This is pretty much my ideal layout, will be keeping an eye on this one, very nice.

I really like this design. It's a nice alternative to the Sentry 2.0 and Modivio cases. I just don't want to wait until July to get it. I'll be checking back in on this case next year for sure.

Nice design. I've really been digging these console style cases lately.

It only supports dual slot? It looks like it could support 2.5 slot.

Also it seems odd to have the motherboard below the GPU, the riser will have to go under/behind the motherboard and will thus block rear m.2 slots.

What are you putting in the rear m.2? If it’s a drive, just install it before you install the mobo into the case.

Upgrades will be a pain, not only for the m.2 but likely CPU cooler. Also it's a heat trap.

Would be nice to see some real builds, tests etc
If this is almost same as Sentry, I will buy it.

To be fair, having had a node 202, ml08, and rvz02, that criticism would apply to all of them. And really, before I’d even try to upgrade, I’d remove the mobo from the case in all of them instead of trying to do upgrades with it inside. Not really a flaw, but more a consequence of the console style design.

It look like if you remove the ssd’s under the gpu it can accommodate a triple slot gpu, just wondering if this is actually an option.

I have had the s400 and s401 (both console style)and I see no need to take the motherboard out when upgrading the cooler or m.2

In the cases i mentioned i could too, if I had absolutely needed too. But, I always found it far easier to just take it out and swap stuff around. Haven't had any of the console style boutique cases (s4m,s400,sentry, modivo, etc) to compare to though. As for a heat trap, i agree that he may be sacrificing some cooling potential for style points compared to say the far bigger, industrial style, ventilation vents the s401 has. I don't doubt the salvo series would cool better but I'd also imagine a 65w chip and maybe a 2070 wouldn't get too hot or loud in this one.

The P-ATX has a cutout on the back, where you just remove the side panel and then have full access to the CPU mount + m.2 slot. Pretty convenient tbh. My old case I had to remove my entire mobo when I first got an m.2 drive, which meant taking the entire PC apart
