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: 65 19.8%
  • No, not worth it b/c it is not better than the ROG 30XX, which fits now at <10L

Will the ncase layout be able to support a gpu like the EVGA 3080 FTW3?

Not in the M1 layout, have to make the case much bigger, even bigger than M1 to do so.

Will support EVGA 30XX FTW3 in the Sandwich / A4 layout, just get the PCIe 4.0 riser option. If you can afford and get your hands on the EVGA 3080 FTW3, I don't feel bad for you.

2021-07-21: T1 V1.5 Progress Update​


Added 280mm Radiator support, specifcally HWL Nemesis 280GTS. The reason to add this feature is for the upcoming T1 EPYC / Threadripper build.

Due to the longer tubing length, 280 AIO is *not recommended, b/c fitting it in will likely be a nightmare. This is why there are not many, if any, <10L cases that will support 280 radiator or AIO.

How can it be possible? I mean is it meant to be on the side? And if so... what fans are we going to use?

I dont have the T1, so I´m not familiarised with the measurements, but if one put a 280 rad on the top of the case ... this would force the case to be a bit wider no? I remember the problems at the begining with radiator support because of how slim the case is, and some 240 radiators that had more width were not compatible (nemesis 240 gts was one of them)

Which fans one would use with a 280mm radiator? There aren't that many slim 140mm fans and most (all?) of them use 120mm mounting pattern.

I think it might be side mounted only, because I cannot see how it would fit in the top where most people put the radiator.

Hopefully we can get some clarification.

Sorry, I’ve never seen the website other than « opening soon ! » Is it possible to order like a titanium color with a black mesh ?

The website only opens when there is a batch going live. You can check here or the r/FormD subreddit to see when drops will happen.

People have ordered a titanium with black mesh in the past, but it depends on what is available during that drop.

So I believe the HWL Nemesis 280GTS rad should sit over the GPU side with the Cryorig XT140 slim fans and with a HWL Nemesis 240GTS XFLOW rad on top?
Please confirm if this setup works.

I have so many questions, but this is very exciting to hear.

Main question: is it that only the 280GTS was test fit? Or is there something about its ports or other physical features that makes it unique?

Main reason I ask is because WTF they're not available anywhere like just about everything these days. But Corsair's Hydro series XR5 is supposedly the same core as HWL's 30mm 280 rad, right? And not only is it more readily available, but it's also a smidgen less wide than 280GTS so... good news for potential fitment?

Thermaltake Luna 14 Slim is the only slim 140mm fan with 140mm mounting that I could find. Sadly it's discontinued and the specs are pretty terrible.
I guess zip-tying P12 Slim to 280 GTS is an option 😂, or duct-tape to prevent air leakage.

@Wahaha360 This might not be possible but in the A4 layout for air cooling, is it possible to make the rad section modular? I guess it ends up looking like the Acat x pro with rails also on top so that fans can go on the top and bottom and the power button and plug outlet can be swapped on the top. I don't think the Acat x pro actually does this though, it just looks like it could. It's minor but it leaves the l12s in an optimal position and the entire case doesn't have to be flipped, as well as additional 2 fans for optimal sandwich cooling.
