As an owner of an L2, this thing is just an awesome revision of the chassis. Question for you Lone, would you ever consider doing an Vesa Bracket system for the L5? Maybe even a double bracket that allows the case to be mounted to both the monitor and a monitor arm?

I think that would be slick! Anyways keep up the good work man, it's always a pleasure to see you keep creating!

Not at this time. If it's something that's important to you, I would create a new thread and see if other people are interested. Maybe you or someone else could design something and have it fabricated locally. Maybe it could even be made to fit more than one case.

Lone, is your chosen manufacturer able to do clear powder coating in a pleasing finish?
For something like this, I'd recommend having it done locally by a shop of your choice.

Hey Lone, when do you anticipate taking preorders for this? Because I’d be in for one absolutely.

I love that alternate front, super industrial and cool, much prefer it to the more traditional perforated front.
I can't decide which one I like better. I was hoping to have a prototype of this option, but it looks like it will have to wait until I place another order. I'm really interested to see how many people choose this style over the other.

The blank front was great. What we need is built-in 80mm mounts at the bottom so you can remove your GPU's default fans and put some Noctuas in there.
Not a bad idea. I think that would primarily benefit the GPU and not the whole system though. With this design you might not need a GPU fan.

Hmmm.... I think you could have those "infinite vents" sorta thing maybe.

You could consider slim 15mm fans instead of standard 25mmf fans as a compromise. There are 2 decent options for slim 80mm fans on the market. Noiseblocker makes a PWM fan and CoolerMaster makes a 3-pin fan.

I'm experimenting with both in my Realan E-i7 case right now but I'm struggling to get the low profile 1050ti GPU's 3-pin fan output to properly control a pair of these fans. I know some of the other 1050ti low profiles only have a 2 pin fan header.
