Here it is, the new MINI case!
case MINI 3.6L rev.7
MINI 3.6L is the most compact and lightweight aluminum case. It was designed for components such as Core i7 processors and GeForce GTX 1660ti graphics cards. The components are powered by an external power supply unit and an internal pico PSU.
The arrangement of the components according to the "Sandwich" type makes it possible to take cold air from outside the case and drive it up. In this way, overheating of the components can be avoided even without additional blowing from the case fans.

Specs:
  • Size: 107mm x 186mm x 183mm
  • Material: Aluminum (1mm); Steel (1mm)
  • MB: mini-ITX (170x170mm)
  • GPU: up to 178mm long
  • Cooler: up to 40mm high
  • RAM: up to 55 mm high
  • PSU: pico PSU
    For example HDPLEX DC-ATX
    or pico Dynamo Mini
    with external power supply unit 19.5V> 180-240W
    Also any other pico PSU

I know that this design is based around using a g-unique unit, but is there any chance of maybe having a design using an hdplex psu instead? I know it would make it a bit bigger, but it would add many more options and maybe appeal to more people. I am and I also think some other people are nervous about gurys stuff since it appears he can be hard to reach.

why it is difficult to get? it can be ordered together with the enclosure.

I agree with loader963. While the G-Unique can be ordered with the system, having the option to use an HDPlex, Dynamo from KMPKT, or other PicoPSU would allow for more variation.

suppose someone wants to change their configuration down the road. G-Unique PSUs are not modular, and typically the wires are made to an exact length which does not leave room for change.

It's not a knock against your case design, as these are amazing and the iterations shows your passion for component cramming. That being said, it would expand the audience to allow for alternate pico power supply units.

I love the style of case and I know Gury is very smart, it’s just I get nervous reading from his customers. It is a good thing you do offer the case and psu in a bundle. When will you have the estimated prices, photo album, and case options up?

HDPlex also allows for a wider range of external brick options because of its wide voltage support.

The prototype looks beautiful. Really happy to see you continuing to refine your cases. This is mighty tempting.

Will this 3.2L version support the Gigabyte 1070/1080 and the MSI 1070?

I don't think HDPlex can realistically fit in either version of this case, but what about the Dynamo 360?

no. for this case there will be a larger case. volume of 3.7L

what it is? is there a specification? Can the sizes? blueprints? give 3d model ...

@sergiiua,

So i’ve been using the mini 4L ver 4.0 if i’m not mistaken for about 6 months now and I do have a recommendation after all these months. If you haven’t done so in the versions after mine, I would put better feets then the small rubbery ones that are on version 4.0. The glue on them didn’t stick for very long.

Since you already put small round holes at the bottom, I figure you could use that to put feets that you can screw instead of glue. You could even put that as an extra option and leave it to the person ordering it.

Thank you for your advice.

you are right about the legs on the glue is not a good idea. we already go to the screw connection.

Wow. I sent you an e-mail asking you for photos of the 3.2L model - that's only because, for some reason, my web browser did not load the Imgur library in your original post. Now that I see it - yep, this is exactly what I want. =) Really looking forward to this, it'll be worth the wait.

Please do let us know when you're ready to take orders for it.
