We would like to introduce to you a product that boasts small dimensions, a high-wattage power supply, a well-designed cooling system, excellent functionality and cute looks. Don’t also forget the opportunity of transforming this barebone into a powerful gaming station, as it will accommodate almost any graphics card! And this is not all: ASUS S-presso S1 has enough trumps to successfully challenge traditional full-size solutions. Find out what they are from our review!

The side panels carry the ASUS logo and also have vent holes shaped in such a way as to ensure air flow towards the two hottest devices, i.e. the CPU and the graphics card.
Big vent holes are the best way to ensure effective and quiet cooling
The back panel is quite an ordinary sight: a power supply, a pair of exhaust fans and a connections panel.

The two exhaust fans aren’t just a decoration – they are efficient enough despite their small size.
Now it’s time to have a look at the barebone’s internals. A step-by-step instruction on how to dismantle the case is attached to the top panel. Without this instruction even an experienced user may not guess right how this operation is to be performed. But it turns out to be quite easy and quick.
Don’t be so hasty to remove this sticker – read it carefully first!
First you cautiously remove the front panel by pulling its bottom toward yourself. Then unfasten the screw at the rear panel and shift the top part of the case forward.

Then you just pull the handle on the top panel. The top panel unfolds along with the front part of the barebone.
It turns out to be rally simple!
