So, who’s decided which version they’re gonna get? It’s so hard for me when both look so good in their own way! 😓

Om afriad that the mesh will be to weak with indent or not. Or at least very sensitive. But then again I guess can just buy some spare mesh parts if you sell that as well. That would be nice.

both mesh versions looked good to me. personally i like the one with the indent.

just wondering if the indent will actually had any impact on CPU cooler clearance, i.e. if i put a noctua L12s, the CPU cooler will touch the mesh

What fans do you recommend instead of the NF-A12x15 and NF-A12x25? I just can't bring myself to buy them for the color alone. Which are the 2nd best (that also make a slim 15mm tall version)?

EDIT: No RGB please

How about the Scythe Kaze Flex fans? I think they’re pretty good.

The slim version is kind of hard to find in the US for some reason though. Only place I could find it just in case:

no, it will not affect CPU cooler height.

I thought I read something about noctua releasing black versions of their fans, including the A12, in the first quarter of 2020

Finally ordered lt240, will I need any modification with this or it will fit out of box? (Except fans ofc).
And as I understand any RTX AORUS/Strix/Evga cards will fit w/o problems, but msi trio willnt fit, am i right?

The Alphacool Eisbaer 240LT is already a perfect fit it this case, so I see no need as to why they'd need to dedicate resources to develop that

Americans are having trouble getting the 240LT and if we can get a better pump which could potentially help with thermals, why not try.

It's not only for this case I am thinking about but for all itx cases, current and future. Big picture
