Original design is very beautiful:


But I would like to add a ultra saving model (T1-US-B/S) for the one who want to save more for a premium case.
This model (T1-US-B/S) price may be 299$, 275$ or 249$.
Please take your time to vote here : Vote
Or you can send feedback right bellow.
Thank you!

I like it, it is an aftermarket chassis for building your own enthusiast version of the Corsair One, with what looks to be better cooling...!?!

Even different layout, its visual look like a Corsair one, Especial the art top cover, like a man head with short hair. I like that.
However, in ultra saving version. I may remove it and change to flat one. It costs much higher that flat one.

Looks pretty sweet, excited to see how the thermal testing goes.
We are going to make test plan for many configuration, example Air cooling/Water cooling with Pentium, Core i none K, Core i K, Core i K OC, Xeon 14-22 Cores, Some AMD..., information will be updated in website and this thread.
Bellow is the test result with Pentium G5500, 26C ambient temperature, Air cooling with big rakuten V2. Single noctua 3000rpm case fan, Fan running 90% and 40% in each test:
90% Fan speed
40% Fan speed

Too low quantity of registered members.
To bring you the very good price for a premium case above the require MOQ is 500 sets. So we may have to slow down project speed.

You might want to try soliciting the project on hardforum and r/sffpc as well. Also, further testing to show thermal performance, and getting 1 or 2 review samples into the hands of reputable tech youtubers will build a strong following. 500 units is pretty doable, but you gotta get the word out first.

You are going through the exact same situation as I did when developing Steck. You are already doing very well by managing to get moq of 500 from factory. Don't expect KS or other crowdfunding platform will help in sff case kind of project. The sweet spot for KS and others are around USD50-60 ticket price, which is not going to happen for a sff case. (only Louqe managed it so far, and don't think they have done sff creators any favors in terms of giving backers confidence...?)

So how do you get your funding? For me, I decided to invest the money myself to make the product in advance, and yes, you need to have certain confidence and believe in it before you can do that. It is a gamble for sure. First 500 you probably just going to break even if you are lucky. I don't know about partnering with the big boys (Lian Li etc). I don't know those guys so I just went on different path.

I know, I would find some other sources, I am preparing marketing material, but I hope each source quantity pass 10%. In this case, I think people should take long time to upgrade their case.

This is a CNC machining case, totally different with bending type case. For example, prototype costs may be 100 times more than bending one.
It is a gamble like Bitcoin for sure.
I did not see a CNC case from Lian Li or almost other big boys.

Anyway, this is good case and good design, I believe It will be successful even take long time.

Yes, you are going to use different methods in production. I am just saying setting up to make PC case in general involves initial costs, and even more for CNC, not that bending is cheap either (well, all depends how much investment one is willing and can afford to pay up front). It is difficult to get that funding from outsiders from the start. And I am just saying don't bother with crowdfunding, but prepare to cough up your own money at the start, or you will be spending lots of time chasing shadows.

yeah an update would be sweet. I love the look of this case and it would be perfect for my current build thats currently sitting in a Silverstone Lucid LD03
