Any plans on 3 slot GPU configuration + 70mm CPU cooler height, ideal for Noctua L12S?

* back panel is interchangeable to support 3 slot GPU or 2 slot GPU
* 2 slot GPU configuration allows for 70mm CPU cooler height, ideal for Noctua L12S
* 3 slot GPU configuration allows for 48mm CPU cooler height, ideal for AIO block pump
Most of the info are in the first post!

I mean, can both configurations be added or implemented? 3 slot + 70mm CPU cooler?

I bought mine from Overclockers UK, they ship to the US and very quickly. Was 3 buisness days to California.
Thanks! I did the same and it was way cheaper buying from UK than from some other places even though they ship using DHL (expensive)... will I have issues (tax) when it gets to the US, or does it deliver to the door no problem?

You wouldn't ask Ferrari to make the trunk space bigger so you can take two full luggage would you? Same here, if this case at this size doesn't fit your needs, there are plenty others.

Can't speak for other states, but DHL delivers to my door no problem here in Cali. No fees or tariffs, just what I payed OCuk.

So, where you will sell first base version? Ssf lab? How I can get notification (maybe on mail?) about start selling?

That will make the case about 154mm wide. The M1 is 160mm wide and a more efficient layout at that point.

If you must have the A4 sandwich layout, Jonsbo has a A4 they just launched.
Yeah, but can I get my SSI-EEB into this case or what? LoL

So I did some looking around to check out some of the latest Jonsbo cases after you mentioned the A4 and wasn't able to find any reference to it outside of a single SFFn post with no real info. Is it an Asia only release? Still rumored? Does someone other than QuietPC import their cases?

I've seen you mention efficiency several times. I'm just curious what your criteria is for efficiency.

I've seen you mention efficiency several times. I'm just curious what your criteria is for efficiency.
At a basic level:
1. Layout Efficiency - components compatibility in relation to volume and foot print
2. Cooling Efficiency - airflow limitations and cooling potential for both air and water
3. Travel Efficiency - how well the overall shape fit into travel bags and suitcases

Ideally:
4. Dust Filtered - this feature has been weak or not available for a lot of SFF cases compare to larger cases
5. RGB Ready - windows and cable management is another weak point for a lot fo SFF cases

RGB is a controversial issue, but I have seen enough visceral disgust towards lack of RGB to know there is a group out there that's RGB or nothing. Not so much on this forum, but they exist and not small in numbers either.

SFX Bracket allows the PSU fan to be oriented towards inside the case or outside the case.

Flip SFX Bracket flips the SFX 180 degrees (SFX exhaust / C13 inlet towards radiator), the PSU fan can be oriented towards inside or outside the case also.
@Wahaha360 thank you for clarifying. This is important and very good news.

Wow... that is news to me. Because i experience visceral disgust towards the existence of RGB. 😅

Business sell items based on what is actually selling. The fact that there are more RGB products (to even components that I think should not have one, like SSD or back of the monitor) means that there is a really big market for it. I hate it as well but I dont deny its existence.

Anyone have an idea on how to custom water cool without the reservoir (just pump)? I have a certain water block in mind for a build with this case but I haven't seen any custom loops without a reservoir.
