As a long time fan of this forum and being heavily inspired by other creators, I have managed to convince my final year lectuerers to allow me to create a SFF PC Case! Exciting I know! Based on their advice and my own limited background...
I was asking around about radiator sandwiching. The idea of getting more thermal headroom without having to compromise more space sounded pretty good until I started looking into the specifics. Apparently there was a lot of talk on this subject some 4-6 years ago and since then there hasn't been...
PIO boards like this one specifically. I would think having an angled PCI-e slot to forego the need for riser cables would be a net benefit for many & offer some interesting small form factor designs.
I imagine case designs would be laid out much like the Skyreach S4 Mini, but in using a PIO...
Hey everyone! This took way too long to do and it isn't close to being done but I made up a little site which I will be maintaining specifically for case design within FreeCad. The first tutorial I have published revolves around mod cubes and I have plans to cover 3D Printed mounts and Cases, as...

I'm currently working on a custom pc, and in many of the designs I see there is U shaped holes along the side of the chassis. Do you know what these are? Are they important?

I made this case about 2 years ago and sold a dozen in China, after several version upgrade, this is a pretty solid design already, I do not want do any case business(customer service is sucks, and do not really make money), thus I put this case open source.

I'm fairly new to custom cases, but I'm ready to start my first project. What case modeling software would you guys recommend and where can I get it; it would also be nice to know how much it is.
Also due to me being new to modeling, what would you recommend for me to learn first; or just trial...
I'm trying to work out the best layout I can come up with for a microATX, which will have at least 2x 2.5" bays for SSD's, at least 1x 3.5" bay for a HDD, and preferably if possible a 5.25" bay for optical drive for installing things (or for a fan controller if I so choose). The last in the list...
Hello fellow designers!
I have been to the forum for while, but never really shown the project here. FPS-CASE1 has been out there for few years. It's a simple custom made mITX enclosure that also fits ATX power supplies and wide graphics cards.
The case was...
The following is an excerpt from @Necere 's post detailing the different considerations for the NCASE microATX case project thread on HardForum. It's specific to designing a mATX case but much of the information is useful for anyone designing a SFF case.
To start off, this is a rundown of the...
