    Prototype REVOCCASES - RCC-MID1 | industrial style low cost case with focus on good thermals and low noise

    Man Oh man, I absolutely love this new focus on Cooling that I've seen multiple SFF cases take on recently :) Keep the good stuff coming.

    Prototype Winter One v08 -- Custom Case update. 15.4L SFF with dual 240mm radiator + Full Length GPU. CFD Goodness inside!

    Winter One -- v08 Update So it’s been 4 months since I showed off the v05 design. Since then, there have been 3 iterations on the case, each one with a different focus: * v06 — Cost Savings & Manufacturability, Exterior Redesign, Exterior Airflow Studies (outer panels) * v07 — Final...

    Update with Rainbow CFD: First of all, thanks for waiting this long!!!! So, it's been *months* since the last update. I'd like to personally apologize to all the people patiently waiting. I'm sorry it's taken a while, but I had my head down working on getting this case ready for production...

    You're very welcome! Thank you for the kind offer. Once prototyping is completed, I will take you up on that. Manufacturing is a bit outside my comfort zone, so having someone to point me in the right direction, and answer questions will be incredibly helpful :)

    Thank you! I’ll certainly keep this in mind and may reach out to Loque and Thorzone for some more advice :)

    Two Aerospace Engineers on the Small Form Factor Reddit started an excellent discussion about CFD, by asking me for more more specifics on the technical side of how it's being used to inform the design. Their names are /u/hobowithabazooka and /u/nalc. The resulting discussions were extremely...

    Once this project is off the ground, and can be kept in stock for anyone who wants to buy, I will look at doing another design. What that ends up being will depend entirely on whether there's enough attention in the mATX space at that time, but that's a project for another day. Right now, this...

    Prototype Winter One v08 -- Custom Case update. 15.4L SFF with dual 240mm radiator + Full Length GPU. CFD Goodness inside!

    The outer shell is going to be 4 pieces, (front + rear + side panels) that I plan to have separately extruded and then machined. The render has bad lighting (my mistake) which blew out some of the color and details so the seams got lost. Structurally, the front + rear panel + central spine...

    Yes, I will be sharing some of the results of the CFD studies later on :). I'm still running the current set of studies on the heat sink design. They should complete in a week's time. (my poor 4790k has been toiling away at it for a while now). If you're curious I'll jump into a bunch of...

    Prototype Winter One v08 -- Custom Case update. 15.4L SFF with dual 240mm radiator + Full Length GPU. CFD Goodness inside!

    Yes, right now the production schedule is a tad optimistic, but I'll adjust It as things progress. I'd rather set difficult goals and strive toward them with lots of effort, than set "safe" goals and get too complacent...

    Concept 11 liter ITX airflow simplicity

    This is a neat concept! :) I like it a lot.

    2020 Update! :D Happy New Year! Since October, I’ve been hard at work on my CFD-driven airflow focused SFFPC case. The first shots I showed you were simple concepts exploring the inner layout, and possible construction methods. The design has since evolved and matured. **I’m now ready to share...
