HYTE Announces CNVS qRGB Gaming Play Mat and a Number of PC Accessories at CES 2023
LAS VEGAS, JAN. 5, 2023 – HYTE, the PC components, peripherals, and lifestyle brand of iBUYPOWER, today, announced its new CNVS qRGB Gaming Play Mat along with a number of case accessories compatible with its popular Y60.
CNVS and qRGB
Designed as the first offering in a future qRGB ecosystem of products, the HYTE CNVS Gaming Play Mat provides users with an immersive and extremely responsive lighting experience. Powered by HYTE’s hardware management software, Nexus, CNVS boasts a 50-pixel qRGB lighting array which frames the massive 900 x 370mm, seven-layer gaming play mat. Sans any stitching along the outer edge, CNVS will take any gaming setup to the next level, acting as an extension to the on-screen lighting display. A detachable Type-C USB cable sits in the top left corner of CNVS to not interfere with keyboard and mouse cables while the silky polyester top layer provides a comfortable surface for extended game play and maximum comfortability.
Y60 Corner Accessories
With the DIY modding community in mind, HYTE developed two corner glass replacement accessories for its ever-popular Y60 case, the Y60 LCD DIY Kit and the Y60 Distro Plate.
Users can further personalize their Y60 case with the Y60 LCD DIY Kit. The high-resolution LCD screen fits perfectly into the Y60 corner panel to display video wallpapers, system monitoring, GIFs and more. Out of the box, HYTE will provide the LCD screen, driver board, and necessary cables to power the display, but users will need to DIY a mounting solution. An STL file for a 3D printed mount is available for download on the HYTE website.
For the custom cooling enthusiast, HYTE has designed the corner panel Y60 Distro Plate. Also sitting in the corner panel slot of the Y60, the Y60 Distro Plate provides a front and center display of the flow of the coolant. Compatible with both D5 and DDC pumps, for a range of custom loops, the Y60 Distro Plate has four separate flow chambers to enable precise routing of coolant between radiators and water blocks. The ports of the Y60 Distro Plate are arranged for a dual radiator setup to provide cooling for both the CPU and GPU.
DIY Push-to-Connect Fittings
By popular demand for the cooling enthusiast community, HYTE has designed Push Connects, the DIY version of the push-to-connect fittings utilized in iBUYPOWER’s Element CL systems. Unlike typical compression fittings, Push Connects don’t use a compression collar and don’t need to be tightened to hold tubing in place. Instead, Push Connects utilize a set of teeth on the inside of the fittings to hold the tubes in place. To engage the fittings, users simply push the tubing into the fittings and the teeth clamp
down; to disengage, users will need to press down on the top of the fitting and the teeth will retract. Push Connects are machined from solid brass and plated for corrosion resistance and will be available in packs of six in 14mm OD tube support size.
CNVS, Y60 LCD DIY Kit, Y60 Distro Plate and Push Connects will be on display during CES 2023 at the iBUYPOWER and HYTE exhibit located at Titian 2306 at the Venetian.
