Singularity Computers Wraith 2.0 Volta is a whole new approach to computer case design. With Spectre we introduced liquid cooling system integration in the form of a distribution plate which replaced the entire rear wall of the case, we used similar ideas on Wraith 2.0. With the Singularity Computers PowerBoard we have introduced electronics integration, essentially it is a distribution plate but for cables.
Wraith 2.0 is now split into two versions one which has our liquid cooling integration and Volta which has PowerBoard Integration. The PowerBoard on Wraith 2.0 Volta is fully integrated replacing the entire rear wall of the case like the distribution plate on Wraith 2.0. Behind it are two acrylic covers, one clear with laser etching and another satin black cover. The PowerBoard integrates the 24pin and 8pin EPS, PWM & ARGB Hubs, direct connect SATA 2.5” and 3.5”. It also has integrated ARGB LEDs around the perimeter and under the motherboard, a touch activated power button, power and reset buttons and an on off switch for the ARGB LEDs. The PowerBoard reduces cable clutter meaning there is more space for liquid cooling components and loop building.
Volta fits a high-end liquid cooled system with 2x 240mm radiators, the largest GPUs, any size SFX-L PSU and a Standard Tube pump/reservoir combo. There are two PSU locations depending on the configuration you prefer, the rear PSU location allows larger pump/reservoir combos to be used and the front PSU position allows more 3.5” drives to be installed.
The PowerBoard is a PCB which integrates the 24pin and EPS, PWM and ARGB Hubs, direct connect SATA 2.5” and 3.5”, Power and Reset Buttons, ARGB LEDs with an on off switch and a touch activated Power Button. The PowerBoard distributes core component cables and integrates other features and functions. It is a new method for cables allowing standardization of cable lengths and making cable management no longer necessary. Wraith 2.0 Volta comes included with a standard set of black sleeved linking cables including 24pin x1 and 8pin EPS x2, the PCIE cables need to be directly connected from the PSU to the GPU.
Reduced build time due to integration:
The functionality integrated on the Powerboard means that these components don’t have to be installed separately. For example, the PWM and ARGB hubs, lighting and the direct connect SATA 2.5” and 3.5”. The need for cable management is almost completely removed by the PowerBoard.
Integration Cost Component:
A large portion of the case cost is due to the integration. These are components you do not have to purchase for your build. The Powerboard is a full solution for cables and ARGB and PWM hubs.
Theoretically the more integration the less compatibility. For Wraith Voltas integration each connector was positioned based on an average of a vast range of components and builds.
Integration & Optimization:
With the integration we did not just develop a case, we also developed all the integrated components. This meant that we could focus more on optimization than would normally be possible.
High End Components:
Despite its small size Wraith 2.0 Volta can fit a high-end liquid cooled build. It can fit a full-sized GPU and SFX-L PSU. It can fit x2 240mm radiators 30mm thick with a single set of fans. There is enough space for a pump and reservoir combo such as the Protium 2.0 ARGB 150 D5 Reservoir Combo. The PowerBoard reduces cable bulk allowing more space for liquid cooling components.
Two PSU Mounting Locations:
There is a PSU mounting location toward the front of the case on the bottom panel and at the back of the case on the rear panel. The front PSU location is more for Wraith 2.0 allowing space for the integrated pump, the rear PSU location is more for Wraith 2.0 Volta allowing space for pump/reservoir combos mounted onto the inside of the front radiator. Only the front PSU location can be used with Wraith 2.0 to make room for the pump but on Wraith 2.0 Volta either PSU location can be used. The benefit of the front PSU location is you can fit an extra 3.5” HDD, and the benefit of the rear one is that you can fit larger pump/reservoir combos. It also depends on your build layout and how you want it to look.

Design & Engineering
We are all experienced system builders at Singularity Computers having built high end water-cooled systems for over 15 years. Our approach to product development begins with a need for our own builds and so the origin is always function. From there we start to build ideas around this function and the aesthetics and everything else follows. The original ideas for our products came from years of building highly customized, high end water-cooled systems and trying to reduce the exceptionally long build times and complexity. Our approach to development is hands on, we are using our own products every day.
Almost all components of Wraith are CNC machined from a solid block of material with extreme precision. Everything is carefully assembled by hand and tested. Our approach and philosophy are that there is no hidden or back side, everything is on display and so the design is a celebration of the raw materials and the manufacturing processes with everything on display.
