    Production MJOLNIR: The minimalistic – but not boring – 9.7L Case

    Almost exactly four years since the first post (Oct 14, 2017) announcing the Mjolnir (and Thor eGPU case). Congrats on seeing it through Kickstarter and production during a global pandemic.

    Production MJOLNIR: The minimalistic – but not boring – 9.7L Case

    I ordered both a Dark and a Steel case. The Shield of Founders that came with my Dark case appears to be fine - no visible chips, but I haven't inspected the panel closely for jagged edges. The glass panel on the Steel case however shows the exact same damage as @For_Science and you mentioned...

    I received my steel case this week. The case appears fine, just the front panel rattles slightly. However, my Shield of Founders glass panel arrived with glass fragments in the plastic bag and some chipping along the edge of the panel. Corner 1: Corner 2: Glass shards in plastic bag: The...

    What fan is above the motherboard?

    I'm in the USA. I backed Kickstarter for a Dark and Steel case, so I'm assuming this one is the Dark case.

    Well, I got my tracking number, so I'm ready to believe it now! 😃

    So just to check: As of April 27th, you do NOT have confirmed shipping agreement in place with any delivery company? You do NOT have a confirmed shipping agreement to get cases to the US, Canada, Australia and Europe? You do NOT have a confirmed date when manufacturing, anodizing, assembly and...

    The videos of the cases being CNC-machined in Sweden is also interesting. The idea of CNC'ing the Mjolnir was suggested a while ago, so it is interesting to see Louqe using CNC and producing the cases locally in Sweden. They are claiming 200 cases/wk.

    I'll pass on the hype - too many unexpected delays. I'm looking forward to the cases being completed, but I'm not anticipating anything before May 1, just to avoid disappointment. I expect something or other will be held up in customs, or Post Nord will lose something important in the mail, or...

    I made this spreadsheet, and posted it here in Dec 2019. I've tried to keep it updated as new AIOs are introduced. Unfortunately, the Asus Strix LC 120 AIO is listed as 121mm wide. It is possible that it might fit if there is sufficient margin in the tolerances between case and radiator. Won't...

    A curated list of 120mm AIO coolers is available. The limiting radiator dimensions are 157mm x 120mm x 34mm (assuming a 25mm fan). The pump block height is also limited to ~51mm (maybe 52-53mm if you can install the block after inserting the core), which eliminates several popular coolers...

    Both the Gigabyte Turbo 3090 and MSI Aero 3090 24G are two slot blower cards and will fit in Mjolnir. The Gigabyte Turbo is known to be very noisy; we don't yet know about the MSI card, which features an additional 'cooling heatsink'. Generally, 2-slot blower cards ARE hotter, because they can...

    120mm AIO spreadsheet Yes, added the Be Quiet Pure Loop 120. As you mention, the pump is mounted on the tubing: This unique pump mounting location MIGHT NOT fit in Mjolnir - it might interfere with PSU cables, AIO fan or simply cause too much stress on the tubing. It is an option to look at...

    List of 120mm AIOs for Mjolnir here: Dimensions taken from manufacturer's web pages. Note that how well an AIO fits may depend on length/stiffness of tubing, orientation of pump block and connectors, potential interference with motherboard RAM, VRM heatsinks, etc. Note that many AIOs have...
