So what has changed?
  • Increased height by 15mm to support a slim top fan
  • Made minor changes and solved some compatibility issues

Dimensions: 187mm (L) x 187mm (W) x 370mm (H)
GPU compatibility: 320mm (L) x 50mm (W) x ? (H)
CPU cooler height: ? (Not sure just yet)
Radiator: up to 320mm long

Color code

Light Blue: GPU
Grey: Riser cable start/end
Transparent grey: Case
Green: PSU
Brown: CPU block
Dark Blue: Fans
Orange: Radiator
I recently thought about a case that was less than the side of the NZXT H1 and yet supports a 280mm AIO. So, I spent around 2 hours trying to find the best layout, configuration, etc. I know, I just added some basic shapes to the model but designing it was the hard part. This is only an early model, so it might not be very good.

I have no experience 3D modeling so I'm starting from scratch

Note: I/O on the bottom, like the NZXT H1

Big fan of the vertical H1 layout, so having much better cooling options would be a big plus.

Do you think maybe adding an exhaust fan at the top could help airflow? (That was the big issue with the H1, as it lacked any fans to remove hot air from the GPU, etc.)

So should I extend the top by 15mm for a 140mm slim fan?
