case SX1 6.8L rev.6
The SX1 6.8L case is the result of a long journey and a great desire to do the impossible. It was designed for high-end components such as Core i7 processors and GeForce RTX 2080 graphics cards.
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.
So we got a very compact case that will suit connoisseurs of small form factor (SFF), developers, gamers and anyone who is not ready to sacrifice a third of the table for a large PC case.

Specs:
  • Size: 305mm x 120mm x 185mm
  • Material: Steel (1mm), Aluminum (1.5mm)
  • MB: mini-ITX (170x170mm)
  • GPU: 2 slots, up to 30cm long (max 44x140mm)
  • Cooler: up to 48mm high
  • RAM: up to 55 mm high
  • FAN: 92x92x25mm
  • Storage: 2 x SSD 2.5"
    instead of a case fan
  • PSU: SFX / SFX-L *
    When installing the SFX-L power supply unit, it is possible to install only one 2.5 "data storage device.



case SX2 7.5L rev.3
SX2 7.5L the most durable and relatively inexpensive Steel case. It was designed for high-end components such as Core i7 or RYZEN 7 processors and GeForce GTX 2080 graphics cards.
The arrangement of the components according to the "Sandwich" type allows efficient cooling of the components inside the case. For additional cooling of the motherboard, a 92x92x14mm slim fan can be installed on top of the case. Such blowing of radiators on the chipset and VRM zone is recommended when installing Asetec AIO.

Specs:
  • Size: 308mm x 122mm x 200mm
  • Material: Steel (1mm)
  • MB: mini-ITX (170x170mm)
  • GPU: 2 slots, up to 305mm long (max 44x145mm)
  • Cooler: up to 48mm high
  • Radiator: 95x115x34 + fan 92x92x15mm
  • RAM: up to 55 mm high
  • FAN: 1x 92x25mm under PSU and 1x 92x15mm over MB
    We recommend to additionally purchase Grill grills for fans
  • Storage: 1 x 2.5 "
    instead of a case fan or AIO under the power supply
  • PSU: SFX / SFX-L *
    * when installing AIO radiator only SFX!

Do you have a render showing component layout? Struggling to see how the PSU cables are managed.

Good work, loving the effort.

How does this go together…?

Seems like the area where the PSU goes would be under a good bit of strain with the PSU just hanging there until everything is assembled & buttoned up…?

Where does the 2.5" SSD go, and what are the thickness limitations of same; single 7mm, dual 7mm, single 15mm…?

So, front power button & USB; what about the audio I/O…?

Looking forward to seeing a prototype model; a build video of same would be extra awesome…!

Model in the first post updated.

Totally awesome. This is promising!
I like the front side facing USB 3 ports. Is there any room up top to install some hot-air exhaust fans?
SFX & 287mm GPU under 6 litres. No room for anything :)

Shhh. I'm sure you thought of the layout yourselves :) Is the right-angled PSU extension cable included with the case?

Yes, included.

Also, any plans for a plastic sheet divider (you know, like in the A4) to prevent components from shorting out on each other…?

So, I can use a PSU I already have, AND I can do so in the smallest chassis possible…?

I am definitely down for one unit from Batch #2…! It will be a birthday present to myself…!

Case looking excellent! Questions:

1. Are rounded corners for the front plate an option?

2. Would a drilled-hole venting design (similar to the DAN A4-SFX) be possible?

3. Could the power button be moved to the rear of the case?

3. What is maximum gpu depth with/without backplate? 40/45mm?

4. Like the NCase M1 and Dan A4-SFX, would you do a sticker or plate with the case name, batch run, and production no.# on the rear of the case?

Thanks sergiiua!

1. Are rounded corners for the front plate an option?

No, our partner (ESI METAL factory) can't do this now.

2. Would a drilled-hole venting design (similar to the DAN A4-SFX) be possible?

Yes, I'll add this option in order form.

3. Could the power button be moved to the rear of the case?

Yes, we can do this as free option :)

3. What is maximum gpu depth with/without backplate? 40/45mm?

Yes, 40/45mm

4. Like the NCase M1 and Dan A4-SFX, would you do a sticker or plate with the case name, batch run, and production no.# on the rear of the case?

Yes, we can do this as free option :)

I was just about to marvel over this case again but the links to the images are now broken?

I'll fix photos in a few hours ;)
