last minute title change lol

layout wise, looks similar to the hutzy xs, but i like how the ssd cover up the pci slot, looks much cleaner.

Very nice. I'm concerned about the noise of those Flex ATX PSUs with 40mm fans though.
What's a standard mini-ITX PSU by the way ?

You could put an had plex in the psu bay and go that route possibly.

49.99 case
28.50 shipping
Need a riser for gpu so approx 30.00

Just over 100 or so USD to get it in hand. Give or take.

I've read that before but I'm giving this one the benefit of the doubt, because it's being built with aluminum extrusions so it should be stronger.

I'm tempted to pull the trigger on a pre-order, could be good for a case modding project.

I got the ITX test bench from GEEEK and was not very impressed with it, it wasn't very thoughtfully designed. Without going into too much detail or giving the company a very hard time... I paid $15 for it and it was functional.

This case includes its PCI-e extension cable and is priced at $50. It's pretty incredible value even if it ends up having flimsy build quality. The preorder bonuses make the value even higher, it's hard to understate that at the price point.

On principle, I like that GEEEK is able to make the offerings they do at the low price point they make. If you want the loving attention to detail and top-notch build quality, you should be looking at custom case projects on here. ;)

I don't think the pcie cable is included.

All acrylic is so bad for static discharge / ESD, RIP motherboard. And no riser included doubles that price.

Good looking design though.

I agree with every word of this so much, on top of liking it, I felt like writing this :)

honestly, I don't understand why would anyone consider going with 1u power supply. It's not worth it for going 1 inch shorter and have a crazy loud power supply for the lifespan of the build. We are suppose to make small form factor better, not worse.

You could use anything that would fit in there, I suppose. Maybe stuff a AC power brick in that space, or go with a Meanwell 400W PSU if you want to wire everything yourself.

Somehow I misread that as "includes." I've been running on E for a bit, sorry!

The value is definitely a lot weaker without the riser included, though I personally have gotten lucky with cheaper risers myself.

I would have never known acrylic is bad for ESD--where I live ESD is pretty much never an issue with electronics.
