Cringe that he starts popping off panels without issue in a sturdy thick steel case but thinks it's meh. Luckily he turns around at the end to appreciate this gem.

I thought that.
I stared off wincing about the initial comments, but he seemed to be praising it in a fairly understated way towards the end. By then you could see how capable it was at taking all the kit and having a lot of room to spare.
He got there in the end 😀

I like Linus, but when it comes to the SFF builds he does on the channel there seems to be very little research that he does on the case. I think their writer Jake is the one that suggests all of the SFF builds and I’m sure he’s on this forum, but Linus just goes in blind and just glosses over a lot of things.

@PlayfulPhoenix Been looking at the Cerberus cases for a while. Are there any plans to do side panels with full ventilation on the Cerberus X? Wondering would make much of a difference, seeing as the GPU is mounted horizontally. It did seem to benefit the Ncase M1 though when they did that change from V5 to V6.

To be completely honest I don't know who belongs Cerberus/Cerberus-X design, either Chimera, either Sliger..:)
Only thing I know there is Cerberus-Mini (made for mini ITX MB) under development by Sliger.

@PlayfulPhoenix or @KSliger : do you expect any V.2 on either Cerberus/Cerberus-X?

On my Cerberus-X thread I've updated my first topic and added a short summary of best cooling depending on your case/needs..:)

Based on my Cerberus-X experience I wanted to sum-up best cooling setups in it :

Hello guys. I wanted to share with you my new build. What do you think? Any improvements? Thanks
Excellent build!
Love your gentle typhoon..:)

Depending on your cooling you can also add 92mm radiator on rear panel...quite effective also..:)
