This case design features:
  • Flexible water cooling configurations, maxing out at a 280 in the front, 240 on the bottom and a 140 radiator at the rear
  • Solid sheeting on three sides should make this a very quiet case (front rad is fed by an air duct)
  • Motherboard "tray" can be re-positioned front-to-back to in order to accommodate various total thicknesses of radiator and fans
  • SFX, SFX-L or ATX PSU
  • Completely modular construction for easy "modding" and flat-pack shipping.







To help gauge its size here is the Cerberus placed inside the case:

Possible layouts in a slightly smaller case. Note that the case is completely modular, which would allow flipping either of these layouts e.g. swap the left and right panels (along with repositioning the motherboard "tray").

Like the air cooled version of this design the GPU mounting bracket is now on the bottom. This case is designed to be very flexible with the placement of the computing and water cooling components. It's on the largish size and thus intended for custom water cooling loops. Here is an example setup with a horizontal SFX PSU, 240 and 280 radiators.
