Would it be possible to have another PSU orientation where PSU fan is facing right side (in vertical position), thus making less obstruction of airflow to the cpu cooler from the front intake fan. I really like this case. It's more like upgraded SG13 with PSU in front.
We've checked it. Unfortunately it's not possible. There is no space to fit with that orientation

Nice case. Is the GPU side fit up to 3.2 slots? Since I really want to use noctua fans with deshroued GPUs like the Asus Dual 2080s or Gigabyte ones.
You can use slim fans with 2-slot gpu's. It's about 60mm for gpu thickness

I mean the deshrouded GPUs, like this 2080ti

Seems like this case has some spaces for deshrouded GPUs with 25mm fans, which is great. With up to Noctua D15 air cooler compatibility and 200m fan on the front, this will be a very good air cooling case for enthusiasts. I'm looking forward to see yours prototype.

This looks possible to fit inside our case. Our ventilated panels are arranged for 120mm fans. So you can add more fans to the case. We'll see after prototype of course. I'll inform all of you with net dimensions and clearences.

Here is customizable panels:

FRONT PANELS


RIGHT PANELS


LEFT PANELS


TOP PANELS



BACK PANEL (NOT CUSTOMIZABLE)



And here is ssd/hdd options:

We are trying to find a good manufacturer. Soon we'll have a prototype. Stay tuned guys.​

How about the bottom panel?
I imagine, the vertical Horizon is still in your game plan?
If an Horizon is set up vertically, do you simply unscrew the four feet and then screw them onto the front panel?
As I do not see dedicated 4 mounting screw holes, how do the four feet mount onto the front panel?

Bottom panel is just holding mobo and ssd at horizontal position. There is no fan mounting holes etc. on it. So it will be a solid panel. At vertical position that bottom panel will be on back. Front panel will be on it's place with magnets. When you decide to go for vertical Horizon, you'll get a screw holed front panel with expansion part. So you'll just remove the front panel from horizontal position and add new screw holed front panel from expansion part. So you'll have foot mounting holes at bottom. And you'll use the old front panel on the top. I hope that i've described it clearly :)

2 questions:-
a. what do you mean by your 2nd last sentence (ie ''And you'll use the old front panel on the top.'')
why would the old (ie horizontal position) front panel be used as the new (ie vertical position) top? I thought, the old back panel now becomes the new top, where mobo IOs is.

b. Does this ''expansion part'' standard with Horizon?

a. Back IO port will be on top for Vertical Horizon. And you will cover it with expansion part. Just look at 1st post. There are three photos that shows horizon+expansion=vertical horizon
b. Expansion part will be optional.

Any possibility that this can be shrinked to 10L? You would have a lot more people interested if that was the case.

Yes it can be arranged. But that will lower cooling performance. Our main goal is to make an sff case as cool as an atx case.

For the front, since we can support a 200mm fan, what about a 180mm (Silverstone AP181), or 2 x120??

I'd like to fit a 297mm GPU in there with a big fan.

It's only possible with 140mm for now. But we'll check for 180mm fans. Maybe we can work something out.

We've checked spaces and dimensions. Sorry it's not possible to fit 180mm fan with 297mm GPU. But you can use 140mm fan as mentioned before :)

So no possibility to mount a 180mm fan full stop? Air Penetrators are built for a case like this.
Sorry for misunderstanding. You can install 180 mm fan with 270 mm GPU. There will be two front fan brackets for this case as standart (not optional):
Fan Bracket A: Supports 200/180 mm fan 30 mm thick max. and supports 270 mm GPU
Fan Bracket B: Supports 140/120/4x80 mm fan 30 mm thick max. and supports 302 mm GPU

The question was for mounting 180 mm fan with 297 mm GPU. That's not possible. But you can use 180 mm fan with 270 mm GPU max.

D15 + 3 triple slot GPU = my dream SFF PC. Nice to see another, one of the few, case designers care about air cooling in SFF.

Do you know if the Horizon case can fit a GPU with the Arctic Accelero 3 attached?

The PSU Space is large enough to put more 2.5in hard drives under it, which stills large enough to fit with D15. Besides, for air optimization, PSU should be put beneath for the direct air flow from 200mm fan to tower coolers.
A large enough shroud could be easily handle those things.
