Question for you guys. Pay attention to dimension. The current chassis is 13.5(w)x12.5(d)x3.5(h)" which is revised from the original 12.5x12.5x3" to accommodate for 2 fans, more HDD options, and to account for a wire clearance issue with the gfx card. At this point in time it would be easy to make the adjustments to allow for an ATX power supply. The main reason I'm considering this is due to the high cost of a quality mATX supply. To fit an ATX unit, the chassis size would increase to 14~14.5(w) x 13.5(d) x 4"(h). I'm deviating from my origlnal design because I keep stuffing more options into it, but, the ATX supply would be significantly more alluring to people.
Do it? Opinions?
For me personally, i wouldnt increase the size, as it would just put it closer in size to other similar competing products in the htpc/small gaming case. The allure of this case is its size and ability to fit a flagship graphics card and cpu in the smallest size possible.
Unless of course you plan to offer 2 variants of the case. One the smaller size and one the atx psu size. Which depending on how you want to go about it, could be a good idea.
Nice work so far though
