It's funny: My brother is staying up all night to help watch over some things at church. He said he was going to bring his laptop. Someone else, last year, brought his big honking desktop and two monitors. So, my brother said something like, "I can see why mini ITX has its appeal." I took the opportunity to preach the good news of cases like this one. One day, he'll take the bait...

This would be perfect for building a Hackintosh with a LP AMD card since it has native OS support. Running a Deskmini now and the Intel IGPU is...finicky.

That's odd. Aren't there loads of Macs using Intel iGPUS, including the current iMacs which use the 6 and 8 core Coffee Lake cpus? I'm not too familiar with Hackintoshes, but I would assume that Intel iGPUs would be one of the best supported parts of the build?

You are right. I'm still on Kaby Lake i7. Still, a discreet Radeon would be much better for pro apps.

Great case, can't wait to order one.
How about some vent holes in the front to mount 2 x 80mm fans blowing across the CPU/board and vent out the back?

No. It would have to increase in size, 20mm at least, and ruin a clean front. Besides, a top flow cooler does not need for intake and does just fine. I also can't afford multiple SKUs.

Wow, what CAD software is this?
Fusion 360 built in render.

Awesome!

I cannot see the supported gpu dimensions on the first post. Or does LP gpu have a standard dimension?

I would love to see a version of this case without the expansion slots but still enough room for the flex psu and same cooler height. Would be a great APU build case.

Just out of curiosity, can it be slimmer, like 85mm-ish? 80mm fans, flex psu at 81mm.. what made it thicker? Steel bend radius i guess?

GPU height. I can drop it off by 1.6mm by using shorter standoffs (6.4mm instead of 8.4) but that would be the most I can do. Short stand off the gpu height is 82mm. Add 2 for some tolerance. I'll be using small foam strips to clamp down on the gpu to keep it in place.
