    Prototype SF-ATX Aluminum mainstream case (CX2 update)

    Nice! I've been wanting a Sunmil BG3 layout for awhile. Loving the third layout pic. I know not everything is final, but consider enlarging the mesh holes. Those tiny holes on the renders will severely limit airflow to like 10%. Bigger holes are better. Also will there be a back panel? Or will...

    Enclosure I want this beautifully crafted case. Anyone make anything on par or do similar custom CNC?

    Yeah I've seen that case but it's slightly bigger than I want (designed for mATX, ATX PSU, 2 360mm radiators, 406mm GPU). Its actually a lot larger and too big for my needs, but I'm sure it's a great performer.

    Just need to get over the color, but other than that this is a case that I really want (a black one would simply be amazing): https://www.chiphell.com/thread-1396052-1-1.html It's neat that the perforated and tempered glass panels are interchangeable front and back for ideal ventilation...

    Completed Knarr: ~12L case with a focus on liquid cooling and aesthetics

    I know wood is the primary material that makes this case standout, but honestly I think the case would appeal to more people if it were made entirely out of aluminum. Durability is questionable and I don't think the wood would age very well. Perhaps it would be cheaper too? Plus a lot of people...

    Completed Knarr: ~12L case with a focus on liquid cooling and aesthetics

    I love the layout of this case. Been looking for a Sunmilo BG3 for awhile without luck unfortunately and the Xoild 13 on this forum seems to be a bust as well. Just wished this case was made completely out of aluminum. I think more people would like it as well. The wood is nice and all, but I...

    Prototype Xolid 13: clear side panel and extensive compatibility (Update in first post)

    I so wish this case would go into production but alas it doesn't seem like I can find any recent updates and the OP hasn't been around the forums in awhile. I even messaged without a response. Perhaps another dead end project unfortunately. Please prove me wrong!

    Production Winter One -- 15.6L SFF case, 3090 Support, 3-slot GPUs, dual 280mm radiators, CFD Optimized Design

    OP should update the first post stating that the Kickstarter has begun and share the link there... I had to read into several pages to realize that it was occuring. Youtube exposure would've been good; maybe could have sent a prototype to Optimum Tech...

    Prototype Small ATX Motherbord Case!! (Updated!)

    Still, I'd argue that the adding fans behind the GPU to vent out the hot air immediately would benefit FE style and triple fan cards. Would be nice if data was available regarding temps on console vs sandwich design SFF cases. GPUs and CPUs seem to get hotter and hotter and I think that console...

    Prototype Small ATX Motherbord Case!! (Updated!)

    I know this is an old thread, but I really do think the console style slim tower format would benefit the new RTX 3000 series cards very well ion air cooled setups due to the straight path past through venting. A lot of cases these days are sandwich style which are the best in terms of...

    Prototype Xolid 13: clear side panel and extensive compatibility (Update in first post)

    I'm glad that I was mistaken regarding the glass side panel; you guys seem to be offering a ventilated aluminum one. That's a great idea as I feel that many people don't like babying their tempered glass cases when they travel. I know it's probably too late, but I think it would be neat if there...

    Prototype Xolid 13: clear side panel and extensive compatibility (Update in first post)

    Any updates? I'm looking for an aluminum console style case and this seems to fit the bill nicely. But I may need a case sooner rather than later. I know that you are not planning on offering a ventilated side panel, but I would like one as I prefer air cooling. Maybe design it so you can use...

    Enclosure Need help identifying this Sunmilo case or maybe others like it?

    Case in question: It is similar in format to the Silverstone Raven / FalconNW Tiki series of cases but uses much better materials. I bet a black case with silver hardware would look really good and depending on the side panel cutouts, it could provide decent ventilation. Unforutnatley, this is...

    Advice CPU/Mobo cooling with 72mm of height to work with; would you run two fans or one but with a taller heatsink? Which other combo is best?

    Ok, some updates in case someone was in a similar situation. The term I needed to learn about was "fan stacking." Apparently its more ideal to stack fans in serial with counter-rotating blade directions with each subsequent fan. But fan stacking hardly provides any benefits and can even hurt...

    Advice CPU/Mobo cooling with 72mm of height to work with; would you run two fans or one but with a taller heatsink? Which other combo is best?

    Hello everyone. First post so please be gentle! I managed to snag a Falcon Northwest Tiki case for my first gaming SFF build. Little did I know the amount of planning that SFF guys have to consider when building in tight places. My plan is to run a Ryzen 3600 on a Asus ROG Strix X570-i board...
