Do bear in mind the Core G3 has badly positioned fan mounts and is built out of steel with the same rigidity as wet paper.I love what you'd done with the S700, the space management was amazing. But, this new design has a lot of problems with it in my opinion. There seems to be no rear panel to hide wires and with this being a custom build, I'm going to assume it's going to be somewhat expensive. With that said, I think it will be hard to beat out other cases with similar designs at their price points...
For example, this looks strikingly similar to the Thermaltake Core G3 ($79.99) with the only difference being the mounting side(s) and lack of HDD mounts.
I do enjoy your designs though. I noticed you took my advice on the hole punchouts on the fan grills
Thanks for asking. There were a few reasons for this design decision:Great update! I like the design, but why not use the two-chamber design anymore?
I'm thinking of how to incorporate a shroud of some kind to help with cable management but I need to first finalize the location of the PSU so I can then figure out what sub-assemblies I will be making.My only concern about moving the PSU is how much space there will be for tube and cable management, especially for someone inexperienced. Would a PSU shroud help the aesthetics of having it up there? Looking forward to seeing additional iterations - glad to see this project has a pulse.
Did I miss pictures of that build?BTW, the specs on the S700 prototype #2 build are:
2 x 7551 Epyc ES CPUs (32-core/64-thread each)
64GB DDR4 2400 ECC (4GB x 16)
1 x 512GB Silicon Power m.2 NVMe
2 x 1TB HP EX920 m.2 NVMe
2 x 8TB 3.5" SATA HGST 7200RPM
Radeon WX9100 16GB HBM2
Custom Watercooling loop for CPUs (360mm radiator + DDC/res combo)
Corsair SF750 PSU w/ custom-length cables
When completed, I may decide to keep this one for myself but I could definitely use the proceeds for the S402 or the S600.
