You forget, smartphones seem to be getting bigger and bigger.

My what is deemed "small" 5.2" display beside a guy at works iPhone XS Max which is 6.5" my entire phone sits in his screens space.

Considering I remember when a 7" tablet seems huge its getting a bit silly now.

the tallest tale of usability ever...

That's maybe me being psycho, but the Thermaltake Tower 900 is disturbingly similar to my 1st case design, "Monolith", that I submitted for the Phobya contest @ bit-tech, in 2011....

Thermaltake Tower 900:







Monolith by me (circa 2011): http://power.zol.com.cn/215/2159987.html (backup link from the web, original article is not available anymore on bit-tech)









I might be mistaken, but there are way too many similarities (motherboard orientation, io at the top, dual chamber with dual radiator at the back, dual loop, chassis form form factor) and this is a very unique layout....

I think the tower 900 was designed by a French modder. Either way TT is notorious for being “inspired heavily” with a lot of their products.

Sassanou, in 2015, saw that while doing more research. Those similarities are really bugging me, but hell ... I'll say this is prolly just coincidence.

Guys! So I've been designing cases for a while but I'm not very good with names, especially company names. Seems like every indie case maker here has a name for themselves but I'm still left without one. Please shoot some ideas of what I could name my SFF case company. I'd be focusing mainly on 3D printed and acrylic cases.

Might do with "cc design works" if can't come up with anything better temporary. They are my initials too btw.

Most of my focus is on portable cases, similar in size to consoles. Cases that are not just for looking good in a HTPC/gaming setup at home but that you can easily take with you without being a burden.
