Here's a spoiler


The watercooling is fine, but that's not why you got my like...

That view though! 😀

Definitely past due for a cleaning 😅

Even with all this blockage it still performed amazing!
If it still performed amazingly under this dusty condition, then you way overdo the cooling capacity of the system! Maybe you are having 300% reserve cooling capacity? 😷

Bay area? Which bay? You mean, Cam Ranh Bay? Is that why @thelaughingman gave you his like?😷
Liking that people are pooling together to order. IMO This case surely deserves more attention and exposure and getting in the hands of more users, only that shipping sucks!

Haha I meant San Francisco Bay Area. I should've made myself clear since there are many bay areas around the world 😅 lol
I knew what bay area meant, spent a year in Norcal myself back in college 😎

I know right! With the shipping, it brings the case to ~$300 which kinda sucks because there are a lot of great cases within that price point. However, not a lot of cases can support ATX Mobo, ATX PSU, and thicc GPU.

For sure. I have the overhead so I can run the fans at super low speeds. I think I run them at like maybe 30% to make them dead silent. The loudest thing in my entire system is the PSU fan which is usually not spinning or super quiet.

Haven't seen anyone picture the packaging / unboxing process so this is mine. The blue foam piece is such an eye-catcher!

This is going to be my case for the next few years - 14L volume that can house 360 radiator, mDTX board and D5 pump-res combo ALL AT THE SAME TIME!



Though the full steel construction makes the entire case weight close to 5KG. Wish there was a full aluminium version to slim it down to about 2KG or so

I've been doing well with my N-ATX for the last several weeks, zero complaints only enjoyment. Thought I'd share a shot of my portable setup that I'll be trying out when I travel this coming week.



15.6" FHD portable monitor (power over USB-C and video over (mini) HDMI)
Compact rechargeable Bluetooth keyboard (in white to match the case)
Already had my trusty Logitech G502 Lightspeed

In total, 4 pieces with 3 cables. There'll be a monitor where I'm going, so I'll actually only need 4 pieces: the mouse, keyboard, PC, and power cable. I wish it were possible to do power and data for the monitor over USB-C, but with current NVIDIA GPU's that's just not a thing. Maybe one day!

@riba2233 a suggestion for future revision: the riser mounting rail on the bottom panel should be 2 long rails to provide the ultimate flexibility to the user. Right now it is 2 holes for 4 slot card, and 2 sets of split rails which limit mounting options when the card is not exactly 60mm or 40mm thick.

Thanks, I did a small revision like that for the upcoming batch.

What's the limiting factor to make the PSU max length 160mm? I'm thinking about upgrading the PSU when I move from my P-ATX to the N-ATX. just waiting on my active backplate cooler before I swap cases. seems like I'm always waiting on EK for something 😅
