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.




Secondly you can see that the top hat is secured by larger (probably stronger?) magnets
Does that mean the tophat is attached by magnets to the main case, not screws?? How is it even possible?
Also, with Ghost there is a problem that you can't secure the top grill to a tophat, because there are no screw holes, like on the main body of the case (not sure why they did it this way but sucks because magnets are not good enough for security reasons for instance. Does X1 have the same issue?

Man the 2s looks so good. I have been wanting to move down to this size for a while.

However, having a 3700x and seeing the temps in the thread here: chiphell is a bit scary. Do you think there might be better luck with a loli1 instead? Maybe having the top fans could help out a bit. But if it wasnt for those temps, I would definitely go in on the 2s
Ryzen 3xxx loves to spike in temps, but Ryzen 3700x with a Thermalright AXP-90 would be fine in keeping it in check, especially with long term tasks. If my Noctua L9A can keep a 3950X in eco mode at a constant ~71 or so while gaming for hours, a Thermalright AXP-90 (47mm CPU height) will be fine!

It looks like the Formula 2s V6.0 is finally available for purchase



Has a removable panel a la Ghost


Overall dimensions: 22x11.4x18.2cm = 4.6L
CPU heatsink height: 48mm
GPU support: 181mm, 42mm wide
2.5 inch drives: 3x or 1x15mm + 1x7mm
That looks really good, better than any of the other mini sandwich cases on the market I think.

I still think most of these cases would benefit from a few extra mm on top or on the front to allow for ventilation fans though.

Hey, so I've been eyeing these WDEAN DORA cases, like their rip-off of the Ghost or MJOLNIR. Not at all serious about buying one unless someone else has experience with owning one. They look great in the pictures, but taobao cases always look great in pictures. I'm wary of them. Does anyone have one?

Renderings of the "R1S"(Ghost) Actual pics of the "D2S" (MJOLNIR)
(sorry, the forums didn't like the pictures copied address)

Superbuy does give a warning that they don't accept paypal, so they seem sketchy

Basically, I'm trying to find a sandwich-style case that can fit either a hybrid card or a 2.75 slot strix card (which is why I'm looking at the D2S). I'm waiting for the Sidearm T1, but exploring other options as well. If anyone has suggestions, I'd be down to hear them. Thanks!

Check out the ZS A4 on taobao. I got it for my 2.75 slot gpu (49 mm rog strix 2070). It also comes with two back plates for different cpu/gpu heights.

Thanks for the suggestion. I actually was aware of that case, I’m just slow and forgot that the second version supports three slots. Tbh it isn’t my favorite aesthetically, but I’ll keep it in mind 👌

I have been trying to buy warhead papyrus for the longest time. In the end got a refund. Seller is unresponsive and contact person on taobao is outsourced to some form of customer service. If anyone knows any case which has a small gpu with the same layout :


please let me know!

Thanks for your quick reply @prayogahs
First 2 more of an M1 layout?
Last 1 I am not even sure the pictures represent the product?

I have sent a message on taobao to interstellar for accurate pictures. I will let you know if I get a reply.

BTW really nice case list you did. I do browse through that quite often.

Thanks, and yeah the first two is more of a M1 layout, theres not much like the Papyrus as its a unique layout. Sorry that I am unsure of the interstellar as its quite new. Hopefully the seller can reply you.

The Papyrus is pretty unique. Closest I can think of are the Captain S.V6 and Sunmilo S01

Hm, is it 240 compatible? It's 3 slot but looks like no AIO support.

Also another Ghost clone by the same company. Which makes it the 7th Ghost clone I've seen.

Also I've just discovered Captain S.V2. Seem like a great case in Sidearm style but with 240 support and drilled alu panels option. https://www.chiphell.com/thread-2147655-1-1.html

Holy crap this is a beautiful case - I just wish it had space for 2 slim 80mm fans up top like the LZ-A4 mini https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=582590926138

Seems the NZXT H1 is drawing some attention and I just come across a square small tower case in Taobao.
It is slightly larger than the H1 and comes in at 200x200x386.
Unfortunately, it is offered as a fully prebuilt system.

It seems to look similar to the Monster-01/M01. Is it the same one?

It has space for bottom two Fans.

The cooler height is 120 but some say 130. 120 would fit a Noctua C14S.

One buyer even taped a slim fan on the top of the case.

It's similar but not quite ncase M1. But it's much much much cheaper.

They do look alike (the rear panels look very similar) but they are not the same.
I have not checked the interior but one (at least) external difference is the top. The M01 has a 'cover' vs the 'Small White' has a vented top.

where is the GPU IO on these cases? is it a passthrough of some kind?
Any other good alluminium vertical cases by the way? NZXT is steel and looks cheap, but I like the concept



edit: nevermind, it's at the bottom, kinda stupid with the wire needs to be bent

I didnt see it before, its similar to NCase M1 but has a lot more similarities with Metalfish S5 and Mechanic Master C26. Thanks for the finding!
