I love the idea of the ATX version. I think there is a market for people who want "standard" components in an optimized (not "small as unhumanly possible") space. This being said, my personal dream ATX version would look something like this:

  • Sandwhichstyle (duh)
  • Compatible with ATX/mATX/DTX/ITX
  • Space for custom water cooling loop: 5,25" bay for the EKWB Res/Pump combo and space for two 280x30mm radiators.
  • Space for Noctua U12A?
  • Sensible finish:
    • Under no circumstances brushed finish. ONLY anodized finish. Brushed looks cheap and very 2004ish.
    • Silvery and black colours
    • Sidepanels in a) holes and b) dark tinted tempered glass (also c) without holes d) clear tempered glass?)
  • Shroud for the PSU?
Can't wait!

Am i the only one that checks this post everyday to see if any new info is out?

Also how does this case compare size wise to the Silverstone LD03?

I keep an eye on it, until @Wahaha360 gets the Sidearm into production I wouldn't expect to see much here.

I check this thread everyday. I'm just really interested in this case and hope that it'll be the one.

I can’t finalize the design until I finish my other project.

There are some design ideas that must be valises through manufacturing. Until I have the confirmation, I can’t finalize the design.

Hey, take your time! Didn't want to come off as impatient or something.

So I'm curious what everyone thinks about how the MachOne will look when they have a mini ITX version. I hope they'll keep the layout flexibility!

Also very interested to know more, would be happy to pre-order on the basis of what i've seen so far/a rough delivery datte and the reputation of your previous projects?

I haven't read the whole thread (yet) but I would be more interested in solid aluminum panels with the same hole pattern as the front?

Can we have some new updates, please? It's easier to wait on the case when we receive some info. Is the final design done? Is it in production yet? When is the launch going to be? Boy, I've never been more enthusiastic about a pc case before.

This info has been said already. He is focusing on the Sidearm T1 first. Whenever that is released, he will work on this, so this case is a LONG way out still.
