I really like the modular design. The prototype made of sheet metal, right? What is the CPU cooler clearance if no water cooling is used?

Yeah sheet metal, we are still testing with the dimensions and thickness.
The case can accommodate a Air Cooler up to 52mm, the idea is fit a Cryorig C7.
I'm not totally sure yet this can change with the same space rearranging.

from the width, only 2 slot card is compatible right? that's a dealbreaker for me but it's a good design. not a fan of the vent design but it's just personal taste.

I think if you increase the width by 2.5-3 cm to accommodate 4 x 120mm fans and 70mm cooler height / more gpu height slot, it will be a hot cake. Also if you fit the 120mm fans it will edge to the psu side and help provide air flow to the psu. It adds 240 AIO options too.

Yes 2 slots, but maybe with some tweaks its possible we can make a 2.5 Slots work, without increasing the volume.

About the fans we are thinking about increasing the size to 107 to fit a better air cooler, trying to mount a slim 120mm
it's maybe a stretch of the design but i will try. I dont think will be a life changer in the temps, the 4 fans as intake
seems to be enough in simulation. But this increase the volume to 5.99L.

I will make new updates as soon some parts arrive. Thanks for the thoughts.

Fans on top and bottom , are these 92x14?
Yes, 92x14, but with the new revision the motherboard tray will be modular. The modularity will allow to use larger
cpu air coolers or larger GPUs (2.5,2.7 slots) and maybe add the possibility to use 120 slim fans on both
sides of the tray.
Soon, i will bring a big update, based on community suggestions.

Hey guys have not updated the project for a long time. But we are still working on it!
I will probably talk to an ADM to delete it and make a new one because the project has changed so much that it is practically a new chassis.

With the launch of the RTX Series 3000 the engineering part was very confused for 3 main reasons:
1- The new GPU sizes
2- The power consumption
3- The Founders Edition Air Flow Desing

READ THE BIG UPDATE IN THE FIRST POST!

And a smaller uptade here:
Hey guys, i'm with a working prototype in hand, this version v.0.09, the current prototype in production is the v.0.1 with some tweaks and corrections of this one.
But overall is a very good and efficient chassi, with an incredible build quality.
I will do further test to see thermal and noise level.

OBS: I know that SFX psus are more silent and have more power, but they bring the volume to 7.2L the same volume that the incredible Dan-A4. Maybe with some time i can use a modded server power supply to add more watts at the same volume. (NOW COMPATIBLE 29/09)

Nice build video. ?

PS: Your pliers are as rusty as mine. Perfect match with the Noctuas.
I'll do an english stream and video soon, with the updated desing and custom loop. English is not my primary language, I have a bit difficult pronouncing some words, but I think I can do it and put subtitles.

And you know... I live in a tropical paradise, everything rust ahahahahahahaha

I think subtitles should be fine. Just for explaining the most important parts. :)

Yeah, same here. Damn humidity turns everything into a Noctua color scheme. ?
