I really like the look of this but 135mm height for CPU cooler is really restrictive. That's an 80mm fan at the back right? Most decent 120mm air cooler towers are like 150mm+ tall. :x 'suppose you could use an AIO I guess

Im gonna take this case in serious consideration for my z390 build.

The style is like Cougar Conquer and InWin D-Frame.

Already available but still nobody have it to review.

So, you have the bulkiest case of 2019 and you can't even fit an NH-D15 in it.

Well played! Very design much thought.

At least aesthetically its nice.

There is quite a few good coolers that's below 135mm. Plus this case is more for watercooling, than air.

I like the thing very much. I think they could add more cavities for air flow , the air flow from the front and the top is very weak, and the power supply needs to capture air from the inside. it is small but also the PSU could be placed above at the front and further reduce the height . It represents a good challenge for space utilization . Mouding this casing came to my mind . :):eek:

Now that I take a closer look, I'm not sure I understand the airflow circuit since there seem to be no front fan air intakes. The AIO 240mm cooler is mounted on the motherboard plane with seemingly no air flow behind it.

They have that option on the home page and on the subject page but not in the forums page.

Put the damned glass on hinges.
The biggest annoyance of glass case panels is having to undo those 4 (usually half stripped) thumbscrews and not have the glass fall.
And then having to use glass cleaner from the finger prints every time you touch it.

If the design is properly done, there is a rubber(ized) ring under the screw as well that will hold it in place. I can remove my 4 screws entirely and the glass pane will still 'hang' by those rings (Fractal Define C TG).

Finger prints, yes. Especially those on the inside :p Frankly after prolonged use I see only one big advantage of the glass pane, and that is being able to carefully examine how dusty it is inside and whether its time to clean. Even the RGB helps with that :D

I guess its a learning curve, that perfect rig :D

The current piece of freaking garbage I have has those rubber grommets as well, but if you dont hold the glass when undoing the thumbscrews, you'll always wish you did. Believe me!

But I'm over that crap starting today....Behold!!!! :peace:

The Evolv X case and the MSI Titanium MoBo were two components that I was tempted to buy and just putting in my office to stare at.... aka nerd porn.

That would be too easy, I right click and open each in a new tab, that way I only have to click back and forth between tabs to compare pics.

It's such a nice case. I was able to swap all my guts right over in maybe 40 minutes with no hassle whatsoever due to how modular the case is.
I'm really happy with it.

Something's wrong with all my RGB crap though. I have to figure out what I did wrong.
It's all out of whack, but I have time for that tonight. LOL

My Ryzen 7 1700 sits at 3700mhz and idles at 29c, and is 55c at full load.
Plenty of airflow and a lot less noise than before due to the way the doors seal.
GPU also stays nice and cool. No temperature issues whatsoever.

Next up I'm going to throw in a triple rad and hard tube it for fun.
