Beautiful.

2 PCI expansion slots would have made this much more desirable

Don't use a 2.5" hard drive to advertise your products. Please don't. It makes your case look older.

Velka 7 from Velkase can fit 2-slot graphic card with max. length of 289 mm, all in a 5.9 litre package.
It's hard to get though

So do 90mm fans.

Although I am generally not big on SFF anything, as well as most things made by Raijintek, I like the overall design of this case, even if it is not 100% perfect.

But OTOH, it does have a USB-C port and a reasonable price, so there's that.. :rockout:

And I agree about the screwed on panels, HDD's and 90mm fans, hello, it's 2020, not 2002...:cry:

They are showing you what it can fit, no harm with those drives and fans. I like it but gpu limitation is a problem.

I think Raijintek makes cool cases, and even when I don't personally like them, I still appreciate them because at least they're trying something different and new. For a while I've been throwing around the idea of building an N64/GameCube emulator and Minecraft machine for my 6 year old niece (probably a 3300x and a used 580 or something like that), and SFF because I just selfishly want to do a SFF build and I really like this case, but it looks like it only takes a single slot card? Bummer city man.

Wish I could get my hands on the new renior desktop APUs so I could consider that route, but we'll see.... Anyone got a recommendation on a used GPU offering the best price to performance?

Single LP PCIe slot sucks.
SFX PSU occupies too much space that I prefer cut off the space and put a DC-ATX board instead.

Entirely agree. The Dan A4 manages to fit ITX+SFX+full length 2-slot GPU in roughly the same volume, so this is obviously not very well laid out in that regard. DC-ATX could have shrunk this considerably without losing any functionality.

It's also a crying shame about that single PCIe slot. At least let us fit a dual slot GPU? Come on!

While I agree, you would be surprised how useful they are in some situations.

Adding to that, imagine having RGB but only 1 expansion slot lol

92mm fans are a staple of the SFF community, and there are some really good ones out there both in 25mm and 14mm thickness. And yes, of course they're made by Noctua.

But that's when you need the go-faster effect of the RGB the most!
