Can you help me find my ideal case?

So I was talking to Michael from Velkase about a custom case, and it was all going really well until I found out the case I wanted was looking to be $1000 plus shipping, which is just way too much for me.

What I'm after is actually not that complex, it just seems to be impossible to find.
  • 2 x 140mm intake mounts
  • 2 x 80mm exhaust mounts
  • 130mm CPU cooler support
  • 230mm GPU support
  • SFX PSU mount
It's ends up being a 12.5L external volume tower case, but I cannot find anything like this anywhere.

Does anyone know of anything that has these features that isn't too expensive?

How about this one?


Deng Workshop's F15 (with internal layout similar to M1). 330 x 178 x 265 (15.6L). Price is ¥999 (which is about US$ 148)
  • 2 x 140mm intake mounts at case bottom
  • 1 x 92mm exhaust mount at case rear (or 2 x 60mm from my estimate)
  • 150mm CPU air cooler support
  • 320mm GPU support
  • SFX PSU mount
Details in its Taobao link:

If you prefer front intake fans, and if you can accept 120mm fans instead of 140mm, then Sunmilo's T02 Pro (300 x 170 x 280, 14.3L) is also an option. It has dual 80mm rear exhaust fans too.
Its price is ¥949 (which is about US$ 141)

  • 2 x 120mm intake mounts at case front
  • 2 x 80mm exhaust mount at case rear
  • 2x 120mm fans at case bottom
  • 135mm CPU air cooler support
  • 272mm GPU support. 272 - 25 (or 30) = 247~242 mm if a front fan is used in the lower position.
  • SFX/SFX-L PSU mount

I should just open a private chat with you directly lol, you have provided solutions to my last like 3-4 queries haha
I got the Silver Arrow 130 in the end after you pointed it out haha

That case looks like it would very easily support 140mm fans with some light modding by the look of it

I wish we had easier access to the Chinese market, they definitely come up with some unique and varied cases.
