J-Hack PureFrom $79.95


The Pure is the first case released by the new company J-Hack. The understated Mini-ITX case doesn’t play it safe though, there is an optional internal power supply solution that helps separate it from the pack.

Design & Compatibility

The J-Hack Pure certainly doesn’t take a bunch of chances with its design. While I personally think that is a good thing, you may disagree. The design is simple, and should easily blend in on any desk or entertainment setup.

Spec wise the Pure is pretty standard. It’s important to note that you won’t be able to fit a GPU in this case, and it only supports coolers up to 48mm. This is somewhat standard for ITX cases of this size, but keep it in mind when planning your build.

You should really only be putting 65W TDP CPU’s in here, but if you mount dual 60mm fans you could probably get away with some higher TDP processors.

For testing I went with a CPU that I knew would stress that low profile cooler and really test out the thermal performance of the Pure even though most users will most likely opt for lower powered budget friendly parts.

CPU temperatures on the 6-Core i5-9600K were kept well in check. Due to the large top and side openings the Pure does an excellent job when it comes to temperatures.

I used Prime 95 to stress the GPU and saw peek temps averaging around 78C. This is an excellent result considering the size of this case and cooler.
