We will be releasing 3 versions of the Stratos series to start:

Stratos: APU Case, support for HDPLEX + 47mm cooler
Stratos X: LP GPU, support for hdplex + 69mm cooler.
Stratos Aer: Single Slot full height, 135mm cooler, hdplex (to be joined later)



It will be made from acrylic + 3d printed parts. There will be a whole family of Stratos regardless of your needs. It will be made locally in USA.

Looks neat, glad to see you're still making cases

Nice! Looks like everyone will be happy with three different versions. What are the volumes of each of them?

I was able to get to the stratos page through google search but not through the shop link on your site. Are these cases available for order yet or still waiting to be released for pre-order? Thanks!

Any estimate for availability? Sounds like my cup of tea!

Hey, that looks really good! How much clearance is there between the pcb of the GPU and the bottom panel? Would be nice to know which fans I can use when deshrouding a GPU.

From the PCB, there is about 50mm or so.
You should be able to do 80x20 or 80x25 fan set up depending on the size of the cooler.

@Thehack Is the case a combination of acrylic and 3d printed parts? It seems the corner pieces are 3d printed, as well as the entire back panel?

Literally one more millimetre, and the NH-L12S would fit... Just why?

Odds are it fits anyway. Different sockets have different heights so it's hard to give a 100% accurate clearance number.

Bend it, people used to put them in the 66mm Ghost S1.
It could be done, but that's beside the point.

I'm just wondering why saving 0.05L of volume was deemed more important than officially supporting (arguably) the best low-profile cooler on the market.
