Hey may I ask, I got this Card:


with this Block:


it is said to be totally 160mm from terminal to PCIE connection. Is there gonna be any luck with it to fit in this case ? 😅😅
I have the same GPU block thats roughly close to yours which is 155mm in height. Hopefully we could a 3d file to mock up it 😂

Here is a concept for the new A3 i am working on. The final case will be between 22 and 25L.



Sry for the bad quality on the mesh parts. Its a screenshot out of solid works. Also the feets arent final.

Looks inspired by Fractal Design North (a good thing).
It probably wasn't easy giving up <20L. I'm sure it's for better airflow (eg bottom/top fans).

This could be the smallest matx case with few compromises, compared to the now very popular Asus AP201.

The only thing is that I expected it to be on sale sometime in March/April. That doesn't seem very likely now.

Will there be 3D file for this where we can mockup some parts :) kinda like what ssupd meshilicious provided.

I liked the original feet much more. They were very aesthetically pleasing.

I was eagerly awaiting the sub 20l a3-matx case to succeed ones like Sama IM01 for the longest time. 22-25l can't be considered sff, completely strips away its original charm imo.

I understad your critic, but in this project i do not make the requirements for supported hardware.

Hi @dondan will this support ASRock's GENOAD8UD-2T/X550 for EPYC 9004?

Looks better than the original design! I love it! No worries about the slightly larger size than the og design, I think it needs to be more feature full than small.

I like the extra size and the front of the case,
But I don't love the mesh. Also, I wish the seam between the side and top/bottom panles was on the top and bottom and not the sides.

Absolutely love the new design and the mesh. Glass side panels are so over done, this looks great with mesh! Excited to buy one!
