Hope he at least keeps the usb-c. When Oculus Quest 2 comes out I'd hook it up directly to the front of the PC. Perfect VR machine. :-)

Please refer to Page 1, Post 1.


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).

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.

I have been interested in building in <10L for a while and I think this is the case I want to build in! I just spend the last 5 hours reading through 280+ pages of this forum, but I am super surprised by all of the build's development and all your guy's builds. Extremely impressed by what you guys can push the case to and it has got me sucked in! I'm excited for everyone!

yes, that’s how I fill my loop.

Nice! Anything I should know about the method that might not be obvious? Do you use the quick disconnects when draining the loop or do you add separate fittings?

Any insight or advice would be very appreciated! Thank you!

@fabio is 2 HDDs possible in the T1?
Pretty sure that even IF you find a way to securely mount a pair of 3.5" HDDs, it's going to involve 3M tape which is not going to provide vibration protection for the spinning rust.
Fine for SSDs, really bad for HDDs long term.
I'd personally recommend sticking with a case that can support them properly if you really need more storage than you can manage with M.2 and 2.5" SSDs.
That said, there ARE 4TB SSDs, Sabrent even makes one in M.2 formfactor.
If you can manage the bifurcation setup that @fabio pulled off (was totally planning to do the same by the way, just not with a 2nd GPU because I'm not CRAZY LoL) there are 6.4TB PCIe SSDs that pop up on eBay all the time for really reasonable prices.

@fabio / @Wahaha360 for the full hood off, muscle car mode, how much height do you have to clear with fans before you can fit radiators wider than 120mm?
ie, would you need 38mm fans to clear the case before mounting something ridiculous like a NexXxos Monsta?

Lurker here for about 1½ month... really looking forward to this case and now praying to be part of the small group selected to get a case. really want to get away from my current custom loop and into a smaller case. Always been a huge wish for me - Something like distroplates/lt240 is something i will be going for in this majestic case!

You mean, OFFICIALLY or IF There is just space to have them properly placed? ?
With all that you have done I'm sure you could find a way to make them officially supported

Edit: I went ahead and got out my old 3.5" HDD, and what I found is that yes, there is space for 2 3.5" HDDs if you have no fans, but they barely fit, and there is no room for cables for one of the drives. One 3.5" drive should fit and be able to have a fan installed as well, but you won't be able to use a radiator. You might also be able to fit 2 drives stacked on top of each other if mounted below the PSU, but the motherboard might get in the way. And then there's also the problem that there's no way to mount them, so good luck with that.

You're right, vibration issue making me sad

If it's easy to add holes on the bottom to properly secure the 2 hdds. although im not asking for this, i'd like to use it since i don't need any fans or rad currently. plus more options always better

I taped mine to some styrofoam to provide protection for that, you could also try using some rubber

but it's definitely not officially supported to put those HDDs in there

I'm thinking maybe there would be a way to 3d-print scaffolding for it? Any chance you could put some pictures up of this or straight up say that nothing more will fit in there so abandon all hope?

If there is physical space for it (which there seems to be per @Navic , a 3D printed bracket would work. Here is one on thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3711265

You can print them yourself or use many of the 3D printing services available.

That could work, but not in the way that it is pictured. It would have to be rotated 90 degrees, so you would attach it to one of the supports instead of two

I know there is always that guy that poses this question when HDDs are brought up, but I'll do it anyway...

Why, in this day and age, where SSDs have the capacity and the low pricing they have, would you ever want an HDD in your main build?

Let's not even put SFF in the equation, b/c that only makes this more rhetorical than it already is... it just makes no sense to me. If you have a ton of photos, film, or music... build a server PC away from your desk to save on the horrific spinning noise and case bulk, and leave all the quiet sex-appeal on your desk to the SFF cases with M.2 drives and SSDs.

I'm not telling anyone how to live their lives or anything, b/c you do you... but I have a hard time even recommending SATA SSDs anymore b/c M.2s are so well priced and have decent capacity, and all without the cable mess lol.
