Introduction and Background​

Hello friends!😻

I am a SFF lover and have been paying attention to different chassis designs in the past few years. Vertical ITX case is my personal favorites. Since most of them are full of mesh panel and I don't like mesh so much personally. So I tried to design a case by myself. The case idea is try my best to reduce mesh panel and try not to affect thermal performance. Also try to keep appearance simple. Now I would like to show you my design concept.


Design goal:
  • All I/O on one side
  • Think out of the box
  • Vertical design
  • Vertical Airflow
  • Less mesh panel (doesn't like mesh panel personally)

  • Good Thermal Performance
  • Modular
  • Clean and Simple

✨Thank you for reading this post. This is the beta v0.2 version of JKase. Thermal performance looks very good and far exceeded my expectations. Seems this case still need to be improved. If you have any idea or suggestion just feel free to let me know. 😻 Hope you enjoy it.
