    Yes, unfortunately it is taking longer. I should have messaged you all the other week. Progress is moving forward though. We had some items to resolve with the sheet metal factory. Long story short we are working on a more specific timeline this week based on the factory's capacity. It will...

    Hey everyone! Just want to touch base and let you know I've been busy working. It seems there is always a new thing to solve when working with factories. I will have some updates for you this Saturday!

    @BRSxIgnition @robojim Since this has come up several times, I will look into making a simple survey so we can see accurate numbers. I think what we all agree here is that there is a balance between two options that needs harmony. Also, please take note that this rear IO plate is specifically...

    Hey @BRSxIgnition I taken the feedback on the rear IO in consideration. Over time it is a topic of question because the design for is has changed/improved moving forward. There is in fact a pass through on this rear IO part so people that need the build freedom have it. You are right about...

    Hey @cennis , I was able to take a closer look in CAD. It looks like the Strix card will fit just fine. The tightest spot will actually be the GPU power cable. There is about 23mm of space to accommodate. So 13mm might be tight but it should work for the cable. You will want to order/make your...

    Yes you'd need at least one, you get a little better performance with two perf. The case is planned to come with one glass panel and one perf panel. At some point you will be able to purchase individual panels

    At first glance from these dimensions, it looks like this will fit. It could be tight (for the 2x280). I will need to take a closer look in CAD for me to say I'm 100% sure. WIth this large GPU you will need to use a pump/CPUblock combo (apogee, barrow, etc). Unfortunately the length and the...

    Which brand waterblock are you using? From what i've gathered on my own measurements. Almost all GPUs will fit is this case, with their waterblock options. What changes are the compatible options for Pump/Res components.

    Currently there is a passthrough in the rear so you can connect through there. There is also a USB C port in the front IO. I've decided to keep with the current design as it should work for most and any with a little more planning. It is my intent to update the IO configuration in future...

    -- UPDATE August 10th, 2021 -- TimeLine: This post is to bring you all up to speed with the timeline. We are working hard to get things where they need to before pre-ordering phase. Initially we made a goal earlier this year to announce pre-ordering late August 2021. This has changed and been...

    The glass is flush with the aluminum. However if you take a magnifying glass you will notice there is a tolerance difference between the two materials. you may measure about 0.25ish MM difference (slightly thinner glass) if using calipers. Visually unnoticeable.

    @Fitchew , Your Red Devil 6900XT will fit in the SlateCase :). Are you planning to put this on air and CPU on water?

    Hey @Fitchew , I think I mentioned in a comment some time ago that if you use mDTX doing dual radiators might be difficult. DTX reaches 30mm further than ITX, This basically takes up the available space for the second rad. If you add the available space together, in general, it is a total of...
