    Hey,
    What are the dimensions and max cpu cooler height supported?
    Good luck with your project.

    Where does the PSU go?

    Looks great!

    I forgot to add it, max cooler size is 48mm.


    It goes near the PCIe slot. The PSU can be installed in lieu of the 3x 2.5SSD.

    With the release of Dan designed 48mm high end cooler this should be very potent apu case.

    And enough room for a 3 x 5" Meanwell PSU next to the cooler.

    Try DMing him. He replied to me. For a smaller run, you probably want to do protocase.

    I have sent the case to prototyping. I should receive a sample in a couple weeks.

    What's the CPU cooler height on this badboy? Don't suppose I'm going to fit a NH-L12s in there am I?

    It is 48mm, so no NH-L12S. It should fit the new Black Ridge. This is a 3L case.

    My other 5L project can fit a NH-L12S and more. I was going to come out with a 4L project for NH-L12S but Lone Industries thinking about a new run.

    IT LIVES! Love the two-tone design. Would be looking great with a black-and-white C7 cooler.

    Looks great! It would be a lot easier for me to buy someone else's cases than make my own. ;)

    But this doesn't support LP gpus. Please make the L5!

    So how do you guys feel about the front button? I myself prefer having a front button if the design and proportions allow for it.

    I like the power button with nothing else. It balances out the look a bit IMO. I love the look of the Lone L4, but something always bothered me about the front being entirely plain.
