... in search of a simple and convenient design ...
This is a new line of cases made of steel. More strength and cheaper cost!

Case SL1 2.1L rev.1 is our smallest case! It was designed for office and multimedia tasks.
The simple case design allows you to conveniently assemble a PC in it and maintain it. The case can be hung on the monitor or on the wall using the VESA mount.
  • Size: 2.1L (187mm x 190mm x 60mm)
  • Material: Steel (1mm)
  • MB: mini-ITX (170x170mm)
  • GPU: none (integrated graphics on the CPU)
  • Cooler: up to 43mm high
  • Storage: 1 x SSD 2.5 "
    The 2.5 "thickness of the drive reduces the allowable height for the cooler.
  • PSU: pico HDPLEX DC-ATX or Dynamo Mini
    with external power supply unit 19.5V> 80-240W

______________________________________________
SL2 3.3L rev.3 is the best mini PC case with internal power supply. It was designed for the top-end Core i7 and RYZEN 5 processors with integrated graphics.
First of all, this compact case is suitable for developers for whom only the power of the CPU is important. It is also ideal for assembling a PC as a media center.

For say the SL3/4, is the HDPlex 400w DC-ATX+300w AC-DC compatible with them or is the G-Unique PSUs ideally preferred for these cases??

Your ideas are good, but you should really have a second person look over your work as a last design editing step.
For instance, the poor placement of that power button bothers me. A lot. It's not even centered.
Just a tip.

Regarding SL2, would it be better to have grills on the side of the motherboard?
If possible, maybe mounts for 40/50mm fans.

Also, wouldn't mind for the dimension to be increased a bit of space for some cable routing behind the motherboard, and maybe compatibility with stock coolers (intel&amd). I hope you would consider compatibility for stock coolers since the cases is targeted for low cost, not having to spend on 3rd party coolers would be nice.

This space could also double as space for 2.5 ssds. Though I don't think that would be of high priority since we could just use m2 drives (no cables too!).

I could understand if you dont want to since addition of a backspace (space behind motherboard) would increase cost and complexity of the design as then you are required to machine another panel too.

Maybe a bit of a buffer zone around the motherboard so on can clip cables around without them touching components on the motherboard.

Or just space for higher motherboard standoffs?

I also agree with above poster regarding the position of the switch. Though I'm not as particular as them. Doesn't need to be centered. Just shift the switch a few mm down and it would've been fine. The top edge of the switch sitting so close to the edge while being so far away from the side edge seems a bit icky.

Another comment would be the logo. I hope the logo is a metallic sticker and not a hole. Easy access to a motherboard back from outside is not a good idea. This would prevent placing the case horizontally as shown in the pictures.
I think it would be better if you moved the logo to the front panel, if you still want to make the logo a cut out hole.

Now, another idea (for another case) would be to switch the position of the psu and the motherboard. Flip the flex psu 90 degree and this would allow for space for a low profile gpu card without having too much deadspace. The space above the motherboard could be use to higher/stock cooler.
Think of silverstone ml06-e, but flex atx and the minimalist aesthetic of your design.

Do you take order for the "SL5 mx 6.9L" yet? Also which side does the GPU face on this case ?
it has a similar configuration like zaber or node 202. It uses hard pcie making the GPU face the other side (basically not the same side as CPU)
