I could consider it, but not before finishing this one. Thanks for showing me that case it does look very nice.What do you think about making a second revision with a dual chamber design and mATX/ATX motherboard support, like the TX Aio cases from Custom Mod?
case TX1 aio 18L rev.1.0 prototype Specs: - Volume: 18L (320mm x 345mm x 165mm) - Material: Steel frame (1mm), aluminum covers (1.5mm), Powder Coating - MB: ATX - GPU: lengthsmallformfactor.net
I would be wildly interested if you made that an option, Shouldn't require too much extra modeling since the design is very similar (atleast it looks like it to me).
Looking forward to it, I really like your design and the layout of the TX cases seems amazing for me, I find myself missing some of the things that larger mobos offer more and more lately and would still like to keep the volume low.I could consider it, but not before finishing this one.

Thanks! I really do want to make a production batch but it is difficult to commit my personal budget to even a small quantity of units.I really like this case, both the design and the ideas!
Wanna have one! I will keep my eye on this if you ever plan on the first small batch.
It's possible, but I don't want to do that. The radiator pretty much abuts to the front panel where there is no vents, so even if I extended the whole case by 25mm for two more 120mm fans in the front, pretty much half of The fans will be blocked off anyway. I don't think the size increase warrants it especially since the airflow improvement wouldn't even be that much. Besides that would make the total fan count 6, I don't think you can plug in that many into any itx motherboard and a fan hub will consume valuable space.Just a thought, but could you extend the hole pattern on the front to the edge and allow for 2x 120mm fan mounts? Maybe also the extend the length of the case a bit so the fans don't interfere with the GPU and side fans/rad?
Thanks! I am myself apprehensive about the grey. It looked really nice in my head but the real thing is letting me down a little. Do you think it would be better if it was a darker grey? Like the color of a reference 5700xt shroud? That what I was aiming for originallyLooking good!! I love the white and black! Grey is nice too, but not really my color. Soo excited to see this come to fruition!!
Maybe it's just the lighting. It looks very flat and matte(on my phone, albeit it's got a good screen lol). But it might look better in person.Thanks! I am myself apprehensive about the grey.

Perhaps if I ever end up with a production run I will reduce the color choices to just white and black. Or maybe I will still paint over this light grey with a darker shade.
Hey thanks for the links to the thread. I do like that darker grey quite a lot. At the same time this lighter grey is growing on me a lot. I don't think it looks great alone but it looks really good with the walnut because it's actually a pretty light wood with a lot of orange tones. I think it would look great with full copper heatsinks/waterblocks.Maybe it's just the lighting. It looks very flat and matte(on my phone, albeit it's got a good screen lol).

I believe a darker gray would look better. Something like the "space grey" of apple. The only issue is that you are powder coating and powder coating will never be able to achieve the smooth metallic sheen of Apple's space grey. It would be awesome to see. I know @grsychckn is prototyping his s402 is a nice dark grey, and I think he is powder coating too, perhaps he can help you narrow down to the same/similar color to see if it is more you your liking.
Hi, I'm still hesitating between a lot of cases for a build I would make in january, If I'm looking for something easily transportable in a medium / large backpack for frequent flight travels would you recommend a s401 or a s402 (or is the 401 never going to be produced again?)

I believe this is the Cardinal color. Perhaps @grsychckn can confirm? https://smallformfactor.net/forum/t...9l-steel-console-style-case.10939/post-182130
