I've got the Case last week and made a test build in it. Just to see how it works out and everything fits into it.
The first impression was great. It looks awsome and the quality felt at first pretty good. But after looking deeper at it and disassembly my view at the case changed.
At first I noticed the top of the case was bent. Thats because there was a aluminium ring glued as spacer (why?). After I removed it, the bend was gone.
Than I looked at the USB ports. Why are they bent? They look like so cheap quality, incredible. And I wondered, why one of them is a bit loose. I unscrewed them and one of those four mounting rods in the case is shorter. How can that happen?!
And one Screw from the outer chassis of the case was missing. Luckily I had a similar to replace it (at the bottom, so it can't be seen).
After all, its a bit disappointing, how cheap the buildquality of the case feels. I really hope you can make it better, for example with better QC by yourself or a really trusted person.
I really hope for a version 2 of it.
@BernardoZ -> is it possible for the next batch / version 2, to make the case ~2cm longer, to fit longer GPUs? I have a few different here, but only one that fits in, because everyone is 1-2cm to long. And I don't think, its that different, to change just the lenght of the case?
But I really like the aesthetics of it. And its not that bad to build in it.
You can squeeze nearly every cable under the PSU shroud, which is great. Even the USB3 cable can be hidden behind the GPU with a short USB3 extension.
Little tip for the SATA cables, use Delock Flexi cables (https://www.delock.de/produkt/83838/merkmale.html?setLanguage=en). The connectors are very short and its highly flexible and very easy to route.
Specs of the test build (notice, I can't boot the PC, because the GTX 760 seems to have some sort of problems):
MB: Asrock Fatal1ty X370 Gaming-ITX/ac
CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 1700
CPU cooler: Noctua NH L9i chromax (with AMD mounting bracket)
GPU: ASUS Mars GTX 760
RAM: HyperX Predator 3200
SSD: Sandisk SSD Plus
Fans at top: NoiseBlocker BlackSilent XR 1R
I checked my USB Ports as well, it looks like they realized they dont fit and flexed off the outer frame...
