I would assume this would require raising the top panel, which would be .... ugly? Most likely. Though I still like my previous idea of a distro plate/reservoir/pump mount that replaces the top panel. At least that could be RGB-ified!

replacement is definitely the way to go, you'll need a sturdy mounting mechanism to fix the distro-top into the main frame. for reference my buddy had a distro-top made for his ZS OC v1 watercooled build and it came out great IMO

Could you take a quick pic of his rig? I love to see what other people do with an ZS OC V1.
Since this if offtopic, maybe you can post the pic in another thread. Thanks.

Do you mind post a picture, if you have one? Thank you!

can u popst a link please? Im interested on buying one

I need to clarify, I tested it will fit, but I can’t say I recommend or confirm it will work.

I don’t have equipment for riser testing, so I don’t know if the product will be harmful to GPU power wise.

That's exactly what I meant, replace the top panel with something that can house a fan in it. I've already seen someone replace the panel with wood, so I could see this being an easy build for some to try out. It's the same concept as a top hat for the Ghost S1, or the "short loft" on the MI-6. The mount you describe is an awesome idea too!

2021-02-12: Founders Edition (FE) GPU Spacing​

- The PCIe Riser standoff on the Meshlicious is 6.5mm tall and *female on both ends, tapped for #6-32 screw
- To move the 30XX FE GPU 1-GPU-Slot away is about 20.3mm
- To replace both the default Riser Standoff and add 1-GPU-Slot spacing, need 6.5 + 20.5 = 26.8mm, or 27mm
- Given #6-32 standoffs are difficult to find, 27mm tall M3 standoff are easier to buy, using M3 screws to secure (25mm are more common and will work also)

Both 1) *default 140mm PCIe 3.0 Riser and 2) upgraded LinkUP 140mm PCIe 4.0 will work with 1-GPU-Slot spacing on Mini-ITX motherboard



2021-02-03: MSI GPU update​

MSI Suprim X fits, all 326mm of it, so MSI Gaming X Trio should also.



This is possible on the lowest GPU mounting position, leaving 33mm left for DP/HDMI cable. This is NOT enough for most cables. So we have 2 solutions coming:
1) we will provide 3D Print Ready tall feet file on the website soon, these feet will lift the case higher to make room for *regular / straight HDMI / DP Cables.
2) buy angled cables yourself or from our website.

If used with a GPU less than 320mm long, you can mount the GPU at the *second lowest position, leaving 43mm for cables, then low profile regular cables that are widely available should work fine.


2021-02-02: IceMan External Pump Res​

If you have questions about availability, then ask IceMan.



2021-02-01: you could, but not sure you should.​

TLDR, not officially supported, but I told some of you (@Boil) that I would share some photos.

My main gripes with this build are the difficulty in cramming parts in, and extra cost required (a longer PCIe 4.0 Riser than the one to be include for upgrade kit, due to mDTX being bigger than mITX). Meshlicious is targeted for the mainstream, I cringe a little when I think about beginners trying to do this, but if you want to, you can, just harder.

1. Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Impact (Mini-DTX) will fit (3-Slot GPU Mode) and Arctic Liquid Freezer II 280 will both fit. I have done so using SFX Power Supply on LinkUP PICe 4.0 Riser.​


2. Use of low profile straight / regular cables just fine for multiple monitor setups.​

2020-12-8: Photo Updates



Wanted to make a mainstream ITX case for several years now.

Highlights:
- $100-120, will be sold on Newegg, Amazon and maybe CaseKing, and likely more distributors
- 14.5L, 1mm SECC material, movable spine like my FormD T1
- Motherboard IO facing the back
- Up to 335mm *vertical GPU support, up tp 4 slots, cable exit through the bottom
- Up to 235mm *horizontal GPU support, up to 4 slots, cable exit through the back
- 240AIO and 280AIO support

Need to wait longer before I can share more info per my NDA.
What Link-Up risee cable did you end up going with? I just picked up this case with a Asus Crosshair VIII Impact DTX board and the riser is too short.

For ITX mobos 14cm is fine, however for a Crosshair you’d need 18cm or longer.
