the CPU cooling tech from our latest Talon, the GPU cooling tech from our new Tiki, and compressed it all to the the smallest size possible. Read on to see just how much power we crammed into it...

NEW DESIGN
SAME SIZE

And of course we kept the handle

In 2004 we introduced the FragBox - the world's first Small Form Factor (SFF) PC that used only industry-standard, easily upgradeable components. Originally designed as a "luggable" LAN-party gaming system, FragBox quickly found a home with many companies and professionals as a powerful, portable, space-saving PC without big compromises. Our clients use them for everything- from running demos at tradeshows, to generating visuals at a concert, to being carted between Apache helicopters for downloading after-mission data. FragBoxes have been an enduring Falcon design for almost two decades.

Our newest "4th gen" FragBox chassis design may look similar on the outside, but every inch has been redesigned to handle the power and cooling needs of the newest CPUs and graphics cards.

"This is incredibly impressive for the size. The guys at Falcon engineer these things to the nines. Everything about this box is just so well done..."


- Justin Robey, RobeyTech

SMALL OUTSIDE
BIG INSIDE

The launch of NVIDIA's 40-Series graphics cards shook the industry with more than just their off-the-charts speed. Their sheer physical size took everyone by surprise. The NVIDIA Founders Editions are the smallest 40-Series cards made at 12" long and 3 PCI slots wide. Other versions (like the RTX 4090 card pictured here) have even larger heatsinks and can be 13" or more. FragBox was designed to handle these behemoths- with enough power, cooling and room to handle cards up to 13.8" long and 3+slots wide.

"The build quality on this... it doesn't screw around. This thing is really quiet. I'm impressed. I'm impressed with this whole setup."

SUPER COOL

The largest CPU liquid cooler ever squeezed into a Small Form Factor

The huge custom 280mm liquid cooling radiator we developed for our Talon mid-tower has been praised by the press for its incredible performance and low-noise. So we just designed the new FragBox around Talon's CPU cooler. It features a custom rectangular copper coldplate for more thermal coverage of rectangular CPUs like the new Intel Core & AMD Threadrippers. With the latest CPUs designed to keep boosting faster with more cooling until they maintain their target 95-100 degrees Celsius, our cooler literally provides more CPU performance, longer.

Engineered Thermal Management

Today's CPUs & GPUs can easily consume 700+ Watts of electricity when running hard. Imagine the heat from seven 100 Watt lightbulbs stuffed into a shoebox and you'll appreciate the work we put into FragBox's thermal management. When you compress this much power into this little space, heat and fan noise issues become an engineering challenge. Making that challenge even tougher, the latest NVIDIA card designs have entirely different airflow paths for the triple-fan and Founders Edition variants. We spent countless hours on thermal and airflow analysis to make sure our design kept these high-powered components cooled and as quiet as possible.

Graphics card cooling

The GPU cooling system we developed for our latest Tiki works so well, we added it to FragBox. Dual 120mm low-RPM, low-noise slim fans gently force air into the graphics card's intakes and heatsinks of both triple-axial fan and Nvidia Founders flow-thru designs. Despite the added fans, this extra cooling allows the graphics card's own fans to run slower and reduces overall system noise.

Up-Front Ports

In addition to the plethora of ports on the back of the motherboard, FragBox features two USB 3.1 Type A and one USB 3.2 Type C connector right on top for easy access. A power LED glows soft white when the system is on, and the drive activity light alerts you when the storage is being accessed. A combination headset/microphone jack upfront makes quick headset connections a breeze.

Metal beats plastic

Like all Falcon desktops, we use as little plastic as possible in FragBox's construction. We use solid aluminum for the front faceplate and handle, and aluminum top and sides. They're anodized a rich black and "bead-blasted" (like sand-blasting but using little plastic beads) for a high-end, fingerprint resistant texture.

Here you can see the huge custom aluminum extrusion we carve into just one beautiful hourglass-shaped handle. Its unibody construction creates a relatively light, but very strong handle to support the weight while moving the FragBox. And of course it gives it its iconic shape.

Robey for Scale

Tech reviewer Justin Robey of RobeyTech was the first to cover the new FragBox, and he conveniently had it next to a traditional 19.2" tall mid-tower from another manufacturer for scale.

Storage capacity

In addition to the three internal M.2 PCI Express Gen4 & Gen5 slots on most motherboards (support varies by board), FragBox features mounting points for three more legacy storage drives: two 2.5" SSD bays, and one 3.5" standard spinning hard drive bay.

That means you can have 40 TERABYTES of storage (or more) in a FragBox!
