    Production Pluto: a 13L wood top tower by Artesian Builds

    I have a big update. We got the new prototypes in and confirmed fitment of the motherboard/psu/gpu and at least one model of a 280 radiator. The final dimensions are 360mm x 345 mm x 142mm external, 328mm x 317mm x 126mm internal. Which computes to just a tad over 13L of internal volume. We are...

    Thank you! I look forward to delivering it. There are delays :( Your math is correct. The total internal space is 126mm which will leave 71mm for your pump. The mount that is built in to the front of the case however does not bias the pump all the way to the side panel, so you may be unable to...

    Thats the original prototype but that is not the riser we are going with. We will be shipping with what you refer to as type A. The angled one. Thank you! You can actually fit 10 drives, with a GPU (but itx motherboards usually have only 4 sata ports). Fitting 10 drives though would require you...

    I will inquire and PM you but I am confident that you did. We didn't exceed 100 total yet. always have time for this :) are the renders from post #20 the final design - I do not plan to make changes but we are still waiting on a prototype after this redesign to confirm fitment of the crucial...

    You are right about the angles. The inside frame is a perfect rectangle but the wood top is a parallelogram (and the bottom is a mirrored parallelogram). The aluminum side panels are not bent at 90 degrees but they do meet flush-ish at the front diagonal seam. It is very difficult to photograph...

    Yes, but with caveats. I do not have the iceman reservoir on hand to measure so have been relying on pictures and the dimensions provided on the manufacturers website and google. Unfortunately none of these pictures tell me where the inlet and outlet ports actually are exactly. From what I can...

    Production Pluto: a 13L wood top tower by Artesian Builds

    Yeah I originally wanted to stick to 240s but the volume increase is small and the performance difference is so large that it just makes sense to push for 280s. Besides fitting even longer GPUs is always a plus :) With the redesign both radiator mounts can support 280 rads, so if its possible to...

    Thanks! I do everything in Fusion 360. That's what im hoping for. Il probably try to cram a black ice nemesis GTX280 in there. I can confirm that the side bracket mounted rad will fit with 25mm thick fans, if your pump block is about 50mm tall. Please see below images, I just tried it for you...

    Production Pluto: a 13L wood top tower by Artesian Builds

    Hello everyone. So, here are the updates I have been working on. I sent all of these to the manufacturer already, waiting to hear back and will change the official specs once they green light the changes. 1) The case has grown to be 13L internal volume instead of 12. The new dimensions are...

    I am confident 313 will fit but not triple slot.

    Some good news and Some bad news. Il start with the bad. There are rolling power outages in China right now which has made it impossible to get riser cables. At the moment this puts our delivery timeline at risk. I don't think we need to push into 2022 just yet but December is looking a lot more...

    I'm thinking of making this case just a bit bigger. Specifically 325mm by 325mm by 126mm. Just 20mm bigger in length and height. This would put us at 13.3L (not a huge increase really) but would allow us to fit a 280 radiator. And would allow longer GPUs. Thoughts?

    There are not. At least half of that area is covered by power supply and (optionally) SSDs. So the only useful airflow really would be through where you see the hex mesh. It's not even 60mm wide though, so we would be talking puny fans if anything.

    Hello, everyone. So first and foremost, I have created a poll for the wood choices for the black case, and uploaded a side by side comparison picture into the first post. Please check it out and vote for the one you think works best on the black frame :) Now, for the sample build: This unit...
