Just a heads up for the coronavirus situation might affect orders.

Bought the 12.8L Seven M1 case before CNY and whole virus situation got out of control and the seller told me it will ship end of Feb. They just messaged me yesterday that the case delivery will be delayed till end of March.

Have ordered the case as described or have you talked to the seller and made some modifications?

Cant really find a case with those requirements, especially front intake fans and 160mm cooler height. Some cases I can find that support some a part of your requirements are Sunmilo C01, SKTC Q1/Q2/Q3, POLARCASE SC, Deng F15 Pro, Mechanic Master C34.

Yes, right on. I think 'unobstructed front intake fans' is more harder to find than '160mm cooler support'.
Of these 3 requirements, I think '160mm cooler' is relatively least useful.
I was looking for such a case myself and I did some extensive research and came up with nothing. Unless something new came up in the past 6 months or so, the chance of having such a case is very slim.

I finally settled on a Deng F15 (for 3-slot support + fan ; 150mm CPU cooler). At that time, I also discovered Sunmilo T02 Pro (unobstructed front intake fans). It is a nice case but unfortunately, it was already discontinued.

How about the Lian Li Tu150? It has pretty good ventilation for the gpu so the fan limitations aren’t as big of a problem.

You already got your case delivered to the warehouse? It should be much faster as they just need to ship it. Mine was told to be end of March as they havent even start making my case lol. Hopefully everything can resolved soon enough.
Yes, it’s in my warehouse. However, there isn’t even a timeline for when Superbuy will resume international shipping. It just says “subject to further notice” or something similar. I wonder when I will approximately receive my case at this point. Could be in a couple weeks or a few months.

Thanks for the findings man! I added them all into the case list.

For Acat3, do you understand the price configurations with different side panels? I am a bit confused about it.

Standard ¥439 = double acrylic side panels with aluminium panels? Choose one of them? Or one acrylic and/or aluminium?
Package 1 ¥597 = tempered glass and aluminium?
Package 2 ¥699 = ?
+¥100 for one aluminium side panel
+¥30 for RGB switch
Standard is as per the photo. Left panel acrylic window
Package 1 = Left panel is aluminium (probably vented), Right panel is tempered glass
Package 2 = I've left a message with the seller, but I'm guessing its two aluminium panels EDIT: yes confirmed, price is for both panels to be made out of aluminium

Last two options are what I also understand them to be

General consensus appears to be 18th of Feb is when most businesses will come back online

Hi di hi, you glorious community, you! I’m after a bit of help understanding a taobao listing. I’ve tried google translate, but I can’t work out if the Loli1 case by Formula Case comes with a riser cable included or, if not, which model is the correct one for that case to add to the order. Has anyone any experience with that case, or a better comprehension of the listing than I’ve been able to reach? Many thanks in advance for any and all help you can offer! I'm really rather keen on it, over (say) the K39, owing to the additional top fans in a more useful size than the 80mm types. The M34 also appeals, but the quality of this one looks higher, and the improved GPU depth and CPU cooler height stands it apart somewhat. Going to pair it with an HDPLEX 200W AC-DC & DC-ATX combo, I think. Unless perhaps somewhat knows what this one is?

The quality of Formula Cases is said to be very high. Anything by SGPC is low quality, but cheap. Judging from the shape of the handle, that last case is most likely a Lzmod A18, V1 (which is superseded now).

If you like this form factor there's also the interstellar i1 and the LOUSU LSIG

Loli1 does not come with a riser cable.
Check out this installation video. Note 5:30 begins to show the riser cable used.
There are some shops in Taobao which sell such riser cable. One example is:-
For Loli1, it lists ''dual reverse'' version (ie HL-002). It recommends 17cm long. But it takes order of custom length too. So, you can order 180mm if you wish.

Check out the B2 by zzaw.

And, of course, the 'classic' G5 Plus by metalfish.

Not sure if these are considered 'clone' enough though, not definitely in the same spirit.
Yeah but not close, neither in quality nor in style. I was hoping they would take Dune Pro and just shrink it to itx size. I guess they need it to ship first to clone it?

Also, what is the best Ghost clone, quality wise with integrated 240 AIO? Is it this
cube X1 or Vikingdom M1S ??

Also what is the best Ghost clone with a large tophat option? I've counted at least 6 clones:
Formula x1
WDEAN DORA R1S
GHOST S1A4 SFX
Ghost S1 mini
Dora1
Loli X1

GHOST S1A4 SFX

Loli X1
The Vikingdom M1S is a lot bigger than the Cube X1. The Cube X1 is pretty well regarded for quality I think. But technically its not a Ghost clone, since it doesn't have the sliding panels. Its closer to a A4 clone.

Out of the Ghost clones its probably going to be the Formula X1 or Dora R1S. The Loli X1 is not available for purchase anymore.

The X1 is not strictly a clone, it has some alterations over the original Ghost. Here are some comparison images from the QQ group, red is the X1, right is an original Ghost S1.





First of all its taller and shorter.



Secondly you can see that the top hat is secured by larger (probably stronger?) magnets



Next we can see that the panel fitment is tighter on the X1 than the Ghost


We can also see that that chamfering on the ventilation holes is better on the X1
