Increase volume from 9.8L to 10.5L to support MSI Suprim X 30XX?

  • Yes, worth the trade off to be more compatible with components

    Votes: 31 15.7%
  • No, not worth it b/c it is not better than the ROG 30XX, which fits now at <10L

Wow, 24 hours away from the thread and there's something like 5+ pages. I'm almost as excited for the continued development of accessories as I am of the case itself. The Distro plate is looking fantastic and I really appreciate the hiding of the screws.

Well I kind of regret not making an account/posts back during the test shipping because I saw more qualified candidates for Canada.
Regardless, I'm willing to wait for this case, since it suits my needs so much better than the Ghost S1, the other case I was looking at.

I've built my case, uploaded some photos, filled in the survey. But after that nothing happened, just enjoying my build. Hope I didn't fall short of admins/producers' sympathy. ?

Been following the SFF scene, and came across videos optimum tech did on the FormD T1 and absolutely fell in love. Been building PCs as a hobby since 2009, my current build is in an NZXT h210 and it looks like a giant compared to proper SFF. Hope to make this my first SFF build! Thanks!

Any ideas on how to fit Two 3.5" HDD in this case? guessing i'll just not have fans in this case lol, if it's even possible to get one when it becomes available.

You can't fit 2 HDDs in this case, at best 1 SSD behind the front panel

You mean, OFFICIALLY or IF There is just space to have them properly placed? ?
If you can fit a 25mm fan you can fit a 3.5" HHD. Mounting is another story. Will be cool when people start producing custom mounting that can be 3D printed.

Another place would be in the GPU side. Depending on the length of your card you could probably put a drive there and not sacrifice your fan mount area.

Just for sharing...

My build specs:
intel skylake 6600 + noctua L12S
gigabyte h170n-wifi
zotac gtx 1070ti mini
ram 16gb DDR4 2133mhz
corsair sf600 platinum
m.2 SSD x 1
2.5 inch SSD x 1
3.5 inch HDD x 1 (yes, i put it in, why not?)

*Temporary system - problem with Ryzen 3600 system

riser installation: i believe i got it right this time... i hope...

Note: need to decide from start whether to flip the case or not if using L12S, because the cooler fins will not fit in horizontal orientation, ideally the heat pipes orientation need to be from bottom going upwards

Yes, there's a 3.5 inch drive there, why not?
Note: fan touching the side panel because the GPU is not perfectly straight, had to put some pads

Note: for 2.5 inch SSD, ideally use 90 degree cable for both sata & power

Weirdly... I'm not a RGB fan but now i wish there's a bit more RGB goodness...

During the build, i realized how each piece is carefully designed to be modular, functional
It's not just an amazing case, it's art
The things missing now: the custom power switch for T1 and some custom cables

Thanks for this amazing product! Hopefully stock will be constantly available for others

Looking forward to see how others build theirs
@fabio is 2 HDDs possible in the T1?

One of the test shipper had a build where he managed to install a 3.5" HDD (unofficially) at the bottom (without a 240 rad), you can take a look at the 3rd picture he posted.

Has anyone tried the "quick disconnect method" to fill their small form factor loop? Optimum Tech mentioned it in one of his videos that he was waiting for specific quick disconnects to try it out but then ended up not doing it.

I assume it works by having two sets of disconnects, one in your loop and then the other set attached the reservoir. You attached the reservoir and fill up the loop normally, then you disconnect the reservoir and reattach the two ends of the quick disconnects. Completely filled and bleed loop without needing to have a reservoir permanently in your system.

Anyone have any tips or advice about whether to use this method?

yes, that’s how I fill my loop.

Update 2019-07-18 : USB-C and SD Card Front I/O for those so curious

As far I know this was just in the render and it's not decided if it's gonna happen, so at the moment there is no I/O on the case itself (apart form the board I/O on the back obviously).
The Front I/O controller will requires a controller which makes it as expensive as a USB-C hub, and I might just drop it - will decide after Computex, it’s low priority atm.
Also there are not many itx boards that have got an usb-c header anyway.
Everything else, like measurements and recommended parts you can find in the first post or search this thread.
