@AlexTzone I assume that the final production version will be made with casting instead of CNC? if so, have you had any samples of the cast version made? i think it is rather misleading that you're showing CNCed version of the case instead of the cast version. tolerances between CNC and cast is vastly different
The relevant discussion is on Page 53, but in short the production models are going to be CNCed as well indeed because of the tolerances. And so the prototypes are representative.

Noobie here but been reading up on this project for the last couple of days. Hopefully not asking a stupid question, but was wondering...I've read up on the thermal tests you've done (which is awesome that you have that already as reference) and I was wondering if the internal frame would allow a top mounted exhaust fan for those looking to maybe create a negative pressure type cooling solution with top/bottom mounted exhaust fans?

Thanks in advance and I'm super looking forward to this!

You can flip the core to have the "bottom" fans on the top (and therefore as a top exhaust). The stock top panel will allow for some ventilation but for maximum airflow I would consider putting the bottom panel in the top (they are the same mount so this is possible).

There are no stupid questions friend! Check out the answer by @For_Science , it's on point.

The strange feeling when @For_Science knows more about your product than you do yourself XD

Hi Alex since the reverse bottom panel was mentioned today, it reminded me to ask you. Now that the top panel is asymmetric ( I believe that the notch on the part that screws in only goes to about half way of the panel). Is there a way to either peel off or remove the filter off the filtered bottom panel and attach it to the reverse side?

For purely aesthetic reasons, I would like to have the top panel to be the mesh side rather than the "skeleton side" when it is on the visible top part. Hopefully my poor gimp images illustrate what I would like:

Current Implementation: Skeleton Outside


My ideal: Mesh on outer surface

It's a perfect design.

The adhesive needs to be more airtight.

Are you going to flatten the adhesive with a cnc?

The surface is smooth, but there is a clear line at the interface.

Oh, you've already mentioned this.


I didn't see it because I didn't renew the page.

Mjolnir comes with your choice of side panels. However, there is no mesh option. The choice is between slotted aluminum or tempered glass. Getting the 2X package means you get two sets of either aluminum or glass panels. (1 set of each is probably what most people will do.)

The filter mesh is going to be glued to the frame, so if you can "unglue" it (say a heat gun) than yes. However, since the filter is made of plastic it may melt if you're not careful. You don't dig those MJOLNIR abs?? 💪 💪

Minior correction: the 2X panel set is actually Performance Panels + Tempered Glass Panels (i.e. not a choice). Will make this clearer in the campaign :)

I would be interested in a version with one window panel and one performance panel. Have you considered this?

Also, I'd like to know the total price with shipping to Switzerland (for the Mjolnir S).

You can do that by getting MJOLNIR S + 2X Panel Sets :) It's to expensive for us to do single panel mixes :/

MJOLNIR S to Switzerland
- Shipping & taxes = $82.65

@AlexTzone

How is the glass panel attached to the metal frame? Got me thinking if it is removable that one could think of modding it to make a nice mesh side panel too.

PS The abs were not a look that I favor :p. It's also technically better for dust management since you won't get accumulation on the corner interface between the skeleton and the filter.

It's glued on :) You can probably use a heat gun without damaging the tempered glass panels.

thanks.
does this include the 7.7% vat of Switzerland as well as import duties?
Yes sir, all them taxes, VATs and duties! ;)
