Hello everyone !

Presentation :


I am Aymeric and the founder of AUXOS, after 2 years of development I am delighted to present to you my project AUXOS INVEKTOR-ONE. The result is not finalise yet and that is why I’m looking forward to hear your thoughts on this, opinions, recommendations and any questions you have in mind.



*Because of its rigidity, it can easily support a screen on top of it when it’s flat.

Specs :


1.0
Dark
30mm Type B premium PCIe x16 Riser Cable from Li-Heat
mini-ITX (170 mm x 170 mm)
38 mm (H)
37 mm (H)
Flex-ATX 150 mm x 81.5 mm x 40.5 mm (L-H-W)
268.5 mm x 130 mm x 42 mm (L-H-W)
2.5 (inch)
325 mm x 274,5 mm x 57,5 mm (L-H-W)
5.1 Liters
Aluminium (1.5 mm)
Unibody


The Agenda :


- the official website of the AUXOS brand.
- prototype number 2 (correcting some technical problems and aesthetic improvement).
- rendering the computer in computer-generated images in order to have a better overview.
- I will be creating voting polls to gather more feedbacks. Please stay tune for more updates on my forum. Would greatly appreciate your participation.

This looks amazing. Couple of questions: How much do you think it will cost? What is the maximum size for the psu? Can you use a non-blowerstyle graphics card?

Thanks for your feedback.

- The case will be sold around 220 $.

- For power supply, the maximum size is 150 mm x 81.5 mm x 40.5 mm (L-H-W).

- All graphics cards are compatible as long as it does not exceed 268.5 mm x 130 mm x 42 mm (L-H-W), for example the RTX 2080 TI founder edition is compatible.

Is there a possibility that you can sell the case with a psu included? I live in the Nethetlands and it's pretty hard to find a flex-atx psu here.

Great looking design Aymetal!

Quick question for you, where did you stash the 2.5in drive, behind the PSU? Or is it in the picture and I'm just failing at "where's Waldo?"

nice. When will this case be ready? Any estimate?
Thank you.

I intend to launch crowdfunding at the end of the year 2019.

while PSU height is max 40,5mm, I'd guess, it will stay under PSU.
Yes that's right, the 2.5 inch drive is under Flex-ATX power supply.

I'm looking forward to updates, as this is an impressive case.

That CPU cooler support looks tight, so t-series chip will be preferable.

Overall very cool, but "world's smallest gaming case" is a bit of a misnomer, as there are one that are far smaller with full sized GPU support.

Love the look of it, I was designing a case with a very similar layout for my personal use and it doesn’t look nearly as clean as your. Great job!

Nothing wrong, I'm a long time i7-4785T user and a T-series CPU worshiper !
I was wondering why you were triggered.

We need a T-Series master race thread, and all true intel t-series users should subscribe to t-series on youtube.

(I'm sorry, but not that sorry. XD)

Getting off topic but I agree with @Windfall about the t-chip thread. When I first looked into buying one, I was scared to death I was going to “lose out” on performance by buying a t chip. After I bought it I was happy my fears were unfounded. I wouldn’t mind posting some benchmarks if one were added here to discuss them.

Anyways back to the case, I do have a question. I know it’s been a challenging process to get this far in your case, but one thing irks me. I prefer having all cables that hook up to the tower be on one side of the tower. In the beginning, did you look at any ways of attempting to add a power cord for the psu on the same side as the gpu/mobo? And if so what guided you to follow thru with this design?

I’m guessing size constraints, but would love to hear your input on that.

That's definitely a totally reasonable price. Didn't know they can make the riser cards 30mm height.

Compared to the PC I designed this one will save a lot of headache. I'm also losing space due to the frame.

I did use a LAZER3D front I/O so GPU size did have have to be sacrifuced

I will totally buy this just because it's super clean.

Only if I had a CNC machine to be worth the time to redesign my case

Edit: oh I thought you used a non flexible riser cable. My biggest issue with my setuo was getting the right riser

I still specify that the NH-L9a-AM4 and NH-L9i remains compatible, so it is entirely possible to install a processor up to 95 TDP like a i7-8700k in the silence.

For me, the choice was obvious because having all the connections at hand allows comfort equal to an externals controller hub (https: //www.youtube.com/watch?v=PpXOvjavjWc). Knowing that the case can be passed under your screen, you have nothing around, just the computer with it's USB ports on the side (Type-C why not), it's audios jacks and the connection GPUs that can be used to connect directly to your virtual reality headsets. Some go so far as to put their computer upside down to enjoy the multitude ports of motherboard and GPU.

I hope I have answered your question as much as possible. I plan very soon to provide a 3D rendering of the computer on a desk in order to best express its advantages.
