    Advice A tiny gap in the market (dual radiator showpiece cases)

    For now, I went with a budget-ish non-SFF 27L Metallicgear Neo G Mini V2 to hold the components until a better quality showpiece case with dual radiator support and room for that GPU + Pump + Reservoir exists. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/NZvygt The V2 adds a lot more space in the front...

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

    Yeah the timestamp on the post explains my math. *yawn* Sorry about the confusion.

    Are you sure about that? By my math a 240mm radiator is two 120mm squares, so 120*120*2=28800 square mm. 140*140*2 is 39200 sq mm so about 1.36 the surface area. Ignore that. I should't math past 1 am.

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

    OUCH $24 shipping on that block! I mean I still bought one just to try it out but OUCH. I think one of the problems with current sandwich style cases is that they have so little space ABOVE the CPU socket, making them difficult to squeeze in a reservoir that will feed CPU-block mounted pumps. I...

    Thanks everyone. I am familiar with the T-type reservoir and got it working in my SM570 build, but it was soooo annoying that I don't want to go that route again. It only worked because I was able to sneak in the pump on the front panel. If I could drill the front panel on the Winter One without...

    Thanks @WinterCharm ! This didn't start as a Winter One thread but became one. I'll move Winter specific questions over there.

    Advice A tiny gap in the market (dual radiator showpiece cases)

    I just spent another 20 minutes re-watching the kickstarter and assembly videos for the Winter One and honestly do not know where I'd possibly mount a pump and any fill/drain spots in it. The photo on the kickstarter just showed a pump hanging out of the side. It can't take a wall-mounted...

    It does seem promising, but without room for a pump and it's a kickstarter... I am done with crowdfunded preorders after four consecutive disappointments.

    If @WinterCharm offered a glass panel, he'd probably already have my preorder :D

    Think EK would make a distro plate for the Mini like they did the O11 Dynamic?

    Hmm... that looks clever, but I'd like to actually be able to read the order page. I hope they get a US (or at least English) distributor.

    Advice A tiny gap in the market (dual radiator showpiece cases)

    I'm chasing my fourth small form factor custom liquid project and I noticed that there doesn't seem to be an exact case for what I want. Maybe you can correct me or maybe some custom builders can consider this as their next goal. There seem to be a few started projects either in prototype or...

    Production Sliger SV590 and SV540 - Vertical SFF Cases!

    Since people have asked: Here's the design made in TinkerCad to mount the Phanteks R160. You can edit it yourself to tweak your screw spacing. My print shrunk a little when it cooled, so I heated up screws to mount the reservoir (I think those are M2.5 screws or M3) and used fan screws on the...
